"My husband and I recently returned from a 4 night stay at the cabin. It is in a great location; walking distance to the lake and two beaches (one public, one private), and a 7 minute drive in to Truckee.
Lots of amenities, WiFi worked fine, quiet, and dog friendly. Because we like and need to get away a few times a year, we'll likely be staying at the 'Squirrel's Nest' again! Thanks Mary for your prompt email and phone responses!"

"This is our second trip to the a frame. We came in the summer and loved it so much we tried it out in the winter and we're not disappointed. The cabin has everything you need and is surrounded by beauty. This is on our favorites and we will be back again and again."

"We rented this cozy but spacious corner lot cabin for three nights as myself and family were in Donner for the triathlon. Very clean, well stocked, lacked nothing in the kitchen. Great layout..nice deck, with gas bbq..loved grilling and enjoying the perfect evenings after spending the day at the beach which is walkable, easily. Carolyn always emailed back timely and made the experience very easy. We had three vehicles and had no problem with parking. I would recommend this cabin and plan to use it again in the future. Thanks Carolyn!"

"Beautiful scenery and cabin. Plenty of room for all of us and very comfortable. The owner wrote "Guests provide their own meals" very true, the cabin has everything you can possibly need and/or want. Fully loaded from the kitchen to the bedrooms. Smart TV, WiFi, and card games. We didn't need all the extras we took. Sitting on the deck drinking my coffee listening to the birds and the water running in the nearby creek was my favorite part of the day, AMAZING. The bike ride down to the private beach was fun, the residents are great. We drove down to the public area and rented jet skis and they helped us inflate a large floating boat which everyone enjoyed. The new Donner Museum is open and my daughter really enjoyed learning how it all started and sadly ended on Donner Pass. We took a quick drive to Truckee but were anxious to return to the peace and quite of the cabin. They guys were able to fish (only caught one) but had a blast. The owner was very quick and polite when we asked questions. Vacations are never relaxing but I did find time to sit and enjoy, thank you. I can't wait to visit again."
