About Ruth Cawood

Our family and friends have enjoyed many fun and relaxing times in the house. We have many happy memories of times spent together in winter or summer the house delivers acceptable opportunities to exercise, relax and enjoy the mountains. I hope you enjoy your visit, and create your own great memories.

Ruth Cawood purchased this house in 1999

Why Ruth Cawood chose Truckee

We liked the great room, with a sun filled wall of windows with views for miles and the wonderful woodwork throughout the house. The layout of the house allows people to be together if they wish, but find space to relax alone if they prefer. The downstairs rooms allow kids to have their fun space, while adults can socialize upstairs. In summer or winter the location provides so many outdoor opportunities to cycle, fish, ski, tennis, play in the snow or just relax with a good read!

What makes this house unique

The Tahoe Donner offers easy access to the world class ski resorts or Northstar or Squaw Valley. Mountain biking through the Euer Valley, trout fishing in the Truckee River and hiking the Mount Judah trail. All of these activities as the house delivers year round opportunity to enjoy the Sierra Nevada mountains. Our house is perfect offering in size and comfort to relax or play - however you decide how to spend your time in our home away from home!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at this warm, comfortable, and family-friendly home. Ruth was very helpful and our stay was restful and fun! We highly recommend this home for a great get-a-way. It is close to Donner Lake and North Lake Tahoe. We stayed from Sept. 2-5, 2017.

Excellent summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great getaway at Tahoe area, rafting, hiking, horseback riding. The house is very well equipped and comfortable to fit 11 of us, including 5 kids that love the bunk bed. The owner is extremely helpful and readily available to talk on the phone.

Wonderful Snow Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this cabin with our friends. Our kids enjoyed the game room and the adults loved the well-stocked kitchen. We shared delicious meals and great company together. The amount of snow this year was incredible! The home was a lot nicer than the pictures. We look forward to returning.

Wonderful home in a fantastic spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family with a total of 7 small children stayed in this home for almost a week in the peak of winter. Our access to downtown Truckee, Northstar for skiing, and the highway was perfect. Loved the home and the owners are accessible and helpful.
