Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic stay. Your house was a home from home with everything we could have possibly needed. Its all the little touches that make the difference, the extras in the kitchen, the firepit was a hit with all and we spotted pine martins, deer at breakfast time just walking past the window and we even turned into amateur birdwatchers thanks to the many books you provided which helped us to find out the names but sadly no bears although we took that to be a bonus. Went swimming in Lake Tahoe at one of the secret coves, hiked up Eagle Falls, walked round Spooner Lake, cycled round Donner Lake which was incredibly good value thanks to your residence card. We shall tell our friends and hopefuly you will get more visitors from Scotland. Thanks for all you help and advice along the way it was very much appreciated. Thanks again.

Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5
5 of us stayed in this house and we all enjoyed it. It was just comfortable staying this house! We enjoyed the backyard facing lots of trees. It was very relaxing. The house is locating close to downtown Truckee, coyote moon golf course, and other recreational areas such as North Star. We definitely recommend this house to everyone who wants to have relaxing time in a beautiful backyard and feel of home away from home!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay in the lake Tahoe area! We loved it. It was clean, the hot tub was awesome, and the beds were comfy! The owners were easy to deal with and extremely helpful. We will go back to stay here again! It is in a great location. Truckee is fun and has everything you need, and there are lots of ski areas close by. Its not far from Tahoe City either. We like it better than the south shore area of Tahoe! It's a gorgeous quiet getaway with beautiful trees to see in the backyard. Can't wait to go back!

Truly satisfied

  • 5 of 5
All I have to say is we cannot wait to go back! We travel often and I have never felt so compelled to write a review. Everything from booking, to check out was wonderful and done with ease. Everything was very clean. The towels were fresh, soft and had a clean sent. We couldn't have asked for a more organized and accommodating kitchen. From the simplest kitchen tool, like a peeler, to a panini press, we were taken care of. They even had extra paper towel, toilet paper, aluminum foil, sandwich baggies and more. The hot tub was clean. The yard was beautiful. The beds were super comfortable. Judy was extremely sweet and we felt that she would be available if we needed anything. They even had a book filled with helpful information alphabetized. The best part about the book was that the opening was filled with a bit of humor. If you go... you will read about apples and know what I mean. The most difficult part about writing this review, is that I fear you may book your stay on a date that I want to come back.

All that it is described to be and more!

  • 5 of 5
My family, friends and I had a very comfortable stay at Pine Marten Lodge. The cabin is exactly as pictured. It had all the amenities you may need to feel right at home. Extremely comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture everywhere! From the living room, dining room and outside. We had such a great time lounging in this home. We took advantage of every inch of it!

It's summer, so we spent a lot of time in the backyard. Loved the hot tub, grill, bonfire pit and hammock. Truly a great stay in the great outdoors. We most definitely will be reserving this home again!

The owner, Judy, is super easy to work with. Very prompt with correspondence. This was my first time using VRBO and I'm impressed with the ease of making reservations, communicating directly with the owner and the check-in/check-out process.

Thank you Judy!! We appreciate sharing your home with us!

so lovely, restful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a lovely, restful stay at your beautiful home. You have everything so well stocked, from soft towels to hair dryers to basics in the kitchen, so it truly felt like we were staying as guests in someone's home. The master bed is so wonderfully soft and comfortable and I am extremely picky about this!

The first day out, as we were hiking in a remote area some 20 miles away, we discovered we had lost the house key. I found a place to email the owner, who promptly sent me the number for the property manager. Upon return to the house, we found a newly replaced house key in the lock box. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will certainly return!

Best of the best. Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5
First off, owners are very friendly and helpful. They assured us that our stay would be great and they indeed were right. The cabin itself is absolutely beautiful. Feels like home away from home, yet it still has that cabin feel to it that everyone wants out of a Truckee/Tahoe trip!

They had extras of everything! Plates, spoons, forks, towels, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. Everything was clean upon arrival. The beds, sofas and chairs are all comfortable. The hot tub worked perfectly. The grill cooked our steaks very well (or rare depending on how you like it). Location is great! Truckee is a beautiful town itself with a lot of options of things to do. If Truckee isn't your cup of tea, Tahoe is just a short drive away!

I cannot stress how perfect our weekend was and a great deal of it is because of this cabin. Without a doubt, I would stay here again.

Notes:

  • Pine Marten Lodge is also a great place to just enjoy nature from home. The backyard deck steps down to a large paved patio surrounded by towering pines to really be at one with nature - and a flagstone path leads to a fire pit for chilly nights. There's also a brand new six burner grill for all your outdoor cooking! There are two charming guest bedrooms on the first level - one with a queen bed, and one with a full over queen handmade log bunk bed (making it equally cozy for kids OR couples). On the upper level you will find the loft/playroom - with a queen sleeper sofa and twin daybed, 32" TV, Xbox 360 with Kinect, and headphones for the kids - so they can play/watch movies quietly! The loft also opens to another deck to enjoy the view. And finally, upstairs you will find the master suite - with brand-new pillowtop king bed, ensuite bathroom with his and hers sinks, and a 26" flat-screen tv with DVD player. We’ve supplied our cabin with families in mind, with books, toys, DVDs, plenty of gourmet kitchen tools, games for all ages, a yoga mat, sleds, baby necessities and more! Rental includes free WiFi/internet. You’ll find more than everything you need at our Tahoe Donner home, both inside and out, to make your stay a magical one.
