Great Tahoe Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin has a great layout and location. We enjoyed being able to walk out the back door and access TD trails. Kitchen is well equipped and very functional.

Terrible House

  • 1 of 5

1. Upon move in, we noticed the couch was covered with a lot of pet hair. This obviously was not cleaned when the last guest moved.

2. My daughter upon going to bed in the full bed downstairs was bitten by ants. She had to dispose of the ants but not until after she was bitten. There were also pet hair on her pillow. Again, it was not cleaned properly.

3. We noticed the downstair's screen door could not be closed properly, and the upstair's screen door has holes in it. So the entire time we had to leave the glass doors closed to prevent insects from coming in. Due to the excessive heat during the day, this made it almost unbearable.

4. There was no facecloth furnished in either bathroom.

The owner also tried to find other ways to ask for extra money after we left. Overall it was a terrible experience. We spent so much money, yet our family had a very bad vacation due to the house.

Best Owner on VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down best owner to work with on the entire VRBO site. I was unable to book due to family issues; but had communicated many times and was ready to make my reservation. Becky is friendly, professional, timely and willing to work with renters. I have worked with owners on VRBO over 15 times in recent years, experiencing many levels of customer service.

I chose her property for mainly three reasons. First, access to all Tahoe Donner amenities--including their award winning golf course; this course is wonderful for you golfers out there! By looking at Google Satellite I could tell all amenities are extremely close; which is important if your sharing a car with other family members.

Secondly, the property itself looks like Becky & her husband put their hearts into updating and furnishing. Upgraded kitchen appliances is huge for me, as is the privacy of the huge lot this cabin sits on. Close to everything, but secluded.

Lastly, Becky’s outstanding customer service set her apart from other properties I was considering in the area. As other reviews on this page state ; if an issue arises during our stay, I had all the confidence it would be taken care of immediately. The Trunkee/ Tahoe area is my families favorite vacation spot in the world, I hope to some day re-book with Becky in this lovely cabin.

A Winter Wonderland!

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this cabin. We hope to come back again. Everything you need for the perfect get-away! A great location to enjoy all that Truckee has to offer. Our dogs love it too!

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We loved this cozy little cabin! It was more spacious than I thought it would be after seeing the photos. There was plenty of room for 8 people. We had one issue with the power going out in only the kitchen (could have been due to the snow storm) but Becky was very helpful and called us immediately. It wasn't a big deal! I would definitely recommend staying here, it has everything you need.

Owner's Response: Thanks Victoria. This Winter was a doozy. Hoping for another good snow year in 2018, but with less inconvenience like power outages :)

Clean and cozy, close to slopes

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time, Becky (owner) was very responsive and helpful throughout entire process.

For a cabin that allows dogs, it was extremely clean, and not one dog hair was present anywhere.

All of the beds were comfortable, fireplace and HVAC system were both warm.
