  • Fun cabin stay

    4/5

    We were a party of 9 (five adults, 4 kids) and this cabin was a comfortable fit for four nights. Beds were roomy and the bunk beds in the loft have been upgraded to queen bunks, which we were pleasantly surprised to see. Plenty of extra blankets, a bookcase full of books, the garage had ping-pong tables, and there were assorted toys/boardgames available. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies, which we appreciated.

    The cabin was unfortunately not cleaned prior to our arrival, which the owner stated had not happened in the five years since he had been using this particular house cleaner person. He offered a partial refund for our trouble of having to do a load of wash and make our own beds upon arrival. Though inconvenient and unexpected, this situation did not detract from our overall vacation.

    Some things that may be helpful for others to know when booking this cabin:

    1. The water heater has a "vacation" setting, this should be dialed to the "normal" setting, so that the water hot. We were not aware of this setting the first night and had lukewarm showers.

    2. If you have a large group, ie, more than ~4 people, you may want to bring your own towels. There were only 5-6 towels available in the cabin. The linen cabinet, where presumably extra towels would be kept - is empty.

    3. Bring your own shampoo, soap, toiletries for the bathrooms.

    Would we stay here again? Yes, the location is excellent to skiing, which we had come here for.

  • Great family cabin

    5/5

    A well loved family cabin. Was great for our small family. All beds seemed relatively new which was a nice surprise. One shower sliding door needed to be fixed. Overall, very comfortable and convenient to town and resorts.

  • Could Improve, Nice Overall

    3/5

    I wish I could give this cabin 5 stars.

    Some of the cons:

    - The downstairs bathroom door did not lock which was very inconvenient, considering there was many of us. Every time someone had to use the downstairs bathroom, they had to shout it out so nobody would open the door, since it did not lock.

    - The downstairs shower only had 1 of 2 sliding doors. So, at the time of showering, you have to leave the sliding door in the middle so that not "all" the water gets outside because everything gets wet.

    - There was no shampoo, conditioner, or soap. Thankfully we brought our own but I think that should be something complimentary for the guests.

    - There was only one towel on each bathroom.

    - One roll of toilet paper on both bathrooms (downstairs and upstairs).

    - It would have been nice if they had salt for the ice in the driveway. I did not see any and the driveway gets really icy and it is also sort of in a hill, which makes it dangerous and a safety hazard.

    Pros:

    - The kitchen was very clean and nice, easy to use!

    - Although the cabin looks a lot bigger in the pictures, it is very cozy and homey so it's perfect to have a great time with close family/friends.

    - Location was perfect, 10 minutes away from downtown Truckee and about 5 minutes away from the freeway which is amazing!

    Overall, I think the cabin was great for the price. If they were to improve the things listed above, it would get 5 stars! If you do not mind any of the cons, cabin is great for the listed price!
