UCSF Tahoe Cabin ExteriorWelcome to Tahoe
The UCSF Winter Cabin lies ten minutes from old town Truckee, a historically rich mountain town that acts as the central gateway to the North Shore of Tahoe. It is a three to four hour drive (northeast) from San Francisco. Truckee boasts many shopping, dining and entertainment venues. Two miles west of Truckee just off I-80, Donner Lake is a recreation area that includes Donner Memorial State Park. The 353-acre park includes 140 campsites, 60 picnic sites and frontage on Donner Lake and Creek.

There are twelve ski resorts in North Lake Tahoe, and it is home to many winter activities–skiing and snowboarding, tubing, hot springs, ice skating, and more.

UCSF Winter Cabin Living RoomWelcome to Our Cabin
The cabin features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, entertainment center, washer/dryer, and ample parking. The cabin sleeps up to 16, with eight twin beds, four full size beds, and one queen. Though dishes and utensils are provided, linens, towels, and toilet paper are not. In order to keep the cabin affordable, reservation holders are responsible for the cleaning of the cabin and light snow shoveling at the end of their stay. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at our cabin.

Tahoe-Donner Downhill Ski and Cross-Country areas are five minutes away from the cabin. These resorts are excellent for beginners, intermediates, and families. Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Northstar are all within a 20-minute drive of the cabin (assuming good driving conditions).

The cabin is perfect for groups of friends and family members looking for a venue to accommodate a small group. Reserve a weekend or a week; the prime location of the cabin, comfortable accommodations, and myriad of near-by activities will ensure a relaxing time, or a fun adventure…whichever you choose.
