Overview

About the property

Five Bedroom Cabin At Quiet Corner In The West End Of Donner Lake. Level yard

This five and one half bedroom house was one of the first houses in the original subdivision. It was built by two families as a ski cabin and is comfortable with groups large and small. It is on a level lot and backs up to open forest. It is unique in that there is a private back yard with fire pit to enjoy the starry nights.

The open floor plan of the kitchen and living area makes for enjoyable meal preparation and easy conversation.

Bedroom one and two are on the first floor. Bedroom one has a queen bed and bunk with a double on the bottom. Bedroom two has a queen and twin. There is one bath downstairs and one bath upstairs.

Upstairs is bedroom 3 with a queen bed, bedroom 4 has two bunks, one with a double on the bottom. Bedroom five has a king size bed. The house originally had six bedrooms and this room now has a washer and dryer that can be hidden behind the screen and has a twin bed and great view of the forest.

It is a great neighborhood for quiet walks and there is close access to hiking the Old Lincoln highway as well as the Pacific Crest Trail.

This comfortable, authentic cabin is and continues to be a great vacation destination for families of all sizes.

The house is tucked into a quiet back corner of the area situated on a curve so that the few cars that do pass by must go very slow. This makes it a very safe area for children, pets and playing. It is a short walk to the beach and a great area for biking.

Why Donna or Joe Mathews chose Truckee

Great Quiet corner, level lot, close to beach, private yard backs up to National forest. As Sugar Bowl ski patrollers we loved the access to the mountains

What makes this cabin unique

Front yard and private back yard with lovely adjacent mountainside and firepit in a quiet corner close to beach. Great for hiking, biking and relaxing. The fabulous Sierra mountain air is like no other-instant relaxation.

True cabin feel, roomy, very comfortable, kitchen fully stocked and easy to relax.

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from this wonderful cabin after a very enjoyable Thanksgiving. There were my two adult children,

two adult in-law children and my 3 grandboys who seem to the busiest little boys ever. This cabin accommodated all of us quite nicely. Each bedroom had it's own personality with plenty of beds, and comfortable bedding.

Easy walking neighborhood. Large boulders on the side of the cabin which provided hours of play for my grandboys. We did get some snow and the boys found a great sled hill just around the corner.

All in all the house filled all of our expectations and we are expecting to rent it again in the future.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful! It's large but retains the cozy cabin feel, has two great decks for relaxing, a nice fire pit and beautiful woodsy location. Away from the hustle and bustle of busier Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake has everything we need for a great family getaway, and the house can accommodate all of our grown kids and young grandkids as they come and go according to their schedules. Thanks, Donna and Joe for such a lovely home you share.

Wonderful family celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our son's wedding was in Truckee. We needed a place for our children and grandchildren to stay. This was perfect! The layout of the house is great for a large family. The house is very clean, kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. The back yard is wonderful! The kids loved climbing on the rocks, plenty of seating for family gatherings around the firepit. Great location to the beach.

The owners, Donna and Joe, were wonderful to work with. Check in and check out was very easy.

We would definitely stay here again in the future! Loved our family wedding celebration in Truckee!

Hello
We hope you will enjoy your stay at our mountain getaway. The address is 15805 Conifer, at the corner of Conifer and Cottonwood. Take Maple Street off South Shore Drive to Conifer and turn right- you will run right into the driveway. The lockbox code is 1952. Push the center tab to release the key. The code will need to be entered again to reset the tab to replace the key. Everything should be self-explanatory entering, except perhaps the antique, powerful vacuum that runs (if you are interested in using it) by pushing down on the silver clip. The WiFi code is listed next to the refrigerator. Thank you for taking care of our home. I have included the housekeeping rules for your convenience. Please note that we are now charging 10$ per guest over 6 people.
Best,
Joe and Donna Mathews
