Vince Liotta purchased this House in 1984
Why Vince Liotta chose Truckee
We honeymooned in a mountain home in the Sierras, and wanted to keep that feeling alive. Every year we rented homes until we decided to build our own in a manner perfect for vacationers. We wanted plenty of bathrooms and we wanted the bathrooms to be able to accommodate people at the sinks while other are in the toilet/shower area. We wanted a large counter top for serving food in the kitchen/dining area with bar stools and a large eating area. We wanted a TV area with comfortable seating for many and the ability to watch TV from the kitchen/dining room. We wanted fast wireless internet throughout, an area where kids can play games away from the adults if they desired. We wanted very comfortable beds, two master bedrooms, a bedroom with a fireplace, a big garage, and parking area in the driveway for several vehicles. We wanted large decks for outdoor living with views of mountains and forestry. We chose this location and built this home to fulfill all these wants and more.
What makes this House unique
In the Spring, Summer and Fall we love sitting on the large deck in the back with the large pine trees, views of the forested mountain, and spectacular sunsets. We love the Pine ceilings and looking at the trees through the windows. We also love that our place is in a mountain wonderland with great hiking trails right out the back and very few automobiles and people; and yet is is only a few short miles from swimming/water sports, golf, tennis, and shopping. In the Winter we love that we can xcountry ski right out of our garage onto Tahoe Donner's great trail system and we can walk just one mile to the Tahoe Donner downhill ski area that is inexpensive and great for beginners. We also love that we can drive only 20 minutes to any of the big four ski areas: North Star, Squaw, Alpine, and Sugar Bowl. We also love the cozy gas fireplaces that provide lots of heat, are thermostatically controlled, and yet look like wood burning fireplaces.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Very nice place. Value for money
We booked this house at last minute for the weekend vacation. The price was very reasonable. The house was neat and clean. Lot of patio space and rooms spread across 3 floors. Kids enjoyed a lot and we had a very nice vacation.
Thanks for the nice review, it was great hosting you, and our cleaner appreciated that you left our place in very good condition.
Awesome convenient location
About a 30-45 minute drive from most resorts, it is a prime and quiet location for any family or party. The house is fully loaded with dishes, washer and dryer, and enough bathrooms for a large group of people. The only downside is the steepness of the driveway. A few of our cars needed to be parked at the bottom of it due to the iciness of the driveway but that cant be helped due to weather. All in all, it was a great place to stay and I'd recommend anybody to book this place if it is available.
Extremely Strict Cancellation Policy
My family and friends are from the Bay Area and we thought that this home would be the perfect place for our weekend getaway. Well, that was before a Blizzard arose in the forecast. Weather reports predicted low-zero visibility and urged drivers to stay off the roads. The hazardous weather conditions were in effect from Friday afternoon-Tuesday evening. Our reservation was for Friday and Saturday nights. We were not all able to take off from work to drive in the morning and if we had, we likely would have been snowed in and unable to leave for days after our planned stay. We were not willing to put our family’s safety at risk. We asked the owner if we could either get a refund or change our reservation to the next available weekend. Both requests were denied. To be fair, the cancellation policy does state “no refunds” and we received the cleaning fee back. I’m just very disappointed in the lack of understanding for this situation. An acception could have been made since we could not physically get to or have been able to leave the house during check-in/check-out. Now we are stuck with having to pick out another place and paying again so that our kids can have the snow vacation that they have been looking forward to. If you rent here during snow season, get travel insurance.
Yes, we do have a very strict cancelation policy, non refundable and non transferrable. This is how we keep our rates so low. We do not have to charge you more to make up for others who cancel. We also rent two condos at Squaw Creek, and those two groups both made it up there and back over the same weekend. Probably delays on both ends, but most people who rent in the Tahoe area in February are hoping for snow, and will go the extra mile to get up there and back safely. It may mean leaving early and coming back late, and taking 5 to 6 hours instead of 3.
The house has a lot of space.
We had an amazing vacation at the house. The house is very accommodating and everything is close. My children enjoyed. They are ready to come back.
Great house for weekend get away
This was a lovely house with a very livable layout that made the weekend really pleasant.
Great Property, Great Location
Home was just right for our group of 12. The main living area is bright and open with a wonderful gas fireplace/stove for ambiance and extra heat. This is where we spent most of our time. Beds and linens are great. Location is perfect for accessing Tahoe-Donner Ski Area. Not quite a walk to ski slope but close enough. Owner is a great communicator and instructions provided for the cabin were outstanding. Security deposit refund approved the same day we left.
