August 23, 2016 my life partner passed away in my arms here in Donner Lake. There were 3 dear friends of Laura who were with me those last few days. On this first year anniversary they asked if they could come up and spend it with me for in their hearts they still felt that connection to her. I decided to rent a vacation home and it did not take me long to find Debbie's private Idaho. The photos are wonderful but the house and all that surrounds it is amazing but more importantly it is the energy that one feels when you first walk into the house. You just know it was all meant. The back yard is like a secret garden and regardless if you are sitting by the fire pit or laying in the hammock looking up at the stars, the universe and all it's silence will wrap itself around you if you allow. For the girls it was a place of peace that brought forth the reality that my girl was their link in the friendships that were being formed and now it is me that will keep that connection. For me I believe Laura guided me to find your home and though this year has been all the "Firsts"coming so soon after her leaving, this was meant to be. One last note. Before Laura passed away I made her promise that she would let me know she made it. She died at 8:41am that Tuesday morning. That night as I was talking with my bff and staring out at the lake I looked up and noticed this one star shinning brightly in the sky all alone. I kept staring and then a few moments later another shined through directly under it. I kept staring and a third star shined directly under the other two. I realized at the moment it was my girl and our pups Morgan and Prior. They were all together and that brought a smile. The time was 8:05pm and for one hour no other stars shined. This happend for exactly one month after. Later did I find out that those lights were Saturn, Mars and Antares and were perfectly vertical lined. This year as I laid in the hammock staring up, I saw in between the trees the first star, then the second and finally the third and this time they were perfectly horizontal but only for a few minutes. That was magical. The girls want to make this a yearly event and asked me as we all sat outside having dinner and sharing wonderful wines. I only smiled and remained silent. Regardless, I know they will return to your house with or without me and remember that special link that remains in all our hearts. Thank you Debbie for sharing your home with all of us including my Laura.

Awesome and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice time here over Labor Day weekend. This lovely cabin is everything as advertised and more! The owners take pride in keeping their home beautiful, clean, and well maintained. It was so great coming home after a day of activity and relaxing on the comfy couches on the deck with a glass of wine, listening to the waterfall, and enjoying the jacuzzi. It doesn't get much better than this!

Beautiful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this beautiful cabin. What an amazing setting tucked away in the woods. We loved sitting out on the back porch and listening to the chipmunks. We had plenty of room for four adults and three teen and pre teen-boys. The boys LOVED the loft and the "retro" (their word not mine) video games up there. We had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our time in Truckee. Thanks Debbie.

Only if you're desperate

  • 1 of 5

I will start off by saying the backyard was amazing, perfectly set up for family time and relaxing. Debbie the owner was a pain in the butt to deal with. There is so much clutter and decor I had to put stuff away so my kids wouldn't break anything. My three year old accidentally ran through the screen door and it came off its tracks and Debbie is having us pay and extra 150 to replace it, which I completely understand however she also nickel and dimed us even more because her house cleaner had extra cleaning which is very strange because we left the house in fine condition. We didn't empty the trash cans on our way out (just forgot with the commotion of packing up three kids) and we were charged and extra 250 dollars!! Maybe Debbie needs a new cleaner?! Lastly I didn't like the location, the street is a pass way for other streets so people are constantly flying bye...not great for littles riding their bikes. My husband and I have been renting homes with our kids and dog for many years and never experienced such horrendous service.

Owner's Response: I am deeply saddened by this review. although not surprised. when a guest treats the home like anything but a home there will be a difference of opinion. I don't mind if you forget to take out the trash, but when there is 4 days of dirty diapers sitting, then, yes I have an issue. Yes, the home is filled with lovely décor. And if you move the items and throw them under the sink, yes I will have an issue. If you move my indoor furniture outside and leave it in the rain, yes I will have an issue. STAYCATION. better idea. AND, since I love those fur babies, don't ruin it for others, by leaving 4 days of pet poop for the next guest
