We love our cabin and relaxing with the fireplace and forest view. It's a short walk to the Trout Creek rec center (w/year round pools, spas, fitness, golf, basketball, playground, etc) and the only local store as well as the Lodge (bar/restaurant). Snow play area is a short walk or drive. You can use the equestrian center and the private Donner Lake beach (with water sport rentals and grill). Everything you need is right here... This is a fantastic, relaxing vacation for the whole family!
“This home is definitely hygge! We all *loved* the decor... vaulted wood ceilings, rustic-chic shelving and tables made of black metal and wood, very sleek lighting & ceiling fan, and a lovely view of endless evergreens. I came with my family and my brother’s family, so there were eight of us including four teens. It was a little tight for that many people (especially with just 1 bathroom downstairs; the other bathroom is in the master bedroom), just as Allison warned us it might be. The bathrooms and parts of the kitchen have not yet been updated, but if they will be anything like the rest of the house, they will be amazing. The master bed was comfy, but there was a bit of a valley in the mattress. It didn’t bother me much, but could bother others. The master bedroom is a large loft area. It’s spacious and private, being the only room upstairs, but it is open to the common room below, so we brought earplugs. The kids’ room had a single bed on the top bunk, a full bed on the bottom bunk, and a twin trundle bed that pulled out from under the full-sized bed. So this room could certainly have four people in it, but they would need to be comfortable with that sleeping arrangement. A 2-minute drive away was the rec center which was still closed due to COVID-19, but they have been hiring and training staff so hopefully will open soon. Adjacent to the rec center is the wonderful little Z Market with delicious and freshly made sandwiches (BBQ, French dip, chipotle pesto turkey, etc) and essential groceries. The cute downtown area was completely open, with mandatory masks inside and hand sanitizer on the sidewalks and inside many of the shops. Allison was a wonderful and responsive host. Her home was beautiful, and the price was reasonable.”
ON THE TRUCKEE RIVER right in the historic downtown area, our little studio is a 2 block walk to restaurants AND shopping. You’ll love our place because you can sit inside or in bed and watch the river flow by. It's peaceful place, new and modern, private and the middle of it all. It's not just a place to stay, it's a destination. QUIET people only please. We have a high end sofa sleeper on the main floor + 2 twin beds in the loft up a ladder. It's a tight fit for 4 but doable if you're close.
“What's not to like about this hidden gem? Walk out the back slider and down to the River, then relax in the chairs provided. Walk East down the street, cross the foot bridge and you're on the Truckee Legacy Trail. Take it all of the way to Glenshire if you want. Walk West for a few minutes and your in downtown Truckee, with all of the pubs, restaurants, coffee houses and shops. If you're looking clean, quaint and best of all...quiet, this is the place for you. If you're old like us, this is perfect. If you haven't grown up yet, then party in town all you want, walk back (if you can) and have a very peaceful and restful night.”
Wonderful mountain cabin for a family vacation or a getaway with friends. Lovely, peaceful location surrounded by nature. Fabulous deck to enjoy BBQs and friends. Open floor plan to relax and socialize and make for a perfect vacation.
“Nice clean and functional house tucked in a great neighborhood (Tahoe Donner development). Everything worked well. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen equipped enough for light cooking. Garage big enough and cleared out enough for a car to park within. Check in a bit confusing with respect to the access code so if you can't find it in the welcome emails, then reach out to Sarah early to get clarification on that. Host is really nice and helpful. I accidentally left a ski bag in the garage after checkout and she was very gracious about allowing me re-access to pick it up after a day of skiing.”
