About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

This newer, luxurious vacation retreat is tucked away from the street and backs to a very private forest-like setting in the lower section of Tahoe Donner. There are great views of the tall pine trees from each of the three decks. An abundance of large windows throughout the cabin offers plenty of natural lighting.

The main level has a large, open great room with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and stone gas fireplace. Comfortable sofa & chairs are provided for you to enjoy the 60” HD LED TV with cable service, Netflix, Tivo & Blue-ray player all equipped with a surround sound speaker system to enjoy your favorite movies. WiFi is accessible throughout the cabin.

The spacious gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops and an island with a prep sink. The large dining table has seating for eight and three bar stools at the island.

The large master bedroom is located on the main level with a Cal-king size bed, new 39” HD LED TV with mini-Tivo, private deck, jacuzzi-bathtub, separate shower and walk-in closet.

The lower level has three bedrooms and a full bathroom. Bedroom #2 has a Cal-king size bed; Bedroom #3 has a twin bed and bunk bed (twin on top & full on bottom); Bedroom #4 has a bunk bed (twin on top & full on bottom) with a 32“ flat screen TV with Blue-ray player and an assortment of toys and games for kids. A booster chair and pack‘n play are also available.

A washer and dryer are provided on the lower level with laundry soap. All basic soaps are included.

Guest passes are available for a nominal fee per person to the nearby Tahoe Donner Recreation Center which offers a family swimming pool, year-round lap pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, 11 tennis courts and fitness center with daily classes.

For winter guests, Northwoods Blvd. is one of the first streets to get snowplowed. We are a short distance to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Boreal Ridge and Royal Gorge (X-country, & snowshoeing).

For late spring, summer and early fall guests, Tahoe Donner offers golfing, swimming, hiking, mountain-biking, kayaking, fishing, rock climbing and horseback riding. Donner Lake and Donner State Park are a few minutes away and beautiful Lake Tahoe is nearby.
