Love this Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many cabins to choose from in this area and I am so happy we chose the right one! The accommodations were clean, organized & cozy. The cabin was fully equipped with classic movies, books, children's toys, toiletries and a perfect kitchen set-up to make meals. We chose this place as our first family vacation and it was the perfect spot to make memories and it exceeded our expectations. It is located very close to a cute little market, dining and the town of Truckee's main strip-good for food, candy, clothing, toys, and shopping. Also, close to a lovely natural market for juices and bubble bath to use in the master suite jacuzzi tub. I recommend this cabin for families and/or a romantic getaway. The owners of the cabin are very lovely to work with and they have information there to make your stay feel very comfortable. I will use this cabin again for future visits:)

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I drove up from the Bay Area with my two brothers and we had an awosome time. The cabin is very clean and spacious with lots of conveniences. For example we used the kitchen and barbique to cook one night. Also it is very close to Truckee where we went out many times. I highly recommend it!!

Wonderful Cabin and Family Resort Area

  • 5 of 5

We have a young family with one 4 year old and one 6 year old. The cabin was well maintained and very clean, modern and updated with plenty of kitchen ware. This was perfect for the summer having access to Trout Creek facilities, Northwoods pool and we used the marina at Donner lake several time. The open wilderness is just in the backyard with easy access to all the trails in Tahoe-Donner. Loved the views from the deck and peace and quite as well. A little piece of Heaven for summer. It was a easy 25 minute drive to Lake Tahoe for us so just perfect for a couple of day trips for sightseeing.

Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there last ski season (Jan 2013), and we had a wonderful stay there.

The place was clean and neat, it was very comfortable staying there. Kitchen was well equipped, bathrooms had everything needed (shampoo, hand soap, lotion...etc.), although we brought our own. The extra 1/2 bath definitely helped with the morning rush. The owners built the house themselves a few years ago, so the house is pretty new. The master bathroom is big! Nice view out the deck in the morning.

The owners were very flexible with the check-out time, which is very important! We don't have to add on packing to the morning rush, we can head out to ski early and come back to pack up after the day.

The only draw backs were, it was not exactly very close from the resorts we went to (Northstar, Squaw), but i think it was close by the Donner resort; and going up there on the roads on the hill in snowy weather wasn't exactly very easy.

Overall, we had a NICE stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We are always excited to hear our guests have had a pleasant and memorable stay at our cabin. We do try to be flexible when we can about check out times for the enjoyment of our guests (though of course this depends on the scheduled arrival of our next guests). Just to clarify, the driving distance between Truckee and Northstar is only 8 miles, and to Squaw is roughly 12 miles. In addition, we are walking distance to the ski hill at Tahoe Donner which provides an easy and inexpensive option, especially for families and those learning to ski. Finally, we purchased the property with the harsh winters in mind and are glad that our driveway is easy to navigate (not steep). Thank you again for your feedback and so pleased you enjoyed your stay!
