Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Hello! Just got back yesterday from 3 nights in this cabin. We had a great experience! The private hot tub was fantastic, grill was easy to use and the cabin was clean and really well stocked. Interacting with the owner was great and the location was close enough to civilization but far enough that we still felt we were in nature. Would/will probably stay again :)

Great view and a good location. The unit needs some attention with non-functioning items.

  • 3 of 5

Specifically, the batteries I'm the tv remote were dead. Most of the blinds did not function so it was difficult to get shade from the sun during the day which essentially cooks the house on a hot day. It's probably ok in the winter. The appliances are nice and the outdoor gas grill is above average. The driveway is steep and narrow so a bit of a challenge for a large SUV even with a rear view camera. The directions from the owner are quite extensive but did need some updating especially with regards to the electronic lock system.

Nice Location in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Lovely Place

  • 4 of 5

This home away from home did meet my expectations, we were not expecting a mansion.

There were six of us, and we all agreed that it was a good size for that many. More would have been doable, but a little cramped.

We had a fantastic time there nonetheless. It was closer to Truckee and the Tahoe Donner general store there than we usually get. The house also has a very good aspect as far a the sun goes, facing south, southwest.

Wonderful cabin, full amenities, very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We arrived just as the snow began. Over the next two days, we would get almost 3 feet of snow. The owner called because the could see that the driveway was covered, but he instructed me how to turn on the driveway heaters -- very handy! Almost all of his neighbors were shoveling furiously to clear the driveway, while some shoveling was unavoidable, we had it easy by comparison. This made leaving easy, but delayed because 1-80 was shutdown much of the day we left. The cabin itself was clean, well stocked with pots and pans, lots of towels and toilet paper. We enjoyed our time there immensely. Thankfully there were some games because we couldn't leave the house.

I would definitely book this space again next year, if we come up.
