When you plan your next mountain getaway, make Truckee and this roomy, cabin-style home your destination. With enough space for eight, this home offers guests a comfy home base, as well as easy access to year-round outdoor activities and in-town convenience.

Located in the Tahoe Donner Community, you'll be under four miles from downtown Truckee. Donner Lake is less than three miles away, and golf is less than two miles away. You'll be under 17 miles from beautiful North Lake Tahoe.

The living room, with its high ceilings, large windows, and comfortable furnishings, invites you to sit back and relax while you warm up by the gas fireplace. Make some popcorn and watch a movie on the cable-equipped flatscreen TV, which also has Netflix streaming. And on those evenings when you all can't agree on what to watch, there's another space in the loft, perfect for lounging and featuring another flatscreen TV. The free WiFi will come in handy when you want to check snow conditions and plan activities for your stay.

After you make a hearty meal in the kitchen, which features standard appliances - including a dishwasher, dine together at the table for six. And if you have a full house, use the four addition seats at the adjacent breakfast bar. In the summer, fire up the gas grill when hunger pangs hit, and savor your dinner on the deck, surrounded by tall pines.

This three-bedroom (plus loft), two-bathroom home has ample sleeping options for up to eight guests. There's a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, which has an en suite bathroom and a queen in the second bedroom. There's also a twin-over-double bunk and another single twin bed, as well as two sofabeds. This home also has a washer and dryer set, allowing you to pack light for your travels.

You won't have to go far for outdoor fun when you stay at this home. Summertime travelers will love being so close to the golf course, and when the urge to take a hike comes over you, all you'll have to do is step outside your door to access the Tahoe Donner trail system. Tennis buffs can hit the shared courts, while water lovers can head to Donner Lake for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, and more. And when you just want to have a low-key evening at home, you'll find plenty of games for both kids and adults to keep you occupied.

In the winter, take your pick of nearby top-notch skiing possibilities. Tahoe Donner has its own downhill ski area 3.9 miles away, perfect for kids and beginners. Sugar Bowl is eight miles away, and Northstar is 12 miles away. If you're focused on doing some skiing or boarding at world-renowned Squaw Valley, you'll only have to drive 13 miles. And when you want to unwind and rest up for another fun-filled day of snow play, head to the Trout Creek Recreation Center and lounge in the shared hot tub or sauna, or take a relaxing dip in the pool.

Regardless of when you come to Truckee, you'll leave with lasting memories of meaningful time spent with friends and family. And when you book this cozy mountain home, you'll set yourself up for a fun, stress-free vacation in this lovely mountain community.
A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

This house is so nice. Plenty of room yet with a cozy feel. The location is private with an easy drive to any Lake Tahoe beach. No regrets other than having to leave. We will return.
Marianne N. Aug 2020
This house had everything we wanted and more! So many fun games and activities to entertain the children and a great backyard to go hiking in! Updated and very comfortable!
Ji W. Aug 2020
Very clean and comfortable place
Toby L. Feb 2020
Very nice ski home. It was clean and nicely appointed with gas fireplace and lots of space to lounge.
Curtis O. Oct 2019
Nice place that is very comfortable, well appointed in a nice location up in Tahoe Donner
The town of Truckee is approximately 20 min from Lake Tahoe and offers mostly what we need or want away from the crowds
The HOA does expect a $15 fee per person when using the amenities aka: club house, tennis, gym etc......
The home has pretty much everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay like; spices in the kitchen, and appliances and anything you’d expect in the kitchen
The towels in the bathroom are very plush and the sheets on the bed are all high end. The money is in the details here
Couches tables and chairs are all a plenty and comfortable as are the beds
Things that need improvements are minimal but really expected anywhere; downstairs bathtub didn’t hold water and A bath would have been great after a full day of exercise
Stairs railing gave a good splinter from the pine drying out, and spitting on the underside as your hand slides up the rail
All the windows needed a good cleaning and detracted from the views as water spots were pretty evident
And lastly, I gave the decks a good sweeping and wash down when I arrived as the pine needles needed clearing.
Nothing that would keep us from staying again mind you
The fireplace is really pretty, Tv’s are large and nice as well
The air is very very dry.
Only suggestion I recommend is a warm air humidifier as its really needed as all the heating elements will dry you out quickly
We would stay here again in a heart beat
Treated this home as our own for 9 days and when making the choice to come back, this will be on my radar for the future
Thanks so much
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. Our local staff has addressed your comments with housekeeping and they will take care of the windows. The exterior of the home was recently painted and the roof was recently worked on as well. There are contact updates being performed on the home. There was a new stopper recently installed in the tub. The railing will also be addressed by maintenance and the owner. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again soon.

We enjoyed the house very much, it was close to Reno to see the hot air balloons as well as Lake Tahoe.
Monica B. Apr 2019
This cabin was beautiful, included all the necessities & was in a great location. My family was able to relax & enjoy watching the snow fall outside while my kids took full advantage of playing in it. It was also a good location for us to take trips to see Tahoe, Reno & Virginia City. So we had a great time & would definitely do again.

Very clear house with good furniture. Comfortable beds and renovated bathrooms. Quite and beautiful location.
Lisa D. Apr 2019
we booked The Hideaway in March when there was pleasnty of snow. The location was perfect, just close enough to Truckee for items we may have needed. The temperatures were in the 30's F and the gas fireplace and heater worked very well. It was nice and cozy. The kitchen had lots of plates and wine glasses. No platter for a ham or turkey. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were also clean and recently remodeled. Parking three cars with ease. BBQ and BBQ utensils were in large supply. Had a great time!
Celeste B. Mar 2019
We had a great stay at The Hideaway! Very clean and cozy cabin with everything you need during your stay! And just minutes away from skiing and downtown Truckee! We are definitely planning on booking this place again!
Connaught H. Jan 2019
We loved our stay. The house has everything you could need for a short or long stay. Close to downtown Truckee and Donner Lake. We were able to get to both Northstar and Sugarbowl in under 20 minutes. Beautiful home!
Eric G. Nov 2018
Great location, clean, soft towels, full kitchen, tons of games!
Nicole M. Aug 2018
We loved The Hideaway! It was much better than advertised, with newly remodeled bathrooms, beautiful mountain style furniture and stylish finishing touches.
We are a family of three and stayed for a week. My 5 year old daughter especially loved the legit, full size video arcade game in her room with bunk beds. Beware you may improve your Pac-Man or Galaga game!
The loft area is awesome. The TV is huge and there are many DVD’s and board games for all ages.
There is a new outdoor grill (although it could use a deep clean) and the deck and patio furniture are roomy enough for 6-8 people for dinner.
The kitchen is a bit dated, but still had everything we needed to prepare all our meals and there are tons of nice plates, silverware, and wine glasses.
In the garage, there are arcade style basketball hoops and a corn hole set which aren’t mentioned in the description.
We will definitely be back next summer!

Super clean, easy access, everything you need is there. Close to everything. Early check in was available, and a bonus for us.
Precious J. May 2018
For the most part this property was nice, but we did find mice droppings in the beds down stairs, also hair on bathroom floor up stairs and when I reached out to vacasa the only response that I received was to please check out on time.
Manager response:
We apologize for these events. We do our best to prevent anything like this from happening, but given our region is located in the middle of a vast and lively forest, it's not always possible to keep all the critters away. We have contacted a pest control service, and they have treated the home. Housekeeping has cleaned the home thoroughly. Thanks!
Kelly R. Apr 2018
We had a wonderful time at this cabin. It was clean and comfortable. The house has games for the kids, space in the back to run around, and a nice loft area.
Gregory G. Apr 2018
Nice place in a great area
