Property description

Wake up in a beautiful wooded location, with sunshine streaming through the trees. Quiet and peaceful. Private Hot Tub for 6. Soak under the stars and among the trees! NEW CARPET as of April 2015. :)

Gorgeous 4 bedroom plus loft, 3 bathrooms (two master suites - big jacuzzi tub, huge marble rain shower). 1 king, 2 queens, 4 twins + 2 sleeper sofas. All four bedrooms have BLACKOUT SHADES so you can sleep! :) The downstairs master bedroom has new carpet as of Dec. 2014 and a new Memory Foam mattress, which get better reviews than regular mattresses.

Beautifully furnished, fabulous location close to convenience store + Rec Center, where you can use pools, hot tubs, golf course + other Tahoe Donner amenities. Spacious great room with wood cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light. We have a beautiful piano out of the main thoroughfares in the loft. Awesome wood stove, firewood in the garage. Laundry downstairs. 2 car garage and huge flat driveway can accommodate many cars. Two large flat-screen TVs with DVD/Cable. Piano is conveniently tucked away in the loft. High-speed WiFi Internet access. Nice deck perfect for BBQ, gas grill brand new as of summer 2014. Patio dining table available during the non-winter months, also new as of summer 2014.

Nearby attractions include Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, historic downtown Truckee, casinos, Reno, bike paths, hiking trails, x-country skiing, etc. No smoking. Pet friendly, please inquire. This is MUCH nicer than your typical rental home. We look forward to your visit to our lovely home. :)

We are pet friendly and charge a modest fee to help cover the inevitable extra costs of having pets here. Please inquire.

Ski Lease Applicants: Generally, we have such high popularity for short-term rentals that this house is NOT available for ski lease. If you would like to rent the house from Jan. 4, 2016 to Mar. 13, 2016, the rate will be $16K plus cleaning fees and deposit. It must be paid up front by check or wire transfer and is non-refundable.

"This is the nicest house we've ever rented in Tahoe!" December 2014, just got off the phone with my latest rental party, and that's what she said verbatim. It feels great hearing that because I spend time at this house during the off season keeping it BEAUTIFUL. I want my renters to have a wonderful experience.

The CC fee for credit cards is 2.5% of the transaction (we put $75 because there is no way to make it variable on the site). This fee is WAIVED if you make payment by check or wire transfer. Please inquire for more details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

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. :)
