Truckee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7 adults)

Enjoy the beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Donner Lake as a summer guest or winter ski leaser. Access to the private property owner's beach available for additional fee, one short block from the front door. (Beach is restricted during certain holidays to property owner's only).

A great destination for family with children of any age. The private beach offers, ping pong, horse shoes, 2 volleyball courts, designated swimming areas and park like setting with playground equipment for the younger children. Donner Lake area is very quite a wonderful place to bring the bikes for riding. Golfer's are 15 to 20 minutes from some of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the Tahoe area.

Streets are plowed in the winter and accessible year round. Cabin is within 15-30 minutes of major ski resorts. Sugar Bowl is within 15 minutes, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and North Star are approximately 30 minutes driving time. There are other smaller less expensive ski hills close if you are a beginner or teaching children to ski/snowboard.

Cabin is 45 minute drive to Reno or North Shore of Lake Tahoe if you want to catch a show and gamble.

About Carolyn Riolo

We raised our 3 daughters with summer and winter trips to the cabin at Donner, they loved the beach in summer, swimming, boating, fishing. Riding their bikes in the quite neighborhoods and hiking. Winters were always about skiing and snowboarding, we hit all the major ski areas, Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar and Sugar Bowl each resort less than 30 minutes from the cabin. Now my grandchildren are repeating the experiences and loving every minute of their time at the cabin.

Carolyn Riolo purchased this cabin in 1981

Why Carolyn Riolo chose Truckee

My husband and I fell in love with Donner Lake in 1976 while camping in the area. We searched diligently for a cabin to purchase and in the fall of 1976 bought our first cabin with partners. In 1980 we purchased another lot and built a cabin, our 3 children were young and loved mountains, swimming in the lake, riding their bikes, sledding on the little snow hill, skiing in the winter. The area has not changed dramatically in the last 34 years, it remains a quite, beautiful retreat, without throngs of tourists clogging the streets.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy fishing in Donner or one of the nearby lakes. Many trips are pure relaxing times to kick back with a good book away from all the chores and worries of home and office. It is always fun to return to the Cabin after a day on the slopes, enjoy good company, a warm fire and relax without the long drive home.

Perfect spacious cabin close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cozy but spacious corner lot cabin for three nights as myself and family were in Donner for the triathlon. Very clean, well stocked, lacked nothing in the kitchen. Great layout..nice deck, with gas bbq..loved grilling and enjoying the perfect evenings after spending the day at the beach which is walkable, easily. Carolyn always emailed back timely and made the experience very easy. We had three vehicles and had no problem with parking. I would recommend this cabin and plan to use it again in the future. Thanks Carolyn!
