Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps, Self-Clean Option Available

June 2016- New paint, carpet and sheets make the cabin even more cozy!

Our small cabin is the perfect location for a family getaway or adult retreat. We are not one of the units in a large complex, but a small single dwelling in a cul-de-sac of 3 homes. Our cabin backs to a green belt with access to Tahoe Donner hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing trails. It is a short walk to the bus that takes you to the Tahoe Donner ski hill, the perfect spot for families with children learning to ski.

Worldclass mountain biking and skiing is just a short 20-30 minute drive to Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl resorts.

Home includes a bedroom with a double bed with a twin bunk downstairs, and living area with a double bed futon and cubby with a twin bed upstairs. Sheets and towels are provided and the kitchen is well stocked. The stairs can be gated for small children and there are toys for up to about age 8, push toys, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, sand toys for the beach, jogging stroller, baby backpack carrier, and more.

The cabin has WiFi and good cell coverage. Our cabin does have a TV with built in DVD/CD player, but we do not have cable- don't worry, there is so much to do you won't want to be inside watching a lot of television!

For hotel prices you get the seclusion of a single dwelling home backing a green belt and a short drive to access many great amenities. Please note that we encourage self-cleaning which makes the cabin even more affordable! If you prefer to not follow our cleaning instructions there will be a $50 fee deducted from the security deposit.

About Melissa Hodous

Our family of 4 has spent many weekends and summers enjoying the cabin!

Melissa Hodous purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Melissa Hodous chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This is a unique place in Tahoe Donner as it is the perfect size for a couple or family to spend a vacation, especially in a place so beautiful as Tahoe where you spend your days outside. The location makes it possible to relax with the family without ever leaving the property, but you could spend many weeks exploring the beauty of Tahoe.

What makes this cabin unique

It is hard to find a small, single family dwelling with a garage (access may be restricted in summer). You never know when snow will come down by the foot in Truckee, so a garage can be a great convenience.

Most Tahoe rental properties charge a cleaning fee, usually over $100. We encourage our guests to self-clean at no charge. Instructions are provided and can typically be done in less than 2 hours for one person. If you prefer, you can pay $75 and the owner will provide cleaning.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Great, wonderful, unforgettable!

Good place and for the family with kids as well. Clean, safe and comfortable. Very close to Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area. So we didn't use car just had shopping at Safeway on the first day which also is in 10-15 minutes driving from the house.

Thank You, Melissa, and we hope to come back next year!

Close to ski, but secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive, and lives nearby in case there are any problems. We enjoyed the garage as it snowed about a foot overnight. The home feels very secluded, although you are only a few minutes from Truckee. It was easy to get to both Sacremento and Reno from here for sightseeing. We skied Sqauw and Northstar, both were easy to get to.

It was clean and well set up. The kitchen worked as we like to cook our breakfast and dinner to offset the cost of lunch on the ski hill.

I would absolutely stay here again!

Holy Snow!

  • 5 of 5

Our fifth year at the Hodous Hideway presented us with snow accumulation unseen since 2011, 100 inches reported in some locations. The xcountry conditions (snow quality, terrain etc...) were some of the best we've ever experienced at Tahoe Donner. The cozy cabin is a perfect retreat for our little family, giving us access to everything we love to do right outside our door. Melissa, the owner, is so incredibly nice and helpful with everything.

Affordable and cozy place in Truckee

  • 5 of 5

Overall had a great experience staying at this home. Everything was clean and working properly, and the layout of the home was very cozy and comfortable. The home slept 4 people comfortably and was a good value. I also liked how we were given the option to self-clean rather than pay an additional cleaning fee. I would highly recommend staying here, and I hope to be back again.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd time here. I made sure I booked my stay 3 months early. The place is small and cozy. Perfect for couples and small groups. It has everything you need. Fully furnished. The backyard is the whole mountain. So much room to play and build snowmen. The price is also very reasonable for Truckee. I totally recommend this place. Plan to come next year!
