Creating a unique space among the multitude of vacation homes is no easy feat, but Laura's Lodge has found the way to do it! While its footprint is classic, Laura's Lodge itself is anything but ordinary. Named after the owner for her attention to every detail, this two-story lodge-inspired residence summons up a restrained mountain chic aesthetic. Think leather studded chairs, suede sofas and warm chocolate hues. Laura's Lodge distinguishes itself with its high-altitude extras: a movie-themed wet bar in the rec room, an authentic cuckoo clock in the dining room, a toasty gas fireplace in the master bedroom and a hot tub nestled amid a lush stand of Jeffery and Lodge-Pole Pines. With beds outfitted to perfection in themed rooms and a kitchen stocked for every possible need, Laura's Lodge makes no bones about spoiling its guests. And it's these personal touches that let you know that your happiness at her home is very important.

                                                            Beautiful home, great for big families

                                                            Erin P.

                                                            We had my dad's 70th birthday party at Laura's Lodge and it was perfect for our extended family. Plenty of rooms for sleeping and the common space was spacious and laid out well. We stayed in the early fall and the outside space was lovely. Great deck, lawn and hot tub. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place that can house a large group in style!

                                                            We hit the jackpot!

                                                            We've rented several different houses in Tahoe Donner, but this one is by far the best! Everything we needed for a very relaxing vacation. Location is ideal and oh so quiet. The layout is perfect for multi-generation groups. Plenty of room to spread out. First floor master bedroom that leads to the back deck is a plus. We'll definitely be back next year.


                                                            Tim C.El Dorado Hills, CA

                                                            This beautiful home was perfect for our stay. The kids especially loved the upstairs family room and the adorable bedroom with the cozy loft! It was well appointed, clean and had every appliance and amenity one could ask for. The backyard setting was quite pretty and peaceful for a popular neighborhood. We would like to return next summer.

                                                            Greatest House by far...

                                                            Tracee M.South San Francisco, CA

                                                            This house has it all! We rent every year for our annual snow trip and this house was by far the best. No complaints. Great location, has everything you need not to mention it has tons of space for large gatherings. If you are needing a home this is it. No need to look further. We for sure will be renting this one again!
