About Reservations

Tahoe Mountain Properties specializes in Luxury nightly rentals and ski leases in the north Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake and Truckee areas and surrounding ski resorts. We offer a proactive, efficient and friendly approach to property management. When you stay at a Tahoe Mountain Properties home, the property will be warmed up and welcoming upon your arrival-heated to 65 degrees with the porch light on for easy access.

Why Reservations chose Southside Highlands

Located on the quiet side of the Lake, this home is a great location to get together for a "low key" vacation with family or friends. We especially like how this property has two decks with 180 degree views of the lake. The second floor deck is covered and offers high tables, perfect for getting out of the afternoon sun, but still enjoying the view-with a good book, a board game or a cocktail! The upper deck is directly off the great room and has plenty of seating and a large gas BBQ.

Beautiful Retreat

We loved our stay at this cabin on the edge of Donner Lake. The cabin has plenty of room for our four families. We are looking forward to returning to the lake in the summer.

Had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend at this incredible cabin right on the lake! It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable all the amenities that you need and perfectly located on the lake with five minute drive to downtown Truckee. This place is a Gem! Holly was wonderful to work with. Loved it and will stay again ! Thank you!
