Tahoe Donner cabin description

We welcome large groups. In need of a larger house then check out my other 3 story, 4 bdrm - 6 bdrm, 3-4 bath house in the same neighborhood at VRBO ID#273183.

The house is beautifully decorated with art work, rustic antique wall décor like skis, snowshoes, fishing gear and paintings. My place will make you feel you're truely in the mountains. It is light and bright and open, with lots of windows, and a sunny, private location without the traffic noise of busy streets like NORTHWOODS. Great slope around the house for winter sledding. Big screen in the great room & another TV in a bedroom. Sleeps 12 in beds with 2 to a bed. Room for 3 little one's on the 3 couches. Just a mile from town.

I try hard to give you the absolute best rates. Please do not compare my houses to other house's of lesser rooms or a condo located on a busy street or in a less desireable area like South Lake Tahoe or Kings Beach. There is no comparison, it would not be comparing apples to apples.

EMAILING is best but if it's last can reach me daily from 9am-7pm PST 925-297-7778

For availability PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check it first before you contact me. I keep it 'up to date, daily'. It is by night NOT days. The RED nt's are taken and the white are available. Understand that you can check-in on a 'WHITE' space & check-out on a 'RED' space. On a 'red' space, you would check-out that am, while the newcomers would check-in that afternoon.

Per my insurance co. certain breeds are not allowed. Those with a reputation for being aggressive and or biters. Pit's, Rot's, Akita, Chow, Mastiff, or mixes thereof are not allowed per my ins co.

Knotty pine, rustic, made to look old and is handmade. The kitchen has all the modern equiptment for all your cooking needs. Appliances like; fridge,dishwasher,stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, blender, large Crock pot and a front load full size washer & dryer.
