The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the second floor off a single hallway. The master bedroom offers a private deck, queen-size bed, and en suite bathroom with double sinks and a shower. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed and lovely views of the wooded hillside. The third bedroom has twin bunk beds and its own private deck. A second bathroom provides a shower and bath tub for soaking after a long day of fun. A washer and dryer are available in a closeted area at the top of the stairs.

Large windows and sliding doors throughout our home allow you to enjoy plenty of sunshine and the pine forest outside.

About Tina Lucas

Our family of five lives in El Dorado County.

Tina Lucas purchased this house in 2014

Why Tina Lucas chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We chose Tahoe Donner because of the community's numerous amenities and its proximity to Lake Tahoe and various ski resorts. We love that the door-to-door drive time from our home to the cabin is under two hours!

Very cozy

  • 4 of 5

This property is small but really clean and cozy for one (or maybe two) families. Tucked away on a quiet road but close to everything.

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

This house is spotless, nicely decorated and easy to find. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and is very thoughtfully organized for visitors. So close to the downhill ski area, it's a 1 minute drive. The snow was piled so high after this crazy season that we could only see out the upper floor windows, our son said it was like being in an igloo. Great bedrooms, comfy beds, lots of storage space in dressers. The foosball table was lots of fun as were the games and movies. Definitely the best place we've rented!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice, well equipped and convenient to Tahoe Donner ski. Our family had a great time playing in the snow around the cabin. We were there during a big snow storm that blocked us in the cabin and that shut down I-80. The owners were very flexible and understanding. Overall, we had a great time.

Well kept, full equpped charmer and responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Tahoe house. For winter dwellers in this most snowy of winters, access is a bit challenging. But most of Truckee was struggling and without power, and we had a great cozy house, walking distance to T-D Ski resort and 15 minutes drive to Sugar Bowl.

Immaculate interior outweighs sub-par exterior

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do justice to this place; it's much nicer and roomier than they convey. It was extremely clean, well maintained, and fully stocked. The central heat keeps all the rooms toasty, and the beds were comfortable enough. We had no trouble with the road in our 4WD SUV.

The only problems were outside the cabin, and were compounded by the feet upon feet of snow that has fallen this year, so not really the owner's fault. There isn't an entry from the garage to the cabin, so you have to use the walkway around the front, which was iced over and had been turned into a narrow tunnel thanks to the 10+ foot snow berm adjacent to it. Navigating the walkway would have been difficult for people without sure footing, though for point of reference, our 4-year old handled it just fine. The amount of snow, combined with the hillside terrain, made it difficult to play outside the cabin, though with a lighter base of snow, it would have been manageable. It was certainly great sledding, if you could navigate the hill.

All that said, we loved our stay, and will definitely be seeking this place for future visits!
