    The Dream House in Truckee CA would be a beautiful house to win and Truckee would be a very centered town to live in because it is close to a lot of friends that live in northern CA and the Tahoe area. I travel by Truckee many time and have always enjoyed the Truckee town that also has some good restaurants and other places to enjoy with family and friends.

    My wife used to live in South Lake Tahoe before we got married at Emerald Bay, ten years ago. We would love to move back to the Tahoe Basin and i n to this beautiful home, espcially since we just lost our home due to foreclosure. It would be a much needed answer from heaven to our prayers.

  13. Beth Fritts on December 10th, 2013 6:27 am

    All I can say is this home sounds amazing and such beautiful surroundings.
    Be a military wife my husband is retired from United States AirForce
    Severing 27 years. We have lived all over the world and we have two daughters and a new granddaughter . We have always lived in temporary housing considering we moved every 3 to 4
    Years. We now reside in Az and even though my husband retired from the military he stills works
    Supporting our family and granddaughter . It would be a complete dream for our family especially my husband to win such a beautiful home. A home that we could actually settle in and never have to move again. I will enter as many times it takes to win this beautiful dream home.

    Winning the Lake Tahoe home would be like full circle to me When I was 6 years old my Dad had a nervous break down and we took off to Lake Tahoe. We moved to Iowa when I was 8 and my heart has always wanted to go back.Dad died last year and we always talked about our fabulous vacation at Lake Tahoe and how we would love to go back.Winning the HGTV home would be bringing our family a dream come true.

  18. Amy Heller on December 21st, 2013 2:21 pm

    Truly is a dream. I’ve been signing my boyfriend up for 3 years now getting our hopes up every time. His 6 year contract with the Army is coming to an end in the next year and we are looking to get our first home together. He refuses to propose until we have our own home but we cant afford to move out of my parents house for another year or two 🙁 We’re both young and have a lot of aspirations and motivation but our potential is being dangerously limited because of where we are located, and I’m starting to believe its affecting our purpose in life. We will never achieve the things we want in life and for those around us living here in Mims, FL! This home is perfect for us, our way of life, our interests, our dreams & goals, and the location couldn’t be any better!! My soul would feel at home & I would flourish & prosper here. I’m in complete awe when i look at the videos and pictures. I wouldn’t change a single thing about this home, but I would however add a meditation garden, bird feeders and a small barn for my horses :’) I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping someone very deserving wins this home, someone who can and will appreciate it to is finest & take wining this home as opportunity in life!

  19. AW Hunt on December 21st, 2013 6:43 pm

    I would love to win the beauty!

  20. Jeanette Orbeck on December 22nd, 2013 12:31 pm

    It would be absolutely amazing to win such a beautiful, luxurious home. ANYONE would welcome the chance to live in such an outstanding place including the home and the area. I wish everyone much luck in winning this home. THANK YOU HGTV for giving us a chance to win such a wonderful home!!!!

  21. Wendy Stamps on December 24th, 2013 5:28 pm

    My husband and I have been married for 17 years and I have lived here (Yuba City) all my life. He worked in the Tahoe/Truckee area driving a set of doubles and would show me pictures of some of the beautiful homes and the beautiful scenery. I have visited there and we both would love to have have a home there. We are both getting close to retirement and would like to win your beautiful new home.

  24. melissa on December 26th, 2013 6:18 pm

    It would be a blessing in disguise to actually win.I have been putting away to buy a home but it would be really nice to say Honey,guess what? Well I guess you could imagine what the rest would be.

  28. lisa wilkinson on December 29th, 2013 4:31 pm

    This house would be a real dream come true. My husband and I have always dreamed of being able to have such a beautiful home over looking both the mountains and water. To win this would mean so much. For my husband is a hard worker and has sacrificed so much for everyone if I could give him one thing this would be it! What an amazing home to dream about.

  29. richard risher on December 30th, 2013 12:05 pm

    Our great friends just moved their and it would be a dream come true to see them on regular basis. My wife visited their a couple of months ago and totally fell in love with its natural beauty ,and Lake Tahoe would be a wonderful place for my four kids to grow up it would create a better life for me and my family

  30. Joyce J Peterson on January 10th, 2014 6:44 pm

    I would be nearer to my grand-daughers who are growing up so fast and it be so wonderful to be with them and their friends. They enjoy all of the outdoor sports and drive up from Danville,
    Sincerly Joyce and Jim Peterson

  31. richie damian on January 16th, 2014 7:49 am

    we always pass by truckee, CA, is there a way we can just see the house just even on the outside? can we get the address?

  32. Esther on January 16th, 2014 9:40 am

    Good question. I suggest you contact HGTV directly via their website. They might offer some “Open House” event at some point, but we do not know for sure if they do. The HGTV Dream home is in a gated community of Schaffer’s Mill ( http://schaffersmill.com/) so being able to drive by easily probably is not an option without prior arrangements.

  33. John LoBuono on January 21st, 2014 9:06 am

    Absolutely the best dream house I have seen since you started this
    giveaway program. Please email how to enter, this site does not
    contain an entry submission site. JL

  34. Esther on January 29th, 2014 1:45 pm

    Hi John, You will need to enter to win on the HGTV website here: http://www.hgtv.com/dream-home/hgtv-dream-home-2014-giveaway-enter/index.html

  35. linda koso on January 26th, 2014 7:38 am

    I would live to be the owner of this magnificent home. A home that is more beautiful then anyone could ever imagine. I am 63 years old and lost my home and will be homeless very soon. It would be a dream come true to be moving to Lake Tahoe.

  37. Debbie on February 1st, 2014 1:24 pm

    How many of you people that dream of owning this home can actually afford to win it???

  38. Joe kasallis on February 3rd, 2014 7:51 pm

    The most beautiful place Lake Tahoe for hgtv to create this beautiful home to enjoy with family and friends would be a dream to win.

  39. Rick on February 8th, 2014 1:18 am

    This is an amazing prize regardless, but I would like to point out some misleading information…

    The official site says Dream Home Lake Tahoe 2014, but when you look at the official rules it says “Grand Prize: One (1) Grand Prize Winner shall win the Grand Prize which consists of: (i) the home located in Truckee, California “…

    No one with a house in Truckee would say that they live in Lake Tahoe…reason being they are not the same place at all, and can be a driving time of anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour depending on which side of the lake you want. That would be like having a house in Reno and saying you live in Truckee, which is about the same driving time between Reno and Truckee as it is between Truckee and Lake Tahoe. It is still a great prize nonetheless but I just wanted to let everyone know that the house is NOT located in Lake Tahoe. Look it up on Google Maps if you do not believe me.

    Plus this website gives false information in regards to the cash prize…it is 250K NOT 500K. “Grand Prize: One (1) Grand Prize Winner shall win the Grand Prize which consists of: (i) the home located in Truckee, California (the “HGTV Dream Home”) that is featured in the “HGTV Dream Home” special (including home furnishings and merchandise as determined by Sponsor in cooperation with the Participating Parties and installed prior to conveyance) (approximate retail value (“ARV”): $1,760,000.00); (ii) social level membership at Schaffer’s Mill club (ARV: $2,400); (iii) Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) (awarded in the form of a check or a wire transfer) (the “Cash Prize”); and (iv) a 2015 GMC Yukon Denali automobile (ARV: $77,000) (the “GMC Prize”). “

  40. Deborah on February 10th, 2014 6:30 pm

    I use to live in So. Lake Tahoe….to win the HGTV Dream House would be a dream to return back to the area as I have beautiful memories of the area and family times.

    Good luck everyone….Deborah Smith of Portland OR

  41. Susie Hudson on February 12th, 2014 4:17 pm

    I know we couldn’t afford to live in the house. I think the income taxes are 1/3 of the amount won. If I’m not mistaken. If federal income taxes were $660,000 and what ever taxes the state would take, assuming you would use the $250,000 towards the federal tax bill you would still have $410,000 plus state to pay. You would have to take out a $410,000 + mortgage on the house plus the property taxes would make A large monthly payment.

    What I am wondering is how much rent can you get from renting it out to vacationers?

  42. JoeyfromSC on February 15th, 2014 5:10 am

    WOW, I wished I’d have known about the tour in time! It ended yesterday! lol

    I am living in CA now and have entered the giveaway for many years..Someone’s life will change(could be me if it’s meant for me to have this blessing) and it’s an awesome thing that HGTV has done for awhile now!

    Thanks for the chance! Lake Tahoe area looks beautiful..Hope to go one day soon or when I move into my dream home haha


  43. Sandy Hannig on February 15th, 2014 10:08 am

    I am sure many would like peace of mind. I know that after taking care of so many homeless families and taking care of the elderly. I thought how great it would be to have my time freed up to go and do more. God said to me one day Sandy all that you have I have I given you. To all those who ask give to them and if you will you do this you will be blessed and not have to worry about tomorrow. I am not sure what it would be like to receive such a great gift. As many of you have stated who ever receives this gift it is a gift from God and from those he inspired to give it. As we take and give back to those around us. Pass it on. So that many may receive the blessings and feel of his love through sharing. If we all had this mentality there would be know suffering in the world. God bless you all for all you do to give back.

  44. Steve Atkinson on February 19th, 2014 7:48 am

    Married couple, early sixties with plenty of time left to enjoy the beautiful home but good luck to everyone else too.

  45. Steve & Linda Atkinson on February 24th, 2014 9:24 am

That could enjoy what time he may have on this earth.That would be a dream.
