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 21, 19 and 16, 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!

Perfect house in Truckee!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our parents to come visit us for two weeks and it was excellent! The owners were very responsive and wonderful to work with. The house is very well stocked and has everything you need from the kitchen to the laundry room. The central heat worked great and the pellet stove in the living room was a nice addition when we were all in the living room watching a movie. The kitchen is perfect for making big meals and the open concept lets the cook chat with everyone else at the same time, big plus. We would recommend this house purely based on how awesome the owners are and the house is equally as excellent!

Thank you so much for a great stay in your comfortable cabin. The space was just enough.

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely comfortable. The kitchen had enough of everything for me to utilize my cooking skills, and what a fun stove to use.

The bedrooms were cozy. The bunk room was the right size for 4 kids.

Thanks again for sharing your home.

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!

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.
