This is a great house -- comfortable, clean, and gorgeous. There are three main bedrooms each on its own level with a full bathroom. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked with cooking gear. We've stayed here now twice in the early spring and once in the summer, and every time has been great. The kids had a ton of fun playing outside in the snow all day every day when there was still snow on the ground. And when we came back for a summer trip, we made the short trips to Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe to splash around and play on the beaches. It's short trip to town too, if you need to pick anything up. We'll definitely be going back again!
This house is in a great location! It's super close to a bunch of ski resorts. We were there during a snow storm and the streets were well plowed. Everything was very easy to get to. The house itself is super comfortable. The open floor plan is great for a group gathering. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need and having a washer and dryer was awesome since we were there with four kids who kept venturing out in the snow. The house is super clean and feels brand new. The owners are wonderful and very responsive. They wanted nothing more than for us to enjoy our stay and take advantage of everything the house and the area offers. We can't wait to go again! Love this place!
This cabin was perfectly located. Close to downtown Truckee and easy access to the ski resorts. We had plenty of room for the entire family. The house itself was beautiful....we didn't want to leave! Can't wait to stay there again this summer!
My family has stayed here two times now - once in late March with tons of snow and, more recently, once in late May when the snow was on its way out so we've seen the whole spectrum.
First, I love the location of the cabin. It's so close to Donner Lake with all its hiking trails we made ample use of. Even during Memorial Day weekend, those areas weren't overrun with people like they are in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Wonder how long until people figure this out. We chose to ski at North Star which was about a 15 minute drive away so no issue there. Safeway was about 8 minutes away.
As for the house itself, there was plenty of room for the seven of us (four adults, three kids). The main area has high ceilings and a neat loft where you can stash the kids to watch a show on the big screen why the adults play cards in the main room. The furnishings are intriguing (lots of native-american adornments) and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed. The bedrooms had comfortable beds and each had an attached bathroom.
Ok, I'll admit it. Internet speeds matter to me. This place clocked in at 100mb/sec which is ridiculously fast. Faster then I get at home! Getting the little amount of work done and streaming Netflix and such were a breeze.
Bottom line, I expect our family will be heading back sooner or later :)
