About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

A comfortable family vacation home in the forest with mountain views and easy access to ski resorts, hiking, equestrian facilities and water sports yet private and secluded. Home sleeps up to 10 with a master suite on the second floor (with a jacuzzi bathtub overlooking the mountains) and two first floor bedrooms geared towards either couples or kids. Walls of windows, a woodburning stove and an open floor plan with loft ( game table and foosball table ) complement the nature just outside the window. Deer, raccoons and the occasional bear wander by. The fresh crisp mountain air and soaring pine and fir trees make this a vacation paradise for both the active vacationers and those that just like to relax in nature.

The house is arranged well for 2 families, with plenty of together space, and places to go for privacy. A king sized master bedroom is located upstairs, downstairs is a queen and a 'kid's' room with 2 double bunk beds. Sofas and an extra mattress are also available for extra guests.

It is a 2 minute drive to the Tahoe Donner Downhill and Cross Country ski areas, as well as the excellent Trout Creek Rec Center with heated pools and work out facilities. Guest passes are available for discounts to the Tahoe Donner Amenities. Wifi coverage and land line make it an easy and reliable place to work from while on vacation.

Tahoe Donner is situated at the heart of a dynamic all season recreation area. This mountain community is surrounded by rugged nature. From forests to meadows, historic sites to world class ski resorts, the Truckee-Lake Tahoe area is truly the outdoor enthusiasts' playground. With something for everyone, this mountain cabin is a quiet mountain retreat, a place to unwind and relax. . . . or a jumping off point to Lake Tahoe's casino's and night-life.

* All occupants must be 25 years or older unless accompanied by an adult or guardian.

About The Owner

My wife and I live with our 2 well-behaved and well-traveled sons, Danil (21) and Luca (15) , in Marin County, California. I am a very lucky early retiree after a 20 year career in telecom overseas in Russia and Italy. My wife is an artist and yoga enthusiast.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1998

Why The Owner chose Truckee

Close to Truckee, an old Sierra logging town with a feel of the Old West. There you'll find shopping and a wide variety of restaurants. Lake Tahoe is the 2nd largest Alpine Lake in the World. Noted for its clarity, it is truly beautiful. Tahoe Donner is 20 minutes from world famous Squaw Valley (site of the 1960 Winter Olympics) and 5 other ski resorts. One hour from Reno, 2 hours from Sacramento and 4 hours from San Francisco. Enjoy the many walking and hiking trails in the area. Or just kick back on our deck and relax. Short drive to many historical sites in CA. and NV.

What makes this cabin unique

At an altitude of 6, 000 feet, Truckee has the ideal climate. With 300 days of sunshine annually and 8-10 feet of snow each winter, it's easy to see why the popularity of the area continues to increase every year. Skiing, golf, casinos, recreation and outdoor beauty.

A beautiful mountain view from our master jacuzzi dazzles our senses.

Great Place, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this place and Kevin was very accommodating. The split levels were nice with multiple families as it was not hard to find some quiet space to relax if needed. The Foosball table was fun for everyone. Kevin provided plenty of information before our stay and kept us apprised of the snow clearing activities while we were there. Shovels were provided to help with driveway snow clearing as were some sleds in the garage.

The only issue we had was the driveway slopes upward the whole way to the garage. There is a driveway clearing service that came every day but it was snowing so much that it was completely covered in an hour. We had one car with two wheel drive and another with all wheel drive and neither could get up the driveway without cables on and even then we had to back across the street and get a running start.

Everything else is great and the surrounding neighborhood is quiet and picturesque. We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the Tahoe Donner area.

Owner's Response: Thanks of your review and very happy that your time in Tahoe was enjoyable. There has been a ton of snow this year and sorry that the driveway access was difficult, this is the first year that it has been an issue. The plowing service does a good job of keeping it clear, just hard to keep up with the daily snow dumps! Come back again soon!

Great house and neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home during the summer and it was wonderful. It is set up in an open floor plan and is so nice to lounge around and talk to your family. This house has room for an entire family and the location is perfect. The neighborhood is gorgeous - hiking trails literally outside your door! I really cannot say enough about Tahoe Donner - we were blown away at how family friendly and great it is! The house has a great large kitchen - we did some nights in but we also loved going down to old town Truckee to eat and walk around! There is a huge garage -enough room for bikes, skateboards, etc. The owner is wonderful - very responsive and just an all around kind person. I would highly recommend this house. Beds are super comfy - everything worked super well! We had a great stay!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your cabin. It was perfect for two families with small children. Love the open floor plan and large front window, and deck. We also liked the fact that it's near the outer edge of Tahoe Donner so we felt closer to the wilderness. Nice to have Pizza on the Hill close by as well. We missed the snow but everyone really enjoyed our trip to the mountains.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Cory, for the great review. Sorry there couldn't have been more snow, but fortunately the higher elevation resorts still provide for good skiing and boarding. Glad that the configuration worked for your group and you enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of our cabin. Come back again!

Winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, central to Boreal, Donner lake, Northstar! House was very spacious for a large group. We all had seats at the kitchen table and island. Kids had room to spread out. Plenty of sleep spaces and bathrooms! The grocery store and pizza were close. Best of all there is plenty to do on site....trails, exploring the neighborhood, sitting on the deck enjoying the sunrise.

Amazing getaway for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation spot, which not only met but truly exceeded all our expectations!! The wood cabin is very spacious, clean and cozy; we also absolutely loved the neighborhood - quiet and safe for long walks in the evening and kids riding their bikes. Location is super convenient - all necessary shopping is just a short drive into town, which also has a large variety of restaurants. We really enjoyed exploring various hiking and biking trails, which are numerous and have truly spectacular views!!

Tahoe Donner amenities were wonderful offering something great for all ages. Our kids' favorite was the private beach club on lake Donner, which offered a private kid-friendly beach with lots of water activities for both young and old. We also enjoyed the use of several pools, jacuzzi, spa and gym, all of which we just minutes away from the cabin.

A huge thanks to the owners for making our stay so comfortable! They offered wonderful suggestions regarding the area and quickly responded to the questions we had about their home and the area. If you are considering north Lake Tahoe as your next vacation destination, I highly recommend this rental. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!!!
