Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

Our extended family bought this charming 3 bedroom, 3 bath home (sleeps 12) so that our parents could enjoy time with all their grandchildren (ages 4-13)! We designed a kid-friendly home that would grow as our kids grow, but always be a fun, safe environment for infants, toddlers, and young children.

Primarily reserved for family and friends, we rent our second home on a limited basis only, and treat the house as our second home, because that’s what it truly is! In Fall 2010 we replaced all the carpet, gave the home a new coat of paint, remodeled the existing bathrooms. In Fall 2011 we added a brand new 3rd bathroom. In Winter 2012 we remodeled the bedrooms. In Spring 2014 we remodeled the kitchen. The house is like new!

Set in the exclusive Tahoe Donner neighborhood, access to our home away from home includes all the amenities (seasonal and subject to closure without prior notice) of the Tahoe Donner Association, which includes:

Quarter mile from Tahoe Donner Downhill ski slopes. Considered a kid-friendly ski hill and “The Best Place to Begin”.

Central access to the best ski slopes in the North Lake Tahoe area such as Northstar, Squaw Valley USA, Alpine, Sugarbowl, and Boreal.

Enjoy all the amenities of the Tahoe Donner Association, including access to:

¨ Two Pools & Spas

¨ Golf Course & Tennis Center

¨ Private Beach at Donner Lake

¨ Equestrian Center

¨ Cross Country Center

¨ Alder Creek Campground

¨ Day Camps for Children

¨ Hiking Trails

¨ Minutes from Historic Truckee, outlet shopping, and fine dining.

¨ Convenient on/off access to I-80 freeway. Don’t fight the traffic coming up from Lake Tahoe!

30 minutes from Lake Tahoe's North Shore.

Details: The unit includes 2 car garage, washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, gas burning stove, electric range & oven, microwave, cable TV, DVD/VCR, stereo, and wi-fi access.

Sorry, no smoking and no pets. You bring your own sheets & towels please.

About The Owner

Family of five from the Bay Area in Northern California. We bought our home in Truckee to create lasting memories with our kids and friends!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

TahoeDonner is the perfect place to have fun with your families. So many things to do, and our house is right in the center of the action!

What makes this house unique

Our home is truly our HOME. We are not a professional property management company, so when you stay at our home, you get the feel of a real home. Please note, if you are looking for a five-star experience, look somewhere else. But if you are looking for a home that is used and loved, look no further!

Perfect kid friendly house convienently located!

  • 5 of 5

We went to a wedding in the Tahoe/Truckee area and this house was perfect for three couples and four kids. The pictures do not do the bedrooms and layout justice. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, the rooms were all bigger than we expected and the layout really worked for everyone to have quiet areas to nap, or play, or hang out outside. It has a great amount of space, had almost everything we needed to cook meals (bring spices and oils if using) and worked out really well to relax and enjoy our mini-vacation. It was very helpful to have hooks, tables, and mantels everywhere so that there was always a place to put things. The dining room table was awesome to be able to expand easily, there were plenty of dishes and utensils so that we did not have to worry about cleaning things right away. It was so nice to have plastic dishware for the kids and plenty of pots and pans to cook with. The deck was great, and having extra chairs to sit outside. It was helpful to have multiple entrances to the house and easy access to everything you need. The park down the street was awesome for the kids, the golf course had a great lunch and overall the area that the house was located in was perfect to be able to access everything we needed. (The reception we went to at Alder Creek Nature Center was a two minute drive.) Even for being a busier street, we could not hear anything and the house it set back far enough that you can still play in the front and have plenty of room to run around. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area! Thank you for letting us stay at your house, we certainly enjoyed it!

Cute, Compfortable and Cozy

We had a wonderful stay and the house is in a great location, and everything you need for a relaxing vacation. our only complaint is we wanted to stay longer. Work always gets in the way of vacation time. I highly recommend this house.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. The location was perfect for us (close to ski areas and close to the rec center and sledding) and the house was just what we needed: cozy and clean with enough space for family life. We would rent it again! Thanks so much.

Magical days

  • 4 of 5

We had three families celebrating New Year together. Everybody found a spot to their liking to sleep, have fun or rest. We loved how the house heats up evenly and have everything one needs to feel at home. Personally, I loved how the documentation, instructions and signage were organised. They were very thorough and with a delicate sense of humour. Highly recommend this house.

Awesome location for recreation and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this house a couple of times over the last year and would highly recommend to my friends. Owners are great and have created a warm and inviting environment. Close to any and all outdoor activities you could want, and not too far from town for groceries, restaurants, and other shopping. For those who need their Starbucks fix, they have one of those too. The downtown area has lots of boutique style shops and a few venues for wine tasting. Had a great time! Thanks again!
