About Tim

We bought the Townhouse in the fall of 2006. It has been a great place to escape to at any time of year. Having primarily been a winter activities couple up in Tahoe, we both discovered the true meaning when locals say 'we came for the winter and stayed for the summer'. We find ourselves up here in the summer as much as the winter. We now have twin boys and have discovered how perfect this house and the area is for families.

We are both middle school teachers and live most of the time in the bay area. We enjoy traveling when we can and always like to return to Tahoe Donner.

Tim purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Tim chose Truckee

I grew up learning how to ski at Tahoe Donner in the mid '70's. The memories of this time always bring a smile to my face and have helped form my love for this area. It is an experience we love to share with our family, friends and guests who stay here.

What makes this townhome unique

The close proximity to all the fantastic amenities while keeping a secluded feel is great. Being just across from Trout Creek Rec. center, Snow Play and the golf course is a real bonus. The townhouse is located away from the road and is an end unit with only one common wall. No one above or below. The nature trail just across the street is a great way to start the morning with a short hike or jog.

Great clean lovely townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place ! We are New Yorkers and have high expectations. We would recommend this home to all our family and friends . It was clean, comfy and decorated like a home away from home. The house was close to 7/11 for coffee runs and the gym across the street had everything. We slept great and was able to enjoy the deck and the owner gave us easy directions to enter because we arrived in the middle of the night. My family and I will return and we were highly satisfied!!

Pleasant Summer Stay in Tahoe Donner

  • 4 of 5

I was pleasantly pleased with this condo as we felt like we were staying at a friend's home than a sterile rental. There are two levels. When you walk into the condo, you are greeted by a bed/bath (single over double bunk bed and a child's bed), the laundry area, garage entrance, and a stairway. Upstairs there is another bed/bath with a queen, the living area, and kitchen. The condo is extremely comfortable, with a nice size living area, and conveniently located across from the Trout Recreation Center, where there is a pool, playground, and cafe. Access is $8/pp with the guest pass. Across the street is also the start of the circular Trout Creek nature trail, which is a really enjoyable walk (even with my 5-year-old in tow). I think it was approximately 2 miles. With the guest passes you also have access to the private lake area for $6/pp, where there are lounge chairs and rentals (kayaks, SUP, etc). Parking is limited and it gets really crowded, so arrive early or late if it's a busy time. There is a cafe on site as well, but items run out by the end of the day.

Some things to note:

- There are tons of games, puzzles and a toy bin, that my 5-year-old loved.

- The kitchen has everything you need, but I did recommend a coffee maker upgrade.

- The upstairs bed is extremely comfortable, but the lower bunk bed is extremely uncomfortable ( I recommended replacing) and the linens could use a refreshing.

- I do think the unit could use more bath towels and have extra linens more conveniently placed. You will find extra items in the closets, but it is not well organized.

- There is no A/C, but despite being a really hot weekend, the condo stayed cool.

- Bring a flashlight (as recommended) if you come at night. The place can be a bit daunting to find as there are rows of condos off Northwoods. Just take your time on your way up. It is located after the big Tahoe Donner sign, but just before the recreation center.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it or stay again. It was definitely one of the better places we have found using VRBO in our price range.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We always appreciate any suggestions to help make our guests as comfortable as possible. A new mattress for the bottom bunk is in the works. We also make sure to have enough towels and linens for each of our guests. Thanks again for staying with us and look forward to having you back again soon!

Clean quiet comfortable and convienient

  • 4 of 5

We spent the last weekend before school starts mostly at Donner Lake. Tim's place was a great location just 8-10 min to Donner lake and downtown Truckee. The rec center was literally across the street, everything was super convenient. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and just perfect for the amount of time we spent inside. We had a minor issue with the water and Tim got back to us immediately and resolved the small problem. I would highly recommend staying here, and would definitely book Tim's place again.

Great Stay in Donner Truckee in Cozy Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

A great place to relax after a day of recreating in all that that area has to offer. Close enough, but not in the middle of everything. The cabin felt like a home away from home and we feel more relaxed because of our stay there.
