About Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering
We are a family of six and have visited Tahoe Donner often. We love the peace and beauty of the mountains. Hiking and swimming in summer, or just relaxing in the backyard. We love to ski in winter, and so decided to host this cabin to our guests and their families to enjoy.
Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering purchased this House in 2012
Why Yvonne Baur and Soren Detering chose Truckee
We love Tahoe Donner to give our kids more opportunity to experience nature year-round, and to create a family tradition in the mountains. We looked at many places, but this one made us feel at home the minute we walked in. The Alder Creek Adventure Center is just a short drive away from the cabin. The Alder Creek Adventure center gives access to absolutely gorgeous cross-country well maintained slopes. We will try snow-shoeing for the first time this season. In summer there is mountain biking, and an equestrian center.
What makes this House unique
Thoughtful decorations, the flat lot towards the end of the street, the big backyard, and the general build-quality made us cherish this house. Whether lying in the hammock in the backyard and listening to the birds, or playing a round of foosball, vacation bliss is all around you! There are two Tahoe-Donner guest cards in the house for use by our guests. With these cards, our guests enjoy access to Tahoe Donner amenities: Beach Club Marina, Snowplay, Northwoods Pool, Trout Creek Recreation Center and the Tennis Center. These cards provide access to above private amenities, where guest access fees will apply. Guests age 7 and up pay an $8 daily entrance fee with member and $12 daily fee without a member. Up to four guests may gain access on a single transferable guest card, hence up to 8 guests can access amenities at a given time. This is a pretty cool arrangement, we love going to the rec center's gym, enjoying the hot-tubs after a workout or apre-ski. There are two huge heated outdoor pools as well. This is a unique place. In summer, we love driving 10min. to Donner Lake, a private marina and lovely beach also operated by TD recreation. It is super easy to rent a kayak, catamaran, or other toys available for rent or checkout. There are unique boulders on the beach, and a fun bathing platform. This is a special place.

We enjoyed our stay at the Foosball cabin. The cabin was comfortable and kid friendly, located just a short drive from downtown Truckee. The property owners were great to communicate with regarding any issues we had. We did book a year in advance and there were some rate changes during that time that were communicated to us. There was some concern from the property owners that the house would not comfortably accommodate our party of 6 adults and 4 children under 4. We were more than comfortable and didn’t even need to use the extra pullout couch bed. The kids loved the sledding hill across the street and the foosball table and train set located in the loft.
Perfect for family gathering
Our family recently stayed at the "Foosball Cabin"...it was the perfect setting for a multi-generational getaway. Cozy, plenty of space and the teens loved the foosball table. Great amenities, clean, and super comfortable.
Winter wonderland in the back, perfect for snow forts and snowball fights. After a night of snow, we really appreciated the use of the garage and the plowed driveway, no digging out required!
We hope to come back and explore in the summer.
Soren and Yvonne have a wonderful property. They take incredible care of it and are so great to work with. Highly recommended!!!
Relaxing and quite home.
VERY quite and nice neighborhood! Great location if you're visiting Truckee, Donner and even Tahoe. The house was very comfortable. Had a crying baby in the upstairs room and you could hardly hear her crying downstairs. They had a great supply of towels and linen. There was a lot of information about the home and things to do in the area. They did a great job with labeling things. Seems like they try to keep the home in good condition. Good communication with the owners. We would highly recommend this home!
The house was very nice and in a great location. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Horseshoes and the foosball table were definitely taken advantage of. We loved being under all those pine trees. There are a few stains on the carpet and the bedspread on master bed was covered in dog hair but those are little things that didn't take away from our positive experience. The beds were very comfortable. We would definitely stay again. Thank you!
Thank you Summer, appreciate your great review. Last week we had professional carpet cleaners in the cabin who managed to clean the carpet. Thank you again!
This cabin is on a beautiful, quiet street in Tahoe Donner. Very nice neighbors. Perfect space for my family of four, but it could definitely accommodate an additional family of four. Owners are very responsive and helpful. Nice linens, appliances, decor, and furniture throughout the house. There’s a lot of stuff for young kids-wooden train set, plastic dining items, X Box, DVDs, etc. There’s garage access if you want to park inside or store toys. Flat driveway and winter-friendly entry way. We’d definitely stay here again.
