About Tai and Maria Boutell
Tai and I live in the beautiful coastal town of Santa Cruz with our 2 daughters and gentle giant of a dog, Kona. Before our move here, Tai lived in the Sierra Foothills and I lived in San Francisco. Our paths crossed in the Sierra moutains where we married in 2000 in a ceremony at a small cross country ski resort he had been managing, called Eagle Mountain. Although we live in a lovely beach community, a big part of our hearts is connected to the mountains of the Sierra. We were fortunate to buy a cabin in Tahoe Donner and have enjoyed many years of family vacations in both summers and winters up here. It has been a blessing raising our two daughters and sharing the beauty of both the coast and the mountains with them. We enjoy renting out our cabin so that we may give others the opportunity to savor the beauty and tranquility of our home away from home and the lovely natural surroundings of Truckee.
Tai and Maria Boutell purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Tai and Maria Boutell chose Truckee
Not only were we married here, but Tai managed a cross country ski resort and white water rafting company in this area. We lived in the Sierra Foothills for awhile, but spent lots of time in the Truckee/Tahoe region. It was only natural for us to want to buy a place in this area as it has a lot of lovely memories and of course, we continue making many new ones. After looking in the Serene Lakes area, we knew that Tahoe Donner was the place we really wanted to be and grow. It has been amazing watching all the wonderful changes and improvements take place with this community.
What makes this Cabin unique
This home was perfect! It was not too big and not too small. We had only a one year old at the time, but knew our family would grow and that this cabin would have all that we needed. We also love the space around us. We have an empty lot on one side and a small A-Frame home on the other that was one of the first original built in TD. The nice south facing deck brings warmth and bright light into the upstairs, where there is plenty of space for everyone to gather for a BBQ on the deck, a board game around a crackling fire, or just some quiet reading time as a Sierrra blizzard blows through or the warm summer breeze whistles softly through the pines. This little cabin has it all and you will feel refeshed and relaxed after a weekend or a week retreat any time of year.

Beautiful property, great location
Great property for Teo couples with three young kids. Everyone enjoyed themselves in the snow!
Lovely and very comfortable cabin. Really felt like a home and had everything we needed. Very close to activities too! Thank you!
Great winter cabin
Plenty of room for our family of 4
Sweet location, cozy cabin, excellent owners
We stayed for a 4-night retreat and chose this property because of the combination of it's location (backs to open space for us to hike, ski, play) and the great reviews.
The location was in fact excellent. The whole family was able to play right out back in the forest and we didn't see another person several days in a row. There's a shallow slope, just enough to play around a bit with skis or sleds, and not enough to be concerning for small children.
The house itself has been thoughtfully appointed, is functional, and cozy. There was plenty of space, and we were able to bring our dog along for her first time in the snow - she loved it (and the house, too).
We did run into an issue when we arrived - the unit had not been cleaned. While that's never a fun situation, the owners were extremely responsive and addressed the situation immediately and with professionalism and generosity. Based on our experience I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tai and Maria's lovely Wolakota Cabin! The location was perfect - close to all the amenities Tahoe Donner has to offer (Trout Creek Rec Center, The Lodge, The Northwoods Clubhouse, ...etc.) and with the most gorgeous open space directly BEHIND the cabin! The cabin was clean, cozy and very welcoming. We have rented other homes in the area for the last four Christmas holidays - and have been disappointed. Wolakota was a wonderful surprise! It was well stocked and equipped with everything we could have asked for. It felt like a second home, not a rental. We are looking forward to our return visit this summer. Thank you again, Tai and Maria!!!
Another Nice Stay
Our second visit and looking forward to coming back in Winter.
