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

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.

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.

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

GREAT CABIN, GREAT LOCATION. PERFECT FOR KIDS AND DOGS.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay and Alanna made it really easy for us. We were one family of four with two young boys and another couple with two dogs. The cabin was the perfect size and the boys loved the loft. The bedding was great - really nice hotel style linens instead of the 2nd hand sheets I'm used to at rental cabins. A nice large table for family dinners and then card games after. The kitchen is nicely appointed for cooking.

The Tahoe-Donner neighborhood is all cabins and the roads are quiet - great for taking the dogs for a run. We didn't use the shared rec. center, but it sounded nice; we were exhausted after skiing at Sugar Bowl, which was just a few minutes drive away. Wild Cherries coffee shop is just down the hill for coffee and eats.

I can't wait to come back to this cabin!

Owner's Response: Mark, thanks so much for the kind review. We work really hard to appoint our home like a hotel to give our guest the best experience possible. I am so glad you like the bedding. It is commercial bedding used by the hospitality industry and it was sourced with comfort in mind so it is great to get positive feedback on our linens. We also replace our linens annually so that all of our linens are fresh each year. The Tahoe Donner Recreation Center is amazing and you will have to check it out on your next stay (everything from parks, to pools, hiking, golfing, horse back riding, cross country skiing and my kids favorite the beach club at Donner Lake). I am so glad to hear that you had a nice stay in Tahoe and we do hope you will come back again real soon! Alanna

PERFECT CHRISTMAS CABIN

  • 5 of 5
My husband, BFF, her boyfriend and their two terriers stayed in this warm, well-appointed and comfortable home the week of Christmas. It was perfect for all. We cooked every day, and the well-stocked kitchen made cooking enjoyable, easy and fun. We had a fire every night that we sat around in the evening. The loft with a T.V. and futon was relaxing when we watched a movie. It was beautiful when we took the dogs on a walk in the community. The location is very convenient to skiing, stores and downtown Truckee. Alanna was great. She made the entire process painless and smooth. Overall, it was fantastic, and all of us have stated that we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Alanna!!!!

A GOOD PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
It was really easy to deal with the owner as everything went smooth from making a reservation to getting my deposit back. For two couples, two kids and a dog this place was perfect. There are easy hiking trails nearby. Only thing we misunderstood was how far the pool/spa was and it actually costs money to use them.

The place is also very close to safeway which makes it easier to get what you need. 10mins to lake donner and 30 mins to lake tahoe.
