Cozy and Convenient Cabin!
We arrived in the evening to a snow-covered postcard scene. The cabin (indeed the entire neighborhood) blanketed with fresh snow. Just beautiful! Finding the cabin was a little tricky as it is set back from the road and in the dark, with snow covering everything we missed it at first (and then a few more times during our visit - GPS grr!). Once inside the handy combination lock (no keys to misplace) we found a comfy living room with a gas-powered stove that heated things up quickly. The double-pane windows kept it warm - outside temperatures in the 20’s were no problem at all. The hot water is HOT in the bathroom and kitchen and there were plenty of plates/silverware/cooking items for a family to be comfortable. The blankets (especially in the kids’ bedroom) were super fluffy and warm and the place was clean and welcoming with a bottle of wine to greet us too. Details like plenty of current and classic movie DVDs, toys and games were on hand and frankly the ONLY quibble I can make is that a lightbulb was burned out (and easily swapped with a new one in the cabinet). If you’re planning on skiing at Tahoe Donner get ready for a 5-minute drive. ;) Honestly, it’s exactly what I hoped for - location, comfort and value all in one. The owners were a breeze to deal with and we’ll be back. Don’t you DARE book our ski date(s) next season, we have dibs! :D Thanks!
