Our house is located in a quiet, prestigious area of Tahoe Donner. Both of our neighbors are full time residents. I only rent to responsible families who will respect our neighbors and their property.

Hands down the best value in Tahoe Donner! Our house has private sleeping quarters for 11 people in five separate rooms (4 bedrooms and an office) in a very quiet and prestigious area of Tahoe Donner that backs up to a green belt and golf course.

All of our visitors have given us five star reviews and here are some of the things they have said about our place:

'Tremendous open space, truly gives you the feeling of being in the woods'

'We went with three other families and we all fit great!'

'Nicest house we've rented in Tahoe Donner'

'Best looking house on the block, hands down'

'Adjacent to beautiful signature No. 18 hole with a nice grade for sledding'

Beautiful, two story house on sunny wooded lot, with a flat, South facing driveway. The house has a two car garage with a level entrance way into the House. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are located on the first floor for easy access along with a queen bedroom and half bathroom.

The house is perfect for large families or two families traveling together and is both kid and senior friendly. There is a child safety gate at the top of the stairs and a large tub for bathing children in the master suite. The house has a covered entry way with only four steps into the house for easy access by seniors.

The sunken living room has ample seating with two full size couches (each couch seats 4 comfortably) that overlook the deck and green belt in the back yard. There is also a built-in gas fireplace with remote control, 55 inch LCD HD Smart TV, surround sound system, and a Blu-ray player as well.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with high-end cookware, gourmet coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, and gas stove along with a dining table that can accommodate up to ten people. There is additional bar seating at the kitchen counter and at the pass through window overlooking the sunken living room.

The back deck has a BBQ grill, couch with table/chairs and an umbrella to sit outside and enjoy the forest views. The house is located in a very private setting with a green belt in the back and plenty of trees nearby.

Upstairs there are three more bedrooms and an office along with two full bathrooms and a full size washer/dryer. The master suite is like its own retreat with a king bed, walk-in-closet, 42 inch LCD HD TV, and bathroom suite with huge spa tub and separate walk-in shower.

There is a queen bedroom upstairs and a kids room that has a full/twin bunk bed that sleeps three along with an over sized chair and a 30 inch LCD HD TV and DVD player.

There is a full bathroom upstairs along with a full size office that has a broadband router with Wi-Fi, and a twin bed with pull out twin trundle. All the beds are new with the finest linens and warm comforters for those chilly winter nights.

The house is equipped with the latest technology and has a 55 inch LCD HD Smart TV and Blu-ray player with wireless surround sound speakers. Play Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon movies, or surf the web and listen to music streaming on Pandora via the Smart TV. There are two MP3 music systems in the house, both have mini-jack cables and one also has Bluetooth access for your smart phone or iPod. The house is equipped with high speed broadband service (15M download) and 5GHz Wi-Fi.

For golfers, the house is located next to the 18th tee with easy access to the golf cart pathway. The Tahoe Donner golf course is beautifully designed and rated one of the best courses in Tahoe. The golf course is typically open from the end of May through mid October, so book now for your golfing vacation.

There are two pools at Tahoe Donner and a workout center and both are located very close to the house. There is also a tennis center and hiking trails located near the house.

This is a lovely home and it met our needs.

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for 10 people, we had six adults and four children, ages 9 1/2 to 2 1/2. It is in a very nice neighborhood, only wish there was some fencing in the back so the children would know their boundaries without having to be constantly supervised.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review and I’m glad you enjoyed our house and the neighborhood during your recent stay. We take great pride in offering a beautiful and clean house for our guests. We appreciate your comments as it helps us improve the experience for the next guest. As you noted, I do inform our guests ahead of their stay that there are permanent residents on either side of our house and I do appreciate our guests diligence in respecting our neighbors privacy and property. There is a trampoline and a hammock in our neighbors backyard which I understand can be tempting for kids. For future guests we are taking into consideration how to better mark the property boundaries. For now, the general rule is the property boundaries are 10 feet on either side of our house and extend to certain point in the backyard which is information I will insure to share with future guests. Our property does, however, extend back into a large open space in the forest (beyond our property boundaries) where kids are welcome to play. We know it can be difficult to supervise children when they are outside. We will be providing better clarification to future guests so they may educate their children with regard to the boundaries of the property. Thank you again for your helpful comments.

Comfy home for family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

We gathered for a family reunion after a wedding in Auburn, and rented this home to be close to a friend's home in the neighborhood. Hayley House was well supplied with towels and linens and the kitchen had a large table and everything needed to cook for a group. The spacious living room had comfy couches, and the bedrooms suited our needs. We appreciated the large capacity washer and dryer, nightlights in the hallways and bathrooms, and although we didn't use them, the home was stocked with extras like beach towels and chairs, and kids games. Please be aware that this home is next to neighbors who are friendly, permanent residents- so, our time spent out on the deck during the heat wave( no AC), had to be curtailed earlier than we would have liked.

Great location and home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location! We rented for a 3 day working retreat, and enjoyed the bright, spacious living room with great view of the woods. All 10 of us easily fit at the dining table, and everyone was able to sleep in very comfortable beds. It never felt too small, even with all of us. They have a great TV and Blue Ray player, and well-appointed home with plenty of towels and kitchen supplies. I've used VRBO many times and Pete is without a doubt the most responsive owner we have ever rented from. He responds quickly to email and was more than willing to work with us and accommodate our requests and needs. We would love to return next year and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in a great Truckee location.

Great home with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Haley House. My kids especially loved the extensive "backyard" that was a short walk from Trout Creek. It's only a couple min drive from Donner Pass Rd, so it'd easy to get to grocery stores and restaurants. Would stay here again!

cozy and attractive

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at Hayley House. Our 3 year old loved sledding in the forest behind the house and building snowman. There is a big forest area behind the home and a stream, great for play and exploring. Plus lots of toys for young children in the kids room and she was fully occupied even inside.

The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, once we arrived we never left for the whole weekend!
