Enjoy sitting outside with gorgeous mountain views on either of our two outdoor decks. We recently expanded the back deck providing an outdoor entertaining area for dining, lounging, or parties.

Whether you decide to stay close to home or enjoy the surrounding areas, you will enjoy your stay and want to come back and repeat your stay again later in the season or the next year. Many of our renters come back regularly.

About The Owner

I grew up in Santa Clara Valley when there were alot less people and there was a lively agricultural orientation. I still live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have watched orchards give way to Silicon Valley. I love the innovation and energy here.

I enjoy all kinds of sports, but enjoy golfing the most. I work out regularly which includes cardio and weight training.

I am a business owner and also have a rental property in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, which I also advertise through VRBO. The listing number is 328460.

I enjoy renting our place and meeting people who rent from me. It makes me feel good that many of our renters come back consistently. I have been renting my home in Lake Tahoe (Truckee) for over 10 years. I take alot of care to ensure each renter feels at home and offer the kind of amenities that you will want.

I have an excellent property manager who has a very capable staff. We work hard to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We looked at many homes in the Lake Tahoe area before settling on our home in the Tahoe Donner area in Truckee.

It is a great break from the pace in Silicon Valley. I like Tahoe Donner for the many amenities it has. It has a wonderful mountain setting yet is close to Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake, skiing, golf. You can read more about the amenities of Tahoe Donner on our listing. Our home is like a home away from home.

There is lots to do in the Tahoe Basin. There are restaurants that range from very casual to fine dining. There are wonderful views and the sky is lit with stars that are very visible away from city lights.

I wanted a place that wasn't too far and a place where I could bring my family and friends. I love everything about the area. I find that no matter how short my stays there, it always seems like I have been gone for a while as I unwind.

What makes this house unique

Tahoe Donner offers many amenities including golf, tennis, a fitness center, multiple pools, an equestrian center, hiking trails, excellent cross country trails, a lodge that offers nice dining options along with a comfortable bar to name a few. These amenities are available not only to me and my guests, but also to my renters.

We have continued to upgrade and update our home to make it current. We have made many improvements in the last year, including new flooring in many of the rooms, new HDTV's, bedding, and an expanded back deck.

There is plenty of room for a large family or a couple of families to stay without feeling you are on top of each other.

Holiday Magic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had the BEST Christmas in this gorgeous home! Every need was anticipated~ I definitely won't pack as much next time. The property was immaculately maintained, and there was more than enough room for us all to spread out. The jacuzzi tub in the master bath was HEAVENLY after a long day's play in the snow. With three bathrooms, no one ever had to wait, and the bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The second living room/ den downstairs was fantastic~ it gave our children their own space in the morning to allow my husband and I a bit of a lie-in. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who wants to feel pampered and relaxed, it's a real gem! A big thanks to the owners, who made the rental process very easy and had lots of helpful tips on the local attractions. Our family spent our first Christmas away from home here, and we will always cherish the memories we made.

Great Family getaway in the snow!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had a another great vacation at this beautiful home. The place has all the amenities you will need to enjoy your stay. Plenty of room for more than the six people we had. Kids walked right out the back door and into the snow where there is lots of room to play, sled, snowball fight, etc... Also, your minutes away from great ski resorts, restaurants, bars, and stores if you need something. I even parked my Suburban in the garage! As I said.....lots of room!

We will definitely be back in 2014!

Great Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this mountain retreat! It wasn’t very long into our week that my children were calling it “home”. It’s tastefully and comfortably furnished with everything you can think of. Yet it is not so “plush” where you feel like you have to watch your kids all the time.

The bonus room was a perfect place for my son and daughter to pull out some toys. The large flat screen TV with cable in the living room was a plus for us as a family. A few times we enjoyed watching a movie after an active day out and about.

My wife and I especially loved taking advantage of the beautiful deck in the back. Surrounded by tall pines, it was a great place to read a book in the early morning with a cup of coffee or hang out as a couple at night after the kids went to bed. We had many of our meals on the deck and used the wonderful Weber BBQ. The deck furniture seemed brand new and was so comfortable. My wife and I wish we could transport it all to our own backyard!

We enjoyed a couple of the Tahoe-Donner amenities. My kids love swimming and we spent a fun afternoon at the large pool at the Trout Creek recreation center. We also spent half a day at the private beach at Donner Lake. There were lots of other families there and my children easily met other kids to swim with and play with. And it is such an awesome mountain lake setting!

We want to mention a good restaurant option, especially if anyone is gluten-free like my son. It is Best Pies in old town Truckee - They offer a wheat free pizza that is the best!

We had such an amazing, relaxing time that my family hated to leave. Special thanks to the owners!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend I stayed at this gorgeous cabin with 4 other ladies. It was the perfect weekend. The cabin provided plenty of space for all of us and had a the perfect living space for us to chat, play games and drink wine. The house provided us with a clean, cozy and comfortable place to catch up with friends. I definitely hope I get a chance to go back!

Sunny Tahoe Donner Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is positioned perfectly to take in the morning sun and also take in sunsets from the oversize decks. Fireplace heats up the upstairs very easily and is in a great spot. Flat screen TV's all over this home. Three bathrooms makes it handy for large groups. It could sleep a lot of people, not sure what the owner limit is. Wireless was handy for the little work I wanted to do and free long distance was a plus. It is a easy ride to town and golf is close by. I liked dropping in to Coyote Moon golf course for breakfast, less than 5 minutes away. Just a very relaxing place. Some days you just don't want to leave. We have stayed there a number of times and now it feels a little bit like coming home. You kind of instantly relax when you land there. Can't say enough about this home and I can't think of a down side. I will be back! Larry
