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. In summer or winter(snow shoeing) we love walking into downtown Truckee for lunch or shopping around or having a drink.

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. Its also down a private drive with just a few homes, so its safe, quiet and secluded in a lovely forested setting.

The cabin is warm, stylish and spacious and the owner, who is an interior designer, has put a lot of effort into the design of the space. We think you'll be impressed!!

Climbing To Comfort

  • 4 of 5

Great house with 3 levels, each with its own balcony. Kids loved the custom extra sleeping area on the bottom level. Short drive from downtown Truckee, very manageable.

Only negative is being 3 levels, there are some hefty stairs. Not a big deal, but something worth noting if you have small children or don't want to stumble after a night at one of the local bars.

Overall, I would recommend this house and would gladly use it again... hopefully during the winter months!

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.
