This is our go-to rental in Tahoe for our family of 4. This was our third stay, this time we came with my in-laws, for a total of 6 of us. Our 2 year old and 4 year old enjoy the closet full of toys, and I appreciate that the house is so well outfitted, clean, and well maintained. Great location- 10 minutes from Downtown Truckee. Nice neighborhood. Spacious house. Dennis, the owner, is very thoughtful and accommodating. We will definitely be back.
Thanks for letting us use your home. We were very pleased with the place. Great location, all was easy and there were no issues or problems.
The layout was very pleasant and the house felt cozy and was very functional for our family of 4.
We would love to go again.
Sadly we did not have much snow but that is beyond control...
This was our second time at "Cozy Tahoe Donner Cabin" , there are no complaints everything was great. It has all the item needed to make a stay very enjoyable. Thank you for sharing with us.
We had our family of four with two little kids (3,5) and my parents stay for thanksgiving weekend. The layout was nice and open and the sleeping arrangements worked out well for the six of us. The cabin has everything a home would have, from a well supplied kitchen to toys, tvs everywhere, to cable and Internet. Dennis was very accommodating (even allowed our dog to come) and we will be back.
Without too much difficulty, we were able to get the landlord to AMEND the UNFAIR terms in the "Fill-in-the-Blank" rental contract that he proposed. FAIR WARNING: READ THE CONTRACT BEFORE YOU SIGN (details below).
This very comfortable home is located in "Tahoe Donner"--a very nice alpine development--everything up-scale. Wonderful facilities for people seeking recreational opportunities (golf, skiing, etc.). For our family reunion of 25 relatives (staying in three different houses), we rented a Tahoe Donner Association pool, able to accommodate 50 people, for 2 1/2 hours (with two lifeguards) for $150. A VERY nice pool facility. What a deal!
This one-story home is on a quiet street. Although the lots are narrow, from the comfortable, wide deck on the back of the house other homes were just glimpses through the very thick and beautiful trees. Very lovely!
As indicated in our review title, the kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped: modern appliances and almost any kitchen tool or gadget you could imagine (among the best two kitchens of some twelve VRBO rentals in our experience). Since we prepared most of our meals, this was a big plus.
The family room and master bedroom have ceiling fans. The other two bedrooms do not. For summer time, we HIGHLY recommend bringing portable fans for those two "fanless" bedrooms. (It would be very inexpensive for the landlord to install ceiling fans, but...).
ABOUT THAT CONTRACT:
It requires you to list by name all temporary tenants living there and would prohibit having other guests, even for dinner: "No other guests, visitors or persons are permitted." (Paragraph 4.) This is a big issue if your "unlisted" dinner guest is injured due to the landlord's negligence (e.g., an unsafe condition on the property). He could argue that it is your fault for having an unlisted guest.
It requires that you pay a NON-REFUNDABLE "Reservation Fee" of $300.00. What is this?
Although it requires a separate "Cleaning Fee" of $130.00, Paragraph10 also states that the "Premises will be delivered to Occupant [that's you, the renter] in a professionally cleaned condition..." "If Occupant does not return the Premises in the same condition, a(n) (additional) charge will be deducted from the security deposit." In other words, you pay twice if you don't leave it "professionally" clean.
This rather strange "boilerplate" contract is published by the California Association of Realtors and is expressly designed to favor the landlord 100%.
This cabin was absolutely lovely, and it was such a treat to be able to have our furry friend with us. Dennis was very attentive to our needs (even when there was snow sliding off the roof but I thought it was an intruder--embarrassing), and the cabin is very nicely appointed. This may sound silly, but I loved loved loved the carpet--it's so soft and plush. I definitely plan to stay here again!
