WONDERFUL Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to relax and enjoy the mountain air. This place was just the spot. Walking distance to Donner Lake. Peaceful creek runs near it and is so wonderful to listen to when you're falling asleep or waking up. It was a home away from home for sure. Wonderful little place! Hottub was great after a long day of hiking. Kitchen was perfect for making anything we wanted. Truckee was 10 mins and North shore Tahoe was only 30! from door to door!

Good winter hideaway for our family of 4.

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation, Robin's home is warm, cozy and was a fantastic escape over Christmas vacation with our two kids, 8 and 6. It was just the right size for 4. The house itself is old but with updates including new fridge, new flooring, updated bathrooms and a warm wall heater in family room. It was ready to go when we got there which was nice- didn't have to wait for everything to heat up as it was snowing outside.

The downsides were a leaky sink and a friendly rodent who ate through some of our food each night, including packaged food I thought he wouldn't get into. Also no dishwasher, which is fine, but I didn't realize it. The hot tub was nice but is older. We would stay again, I'm not bothered by the mouse, but I think people looking for rentals might want to be aware.

Robin was easy to reach and responsive.

Fantastic Fun & Cozy For My 5oth

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at this cozy cabin hideaway and it was more incredible than I had expected. The Red Rob Inn gets five stars in our book because of the ease in which Robin was to work with and the overall quaintness of the cabin and its surroundings. Being able to build an outdoor fire in the fire pit was especially wonderful. We will be back and look forwarding to spending a longer time period. Thank you so much it was a nice Birthday getaway!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet little cottage that was exactly what we needed. It is quiet and feels private, warm and cozy. Our kids loved playing in the piles of snow outside and using the many sleds that were stowed under the house. The wood burning stove is easy to manage, and the kitchen is well stocked. This house was perfect for our family of four. The owner was very easy to work with and responsive. We look forward to coming back.
