Tahoe Donner house description
It's almost winter in Tahoe Donner, so come and enjoy our 3 bedroom Truckee Tahoe vacation home. This home is conveniently located in Tahoe Donner in the town of Truckee, with year round activities right out of your door. This comfortable, spacious and very well-equipped home offers privacy in a lodgepole pine setting, with a sunny front deck and private wooded back yard complete with hammock, hot tub, and Weber gas grill. All with easy access to the beauty and serenity of the Sierras and Lake Tahoe!
This two story home built in 1990 hosts 1800 square feet with an open floor plan, knotty pine vaulted ceilings. Newer furnishings, a large dining area that seats 8, and the wood burning fireplace creates a cozy and comfortable place for your next vacation. The home is well maintained, decorated with art and antiques, yet it is child safe and family friendly. We aim for this house to be a comfortable place to relax - it is not a fussy high-end house where you will be afraid to let your kids play! We want to relax in Tahoe, not worry that we will mess up the carpet or leave hand prints on the furniture. As owners with kids, we want to share this level of comfort with our guests as well.
We stock the house with everything we think you will need for your vacation - condiments and all kitchen needs, full laundry (with soap!), plenty of toys for the snow and sand, plastic dishes and tablecloths for picnics, shelves of books, booster chair, and of course DVDs and videos. All the mattresses are new, and come with down comforters and good quality linens. You just need to bring yourselves - not a car full of gear and sleeping bags!
The layout is great for two families, or for a family traveling with inlaws/grandparents. The master suite with King bed is located on the main floor (this also has a small loft) and has direct access to the deck out back with hot tub. Upstairs is a living area/library with a full sized futon, full bathroom, and two bedrooms (Queen; and 2 Twins + trundle). We have fit up to 3 families, but you better like each other as it is a squeeze! Two seem to work best.

Tahoe Summer Vacation
Tahoe Summer Vacation
My family just spent the 4th of July week at this cabin in Tahoe Donner. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay there again. The cabin is perfect for one or two families. It is well maintained and comfortable. The cabin is centrally located to all the things you want to experience up in Tahoe Donner. We enjoyed hiking and riding our mountain bikes on trails that were minutes from the cabin. We went to the pool one day as well as Donner Lake, also very close to the cabin. We spent almost every evening in the hot tub on the back deck. Good family times in Tahoe!

Lovely home, great location
Lovely home, great location
This is the second time my family has stayed here and I hope to make it an annual visit. We came for a long President's Day weekend along with another family. The 8 of us fit comfortably and had a great time both in the house and enjoying snowshoeing, skiing, and exploring Tahoe-Donner and Truckee. Unlike the majority of vacation rentals I've experienced, arriving feels like walking into someone's actual home. Warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated, the house has everything you need to make meals, play, and relax. We rarely went out for meals, preferring to prepare them in the well appointed kitchen (it has was real people need to cook with) and have family dinners around the big pine table followed by a movie in the living room or a soak in the hot tub. I can't say enough good things about this house and am looking forward to coming back!

Great house for ski weekendGuest comment entered by owner
Great house for ski weekend
We chose this lovely home for a ski weekend with our two boys. We loved the layout, and it felt very cozy. The kitchen was so well stocked!. It was great to go out to the hot tub after a hard day skiing and be surrounded by snow and be able to look up at the stars. I enjoyed the very comfortable beds. Susan was very easy to work with and very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend this home!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Originally from the Midwest, we discovered Tahoe Donner as a convenient and FUN mountain community when we moved to the San Francisco area in 1998. Plenty of weekends and ski seasons were spent in the area, and in 1998 we decided to take the plunge and purchase this property. We never seem to get enough time with the busy life of working and juggling a family, so we have decided to rent this home to others. It helps pay the property taxes, too! We do not list the home through a rental agent, rather we maintain the home ourselves so to maintain a high standard for ourselves and our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
Tahoe Donner is really centrally located to many ski resorts, hiking trails, fishing, and of course - lakes! It has very easy access with I-80 to Reno and Sacramento/Bay area only a few miles away. We also love all of the amenities that this community offers - the cross country and downhill skiing in the winter, and the beach club, golfing, and equestrian in the summer. The pools and fitness center (including yoga classes) are fantastic. But it is also a great place just to relax and get away from the daily grind. An easy hike within the hundreds of acres of open space at Tahoe Donner works wonders for the soul!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love coffee on the front deck in the sun on a summer or fall morning, and the trail at the top of our street makes for a perfect morning hike. And nothing beats the hot tub after a long day of skiing or snowshoeing. Our boys love building snow forts in the back yard and sledding - they are sometimes happy not even leaving the house!
