About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Looking for a quiet, yet fun getaway? This is the place to be with tons of activities and possibilities. In the winter you can ski out the front door onto Tahoe Donner Ski Area and then ski back to the house, no need to drive. Or you can go to any of the nearby ski resorts such as: Sugar Bowl, Boreal, and Squaw Valley. Have kids? They can play in the snow just outside the front door or even create a sled hill on the side of the house. Other houses are a distance away so your really all by yourself. In the summer, you can bring your boat or jet skis and visit any of the local lakes, Donner, Prosser, etc. Fishing is only a cast away at all the lakes and Truckee river.

There are many trails nearby where you can take a hike, or even go for a horseback ride. The areas hills are also famous for bike riders and people who just love to walk. For all who love to gamble, Reno is just a half hour away where there are many casinos. Many golf attractions are nearby as well. For those who are just looking for a quiet getaway, you can make a nice fire in one of the outside chimneys or in the wood stove inside.

We will do ski leases for a month or two at a time depending on availability.

About The Owner

The owners are husband and wife who have a family who love the Truckee area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Truckee

This great house is located directly on the Tahoe Donner Ski Area.. We wanted an unique property that was away from other houses, allows our family to enjoy the outdoors year round. To ski we just put on our skis or snowboards and ski down to purchase the lift tickets and to return home we just ski to the house. What a great experience, no cars and anyone can go when they want or just sit out on the large deck that overlooks the ski area.

What makes this house unique

Skiing, hiking, bike riding, quiet, bright stars, beautiful and snowy days.... Spending time with friends and family in a beautiful setting.

Great ski getaway with the kids

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was nice and clean, the place had everything that we needed for a terrific stay in the mountains! Beds were nice and comfortable, and the kids loved the little beds in the loft area! The wide open spaces around the cabin made for great sledding and exploring for all, definitely a bonus of being right on the hill. Great views of the mountain from anywhere in the cabin, especially from the deck that looked out on the stars and ski cats in the morning. Would recommend this for anyone who has kids who are just learning to ski, super convenient to ski right from the front door!

Conveniently Located

  • 4 of 5

This place worked great - we wanted a place that we could take the dogs and be able to ski in and out and manage them. Our teens were are beginner skiers and Tahoe Donner is a great place to start out. I gave it 4 stars only because it is an older home. We were literally able to ski to and from the house and appreciated that convenience. Great wifi and tv too. And the house warms up nicely.

Lovely, cozy home - right on the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well appointed and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook a meal, with plenty of pots/utensils to spare. The heating system is efficient and the rooms stay warm and toasty. Fireplace was also easy to use. We are not experienced skiers so I was uncertain if we could really ski in and ski out. It was a piece of cake and tons of fun. The view is beautiful! Can't wait to go back!

Just as great as the last years we have stayed in this Cabin. Great location and new powder snow overnight didn't hurt!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went for the weekend, the place was very cozy, equipped with everything you might need and more. Loved the views from the back deck. The location was absolutely the best very close to North star, a ski slop in the back yard, close to all shopping and restaurants. Loved it.

Great family rental

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was awesome. Very cozy and plenty of room for a family. The views off the deck was great to wake up to each morning. Can’t wait to return.
