Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband’s family has rented both houses for a reunion of five cousins and their families. The houses have 8 bedrooms between them, and the larger house has a loft. The back decks have morning shade, and the front decks have afternoon shade. The homes are very well equipped in all ways—kitchen, linens, beach towels, and condiments—and the layout is such that there is private space as well as gathering space. We look forward to renting again.

Lovely homes

  • 5 of 5

These two homes side by side were perfect for our family reunion.

We had plenty of room for sleeping and the Tahoe Chalet was big enough that we could all eat dinner together. We loved having the deer visit us every day. Thanks Jennifer for sharing your homes with us!

Great option for large groups!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 14 split between the 2 homes. The proximity of the homes and set up of each made it easy to host dinners in either property. The views including sunrise and sunset were spectacular (excluding the power lines in the front). We also saw at least 20-25 deer roaming the properties during our stay which was a fun surprise for the kids and adults! Host was also wonderful, accommodating and very responsive over email. The only downside was the cost to access Tahoe Donner amenities - pool, beach, etc. -$12 per adult. But we knew that going into the rental and there are plenty of other options between Truckee and Lake Tahoe. So this was very minor. Overall, great stay and I’d definitely recommend these properties.

Beautiful properties

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at both homes for a family reunion. Pictures do not do the homes justice - especially the views! We had a minor issue with house cleaning when we arrived at one of the homes, but Jennifer was extremely responsive and took care of the issue immediately. Would definitely stay again.

We, a group of 21, stayed in this wonderful property during 2018 memorial day weekend. The arrangement worked very well for us. The location is good - lots of walking/biking trails around trout creek and alder creek.

Perfect for a large group ski trip

  • 5 of 5

The two chalets were perfect for our large group ski trip (17 people). We ended up hanging out and cooking group meals in “Tahoe Summit Chalet” which was a little bigger and more newly renovated. The sunset views are magnificent (especially from the hot tub). This place exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend staying here.
