Family Friendly Cabin On Quiet Street Walking Distance To Tahoe Donner Amenities
average rating of 5.0 based on 13 reviews

Great one level family friendly home - advertised correctly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another family with young kids. The home was very kid friendly, with toys, books, sleds, pack and play and high chair. If you have young kids, this is a great spot. It's one level and the fireplace is kid proofed. Our kids loved playing in the backyard.

Driveway was easy to access and garage was great. I would come back again. If there is anything to suggest, it would only be to add two more folding chairs that are table height so that 8 people could join at the table. The owners were very easy to communicate with. Thank you for having us stay at your home.

Great stay in the snow

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Brian and Courtney's house with our family of 5. The single floor set up was perfect for the kids as were the bunkbeds. Everything was great during our stay, which was during the middle of a huge snowstorm. Even with record snowfall, the driveway was shoveled daily allowing us to get to the ski slopes, which were only 2 miles away. We also loved the kitchen which had most spices and a full set of cookware, and the wood burning fireplace. There were also plenty of games and books for the evenings. The backyard was also open and great to play in and there were also a couple of sleds in the garage that we did not get a chance to use. This house was exceptional and exceeded our expectations. We would definitely stay here again if we travel to Tahoe.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. It was immaculate and had everything you would need in the kitchen to feel at home. The location is great for access to the Tahoe Donner activity center and skiing. The owners are very responsive and helpful. One of the best VRBO homes we have rented.

Excellent vacation cabin for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in this cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! The cabin is spacious with room to spare for our 3 kids. The added bonus of toys and games in the closest was a huge plus! The home is equipped for younger children with a Pack and Play, high chair, booster seat, and even a gate should you use the wood-burning stove. We really appreciated the nightlights in a kitchen drawer that were available for us to use. The house is about 5 minutes from the main road in Truckee and very close to all of the perks at Tahoe Donner. The house was in excellent condition! Our kids enjoyed playing on the trampoline outside and exploring the landscape. Brian was quick to communicate with me regarding questions and very helpful. Our only suggestion would be to add a lamp or two in the living room, if possible. We enjoy reading, and it was difficult due to the lighting in there. This is an excellent cabin though; you won't be disappointed staying here!

Great cabin in the perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a wonderful week at this cabin. The cabin had plenty of room for everyone and the kids loved jumping on the trampoline. You feel like you're in the middle of the forest looking out the back. We saw lots of deer and even a bunny rabbit. The nice thing is, you're couple of blocks walk to the rec center, and a short drive to town to get any supplies the you need. If I had to make a suggestion for improvement, I would recommend more comfortable mattresses for the bunk beds, but other than that, it's a great place to stay.

Great stay in Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the McCarthy cabin. It was a very clean, comfortable cabin for our two families with kids and we enjoyed being close to all the TD amenities. The kids loved the bunk room and we enjoyed the great room where we could all be together. Brian was very easy and helpful to work with. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone who is looking to stay in Tahoe Donner.
