"We've stayed at this very comfortable, well stocked, warm, cozy house twice now and both times it was 5 stars. The owners take pride in making their cabin a true home-away-from-home oasis. The kitchen has more than you could possibly need, games and puzzles and movies etc for both kids and adults, wifi, a HOT TUB, towels, washer/dryer etc. The little hill behind the house is a fun mini-sled hill for the kids (when there is snow) and a cool place to explore (when there is no snow -- like this recent FEB-2015 trip). We also walked to Trout Creek rec center (since there was no snow and it was fairly easy to walk along the cart path of the golf course). It was a fairly easy walk for my 8 and 6 year olds. The snow park was transformed into a "grass/lawn park." They had a bounce house, Frisbee golf, and all sort of other little games set up for the kids.
I would say also that this cabin/house is enormous for a family of 4 and easily could sleep 8 as suggested. The loft is a good play area for the kids! The wood burning stove heats the cabin so well that you will never be cold!
We love Tahoe Donner and we love The St. John's Retreat. We really needed some R&R and it certainly delivered (again)."

Exceptional organization. directions and very clean
"The only drawback I found was not having a stove. There is a hot plate, but it had a whole set of directions I didn't feel like dealing with. Other than that, the place was super clean, the directions to everything was super well thought out and overall, I was very happy with everything."

"We stayed for the New Year's Eve week and had a wonderfull time at this fantastic property. The owners have thought of all small details that would make a difference. If you are looking for a top quality standard, this is the property. Owner's detailled explanations are very accurate of what to expect. Comfortable and luxurious home with great furniture, views and great location. Perfect for skiing. 20 minutes away from squaw valley, northstar or sugarbowl."
