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.

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.

White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place that would provide a White Christmas for 2 seniors and a small dog. This place could not have provided anything better. It snowed the entire week. The house is very comfortable and is well stocked with necessities and plenty of wood for the wood burning fireplace. The central heating is also available if you do not want the wood burning fire. Plenty of area for the dog to play and walk. The garage was very nice to have for coming and going without having to get out into the snow and scrape the ice off the car. A wonderful time by all.

Great location and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five and our lab spent a very relaxing week this summer at your rental. The location was perfect. We were walking distance to Northwoods Clubhouse and to Trout Creek. We also discovered an amazing trail system not far from the house. Even more convenient was the quick drive to Safeway and Truckee. The home itself is well-equipped and very comfortable. Our dog enjoyed the enclosed back patio. My 14 year old son loved the sleeping nook and the other 2 loved the bunk room. The owners were extremely responsive and booking was painless. We look forward to another stay!

Great family-friendly ski lease rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental is extremely family-friendly with a play area nook, large porches for snow-shoveling fun for the kids, bunk-beds, and a large family area with a fireplace. The owners were kind enough to allow us to bring our dog as well. Other useful amenities include parking for three cars, boot and laundry rooms, and plenty of storage areas. The bedrooms are sufficiently large and the beds are comfortable. The owner is very responsive and pleasant. The travel time to Sugar and Alpine is about the same, so the house works well for groups going in different directions each day. The house is located on a quiet street, so it's safe for the kids to play in the front yard and for walking the dog. The price is also very reasonable.

fantastic family rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this well-kept, spacious rental. This is a super home for families or groups with kids - the bunk beds room is useful, and the kids' loft space is a lot of fun. We also appreciated that dogs were allowed. Kitchen was well-equipped, beds were in good shape, great to have access to Tahoe Donner amenities - an all-around good time!
