About Alanna Schroeder

We purchased this second home in 2009 for our family to use and enjoy. We live in the Bay Area and love to spend our weekends in Tahoe Donner with our toddler and black lab. Since we are only located three hours from Lake Tahoe we like to spend our weekends decompressing in our mountain retreat while leaving all of our cares behind! While in Tahoe we spend most of our time hiking, biking, canoeing and cooking while our daughter likes to spend time at the Kids Zone and our dog like to chase his tennis ball!

Alanna Schroeder purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Alanna Schroeder chose Tahoe Donner

We fell in love with this property because of its central location and all of the amenities that the Tahoe Donner Community has to offer. We spend most of our time out hiking with our daughter and our dog Porter. During the summer we love heading out to DL Bliss State Park to spend time at the beach with our toddler and in the winter we bundle up and head to the Tahoe Donner Cross Country ski area for an afternoon of cross country skiing.

What makes this cabin unique

We purchased this property because because it offered the cozy cabin feel that we were looking for in a resort community within close proximity to restaurants, ski resorts and outdoor recreation. The property faces north so the living room and kitchen are filled with natural sunlight during the day and this exposure also helps to melt the snow on the driveway during the winter. We purchased this house unfurnished so all of the furnishing are new and in great condition. We love spending time in Tahoe and the property is big enough for our family to enjoy on our own or with a second family if we feel like entertaining. We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Great cabin in a great area

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 year old son, and chocolate lab had a great time. The cabin was very modern, cozy and comfortable with space for even more folks and it was great to be able to bring the pup too. The area behind the houses was vast enough to make a great kids adventure without having to go anywhere. Downtown Truckee has fun places to eat...and my son loved train watching in the mornings. Donner lake is also very near not to mention Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe a short drive away. We will definitely going back when we get the chance.

Tahoe home we will keep coming back to.

  • 5 of 5

My family and my friend's family (4 adults, 2 kids and 1 small dog) spent the Christmas holidays here. What a lovely house! Just perfect for the two families who drove all day to get here. What should have been 4 hr drive turned into 6+ hr due to rain/snow. We were exhausted when we finally arrived but seeing this house totally cheered us up. We felt like "we came back home"! Instantly we were ready to have some fun in the snow. Comfortable, warm, spacious home with a very nice kitchen (we cooked all the time and this kitchen had everything). Spacious backyard where kids and dogs could play. Convenient location to Hwy 80, ski and downtown Tahoe Donner. It was simply delightful to work with Alanna. Every process was taken care of clearly and efficiently. We'll be back!

Great for Family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with our two young school-aged children. It was a great cabin for a family of four. Perfectly appointed, it had everything we needed. I appreciated the two separate living areas - the kids could watch TV in the loft upstairs, while my husband and I enjoyed sitting downstairs in front of the fire. I can tell the owners put a lot of thought into the decor; it was very much a mountain cabin with cute little details in the furniture and things on the walls!

It's a pet friendly cabin, but you'd never know that pets are regular visitors as it was immaculately clean. We don't have pets and aren't pet people, and we saw no evidence of animals having in the cabin at all (a huge plus!).

Another plus was that the owners were very responsive throughout the whole process.

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent about 5 days here and it was wonderful! Very quiet and peaceful. Lots of great hikes and time to read. We had a downpour of rain one of the days that really cooled things off. The drive around the lake was breathtaking and would highly recommend it. Can't wait to go back again-perhaps in the Fall this time to see some of the colors. Our two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers loved it! The beds were so comfortable and the linens...so soft!

Owner's Response: Hi Marianne, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Tahoe. I love that you spent the day driving around the lake on your trip. I fully agree that the views are amazing! We are looking forward to having you and your dogs back again this fall. Alanna

Perfect spot for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting adorable cottage and we are most certainly looking at our calendars to book another trip! Albeit, we've only been during the winter months, we are definitely looking at exploring this area during the summer. The location is ideal and well situated, the yard is perfect for kiddos and pets to safely explore. The kitchen is well equipped , furnishings are tastful and comfortable. The owners are truly a delight to work with - always providing suggestions for things to do and see while vacationing. We are looking forward to our next trip for sure!

Owner's Response: Catherine, Thank you so much for the review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We just love our location also (especially Heidi Way) where the kids can ride bikes and the dogs can run around. The green space in the back is not bad either. We really hope you can join us in summer. You will love the Tahoe Donner Beach Club! Alanna
