- english, french, german
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.
Jennifer purchased this House in 2003
Why Jennifer 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, in particular cross-country skiing and, in summer, enjoying the private beach club on Donner Lake.
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.

Beautiful home, beautiful views
This home was perfect for our family gathering! Plenty of room to spread out and relax.
I'm glad you found our home spacious and comfortable for your families. Thanks for your review.
Great family home
This home has an incredible view. It was the perfect home for our ski week, close to Tahoe Donner and a short drive to Northstar and Squaw. It provided a nice area in the front for the kids to play without being right on the road, we also found great sledding slopes in the back of the house. The upstairs is open and works great for a large hangout area. We love to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner stopped by once and was very nice, he communicated well via text during our stay. We are happy we found this home, it is on our "favorite" list.
Wonderful home for a cozy winter getaway!
The house was very spacious and comfortable for us - a group of 6 adults and our little kids. We used the shovels in the garage to make a little snow hill in the backyard and the kids had a blast sledding down on the saucers (also provided in the garage). The hot tub was kept very clean and was very relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of pots and pans and other cooking tools. And the views were spectacular!!
A nice holiday with the family
For our needs the cabin worked very well, great location with space around the cabin to play, and 360 degree views. Excellent weather made for fun times with the grandkids and easy travel....I suspect during a serious storm you had better be prepared for very difficult access as the cabin sits at the top of the hill and the roads are tight..... but once there its wonderful...Jennifer was very good with any needs we had and communicated very well throughout....cheers and Happy new year....
Great Christmas family retreat
Great location and views. Nicely furnished and decorated home all you need for a great family vacation. Jennifer does a great job with directions for use everything was very simple. Definitely would stay here again.
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.
