This private, remodeled, riverfront cabin on Donner Summit is available as a vacation, seasonal or sometimes as a long term rental. The cabin sits in a beautifully forested setting right on the Yuba River. Private and isolated, this cabin has only one neighboring cabin (which is usually vacant) that can be seen from the property. Access is 1/3 mile off Donner Pass Road on a maintained dirt/gravel road. Hiking, fishing and mountain bike riding start right at the property.
The cabin has everything you need for vacation or full time living. The main cabin has a double bed alcove off the living area (best suited to shorter people), a galley kitchen, television with VCR (no cable here), wood stove and separate toilet and shower facilities. The deck features table, chairs and a gas BBQ grill. The detached bunk house offers most of the sleeping accommodations with one double bed and two twins plus a climb-in loft with a double futon (very fun for the kids). Total sleeping can be for eight but this is very cozy. Better suited to 2 to 4 people or a family. An outdoor granite fire pit is a great amenity; however, its use can be seasonally limited related to fire danger restrictions (the gas and charcoal barbeques provided are good alternatives).
This setting is a wonderful opportunity for the adventuresome. Biking or walking on the endless Sierra trails in this remote setting is calming to the soul. Kids and dogs can run and play in the woods and river (check for how fast the river is running first). Not suited to those looking for lavish or expansive accommodations. Perfect if you like to camp but would rather skip all the set-up and you enjoy having the basic comforts of home.
Enjoy an "Old Tahoe" style vacation at the cabin or hop in the car to hit the many attractions of Donner Summit, Truckee, Donner Lake, Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe just 10 to 40 minutes away. This cabin offers the best of both worlds.
