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 Truckee

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 bite to eat at the deli.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this wonderful home for many years. It is always left clean, organized and ready to go. The layout works well for our family and the indoor hottub a plus in the winter. We also really enjoy being able to use the recreational facilities which is an easy walk from the house. I highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for some fun in the mountains.

Perfect place to stay in Tahoe Donner.

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at this cabin for years, and love it. First of all - it's a *perfect* location: two blocks off Northwoods Blvd, so it's quiet; and it's just 2 blocks easy-walking distance to Trout Creek Rec Center. Once inside, we love the layout: whoever is on KP can still be part of the conversation in the dining and family room areas; the downstairs bedrooms are ideal for middle-generation parents and grandkids; and the upstairs master is large and separated enough to be nice and quiet for sleeping. Our grandkids also liked having the large play space upstairs.

Owner's Response: Always a pleasure to have your family stay at the house! We appreciate that you take such good care of the house. We want the house to be comfortable and well maintained. So we are happy to hear your feedback about your stay at the house. The house is perfect for families - grandparents, parents and children. It is a wonderful location with the recreation center in easy walking distance. We do like the Lodge Restaurant next to the recreation center. It's both casual and elegant.

Great location, comfy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a week. It was perfect for our group: two families with small kids. Very well stocked and comfortable. Location is awesome. You can walk to the REC center and Pool. Tahoe Donner is perfect for families. Lots to do without leaving the area. Owner was very responsive. We will be back!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a number of places in Tahoe-Donner over the years and this home is really at the top of our list now. Our 8-year-old grandson was in heaven -- created a sledding run in the back yard, played air hockey non-stop and then relaxed in the hot tub. The physical lay-out of the house is perfect and it's cleanly and comfortably decorated. We all enjoyed our stay there immensely. We would definitely return

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.
