About F. Brydon

Originally from Scotland we have an appreciation for the mountains and love the outdoors. We enjoy skiing, biking, hiking and photography.

F. Brydon purchased this cabin in 2011

Why F. Brydon chose Truckee

We moved to the Bay Area in 1998 and have been skiing in the Lake Tahoe area since then. We have stayed in Tahoe Donner many times and have enjoyed the convenient location to all the Tahoe ski resorts and the numerous amenities and recreational opportunities.

What makes this cabin unique

Keep your eyes open for the family of beavers that visit our yard and take a walk over the creek to view their dams.

Nice home and good location, but...

  • 3 of 5

the bathroom upstairs was clogged and literally unusable. We had to spread towels on the ground to absorb the overflowing water. And instead of getting a discount for it, we were charged an extra $25 from our deposit for the *mess*. Beware!

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the guests did not inform us of an issue with the toilet while they were staying at the property - we could have had the problem fixed and allowed them to have had a more comfortable stay. The $25 was charged for extra cleaning required throughout the house.

Cozy house for the perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been more perfect! As we settled in for the weekend, we were happy to find that the house came complete with all amenities one would need and had great heating to us keep cozy during the cold nights. The host, Fiona, was incredibly responsive and friendly. We would definitely consider this place for our next visit to the Tahoe area.

Thanks Fiona!

Christmas 2017 in Truckee

This is our second Christmas in a row at this cabin. It is truly wonderful. Lots of room, very comfortable, great location, great outdoor activities all around (lots of snowball fights), and well stocked with just about everything you need.

Lovely home,loved all the bathrooms!

  • 4 of 5


I thought I had done a review of our stay but I guess not. Very nice home,spacious, great deck to enjoy the pine trees and stream. Bedrooms were good size and slept all of us.

Weather was great and Donner Lake was just down the street.

I am in my sixties now but as a child, my sisters and I used to spend our summer vacations at Donner Lake so now we bring our adult children and grandchildren to enjoy

Tahoe-Donner. So many memories and we made more this recent stay celebrating my youngest daughter's 40th birthday. It was a short but wonderful weekend!

Great Sales Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us assembled for a two-day company retreat. This home was perfect for our event. The home was clean, the beds and furniture comfortable, and the creek was still flowing strong in late August. The weather was pleasant so we were able to enjoy the back deck as well. Fiona was responsive and accommodating, and we really enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend this location for any small event or family getaway!!
