About the House
This is our cabin in the woods and general escape from the daily grind. The house backs onto a greenbelt and provides secluded views into the forest. Located in Tahoe Donner, there is easy access to skiing, boating down at Donner Lake, hiking the nearby trails and the downtown life of Truckee.
There are three bedrooms that easily sleep 6, plus a fold out couch in a bonus room that adds room for 2 more.
HDTV with Roku
Internet access and desk
Back deck with BBQ and views into the greenbelt
In addition, there are the many perks of Tahoe Donner including:
Use of the facilities at Trout Creek, including gym and pool
Award-winning golf course
Downhill and cross country skiing
Access to the Marina at Donner Lake
We pay for the full access fee and leave guest passes for your use.
I think we're typical owners - we love skiing in the winter, hiking and biking in the summer and just taking it easy on the back deck or down by Donner Lake.
Scott purchased this house in 2013
We loved the views into the woods behind the house and the general peace and quiet.
My family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed here for a month this summer and had a fabulous time - this was an easy home to relax in! The Tahoe Donner location was perfect - We explored the nearby TD trails and the Northwoods playground, pool and clubhouse are a 3-minute drive and then we were only about 7 minutes from some of the Truckee things we needed to get to. Even with that convenience, the neighborhood is quiet; leading to daily walks, hikes and jogs and deer sightings as they regularly meandered through the yard. The living room has comfortable furniture and connects to the kitchen making a big L shape and this made hanging out and playing after a day of outdoor activities really enjoyable and easy. Our kids also adored playing in the basement, loved this giant bean-bag and took advantage of an assortment of games in the cabinet. The owner, Scott, answered any question we had with minutes or an hour or two of e-mailing and was organized and efficient with all our transactions and the property felt very accurately portrayed from the VRBO site. We had an awesome summer in this house!
I stayed at this house during summer 2016. Location is excellent, and house has plenty of space, even for big families or groups. It is clean and well organized. Perfect wifi and network etc. Overall A+ for sure.
A great place for a summer retreat. The workspace and wifi connection are excellent, so you can still be connected if you so choose. It's very quiet, has lots of room, and is clean, well-stocked, and well-maintained. Lots of things to do in the area. The owner is friendly and responsive. Pet friendly.
We had a great late summer weekend staying in this spacious and well laid out cabin. With large windows front and back, the rooms are light and airy. The kitchen is well-equipped and easy to work in (we like to cook on vacation). The owner was super-responsive in responding to emails and very flexible. We are excited to be booking our next visit!
We had a great time staying here. Owner was easy to work w/ and available to answer questions, fix problems, etc. We had 3 adults, one 9 y/o and a small dog ~ there was plenty of space. We took lots of walks along the paths, visited Donner Lake a few times, went on a trail ride at the equestrian center, went to Prosser Lake and Independence Lake. Even met the local chiropractor (Dr Dave is great!) b/c my back went out. Thanks so much!
A great stay in this clean, quiet, and comfortable cabin. We enjoyed wine on the deck and direct access to the gently sloping trail through the whispering redwoods. The owner communicated with speedy responses to questions. We'll be back!
Tahoe Donner has extensive hiking trails around the perimeter (walking distance from the house), up to Donner Ridge (from Glacier Way parking lot), down into the Euer Valley (from the end of Alder Creek Rd), and a very nice loop along Trout Creek that starts across the street from the Northwoods Rec Center.
Commemorative Emigrant Trail runs along Alder Creek (accessed from Schussing Way and Alder Creek Road, just north of Tahoe Donner). Cross Alder Creek Road and follow the trail toward the Donner Picnic Area and Prosser Reservoir east of Hwy 89. Part way along, turn left and go up some banked S-turns built for mountain biking for nice views to the NE.“Dog Beach” is on Donner Lake, accessed through Donner Memorial State Park, next to the Tahoe Donner Beach Marina (tho no dogs are allowed in the marina), on Donner Pass Road.A biking trail along the Truckee River is found from the very end of East River Street (cross the pedestrian bridge) or from the Truckee Regional Park on Brockway (at the E end of town, turn right on Bridge Street, cross the river where it becomes Brockway, and the park is on the left.) Work your way down to the lowest elevation parking lot, where a paved trail begins toward the east, the Legacy Bike Trail.
From the Legacy Trail, shortly after a pedestrian bridge back to town, watch for a foot-path down to the river on your left. This path parallels the river for several miles, and is a safe trail for dogs, far from bikes and cars, and the river moves relatively gently (in the late summer at least).
A large tract around Martis Creek is great for dogs, hiking, and biking. From Downtown: I-80 east past downtown Truckee, take the exit for SR 267, turn right, S, toward Northstar. After the airport, watch for “Wildlife viewing area” sign and turn right into the parking area.
A wonderful dog-friendly trail goes from the Alpine Meadows Road up to the Pacific Crest Trail and several small lakes, between Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski areas.
