Always enjoy our time in Tahoe Donner and this cabin was generally OK, but we would have the following suggestions for improvement:

1) check the thermostat program. It was running 24/7 with no apparent way to turn it off. Very noisy system.
2) new BBQ grille needed, ignition is very finicky and the burners are very uneven. Got it to work but feels like this is on its last legs.
3) fix shower door in rear BR, it's falling off the rails. Good that the house has two other working showers.
4) entry steps are unstable, especially at the bottom
5) rear deck is nice but an outdoor dining table would be nicer

All in all, has the feeling of a nice home with only OK upkeep. Appreciate the opportunity to comment and thank you for allowing us to use your home.
Manager response:
Thank you for your suggestions, Eugene. A new table has been purchased and will be installed when it arrives. We have a tech scheduled to check the BBQ to see if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced, and the thermostat and entry steps are scheduled for inspection as well. We hope to host you again!

Two TVs was great, three full bathrooms made life easy, the kitchen was fully stocked.

Patio furniture would have been nice to sit outside, nightlights in the bathroom helps kids,

Came up the weekend before Thanksgiving and this house was everything. One level which made it very accessible for older family members. Plenty of space for the adults and the kiddos to hang out. House was equipped with everything we needed. Electric fireplace really warmed the place up. House was on a hill and there were sleds in the garage which made for a great sledding day. Was also very close to grocery store and shops in case you forgot anything. Would definitely stay here again!

Loved every aspect of this cabin! From how close it was to downtown and the scenery was amazing!!!:) couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! Had everything you ever wanted!
Katie S. Nov 2020
Such a nice cabin with an open layout. It was so great having the full kitchen, three bathrooms and the fire place. Only downside is the king bed. The righthand side has a huge dip in it and is very uncomfortable to sleep in. The owners should correct this soon.
Manager response:
Hi, Katie, thank you for staying with us! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the cabin and location! While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not provide for a comfortable night of rest. I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We hope you choose to stay with us again!

Alot of space for a family of 4. Had everything and more that we needed. Felt clean and smelled great! Planning on booking again next year! 5 minutes away from Donner Lake.

I loved this place so much. It was juste and my daughter who is 14 so we had plenty of room. Great Internet, which was important because she still had online school to attend. I fell in love with Truckee even though the air quality was terrible for our trip due to all the fires. This home was clean, bright, spacious, and I loved the layout. Only suggestion would be some TV remote instructions. I was able to do what I needed but could be complicated if you're not familiar with Roku (loved having that one TV for my Sling TV and Beachbody On Demand). I cannot wait to come back next summer with good air and without a pandemic so I can hike and check out the amenities like the swimming pool.

We thought the house was ok but dealing with Vacasa wasn’t easy. I have used Airbnb many times. The hosts have always been readily available. I messaged Vacasa in the beginning because the site alludes to the fact that the house had a hot tub. I never saw a pic of it so I asked if they do. Never got a reply. And by the way they do not have a hot tub. Next we received an email stating that we would get the lock box combo one week prior to arrival. But instead I had to message Vacasa the night before we left NY in the late evening for the combo. They replied at 10AM the day, which was scary since I was flying from NY to CA. So imagine how frightening it was. I was praying that when we got off the plane they had responded which was completely unnecessary. Then when we got to the cabin the beds were poorly made. The blankets didn’t cover the end of the king size bed and the bed ruffle on the queen bed was half stuck in the box spring and the bed comforter looked like some had laid on it. It’s not a terrible offense but with Covid it didn’t reassure me that the place was clean. So I wiped down all the surfaces. Then my husband notice that the air filter was filthy, so my husband had to clean it. We rented the cabin for 9 days and they gave us one hotel trial size shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms. Lastly there were no directions on how to use the TV or a list of the channels. In addition, The cabin is located in Tahoe doner. Again there were no directions or instructions on the amenities. We have stayed in Tahoe Doner before but with Covid we found out the hard way that we needed reservations to use the pool or the beach or any amenity. Honestly the cabin was fine but Vacasa was not truly a great host.
Manager response:
Hello, Joann! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home during your stay with us. We apologize for the miscommunication regarding accessing the home and the amenities, and value your feedback so that we may work to improve the Vacasa experience. We hope to host you again in the future!

We had a wonderful time in Truckee. The home was clean and had nice fixtures. Having three bathrooms was a plus. Good central location but we were surprised that the house is on a busy road. We could hear road noise on the back patio but didn't notice it from the house. Loading/unloading the car was a little stressful for kids' safety as cars drive rather fast on this road. Our only other disappointment was not being able to use the fire pit in the evenings. The kids missed having smores. We chose this house because the pictures showed a fire pit on the patio but were told (after renting) that the house rules forbid using it. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and there were plenty of bath towels.

We loved this house!! It was really nicely remodeled and decorated, clean, very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen had plenty of cookware and utensils, even food storage containers. This was really important to us as we like to cook at home rather than eat out. Loved how it was easy to organize our ski wear as there were plenty of hooks in the front entrance so they could dry and keep the rest of the house clean and neat. The location was very convenient as well. I can't say enough good things about it. I would definitely book to stay there again.
