Truckee cabin description

Make you own family history and memories in this historic, vintage cabin furnished in period décor. Feel the magic of this authentic, 1930's, ''Old Style,'' Tahoe cabin with the Yuba River in your back yard (literally), in the sweet community of Kingvale (near Donner Summit and Soda Springs).

Avoid the traffic of the Tahoe basin, yet be close to all that the Tahoe area has to offer. This truly special property offers a unique experience. Minutes from Boreal, Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch, Royal Gorge and the Pacific Crest Trail, off historic Highway 40 (Donner Pass Rd.) 10 min. to Donner Lake. Great location when coming from SF/Bay Area (Eastbound Hwy 80) -- easy in and out (chain requirement only applies after you pass the Kingvale exit).

Located near Donner Summit, in a sleepy community called Kingvale, (5 min. from Soda Springs), on Hwy 80. This Non-Smoking cabin is 1700 square feet, has knotty pine inside with log accents, a beautiful big stone fireplace, and separate dining area. No sheetrock. Modern heating. A large deck faces the river. Sunny in summer, lots of snow in winter. Let the kids just play outside.


Kingvale is a forested community of charming 1930's and '40's cabins and unpaved roads - it's almost like going back in time. Enjoy a magical retreat where you can relax and play in the summer sun or the winter snow. There are only a couple of owners who rent their cabins in Kingvale. This is a unique opportunity to share in the magic of this cherished place.

Drive to the front door in spring/summer/fall. Walk from the parking lot in winter -- like the ''olden days'' (about 2 blocks to the cabin). 2 cars maximum in winter.

Cancellation Policy: Full refund 30+ days in advance.
Less than 30 days in advance, we will make every attempt to re-rent the dates and give a full refund for days re-rented. Any remaining days will be credited toward a future midweek, or short notice weekend vacancy.

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: We live in Fairfax, CA and also have a guest rental cottage in the back of our Fairfax home. We enjoy owning, managing, and improving our rental properties, and 'getting to know' our guest renters.

                  Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
                  We fell in love with the historic cabin itself, the community of Kingvale, the on-the-river location, and the ease of access to the Donner Summit area and it's resorts.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Fish in the river from the back yard. Avoid the traffic of the Tahoe Basin but have easy access to it. Conveniently located minutes from the Donner Summit resorts.
