Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We have lived in the Tahoe area for decades and now just come and go part time. We love the outdoors and have never found a better place to live or visit than right here. Recreation opportunities and the unparalleled beauty of nature abound in this corner of the High Sierras. We are most at home here. We are glad to share our little piece of heaven with others when we are not using it.

Why the Owner Chose Soda Springs, CA, USA:
We love the tall pines, the beauty of nature surrounding this precious cabin and the raging waters or peaceful serenity of the Yuba River right at our door step (depending on the time of year). This property offers the outdoor opportunities and feel of camping without all the fuss. Sleep in a comfortable bed, enjoy a real shower, cook in a fully appointed kitchen or BBQ outside. All ready to go with no set-up. We hike, mountain bike, kayak, fish or tube right from the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The sound of the rushing Yuba River as it rolls over granite boulders in the spring is one of the highlights as you hike from this cabin. In the winter we love to cross country ski up the river and see the ice formations dance in the water. This is a peaceful place to just relax. We have had wonderful times with family and friends isolated away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. It feels like you are far away from everything in this "Old Tahoe" vacation retreat. In reality you are just a few miles to four ski resorts and Woodward Tahoe, a 15 minute drive to Truckee and Donner Lake, and 30 minutes or so to Squaw Valley, Northstar and Lake Tahoe. Choose the best of all Tahoe has to offer or just sit on the deck and watch the trees grow and the river roll by.
