Why Heather M. chose Truckee

We purchased this home in the Tahoe Donner association because of its location and all the fabulous amenities for both adults and kids!

What makes this house unique

This home has a large fairly private lot! High up off of the main street, kids can play in the front and sled at the house. There are some decent hills on the side yard!

Slum lords, dusty, dirty dishes

  • 1 of 5

We got to the house and wasn't told we had to turn on the water. That should have been in the check in instructions. A fire alarm in the living room started bepping like the battery was low. I was told to get the ladder in the garage and to remove it. The house was dusty especially the kids room. I had to wipe it down because my son has allergies and was Snezzing. I asked if I could pay for a later check out because check out is 10. I was told I had to pay a full night at $275 to check out later then 10. Unbelievable! There is candles for a black out and note on a torn piece of paper saying you will be charged $20 if candles are used and there is not black out. We lost power at 2am on Sunday and I sent a message that we not be out by 10 because we have no power. We should have been given more time to check out. And was told the cabin was booked that day and the cleaning lady had to start cleaning.( But there was no power). And I was told I could book the cabin other night for a later check out. We go to Truckee every year and I have never had issues like this. Before I booked the cabin I sent a few messages and never got a response. Then I booked it and I was contact for them to tell me that they were going to charge me more for the cabin. There were dirty dishes that were put away. They charge a cleaning fee but give you list of things to do before you leave. And say they will charge more if the house is very dirty. The house allows 14 guest and there was one roll of toilet in the bathrooms and one extra for 3 day stay and 14 people. I will not recommended this place.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Overall this is a great property. It was not too far up Northwoods Blvd and there was plenty of room for our three families. The only difficulty we had was finding the driveway the first night.
