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!

We really enjoyed our stay here. lots of room and well equipped. Beautiful scenery. There is a nice trail right our the back.
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!
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!
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.
Great home in Tahoe Donner
Enjoyed our stay! Great home in Tahoe Donner with sledding for the kids just steps away. Super close to grocery store, coffee, and downtown Truckee - all while being tucked away at the back of the neighborhood and backing to forest area. Highly recommend!
Perfect Vacation Home
We have rented several homes in the Tahoe area, and this is definitely one of the best. The location is amazing - backing up to open space and hiking trails. Our kids had a ton of space to play in the snow, and we could snow shoe and sled right outside the house. The views are beautiful, and the house has great privacy, which was a nice retreat from the busy town and ski resorts. I imagine it's fantastic in the summer too. The house is very comfortable. It's not huge, but the space is used well so that it feels like a much bigger home. Our family of 5 had more than enough space. All of the beds were very comfortable; there were plenty of games, DVDs, blankets, etc. We would definitely rent this home again.
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.
