"We really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, comfortable house with a nice open floor plan upstairs. The owner, Steve, was very friendly, available when needed, and quick to answer any questions. The kitchen is well-stocked, the hot tub is excellent, and the beds are comfortable. I hope to be back soon."

"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)."

"House was as described/pictured. The home/neighborhood is very quiet and what a beautiful, picturesque setting. If you walk around the block (on Skislope), you will get good exercise and amazing views of the mountains and valley. The beds were comfortable. Nice linens, bath towels and beach/pool towels provided. Small kitchen, but fine for our family of four. Owners provide lots of pantry items like foil wrap, plastic baggies, spices, condiments, coffee filters & sugar. Plus there were all the pots, pans and utensils you could need. Great having the option of spending time at one of the private pools or going to the private beach at Donner Lake."

"Location, location! The house is fantastic. It's large, extra clean, very nicely decorated. From there, it's a short drive to a community center where the kids had fun in the pools, or to Squaw Valley for a hike, or to Kings Beach for a swim in the lake.We are already thinking about when we can come back to Tahoe. Thanks Tina for letting us stay in your house. The only thing missing is a BBQ and one or two lounge chairs on your beautiful deck."
