About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our home is located on a quiet street in Tahoe Donner. This house is great for families with school-aged kids. We have board games, puzzles, high-definition TV, DVDs and a GameCube with several games to choose from. The two-car garage has saucers and sleds for snow play. A gentle slope behind the house is great for sledding with young children so there's no need to get in the car and drive to a snow play area.

Upstairs, you will find the great room, kitchen, dining area, master suite, and guest bathroom.

The great room features a wood stove, two couches, a large screen TV, high-definition cable TV receiver, Blu-Ray & DVD player, Nintendo GameCube, and iPod player.

The kitchen is fully stocked with needed cookware and spices, electric stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker & grinder, and plenty of counter space and dishes.

The large master suite has a king bed and attached private bathroom with two sinks, a shower, and a large bathtub.

There are two bedrooms and a full bathroom downstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed. The other 'kids bedroom' has a bunk bed and a day bed plus trundle - sleeping up to 4 people. The downstairs bathroom has a bath tub with a shower over the tub.

Linens and bath towels are provided. A washer and dryer are available in the house.

Driveway snow removal service is provided once per day when new snow has fallen.

Tahoe Donner is a wonderful, mountain resort community with its own small downhill ski area, cross country ski center, sledding hill, small market/deli, and the Trout Creek Recreation Center. Trout Creek offers a hot tub, heated pool, fitness center, saunas, and a health spa. Tahoe Donner also features a tennis center, equestrian center, 18-hole golf course, driving range, a pizza pub and The Lodge restaurant and bar. Guests may also use a private beach and marina on Donner Lake during summer months.

Tahoe Donner is located north west of central Truckee. It is 5-7 minutes drive to downtown shopping and restaurants, and 15-30 minutes to major ski resorts including Northstar at Tahoe, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl. Rental includes guest access cards for the Tahoe Donner amenities. A nominal charge applies for some activities.

Tahoe Donner also offers miles and miles of hiking and biking trails.

About Daryl

Like many visitors to the Lake Tahoe area, we live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a family who enjoys skiing, hiking, bike riding, golf, tennis, and other outdoor activities. We enjoy using this vacation home whenever we are able and are happy to share it with others who appreciate the great outdoors as we do.

Daryl purchased this house in 2009

Why Daryl chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We love to ski in the winter and we like that Tahoe Donner is conveniently located to so many world-class ski resorts. Tahoe Donner has great amenities for the summer as well, not to mention its proximity to Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

This home is on a particularly quiet street in Tahoe Donner, well away from the traffic noise of Northwoods Blvd. All of the following amenities are within 1 mile of our property: recreation center and swimming pool, tennis center, golf course, driving range, snow play area, The Lodge restaurant and bar, Pizza on the Hill restaurant, small convenience store with groceries, beer, & wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely enjoyed your cabin. We commented that if we owned a place in Tahoe, we'd want it to be just like yours. It was a great layout - spacious and comfortable. I certainly will keep your place in mind for our next visit and would recommend it to others.

Wonderful Property in a Great Location with a Superb Owner

  • 5 of 5

Just 2 of us spent 4 very enjoyable days in this superbly configured, maintained and managed home.

We were immersed in QUIET for our entire stay but also appreciated the easy access to the Tahoe - Donner facilities, Donner State Park, downtown Truckee and several nearby golf courses.

Daryl, the owner, was a delight to work with from day 1. He is rightfully proud of his property and most impressive with the level of detail and concern he showed in assuring we had all the information needed to ensure our stay went well.

We thank him very much and you will too; we look forward to returning!

Very comfortable & clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

We selected this cabin to enjoy the last of the Truckee snow in April. My husband was able to work remotely from the cabin all day Friday while my kids and I played out back in the snow. It was clean, tidy, and incredibly comfortable. I slept REALLY well in the master bedroom (which is incredibly huge) and our kids enjoyed the bunks and daybed downstairs. There were lots of board and card games for us to play together. The kitchen was perfectly stocked: not too much and not too little. We had everything we needed. The dishwasher was impressive (and quiet). TV and internet worked without issue. We enjoyed having a fire going as well. We brought up a lot of the disposable stuff (paper towels, TP, handsoap) only to find some extras already there (not always a guarantee, but in our case, we didn't have to use our own).

We hit the Safeway twice and went for a drive to Pyramid Lake for a day trip on Saturday. Also got a cup of coffee at the bagel shop next to Safeway which was wonderful to have since we hadn't bought coffee yet.

Great communication from the owner.

No complaints! Hope to go back again.

Fantastic for our ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our weekend. We had two families (four adults and three kids) and this was the perfect setup, location and stocked kitchen for the weekend. Daryl was great at communicating before, during and after the weekend and made sure we had everything we needed. I would certainly recommend the cabin and will likely rent it again.

Found this on a last minute rental and we were all very happy with the property. Daryl was great and discussed everything with us, going over everything over the phone. The property was clean and great.

Wonderful winter escape

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a wonderful location in the Truckee Donner neighborhood with close proximity to Truckee and surrounding ski resorts.

The house is spacious with all require necessities. Clean and we'll maintained. Kitchen stocked with, spices, utensils and daily use items. Ample room for a large family or several couples.Good collection of DVD covering all tastes and complimentary Wii that took care of the kids when the weather was rough.

Only comment regarding the used bathroom soaps and shampoos - should be new and sealed.

Wonderful experience - comfy, spacious, clean and in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were looking for a last-minute Tahoe rental for 4th of July weekend and were very lucky to find this one. It was super clean and very spacious with the high ceilings and large rooms. We had six people staying here and there was plenty of room for everyone to hang out. We really liked how big the kitchen was too and it was stocked with everything we needed - olive oil, flour, spices, containers and ziplocs, etc. The porch area is nice and has a pretty view of the forest and is the perfect place to walk out and see the stars at night. We enjoyed the random collection of DVDs and watched the old-school ski films and The Princess Bride. We did experience some issues with the Wifi being slow, but it usually resolved itself. The location was great, we really enjoyed the downtown Truckee area and nearby Donner Lake. It's also only a short distance from Lake Tahoe - it took us about 15-20 minutes to reach the King's Beach area. Highly recommend for a Tahoe getaway that's outside all the craziness of South Lake Tahoe, but still in a beautiful setting.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review. The week after your stay, we upgraded the Internet cable modem in the house, so in theory we should be able to get higher speeds from our Internet provider now. That said, Internet service in the Truckee area is notoriously slow on holiday weekends because there are so many visitors in town.. and they're all posting vacation photos or they're streaming movies to their vacation rental TV sets. :-)
