About the property

4 Bedroom/2 Bath Sleeps 13. 2600 Sq Ft Mountain Chalet That Feels Like Home

This cabin is perfect for multiple families who want to have a great get-away together. The two story chalet features four bedrooms and enough beds to sleep up to 13 people. The large deck also has a hot tub to help you relax at the end of your day. The location in Tahoe Donner puts you right in the center of both winter and summer activities, but is also located on a quiet, forested street that provides a relaxing place to stay.

The owners recently replaced all of the beds with new comfortable mattresses and have upgraded all of the kitchen plates and utensils. Our goal is to have everyone feel like they are in their own home. The Cabin is a roomy, charming and well-appointed home located on a flat lot in a beautiful wooded setting. The home welcomes you with comfortable furnishings, tasteful decorations, and all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. The Cabin is the perfect place to make memories with your family and friends and take in all the sights and activities that make Tahoe famous.

The downstairs rooms feature a California King in one room and a pillow top Queen bed in the second room. Upstairs is a larger room with a California King bed, and a large bedroom with 2 queens and 2 bunk beds. This room also has a big screen TV, sofa, and Foosball table. It is the perfect kids area. A day bed in loft opens to a king sized bed.

Tahoe Donner is a highly desirable, year-round mountain community located in the historic town of Truckee. The area is easily accessible from Highway 80, and just 35 miles from Reno and 100 miles from Sacramento. You can find excellent casual and fine dining as well as unique specialty shops in old town Truckee, which is just minutes away. Groceries, a hardware store, cafes, etc. are also just minutes away.

Tahoe Donner has one of the best ski resorts for young skiers and people just learning to ski. Within minutes are 10 other ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, and Northstar. If cross country skiing is your winter sport, Tahoe Donner has one of California's largest x-country ski parks, and was recently named the third best in the country. Numerous trails for snow shoeing and hills for sledding are located right in Tahoe Donner.

And when the snow melts, break out the golf clubs, mountain bikes, and river rafts. Tahoe Donner has two recreation areas with swimming pools and has a private beach on the East end of Donner Lake. Miles of hiking trails, adventure parks, and miniature golf courses supply endless hours of fun for the whole family.

Some of the other amenities include high-speed wireless, private hot tub, access to Tahoe Donner facilities (for a small fee), parking room for 4 vehicles, and a perfect area for kids to hang out while adults enjoy their time together.

We do not allow pets or smoking. We do allow families that are looking to create special memories together.

About Brian Hicks

We purchased this home in early 2013 so that we could have a place that our children could grow up with and our family could create memories with friends and family to last a lifetime. We live in the Sacramento area and use this home quite often. We are happy to be able to share it with others during the times that we can't make it up.

Why Brian Hicks chose Truckee

We chose Tahoe Donner because of all the amenities and the proximity to Sacramento. The property has a 'mountain cabin' feel while still offering all of the comforts of a modern home.

What makes this cabin unique

We wanted a home that we could get away from it all and would allow us to entertain our entire extended family for memorable family get-togethers. Our location in Tahoe Donner is on a very quiet street and yet we are minutes away from skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, golfing, biking, and swimming at both the community pools and at the private beach at Donner Lake.

Spacious Cabin Convenient to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful Tahoe-Donner cabin. The space was more than adequate for our group of 10. The kids' room is fantastic, allowing the younger people in our group to play, talk and listen to music while grownups could do the same downstairs. All of the furnishings are comfortable, and the home is well maintained. The sofa was big enough to fit out entire group when we gathered in the evening to watch the Olympics or a movie. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we enjoyed sharing most of our meals at the cabin. The hot tub was also a big treat. We highly recommend a visit if you're planning a trip to the mountains.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, and we are super happy that you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. We wanted to have a house that would allow kids to have their own space and room for everyone to get together at times too. Glad Mother Nature also provided some fresh snow for you and your family. Please think of us again if you plan to stay in the Truckee area.

Fantastic Family Friend Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house over Easter with another family and really enjoyed our stay. The house is big and nicely configured for families. There's a huge room upstairs for kids with bunk beds, fussball, and a tv, that the kids loved to hang out in. The kitchen is well stocked with nice knives and pots and pans and the instruction binder had every detail. The owner, Brian, is very responsive and helpful and answered questions very quickly. We had an excellent stay at this house and definitely hope to return again!
