About Jim and Ann

Residents of the SF Bay Area who use Casa Sierra as a vacation home

Jim and Ann purchased this house in 2006

Why Jim and Ann chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe Donner is a year-round vacation getaway. We love to ski and golf and we love the tons of amenities. We also love that it is easy to get to quickly, just off of I-80 once you cross Donner Pass. It's about a half hour closer to the SF Bay Area and Sacramento than anyplace else in the Lake Tahoe Basin yet has easy and quick access to everything fun about the Lake Tahoe Basin

What makes this house unique

Golf, horse back riding, swimming, hiking, fishing, private beach on Donner Lake, summer concerts, hay rack rides, western campfire BBQs, winter skiing, sledding, great restaurants, spending times with family and friends.

Very cozy cabin with all the amenities needed for a snowy family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the coziness of the cabin and everything worked very well, including the heater which was very important in January during snow storms. The yard provided a great snow play area for me and my kids. There is a snow plow service but we did have to shovel the driveway when we arrived due to heavy snow all day and the cable/wifi went out during a storm. But the cabin had everything we needed to still enjoy our time inside - DVD's, some games, good central heating, lots of blankets. All in all, a great time in a clean cozy cabin! Look forward to going back.

Another Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the lovely home of Jim & Ann in Truckee. Our group of 6 adults and 2 dogs had an extraordinarily wonderful post-Thanksgiving weekend. It was snowy outside, but oh-so-cozy inside with the wood-burning stove going. We ventured out a couple of times, but for the most party just stayed warm inside and played games, cooked, and enjoyed each other's company. We can't recommend staying here ENOUGH! So delightful.

Great house for a snow weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience from working with the owner to the great cabin. We arrived on a Friday afternoon. The driveway was clear and we were able to unload right in through the garage. The house was warm and clean. Beds were all made. We were 4 adults and 4 kids and our lab. Perfect size for us, but I wouldn't suggest having more than 8 guests total. The house was very cozy. Smaller than I expected, but again perfect size for us. There were plenty of towels, blankets, pillows and supplies. Check out was a breeze! Just did the dishes and called the property manager. No other cleaning necessary. Super easy!!

The location is great. Very close to Truckee and ski resorts. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, so were able to take our lab for an off-leash walk. She loved it!

Thank you Jim and Ann for sharing your home with us.

Lots of fun, great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about Casa Sierra. From the feeling of being a home away from home to the activities just a stones throw away from the house, our short 2 night trip couldn't have been better. It didnt hurt that there was an abundance of snow (about 3-4 inches overnight each night) but the kids used the large lot to build a snowman, make snow angels and do some sledding and the adults could watch from multiple vantage points inside the house. Once inside, the loft served as a defacto kids room with enough separation to enjoy a movie downstairs. Beds were super cozy and the kitchen served up enough space to have a couple of great meals. Wish we could have stayed longer but Casa Sierra will certainly be visited again especially during winter, perfect place when there is a bunch of snow.
