Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 10 people and there was plenty of room in this beautiful log cabin. We ate in practically every meal and found the kitchen well stocked. Kids had a blast in the game room. If you are coming here to ski and have your equipment, it truly is ski-in & out. If you need to rent, you'll need to drive over to get your gear though - it's too far to walk through the snow.

This place is together!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped with an outstanding " on the slopes" location. The resort is very family friendly and I highly recommend it for families with young children learning how to ski. When looking at the few houses that line the slopes from the chairlift, this is the nicest one by far. The owner knows how to set up a house for families to have a memorable vacation. Brad Wiles

Family ski house

  • 5 of 5

The Kodiak Lodge was perfect for our family ski weekend. We traveled with our three young kids, and the house made the trip so do-able and fun. Because the house is on the ski slope, my husband and I could take turns skiing with our older child while the other stayed home with the littler ones – literally watching through the panoramic windows with coffee in hand. I’ve seen ski out houses, and ski in houses, but this is truly ski out and ski in! When we weren’t taking advantage of the skiing, we were enjoying the game room or the hot tub. While the house is a little rustic in some ways, it's what you expect/want when you're in the mountains. The kitchen is well-stocked. The beds are comfortable. We’ll be back!

Family Ski Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was spectacular. Talk about ski in/ski out! We just had to push the kids out the door and they glided right to the lifts. This is the perfect place for a family getaway. The game room was never empty at night and the view from the living room window was a winter wonderland. We will definitely be coming back next season. This is the ideal place to go if you have young kids.

Year Around Style

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here in both the winter and the summer. This place has it all. Great fun for adults, and for use by entire families. In winter the fact that it is ski in ski out makes it ideal. The hot tub and fun room, cozy kitchen and living room, exceptional views etc. really make it a standout. In the summer, beach rights, lake swimming, paddling, kayaking, warm sunshine, and unreal hiking make it even more fun (in my opinion) than winter. Actually, I'd recommend this place anytime, in any season. Really is the very best of Tahoe.

Amazing Location Ski In Ski Out & Tahoe Donner Ammeneties!

  • 5 of 5

The Kodiak Lodge is an absolutely amazing place to bring the family. The custom log home is breathtaking as are the views of Tahoe Donner Ski Area. The house is comfortable, spacious and the amenities including the game room provided hours of fun and entrainment. We also enjoyed skiing and snowboarding right out the back door. Just a few steps away and you're literally on Tahoe Donner Ski Area. Ski down to the lodge to get on the lift and ski off the slop to the back door of the house. We've seen other Ski In Ski Out homes advertised but this place is truly that. In addition to skiing we enjoyed swimming in the heated pools at Trout Creek Fitness Center and sledding at the Snow Play Area. This house is in an amazing location with activities, restaurants, and grocery stores all close by.

We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Kodiak Lodge and are looking forward to making to it a family tradition!
