About Cindy

This has been our family cabin for ten years. My children have grown up skiing in the winter and participating in water sports in the summer. The cabin fits two to three families comfortably. Please treat it as you would your own home.

Cindy purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Cindy chose

It is comfortable, easily accessible and you and your family will find it easy to relax.

What makes this cabin unique

We only clear out expired items from the kitchen, therefore you do not need to bring basic kitchen items. There are plenty of towels, sheets and necessities to allow you to enjoy yourself. Sleds in the garage for the winter months and bikes for the summer. Have a great time!

Beautiful cabin, helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over President's Day weekend, there were 17 of us total. This one of the nicest cabins we've ever rented through VRBO. Everything - appliances, kitchen utensils - was clean, in good condition and of good quality, and all of the rooms had comfortable beds and bedding. We put all of the kids on the first floor and they had a blast. They also loved the backyard - it was a huge space, and great for sledding, building snow forts, and having snowball fights. The owner was super responsive and very easy to work with. I agree with some of the other comments, we had a little trouble getting up the driveway because of the record amount of snowfall, but we all eventually were able to drive up and park.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this place for a long President's day weekend. We went with a total of 5 families with young kids and it fit us all really well. We definitely had enough space. The owner was great once we signed up. She was very helpful and easy to communicate with via phone, email and text. The house itself is beautiful and well-furnished. We're used to staying at cabins where the beds are old, lumpy and creaky. Not so at this place. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, cooking ware... The location can't be beat. While we were there various of us went to Boreal, Squaw, Tahoe Donner, Donnier Ski Ranch. We were also even able to make a sledding run right next to the house for the little little kids. All in all a great trip. We'll definitely stay here again!

Couldn't Have Picked A Better Place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic rental! My family and I booked this cabin for a Christmas. There were 12 of us and we had plenty of room. The downstairs basement was set up with multiple beds. It was perfect for all the kids. Upstairs had bedrooms for all the adults. It's in a great location very near to skiing and Donner Lake. I will be booking this place again and again.

Multiple family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here many times in both the winter and summer with my family and all my siblings and their families. It really has everything you could possible need for a family reunion, large family or large group with 4 or so families. The house is near the Northwoods clubhouse and guest passes are included so in the summer you can go to the pool, the private beach, play bingo, cornhole, horseshoes or play in the creek. In the winter, you can use the hot tub, grab dinner or go tubing or sledding at Snowplay. The location is also fantastic for skiing/snowboarding as you are 20 minutes from Squaw, Northstar, Alpine and Sugarbowl. If you have young kids, Tahoe Donner Ski Area is 5 minutes away and Truckee is right down the hill for shopping and meals.

The kitchen has everything you need for big dinners and the layout of the house allows for many people but is also very cozy with a fireplace and games and puzzles for everyone. One of the best things for a large group is that downstairs from the main room is a kids retreat with 8-10 beds for a kids/teenager sleepover.

The owner is very responsive for booking the house and while we were there we had a small problem with the internet and the owner got back to us immediately with a solution.

I cannot say enough to recommend this house!

Nice stay but beware of the driveway

  • 4 of 5

We, along with 4 other families, were able to stay there over Thanksgiving. The property was very roomy. The basement was perfect for kids sleepover. But if you want privacy, 4 families is recommended. The only major hiccup for us is the night we arrived, snow/ice covered the driveway. Though it was 'cleaned' up by service people, the inclined driveway proved to be too much for our non 4 wheel drive cars. We literally spent couple hours chaining up and helping each other up the driveway since parking on the street was prohibited.

Other than that, the owner (or whoever she appointed) was prompt to respond when we ran into electric outlet issue.

The property is located conveniently by Taho Donner but it was not open while we were there. But it's also not too far from Boreal.

Overall, it was a good stay for us despite some challenges.

Owner's Response: We have a professional snow removal service, which plows the driveway daily and on days with a lot of heavy snow fall, they plow twice a day. Unfortunately, when the weather is very bad and freezing black ice can form on any driveway. We have never had a problem with our cars before on the driveway, though I am sorry that you had a problem. In fact, I noticed you left some chains in the garage. Would you like them mailed back to you? I'm glad you enjoyed the stay otherwise.
