Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Come enjoy a getaway at our family's cozy hillside cabin. Located on a quiet street within walking distance of Tahoe Donner's downhill ski area, our home comfortably sleeps six. We purchased and furnished the cabin in the fall of 2014, so the carpet and furnishings are still in great condition.

Relax by the gas stove in the living room while watching the HDTV, or enjoy a book while lounging in the cozy leather recliner. Your feet will stay toasty warm on the heated slate floors as you prepare your meals in our fully-stocked kitchen.

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.

Our cabin is located in the Tahoe Donner resort community. Just 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Donner is a private homeowners' association with a wide variety of facilities for its members and guests. Guests may enjoy the following amenities for a nominal fee using the guest passes provided with the home:

* Trout Creek Recreation Center (weight and cardio rooms, steam room, recreational pool, adult lap pool, and more)

* Tahoe Donner Tennis Center

* Beach Club Marina at Donner Lake

* Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area

* Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area

* Snowplay Area

* Tahoe Donner Golf Course

* Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center

NOTE: Our cabin is located on a hillside off a private road with access from two directions. The road is plowed during the winter months, but we strongly recommend 4WD, AWD, or chains for access.

Parking is limited to 2 vehicles, one inside the garage and one in the driveway. The clearance for the garage door is 6 feet, 6 inches. Vehicles are to be parked in designated parking areas only. Parking is not allowed on the access road.

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!

warm & inviting

The cabin was nicely appointed with a lot of basics available. Clean and friendly with a large living room for games and conversation. There are several decks available from the kitchen and bedrooms. Good area for walking. We have rented many homes in the Tahoe area and I would definitely recommend this home. Unfortunately, we were there for only two nights. Thank you Tina for sharing your lovely home.

Great Ski Vacation cabin

  • 4 of 5

My family on this trip included 4 adults and 2 small children. The cabin had plenty of room for us to relax after a day of skiing and snow play. You do need 4wheel drive or chains to make into the drive if it's actively snowing but we knew about that before we went and came prepared. The house is on a great sledding hill for snow play. We throughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place! We stayed here for the weekend and felt so comfortable in the cabin. It was tastefully decorated and had everything needed from kitchen supplies to games and even a wonderful book selection for all ages. We stay often in the Donner area and it is rare to find a place like this that is upgraded for a reasonable price. We would love to visit again and highly recommend this cabin.

Great spring break getaway in the snow

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 4 nights relaxing at the cabin. The house was great - quiet and restful. 3 bedrooms meant our 3 teenagers could all spread out and be comfortable. Master bedroom with ensuite bath was spacious with lots of dresser space to let us unpack. Cabin was well appointed, clean and cozy with plenty of room for family time in the living room and meals and games together in the kitchen. The kitchen had all the appliances and utensils to let us prep and cook meals.

High elevation meant lots of snow on the ground and two days of beautiful snow fall while we were there. Roads were plowed daily including the driveway all the way up to the garage door. Kids had lots of fun sledding on the hill behind/beside the cabin and we didn't have to pay/drive to a snow park. On the last two days the weather was clear and we enjoyed strolling along the street with expansive views over the valley to the south. If we had wanted to venture beyond, the Tahoe Donner ski runs were just around the corner and many other ski resorts are close by. Truckee is also close and an option for shopping and dining.

Would highly recommend this cabin and hope to visit again in warmer weather to take advantage of the beautiful decks and summertime amenities.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cabin!! The cabin had all the amenities we could think of or need. Only ten minute walk to Tahoe Donner Ski for the little ones. The entire property was neat and orderly upon our arrival. The owner provided excellent customer service with any pre-trip questions we had. We would definitely recommend the cabin, it's in a perfect location for a winter getaway.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely cabin for 3 night in Jan 2016. The place is modern and clean. The beds are cozy and the kitchen is well equiped. Minutes to Donner snow play area and a great gym with a kids club which we had access to. Bring your swim suites! The heated outdoor pool at this gym is amazing...

We have an AWD so the driveway wasn't a problem at all, even after a big snow storm. Kids really enjoyed sledding down the private road that the cabin is on. We will definitely be back!
