Property description

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.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Prop Fee (Nonrefundable) $175 + tax
  • Tax Rate 12%

Notes:

Rates subject to change without notice.

By law, we are required to assess a 12% tax on all short-term rentals:

The Town of Truckee requires that a transit occupancy tax of 10% be assessed on rental and cleaning fees to all rentals of 30 days or less. We must charge you directly and are not allowed to absorb the cost for you or include it as part of our rent. (Truckee Municipal Code 3.24.050). Truckee TOT Reg. No. 443.

The Town of Truckee also assesses a 2% tax for the benefit of the Truckee Tourism Business Improvement District (TTBID), which is used to enhance the experience of visitors to the Town of Truckee.

If you are renting a unit in Truckee that does NOT charge you this tax, they are out of compliance with the law.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

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!

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
