About The Owner

We are outdoor enthusiasts from the SF Bay Area who love all that the mountains and lakes have to offer - both in summer and winter. We are avid skiers and wanted to share this sport with our children. Our families bought this home together when our kids were just babies.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Truckee

We wanted a comfortable home where we could spend winter weekends with family and friends and have the space to hang out, relax, cook. We started out as 'winter people' with a love of Squaw Valley, but we soon discovered how great summer is, too. We enjoy taking advantage of the amenities and activities offered in Tahoe Donner. And, jumping off the rocks in Sand Harbor is a must-do summer family tradition.

What makes this house unique

Quite simply - we were overwhelmed by the setting of this brand new home. The views are breathtaking. It was love at first sight.

Map

In summer relax on the front or back decks and take in the view. Hiking and mountain biking trails start right down the street. In winter we have sledding and snow play right at the house.

Can't find a better place than this

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The pictures don't quite capture how nice the place is. When you walk in you are amazed at how much space there is and overwhelmed by the views. Everything was clean and in great condition, from the kitchen to the hot tub. Highly recommend! We will rent again.

Wonderful Tahoe vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This review is for two side-by-side houses:

We just finished another great weekend in Tahoe, despite the fact that there was no snow! Our group of friends has been doing an annual Tahoe weekend for about 10 years now, so we've seen a lot of houses. This pair of houses was the best we've seen and we're hoping to book it every year (or at least until one of us hits the jackpot and buys a 10-bedroom estate in Truckee!). As our group has transitioned from young married couples to families of 4, it's become increasingly difficult to find a house that can accommodate all of us. This side-by-side arrangement was perfect: 8 bedrooms for 8 families. In addition, the houses were both in immaculate condition and the kitchens were well stocked with nice cookware and cooking tools, plenty of dishware and utensils, toys and games for the kids, comfortable beds and linens, and killer views. The owner was also easy to work with over email. I highly recommend this house (unless you want it for the same weekend that we want it!).

Amazing Mountain Getaway for Families and Groups

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. It has just about everything you could ask for in a mountain getaway: gorgeous 360° views, tons of space for sleeping and hanging out, a great sound system, 3 patios (one with a hot tub), and easy access to downtown Truckee. It's always very clean, nicely decorated, and set up nicely for families and groups.

I've been booking the side-by-side chalets for group ski trips the last 5 years and couldn't be happier. Jennifer is responsive and a delight to coordinate with. The group always raves about how perfect the houses are for skiing, relaxing, cooking, dining, and hanging out as a group. I look forward to many more years visiting Jennifer's chalet.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered here for a long weekend and enjoyed the gorgeous views, walked in the quiet neighborhood, hot-tubbed, played games, and shared meals. The snow toys in the garage were helpful. Although this winter has been very light on snow, we found some at a higher altitude.The beds were very comfortable and the owners helpful and friendly.The house is a wonderful, welcoming place!

Great Christmas House

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week in the house and it was great. Very warm and inviting. Plenty of room for us; 2 families with six kids who had a ball playing in the snow and the hot tub. Close to a few different ski resorts (we skied Sugar Bowl which is great for beginners and won't break the bank). Great views out the front and back of the house.

The only thing to be aware of is, if like us you have a 2 wheel drive, you will definitely need chains getting up the drive if it's snowing (which we were told about beforehand).
