3 BR Bright and Cozy Cabin *hot tub, pets considered, Close To Everythin
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 Truckee
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.

Fun escape into the woods
This 3 bedroom was great for our family of two adults and two kids. Easily could have fit another family of 2 adults and 2 kids, which would have made the price more economical. Setting is terrific for nearby hiking and plenty of pool options at the near by rec centers.
Host Karen was easy to communicate with. Required a separate rental contract prior to booking.
Great Tahoe Donner Getaway
We had a wonderful time. Host was easy to communicate with and the cabin was as described / listed.
Great house in a great location!
The house was just what we needed, and comfortably slept our entire group. The kitchen was well equipped and made cooking for a large group easy. Karen was prompt with all communication and well receptive to all requests. Added bonus for the hot tub!
Great weekend winter wonderland
Well stocked, kid friendly(although bring your own safety gate for stairs) and pet friendly. Convenient location to Xcountry ski, downhill ski and dinner in truckee.
We've been coming to Karen's house for our annual ski retreat for 3 years in row. The house is centrally located and easy to get to town and ski resorts. (Squaw and Alpine).
It's clean, cozy and charming. Karen is great host, easy to communicate and quick to respond to any of my questions.
We had to cut our stay short due to the bad weather, but we'd love to come back next year. Thank you!
Beautiful house with everything you need
We had 2 families of 4 and this house was perfect. Everything was in great condition and we especially loved the massive king bed in the master bedroom. Kids loved the basketball game and we all enjoyed the hot tub. Only precaution is if you don’t have a 4 wheel drive in the winter be sure to have chains handy if you are parked in the driveway. It is sloped and shaded so gets icy quickly. Karen is a super responsive and flexible hostess!
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.
