Our home is so warm and inviting, you may never want to leave. It's beautifully decorated, including a brand new kitchen and lower level bathroom remodel that offer the perfect combo of modern and rustic. Floor to cathedral ceiling windows and the ultimate wood-burning stove will lure you to sit by the fire and gaze out at the snow and pines. The cook's kitchen is very well-appointed. No matter what you need, we have it! With three bedrooms and a loft, there are comfortable sleeping spaces for eight. Tahoe Donner's winter amenities are amazing. And we're within 30 minutes of Squaw, Alpine, Sugarbowl and Northstar.

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 magical about it.
Kerry Walsh purchased this House in 2013
Why Kerry Walsh chose Truckee
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.)
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Beautiful relaxed home in peaceful setting
This house is beautifully designed, comfortable, well-stocked, and very nicely landscaped with many small touches that catch the eye. Our family of four settled in easily; nothing was hard to figure out, including wifi. The kitchen is well-stocked on all fronts. The kitchen, dining, and living area are in one large room, with big windows looking out to the forested setting, with plenty of comfortable seating. Kerry was easy to deal with, very helpful, and responsive. We would gladly come back, and recommend this very highly from the numerous houses we have stayed in.
It’s so good to hear that you appreciated these details, Charlie. We love to learn that people are enjoying their vacation in our space. You were a great guest too! I hope you and your family will come back and visit again in the future.
a perfect relaxing getaway!
We loved this house so much - the decor is exactly what you would want in a Tahoe cabin - charming, tasteful, and cozy. The house is very well laid out - lots of space to hang out in a group but also plenty of privacy. We had some lovely walks on the golf course in the evening, and spent a lot of time hanging out on the deck and at the horseshoe pit. Will be back to take advantage of the ping pong table and the Donner amenities!
We are so happy to hear that you loved our house, Molly. I consider this high praise, coming from an interior designer.😊 You are more than welcome to come again. (The house is extra cozy in winter!)
Highly recommended! Beautifully remodeled kitchen fully equipped with tasteful dishes. Very comfortable for two families of 4. Downstairs bathroom is tastefully remodeled as well. Beds were comfy as it wasn't too hot to sleep. The pix don't do the justice. Easy access to Tahoe Donner ski resort. Owners responded fast. Couldn't have asked for better experience!
Great Winter Escape!
We had a wonderful stay at the cabin! Perfect for the two families - adults and kids. There was plenty of room for all. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location was so convenient- near all the ski resorts, downtown Truckee. Kids had a blast playing in the snow and we even tried putting together a puzzle or two. Thanks so much for the getaway!
The perfect cozy mountain cabin
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!
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.
Home includes guest privileges at Trout Creek Recreation Center, and access to an incredible number of winter and summer activities for all ages. Town of Truckee is a real mountain town with great restaurants, bars and shops.
