Homey mountain house!
Convenient to both northstar and west side mountains.
I am delighted to have such great, considerate guests at my house. You are welcome back every time!
We had a quick family getaway to this cabin and could not have been happier. Bruce was wonderful to work with - he is kind, reasonable, and accommodating. The cabin was roomy, welcoming, and comfortable, with an easy drive in to town. The views were amazing and the neighborhood is quiet. The cabin is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your time. All of that combined with a hot tub - our trip was perfect! Thank you to the Powell Family for being so gracious and sharing this slice of perfection.
It is a pleasure to have nice guests! Thank you!!!
Cozy Cabin in Truckee
I just spent MLK weekend in Truckee and we loved this cabin. It was clean, cozy, and everything was as advertised. There are plenty of places to hike around there (there unfortunately wasn't much snow for me this weekend but we still had a blast). Plus it's close enough to town to take an Uber or Lyft if you don't want to worry about driving after dinner and drinks in Truckee. One of the things I really appreciated was the binder with the instructions for everything which also included local menus and scenic hikes. Overall, fantastic experience.
It is always a pleasure to host nice guests like yourselves. I hope you will return.
A very restful stay.
Had hoped to catch some snow during this week before Christmas. Unfortunately, there was only a light snowfall the day prior to our departure, so we did not have as much snowplow as we wanted.
Otherwise, the house was lovely with ample space for our party of three. We cooked a lot and this home was perfect for this. I have not stayed at a cabin this well equipped, ever.
They digital door entry was easy to set-up, there was adequate heating through the Nest controlled central furnace, the wood stove burner , and/or the space heaters to keep the upper bedroom warm. The hot tub worked well and the gas grill fired up easily.
The only thing I would note is that our four wheel drive vehicle was very helpful to get up the somewhat steep and curved driveway.
I would stay here again in the future.
thank you for your review. I always do my very best to make sure every guest is happy. We installed an automatic driveway electric heater to make it easy for our guests to get to the house without shoveling a lot of snow. I'm glad that system worked great for you during your stay. During the last winter when we had more than 60 feet of snow, it was really very valuable!!!!
Nice Location in Quiet Neighborhood
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. The property is well cared, for if not updated like so many area rentals. We didn't use the kitchen but could have. Everything was clean and the owner was responsive when we contacted him about getting into the house (we didn't get the key code).
The location is great. Nice forest views from the house(especially from master bedroom upstairs) and deck. Quite neighborhood. Comfy king bed in the master. The hot tub on the deck is nice. Great for stargazing. Truckee is a wonderful little town and Donner Lake is beautiful. We enjoyed the easy walk along the China Cove trail and relaxing on the beach.
Would definitely return.
Thank you for your review, and I look forward to having you visit again.
Great family cabin!
The house was comfortable and well stocked for our family. We would definitely go back and stay here!
thank you for your review. I do everything I can to make my guests happy and am very glad that you enjoyed your stay. Please come again!
