About Elizabeth

Elizabeth & Charlie enjoying an event on the back deck of the River Ranch Lodge which overlooks the Truckee River.

Elizabeth purchased this house in 1997

Why Elizabeth chose Truckee

After many years of seasonal rentals in the Tahoe area I chose to buy in Truckee and especially in Tahoe Donner because of the close proximity to year round activities and the great, small town feel of the community.

What makes this house unique

My house is a stone's throw away from all the amenities in Tahoe Donner; ski & cross country areas, pools, gym, golf course, hiking trails, the Lodge for fabulous dining and my back deck and yard are great for summer entertaining.

The perfect Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed over the years at many great cabins in the Tahoe area but this one tops them all. It has everything one could possibly need both for entertainment and in the kitchen. While the cabin is very dog friendly, it was squeaky-clean upon arrival and one could immediately tell it is meticulously maintained. I recommend this cabin to anyone who's looking for a carefree stay in the Tahoe area.

Owner's Response: Those darn complicated electronic devices. It's challenging to know which input to use for which device. However with Direct TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime there are plenty of entertainment options.

Just like home, only with snow!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed at Truckee 4 Season Mountain Retreat this past weekend and felt right at home. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly want or need, and it was very comfortable. We certainly availed ourselves of the snow shovels!! The kitchen is particularly well set up, much better than other cabins we have rented. The owner kindly reached out by email just before our trip to make sure everything would go smoothly with the prospect of a big blizzard in the forecast. There's a hot tub on the deck right outside, and a wood stove in the living room. We loved staying there and would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Record snowfall and even road closures in Tahoe didn't deter these guests. So glad they made the best of the conditions and had a great time. Come again!

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. It's gracious and homey with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. The common spaces are beautifully and tastefully decorated.

Elizabeth is an attentive and thoughtful host. We had a lovely time!

Owner's Response: Even with massive snowfall, weather related power outages and no TV because of a buried satellite dish, I am so happy everyone had a great time and enjoyed the house. Satisfied, happy renters are welcomed return guests.

Lovely, charming cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend and it was perfect. There was 6 of us and the place was lovely. The dining table is nice and spacious to fit all 6 of us plus plenty of food on the table, the hot tub was easy to use and spacious, the bathrooms were great! Plenty of towels were provided and great shampoo and conditioner! The kitchen was also amazing. It had all the pots and pans, utensils, gadgets, bowls, spices - anything you need for cooking - it was fantastic! There was a grill so we definitely took advantage of that.

The location of the cabin was close to Kings Beach, approx. 25 minutes (however can be up to an hour with traffic). We had a dog and it was even great for him. There was a water bowl plus a bowl for his food, and a bed. All in all it was a charming, clean, spacious cabin for us and we absolutely enjoyed the place. The owner was also very responsive, made the process of booking the cabin super easy, provided clear instructions and gave plenty of helpful information.
