    This cabin is truly a gem. The view is amazing and the cabin itself very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and we cooked all of our meals there. Spotless clean and full of Tahoe charm. I appreciated the thoughtful and prompt communication with the hosts. We skied with our kiddos at Donner Ski Ranch which was a short and beautifully 10 minute drive Our family loved every minute there and we hope to be back!

    We had a great time in Truckee in Sheldon's cabin. The cabin is easily accessible from I-80 and we loved being able to walk to the lake.

    Great location and amazing views of the lake. The cabin is very well thought out and we had no trouble getting settled in and had a wonderful family vacation in the Tahoe snow.

    The cabin was so cozy during a winter storm and our family of five was so comfortable! There were so many things we appreciated: the well-stocked kitchen (we had everything we needed to make dinner - condiments, cooking utensils, pots and pans), the detailed instructions for everything, the excellent heating system, the electric blankets...We were so cozy in the cabin that we never wanted to leave, especially with that beautiful view of the lake! Sheldon was also very responsive to all of our questions.

    Charming, cozy, and well-equipped cabin with a beautiful view. Brilliant location: just across the street from Donner Lake, minutes away from a Safeway, and a short trip from skiing at Squaw Valley resort. Lots of cooking supplies. The hosts are responsive and thoughtful, and they left detailed and easy instructions. I would highly recommend this cabin!

    This was perfect for our small family. Cozy, convenient, and comfortable–we definitely will be going back to Sheldon's place. Very close to Sugar Bowl, and a delicious café right down the street.

    I stayed at Sheldon's airbnb a weekend in February 2016 that was particularly snowy. Sheldon's place was beautiful, comfortable, and well-stocked. The kitchen had plenty of cookware and basic salt, oil, and spices. The bedrooms had electric blankets, which were particularly useful given the cold weather. The living room had so many board games and card games that kept all of us entertained. We absolutely loved the location. It's located right across the street from Donner Lake, meaning that we had breathtaking views of the lake from the dining room/living room. We also walked across the street to the dock to take in the incredible views. My only point of frustration was that the airbnb was rather difficult to find when we first arrived. The snowy conditions made it very tricky, and the airbnb is easy to miss on an initial drive down the street. Moreover, when we arrived at the airbnb, it had snowed 5-6 inches, but the driveway had not been plowed. Although this issue had been flagged to us, it was terribly nerve-wracking and stressful to try to drive and then park the car in the driveway because it was very steep and covered in packed snow. Even though my car had snow tires, it still kept sliding down the driveway.

    We had a fantastic stay at Sheldon's place. 2 nights, Friday and Saturday 2/10 & 2/11. Two couples, plenty of space. The cabin is nicely laid out and the hanging out area faces the lake. We went up for XC sking at the nearby Tahoe Donner ski resort. Super convenient. We prepared one dinner at the cabin...plenty of cooking supplies available, and we ate one meal out in nearby Truckee...cute lil' town with shops and yummy food. We enjoyed extreme winter conditions with more snow than the area has seen in many years. We'd love to return for a stay in the summer where we could enjoy Sheldon's lovely deck. P.S. Don't miss Wild Cherries Cafe - just down the road.

    The cabin is perfectly located near downtown Truckee and Northstar ski resort. The cabin has a great view of the lake and a wonderful backyard for making snow tubing runs ! The entire experience was easy and Sheldon was very friendly and helpful from the time of booking until departure. We would definitely come back again!!

    This cabin was fantastic, can't wait to rent it during the summer. Very thorough instructions and great place for a family. My only complaint is that it seems like it was over too quick.

    I loved this house. It was absolutely perfect my 4 adults and 2 kids. The house is located right off of I80, so it made getting there and leaving super easy. The Safeway is down the street, so you can pick up everything you need. Boreal is just 30 mins away. The house is so cute! We all really enjoyed our stay at the house, often commenting to each other about it during the weekend. When I head back up to Truckee to snowboard, I know where I'm going to stay.

    This was a great place! Awesome view of Donner Lake and very close to the park, which was beautiful after the snow fall. The hosts were very responsive. Overall, a fantastic experience

    Sheldon's cabin is in a great location on Donor Lake, and came well-appointed for our stay. Our kids loved walking down to the water and we all enjoyed fun meals on the expansive deck. It was surprising how well appointed the kitchen was, and we appreciated being very close to friends living just down the street. We didn't need to communicate directly with Sheldon while staying because his notes and instructions for the house were so clear and very thorough. Hoping we can visit again in the future.

    For the second year in a row, we had an amazing time at Sheldon's place!!! As usual, the information was extremely organized, down to the most minute detail. The house was very clean, and the location is so amazing! The huge deck overlooking the lake is our favorite part! I would live here if I could. Any question I had was answered immediately. We just can't say enough good things about staying here, and we look forward to many years to come!

    What a beautiful location and charming cabin! We had a wonderful time on our vacation and couldn't have asked for a better cabin and host. The owners were very responsive and helpful when we had questions. We will definitely recommend this cabin to family and friends and we are already checking our calendar for future dates. This cabin is great for families, because of the location to the lake/docks and the expansive deck and horseshoe pit was a favorite! All in all this was one of my kiddos favorite vacation, thanks again!

    v We stayed at Sheldon's cabin with a family group of 5 adults and one child. It was as pictured, with a great view of the lake from the deck. The cabin has a rustic, old school vibe, but it's comfortable as well. Very close to lake activities, as well as skiing in the winter. Our party enjoyed our stay.

    Location was great! The house is small, but 3 adults and 2 kids were comfortable and you want to be outside anyways. The kitchen was well stocked and we had no problems cooking meals and relaxing on the deck with a great view. It is on a busy road, but we were not bothered by car noises and the deck you walk out on prevented my kids from going down the driveway near the road.

    Sheldon is so responsible, always responding to our questions at his earliest convenience. We spent a weekend to ski at the Northstar, about 10~15min drive -- very close. The unit is also right next to the I-80 entrance, very convenient. His Cabin is cozy and comfortable, with fully equipped Kitchen, great fire-place, good LCD TV and NICE view to the Donner lake. The rental price is very attractive in the Truckee area. I'd recommend this unit if anyone is looking for the best price over quality.

    We loved how much character this cabin had, especially all the neat wall hangings and old maps! The kitchen really is very well stocked and the open layout is great for making meals while people hang out by the fireplace. It also snowed on us quite a bit while we were here and we were very happy to find that the mud room had everything we needed to get all the snow off our cars and the driveway. We also appreciated Sheldon's detailed instructions driveway.
