About The Owner

We are an active family with 2 young boys, and enjoy quality time together with our extended family. We spend as much time as we can enjoying our mountain home while taking advantage of all of the local hiking, biking and skiing!

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe Donner is fabulous for families!

What makes this house unique

Our backyard is phenomenal, with great sledding in the winter and the gorgeous Alder Creek is at the foot of our backyard. It's a great place for the kids to play, build forts, fish and explore. There are incredible hiking trails that leave right from our yard!

Wonderful high-end home in Tahoe Donner

We enjoyed a great weekend here with two families. Large, well-designed and fully equipped, this was a comfortable and welcoming place to relax. Lovely views across the valley, great kitchen, and a cosy seating area. Thank you!

Great for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We (hubbie & me, 2 dtrs & sons-in-law, and 3 grandkids) just spent 5 nights here for our Christmas getaway. Such a well-cared for property with plenty of room for everyone! It is so well-equipped, it feels much more like staying in someone's home than strictly a rental. The kitchen is large enough for several people to be working at once (which is always nice when cooking for a crowd) & equipped with everything you could want (including many spices & condiments, which was real surprise!) The kitchen also has huge windows which overlook a beautiful view - providing a perfect white Christmas. Everyone had their own space, with room to spare. The mud-room entry from the garage worked out very well as a place to gear up/down with all our winter clothing. Books, games, puzzles, sleds, wi-fi, hot tub, etc. provide plenty to keep people occupied. And the cozy fireplace living room is very comfy! Thanks for our wonderful Christmas memories!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times at this wonderful cabin. It's four bedrooms comfortably fits several families - and also has an open room downstairs that has two sets of bunk beds for the kids. The home is warm and welcoming with a cute cabin atmosphere. The kitchen is well-equipped and has big open windows with a view of the back porch and beautiful backyard. The kids love to play for hours in the backyard, which has a hill to sled on, a little creek, and trails to walk through the trees behind the homes. For outdoor adventurers, there are nearby sledding hills, and great hiking and cross country trails. It's only around 15 minutes from the historic Truckee downtown shops and restaurants. This is our home away from home!

Great family home!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 families with kids) spent a few days here over ski week. The house was great. Each family could have their own floor with plenty of room to spread out! Loved all the king bed options for adults and twins for kids.

The house was well stocked with everything that one could need! The hot tub and sledding hill in the back were great additions!

Loved this home and would rent again!

Pick this place!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cabin because of it's proximity to Sugarbowl. The house was a great choice for us because of the number of beds the house offers. I was pleased to find the kitchen stocked so well, to allow for easy meal prep. Also, there were many extra blankets stored in closets, which is always nice when you are traveling with children. The house is well-maintained, very clean and very family friendly. We had a lot of fun sledding out the back of the house!

If I were to travel to Tahoe again, this house would be my first pick for lodging. Thank you to the homeowners for keeping it so meticulous!
