Tahoe Donner house description

Our roomy 4 bedroom home is designed for family fun and comfort! Relax on the expansive decks, loll in the living room in front of the cozy stone fireplace, play pool in the sunroom or just sit back and relax in front of the giant HD TV.

* New internet-connected thermostat means you will arrive to a *warm* house
* New tankless water heater means hot showers are always available. New furnace is quiet and efficient for a totally comfortable stay.

The big open kitchen invites a cooking collaboration and the well stocked cabinets will serve the chefs in the crowd.

The sunken living room has several couches and everyone's favorite, a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window with a view of the surrounding forest. One couch is a queen sleeper and the sectional is very comfortable for an extra bed or two. Sit anywhere and enjoy the giant HD TV over the beautiful stone fireplace.

The adjoining dining room has a big dining table and additional log bar, that combined, seat 12 for that large family dinner. Watch the big game from the log bar with the best view in the house.

Bedrooms:

Master Suite - is like its own retreat with a king bed, private deck, walk-in-closet, computer desk with Wi Fi, TV and bathroom suite with huge spa tub/shower. The Master bedroom also has a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window, a favorite quiet spot for reading that great novel.

Log Room - has a twin trundle bed that can be set up as a king. It has beautiful views of the forest.

Ranch Room - has a four poster queen bed with a memory foam topper, and beautiful views to the forest out back.

Bunk Room - Great for the kids, has a twin over full bunk with a twin trundle underneath. The TV and camp decor make this a favorite hang out.

We keep the kids (and grown ups) busy with the pool table, board games, horse shoes, sledding and of course the big screen TV + 2 TV's in the bedrooms.

                        We had a comfortable stay and enjoyed our vacation. There were a few things that didn't work properly and a few things missing but I guess that's expected with a vacation rental. We were told we would arrive to a warm home and we arrived to a 58 degree house.

                        This place was great. Felt very homey, clean, and comfortable. Rooms fit more than enough people. Close to everything. The upgrade on the house is beautiful. The owner responded very quick to whatever request we needed. We requested a late checkout and she gave it with no problem.

                        We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. It was extremely clean and well cared-for. The beds were comfortable; the living room was full of of cozy couches looking up toward a huge flat-screen TV complete with Roku; the kitchen was stocked with every pot, pan, and kitchen tool we might need; etc. A highlight was the wonderful pool table, which my husband and son played at for hours. Also, lots of nice tables and chairs on the roomy deck. Finally, the owners were responsive (and coherently responsive!) to every question we asked, leaving us feeling confident we'd be in good hands.

The kitchen had everything one would need .Owner was very responsive when we had questions.The Tahoe Donner recreation center includes 3 recreation sites for an additional cost, but the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub at the clubs.I would definitely return...

                        We really enjoyed our stay! The house was clean and very comfortable for 4 adults and 4 kids. Super close to Tahoe Donner Ski Resort, hiking, restaurants and grocery stores. The hill in the back of the house was great for hours of sledding and exploring for the kids. I highly recommend this house!

                        Excellent vacation home. We stayed with two families and three toddlers. The house is perfect for families with kids. We were snowed in for a day, and there were plenty of books and toys to entertain our kids. Once the snow stopped, the backyard, which extends into forested area, was a great play area. We were planning on paying to play in the Donnor Snowplay area, but ended up just sledding in the back yard instead. The listing description is accurate, and the property is clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The owner responded very quickly to email inquiries and concerns. Highly recommend this rental, we would definitely rent here again!

                        What a house! We couldn't have asked for much more. Even with a large group the house felt spacious, yet still maintains that cozy ski-house feel that warms visitors through the winter months. Tucked up in a quiet neighborhood, just minutes from the highway and the town of Truckee, the location doesn't get much easier. Hot showers, a pool table, and a large living room centered around a fireplace... just give me a glass of red wine or whiskey and I've got a perfect weekend in the snow with friends. Only wish we gotten more snow (we won't hold that against the rental though).

                        Came up here with 5 girlfriends to do a monthly book club which we tied in with a Donner Party book. It couldn't have been a more perfect house and weekend! We are a group that loves to cook; this house was equipped to make our gourmet meals, just like being at home! (shocking) We did an awesome 7 mile hike right out the back door, and within minutes we drove to Donner Lake to visit the museum and check out the sites right there. The beds were MORE THAN comfortable, it was incredibly clean and cute. SO COZY!!! We played board games and I would highly recommend this cabin to families with children. It has a mini pool table that we enjoyed tremendously and decks, chairs, etc. I know that I will be renting it again ASAP!! No detail was left undressed.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We both gravitate to the mountains. My husband grew up in the German Alps, and I lived in the Rockies in Montana We have traveled all over Europe and America and always prefer the countryside, especially the mountains. We have have always vacationed in beautiful places with our large extended family, and we keep coming back to Truckee. We love to ski, hike, ride horses, mountain bike, boat, swim and especially just relax. Tahoe Donner is the best place we have found to enjoy all that we do together.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                      We have been visiting the Tahoe area all our lives and kept returning to Tahoe Donner. We frequently rent with another family and love the roomy homes, well planned facillities and easy access to HWY 80 and the surrounding areas. We enjoy the area year round and especially love all the Tahoe Donner amenities - ski hill and equestrian center just up the road, Rec center with pools, gym and hot tubs, lakeside beach club and so much more. We wanted a large family friendly house with easy year-round access and lots of parking. We found all that and much more in our new home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our home is near the top of Tahoe Donner resort and backs up to an open forested preserve. We can hike, bike or cross country ski right out our front or back door and go for miles. We have room for our whole extended family and/or another family we invite up to share a fun vacation together.
