Most amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything that was promised on the site. It had an amazing view and the home itself was fantastic. So much room for everyone. It was well maintained and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, glasses, cutlery, etc. The rooms were very spacious. The town of Truckee has so many restaurants to chose from. And of course Donner Lake is right there. I would recommend this property, especially if one is looking for a relaxing place to stay with a spectacular view.

Disappointed in certain areas

  • 2 of 5

While the house and location were lovely, we had a few criticisms -- the towels were like the ones they give out for free at a gym -- thin and scratchy. There were insect droppings on the porch in the corner by the sliding door -- this could have been cleaned up prior to guests' arrival. The outside lights on the porch were not all working. The gas grill was filthy and therefore, was not used. The bedroom linens, pillows, blankets and bedspreads were skunky and needed to be replaced. The carpeting on the stairs needed intense cleaning. Felt like we were sleeping in a cheap motel not a several hundred dollar per nite accommodation. We loved the area but would return to this property.

Owner's Response: Hello Joan, As I stated in our phone conversation, I wish that you had reached out to us during your stay. Homeowner is locally available, and would have been more than accommodating. At the same time, I thank you for your review, this is an opportunity for us to improve, where we appear to be lacking. We have taken the following steps to remedy these deficiencies; Our linens had previously been stored in a closet that was a little musky. They have since been laundered and are now stored in another area. Towels have been updated and are rotated frequently. Prior to your arrival we had not had guests for several weeks; therefore our cleaning service had not swept off the porch. Outside lighting on the deck is motion detected. Our gas grill has since been replaced. I agree with you, it was a mess. Carpets have been professionally cleaned, as of early October. Again, I do apologize for any deficiencies. I have just returned from a weekend at the property, and I can confirm all issues have been resolved. We appreciate your feedback and have credited your account with 1 free night.

Great view!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the lake & mountains, well equipped, nice garage space for bikes. Donner Pass Rd is a bit loud, but not sure that is a deal breaker!

Thanks for the stay!
