Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We rent the house for Christmas 2016. The house is beautiful, everything that you need is there and is big a enough for 6 people. Great location, we had a lot of snow but the streets were always clean so you could drive everywhere. We love the wood stove, it kept the house warm and there is plenty of firewod. We love to go back for Christmas 2017.

Thanks Leonore and Richard

Four adult men, related, on a fishing and golf trip. Several lakes and rivers to chose from as well as many golf courses in the area. The cabin was perfect in all respects. We have been to this area regularly for 7 years and are planning a return next year, same time and will be reusing the cabin again if available. We had a visiting deer for many hours resting behind the cabin which we enjoyed watching. We are definitely planning on returning. Thanks Lenore and Richard for your hospitality.

Return renter, excellent as expected!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect rental for our family trips to the Truckee area. Have rented numerous times and will continue to do so. Great location and close to many amenities offered in the Tahoe Donner area for both winter and summer fun. The cabin is spacious, well maintained, and always clean upon our arrival. The owner is attentive and responds promptly. Will definitely be back in the future!

Would rent again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin at a reasonable rate. Very clean. Not dusty. Laminate floors throughout, with cushy warm carpets in the bedroom. Nicely furnished with classic Tahoe cabin charm. Quiet location in Donner. We would definitely rent again, winter or summer. Steep steps to get to front door.

All the Comforts of Home + Bears! (well, one bear)

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at the Denoix's cabin. This is a beautifully maintained property and very comfortable - you can kick back, relax and enjoy the serenity of whispering pines and blue sky. Because of its location, there is very little road traffic and even on a weekend in July, the neighborhood was very quiet. We loved sitting out on the deck - a great place to enjoy coffee and breakfast in the morning or a soothing libation in the evening under the stars. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Richard is great work to with - answered all my questions and provided complete information about all aspects of our stay. I really appreciated the fact that the rental included the housecleaning fee. A lot of places charge an additional fee on top of the rent and sometimes those fees are very high. My deposit was returned promptly after we had returned from our weekend. We hope to return for another stay sometime in the future.

Notes: the concern about bears is real! On our second morning there my husband and I were sitting on the deck, about 7:30 am, when we heard a noise and looked up to see a bear ambling across the road right in front of the deck. We suspect the noise was the bear having a go at the "bear proof" trash box next to the cabin driveway. The bear proceeded to check out the neighbors trash box across the road and then wandered off through their property. It was cool to see the bear - but definitely brought home to us the reality of the situation. It's very important to follow the rules when it comes to bear-proofing!

One other note: Richard and Lenore Denoix own/operate the Casse-Croute Bakery in my hometown, Livermore, CA - a fact I did not know when I first contacted them about renting this cabin. What a coincidince! I can recommend their bakery, as well as their cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Teresa for your comments. I am jealous! I know bears roam around the area but never actually got to see one near the cabin.
