Nestled in the trees on the top of Ski Slope, our stunning log home sits on two acres, giving it a parklike setting with privacy and elegance. Designed to evoke the feel of your own private lodge, exquisite attention was given to craftsmanship, finishes and decor. Each log was lovingly hand picked in Montana. A large bank of windows brings the outdoors in no matter the season. The spacious great room with its stone fireplace is the perfect spot to track winter snowdrifts or watch deer and birds.
Two professional bakers designed the kitchen. With prep and kitchen sinks, large Viking range and indoor grill, it is easy to prepare an intimate dinner for two or a family Thanksgiving feast. The spacious open floor plan easily meets the needs of a busy family.
Designed for ease of living, there are three bedrooms: one bedroom (queen-size bed) and bathroom on the main floor for those who prefer not to use stairs. Upstairs are the master bedroom (queen-size bed), and the 3rd bedroom (full-size bed). The loft, with two twin-size daybeds, provides perfect away space for reading or watching a movie. A mudroom minimizes after ski hassles, and forced air heating warms the house quickly - there is a lovely woodburning fireplace to further enhance the lodge-feeling.
In summer you'll find golf courses, tennis courts, a full equestrian center, swimming pools, archery, a recreation center with a fully equipped work-out facility, hot tubs and sauna, recreation events, day camps, spectacular biking and hiking (ask me about great hikes organized by the Tahoe Donner Hiking Club!),and of course access to the Donner Lake Private Beach and Marina with all its water activities for endless terrific family fun, plus year around heated outdoor pools, spas and sauna, great rock climbing and much more.
Check Tahoe Donner's website for more information.

Reno's international airport is only 30 minutes away. If you have a private plane you can fly into Truckee Airport.
In winter ski in/ski out from the back of our property to the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort! And a mere 20-30 minutes away are the world class downhill and cross country ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge to name just a few. Minutes away are the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort, Cross Country area, downhill sledding and ice skating rink. And you will appreciate the level driveway to get to the house!
No shortage of things to do to be sure. But if what you want to do is to do nothing at all, then we invite you to our home. Its tranquil beauty is guaranteed to hold you captive making it difficult to ever think of leaving!
On a final note, this home was a labor of love. We trust that those who rent it will keep this in mind and will treat it well. It sleeps six to eight people comfortably. It is not a home for large parties or groups. Kids/teenagers must be accompanied by adults.
Please note: We have an outside webcam installed for security.

About Woutje Swets
This house was love at first sight for us. We love the starry nights, the snow topped trees, the huge logs that were used to make the house - it just fits like a glove any time of the year!
Why Woutje Swets chose Truckee
Summers are fabulous! There are endless water sports, a private beach and marina at Donner lake, biking and hiking, tennis, golf, horseback riding, archery - we love it all! And we love the winter! We go skiing at Squaw, Northstar, Alpine, Sugar Bowl, and Tahoe Donner (just to name a few resorts). And then there is Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner itself for great cross country skiing or snow shoeing. Plus ice skating in Truckee, Northstar and Squaw Valley, and we go snowshoeing right by our house!
What makes this House unique
The house is very private. It sits on almost two acres and backs up to the Open Space that is the Tahoe Donne Ski Resort so we can ski in and ski out. The Tahoe Donner recreation facilities are fabulous with swimming pools, a gym, restaurants, a private beach at Donner Lake, a wonderful golf course, horseback riding, nice restaurants in old town Truckee, or we drive over the border to Nevada to check out the Casinos. So much to do, but also so wonderful to stay home and cook up fabulous meals in the kitchen designed by two professional bakers!

The cutest log cabin ever!!
The character in this home is awesome! Would highly recommend. Able to enjoy God's beautiful Creation w wonderful views. We snowshoed on the backside of the cabin right after it snowed in fresh power. It was wonderful. Time w family, cooking, and wonderful weather - excellent vacation!
Beautiful house with real charm and character!
A wonderful house in a great location. Cozy with a big fireplace and spacious kitchen, I would highly recommend it for a winter getaway!
This is the best vacation rental we have ever stayed in! This property is just gorgeous!
Stunning house, lovely views, and hiking and biking trails literally just up the road and you can go for miles and miles. We will be back for skiing in the winter - we already booked! One of the ski runs is right behind the property so just strap 'm on and off you go!
The beds were so comfortable, the linens were soft, the stone fireplace amazing, and we saw three deer walk by right outside the kitchen windows. The kids loved being here for the week. Tons of games and puzzles. we went swimming in Donner Lake (the HOA has a private beach there). We played bocci ball, went horseback riding, played tennis - there is so much to do, but just as wonderful to curl up with a book and "be in the moment" in this wonderful log house. Highly recommended!
Great experience! a perfect house for a family vacation
We have spent 3 days and enjoyed the careful attention to all the small details and the beautiful surroundings. Would go back.
Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful log house
We loved our stay at this place this summer. The house is impeccably styled, furnished with great taste and much love. We wanted to stay in a place a little out of the busy areas and found this peaceful place up on "Skislope". Woutje was always helpful and responsive throughout the process. We would definitely recommend this place.
Thank you for your comments. I am so happy to know that you had a good time. Please spread the word to your friends in Europe and hopefully till next time!
