About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a beautiful mountain home in the High Sierras, nestled at approximately six-thousand feet. Our home is located within the Tahoe Donner Association. We offer unparalleled guest amenities year round. When looking for a vacation home, we knew this was the one from the moment we stepped inside the front door!

We have a comfortable, fully-equipped kitchen that is perfect for entertaining. The living room and dining area have twenty foot high vaulted ceilings, with views looking out upon stately pines. The living room is complemented by a wood burning stove (wood provided) and a large hearth, with a back drop of river rock climbing the wall. The living room is equipped with flat screen TV, wifi, a VCR, and a stereo with a cassette and CD player.

Our home has three bedrooms, a master bedroom on the first floor, with a flat screen TV, wifi, opens onto the back deck and woods beyond, and a queen-size bed. A second bedroom upstairs is light and airy, with a queen-size bed, cathedral ceiling and view of the pines, bluejays and squirrels.

Our third bedroom is great for extra guests or kids. It is furnished with two sets of bunk-beds (sleeps four), with a flat screen TV, wifi, and has cathedral ceilings. All rooms have generous closet space. There are also full bathrooms on the first and second floors. In addition, the living room has a queen-size hide-a-bed that sleeps two.

The generous back deck includes a picnic table, and a gas grill during the summer and fall, and looks out onto a serene forest. The front deck circles the house, and is just made for basking in the sun, or sharing a bottle of wine and good conversation, while watching the sun go down. Also included with your guest amenity pass, is access to our private beach club and marina on beautiful Donner Lake. You will not be disappointed in this mountain vacation home!

Why Cathy Gray chose Truckee

This home is in a perfect location. Surrounded by pines, close to fine restaurants, close to the Truckee river for white water rafting. It also has it's own downhill skiing within the Homeowners area. Squaw Valley and Boreal are just a couple of miles away. Great for a quick trip to Tahoe or Reno.

What makes this house unique

Our family loves heading to the Recreation area in our Tahoe Donner community, just a couple of blocks from the house, whether it is summer or winter. Wonderful facilities include 3 hot tubs, huge family pool and a large lap pool, which is open year round. You can also get a massage or full workout all year round.

We also enjoy the woodsy trails that loop through our area. It is a nature lovers delight!

The quaint old town of Truckee is only a couple of miles away with lots of cute shops, galleries, wonderful cafes and restaurants.

Very comfortble house, amazingly responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

We were two families staying at the house in January 2018. We enjoyed the space that was ample for our group, and included an unusually cozy nook for the kids to hang out. But what really stood out for me was the kindness and helpfulness of the owners. After we left I realized we had left some items behind. I texted Cathy, the owner, and she got back to me within moments to tell me she would have her housekeeper look out for the items. That is indeed what happened, and she kept the items for us for a pickup by friends who drove up a week later.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (my husband and 3 young boys) loved this house and location. It was ideally situated with a large open level area in the back the boys could play in the snow while I could stay in and keep warm! The floor plan is also great with the bunk bed room and two additional queen bed rooms. Plenty of room for us. My 4 year old loved the "secret" room off the stairs too! The house is older and showing a bit of her age but it was clean and well stocked. The location is great, minutes from truckee and a safeway, we had a GREAT time here.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you and your family enjoyed our home. We have always had great fun gathering with family and friends there. We have just finished remodeling our upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, adding a beautiful walk-in shower. We also added new carpeting and living room furniture. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.

A very warm, comfortable home for all seasons

  • 5 of 5

Again repeating what's been said so often - this is a very comfortable home, well located, well furnished, and an excellent value. We rented this property for a week including Christmas, and Tahoe accommodated us with with a heavy snow and cold weather, appropriate to the season. We didn't ask much of the house since there were only three of us staying there and, with our larger family, spent most of our time and ate meals at a home nearby. Still we were very happy, especially since the place kept us warm during some very cold temps, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked and serviceable. The location is very convenient to all TD amenities. We found the owners to be very nice to work with, helpful and prompt in dealing with rental details.

A very comfortable home and an excellent value

  • 5 of 5

As everyone else has commented this is a very comfortable home, well located, well furnished, and an excellent value. The beds were very comfy, the kitchen well stocked, the family room furniture very comfortable, the deck nice and large, and the location great. We couldn't have asked for anything more. I expect we'll be vacationing at Tahoe Donner in the future and will definitely plan to stay here again.
