About the property

Still lots of snow...

Winter's almost over but the skiing is still great! Amazing great room with cathedral ceilings and sky high windows. Very efficient and well-stocked kitchen. Three bedrooms and a loft with bunks provide several separate spaces for family and friends. The best wood-burning stove in the world, and you'll LOVE sitting there while you take in the big, open and private view of trees and the 16th fareway of the Tahoe Donner golf course. We're 25 minutes from Northstar, Squaw/Alpine and Sugar Bowl. You'll also have access to all amenities at the Trout Creek Rec Center, Tahoe Donner ski area and nordic center.

About Kerry Walsh

Matt grew up in Colorado, and Kerry grew up in Wisconsin. Skiing and summer cabins up north are some of our fondest childhood memories. We wanted to recreate these simple classic memories for our kids (and ourselves!) The people who have stayed at our place agree - there's something simple and magical about it.

Kerry Walsh purchased this house in 2013

Why Kerry Walsh chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

It's a classic. Nothing cookie-cutter about it. Wood paneling, rustic floors, antler chandeliers and hickory make it super-cozy and welcoming in winter. A huge deck allows you to live outdoors in the summer, in a peaceful and gorgeous environment. The home is small but perfectly laid out. Plenty of separate spaces for parents and kids.

What makes this house unique

We'll say it straight out: We have no TV! Just games and puzzles and cards and books and everything that nature provides. It's an escape from the everyday world. Even a couple of days will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. (Don't panic - we DO have good WIFI and SONOS speakers for streaming your favorite music.)

The perfect cozy mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more for our family's winter weekend and certainly want to come back next year! We loved the floor to ceiling windows and view of the trees and snow covered golf course. It felt very private, yet its only a few minutes to get to Tahoe Donner resorts and amenities. Great books and games as well as sound system. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable with soft linens. Everyone from our 3 year old to our 72 year old grandpa loved it. Correspondence with Kerry was very smooth and easy leading up to the trip. Highly recommended!

Excellent home!!

  • 5 of 5

Kerry was just wonderful. Very responsive and made sure eveything we need is ready. Home was amazing and beautiful. Very well maintained and had almost everything we needed without running to store. Very convenient for us adults. Great place for snow and just getting together with families and friends. I will recommend this home to families and friends who just want to get away and just hangout.

Cozy and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at Kerry's home and would book it again in a second! The house is different from other Tahoe-Donner properties because you feel like you are truly in the woods, apart from everyone. The furnishings are lovely and the beds & linens are very good quality. The fact that there isn't a TV was a bonus because the whole family played games and enjoyed quality time in front of the wood stove. They also have an excellent SONOS system for playing your favorite tunes. Kerry was a great host and was readily available to answer any questions. Looking forward to staying at her home again soon!

Cozy Cabin - Just Right for our Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this wonderful cabin last summer. It was equipped with everything needed. The inside is warm and cozy with all wood interior and high beamed ceilings. We loved all the lighting around the cabin. A large dining table for meals and to play games, a kitchen with all the essentials. Sonos speakers were amazing. The deck is big and looks out over the golf course. A beautiful view from the deck and so peaceful! Horseshoes alongside the cabin made for lots of fun for the kids. Lots of games provided as well. The owner, Kerry, was delightful to work with and very attentive to any questions we had beforehand and also during our stay. We highly recommend this cabin and look forward to coming back in the future!

Tahoe Donner Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was so happy this cabin was available when we decided to visit Tahoe Donner on short notice. This is our second summer in a row staying at this property, a perfect setup for a relaxing time. Great location, layout, and very comfortable. Quick easy ride down to Donner Lake for a glassy morning paddle. We also really enjoyed the new Sonos speaker system this trip, especially while relaxing on the deck! Kerry is very responsive and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this rental.

Perfect winter hangout for the family

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here, two families with four adults and three young teenagers. The cabin is nicely furnished with comfortable beds, and there's plenty of space, including a great dining table with seating for eight. The kitchen is well-equipped, the fireplace throws out lots of warmth, and the WiFi / internet connectivity is good. We've rented lots of places in Tahoe over the years, this is one of the better ones. Definitely recommended.
