Relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

This home clearly provided the best comfort & fun of any home we have stayed in the Tahoe area over the past 6 years. A large family will have plenty of space. The kitchen is so fully equipped that any foodie would be ecstatic! Despite the limited snow fall there was enough for sledding in the home's yard, and initial skiing and snowboarding lessons were just 10 minutes away. In 5 minutes you could be at the community store for quickly needed items or in 15 minutes you could be in North Truckee for a Safeway or Rite Aid and other local stores. Last, but certainly not least, this home's view is spectacular!

The home was fully stocked with everyday items you might find in your full time home ie., a slow cooker, all types of glass ware and stemware. The open floor plan allowed the family plenty of space and yet never were we far apart. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and fully stocked. We never had to go out to get items for everyday living other than food. The views of the mountains each morning from the front deck and kitchen window was breathtaking. The home has a full 2 car garage which was very convenient for the cold nights.

As this home is at a higher elevation any noise and traffic is basically non existent. Star gazing was fantastic during our stay. The gas fireplace was beautiful and only needed for giving you the feeling of additional relaxing comfort. We never used the pool table as we kept so busy doing other things in the Donner Truckee area. Next time the pool table will be the first thing we use. It was a pleasant surprise that even during the cool nights the home kept you warm and comfortable at low heat settings and yes plenty of hot water for bathing and showers.

In summary everyday we felt comfortable and happy in this beautiful home.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was an outstanding few days with our family. A bit challenging getting everyone there, but the grandchildren had a wonderful time. The area is amazing and the home was perfect for our needs. It was disappointing that the decks were unusable because of old snow and the fireplace did not work. After a very long tiring day of travel for all of us, I have never rented a place where we were expected to make up the beds before we retired that night. I would never have even thought to ask about that. Not happy about making all those beds. Sledding hill great, wonderful home for family vacation. Perfect view.

My family and I loved this place. The house is perfect for a big family. The views are beautiful and this house has everything you need to have a great time. Becky was amazing and let us check out later than we had too. This gave us time to enjoy breakfast a play a little longer in the snow. We will definitely come back here next year!
