Tahoe Donner house description
Our family-friendly Cabin is a classic, Chalet-style cabin in a quiet, forest setting. It is a handsome, spacious (2,200 Sq. Ft) mountain home with 25 Ft. ceilings. Our home is recently-remodeled w/ 3 BR / 2 Bath + Loft (with Queen Sofa Sleeper) & tastefully-appointed with rustic cabin-furnishings. This is the perfect Mountain Getaway on a quiet destination street (rather than thoroughfare) right next to Greenbelt in Tahoe Donner. The house can sleep up to 10-12 guests.
House is 3-hours from San Francisco - door-to-door; 5-min to Tahoe Donner Ski Resort; 15-min to Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Soda Springs; 20 min. to Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, & Lake Tahoe.
When we purchased & furnished this house, we wanted to be very comfortable and we selected the best, rustic Cabin furniture, mountainy cabin-bedding (w/ Down Comforters, Down Pillows, etc), high-thread-count sheets, hotel-style towels, toiletries & more ... All to ensure we as owners feel extremely comfortable in our own 'Mountain Hideaway'. We love our 'Home Away From Home' and hope you will too ...

Convenient Location Near Ski Resorts & Comfy Home
My friends and I had a really great experience at the Tahoe Donner Luxury Cabin. The location was good, just a quick drive to Truckee. It fit our large group comfortably and everything was clearly laid out with great instructions for all amenities in the home. Loved the cozy indoor fireplace and hot tubbing under the moonlight! Will definitely stay here again!

Family-Friendly Cabin in Tahoe Donner!Guest comment entered by owner
Family-Friendly Cabin in Tahoe Donner!
Great stay. Place is awesome for family. We were 6 people and the place was perfectly set up and a great warm and cozy home. We really enjoyed the stay and the attention to detail around the house was awesome, with signs and tags on how to use everything. The location was perfect. Whilst not ski in ski out it's was pretty close to Truckee yet still had the idyllic "cabin" in the mountains feel and easy quick access to the Tahoe Donner rec center, which is very impressive. Don shared a lot of great information and great places for Tahoe newbies and I'm sure some gems for repeat visitors too. All in all thumbs up and I definitely recommend staying here, especially with family.

Very comfortable cabin with great amenities!
My boyfriend and I went up for a long weekend and had a lovely stay at the cabin. There were clear instructions on how to use everything and we definitely enjoyed all the amenities, spending most of our time in the sauna and reading by the wood burning stove. Honestly the bed in the master bedroom is so ridiculously comfortable we had trouble getting out of bed in the morning! *I would definitely recommend having at least snow tires if you come in the winter, we had a rental car and going over the pass was a little unsettling.

We had a fun filled summer vacation at this great home which is located close to Donner Lake, grocery store, good restaurants, rec center, and much more. I am thankful I found this listing and how responsive Don was to making sure all was perfect for us. Can't say enough about this place and the owner. The home is well kept, clean and fun to stay. We have a family of 4 (two young boys) and another family of 4 stayed with us. This was just right. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Great family cabin!
Great family cabin!
We stayed at this cabin over President's Day weekend and had a great time! There were 5 adults and 5 kids in our group and we all had a comfortable place to sleep. We played lots of games at the huge kitchen table! We also enjoyed use of the rock salt hot tub. The cabin was very clean upon our arrival and the owner was easy to work with. We would stay here again!

Great Cabin - Look Forward to Returning Next Time
Hi Don, We really had a great time at your vacation home and would love to be back next winter. Just want you to know that we didn't turn off the water valve since we started the wash cycle for white towels and the dishwasher. They were still running when we left yesterday morning. We followed everything else that was on your check-out list. Look forward to returning again next year, Thanks for everything,

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
LOCATION: The Cabin is located on a very quiet street, the house is also very easily accessible from Highway-80 & close to Donner Lake. HOUSE: We looked at literally HUNDREDS of homes over a 4-year span, and this was the only one we fell in love with. The house is a Chalet-Style, with 30-feet pine-vaulted ceilings, and it also has an Indoor Sauna Room - which is great to have in a Cabin - esp. around fall, winter, spring. House also has a full-size Loft which serves as a 2nd Living Room, plus a 500 Sq. Ft. Private Deck on 2nd Level - perfect for sitting outside & that's also where we installed a new Hot Tub. TAHOE DONNER: Less than 30-min to all major North Tahoe ski resorts. Year-round activities for adults & kids. All the exclusive amenities for property owners & guests. Tahoe Donner is also only 3-hours from San Francisco. HOUSE CONDITION: This was one of the few homes we saw that was very well cared for. We made additional investments to install all new stainless appliances, new Hot Tub, new bath remodel, etc & continue to take care of the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Newly Remodeled Home/Cabin: High-Ceilings (30 Feet Pine-Vaulted) - Very Cabin-like, Very Sunny: Lots of Large South-Facing Windows, House Layout - Open-style w/ accessible kitchen, Spacious (2,200 Sq.
