About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 14

Have your next big getaway at the Schussing Family Cabin in Truckee. This expansive Tahoe Donner vacation rental has a plethora of space on all three floors for up to 14 guests.

In addition to the beautiful fireplace, guests have access to the Trout Creek Recreation Center and Northwoods Clubhouse nearby. This home isn't far from Lake Tahoe skiing, water sports, and hiking.

Nestled among quiet pines, this massive three-story lodge welcomes you on the main floor with comfortable couches around a cable-ready flatscreen TV and wood-burning fireplace. Steal a nap on the burgundy leather sofa or browse online while the sunlight pours in through the abundant windows.

In the fully-stocked kitchen, guests can interact with those in the living room while prepping breakfast smoothies or fresh coffee. Snack at the breakfast bar or share a meal at the dining table - then toss everything in the dishwasher!

With bedrooms on all three floors, there's plenty of room for everyone to sleep soundly. The bottom floor includes two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and a twin bed. The middle level also has two bedrooms - both with queen beds. The top floor boasts a spacious L-shaped loft and the master suite with a queen bed, futon, and private bathroom.

Aside from the two full bathrooms in two of the bedrooms, there are two more bathrooms for a total of four accessible from anywhere in the house. Plus, there’s also a washer and dryer.

There’s no shortage of activities in the Lake Tahoe area. About five-and-a-half miles away is Truckee, known for shopping and historical points of interest. Guests have access to the Tahoe Donner Trout Creek Recreation Center (less than two miles away) and the Northwoods Clubhouse (only one mile away) where you can use the pool, sauna, fitness center, hot tubs, and more. The Beach Club Marina (three-and-a-half miles away) offers stand-up paddle board rentals, too. And, just over five miles away is the public Tahoe Donner Ski Area for winter adventures.

Reconnect with family and friends at this luxurious North Lake Tahoe vacation rental this season!

Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

Great cabin for a large family!

  • 4 of 5

This 3 story home was wonderful! My family stayed here for a week over spring break. We have rented several homes over the years, and this home has been the nicest so far. I have a large family (13 total), and everyone had their own bed, plus there was room for more. The loft is huge, and my grandkids loved playing up there! The kitchen is big and spacey, which was great, because we cooked every day. However, there were a few things that could be added, such as kitchen towels, hot pads, new sheet pans, and new broom. The ice maker worked, but it would not dispense the ice. However, we made it all work! We had a problem with the internet, and the rental company came out the next day to install a new router. They were quick to help! Overall, this is a great place, and we hope to rent it again next spring break!

Wonderful house for multi-family groups

  • 4 of 5

This spacious home was perfect for our group of 3 families, with kids aged 11-14. With 2 bedrooms having their own bathrooms, and 2 other bathrooms near the other 3 rooms, we had plenty of space to stretch out. The kids enjoyed the foosball table and sharing the rooms on the bottom level, while the adults relaxed in the comfy living room/kitchen area. The only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars is the kitchen felt a bit sparsely stocked with cooking utensils and appliances.
