Two small families can comfortably fit in the house and will be sure to create fun family memories. There are 3 bedrooms (master suite with king, one queen and a double bunk room). There is also a comfortable fold out queen sofa bed and additional ottoman single sleeper bed. The yard is on a gentle slope perfect for sledding for the kids in the winter or just running around in the summer. The house has a new hot tub on the back patio... great in the winter and summer. There is a gas firepit in the summer you can use perfect for roasting marshmallows or just enjoying the scenery.

In the winter, it's a quick drive to the slopes...15 minutes from Sugarbowl, 20 minutes from Northstar and Squaw. In the summer, relax on the sunny deck or peaceful backyard swing or drive down the hill to Donner Lake and enjoy guest access (for a daily fee) to the private marina where you can paddleboard, sail, kayak or just relax by the lake.

About Karen Chin

We have been heading to Tahoe for years skiing in the winters. When we had our kids, we began enjoying the summers too. Now we love Tahoe every part of the year. Every time we go, it is literally a breath of fresh air from San Francisco, and it's been so fun watching our kids connect, interact and enjoy the amazing nature around them. They can be kids and jump rocks, play in the woods, swim in the lake, float down the truckee, kayak in Donner Lake, and of course, ski. After years of renting in every season and years of looking for a home to buy, we finally decided to take the leap and purchase a home in Tahoe Donner. We can't wait to make the family memories now in the same home year after year.

Karen Chin purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Karen Chin chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe Donner was our favorite place to rent because of the wonderful community and amenities. As a guest, you have access to their fitness center, pools, tennis, etc. If you want to ski, hike, bike, swim, golf, play bocce, swing on swings, shoot hoops, archery or ride a horse, you can do all of that within Tahoe Donner. Year after year, we come back and discover new activities that Tahoe Donner has to offer. They also have so many family events all year that bring families together and make it festive for everyone.

We fell in love with this house since the set up was perfect for our family of four and knew we could invite another family to join us. It was sunny and bright with plenty of sleeping room for everyone. Its open space was great for hanging out and we loved how close it was to everything. Being near the entrance of Tahoe Donner makes getting everywhere easier and super convenient. When our kids are older, they can bike to the pools and town. We also loved looking out to the trees and woods around our house. It felt very private.

Wonderful Tahoe home!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay over the holidays at this beautiful Tahoe home. Very well equipped, spacious and comfortable, the home was easily accessible to the ski resorts as well as shopping areas. We enjoyed home-cooked meals, watching movies as a family in the evenings and even hot tubbing in the snow. The beds were comfortable, and the floor plan allowed everyone to have a little space for down time. The owner provided lots of information for our stay and was accessible when needed. All in all, it was an excellent choice, and we will look forward to staying here again!

This was the perfect place to kick off our winter vacation. The hot tub is amazing, lots of forest in the back for kids and the dog, and everything that you could need available and labeled!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our one-week stay at the cabin was fabulous! The cabin has a very welcoming feel to it and has everything one can ever wish for. We cooked quite a bit over there and always found everything we needed. The hot tub outside is a definite plus! It is large and new and it is simply nice to soak up at the end of the day. The cabin sits on a quiet street, yet is close to a major road so it is easy access to get to Donner Lake or the local supermarket and restaurants. We would rent this place again in an instant. Thank you Karen (the owner) for responding to our inquiries so quickly and for allowing us to stay in your cabin. Karen is definitely on top of everything!

The property was very clean and well stocked

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the amenities provided at the cabin. It was clean, had all the supplies and kitchen items that you would need. The style of the cabin was very comfortable and modern. We had a good time staying there. The only disappointment was the condition of the spa, as it was not useable due to algae.

Owner's Response: Hi Katherine So glad you enjoyed your stay at the house! We do have a hot tub person locally maintaining the tub so I will look into it! In the future, if the tub does not look clean, please let us know and we can send someone out to make it perfect for y'all. Cheers, Karen

would absolutely stay again...

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay, the cabin is roomy yet cozy, mattresses comfy (not alway the case in rental home :-) and there is everything you may possibly need (kids were particularly excited about the Apple TV :-). The fact that we could bring our puppy too was an added bonus. Highly recommended!

We love Tahoe Donner because of all the activities available in the community. This house provides guests to access the private beach marina at Donner Lake which has a great beach for lounging, swimming, fishing for crawdads and bbqing. You can also rent paddleboards, sailboats, kayaks and other water toys or if you have a boat, you can launch your boat and waterski. During the summer, Tahoe Donner offers free concerts and live music on the fields where parents can enjoy family time with their kids and relax under the stars. The nearby mountains provide tons of access to world class skiing and hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking in the summer. We love it as our kids never run out of things to do in the outdoors. If you love golf and tennis, Tahoe Donner has its own golf course, driving range and tennis center. There is something for every age every time of the year. We love our Tahoe Donner location because of it's easy access to the pools and recreation center within the community and is only 5 minutes to downtown Truckee which is a cute town with fantastic restaurants and bars and quaint shops.
