4 Bedroom/2 Bath Sleeps 9. 2600 Sq Ft Mountain Chalet That Feels Like Home
About Brian Hicks
We purchased this home in early 2013 so that we could have a place that our children could grow up with and our family could create memories with friends and family to last a lifetime. We live in the Sacramento area and use this home quite often. We are happy to be able to share it with others during the times that we can't make it up.

Why Brian Hicks chose Truckee
We chose Tahoe Donner because of all the amenities and the proximity to Sacramento. The property has a 'mountain cabin' feel while still offering all of the comforts of a modern home.
What makes this Cabin unique
We wanted a home that we could get away from it all and would allow us to entertain our entire extended family for memorable family get-togethers. Our location in Tahoe Donner is on a very quiet street and yet we are minutes away from skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, golfing, biking, and swimming at both the community pools and at the private beach at Donner Lake.
Absolutely no smoking allowed.
Dogs only and they need to be kept downstairs.
4th room with 2 queens and 2 sets of bunk beds.
Max guests:9 (sleeps up to 8 adults)

Perfect family home
We had a great couple days at this wonderful home. It was perfect for two families! It has everything you need including snow toys. We will for sure be back!
Great family cabin close to Tahoe Donner
Very nice family home that is fully-equipped and close to Tahoe Donner (5min) and Northstar (15-20 min). Would stay here again.
Best Place In Tahoe-Donner
From booking to leaving, everything went great. The Hicks' place is truly a home and does not feel anything like a rental. The set-up of the home is perfect and it was so clean and inviting. All the amenities from dishes, cookware , soap, shampoo etc. were available. The two driers were great to dry out clothes after a wet day on the slopes. The hot tub was another plus after a hard day of skiing, and we also enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace and all the wood was provided.
I think this is the best place in Tahoe -Donner and am looking forward to using this home again next year.
Thank you to the Hicks for sharing their home with us!
Great house, a lot of room, good communication!
We had a nice two day stay at the house. It was our second time there, and the upgrades to the kitchen are wonderful. The kitchen is fully stocked, the hot tub is nice and big for a group, the house is spacious, and the location is convenient. The host was very communicative and accommodating.
Would recommend this to others.
Warm and Cozy Home
My family and I stayed at Brian's home during the first big storm this winter. Prior to going, Brian forewarned us about the weather and suggested that we come early in the day before the storm hit. We took his advice and went early and it was a breeze getting there. When we got there, the home looked exactly as listed. The living room and kitchen were very spacious. The kitchen had all the utensils and appliances we needed to make all of our meals. There was a loft upstairs with a closet full of board games. When we decided to venture out there were sleds in the garage and we were able to walk to a nearby hill to sled as Brian recommended. The home had everything we need and more, we could've been stranded there and would've been just fine.
We are extremely happy that you and your family had a great time together. It makes us feel good to know that there are other families enjoying time together in Tahoe Donner when we are unable to. Mother Nature has been very kind to us again this year, so I'm glad there was plenty of snow to play in. Hope you come back the next time you visit Truckee.
Gorgeous cabin for a family holiday!
Brians home is really comfortable for a family of 8 adults and two kids. The house was very clean and is really well equipped with towels, bedding, cookware and games! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it for others. Brian was also incredibly responsive to our many questions. We found the heating to be a little tricky in parts of the house (e.g. the large bunk room which is above the garage) as it was a particularly cold week but after a few days once the house heated up it was better. Thank you for all your help Brian - your home really made our family trip a happy and memorable one!
Tahoe Donner is ideally located just a few miles North of Lake Tahoe. There is also private beach club access on one of the best kept secrets, Donner Lake. The area offers activities to keep you busy year round, from tubing down the Truckee River in the summer to riding inner tubes down the groomed slopes on the golf course driving range in the winter.
