About Laura & Mike Bailey

Truckee and the North Lake Tahoe area have been a favorite destination of ours since we were both kids. After getting a good start on raising our kids, ages 19, 17 and 14, we decided it was time to fulfill our dream of having a place to make lasting memories. We want our kids to enjoy the area as much as we do, and we wanted them to enjoy spending time with the folks, even though we are not cool anymore!! We love to ski/snowboard/snowshoe during the winter. The summer has so many activities, there is never a dull moment--even when the afternoon is all about reading on the deck. We enjoy hiking, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, biking, paddleboarding, golfing, tennis, and all the activities Tahoe Donner Association provides. BBQing on the deck is mom's favorite, but visiting one of the many restaurants is dad's favorite!

Laura & Mike Bailey purchased this cabin in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fantastic summer weekend we had! We managed to explore Donner Lake and the Truckee River, and have a beautiful mountain hike to another cool lake. It was so nice at the end of our adventurous days to come back (to the cabin) with all the comforts of home, and relax. Loved having coffee and reading on the deck- appreciated having games to play- so much fun all around! You've made a great mountain getaway!

Great snow cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the open floor plan in the front rooms. We were there to be together and it always felt that way, even when in the kitchen. Nice appliances in the kitchen along with all dishes/utensils needed. Although on the main road, the house is set back and with the garage in front of the house, it doesn't feel like you are on the main road. The best yard for making sledding runs!! The kids loved all the bears in the house.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed our home! We often make sled runs right at the side of our house. This year especially with all the snow!

Lovely mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and another couple stayed here in February. We had ample room. The cabin has updated appliances and comfy beds. My children played out in the snow and built a sled run as the cabin backs up to a hill. The pellet stove kept us warm and cozy. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks!

winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Tahoe Donner, very close to the ski area. The house is very clean and nicely furnished. The bear theme was fun. We plan to return again and again.

superb retreat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Laura and Mike's home one snowy winter weekend and it was an ideal getaway! The house was equipped with more than we anticipated and was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked with everything one might need for a weekend away. Mike and Laura gave us all sorts of information to help us plan our trip and were incredibly helpful with suggestions for activities. The Tahoe Donner community provides ample options for outdoor fun (skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, etc.) all within just a few miles! We had one small hiccup when the heater failed but Mike was accessible and talked us through getting the pellet stove going to heat the cabin - this is the absolute only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5. I'd be thrilled to have the chance to stay there again and would have no hesitation to recommend their place.

comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home. my bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. home had everything we needed. It was really nice sitting out on the deck in the morning and evening. We loved the single level layout. We left ice cream and ground coffee in the freezer

for others to enjoy.
