Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Hello! Just got back yesterday from 3 nights in this cabin. We had a great experience! The private hot tub was fantastic, grill was easy to use and the cabin was clean and really well stocked. Interacting with the owner was great and the location was close enough to civilization but far enough that we still felt we were in nature. Would/will probably stay again :)

Nice spacious place with hot tub

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to go "visit the snow" with our toddler. It was more space than we needed: we could have easily had 4-5 people join us and still had breathing space. The place was clean, except the cleaners had missed a few trays of bacon grease that the prior renters had left inside the oven. Yuck! There is a game closet, which was a mess, but a treasure trove to my five year old who explored the contents and delighted in the books and games for all ages. The hot tub was great to have on-site and it's very chlorinated (good for cleanliness, bad if you have asthma). The cover is breaking down and it's very difficult to take it on and off without having the foam inside break apart, but if you're careful, it's ok. The location is close to Donner (duh) and the Truckee Safeway. Thanks to the tons of snow we were able to just play around the front and side of the house. The pantry is exceptionally well stocked for a rental house. The ice maker works, another rare thing in this kind of rental. I'd definitely recommend this place and I'd stay here again on a future trip. Oh and we didn't use the wood stove and the place was appropriately warm the whole time. So whatever automated thermostat they have going works great.

Wonderful cabin, full amenities, very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We arrived just as the snow began. Over the next two days, we would get almost 3 feet of snow. The owner called because the could see that the driveway was covered, but he instructed me how to turn on the driveway heaters -- very handy! Almost all of his neighbors were shoveling furiously to clear the driveway, while some shoveling was unavoidable, we had it easy by comparison. This made leaving easy, but delayed because 1-80 was shutdown much of the day we left. The cabin itself was clean, well stocked with pots and pans, lots of towels and toilet paper. We enjoyed our time there immensely. Thankfully there were some games because we couldn't leave the house.

I would definitely book this space again next year, if we come up.

And Snow You Shall Have...

  • 5 of 5

My group arrived the weekend after record snow storms. If you're from California you know that it's been a few years since Tahoe had a grand snow season. We improvised as necessary, as in the case where the exterior trash compartment was buried in 10ft of snow (just leave the trash in the garage and tell the owner), and the driveway needed a some manual shoveling love, but you're going to Tahoe (Truckee) in the dead of winter, don't expect to be overtly lazy. The hot tub is still in full cycle during the winter which is awesome. The house comes equipped with a Nest thermostat, but if you're savvy with wood stoves you'll have no problem getting this cabin toasty.

Kitchen is loaded with pots/pans/utensils/dishes/etc and towels are plentiful.

Great time in Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time in Truckee. This house is as described. Very clean, well appointed and the kitchen had all the items of our own home. The deck has nice views - one evening 2 large bucks stopped in front of the house to graze. HVAC was easy to use and we were comfortable. The Master bedroom is wonderful with views of the stars at night through the huge A frame window and skylight. The 2 passes to Donner's facilities were a bonus. We used the tennis facility and the Adventure Center.

The owner was very responsive to inquiries.
