Snowy Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was perfect for what we needed. We have 3 boys (2 under the age of 5), and the ability to walk to the Lodge and slopes was just what we needed. Tahoe Donner is perfect for Beginner/Intermediate skiers. The place was clean and Homey. The amenities were great. We took advantage of the rec. area complete with Sauna and Pool table. Everything you could need for a single family. We will return!

Great family condo right at the slopes

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little getaway condo! Scott was very quick to respond to emails. We came with our 3 kids for 4 days of skiing over New Years, and couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodations. The condo was a short walk to the slopes, which came in handy with 3 young beginners. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need (except, of course, you have to bring your own food). The condo was very clean, had an efficient cozy wood burning stove with plenty of fire wood, and there was a washer/dryer plus second half bath. It was perfect for a family of 5. In addition, Tahoe Donner is a great place for kids to learn how to ski, with reasonable prices and easy learning hills. And the clubhouse was fabulous and an easy walk, there was a lot of fun stuff to keep the kids entertained. To top the week off, there was was a light show on the slopes (kids older than 10 can participate) followed by a surprisingly bigger than expected firework show for New Years Eve (starting around 7 o'clock, so good for young families). And, if you get a chance, grab breakfast at Marty's Cafe in Truckee, it's really good. We had a lot of fun and will definitely be coming back to this condo.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was perfect for our family of four. The condo was clean and well maintained. Even had toys my five year old kept busy with. Walking distance to the slopes and a very nice and quiet area. Scott was extremely responsive and any questions we may have had were answered in a welcome document he emailed to us before our arrival.

We would love to come back in the summer to check out some of the warm weather amenities.

A cozy gem

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here over Xmas with wife and two young kids (6 and 4).

We chose it because it was walking distance from the bottom of the ski slope & lodge etc... Even in ski boots, I can deal with walking 100 yards!

But the bonus feature was the true coziness of the place. Base-board heating is far superior to the forced air I have suffered at other Tahoe rentals (the air is dry enough!). The real fireplace is the enclosed "stove" type. Simple to light and no worries about smoke or dampers or spitting and the heat is even controllable. As if that wasn't enough, the bathroom floors have under-tile heating. This was an early Xmas gift for my wife!

The two bedrooms / bathrooms are on a mezzanine (so only a few stairs) so it feels roomier than it actually is. We could easily have accomodated an additional couple/grandparents as the kids room has bunk beds and a regular queen size. However, if you plan to do this, note that there is only space and chairs for 4 around the dining table.

Pleasant, modern furnishing and decor rounded it off nicely. We felt like we were guests in a genuine family home.

So leave the hubbub of the slopes behind and within moments be back in your own cozy and private family world. Knock up a hearty meal, then enjoy the warmth and therapeutic glow of the real fire long into the evening.

Very nice condo at the ba...

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo at the base of the ski hill. Nicely decorated and enough room for 7. Used the fireplace every day. Enjoyed using the jacuzzi, pool table and game room for the condo complex.

For those looking for a good ski hill for kids, I highly recommend Tahoe Donner. All runs end at the same general area so you don't spend all your time looking for the kids. The terrain on the upper hill was perfect for our 10 year old snowboarder. Our 4 year old skier spent about half his time in the snowflakes ski school ($60/ half day) and the other half with us. We were lucky enough to get snow 4 days straight so there was consistantly knee deep powder off the groomed runs. Eat lunch at the lodge or back at the condo. Although it is a very small mountain, we have been coming back for the last 3-4 years and will continue to do so.

Had a great time overall and will probably come back to check out the hiking and mountain biking in the summer.
