Ski, Hike, Golf, Sail, Dine, Ride, Relax. It all starts here, right in the heart of Tahoe Donner.

Nestled in the pine trees, this beautiful house has everything you need, and all the extras that make your stay in the mountains memorable. Kids friendly amenities make your vacation with children easier and joyful. New whole house force-air heating system keeps you comfy and warm.

House has a level driveway (easier to get in and out in winter). When you enter the house, you will find spectacular vaulted ceilings and a gorgeous thermostat-controlled fireplace. Abundant sunlight shine through the large windows. There is a large dining table in the dining room. A large deck off the dining room for you to enjoy the forest views. Kitchen is fully stocked for you to prepare delicious meals for family and friends.

We know a good night’s sleep is essential to your family (like ours). That is why we furnished our bedrooms with Simmons Beautyrest mattresses from Macys and mattress pads for additional comfort and protection. New Kenmore washer and dryer, new refrigerator. Newly remodeled bathrooms. Extra soft blankets and extra soft towels. Everything that matters to us, we have it for you to enjoy.

Loads of toys for you and your little ones to enjoy. Whether you want to build a lego city, a railway, or, simply make cheerful music, you can find it upstairs in the play area.

Great rental for families

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this house for a weekend away with our teenagers and were delighted by the floor-plan, amenities and location of this house. The living area is open and the loft is conducive to family time by keeping everyone closer than if they were in their own rooms. There were 2 private rooms downstairs, but we opted to have half of the kids share the spacious loft which worked nicely. The yard was perfect for snow-play and the driveway was nicely plowed when we arrived.

It's located in a quiet neighborhood and at times I was self-conscious that our laughter might bother the neighbors since the neighborhood is so quiet, which was very relaxing. We didn't see any neighbors all weekend, but we did see the occasional car drive by and we even saw one pulling someone on an inner-tube (not a good idea). An officer soon stopped by to ask us if we were the ones sledding in the street, we weren't, but it was nice to know we were safe in a well-policed neighborhood where neighbors look out for one another.

The beds were very comfortable with plenty of fluffy pillows and there were fresh clean towels in the nicely remodeled bathrooms.

The owner was also very responsive throughout the transaction and the price is fair.

Great affordable rental, especially for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 children under 7 and finding a place that will work for us is not always easy. The huge loft area with the king bed, bunk beds and collection of books and toys was perfect for the kids both day and night. It was a welcome plus to have bedding and towels provided. Liz (owner) was great to work with and provided various recommendations for kid-friendly activities. We had a great experience and will certainly stay here again.

Excellent Tahoe stay

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family (with 2 small kids) up to Tahoe-Donner for the weekend. Perfect place to stay. Accurate description. Close to everything and lots of toys upstairs for the kids to play. Everything was very clean and neat. Owners were a pleasure to work with--great communication. Would definitely stay again,

Convenient and Great For Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time relaxing by the fire looking out the wall of windows watching our two young boys playing outside for hours on the huge snow bank (bring saucer sleds!). The upstairs king bed was super comfortable, and the all toys were also a big hit and much appreciated. The location was convenient to town and all the amenities of Tahoe Donner, and on a street without much traffic. We loved the cross country area. Overall a very good value.

Great place for 2 families to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property for Presidents Day weekend and had a great time! The place was super clean. The kids loved the bunk beds (there are two sets of them). They loved playing with the legos and monopoly. The location was excellent. The bathrooms are very nicely renovated.

Comfortable Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. We had two families and had plenty of room. The property was clean, well-appointed and accurately described. The beds were comfy and warm. The shared living space and kitchen were beautiful with room for everyone.

The location was convenient for us as we had beginners learning to ski at Tahoe Donner downhill as well as cross-country skiers who enjoyed the Tahoe-Donner XC ski area. The location was also convenient to Truckee and I-80.

Thanks again
