Property description

We bought our 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo (sleeps 6) when our twin girls were two years old so they could grow up enjoying mountain life. We designed a kid-friendly condo that would grow as our kids grow, but always be a fun, safe environment for infants, toddlers, and young children.

Primarily reserved for family and friends, we rent our second home on a limited basis only, and treat our condo as our second home, because that’s what it truly is!

Set in the exclusive Tahoe Donner neighborhood, access to our home away from home is designed to be our refuge in the mountains away from the distractions of everyday life. While TahoeDonner offers a range of amenities, we have no cable TV -- on purpose! We use our home as a way to spend time with our family (We did recently add WiFi access)

Subject to seasonal closures, amenities include all that Tahoe Donner has to offer:

¨ 50 yards from Tahoe Donner Downhill ski slopes. Considered a kid-friendly ski hill and “The Best Place to Begin”.

¨ Central access to the best ski slopes in the North Lake Tahoe area such as Northstar, Squaw Valley USA, Alpine, Sugarbowl, and Boreal.

¨ Pools & Spas maintained by TahoeDonner Association (NOTE: The common pool maintained across the street by our HOA is not heated and is not available to renters)

¨ Golf Course & Tennis Center

¨ Private Beach at Donner Lake

¨ Equestrian Center

¨ Cross Country Center

¨ Alder Creek Campground

¨ Day Camps for Children

¨ Hiking Trails

¨ Minutes from Historic Truckee, outlet shopping, and fine dining.

¨ Convenient on/off access to I-80 freeway. Don’t fight the traffic coming up from Lake Tahoe!

30 minutes from Lake Tahoe's North Shore.

Details: The unit includes 1 car garage, washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, wood burning stove, electric range & oven, microwave, TV with DVD/VCR, stereo. We have wifi access, but NO CABLE TV. We have a Roku and tons of DVD's, but recommend you bring board games or a deck of cards, and rediscover your family!

Sorry, no smoking and no pets. You provide your own sheets and towels.

**NOTE: Renters have access via guest cards to all the amenities offered by the TahoeDonner Association (see all amenities and availability at: www.tahoedonner.com). Additional per usage fee required for guests. However, the common area clubhouse across our street has recently been restricted to OWNERS only, so we are no longer able to provide access to the HOA clubhouse across the street from our condo. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Mngment Fee (No Refund) $150 + tax
  • Tax Rate 12%

Notes:

Rates subject to change without notice.

By law, we are required to assess a 12% tax on all short-term rentals:

The Town of Truckee requires that a transit occupancy tax of 10% be assessed on rental and cleaning fees to all rentals of 30 days or less. We must charge you directly and are not allowed to absorb the cost for you or include it as part of our rent. (Truckee Municipal Code 3.24.050). Truckee TOT Reg. No. 443.

The Town of Truckee also assesses a 2% tax for the benefit of the Truckee Tourism Business Improvement District (TTBID), which is used to enhance the experience of visitors to the Town of Truckee.

If you are renting a unit in Truckee that does NOT charge you this tax, they are out of compliance with the law.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
