About Maureen Griffin White

We are an active family who loves coming to our Tahoe house. Sometimes we come up to take advantage of all the great recreational offerings in the Tahoe area. Other times I come up with girlfriends and we simply relax and take a break from our busy Silicon Valley lives.

Maureen Griffin White purchased this house in 1994

Why Maureen Griffin White chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We bought this property before we had children. We skied 2-3 times a month and knew we wanted a place of our own. Our family now comes often to enjoy both winter and summer activities.

What makes this house unique

Situated among the beautiful pine trees, we back up to an evergreen belt/national forest ensuring privacy. The house is well designed for either families or couples, with a great room suitable for children or entertaining. We also like the flat driveway during winter time, making it easy to get in and out.

Great house for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in the snow at the house. The house had everything that we needed with clear instructions as to how to turn everything on during are stay. The grand kids had so much fun walking out side to play in the snow and exploring around the house.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay :) The house was perfect for our two families! We had a blast with the sleds, the kids enjoyed the toys and we all really enjoyed the gas fire place! It was super easy to access the downhill skiing area and the snow play area from the house, less than a 5 minute drive! Easy to prepare meals and a well stocked kitchen!

A wonderful home in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the White House. It has a warm and cozy feel. Very close to town for a bite to eat or shopping and the many resorts are just a few stops away.

The open back with access to trails, provides a great escape...with views that are amazing.

The owners are very responsive, ensuring all the details are covered, so you can just relax and truly enjoy your get away.

We would definitely return!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Tahoe Donner for years with another couple and have stayed many places. We really enjoyed this house, because it is great for two couples because there is a queen size bedroom and bathroom on the main floor and the same again on the second floor, but it would also be great for families. We have a new granddaughter and will try to get up in the summer with our daughter's family because the house is baby proofed. It is in a easy to get to location and has a flat driveway and a two car garage. Since there was snow that weekend, we appreciated these amenities. The kitchen is well equipped. I left something in the house and the owner mailed it back to me. We will be back.

Fantastic Snow Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience, Maureen was very efficient, accommodating, and the place gave exactly what we needed: a cozy snow launching point, close access to Town and restaurants, proximity to cross country skiing, and downhill, and access to ad-hoc sledding and hiking out the back door. Our kids, 6 and 7 (first time snow experience) couldn't have been more enthralled. The wood fire place provided a cozy and very functional touch (was in the low 20's) and we we were warm. Thank you for the hospitality!
