Hello! Just got back yesterday from 3 nights in this cabin. We had a great experience! The private hot tub was fantastic, grill was easy to use and the cabin was clean and really well stocked. Interacting with the owner was great and the location was close enough to civilization but far enough that we still felt we were in nature. Would/will probably stay again :)
The house was comfortable and well stocked for our family. We would definitely go back and stay here!
This home away from home did meet my expectations, we were not expecting a mansion.
There were six of us, and we all agreed that it was a good size for that many. More would have been doable, but a little cramped.
We had a fantastic time there nonetheless. It was closer to Truckee and the Tahoe Donner general store there than we usually get. The house also has a very good aspect as far a the sun goes, facing south, southwest.
We arrived just as the snow began. Over the next two days, we would get almost 3 feet of snow. The owner called because the could see that the driveway was covered, but he instructed me how to turn on the driveway heaters -- very handy! Almost all of his neighbors were shoveling furiously to clear the driveway, while some shoveling was unavoidable, we had it easy by comparison. This made leaving easy, but delayed because 1-80 was shutdown much of the day we left. The cabin itself was clean, well stocked with pots and pans, lots of towels and toilet paper. We enjoyed our time there immensely. Thankfully there were some games because we couldn't leave the house.
I would definitely book this space again next year, if we come up.
My group arrived the weekend after record snow storms. If you're from California you know that it's been a few years since Tahoe had a grand snow season. We improvised as necessary, as in the case where the exterior trash compartment was buried in 10ft of snow (just leave the trash in the garage and tell the owner), and the driveway needed a some manual shoveling love, but you're going to Tahoe (Truckee) in the dead of winter, don't expect to be overtly lazy. The hot tub is still in full cycle during the winter which is awesome. The house comes equipped with a Nest thermostat, but if you're savvy with wood stoves you'll have no problem getting this cabin toasty.
Kitchen is loaded with pots/pans/utensils/dishes/etc and towels are plentiful.
