Great Place to stay!
This was a great and very comfortable place to stay. It Gad everything we needed!
Property was clean and had enough room for 14 adults to exist peacefully and restfully.
We rented this property for a weekend getaway and had an amazing time. The kitchen had everything you’d need to make a great breakfast or dinner for a group (pot, pans, etc.). WiFi was strong and reliable and the proximity to Boreal was great! I would definitely rent again.
Good location, decent house
Pros: location is great for skiing. Lots of kids games and activities. Fun kids room.
Cons: kitchen appliances were old and outdated. Some of the plates/bowls/spoons in the cabinet needed rewashing. Most of the cd’s/DVD’s were scratched and did not work.
A Must Rent! Perfect location, Clean Cabin, Excellent Amenities, Kid Freindly, Responsive Owner.
We loved our stay and we will definitely be renting again! I am so thankful we found this cabin to rent and at a very reasonably rate. We rented the cabin from April 6, through April 10, (4 nights). The owner Alicia was really nice and very responsive. She answered all my questions and the cabin information form that she sent me once I booked had everything I needed to know about the cabin, travel direction, rules of house and departure information. She also has a copy of it on the refrigerator in the cabin, which was helpful.
The cabin looks just like the photos on the rental site, and has all it says it has; It’s so nice, spacious and very clean. The décor for the cabin is perfect for a cabin.
We had 6 adults and 4 kids and there was plenty of room. The 4 bedrooms were all nice and cozy with plenty of blankets, pillows but one of the rooms was great for the kids as it was set up with two twin beds, one full bed and a pull out sofa. The room has lots of toys, video games, movies, air hockey and more. Kids loved it! The kids had their time and the adults had their time downstairs, enjoying board games, cards and movies.
The living room was cozy, spacious and kid friendly. I have a 3 year old grandson and there was nothing he could get into or wanted to get into. We all loved the fireplace, it really warmed up the house and there was plenty of wood and fire starters. It made the house so warm and cozy.
The weather was a bit rough two days of our stay, but we didn’t care! We didn’t have to drive anywhere, we had our own snow park in the back of the house. We had so much fun, sledding and building snowmen. The kids had a blast and so did the adults.
We did head out to Truckee on Saturday which was a beautiful drive and downtown Truckee is such a cute town.
I’ve been trying to think if there is anything I would change or if there was anything that was missing in the cabin, and no my family and I do not have one complaint or thing we would change. It was perfect!
Alicia, we will be renting again very soon and you should be receiving a few booking referrals. My friends saw my FB post and are interested in renting the cabin now.
Thank you for allowing my family and I to rent your beautiful cabin and make new memories!
Thank you again!
Great cabin for a large family
We were three families with multiple kids looking for a vrbo to take the kids skiing. This cabin more than met our needs - spacious, lots of room for the kids to play, warm and cozy. The kids had a great time. The cabin is stocked with winter jackets, ski equipment which was available for us to use. Will definitely consider this place again for next winter.
Great house, excellent amenities
The house is spacious with plenty of room for 8 people and 4 kids. There were also plenty of games and toys around the house to entertain everyone. The kitchen was decent and bathrooms were adequate. There were extra ski clothes to borrow, which was a plus for kids who are constantly outgrowing their clothes. The best part was that the management was very responsive to our questions. From helping us change a lightbulb to lighting the fireplace, their response was always prompt and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
Easy access on to I-80. Winter: Downhill skiing, snowboarding, X-cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, sledding. Less than a 10-minute drive to Sugar Bowl, Boreal Ridge, Soda Springs, Donner Ski Ranch, Royal Gorge. 30 minutes from NorthStar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Homewood.
SUMMERS: Great place getaway to relax and spend time with friends and family, pets are welcome too! Our cabin is close easy to moderate hiking trails, accessible and close just a hop sit & jump to the Yuba river. The river flows until early September so you can float down it most of the summer. There is a lot of summer recreational activities like museums, historical tours on Donner Summit (Donner Party), State Park (Donner Lake) they also offer historical lakefront mansion tours, and sightseeing. Summer temps range from 70-90 degree it does cool down at night. In may and June often there are a few patches of snow left over from winter.
