"My husband and three children and I had a great family vacation in this rental. It was the prefect get away to kick off our summer together. Kids played on the beach at West End Donner Lake's public beach just 10 minutes away, we bbq'd dinner on the back deck, kids rode bikes out front, and everyone had a room of their own. Our only issue was the queen size beds. We didn't find them comfortable. Well, one was more comfortable than the other and we had to trade with our ten year old due to the lack of comfort we were feeling by night two. We packed books and games for the kids, but the house had children's books and games for the whole family to enjoy. Linens were there, a hair dryer, and iron. Arrival instructions and check out procedure were easy and fair. Felt the price was right too! Over all the experience was fantastic and we all drove off feeling very happy and relaxed. We look forward to making it an annual family trip."

"A great long-weekend escape from the valley heat! This clean, well-appointed and comfortable mountain retreat offered the perfect place to relax after big hikes - located near easily accessible trails in Tahoe Donner community and the Pacific Crest Trail. The outside deck was peaceful and ideal for coffee and breakfast, champagne and appetizers, dinner, and trying to count the millions of stars in the night sky - with cool mountain breezes blowing through the phenomenal aspen trees! We were treated to a Stellar Blue Jay in her nest with babies under the front door eave, and chipmunks scurrying about. Evenings were spent playing pool on the fantastic pool table downstairs and board games. The cabin offers a large number of wonderful books to read and movies to watch - if so inclined. Kitchen had all the amenities, barbecue on the deck was perfect, and there was a washer and dryer if needed. Have to say that the beds are so comfortable for a great night's sleep. While we did not use the Tahoe Donner amenities during our all too short of a stay, there are many for use - pool, bike rentals, tennis, golf, horseback riding. You could spend a week there and still want more! We will definitely look forward to another visit to this lovely and centrally located home. The owners are wonderfully accommodating and obviously take pride in their home."

"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!"

"I had a tough time getting a place to stay for our skiing vacation at the end of December 2014. A couple of calls to Ama Greenrose and the matter was settled! Thanks Ama. A great place for about 8 people, conveniently located on Northwood Blvd, silent and very close to Tahoe Donner skiing area. (We went to Alpine though). The driveway is level unlike some other places where there could be an inclination. Good stock of kitchenware, a bread maker machine as well as a humidifier. The fireplace is easy to operate. One thing I would suggest is to have a new set of spoons, forks and table knives - current ones are too assorted.
Overall a nice experience. Would rent again!"
