Had a lovely time

  • 4 of 5

We came across this beautiful family cabin on VRBO and Maria was quick to respond and offer us the place for a decent rate. Our group of 21 people had included elders and toddlers and all of them had a great time!

We would love to come back again.

Long time customers

  • 5 of 5

We are a long time customers, and love this house. If you have big family or large group of friends you will find this house perfect for all your needs.

Whith 3 levels of bedrooms and two spacious living rooms, one on the main floor and one in the basement, you have all you need for perfect family vacation. There are quiet bedrooms for someone to rest, at the same time you can gather friends by the big dining table for a dinner on the main floor and have kids to have their own party at the basement level. Pool table is a great addition to your family activities .

Modern looking but with old-good ski cabin feel, the house is spacious, you wouldn't feel crowded with all your guests. Well maintained and clean (no pets aloud, no smell, so it's good for people with allergy). Big wooden beds with good mattresses and nice linen, what I like the most are huge furry blankets which make you feel cozy in bed or on the leather couch. Big deck with the comfortable couch and grill, perfect playground for kids by the creek. Owners respond to all your needs right away. And location is just perfect! Tahoe Donner the best family ski resort just few blocks away. Short drive to all other resorts and cross country skiing. You can walk or drive to some nice trails nearby. Short drive to the lake for a walk or swim in summer time. A real gem is Trout Creek Recreation Center which you will have access to, heated outdoor pool all year round, spa, massage and fitness center. Golf course during the summer time. At The Lodge Restaurant & Pub bistro we always had the best dinner in all Truckee area.

Cabin At Tahoe Donner

  • 1 of 5

In contrast to the glowing reports on the condition of the "Cabin At Tahoe Donner", we found the home well worn and in need of major maintenance. It is an excellent and spacious home for a large group; however, as owners of our own vacation rental, we would not expect guests to experience stained carpets, window screens missing or with holes, black scuff marks on many walls, holes in one bathroom where towel racks had been removed, ants on floors, carpets, and furniture the week of our stay, and grossest of all, multiple sightings of mice, and having to clean up mouse droppings. No broom and dustpan or bathroom cleaning supplies were available for our use. Luckily, we found a shop vac in the garage to deal with the ants and mouse droppings. The listing photos do not accurately reflect the home's present appearance.

We would not recommend the "Cabin At Tahoe Donner" at this time.

Owner's Response: Dealing with guests who left this review was hard from the beginning. It all started with them negotiating a lowest possible rate, didn't want cleaning or linens/towels provided. Then it continued with never ending complaints about everything the main intention of which was to get bigger discount. Being located in the forest, property owners have to deal with insects and animals all the time. There is nothing you can do other than keeping it under control. The past 2 months the cabin was occupied back-to-back, but the last guests were the first who reported/complained. Right after it was reported, we came to the cabin to verify the complaint, but didn't notice any signs of ants, but just in case and as a precaution, the property was treated inside and out by a professional pest control. Pest control folks were able to catch a few mice though. Again, it's almost impossible to 100% guarantee that the cabin is free of mice or insects as they are living all around. It has been a busy summer and with such amount of traffic few things went out of control. We've reinstalled a couple of window screens and ordering few more were still missing. We're definitely planning a major maintenance at the end of the season to bring things back to perfect order. In the meantime please accept our sincere apologies for 2 blemish spots on the carpet in the leaving room and other cosmetic defects in case if noticed any. The cabin has plenty of cleaning supplies available, we moved the broom and few other house keeping items from the storage to the garage and the main living space. We offered the last guests to reimburse for anything that they would have needed but was missing, but at the end they seemed to be fine with what was available. Again, we apologies if you find cabin's condition being unacceptably bad, as did the guests who left this review. We love our home and we love staying at the cabin and we always have unforgettable and enjoyful time. We understand that we come from a different angle and with a different attitude, thus we always listen to the feedback and constantly looking at improving things to our guests satisfaction and enjoyment. We hope you have a wonderful time, but feel free to let us know should you run into any problems during your stay.
