Cozy Tahoe Donner Cabin. Perfect For Young Families!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Perfect location on a quiet street, convenient to everything.(Sleeps 8-10)

3 bd +loft/2ba on the best street in Tahoe Donner.

1 queen bedroom, 1 kids room (twin bunk beds) for the little ones on the first floor. 1 queen bedroom upstairs with additional loft space if additional sleeping needed. Fold out sleeper sofa in the living room.

Located on an awesome street off from the main road. Though the street is a circle, the house is at the opposite end of the entrance so very few cars ever pass by. It allows for some R & R with privacy.

A gorgeous river rock fire place in the living room with more than enough wood for the winter.

Our secluded street is primarily second home owners, so everyone is in 'vacation mode' and so friendly and happy to be there. We have full-time residents across the street that are very helpful and friendly.

Tahoe Donner is a wonderful, mountain resort community with its own small downhill ski area, cross country ski center, sledding hill, small market/deli, and the Trout Creek Recreation Center. Trout Creek offers a hot tub, heated pool, fitness center, saunas, and a health spa. Tahoe Donner also features a tennis center, equestrian center, 18-hole golf course, driving range, a pizza pub and The Lodge restaurant and bar. Guests may also use a private beach and marina on Donner Lake during summer months for a nominal fee. Tahoe Donner is located northwest of central Truckee. It is 5-7 minutes drive to downtown shopping and restaurants, and 15-30 minutes to major ski resorts including Northstar at Tahoe, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl. House includes guest access cards for the Tahoe Donner amenities (there is a daily fee for guests)

About Tom

My husband and I are from the East Coast. We moved to California in 2008 from the DC area and love it here!

Especially Tahoe and the majestic beauty and activities we can enjoy all year long! Though we typically enjoy traveling to destinations we've never been to, now with our 2 year-old daughter, we like to spend our weekends exploring closer to home. We always discover new places and activities each time we go to Tahoe! Our house is perfect for toddlers. We have been going with friends and find it works well for 2-3 small families(probably only 1 large family).

Tom purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom chose Truckee

We fell in love with the nice open deck for families to enjoy the spectacular summers and the beautiful river rock fireplace to warm yourself by in the winter. There is a gorgeous 4 mile nature trail off of our street with endless hiking trails in the area. World class skiing minutes away. We even have a small downhill ski area right in the community with 2 lifts (perfect for kids or beginners like myself) . Several well-known golf courses and our own 18 hole course as part of the community, too.

This resort community has many amenities including an equestrian area, many bike rentals/trails, water sports including boat rentals, tennis courts, swimming pools, cross-country and downhill ski area. Enjoy Donner Lake next door or a 20 minute drive to Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

We have BBQ grill, inflatable kayak, sleds, kid's skis you can use if they fit. There's a hammock in the back during warmer months.

Cozy Tahoe Donner Cabin. Perfect For Young Families!
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Nice cozy home

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable cozy home. The carpet and fixtures are older but still work fine. We loved sledding and playing in the backyard. We were unable to get the fireplace to work and there is no "how to" book for house information that would have been nice. Also no checkout procedure (such as start load of laundry or set home temp to 60 etc). We love Tahoe Donner so the location was great.

El dorado hills, ca

great and easy

  • 5 of 5

The home is very nice. We loved the backyard access to hiking and sledding - with lots of sleds included! Plenty of space and a good location. Wifi was amazingly fast - my kids kept telling me it was so much better than home. The owners were very easy to work with - immediate responses and deposit refund. Word to the weekends get very crowded in Truckee - so plan ahead with dinner reservations, ski lessons, etc. Overall - highly recommend!

Perfect place for young families

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this wonderful cabin just a few days ago.

The owner was very attentive and easy to reach. He even said yes to our early check-in request (though we arrived late due to road condition) which I really appreciated.

The cabin is at the perfect location(everything is close), beautiful and well organized. Garage is big/clean enough to park two SUVs and has many recreational items including snow sled for our toddler girl.

Kitchen has most of appliances/stuffs needed and we had no problem of using them. Fireplace was a bit tricky so we didn't use it.

Beside the TV at the photos, there is another TV upstairs with Netflix. Wifi was fast and stable. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean with a lot of towels.

Besides two queen beds and a bunk bed, there are a queen size futon, a day bed, a sleeping bag and a folding mattress, 7-8 chairs are at the dining area so 8 of us spent 4 days comfortably.

I would definitely go back.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days at the cabin and really enjoyed how comfortable and cozy and clean it was. The wifi and netflix are great - we watched a lot of movies! It's fantastic that Trout Creek runs down behind the property and there's a big open area in the back to play in the snow. We made the best fort of our lives back there and there wasn't even that much snow! The layout of the house is really good and we especially liked that there is a mudroom entryway to keep all our snow gear and wet shoes out of the way. We really enjoyed our stay!

Nice and Easy

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect size home for our family of 5 and very accommodating with kids. Clean, comfortable, and the owners were really easy to contact and work with. Located on a quite street, perfect enclosed ground level porch out front that the kids could play on while we made meals. The back yard was very usable and sloped just enough that the kids made a jump for the sleds. Close enough to town and Northstar Village to get out and enjoy other activities. Fairly priced too! We will definitely be back, thanks for the great stay!

Loved this cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely cabin . Location is central. It is very close both to the snow play and various ski areas and also to truckee town (safeway and various restaurants).

Cabin is clean, warm and comfortable and feels like home. It is exactly what the photos are. It is also well stocked with basic needs. At the end of the day, having a wifi and netflix proved a winning combination for our kids and us adults. The owner is very helpful from the get go and responded quickly to all my questions. He made it possible for us to have an early check-in and we greatly appreciated that. This is our first time renting a cabin and lucky enough to have a very positive experience. We would definitely stay again in this cabin.
