About Tan Nguyen

It's always our dream to own a vacation home in the Tahoe Truckee area surrounded by beautiful forests and serene lakes in the close vicinity and to share it with you. We've lived in the Bay Area for more than 20 years and always enjoy traveling to Tahoe to ski 15 plus trips a year and vacationing through out the year doing a lot of outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking,hiking and soaking in hot springs.

Tan Nguyen purchased this house in 2012

Why Tan Nguyen chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

It is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with brand new kitchen, stainless steel appliance for your enjoyment and convenience. It is right across from serene Donner lake with clear water and beautiful weather in the summer, perfect for swimming on a hot day or fishing trips that perhaps you are always want to plan for.

Also perfect location for winter fun, only 10-15 minutes away from most of the major ski resorts, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, and close to two great places for beginner skiers are Donner Ski Ranch and Soda Springs. Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City is about 30 minutes away.

Don't forget about hiking through the trails at Truckee, or biking along the Truckee river---peaceful ride through nature. We discovered Treetop Adventure Park at Granlibakken Conference Center & Lodge, a fun rope course-ziplines place for the whole family, now also at Squaw Valley rope courses.

What makes this house unique

Close to ski resorts, right across the beautiful Donner Lake, easy access to all Lake Tahoe and Reno entertainment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had great time at your Donner Lake house again, although it was a little cooler than last year, especially in the afternoons when the breezes strengthened. What a nice place you have! Thanks again,"

The house is very clean. I smelt the towels and linen and it was fresh. We stayed at a condo and the linen and towels smelt dirty and dusty. We brought our own sleeping bags just in case. We used our own stuff but if we didn't have anything I felt at easy to use their linen. Very close to everything.

Awesome Family Birthday Celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed to host my husband's milestone birthday for our entire family. We found it very clean and well stocked with kitchenware, bedding and games. It is well situated along the lake with a small convenience/grocery store nearby. We found the owners extremely polite and helpful in answering all our questions and concerns before and after our stay. Thank you so much!

Excellent Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Amazing weekend. The cabin was immaculately clean and organized. Very spacious, plenty of sleeping spaces and 3 bathrooms. Cabin was stocked with everything you would need to have a great time in winter or summer. Very close to lake, nice view of lake, and very close to a store and downtown Truckee with restaurants and bars. My friends and I enjoyed the cabin very much and would recommend it to any family or group of friends who is who is looking for a nice house to stay in on the lake. My friends and I took walks around the neighborhood in the snow, made a snowman, and had dinner at a nice restaurant in town. Very nice and accommodating owners also, made trip very easy.

Rocklin, California

rented as a summer getaway from Sacramento heat

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated home with plenty of sleeping space and conveniently located next to what looked to be the only market on the lake. Only drawback was very little water view but the location is within easy walking distance to public docks and/or public beach. Extremely clean and plenty of amenities. Would definitely recommend, particularly if you want something very close to the water but don't want to pay an arm and a leg for a waterfront location.

This home exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect being close to everything including walking to the local market and best cafe- access to the town of truckee and other services were excellent as well. We needed to put together a family dinner for about 50 at Donner Lake and the preperations were made so much easier having such excellent and easy access . The home is equipped with all amenities, ugraded, modern and clean. It was also well designed and very nicely decorated. The owners were extremely easy to work with.
