About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Come enjoy a getaway at our family's cozy hillside cabin. Located on a quiet street within walking distance of Tahoe Donner's downhill ski area, our home comfortably sleeps six.

Relax by the gas stove in the living room while watching the HDTV, or enjoy a book while lounging in the cozy leather recliner. Your feet will stay toasty warm on the heated slate floors as you prepare your meals in our fully-stocked kitchen.

The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the second floor off a single hallway. The master bedroom offers a private deck, queen-size bed, and en suite bathroom with double sinks and a shower. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed and lovely views of the wooded hillside. The third bedroom has twin bunk beds and its own private deck. A second bathroom provides a shower and bath tub for soaking after a long day of fun. A washer and dryer are available in a closeted area at the top of the stairs.

Large windows and sliding doors throughout our home allow you to enjoy plenty of sunshine and the pine forest outside.

Our cabin is located in the Tahoe Donner resort community. Just 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Donner is a private homeowners' association with a wide variety of facilities for its members and guests. Guests may enjoy the following amenities for a nominal fee using the guest passes provided with the home:

* Trout Creek Recreation Center (weight and cardio rooms, steam room, recreational pool, adult lap pool, and more)

* Tahoe Donner Tennis Center

* Beach Club Marina at Donner Lake

* Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area

* Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area

* Snowplay Area

* Tahoe Donner Golf Course

* Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center

NOTE: Our cabin is located on a hillside off a private road with access from two directions. The road is plowed during the winter months, but we strongly recommend 4WD, AWD, or chains for access.

Parking is limited to 2 vehicles, one inside the garage and one in the driveway. The clearance for the garage door is 6 feet, 6 inches. Vehicles are to be parked in designated parking areas only. Parking is not allowed on the access road.

About Tina Lucas

Our family of five lives in El Dorado County.

Tina Lucas purchased this house in 2014

Why Tina Lucas chose Truckee

We chose Tahoe Donner because of the community's numerous amenities and its proximity to Lake Tahoe and various ski resorts. We love that the door-to-door drive time from our home to the cabin is under two hours!

The Cozy Hillside was a great spot for our family (6 adults). It was very comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4 days. The cabin was in a close location to pool and recreation, while also sitting in the woods with some nice privacy. We enjoyed the deck, spending each evening there, took walks every morning, and did a long hike up the ski trail! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Very cozy

  • 4 of 5

This property is small but really clean and cozy for one (or maybe two) families. Tucked away on a quiet road but close to everything.

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

This house is spotless, nicely decorated and easy to find. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and is very thoughtfully organized for visitors. So close to the downhill ski area, it's a 1 minute drive. The snow was piled so high after this crazy season that we could only see out the upper floor windows, our son said it was like being in an igloo. Great bedrooms, comfy beds, lots of storage space in dressers. The foosball table was lots of fun as were the games and movies. Definitely the best place we've rented!
