Overview

About the property

Great for families with a loft/TV for kids and living room for adults!

After a day on the lake, hiking nearby trails, or using the amenities like pools, golf, gym or tennis, you will quickly arrive at our "mountain chic" cabin located in the lowest part of Tahoe Donner meaning less traffic and easier driving. You can enjoy the new bar-b-que, enough to grill 8 steaks and our outdoor gas fire pit with log benches to roast marshmallows or have a glass of wine. Or, cook a warm meal in our modern, fully stocked kitchen with spices, pots, and quality dishware.

Our location is on a quiet street with easy access from the main road, Northwoods Boulevard and only 5 stairs to the front door. A beautiful summer walking trail that takes you to the town of Truckee in just 30 minutes through the forest is located right across the street as well.

You will be tempted to create great meals in the chef's kitchen using the new convection oven, microwave, granite counters and double fridge. We provide plenty of dishes, mugs, wine glasses, as well as a coffee maker, 4 slice toaster, waffle maker, hand mixer, blender, mini fondue pot and crock pot. Pots, roasters and cookie sheets as well. Condiments, napkins and paper towels are available for your use. Bathrooms are supplied with plenty of bath and hand towels, toilet paper and soaps.

You are welcome to use our stock of games for all ages, or cuddle up on the couch or loft and watch TV as we have Premium Cable and also Apple TV to stream your Netflix or Hulu. Don't forget to use the surround-sound as well!

Bryan or Heidi Brahms purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Bryan or Heidi Brahms chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Our cabin is conveniently located at the entrance of Tahoe Donner with easy access in or out during the winter months, therefore avoiding much traffic or saving on the Uber ride home. Located in the lower area of Tahoe Donner, it allows for easy and quick access to the slopes, market or town. To Northstar and Squaw ski resorts it is only 20 minutes. In winter, you are welcome to use our snowshoes to hike on the trail across from the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We provide guest passes for up to 8 to use the Tahoe Donner Amenities at a reduced rate of $8 per person for the whole day. www.tahoedonner.com

Great Tahoe Donner Home

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Heidi and Bryan's home. The home was comfortably furnished and the kitchen was very well stocked w/ all the items we needed. The day we arrived, it was sunny and warm, where we were able to enjoy chilled wine and beers on the deck after a day of spring skiing. The next day, it was freezing and the rain turned to snow by the afternoon, which kept us in the house with a roaring fire and pulling out games and cards to entertain ourselves. There were so many sleeping arrangement options with the 3 bedrooms and the loft (w/ 2 futon couch/beds) and all the beds were very comfy w/ plush bedding. If you have kids, the open area in the backyard made for a fun place to try to make a snowman, the loft has a separate TV, and there were quite a few games to choose from in the loft area. We definitely plan to keep this vrbo listing on our list for future stays!

Cozy and Warm!

  • 5 of 5

Heidi did a great job accommodating us for the weekend! The space was very clean and tidy. She had enough space to accommodate our party of ten. The cabin was well stocked with spices, utensils, pots, and pans. There were a lot of games and movies as well. There was also enough hot water to provide for our entire party. We had a great time and look forward to working with Heidi again.

The property was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The owners Heidi and Brian were great! I had some issues not receiving the the check in instructions, so when I had to call them and ask them a few questions they helped me and new exactly what I needed to do. Brian took the time to FaceTime me to figure out an issue I had in the upstairs bathroom. We had an awesome time and would definitely rent from them again! Thank you Brian and Heidi for renting my family your cabin!

All Around Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent cabin and fantastic amenities. Simply perfect for a family getaway to the snow. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every moment. House has good open layout which creates the perfect back drop for family time, board games and cozying down to watch a movie. Beautiful and well stocked kitchen, views of snowy forest from every window, amazing wood stove for a crackling fire after a day on the slopes. House is in a great location, easy hwy access and literally minutes away from all the activities Tahoe Donner offers. My husband appreciated the visitor passes and used the gym each day. We were so close to TD downhill ski slopes which gave our 3 year old the opportunity for the best first ski lesson experience ever! Heidi was the most wonderful owner to work with and she truly did everything she could to make our trip phenomenal!!! We'll be back:)

Great Cabin with great outdoor seating

  • 5 of 5

We were 9 friends who stayed there for the Labor Day weekend. The cabin was neat and clean, we were welcomed with chips and wine. Lots of kitchenware, clean towels and beds. Great TV and sound system, as the other cabins are a bit far from the cabin you can step up the volume with no complaints. Best outdoor seating with fire place included.

We liked every bit of the cabin and the amenities given by Bryan and Heidi. We dint even get a chance to call to complain if something is not working(which is a positive sign). Only thing I would suggest is to have some blinds for the windows above the patio as the sun rays directly fall on the TV and half of the TV is not visible because of it. The cabin is very near to Safeway, which helps.

PS: Better than what you see in the pictures.

Owner's Response: We purchased a blind today and you are right-tv has less glare. We appreciate the suggestion and are glad that you all enjoyed your time!
