  • Central location, well-stocked kitchen, delightful owners


    Stayed here in March so we could snowboard at Sugar Bowl, which is just 10 minutes to the west. There were only four of us, but the place could easily fit a large family -- lots of places to sleep. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, and when we wanted to go out for a meal, Truckee was only 10 minutes to the east. The owner gave us her cell phone number upon arrival, and we ended up using it when we couldn't find the remote for the DVD player. (They have a solid collection of movies also.) Her husband called right back, and we sorted it out. Next time we come to Tahoe to play, this is the place we'll book if it's open.

  • Great Stay at a Cozy Cabin


    This cabin is newly remodeled and really nice. Our children are just learning to ski this year so we have Boreal season passes. We stayed two nights and it was convenient to only be a ten minute drive away. We ate at The Pub at Donner Lake twice and the food was great. It snowed quite a bit on our last day but it wasn’t an issue since the roads and driveway were plowed. We had a wonderful stay and would use this cabin again! 5 Stars :)

  • Great Tahoe Adventure for Family Reunion


    We are return customers to this lovely, spacious home, where we gather grandparents, parents and grandkids, for a grand old time. Home is very comfortable and kid-friendly (they even supply a baby gate for the stairs, which came in handy for the one-year old).We enjoyed the comfortable living room area, large dining table, grill on the porch, spacious kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils, pots, etc., the nearby park at the lake with kid friendly jungle gyms and the nearby Donner Ski Ranch. Owner keeps the driveway well snowplowed too and the place was clean, the towels fluffy, everything was great.

    The house was fine. Downstairs was freezing! They are building a deck and the 6 feet from the parking pad to the front door was ridiculous. It was icy, muddy and full of holes which made it quite treacherous to navigate, especially at night. The owner’s response was uncaring. I would never rent this property again.

    Manager's Response:

    Jane, the homeowners were surprised to read your review, as they are accustomed to providing 5-star experiences, and would like to clarify the following:

    - As our property is located in Lake Tahoe, the entire town had record-breaking snow levels during your stay causing a peak in melting. We try our best to accommodate and provide a great environment for guests, but sometimes external factors such as inclement weather are simply out of our control. We sincerely apologize your experience was inconvenienced by the mud.

    - We appreciate your suggestions regarding the conditions of the mud when we spoke after your stay and have since laid down material to block the mud formed from the melt as we are no longer expecting snow. We always strive to be professional and respectful in our communications with guests, but we apologize if our tone came off wrong.

    While we do regret our home was not up to your expectations, we wish you would have reached out during your stay to address any issues, as we do all we can to make our home the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to host you again!
