Why Tanya Wolfe chose Truckee
Our property is best for families. There is a lot to do for the kids. We do not allow events or parties. Our area is very low-key and quiet.
What makes this House unique
I hope you can see from the pictures that this home is cozy, inviting, open and very private. It is decorated with a modern, but mountain flare with all the amenities you could want. We have a heat lamp on the porch and super warm, soft blankets so you can hang out on the porch late at night. We have provided toiletries, hair dryers, curling irons, laundry detergent, iron with board, extra chairs, and more. We have rented homes from many people over the years and know how important it is to feel safe and welcomed. I know once you walk through the door, you will feel the weight of the world taken off your shoulders and what we like to call 'The Tahoe Brain' kicks in. You forget the real world. Nothing else matters but where you are at that given time, with your family or friends and no responsibilities! Welcome!

Great house, Great Location
We stayed in this home with our family and another family of 4. It was very comfortable and have all the things we needed. The owners were responsive when we had a question about the wifi. The best part is that 2 of the bedrooms have king size beds which is always a treat. The kids loved the bunk bed/queen bed room. It's less than a 10 minute drive to Donner ski resort. We would stay here again!
We enjoyed having you and do hope you will come back
Perfect for families
Beautiful, clean, well stocked, cozy.
We really enjoyed our stay here. lots of room and well equipped. Beautiful scenery. There is a nice trail right our the back.
Thanks Michael. Yes, we have miles of trails behind the house to hike or snowshoe. Hope you come back soon.
Really nice place!
We had a wonderful time. This house is nice, well maintained, and very comfortable! We loved the comfy couches and beds. The owner was very quick to respond to my questions and thorough with directions on how everything in the house works. She kindly informed us of a fun event in Truckee that we ended up going and loving. We were in a great location to just go in the backyard and hike. Overall it was a great experience!
Thanks Sharon, we were so happy you enjoyed your time here. I think the common comments we receive are quiet, secluded, miles of hiking and mountain biking trails out the front door. Since we are on a slope, lot's of sledding and even my boys have snowboarded right next to the house.
Beautiful and comfortable vacation home.
We had a relaxing few days in this well-stocked, cozy Tahoe cabin. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable and the eating and living areas were inviting. The location was perfect for us: convenient to nearby amenities (like a massage at the rec center!) yet somewhat woodsy and away from crowds. We will definitely be back! Thank you Tanya!
Thanks Julia. I too love that we are quiet and secluded, yet you can hike to town in 30 minutes or drive in 10. Trout Creek is an amazing rec center only a few minutes up the road. We hope you will come back.
Very comfortable and cozy with great layout for two families. Would return!
Great property to relax and enjoy the mountains. Backs to open space behind to hike or sled. Perfect for multiple families and families with kids. Driveway is a bit steep so beware in winter or snowy conditions. Parking spots up at street level that we were glad we used when the snow came.
Thanks for commenting on the slope of the driveway. We try to communicate to guests, the driveway is not flat, however, it slopes down from the street to our home, which is tucked away, hidden a bit from the street and makes it cozy and quiet. We do have a parking pad at the top for those very snowy days and you need to get out in a hurry. Our plow service is great and typically has our driveway done before 7am.
Every season Tahoe Donner offers its own unique opportunities for outdoor activities and indoor indulgence.
We are close to all the popular ski resorts, have our own private beach at Donner Lake and have world class restaurants to enjoy. You name it, I'm sure we've got it!
Our property backs to the Tahoe National Forest with miles and miles of hiking, mountain biking and snow shoeing right out your door. It is secluded and quiet, except of course for the squirrels, birds, lizards, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Truckee is very family friendly and welcome visitors. Enjoy wine tasting, shopping, great food, concerts, outdoor movie night, WII night, Bingo and various festivals. If you like history, we have a great museum and great stories of the 'Donner Party' and their fateful journey in 1846. Perhaps outdoors is more your style, we have moderate to extreme snow skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, mountain biking, hiking, water skiing/boating, paddle boats, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, para sailing, windsurfing, crawdad fishing, fishing in general and just plain old tubing down the river or swimming in our two private pools. Oh, did I mention a full recreation facility with saunas, exercise classes, weight room, pool, tennis courts and if you are into golf, two great golf courses! In addition, equestrian center with pony rides, trail rides, BBQ s and all kinds of activities as well. I could go on, but you get the idea.
