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 Truckee
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.

Delightful, kid-friendly, cozy Tahoe-Donner home surrounded by the forest
This is an ideal Tahoe home, well maintained in a great location and even more comfortable than I expected. We spent a whole week enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and the pure silence in this part of Tahoe Donner, and on our more active days we were able to hit the slopes at Boreal in less than 20 minutes. We enjoyed cooking lots of meals in the fully appointed kitchen, and the kids (even a baby!) were safe and happy in this super-kid-friendly home, with games, kid utensils, high chairs, pak-n-plays, Netflix on the TV, and Tahoe-Donner's SnowPlay sledding area 5 minutes away. Maureen is very responsive and thoughtful owner. We would stay here again for sure.
Maureen's property is great, and hard to bet for the price. It was well stocked and accomodating for our group of 7. All the communications with the owner were prompt and detailed. Will certainly book again! Thank you!
It was a pleasure having you and your family/friends stay at our Tahoe Donner house over the New Year's Holiday. We look forward to you staying with us again. Here's to 2018 being much better than 2017 and bringing lots of snow.
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!
Great house for a family
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.
Thank you for the wonderful review. We enjoyed having you and your family as guests and look forward to you joining us again.
Absolutely everything we needed to be comfortable and happy... games, sleds, cooking spices, and more! Perfect home to spend time with our family :).
A wonderful home in the mountains!
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!
