About Kathryn Howard
After years of enjoying all this mountain community has to offer, my husband and I splurged on our dream and purchased this home. We love the fact that its on a quiet inside street and only a few houses from a hiking trail head. It's rare when you don't see some wild life in the evenings heading down to the wetlands for a drink in the evenings. We've watched young fawns grow into their antlers, beavers coming out at dusk to build, the raccoons scamper, and even a bear or two lumbering, not to mention all the chipmunks, jays and woodpeckers! Skiing, golfing, swimming and more are within minutes of the house. And trails to hike or bike are numerous. When we feel like taking it easy, the hammock out back is where we 'hang'. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.) All, in all, if you enjoy the quiet of the hill, yet want plenty to do this is 'THE' place! We stay here often, so we have added many amenities over the years. When ever we have one of those moments that say to you..'Hey, you know what we should get for the cabin?' We go out and get it, so you won't be looking for this or that to make your stay comfortable and homey.
Kathryn Howard purchased this Cabin in 2009

4 weeks at Tahoe Donner
The property was great, just as advertised. Excellent space for accommodating 3 generations and a dog comfortably. Property manager was helpful and kind. Wonderful quiet street. Brought my horse up and was very happy with the equestrian center. Beautiful trails for hiking and riding. We’ll definitely do this again! Thank you!
Terrific place, well equipped
Had a very nice stay, lots of stuff to do, games, hot tub, etc.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. True, there is so much to do in Tahoe Donner and the area. (Editorial note: Please know that our guests enjoyed the hot tub at the community center, and not on our property.)
Our family reunion went perfect and the cabin was perfect!
So glad your family reunion went well and that the cabin suited your needs. It's fun to be able to share with others what we feel blessed to have in our family.
Spacious cabin, great location
We had a great stay here and everyone had plenty of space. Loved the location in winter- skied Donner and used the guest passes for the reccenter. Beds were super comfy and downstairs room and space for kids was great to have. Only reason for 4 stars was because we couldn’t get hot water for showers and the kitchen needed a few more upgrades. Also- pack body soap/shampoo, any spices and oils needed for kitchen as these aren’t provided. But overall, Kathy was a great host and has the cabin set up perfectly for guests.
Thanks for your review Stephanie. Can you share what additional amendments you would like to see provided in the kitchen? There is a 50 gallon hot water tank in the house, sorry you did not find it adequate to meet your hot water needs in a timely fashion.
Wonderful and it snowed!
There were 11 family members who decided to get away for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Kids, moms and dads, a set of grandparents and two dogs. The youngest celebrated his 9th birthday on Turkey Day. The fact that it snowed during the night was unbelievable. We woke to the sound of snowplows in the area. The house was warm and inviting. Wonderful views of snow filled trees. Everything we needed to cook our turkey dinner was in the kitchen (from coffee pot to plates, coffee cups to bowls, silverware, you name it!) and the number of beds and bathrooms was just right. We would love to visit again.
This house is made for making memories; and glad we could help contribute to yours and your family! ( Be sure to tell the 'birthday boy' 'Happy Birthday' from us too!)
Would love to have you back whenever you want to come to the mountains.

Absolute amazing cabin!
My family of 8 (plus two puppies) stayed over the 4th of July week and had a blast! The cabin is HUGE! Everything about it was great. The kitchen , the TVs, the couches and beds, and the hammocks!! I will definitely be coming back to this little slice of heaven in the best town in California, Truckee!!
Thanks Timothy for your kind words. We LOVE our cabin too and it's a pleasure that we had the opportunity to share it with you and your family. Now that you know about it, come back and visit us often. The door is always open...
There is so much to do in the Truckee Tahoe Donner area year round.
Any season offers the best of the great outdoors.
For winter play the house is within minutes of some of the best ski
and snowboard areas - Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl,
Northstar, and Tahoe Donner. In addition to the Tahoe Donner ski area, for non-skiers/boarders Tahoe Donner has a snow play area, (within walking distance of the house) that offers tubing and sledding. And don't forget about trying the trails for snow-shoeing too! Want to warm up...try a winter swim in the outdoor pool at 80' water temp, or a spa at 95'...regardless of the outside temperatures!
Be sure to check out all the Tahoe Donner amenities at the Tahoe Donner website.
In summer you can play tennis, bike, hike, fish, canoe, kayak, sail, or swim in one of Tahoe Donners three pools or take a beach day at Tahoe or Donner lake, golf at one of the areas many courses, take a trail ride on horseback, or just bask in the sun off the back or front deck and bird watch! Still wanting for more? How about a work out in the gym, an afternoon sauna, a relaxing massage, or a trip to the spa? One thing is for sure, you'll have plenty to do and lots of choices too!
Historic downtown Truckee is a cute little town full of restaurants and
shops. Reno is just 40 minutes away with an international airport
and famous casinos. Beautiful Lake Tahoe is a 30 minute drive.
