Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic stay. Your house was a home from home with everything we could have possibly needed. Its all the little touches that make the difference, the extras in the kitchen, the firepit was a hit with all and we spotted pine martins, deer at breakfast time just walking past the window and we even turned into amateur birdwatchers thanks to the many books you provided which helped us to find out the names but sadly no bears although we took that to be a bonus. Went swimming in Lake Tahoe at one of the secret coves, hiked up Eagle Falls, walked round Spooner Lake, cycled round Donner Lake which was incredibly good value thanks to your residence card. We shall tell our friends and hopefuly you will get more visitors from Scotland. Thanks for all you help and advice along the way it was very much appreciated. Thanks again.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay in the lake Tahoe area! We loved it. It was clean, the hot tub was awesome, and the beds were comfy! The owners were easy to deal with and extremely helpful. We will go back to stay here again! It is in a great location. Truckee is fun and has everything you need, and there are lots of ski areas close by. Its not far from Tahoe City either. We like it better than the south shore area of Tahoe! It's a gorgeous quiet getaway with beautiful trees to see in the backyard. Can't wait to go back!

TRULY SATISFIED

  • 5 of 5
All I have to say is we cannot wait to go back! We travel often and I have never felt so compelled to write a review. Everything from booking, to check out was wonderful and done with ease. Everything was very clean. The towels were fresh, soft and had a clean sent. We couldn't have asked for a more organized and accommodating kitchen. From the simplest kitchen tool, like a peeler, to a panini press, we were taken care of. They even had extra paper towel, toilet paper, aluminum foil, sandwich baggies and more. The hot tub was clean. The yard was beautiful. The beds were super comfortable. Judy was extremely sweet and we felt that she would be available if we needed anything. They even had a book filled with helpful information alphabetized. The best part about the book was that the opening was filled with a bit of humor. If you go... you will read about apples and know what I mean. The most difficult part about writing this review, is that I fear you may book your stay on a date that I want to come back.

ALL THAT IT IS DESCRIBED TO BE AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
My family, friends and I had a very comfortable stay at Pine Marten Lodge. The cabin is exactly as pictured. It had all the amenities you may need to feel right at home. Extremely comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture everywhere! From the living room, dining room and outside. We had such a great time lounging in this home. We took advantage of every inch of it!

It's summer, so we spent a lot of time in the backyard. Loved the hot tub, grill, bonfire pit and hammock. Truly a great stay in the great outdoors. We most definitely will be reserving this home again!

The owner, Judy, is super easy to work with. Very prompt with correspondence. This was my first time using VRBO and I'm impressed with the ease of making reservations, communicating directly with the owner and the check-in/check-out process.

Thank you Judy!! We appreciate sharing your home with us!

SO LOVELY, RESTFUL AND COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a lovely, restful stay at your beautiful home. You have everything so well stocked, from soft towels to hair dryers to basics in the kitchen, so it truly felt like we were staying as guests in someone's home. The master bed is so wonderfully soft and comfortable and I am extremely picky about this!

The first day out, as we were hiking in a remote area some 20 miles away, we discovered we had lost the house key. I found a place to email the owner, who promptly sent me the number for the property manager. Upon return to the house, we found a newly replaced house key in the lock box. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will certainly return!

BEST OF THE BEST. WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
First off, owners are very friendly and helpful. They assured us that our stay would be great and they indeed were right. The cabin itself is absolutely beautiful. Feels like home away from home, yet it still has that cabin feel to it that everyone wants out of a Truckee/Tahoe trip!

They had extras of everything! Plates, spoons, forks, towels, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. Everything was clean upon arrival. The beds, sofas and chairs are all comfortable. The hot tub worked perfectly. The grill cooked our steaks very well (or rare depending on how you like it). Location is great! Truckee is a beautiful town itself with a lot of options of things to do. If Truckee isn't your cup of tea, Tahoe is just a short drive away!

I cannot stress how perfect our weekend was and a great deal of it is because of this cabin. Without a doubt, I would stay here again.

GREAT SPRING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time at Pine Marten Lodge. The house was even better than the photos, beautiful furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, etc. Had to drag the boys downstairs from the loft and the xBox after a day of skiing. Judy was great to work with, promptly answering our questions. Property management company dropped off some items within an hour of calling them. We would return again!

It's perfect for afternoon BBQ's on the 6-burner gas grill and evening cocktails. It's also where you'll find the 4-person hot tub. Outdoor speakers allow you to enjoy your favorite music - or just enjoy the silence of the woods. You'll also find a well-stocked, country kitchen with everything you need to create a gourmet meal. Panini grill, espresso machine, and belgian waffle maker - you name it! The dining room has seating for six, with an additional breakfast bar seating for two.
