About Michael Grodin
We live in Silicon Valley, miles from fresh air, towering trees, and elbow room. For over 20 years, our family and extended family have made Truckee and the surrounding area our destination for our annual family vacations. We’ve rented in South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Truckee, Squaw Valley, Tahoe Donner, Donner Lake, Kings Beach, Incline Village, and yes even Reno. Each area brought unique experiences, but the common thread through all those rentals was that it was a vacation with the family.
Michael Grodin purchased this House in 2008
Why Michael Grodin chose Truckee
Tahoe Donner has something for everyone, of every age, for every single day of the year. “There’s nothing to do” is never heard when you vacation in Tahoe Donner.

Truly peaceful pines!
-Extremely clean and cozy place located in a quiet neighborhood. We were looking for a place to disconnect and just relax, this was perfect!
Beautiful cabin in great location
The place was great. Plenty of space and a warm fire made it extremely comfortable. The hot tub out back was perfect for relaxing after a days skiing.
Would highly recommend!
Relaxing in fresh mountain air
Very comfortable and welcoming. “Just like a home away from home”. Warm and cozy!
Close to downtown Truckee with shod and restaurants yet within a 30-40 minute drive to Kings Beach and Boca Reservoir.
A favorite was a picnic at the lake at Donner State Park and a walk on the lake trail.
Definitely a must: a visit to the Emigrant Trail Museum and Pioneer Monument which details the history of the Donner Party and the settlement of the Truckee valley
Loved Peaceful Pines - what a beautiful place!
We stayed at Peaceful Pines for a week while my parents were visiting. It was a very comfortable home nestled in the beautiful pines above Truckee. We saw deer daily and enjoyed watching all the wildlife around us. The home is well appointed and easily accommodated our family of 5. I highly recommend it!
Fantastic Mountain Getaway - Outstanding Property
Don't usually do reviews, but for Peaceful Pines I will...
This place is absolutely fantastic! It's a perfect mountain getaway. Amenities are too many to list, big screen TV's (2), Outdoor Hot Tub, Gas Barbeque, Hammock under the trees... Property is in perfect spotless condition. All appliances are new and modern, including a washer and dryer (great + for when your playing in the mountains). Location is perfect: golfing, tennis, lake activities are all within 5-10 minutes. Also 15 minutes from North Lake Tahoe (Kings Beach & Sand Harbor, both must see's). The neighborhood is very quite and perfect for evening or afternoon strolls. Downtown Truckee is just 5-minutes down the hill and is filled with quaint shops and a great mix of restaurants. Enjoyed several great meals including Dinner at Zano's (great pasta's and pizza w/huge portions), El Toro Bravo (great carnitas and margarita's) especially enjoyed Jack's On The Track's - featured in Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives (I'm a big fan) my Triple Decker Club Sandwich was fantastic. We also enjoyed a couple of great days at Donner Lake. The water is crystal clear, and we enjoyed kayaking along with some time on jet ski's and a ski boat as well. I'm just hitting on a few of the things we did over a few days, the opportunities and options are endless. Would recommend to all family, friends, ect. ect.. This place is exactly as advertised plus more.
Appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. Thank you.
Darling weekend getaway spot
My family and I traveled up to Truckee recently and loved our stay at Peaceful Pines. The place had plenty of space for our family and the location was convenient to town as well as Donner Lake. The owners were easy to coordinate with and we will definitely be coming here again soon!
Thank you. Hope to see you again soon.
Located on Tyrol Road near Glacer View Drive.
Other Activities: Golf and Tennis Lessons, private beach and marina
Golf: Tahoe Donner offers 18-holes of championship golf only minutes from the front door. Driving range, pro shop, lessons, and rentals are available. Several other courses are located within a 30 minute drive.
Ski: Just up the street you will find cross country and downhill skiing. There is also a snow play area that includes the equipment and fun. The area to the right of our house is flat, and with a little effort, you can make your own sled runs.
