About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Baden's Best sits nestled among a forest of pine trees on a quiet street in Tahoe Donner. You can feel the warmth emanate from this newer home the moment you step inside. Relax in the living room upstairs with its vaulted knotty pine ceiling, comfy leather couch and beautiful stone fireplace. If you still have energy after a hard day on the slopes, have fun socializing downstairs in the fourth bedroom/family room with its Big Screen TV & DVD player, Pool Table and multiple X-Box games. However, don't have too much fun and forget to prepare a scrumptious meal for your guests in the gourmet kitchen outfitted with everything a chef needs. Finally, before you retire for the evening, warm your tired feet in the brand new hot tub and gaze at the tress in the backyard. This gorgeous home, with its lovely surroundings and classic Tahoe setting, is sure to delight everyone.

I fell in love with this area 16 years ago and in 2004 my wife and I had the opportunity to have a dream come true when we purchased this beautiful home. Since 2004 we've decorated this home as if it were our own and enlarged the back deck to make room for a new hot tub. Our home is now furnished and ready to entertain guests at any time, I look forward to sharing my dream with you.

Beautiful Cabin perfect for Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had everything we hoped for, a great rec room with pool table and nice hot tub on back deck. All beds were outfitted with high-end linens and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and accommodated our family of 5 very nicely, it really felt like our home. I appreciated the nice stock of 'supplies' left in the garage for use during our stay, we did not want for anything. Mother nature was kind enough to dump 3 feet of snow the night we arrived so skiing was incredible. The driveway was plowed promptly given the circumstances allowing us to get to the slopes to enjoy the powder. Easy access to many ski-areas from the house.

Beautiful & comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

Everyone loved the cabin. All of the guests kept complimenting how beautiful and comfortable it was. Kids had a lot of fun playing in the snow in the back. Close to the ski resorts and stores as well. There were a few brief power outages during the evening though and a flashlight that needed new batteries, but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Selena. We are happy to hear that you & your guests had a fabulous time at the cabin. It's one of my favorite places to go anytime of year, I just love the mountains & fresh air. We are continuously adding or upgrading our furnishings to maintain the cabins beautiful & cozy feel and love that you enjoyed our hard work and dedication to maintaining our beautiful mountain cabin. We look forward to seeing you again. As for the power outages, all I can say is we have had one incredible winter. Unfortunately, often times with these winter storms power outages come along as a result. Even though they are out of our control, utility workers have been working round the clock to restore power to the area. We do apologize that you found a flashlight that was not working. We replace the batteries twice a year, once at the beginning of winter and once at the beginning of summer. We also try to leave extra batteries for the flashlights, lanterns, remote controls etc.. unfortunately a prior guest may have forgotten to shut it off or sometimes guests swap the batteries for other personal devices and don't always let us know.We hope that you found plenty of other alternate lights & lanterns to use during your stay.

Amazing Rental for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our families had an wonderful visit to Tahoe-Donner much in part to the amazing accommodations at Baden's Best. Comfortable and plenty of room for all the adults and kids to have their own sleeping quarters. The kids loved the basement bunk beds and the pool table. The location is prime - close to everything. The kitchen is fully stocked with every tool, pot and pan - making meals easy to prepare. We love gathering around the large table for meals, games and other activities. And, if the trip couldn't have been better and the hospitality more appreciated, our hosts rescued a lost lovie and promptly returned it to us even though we live hundreds of miles away. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. Baden's Best is our go-to Tahoe resting place from now on.

Owner's Response: Brent, Karen & I work really hard to furnish our guests with a beautiful vacation cabin and the rewards of our work show in reviews like yours. We were more than happy to return your stuffed frog back to you. It happened to us once and we certainly know how meaningful those precious one of a kind stuffed animals are to the kids.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been regular Tahoe-Donner visitors and owners since 1988. This was our first time staying at the Baden property. We had a very wonderful and memorable week largely due to this fabulous home. We were a family of 9 (8 adults and 1 baby) and it was extremely comfortable, spacious, beautiful and had every single thing one would have at home. We did not need one thing and cooked in several nights not needing a thing! All of the furnishings, accessories, linens, etc. were of the highest quality and looked and felt like new. Our family agreed that this is the perfect place to gather, relax, share time, and enjoy. We will be spending many more family time at Baden! John and Karen are so thoughtful, generous, inviting and caring as evidenced by their attention to detail, quality of interior and exterior design and many surpluses to make any stay fun, relaxing and memorable. Look no further as Baden is the perfect retreat! Deb S.

Great 4th of July Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent this past 4th of July weekend at this property with my girlfriend and 6 close friends! We had an amazing time and it was in large part due to this place. It was extremely spacious, clean and had just about every amenity you can think of - everything from pots and pans to a washer & drier and even sports equipment. John even allowed us to come up a night earlier when our friends' flights came in earlier than expected, free of charge. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone. Our group is already planning our next trip!

The only criticisms I have are:

1.) the upstairs was REALLY warm (like 80 degrees) the first 2 days of our visit and there was no way to adjust the temperature with the thermostat.

2.) The top shelves of both the freezer and the refrigerator were a little off. I left a few bottles of water on the top shelf of the freezer overnight and they did not freeze. They were actually room temperature when I checked them the next day. And all the produce we left on the top shelf of the fridge went bad overnight.

Other than that, everything was perfect! Thanks, John!

Can't Wait to Visit Again!

  • 5 of 5

Huge thank you to John and Karen for sharing their beautiful Tahoe Donner Cabin. The home is beautifully furnished and was very clean, cozy and spacious! John is very insightful and provided plenty of information upon arrival to make it easy to get situated. The home is easy to find and at a great location. The recommendation to eat at Pianeta's in downtown Truckee was phenomenal! The cabin's kitchen has everything you need to make meals. I enjoyed the feel in this home and the entertainment room set up in the downstairs provided for activities the nights we did not want to go out. The onsite hot tub was a bonus as well. I would definitely recommend others to consider staying at Baden's Best. I look forward to visiting again!
