About the property

Explore Tahoe National Forest and all its wonders from ‘Golden Bears Lair,’ a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom Truckee vacation rental house. With 2,000 square feet of rustic living space, this property invites 12 guests to a semi-secluded, Sierra Nevada retreat. Get in touch with nature from the home’s expansive deck overlooking the woods, or venture out onto the nearby hiking trails for a closer look. Aside from hiking, this property also offers easy access to golfing, fishing, skiing and so much more!


Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed, Twin Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 4: Full Futon Bed, 2 Twin-over-Twin Bunk Beds |

Outfitted with mountain-themed decor, wood-paneled ceilings and comfortable furnishings, the home’s interior embodies a warm, cabin-like feel for a comfortable stay in the mountains.

Prepare a hearty breakfast and hiking snacks for the long day ahead in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with modern appliances and natural wood elements. Take a seat at the eating counter to dig in or gather your loved ones around the dining table for a more formal meal.

The free-flowing layout seamlessly connects the kitchen to the living area, which is highlighted by 3 plush sofas, a pellet stove and a flat-screen cable TV. After a long day spent outdoors, get a fire started in the pellet stove before curling up in front of the TV and settling in for a movie.

On a warm night, move the festivities outside onto the expansive deck, situated below a canopy of towering trees. Revel in the fresh scent of pine and serene forest views as your group shares highlights from the day’s lake adventure.

Retreat to the bedrooms once the evening’s entertainment has come to a close. All 4 bedrooms offer plush beds for comfortable slumbers and plenty of storage for all your gear.


Start your vacation off with a trip to Donner Lake, deemed “The Jewel of the Northern Sierra.” Here, you can enjoy a lakeside picnic or climb to the top of Donner Peak for remarkable views from above.

Truckee and its surrounding areas transform into a true winter wonderland come the colder season. Check out Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort, Squaw Valley Ski Resort or Northstar California for world-class skiing and other seasonal sports.

While the golfers in your group play a few holes at Tahoe Donner Golf Course or Coyote Moon Golf Course, you and the rest of the pack can explore Historic Downtown Truckee, where you’ll find unique shops and museums, along with a plethora of dining options.

Begin your action-packed day with a filling breakfast at Squeeze In, while for a night out enjoy live music at Moody's or visit Tacos Jalisco for some authentic Mexican cuisine. The Lodge at Tahoe Donner offers great food and drinks for happy hour all week long!

Be sure to take advantage of the various community amenities that will be available to you during your stay. The community offers an equestrian center for horseback riding during summer and cross country skiing in the winter months. You can always relax and spend balmy days cooling off by the pool, or soak in the hot tub to keep warm in the colder months.

Very cozy weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a family weekend getaway and were pleasantly surprised!

It's in a a beautiful area, and the view from the deck was amazing.

The inside is a little older, but extremely cozy. They had a closet full of games for the kids and everything we needed in the kitchen.

Would definitely recommend.

Great and homey but....

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience minus a few items that should be noted:

1. There was animal hair on the sofas and dried poop droppings in back of chair near the front entrance.

2. After following provided step by step instructions for the pellet stove, we were not able to get it to work but we managed with the central heating.

Overall a great cabin, fully stocked with all that is needed while away from home.

Thank you
