Property description

This sunny modern cabin is located in Tahoe Donner, close to hiking, biking, skiing, climbing, Donner Lake, and only about 10 minutes from historic downtown Truckee. The cabin has a great open floor plan under vaulted ceilings with windows galore. The layout is perfect for hanging out, cooking a meal, playing games, and enjoying a fire.

On the lower floor, there is a large living and dining area with a wood burning stove, dining table, large sectional sofa, reclaimed wood coffee table, and television (connected to a Roku to be able to stream movies and TV shows from our Netflix account, no cable tv). The huge, oak slab dining table easily seats 8 people. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking and baking, with plenty of plates, bowls, cups, mugs, and utensils (and coffee-making supplies).

Also on the lower level, there are two bedrooms, one with a full bed, the other with two twin beds. Also downstairs are a full bathroom and laundry area.

Upstairs is a loft area and the master suite. The loft is a wonderful reading nook, and is also suitable for sleeping additional guests on a blow-up mattress. The master suite has a queen bed, vanity area, bathroom, closet, and dresser. Linens are provided for each bedroom and in each bathroom.

The cabin is situated on approximately half an acre with a large wooded side-yard. There is a two-car garage and covered walkway up to the front door. The dining area has a sliding glass door that leads to a deck with a barbecue and smaller table for use in snow-free months.

Guest passes to Tahoe Donner's amenities are available - these guest passes allow you to access the Trout Creek Recreation Center (with its huge hot tub, sauna, and steam room), the Tahoe Donner pools, the Beach Marina, etc. (for a small fee, which you pay to Tahoe Donner when you use the passes).

There are enough real beds to sleep 6 people, a queen-sized aerobed for 2 more people, and you are welcome to bring your own sleeping pads or air mattress to sleep 2 more people for a maximum occupancy of 10 people.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: We are a young(ish) couple who live most of the time in the Bay Area. One of us is a teacher, the other a carpenter and climbing coach. We love rock climbing, hiking, running, birdwatching, and just generally being outside. Sylvie manages this vacation rental for us.

Why Truckee, CA, USA:
We bought this house because we love Truckee. It is a fabulous town nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, that wonderful "Range of Light," and surrounded by the things we love the most - mountains, lakes, trees, birds, and rocks!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love the open floor plan and high ceilings in this house. The modern wood-burning stove provides a cozy additional source of heat. Our oak slab dining table, coffee table, and bookcase were all designed and crafted by us (well, the carpenter half of us!). Several other pieces are family heirlooms or salvage yard finds.
