The space

Our spacious 1400 sq cabin, set amongst the trees, in Tahoe Donner features 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bath. Two of the bedrooms include queen size beds and the center bedroom two twin beds. The sofa in the living area can also be converted into a bed, making the cabin ideal for an extended family get together, or a group vacation.

The living room is always sunny and warm, even in the middle of winter; perfect place to curl up with a book and hot coco. Or if you are not tired from a day spent outdoors, you can use the entertainment system in the house, including wifi, a 50” TV, sound system and Apple TV.

The kitchen is fully stocked to please even the gourmet chef, all the pots and pans, and flatware and spices that you could want. Also including microwave, bread maker, blenders, etc.

The cabin is centrally located in the Tahoe Donner subdivision in Truckee amidst mountains, lakes, alpines and meadows. The cabin is the perfect base from which to enjoy world-class skiing and snowboarding in winter. Less than 15 miles away from Squaw Valley, Northstar and Alpine Meadows, less than 10 miles away from Sugar Bowl and Boreal, and less than 5 miles away from the Tahoe Donner Ski Area, which includes over 100 km of cross-country trails.

We stayed 3 nights at Yenyi's rental and truly enjoyed the home! There were two families and a total of 3 kids under age 3.5 staying in the home. Kid friendly home with baby gate, children's dinnerware and high chair available for use. Unlike some of the other reviews, we felt the home was clean and wasn't too old. It's not luxurious like some other home rentals for way more money per night, but instead affordable with a nice open floorplan concept and all appliances that work (again, not fully updated and top of the line, but does the job). The layout of the home consists of entryway into landing. ~5 steps to go up to kitchen, dining, living, 0.5 bath. From the landing (full bath), ~7 steps down to go down to 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. The owner is thoughtful and stocks plenty of extra paper towels, tissue paper, kleenex, and cooking supplies. Location is 10 minute drive to Donner Lake and 20 minute drive to Lake Tahoe. Owner was communicative throughout the rental process and we look forward to another stay soon.

Hi Diana, Great to hear that you had a great stay at our place. We also have 2 little ones, so love the fact that we can put the kids to bed downstairs, and enjoy the rest of the evening with friends upstairs in the living area. Hope you stay with us again. Best, Yenyi

Place is old but cozy. Good value for the price. Has most amenities in the house. Easy access to Truckee downtown.

We had a nice time at Yenyi's place. The house is small but does have 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths so you could sleep a lot of people here. The house is a bit dated. The house had obviously been cleaned but not thoroughly, we found multiple pieces of food and even a sewing needle on the ground. It's in a nice area with walking/hiking trails accessible from out the door. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to Donner Lake or downtown Truckee. This place would make a good home base for a friend's ski weekend but not as nice of an option if you planned to spend a lot of time at the house. Yenyi made it really easy to check in and out.

Yenyi's "Cabin In The Woods" is a delightful place to spend some time with family. It is very comfortable and she is was very responsive to the few questions we had. With the guest passes we had access to the splendid recreational facilities at Tahoe Donner. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly and had easy access to I-80 and Highway 89, providing quick access to the whole area and its interesting recreational opportunities.

Communication was great, everything was there and layed out as it was stated upfront. They even had a nice bbq we were able to use for a family dinner! Nice place, hassle free and worth the money.

Our cabin in the woods is a dream come true. Avid outdoors people, my husband and I are up in Truckee often. In winter, we are skiing in the near by resorts, and snow shoeing nearby. Our favorite snowshoe trail takes us to the top of donner summit. In summer, we love hiking and climbing. Which are easily accessible from the cabin.

We love coming to the cabin, and as such, you will find it well stocked as a second home. From the electronics system to the well stocked kitchen. We hope that you enjoy the cabin as much as us, and treat it as you second home as well. If you have suggestions on what could make you stay more enjoyable, please let us know.
