Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you so much for letting the RAG team enjoy the cabin for the weekend. We had such a blast on the slopes and hanging out at the house... It's Monday morning. 13" new snow. 3 of 22 people remain. Time to "attack and get rad!" This house rocks! Thanks you so much.

I am a scientific philosopher ('The Scientific Worldview) originally from Wisconsin, Oregon, and Colorado. I retired from the California Geological Survey, where I worked on geological hazards involving landslides and earthquakes. I consult occasionally as a pedochronopaleoseismologist wherein I use soils to determine the recency of active faulting.

Glenn Borchardt purchased this house in 2003

Mountain View : Beautiful view of the open space along Alder Creek, Prosser Hill, and Mt. Rose, unobstructed by utility wires. Quiet. Location has very little traffic.

Wood decor, sky lights, and large windows make the Great Room bright and cheery--you won't want to leave!

The Tahoe Donner campground is within a half block. It can provide extra space for large reunions in the summer. Guests receive a discount at Tahoe Donner's club pools, sauna, spa, and weight and exercise rooms.

GREAT CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin exceeded our expectations - it was perfect for our needs (large group Tahoe trip) & well equipped (games, kitchen items, bedrooms/beds)!! The views off the back deck were great, especially with the snow! After a long day on the slopes, the group enjoyed lots of time in the hot tub. We also enjoyed the large dining room table for "family" style meals. Overall, a great house that made for a great trip!

Very well equipped cabin. Everything we needed in the kitchen cabinets. Good view off of the back deck. Nice hot tub, the jets are great. Seats 4 comfortably. Also, a nice network of trails nearby for hiking/running. Our extended family had a very nice vacation here!

GREAT BIG GROUP CABIN

  • 5 of 5
We spent our holiday with our family from down South in this lovely place for 3 nights 4 days. It is HUGE. We enjoyed the spacious kitchen, living & dining room....and not to mention the rooms. The outdoor deck has a beautiful view as well. Kids had a great time exploring outdoors. And although there isn't much for them to do outside they kept entertained. With only 30 min from Reno we couldn't have picked a better place for our stay.

In addition to being close to about a dozen ski resorts, we can hike the trails right outside our door, visit the stream and beaver ponds, and see most of the northern night sky from the spa. Being well-insulated, the house is not drafty even during the most severe winter storms. The driveway is reasonably flat for easy winter access. Guests have access to all of Tahoe Donner's amenities, sometimes at a discount. The best places to learn downhill or cross country skiing in all of Tahoe is just up the street. Swimming and exercise/weight lifting equipment, golf course, driving range, sled hill, and deli is just 1.5 mi away.
