Breathtaking!!!


Pictures don't do this house justice!!! We had 8 adults and a little one and there was more than enough room for everyone for sleeping as well as to hang out! Amazing views from hot tub and sunrises from all rooms! Snow was fantastic! Highly recommend!

Great Escape!


Incredible views, at the top of the mountain. House has it all, chefs kitchen, entertainment, hot tub, steam shower, dry sauna, massage chair, fireplaces and more. Rod was very responsive as well for a couple of questions!

LOTS of SNOW!!!


We had an amazing time!!! The owner was always available and helpful and the home was well equipped. Amazing views from every room, snow everywhere, sleds on the front porch to use, and plenty of room to spread out for a large group. We got snowed in because of a bad storm but still had a great time with movies to watch, games, hot tub, dry sauna, and steam shower! Gorgeous house that is very well maintained. Neighbor has a snowplow and came by early every morning to clear driveway. Would highly recommend this home! We would definitely reserve it for our next visit! Oh, the sunrise from the master bedroom is Spectacular!

The Log House Truckee


Our family had a great stay at the Log House. The views are beautiful, and the house is spacious and nicely furnished. There are LOTS of stairs from the street level down to the house, and many more stairs to access the 3 levels of the home, so those with difficulty with stairs at altitude or very small children should take note. There are comfortable beds in 3 bedrooms for 6 guests (master with a king and 2 bedrooms on the lower level with double/queen beds)...the cabin description says up to 12 can sleep in the cabin, but if you have a group this large 6 of 12 guests will be sleeping on couches or air mattresses in the common areas. The cabin has 3 separate common areas: living/dining area on the main floor, big family room on the lower level, and a smaller loft with a couch and two chairs and the only television in the home. There's a great hot tub on the main deck with views. One final note--none of the 3 bedrooms has window coverings. The full moon during our stay shone brightly, as did the sunshine early and late. Hard to complain considering the beautiful views, but our group had trouble sleeping past the 5 am sunrise!

Awesome Log Home


If you want to have a complete resort like vacation spot, without the cost of the Ritz, this is your choice. We have rentals on VRBO and this is how we run our properties. Small details make all the difference. If you're going to Tahoe area, you have to check this place out.

Awe Inspiring Architecture


Love the way giant wood beams were used to build this large airy house. Everything is new, great kitchen w commercial stove and disco lit hot tub w massage features. This feels like a very high end house as opposed to an affordable rental. Location is great, donner ski park is best place for young kids. Very mellow and enjoyable rentable for our young family.

Couldn't of been happier!!


This home is stunning! The only way our trip to Truckee could have been better is if we { 6 people } stayed longer. The views from the deck were amazing. The sunrise and sunset especially. We did a lot of sightseeing and found the location a great starting point. The owner was great to deal with. We had no issues. We had flown in from a stay in Vegas and found it easier checking in and out of the Log house than the hotel we stayed at. Seeing the deer each morning and evening from the deck was a bonus. The house itself is beautiful. The craftsmanship fantastic. There are a lot of nice homes around the area but with every thing this house has to offer you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay. Our group is already talking about returning and I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who is looking to stay in that area.

Spectacular House


We just returned from 8 nights in this amazing log cabin. The cabin was very clean upon arrival. The cabin is beautiful with amazing views. We saw deer from the deck every day. The size of the logs used in the construction of the cabin are what makes this place so unique. The furnishings are very nice and comfortable. We were all most impressed with the lighting in each room. The sauna and steam shower were very popular with our guests. The owner (Rod) was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone.

Antoinette Krohn


We really enjoyed our vacation in Truckee. The log house was absolutely beautiful. We could not get over the amount of work that must of went into the construction of the home. The views were gorgeous. It was calming to stand on the balconies and look at the trees and watch the deer, rabbits and chipmunks that were literally just a few yards away. We would definitely recommend this home to friends. The one suggestion we have is possibly adding curtains or shades to the downstairs bedrooms for privacy and also to keep the rooms cooler during the summer.

The perfect Tahoe getaway!!!!


By far the best house me and my friends have stayed at! We were snowed in for a few days and we couldn't have been happier. Breathtaking views to wake up to with a hot tub and sauna to finish off the day after snowboarding, couldn't be better! The owner is extremely helpful and made sure everything went well. House is roomy and clean. Couldn't have had a better trip!! Highly recommended to anyone who is interested!

Breathtaking, immaculate, super helpful owner


My family of three kids (age 5-10), my husband, and I enjoyed 5 days at the Log House over ski week. The listing was spot on and we really appreciated a detailed PDF of instructions prior to arrival so we knew what coffee to bring, if we should bring DVDs etc. The owner is super helpful and gave us pointers on where to do ski school with my kids etc. We communicated by email several times prior to our arrival and he responded right away. Once we arrived the house was immaculate. Bedrooms spacious, clean, comfy beds (we are very picky). I enjoyed cooking family meals in the state of the art kitchen. The hot tub with views of the mountains and slopes is dreamy! I also really enjoyed some exercise on the treadmill in the mornings after dropping kids off at ski school. We had friends over for card games, had long luxurious breakfasts over coffee. Worth the splurge!

Lovely Log Home


We chose the Log House for our family reunion vacation. With ten adults to accommodate, we needed a home with lots of space, and this home did not disappoint. The house is beautifully furnished and maintained, with fabulous views from the deck. We enjoyed the hot tub, and the sauna, as well as all of the other amenities of the property. We were just a short drive from horseback riding, white water rafting, and parasailing. Hiking trails were a short walk away. We also visited Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. Rod was very helpful and pleasant, making this a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this property, and hope to stay there again in the future.

Lots of space, well designed, beautiful views!


The house is far up the slope of a mountainside in Truckee, and provided an excellent view of the valley around Donner Lake. The view from the hottub at night was particularly spectacular - the starry sky was easy to see with few city lights to impede it and it felt like we were sitting right at the edge of a cliff. The house is well appointed with high quality fixtures and design, and the big logs that make up the house are very impressive. Our party was relatively large - 4 couples with small kids and there was plenty of room for everyone to either hang together in the big main room or go off on our own for privacy in either the upstairs or downstairs. The owner provided excellent information on the house before our visit, was flexible with our arrangements, and was responsive to our many questions beforehand. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a family or friends vacation in the Tahoe area.

Perfect end of the summer getaway...


We had a wonderful time in this beautiful log cabin. We have 4 children under the age of 10 and the house was very comfortable for us. The decor of the home is top notch as is the view from the deck. The house is clean and has an appropriately stocked kitchen for preparing meals. We very much enjoyed the large hot tub with the unobstructed view of the valley below. Rod, the owner, was extremely pleasant, accessible, responsive and accommodating. During our stay we enjoyed the amenities Tahoe Donner has to offer, including both pools, the beach club, hiking trails and horse back riding. I would definitely recommend this home for families, or even a girls/guys weekend away.

My Daughter's Wedding Weekend


Spectacular! Our family had the occasion to stay at the Log House over my daughter's wedding weekend. The place is magnificent, with sweeping views and every accommodation one could want. It is as amazing as the pictures depict, with five-star luxury accommodations all the way. The owner paid meticulous attention to every detail, from the way it was constructed to the decoration. We were looking for a place that photographed well because we were taking pre-wedding pictures of the bridal party. Everyone was amazed when they walked in. And the photos are so beautiful! We hope to return to The Log House and highly recommend the "experience," because staying there is so much more than just a stay at a vacation rental!

Simply Amazing!


First off - this house is absolutely beautiful!! Second the owner is great! He was more than accommodating and was quick to respond to all of my emails. One person that stayed with us lost her SD card from her camera and Rod personally searched for it. I 100% recommend this house! The view from the hot tub is remarkable. We were fortunate to see sprites over the tips of the mountains far in the distance while sitting in the hot tub. The steam room and sauna felt amazing and the overall feel of the place was very cozy, high class cozy :)

Great House!


The house was a just remarkable and was perfect for accommodating myself and my family members (10 of us stayed). The views are spectacular and the hiking around the area was great. Close to Donner so that we could spend time at the beach club and donner lake and take in the 4th of july activities and fireworks on the lake, which was just spectacular as well. Overall the weekend was just perfect and everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the house and all the amenities very much. It is one of the most specular log homes i have seen and is so perfect for the area. Thanks so much Rod, we just had a blast. I couldn't thank you any more. Highly recommended from this end. BILL

Beautiful Mountain Views


The home is beautiful and very well maintained. It was very clean and had plenty of towels and bedding. The kitchen was well stocked with all you would need to prepare meals. It looks just like the pictures and the view was unbelievable. We were there with 3 generations including younger kids. We went there in hopes of sledding and snowboarding and there was still plenty of snow even for March. We were close to many ski resorts but were also able to sled with the kids right near the house. I'm sure there are lots of things to do in the summer months as well. I would definitely recommend this for families or several adults because there is plenty of room for all. The owner was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome.
