About the owner: I love skiing and the outdoors, and I love sharing this beautiful house with my renters. :)
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner: As soon as I saw this house, I knew this was THE ONE. I could see its potential. Due to its prime Tahoe Donner location, there was a bidding war so I put in a bid well over asking price and got the house! Since then we have lovingly updated, remodeled, and improved every single year - and we love it! You will too :)
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the most beautiful lots in Tahoe Donner. Set back from the road in a very quiet neighborhood. Nearly half an acre. Serene and peaceful with tremendous privacy and access to a large greenbelt behind the house. The house is also kept in prime condition, upgraded regularly, and is much nicer than your typical rental house.
Note about allergies: Please note this is a PET-FRIENDLY house in a wilderness area! Dogs, cats, and other animals may have been in the house recently. We cannot guarantee that people with allergies will not have reaction either due to pets or the heavy pollen we get in Tahoe. The air also gets very dry up here at high altitude, especially during the winter. We recommend alerting your guests to this issue and bringing a humidifier and/or air purifier if this will be more comfortable for you. :)
