About the property

Light And Modern 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cabin In Tahoe Donner

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.

Truckee Registration Certificate Number 752.

About Sylvie (manager) or Lauren (owner)

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.

Sylvie (manager) or Lauren (owner) purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Sylvie (manager) or Lauren (owner) chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

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!

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Perfect for our family of five

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time in Tahoe Donner area. We skied five days at squaw valley alpine and one day at Tahoe Donner Nordic. The home we rented was cozy, comfortable and perfectly adequate for our family of five. it has a nice master bedroom with its own shower and two bedrooms below one with a queen size bed and another two singles. The kitchen open up into a large family room. The only thing is that wood for the woodstove has to be brought in which is quite expensive at the local supermarket about $18 for 1or2 nights. It was, however, a perfect place for our family. Thank you.

Classy location!

  • 5 of 5

Quality inside and out! Nice neighborhood. Not a long drive off the hwy. Ultra comfortable living room, loft sitting area, and 4 beds. Kitchen a joy to cook in. Engaging decor with a mix of modern and rustic woodwork. The wood table brings the outdoors in. Enjoyable lighting and bathrooms, and porch too. We hiked to the abandoned Union Pacific Railroad tunnels and saw the native american hieroglyphics on the same trail above Donner Lake. Friendly communication the whole time. Deposit returned immediately after our trip. Will return!

Cozy, clean, affordable and conveniently located house

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at this house. The booking process was simple and straightforward. We were there for a very short stay, but the house met all of our needs. The place is cozy, clean and well maintained. Its also in a great location - just minutes from Tahoe Donner.

Not bad for the money

  • 3 of 5

Location is good. It worked out overall for my family and friends to stay. It is essentially two bedroom with a loft as the master room is open for the noise in the loft. I think the only thing that can help the experience immediately is if the floor was re-done, or changed to hardwood. Thin industrial carpet felt not very clean. But the rep was very helpful and beds were comfortable. Oh and the beds have comforters! A big plus as I hate the blankets and bed cover - like cheap motels, in some properties.
