Great place

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage, fit our two families with 5 small kids comfortably. Clean, responsive owners, gives you that feel of a rustic mountain cottage but with all the amenities you need.

Wonderful snowy week at Wildhorn Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Wildhorn Cabin. So much snow!! Would love to go back in the summer and see what it's like without the snow. We were able to make a fantastic sledding path down the side of the house. The house is lovely. Very nicely and tastefully remodeled. Well equipped with everything you'd need for a week's stay. We did a lot of cooking in the house. The beds are very comfortable and plenty of closet space etc. Also a treat to have such a large garage to park the cars and store our ski gear, enabling the snow plow to keep the driveway clear. We made use of the passes to the pool/club, which was very convenient - especially on the 2 days when we didn't ski. We hope to stay there again soon!

Beautiful and comfortable house

Patricia was very easy to contact to arrange our stay. The house was beautiful, the kitchen well stocked and bedding very comfortable. We definitely recommend this house if you are in the Tahoe Donner area.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of 4 (kids 7 and 9) and came up with another family with kids of the same age for a ski weekend. The house was perfect. Great layout with enough space for the kids and adults to move around and sleep comfortably, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and linens, sleds and shovels in the garage. Patricia was easy to communicate with and provided clear rental instructions. Wish it were available for our next trip later this month!
