About Tahoe Truckee Homes Rentals
We live and work in Silicon Valley. We really enjoy the activities that Lake Tahoe has to offer: hiking, biking, skiing (her), snowboarding (him), and just enjoying the incredible scenery and fresh air. After years of visiting ski resorts in Tahoe and Bear Valley, we decided North Lake Tahoe offers the most options for skiing and summer outdoor activities. We were tired of renting hotel rooms, having to vacate our room by 11 in the morning, and being restricted to microwave snacks! Since acquiring our place in Tahoe Donner, we have taken up kayaking, and cross country skating; we find them exhilarating (and at times, exhausting) sports.
Tahoe Truckee Homes Rentals purchased this House in 2009
Why Tahoe Truckee Homes Rentals chose Truckee
At some point we decided that life was just too short to keep procrastinating. We spent the summer of 2009 hunting for a place that really 'spoke' to us. We had early on decided that Tahoe Donner was the place for us: the convenient location (easy to get to I-80 but far enough away to be quiet and private) and the vast array of amenities. We looked at a zillion houses but none 'clicked' until Matt showed us this house. The spectacular views, location, kitchen, decks, quality and elegance of construction, the level driveway (a deal maker!), and the soothing sound of Alder Creek. We were hooked.
What makes this House unique
What's unique about our house is not any one thing. It's a hard-to-pin-down combination of convenient location combined with beauty and privacy of location. The views are endlessly amazing. Even the condos across the creek look like Santa's Village after a snowstorm. We're close to the local ski hill, and so close to TD's vast network of XC/hike/bike trails... that we don't even need to drive to enjoy our Tahoe adventures and solitude. We really enjoy the Tahoe Donner amenities - the beach club marina at Donner Lake, the Lodge restaurant, and the European feel of the community.

Very nice home and location
We had a very nice stay, the house was plenty big enough for 4 adults and 2 children. We loved the open floor plan and beautiful views. The best part was it was walking distance to Tahoe Donner, which even though there wasn't much snow, we were still able to do ski lessons for our older child. Thank you for opening your home up to us, we will be back!
Amazing home, BUT my own opinion not family or kid friendly. Should not be rented out, extremely picky. Do not recommend for family’s with Children!
Thank you for your review; we’re sorry that our vacation home didn’t meet with your expectations. However we were pretty surprised at the condition of the house after your stay, which the cleaning deposit did not begin to cover. In our four+ years with the Truckee home as a vacation rental, we have rented mostly to families with children, with no issues. However the house is not child-proof.
Close to Donner Lake and downtown Truckee, great spot for a family vacation.
Thank you for your review - we appreciate it, and are glad that you enjoyed what the area has to offer! We think the Truckee area is tough to beat for the variety of things to do, the amazing views, and small-town hospitality.
Pictures didn't show how perfect this place is.. the pool table in the center of the living place was great, bringing the family together. Views from all decks - amazing!! And the kitchen was fully stocked with top of the line appliances. Definitely returning, thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay!
Modern, Open and Well Appointed
This cabin is gorgeous! Modern architecture with beautiful wood accents combined with a great view make this place a winner. The pool table located in the middle of the great room adds to the fun, open atmosphere. We'd definitely rent this lovely place again...
Hi Randall, thank you very much for your review - we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay, and like the layout (it's what sold us on the house in the first place). We hope you get a chance to visit again; winter is fun, but the summers are awesome in Truckee!
Modern, Luxury Home
Great newer home, with luxury finishes throughout. The kids loved the pool table. Very clean and comfortable and a great view of the ski hill. It was a quick drive to Sugar Bowl, where we skied the first day. Northstar and Squaw also close.
Thank you so much for your review – we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay!
The base of the local hill is literally a 7 minute walk, or 1 minute drive from our house. While small, the hill is almost never crowded and powder hounds can skip the Squallywood scene for fresh tracks all day on the backside runs. The XC trails are truly world class. 'Advanced beginners' and up simply must do the Euer Vally loop. While the climb out is a bit of a slog, the valley is absolutely stunning, and the loops in the valley floor are completely flat. Bring a nice lunch and enjoy the mellow scene at the Cookhouse, or relax in scenic isolation at the Coyote Hut. More adventurous skiers and boarders can get their backcountry fix just up the road. Walk or drive up Skislope to the top, hike/ski/snowshoe the trails to skiers left and ride Sunrise Bowl back down to the street. In summer Euer Valley remains one of our favorite places to hike or mountain bike to. If you time a springtime (early june) hike just right, Sagehen Creek trail (hikers only) takes you to an arm of Stampede reservoir and a literal ocean of purple flowers. An interesting 6 mile up and back mountain bike ride can be had along Alder creek. Start by parking along Alder Creek road (south side) where the Emigrant Trail crosses the road and ride up the trail beside the creek. The creek is pretty, beaver dams and ponds abound, and there is even a few skinny bridges back and forth across the creek to test your nerve. Extend the ride up into the Tahoe Donner trail complex, or head the other way for a dramatic 20 mile round trip all the way to the Stampede reservoir boat launch (this latter ride is one of the first rides to clear in the spring, but it gets pretty hot in mid summer unless you go early or late. And any time of the year the views of the sky from the upper deck are wonderful Alpenglow on Mount Rose, the scent of the Jeffery Pines, the whispering of Alder Creek in the back yard, and the vast clear night skies (full moons are like daylight up here, and when the moon isn't out the glittering arc of the Milky Way is something you have to see to believe.
