About Rhonda at Starting Gate
The owners love the Tahoe area and all of the fun, healthy family recreation it provides both in the summer and winter.
Rhonda at Starting Gate purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Rhonda at Starting Gate chose Truckee
This property was purchased and renovated to be state-of-art in energy efficiency, electronics and appliances with dual purpose in mind. We wanted to be able to enjoy Tahoe in hassle-free, luxury like we were staying in a penthouse, timeshare or suite at one of the top local resorts. For years, we stayed at the top hotels in the area and found that staying at a resort limited our options for places to ski, restaurants and activities. In the summertime, we found ourselves wishing for lake views and better access to all of the summertime lake activities. We searched to find just the right house or condo on and near both Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. A 45 minute shorter commute to the Bay Area, better access to our favorite ski resorts, warmer and more family-friendly waters made Donner Lake our first choice. After three plus years of searching, we found this property and this unit. We envisioned it being brought up to date while also highlighting its really great 1972 post-modern architectural structure. We believe we have done just that are are thrilled to share it with others.

We really enjoyed our stay. Great views and a really cool house. It was perfect for our group of four.
Cozy. Gas stove was great.
Nice place in a great location
We had a nice stay with my family here. The place was nicely decorated and clean, the kids loved the upstairs “bunker”. The condo was close to all activities, including skiing and hiking. The owner was very responsive as well.
Great place for a Christmas get away
We really enjoyed our stay during the Christmas holiday. The location is perfect and the place felt like home away from home.
Perfectly appointed and hosted.
We really enjoyed our second trip to this wonderful home. It's always a treat to get away to a lovely venue with a private beach. We stayed in several HomeAway rentals and this is our favorite by far. We can't say enough nice things about it. Just go there and enjoy!
Pristine and inviting!
Would love to rent this place again! So conveniently located to everything.
