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, 39” HD LED TV with mini-Tivo, private deck, jacuzzi-bathtub, separate shower and walk-in closet.

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).

Perfect rental home

  • 5 of 5

The description and great reviews are very accurate. We had a large group stay for 4 nights and the home had everything we needed. It was very clean and modern. The home owner was quick to respond to any questions asked. Would definitely recommend!

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.
