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 Truckee
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. Truckee Registration Certificate #1156

Great house for extended family
Had a great stay for a long ski weekend. Great layout for our family of four plus mom/son. Kitchen was nicely equipped for cooking. Not brand-new but very comfortable, like a classic Tahoe home. Kids LOVED playing in the snow on the gentle hills surrounding the house!
Great Hosts, Lovely Home
The home was very well stocked, plenty of pots, pans, seasonings, and everything else for preparing a home cooked meal! Beds were comfy, rooms even had humidifiers that was a great surprise. Only thing recommended to bring is shampoo and conditioner, everything else was all there. There was a city wide power outage our first night and Ann responded to calls and texts at 7am in the morning. Would highly recommend and look forward to another visit.
Another Fantastic Vacation
This was our third consecutive holiday at Casa Sierra, and it didn't disappoint. It's become a favorite tradition of ours, and we all feel like we're "coming home" when we arrive at the house. Thank you, Jim & Ann, for yet another wonderful experience! Happy Holidays!
Very cozy cabin with all the amenities needed for a snowy family weekend.
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.
Thanks so much for the kind comments.
We hope you join us again and we surpass your expectations again .
Beautuful home. So very comfortable for family with children!
My family and I had our first white Christmas at this wonder home! The kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed the quite of the neighborhood! I would go back again and again! Kevin and his mom were a pleasure to work with! Thank you again for a memory of a lifetime!
Another Wonderful Winter Getaway
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.
We are so pleased that you visited Casa Sierra again. We strive to make our home as comfortable and attractive as possible and love that the location in Truckee was available for travels in the area.
Great outdoor open space with family sledding hill behind the house. Beginner Ski Hill at Tahoe Donner 5 minutes away. Check out the Tahoe Donner website.
