About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

This rental is your ticket to Family Fun and Lake Tahoe's 'outdoor buffet' of activities and sports. Our home is tastefully decorated and furnished with new and comfortable furniture and amenities. It is adult AND kid friendly.

Recreation for parents and children is just a block or two away in the Tahoe Donner Resort area. Walking distance to the sledding hill and the Trout Creek Recreation Center, five minutes from Tahoe Donner Family Ski Area and Cross-Country Center, 20 minutes to all major ski resorts, including North Star, Squaw, and Alpine. There is something for everyone here, and we are in the heart of it in this wonderfully quiet and central Tahoe Donner neighborhood.

To help you maximize your enjoyment, we have a hefty binder of restaurants, resort information, biking, hiking, and skiing trails, and local shops and services. Plan to stay at least a week to take advantage of all that is available. Be sure to save some time for family dinners around our extra-long dining room table or for a soak in the hot tub. Plenty of room for two families so you can double your fun!

About Kathy Miller

We recently bought our first Tahoe home. We love the natural beauty of the area and look forward to spending time there with our boys. We have lived near the ocean for years enjoying the coast. Now it's time to explore the Sierras.

Kathy Miller purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Miller chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

At first we came for the snow sports - the boys like to snowboard. But summer activities are great fun too. So close to the Bay Area but it feels like another world.

What makes this house unique

This home has a warm and friendly feeling. The Trout Creek Recreation Center is only a block away from the house. The kids can walk over to use the pool, workout or get a bit to eat at the deli.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying. We had 3 families staying at the 3 bedroom house but still feel very comfortable. The children had a blast. The kitchen is very equipped, more than you can think of. The internet is very stable. Last but not least, Kathy is very responsive and helpful. I will definity come back for our next vacation.

Owner's Response: So glad you had an enjoyable stay at our house in Tahoe. The house has an open concept which is good for family time. The loft is above the main floor so you still like part of activity. Thank you for taking good care of the house. That is important to us.

spacious, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at this lovely Tahoe Donner property. There was plenty of room for our family of four (mom, dad and two kids ages 7 and 10), and the house was clean, tidy and well-appointed. Great selection of books (kids books too!) and games, plus hot tub and air hockey - there really was something for everyone. A very lovely, quiet location just a short walk from the rec center. It was perfectly easy to feel comfortable and quite at home during our visit. Thank you!

Owner's Response: So glad your family enjoyed the house!! We also enjoy the quiet peaceful Tahoe Donner area. Even though the area is quiet, it's so close to the recreation center for swimming, golf, gym etc - so it's not isolated. There is plenty of space to play outside or go on a hike. Nicely maintained "Nature Loop" with a beaver dam next to the rec center. Happy to have guests come & enjoy beautiful Tahoe 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲

Seconded time in Tahoe Donner , first time at this home, and wow my kids and Wife loved it. Super well equipped and very close to the Rec center as well. The pictures don't do it justice. We totally loved it and will be back next year!

Owner's Response: This house is perfect for families such as your lovely family. The master suite is big and offers quiet space for the adults. Downstairs there is a kid's room with bunk beds and a third single bed with a foam topper which makes it more comfortable. I'm glad we can share the house with families that love nature and the beautiful Tahoe area. Lots of amenities to explore in Tahoe Donner!
