Beautiful and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

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!

Lovliest of White Christmases at the Wildhorn Cabin !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (including 2 grandparents) had an absolutely lovely stay. The cabin was warm and cozy and perfect for the six of us. We easily could have had another 2 to 4 people stay with us and it still would have been quite comfortable. There are plenty of cozy, comfortable beds and the fact that there are two king-sized beds sold me on this property. Upscale kitchen appliances, bedding, towels, and charming home decor. We all enjoyed the extra blankets for cuddling up on the cozy couches and recliners. Patricia (the owner) was always prompt with her responses to any questions I had prior to our visit. She has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We were lucky enough to have snow for our entire stay, so it made for a beautiful postcard setting for the holidays. A short drive to downtown Truckee (maybe 5-7 mins. without snow) and close to Hwy 80 for a visit to North Star resort. The kids (ages 14 and 19) loved it and were already talking about who to bring with them for summer!

We definitely want to come back

  • 5 of 5

We have 4 adults and 3 kids in the party and stayed at the cabin for the Thanksgiving weekend. For our party size, this cabin is very spacious and yet cozy at the same time. The owner took a great care of the house--it's very clean with upscale furnishing/appliances, and the kitchen is very well stocked. The owner also left very easy to follow instructions for everything that we can possibly need during the stay, and is very responsive to our inquiries. The house has a nice collection of DVD (for both adults and kids) and games/books (the bag of wood blocks and the animal card games are the favorites for our kids). The great room layout allows the adults to prepare meals while still being able to keep an eye out on the kids. The backyard leads to a beautiful trail which is perfect for snow play. The cabin is very beautiful with lots of decorative details. We all had a great time staying at this cabin, and definitely would like to stay here again on our next trip to Tahoe.

This is a beautiful house. It is spacious, recently remodeled, and has wonderfully high ceilings and large, tall windows in the living area that bring in a lot of natural light. The windows look into lovely woods, making the house feel private, but not enclosed. Very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. The owners are very nice people that genuinely want you to have a good time and promptly respond to questions you may have. There is easy access to lots of outdoor activities. Great place - I would recommend it!!

Truely Perfect Mountain Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year coming back to this cabin. Love everything about it, clean, spacious and beautiful. Feel like home. The location is great. I can see the kids playing in the backyard from the kitchen window while I am preparing dinner. Kids had so much fun sleeping in the bunk beds and loft area. Most of all, the owner responds promptly every time. Will definitely come back!!
