About the property

Warm and charming cabin with perfect layout for families

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. Winter is coming (we hope!) and 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.)

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.

Excellent Family Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a fabulous five days in this cabin. Everything was as pictured and described. The beds are extremely comfortable and dressed. The well equipped kitchen and dining area made it possible to enjoy family meals. We enjoyed the family games, the Tahoe-Donner trails, hiking, and the town of Truckee. We appreciated the quiet "neighborhood" and the location along the golf course. Out of town, yet close enough to to Truckee and all our adventures whether it be hiking, skiing, swimming, or just relaxing. The owners were very easy to work with and communication was excellent.

All you expected and more

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a weekend at this home and it was wonderful! Beautiful deck overlooking the 16th hole at Tahoe Donner golf course, wood burning stove and wonderful great room for family time. The house has all of the amenities you want or need. I'm always a bit nervous about the beds in rental homes but the beds were very comfortable. The home is well kept and cared for. One note, there is no TV which in my opinion is a great bonus as the house has plenty of games, puzzles and books. Great family time for all and if the little ones have to have their fix, the wifi works great and was very simple to synch to all of our laptops. Why watch tv when you can play games and then go for a walk under the stars in Tahoe?

The owner also sent a text within the first few hours or our arrival to make certain we found anything and to see if we had any questions. A nice touch. I would highly recommend this home and these owners!
