About Yiling Wang

We are a family with two young kids who live in the bay area. We have always loved Tahoe and we bought this house so that we can have the kids enjoy this area growing up. We love to ski and snowboard and also love this area for cycling.

Yiling Wang purchased this house in 2015

Why Yiling Wang chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We fell in love with this house the moment we stepped in. We loved how magnificent the views and windows are - sitting in the living room is like being in the middle of the forest. We also love to travel with friends so this was the perfect house for us to have others enjoy with us. Our kids loved the little hideaway kid area and that was their vote for their most favorite feature.

Perfect ski getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of families who has skied the same weekend together every year for the last 6 years. This year we found this house after our group downsized a bit. We are always a little nervous going into a new home, but we all instantly loved the house. It is well maintained and well labeled (yes, every switch was labeled!). The house binder of information was well organized and easy to use. As others have said, it was well stocked with appliances and kitchen supplies.

The kids went so far as to declare it's their favorite Tahoe Donner vacation home ever (and we have stayed in many)! The secret kid play area / hideaway was a favorite, and they played for hours in the snow igloo on the porch. Additionally, in the past, we've stayed at much larger houses in terms of square footage, but this one felt larger because of the layout.

The driveway does have a little slope which can be tricky with ice and a front wheel drive minivan, but no problem with chains or 4WD. The benefits of the house far outweighed the ice challenge the first day.

The owner is extremely responsive and answered all the little questions I had instantly and was always genuinely helpful. We had a great time, and are hoping to return regularly. The kids declared we must return next year even before we left. Thanks for sharing your wonderful house!

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home, with 6 teens and had a wonderful, comfortable stay. We cooked big dinners in the spacious kitchen and found the living room to be a great spot for watching TV or playing games near the fire. The house was a convenient distance from shopping & skiing (close enough to zip down by car, yet far enough to feel peacefully secluded in a beautiful neighborhood). The owner was super responsive and helpful, giving us vital heads-ups about weather conditions and traffic issues. The only "negatives" (and these are minor cons) is that the toilet in the master bathroom is noisy and announces itself intermittently around the clock, which seems like something that could be fixed (though I think we were given a heads-up about this in the pre-rental info) and the master bedroom is actually SO enormous (think Dr. Zhivago) that you'd need binoculars to watch TV from bed (a first world problem). But, all in all this place was beautiful, clean & comfortable, and I would totally recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Turns out the master bedroom toilet was actually running a leak which was why it was noisy which we have since fixed. That definitely was not expected. Sorry about the disturbance and glad you had a good stay.

Large house. Great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I take our grandchildren over the age of 5 to Tahoe Donner for a week each year. This year 9 qualified and along with 3 adults made a party of 12. This home worked very well. A large home, it allowed for breaking into groups so the kids could play in different areas, while still allowing the adults some space of their own. There are many high end amenities in the home such as heated floors in the bathrooms (would be fantastic in the winter), a Jacuzzi tub in the master bath, multiple TVs video games, a selection of movies and a large kitchen well stocked with utensils, pans, plates, glasses, etc. Highly recommend it. Can't say enough good things about it.

As a side note, the owner was exceptionally responsive when we had an issue one morning with a battery in a smoke alarm. The problem was fixed within an hour.

Awesome house for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It's beautiful modern house equipped with everything you need. It fits 3 families comfortably. There were nice furniture but not to the point where I have to worry that my kid will damage anything! The master bedroom is large with jet tube and separate stand in shower. The location is great since we can get to all of the ski slopes easily. I would definitely rent this place again!

Already wanting to book a year out!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at my fair shares of cabins but this one is my favorite 2 family option. I loved the amenities and the thought the owner has put in for their guests.

Most cabins provide a "semi" full kitchen. This one has an actual full kitchen and plenty of supplies, even a rice cooker.

I appreciate the detailed things like: new sponges in the kitchen. Nice lotion & hand lotion in the bathroom. Tooth brush holders/hair dryer provided. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash dispenser in the shower and all smelled so nice! I usually pack these things but now I know I don't need to for this cabin.

Now for the big things.

Spacious, beautiful, comfortable, Super Clean and very much kids friendly place.

The 2nd family room and the secret kids room was a big hit with the kids. They wanted to stay there forever.

We were snowed in for 2 days but the kids were happy with all the games and the adults were happy catching up on some premium movies.

Heated bathroom floors was one of my favorite things as well.

I am sure I didn't list all the things I love so I'll just say just a perfect cabin!

You can if you want build a sliding hill from the side of the house.

The only thing I wished for was a king size beds. Both bedroom had queen size.

Owner is super nice and always reachable as well.

Definitely will rent this beautiful cabin again!
