About the property

Just built in 2006, it's a large but cozy log mountain home with open floor plan

Gorgeous log home in Tahoe Donner on a sunny lot with a seasonal stream and backing to open space. Set back off the road for ample privacy, this home was built with great attention to detail and quality. The open floor plan features a beautiful custom kitchen with stainless appliances, as well as granite and redwood counters.

The Cabin Availability Calendar is located here and it is continuously updated:

Only 2.4 miles off the Highway 80 Donner Pass Road exit in Truckee, the home is located on a flat lot with plenty of driveway parking and private snow plowing service for easy winter season use! Centrally located for downhill skiing, snowboarding and x-country skiing access to Tahoe Donner, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Boreal -- all between 5 and 25 minutes away.

About Jodi Shah

We fell in love with Tahoe Donner many years ago and decided that it was time that we purchase a cabin to enjoy with our children, as well as friends and family. We enjoy Tahoe Donner during all seasons, and find that the amenities offered are second to none!

Jodi Shah purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Jodi Shah chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We purchased this particular custom log home because of the newer construction and the quality of the craftsmanship. The floor plan is wide open so you can really stretch out. The location of the cabin is also ideal and close to all of the amenities that Tahoe Donner has to offer, as well as minutes from Truckee and world class skiing. It's perfect (and spacious enough) for a couple families...or for a getaway for two.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this home because it is open and bright. It is an inviting space that welcomes get-togethers with family and friends. The home has a great cabin feel, but all the modern amenities at the same time.

Great Tahoe Donner Home!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend with my family of 4 at this beautiful home in Tahoe Donner. Great house...spacious, clean, terrific kitchen, comfortable beds, close to trails/Truckee/HOA amenities, etc. We will definitely rent this home again--hopefully soon!

Perfect Family Snow Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for New Years week, Sunday-Sunday. The location is perfect, right off 80 in Tahoe Donner, easy to get to from the Bay Area. We finally had a TON of snow this year, but the roads leading in, driveway, and walkways were cleared prior to our arrival which made getting in and unloaded easy. The instructions we received from owners prior to arrival, regarding arrival, usage, departure, etc. were right on. Our kiddos loved having their own space upstairs (one had the queen room, the other two shared the room with bunks, twins, and trundle). My favorite was our quiet and private master downstairs with HUGE bathroom. The home is beautiful, even better than in the pictures (and I thought those were great). The hill behind made a perfect sledding track for the sleds we brought up. The downstairs is essentially one big "great" room with kitchen, multiple living spaces, and dining room all flowing together. So it made it easy for us to stay inside and warm while we watched the kiddos play outside for hours. We used it as a base to ski both Tahoe Donner (crowded for holiday week but still doable and much less expensive) and Northstar (short 20 min drive, little more crowded but fun). We had everything we needed close by including Safeway, restaurants, shopping. We had plans to venture out further but the week went so fast and we had so much fun right there in Tahoe Donner and Truckee. All in all and awesome week and we are already talking about when we get to go back.

Summer Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent an incredible week in this beautiful house (more on the house below) to celebrate my Wife's birthday. It was our first time in Tahoe during the summer. And we had no idea how amazing Tahoe and Tahoe-Donner are, and how much there is to do. We had incredible sunny days on the beach at the T-D dock, paddle boats, stand-up-paddle; beautiful hikes close by to pristine Sierra lakes; mountain biking; ropes course and zip line. An incredible vacation that we will make an annual tradition.

The house is beautiful and spacious with high quality amenities, and it has all of the comforts of home. The kitchen is top notch - we cooked most of our meals in. After a long day out and about, it was nice to eat a meal, turn on a movie for the kids and relax with some wine in front of the fireplace. It's the small things that make it easy - plenty of soap, shampoo, towels, laundry room, etc., and there's also lots of beautiful open forest behind the house for the kids to explore, with big windows to keep an eye on them.

T-D It is just minutes from Truckee, which has gone through a renaissance since my younger years. Lots of great restaurants, including our favorite casual burger at Burger Me.

Though I have plenty more I could say, I think you get the picture. Two thumbs up for sure.

FANTASTIC Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the cabin for the 2014 Labor Day Weekend and had a blast. The location was awesome as it was less than 5 minute drive to the Tahoe Donner rec center with pool/gym/driving range, was less than 10 minutes to Donner Lake and equally close to Truckee. As a golfer, the proximity to Coyote Moon and the Tahoe Donner Course was great. The passes made accessing the beach club and rec center simple. As for the cabin itself, it is exactly as you see in the pictures. The kitchen is brand new and very high end should you decide to cook. We ate breakfast in the house each day and then went to Truckee or a TD restaurant. We never turned on the big TV, but the wifi worked great and the toys in the cabinet were fantastic for my 6 and 4 year olds. The only problem we had was finding the house the first night in the dark. Otherwise, we can not wait to go back. Thank you!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many homes through VRBO and have found this to be one of the best. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had quality appliances with a large table that could accommodate our group of seven. There was plenty of space for our 5 grandchildren to play both inside and outside. It is close to the club house for swimming and hiking as well as just a few minutes from the beach. The owners were quick to respond to any questions and very easy to work with. We would not hesitate to rent it again.
