About Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering

We are a family of six and have visited Tahoe Donner often. We love the peace and beauty of the mountains. Hiking and swimming in summer, or just relaxing in the backyard. We love to ski in winter, and so decided to host this cabin to other folks and families to enjoy.

Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering purchased this house in 2012

Why Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering chose Truckee

We love Tahoe Donner to give our kids more opportunity to experience nature year-round, and to create a family tradition in the mountains. We looked at many places, but this one made us feel at home the minute we walked in.

What makes this house unique

Thoughtful decorations, the flat lot towards the end of the street, the big backyard, and general build-quality made us cherish this house. Whether lying in the hammock in the backyard and listening to the birds, or playing a round of foosball, vacation bliss is all around you!

Dirty and unprepared for guests

  • 2 of 5

Our stay at this cabin was disappointing. It wasn't prepared for renters; all of the patio furniture was stored up in the rafters of the very dirty and spider-filled garage. If we wanted to use the BBQ it had to be dragged out into the messy dirt area of the back yard. The sheets were old and covered with hair and lint. The cabin was not clean, i.e. sticky kitchen cabinets, thick musty smell in master bedroom, dusty furniture. The lay out of the cabin was very nice. Neighbors are nice. Not ever going back.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you were not happy with your stay! We replace towels and linens every other year, and we just put in new Ralph Lauren / Martha Stewart sets. We haven't had any negative feedback on our cleaning company from guests or ourselves, but will certainly pass on your information. As for the chairs and BBQ, our home-care company hadn't taken them out for the summer yet. I wish you had contacted us, they would have taken the BBQ out for you at a moment's notice. Like most backyards in Tahoe-Donner, there is indeed no concrete or grass in the back, only trees. Other tenants just texted: "All is fine, the place is wonderful!"

Comfortable home and beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Christmas holidays at this home and we were very comfortable. It has plenty of space and beds to sleep in. The kitchen is stocked well enough that we cooked a turkey for Christmas dinner. Comfortably furnished with plenty of pillows and blankets, close to everything but still feels far away. We would definitely come back.

Perfect relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs (family of 4, plus dog) and we love the Tahoe Donnor neighborhood. I'm pretty sure the bunk beds are queen size, which my girls loved and the king bed was very comfortable! On the chilly nights, the heavy duvet comforter was perfect! We roasted smores, played horseshoes, and spent a day at Memorial Park. We enjoyed unplugging and having quality family time. There was a small issue with the internet, but the owners were quick to help/resolve. We would say here again! Thank you Yvonne and Soren for sharing your cabin.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Foosball Cabin during the week of Thanksgiving with our two children and fur child. The home is warm and inviting with a well stocked kitchen, super comfortable beds, and plenty of room for everyone. We had everything we needed and then some. The kids loved playing on the foosball table and also enjoyed playing with some of the toys the owners were kind enough to provide. Yvonne and Soren were lovely to deal with. We highly recommend this home and look forward to staying there again in the future!!
