Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe Donner has many family-friendly amenities, such as golf, horseback riding, swimming, skiing, tubing and sledding. It is closer to the Bay Area, Sacramento and Reno than most other Tahoe areas, with shorter driving distances from the airports in Sacramento and Reno, but is still part of the lovely Tahoe area. Our family has been gathering from all over the country in the Tahoe area since the mid-1990s, and we decided to buy a house together in Tahoe Donner to share family vacations (both winter and summer) every year.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located in the low-snow area of Tahoe Donner, so winter access is easier even when the fresh snow is at its best! The driveway is also flat and plowed during the winter. We are willing to provide guest cards to access the Tahoe Donner amenities such as the swimming pool and fitness center as well as the Tahoe Donner beach on Donner Lake. Hiking trails are accessible at the bottom of the street, just a few houses away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steven's place was very spacious with lots of sleeping areas. The location in Tahoe Donner was perfect for my group's stay. The two lounge areas (upstairs and downstairs) were great to accommodate our group!

Overall , okay

  • 4 of 5

The great room was so hot even with the AC & fans on. One of the bathrooms upstairs was leaking causing the kids to go sleep somewhere else. Left a message it seems message was not received. Inconvenient for other guests to use bathrooms downstairs since we did not want the leak to get worst.

Big home, owner very responsive

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house. Lots of board games and VHS to keep us entertained at night! Also loved how many bathrooms + bedrooms there were for the price. The owner was very responsive when we had a hot water issue.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this house. It was a really nice size for our large group (16) and the downstairs playroom allowed the kids to play independently. Great location and great house. We would definitely rent it again. One small recommendation to the owner....a whole house fan to help cool the house in the evenings.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Lake Tahoe and this home was perfect. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate our group! The house was stocked with everything that we needed. Our teenagers loved playing ping pong! There was plenty of space to hang out. It was a really warm week while we were there and though there is no air conditioning, there were fans and we opened the windows at night to cool off. We spent the day at the Lake so it was not a problem. The owner was great to work with and we had a wonderful stay! Thank you!

Enjoyed the stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a soccer team of girls and a few moms stay in the house. It was very comfortable for us as the house had 4 bathrooms and so many beds for our group. Steve, the owner, had lots of recommendations for our team bonding experience - hiking, bocce ball, etc. We would stay again.
