About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Looking for a quiet, yet fun getaway? This is the place to be with tons of activities and possibilities. In the winter you can ski out the front door onto Tahoe Donner Ski Area and then ski back to the house, no need to drive. Or you can go to any of the nearby ski resorts such as: Sugar Bowl, Boreal, and Squaw Valley. Have kids? They can play in the snow just outside the front door or even create a sled hill on the side of the house. Other houses are a distance away so your really all by yourself. In the summer, you can bring your boat or jet skis and visit any of the local lakes, Donner, Prosser, etc. Fishing is only a cast away at all the lakes and Truckee river.

There are many trails nearby where you can take a hike, or even go for a horseback ride. The areas hills are also famous for bike riders and people who just love to walk. For all who love to gamble, Reno is just a half hour away where there are many casinos. Many golf attractions are nearby as well. For those who are just looking for a quiet getaway, you can make a nice fire in one of the outside chimneys or in the wood stove inside.

We will do ski leases for a month or two at a time depending on availability.

About The Owner

The owners are husband and wife who have a family who love the Truckee area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This great house is located directly on the Tahoe Donner Ski Area.. We wanted an unique property that was away from other houses, allows our family to enjoy the outdoors year round. To ski we just put on our skis or snowboards and ski down to purchase the lift tickets and to return home we just ski to the house. What a great experience, no cars and anyone can go when they want or just sit out on the large deck that overlooks the ski area.

What makes this house unique

Skiing, hiking, bike riding, quiet, bright stars, beautiful and snowy days.... Spending time with friends and family in a beautiful setting.

Charming Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a pleasant experience for everyone - wished we could have stayed longer! It was clean, cozy and convenient to many amenities. We were able to ski out from the cabin to the chair lift, come back for lunch and go right back out onto the slopes! There was enough snow for some sledding out back also. Were able to completely relax on the deck with the outdoor fire chimney and star gaze, or sit by the fireplace inside and read, watch TV or play games. There were even dog dishes available for our dog! We had everything we needed, plus some, and will definitely come back!!

Great little house

  • 5 of 5

The listing gives a good sense of the property. There wasn't enough snow for ski in/ski out, but it was still a great little ski house. It is an older house and isn't fancy, but was perfect for my wife and I with our 7 and 8 year old. If Tahoe Donner gets a little more snow, it would be amazing to be able to ski in for lunch and breaks. Hopefully we will get a few more storms this year.

Our Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Had the opportunity to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of Truckee. The cabin was a couple of miles from town. Very private. Just the wife and I enjoying each other company and went into "Total Relax" mode.

Nice stay in Tahoe Donner

  • 3 of 5

We had four adults staying at this cabin in January. Arrival information was sent in a timely manner and we had no issues with arrival. The cabin was as advertised in appearance and was RIGHT on the slope at Tahoe Donner. (unfortunately, no snow, so couldn't use it, but that isn't the fault of the owner!).

There were a few issues with the property (sliding door not working properly, some of the burners on the stove not working, etc.). We communicated these to the owner and he offered to come and look at them, but we were only there for a few days. We have communicated since we left and I feel that he was working to get them resolved before the next renter came to town.

It was a nice stay. the Cabin is in a great location and was very quiet and peaceful. Some of the issues with the cabin took a little away from our experience, but would consider coming again.

Nice view

  • 3 of 5

The view from the cabin is very nice and the hiring around the ski resort. Unfortunately, the house was not very clean for our stay, dusty furniture, left over crumbs in towel drawer and food stains in the fridge. We probably left the cabin cleaner than how we found it. Cabin needs updates, specially the tiny bathrooms. Garbage disposal not working when we arrived. During stormy winters, location of the cabin might be an issue for some people, due to steep and icy roads.
