About Deborah

We love mountain bike riding and walks in the woods or just around the neighborhood. In the summer, eating or just relaxing on the back porches overlooking the tree covered valley below is very peaceful.

Deborah purchased this house in 2006

Why Deborah chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Our vacation home is towards the lower part of Tahoe Donner so it's easy to get to all the amenities and into town for shopping and restaurants.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Paradise in a winter wonderland!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful place for our family to be while enjoying the huge snowfalls from the week before. The owners were so very helpful and their home was so comfortable for kids and adults alike. We can't wait to go back during the summer to take advantage of the beautiful setting. Thank you so very much!

Wonderful cabin in upper Tahoe Donner for large families.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is perfect for the large family looking for a trip to Tahoe. It's definitely larger than it appears in the pictures provided. The location was a little hard to find in the snow covered terrain, but we found it nonetheless. If your family has large vehicles the parking is a little tight and the garages have low clearances.

The property was very well maintained and clean with plenty of towels and bedding for everyone. In the kitchen, you have everything you need including pantry items for your use if deemed necessary.

There's three floors with 1 master on the top floor, two bedrooms on the entry level, and the kids hideaway on the bottom floor with the large entertainment area that has a pool table. The kids hideaway has six beds and is very large. I think the kids stayed down in the entertainment area most of the trip. The upper area with the kitchen has plenty of space for adults with a large dinning table we were able to seat 10 around and an island that would seat two. One TV downstairs and one TV upstairs with satellite. Every room has it's own door to a balcony. The master has the hot tub access.

Deborah and Steve were very accessible by email and returned any inquiries almost immediately.

We would definitely recommend this property to any friends or relatives looking for a nice vacation cabin.

Great layout for families

  • 4 of 5

The kids especially liked the lower floor with pool table and large sleeping loft. The upstairs was very nice and warm for eating and socializing, and the owners were very accommodating.

Great place for group

  • 5 of 5

Deborah's place was great. The driveway was a little hard to find since we got in late at night and google maps doesn't direct you to go down the long driveway, but we eventually found the place. Upon arrival, the cabin was impressive looking - Very large and spacious with plenty of sleeping space, a living/kitchen area upstairs with bedroom and 1.5 bath, a middle level with another full bathroom and a couple bedrooms, and lower level that served as an entertainment area with another TV and couch and pool table, along with a few other games to play with. The bottom level had a kids play room/sleep room, which was a little strange for adults, but I could imagine how kids would really enjoy this separate space. Deborah also answered questions promptly and was very easy and nice to work with. Would definitely consider staying here on future visits. Thanks again!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As stated in several of the other reviews, the pictures do not do this house justice. It is a very nice house in a great location, close to Donner Lake. It has a great game room in the lower floor with a pool table and a nice stereo system that plays out on the deck as well. There is a deck on each level. The children's getaway was great and our 8 year old loved it.

It is located right on the hiking trail that leads to historic downtown Truckee (it was a little difficult to find for us since we didn't know the area but google maps helped).

We spent one day at Donner lake with the membership card that was included. This was fairly inexpensive and a nice day. They had water toys of every type for rent and a little fast food type of area. This was very nice as well.

We also spent one morning horseback riding, which was very nice.

Deborah was very nice and helpful with questions that we had.

Overall, I would highly recommend this home to anyone.
