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.

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.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four stayed in this cabin for a long weekend. The children ranged in age from 5 to 15.

The cabin is beautiful and every detail has been covered. It has all the "little things" that one wants at home but usually does not have in a rental house (e.g., shoe benches by each door, games for the family to play, even plate covers for the microwave!). What makes it a 5+ star is that it is clear that it used by the owners in that it has all the little things one wants at a vacation home while at the same time it is immaculate (often I find there is a tradeoff between the two).

Great house, perfect for snow trip to Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this house and enjoyed the entire time. The house is very well maintained and the owner is meticulous about caring for it as well as identifying features to guests. The house is only minutes from Tahoe Donner resort so it's very convenient. We would definitely consider returning in the future.

A Gem of a Rental for Skiers

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mark's place over New Years (2016) for the second year in a row for cross-country skiing. The house is conveniently located near Tahoe-Donner, so it's easy to go skiing, and easy to return to after a day of skiing. It's so nice to get home so quickly for nice drink after being in the cold.

Others have mentioned how nicely-appointed the house is. I won't repeat what others have said, except to reiterate how nice it is inside.

The garage fits 2 cars comfortably, which is very nice in the winter.

Mark graciously returned an item we accidentally left behind via UPS. Thank you, Mark.

The Loveliest and Perfect Ski Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated and well-organized home delighted us again, this second time we rented Mark's cabin. Every detail of living is anticipated; everything you might need is there. From perfect TV and sound system for football and movies to high-speed, dependable WIFI, this gracious home provides the perfect home base for ski trips. Over the years, we've rented a lot of different places and this is one of the nicest -- if not THE nicest -- cabin we've enjoyed. PLUS, the owner is attentive, helpful, and gracious. We imposed greatly on him on our last trip, and patiently went the extra mile for us. What a great host he is.
