Truckee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 Lake Tahoe North Shore

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.

The communication in the build up to our stay was excellent. Everything we needed was at the Cabin when we arrived. The cabin itself is gorgeous, well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We had a great stay and have only positive things to stay.

Great big space for families, central in Tahoe Donner, nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

Brian was a superb host. Everything was as described, and plenty of space for families. Games were located in the loft area. Kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable. The only thing was one of the bunk beds didn't have a strong supporting ladder, so my kids slept on the other beds closer to the ground. Other than that, everything was great!

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. This is our 2nd year staying there with 2 families (6 kids total). There are 3 adult bedrooms too! The kids room is HUGE with a fun foosball table. The house is super-well maintained with a nice layout. The jacuzzi on the deck is great too. The other nice thing is that it's literally 2 blocks from Donner ski slopes so it's very convienient. Brian is nice and helpful and really wants his guests to have a great stay. I'd highly recommend this place for families.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU for coming back. We love that you love staying at our cabin. We want to make it a nice place for both kids and adults, and this year Mother Nature has helped us out. Hope to have you all out again next year for another great ski weekend.

Best host ever! and adorable homy place!

  • 5 of 5

Brian is the owner and made our stay one the best ever. We've been renting places in Tahoe for a long time and this was by far the easiest and nicest. When we arrived, there was a snow storm, while I was reading the instructions to open the door, it wasn't clear, I decided to call the owner directly, because he had been so proactive in reaching out and giving us tips for our kids, telling us to arrive early to accommodate our schedule. He was always available, and responsive for any inquiry we had. The home itself is cute and cosy and every thing you may need is there, making it feel like a home and less like a rental. Greta hottub at perfect temperature, great rooms for families and the kid room was a huge win! Super close to the slopes and recreation center. Great deal!

Great family/friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a post Christmas family holiday, and had 4 adults and 7 children. The set up of the cabin was ideal for our two families, and I was impressed that there was a COMFORTABLE bed for everyone (very unusual for rental cabins). The kid room was fantastic, and an ideal space for the kids to play. It was a bit challenging to share 2 bathrooms with 11 people, but there was plenty of hot water for all. The hot tub was a great bonus, and the kids enjoyed it every day after playing in all the SNOW! We would definitely come back for a large family getaway!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you had a great time at our cabin over New Years. The amount of snow this year has made Truckee a very fun place to be. Finally! I also appreciate that our beds were noticed. Our goal was to make the cabin as comfortable as possible, even when you are asleep. We would love to have you come stay again.
