About Scott Arwin
Currently live in Mill Valley, CA. Have been skiing, snowboarding andy playing golf in Tahoe Donner since the mid 90's.
Scott Arwin purchased this House in 2003
Why Scott Arwin chose Truckee
We had been renting homes in the Tahoe Donner for a few years and decided why not buy our own house that we can go to for long weekends, weekly vacations and also rent out when not there. We found a beautiful luxury log cabin and made it our home.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this home the minute we pulled in the driveway to take our first look at the house. The views of the mountains. The deer that walk by in the Summer. The proximity to many World Class ski areas and golf courses. We were just wowed!

Immaculate and well-appointed, tremendous views, excellent location
Luxury is right! We stayed with our family of 4 in this house, and everyone wants to go back. For many reasons - here are a few.
Immaculate - others have written this, but the house is very well kept, everything is in top working order, and it's thoughtfully and well-appointed - from the luxury linens to the bed to the matching dishes and cutlery to the furnishings. We've been to many rentals in this neighborhood where these things are an afterthought. Not so here!
Location - great views off the panoramic deck, and the large windows bring in the light. You can see the backside of Northstar. Quiet neighborhood on the edge of Tahoe Donner was perfect for us. Kids could play out back and ski and sled with the provided sleds - didn't need to go anywhere.
Fireplace - lounging on the huge sofas with the fire roaring in the evening, looking out the windows over the winter landscape was a fantastic and restful experience.
The owners were very responsive and made sure our stay was up to their standards. Will definitely stay again.
Beautiful, cozy and spacious retreat
Three of us came up for Thanksgiving and wanted a peaceful, quiet escape. The location is great. You feel a bit secluded while still being very close to Truckee. The pictures barely even do this cabin justice. It's spacious while still feeling homey and cozy. The wood-burning stove is beautiful and adds so much to the cabin. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and getting in and out was very easy. There are games, movies and a great TV in both the living area and the master bedroom. Scott is great to work with. We hope to come back soon.
Immaculate Vacation Home in Tahoe Donner
Our long over due family vacation with our three beautiful teenagers was settled here in this beautifully detailed vacation home that inspired us to leisure throughout each and every moment... both within this immaculate home and within Tahoe Donner and Truckee. (Traveling distance to two Recreation Centers, Golf Courses, Downtown Truckee and Donner Lake were very close, never felt as though any of these destinations were out of the way!) Scott & Becky have thought of everything...nothing has been left unturned. Upon entering the home, our family was in awe, the log walls fill your hearts with warmth as well as when you gaze out the front windows while enjoying cocoa in front of the new wood-burning stove! Sunsets and Star gazing were glorious as we enjoyed dinner outside on the massive deck! And you will be so delighted to witness many deer with does any time of the day! My daughter loved each one that came to visit the property! Days that will be remembered forever!! Entering the master bathroom, the Santa Fe/Cabin feel, I was immediately blown away with a wall portrait that is one of my favorite quotes, “Dance as though no one is watching you,
Love as though you have never been hurt before,
Sing as though no one can hear you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.”― Souza
Instantly I knew this was where our family was meant to vacation!!
The pride and love the owners have poured into their home can be felt as you enter, as you unload, as you cook, as you relax, as you breathe, sleep, play games, enjoy family-time, enjoy one another listening to wonderful music all ready for your ears!! Departing was our only upset for we didn't want to leave our home away from home!!
Thank you so much for sharing your sanctuary with our family Scott & Becky!!
"Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world,
the heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own.
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the mornin' brings,
But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own." ~ Grateful Dead
lovely cozy getaway!
This is a beautiful cabin with a warm and rustic touch nestled in a convenient and woodsy surrounding. Owner was very easy to contact and responds promptly to questions and needs. The house is very clean and contains all that you need for a vacation getaway.
Excellent house, great amenities and very convenient
This is a great place to stay for long or short vacations. The house is well furnished with modern furniture and appliances. It has an awesome kitchen, utensils, cable, internet, etc and great views from the balcony. Very close to Tahoe-Donner Ski Area. Great for young kids learning to ski.
Its a good 4-5 miles away from the town center so stock up when you reach the place.
its only a few minutes from Tahoe Donner ski area
