About the property

Enjoy a stay at our family's favorite place on earth. A chef's kitchen will be the delight of all entertainers while those who just want to play will enjoy luxury soaker baths, ping-pong, fire-lit reading, high-end entertainment systems, and patios.

Sleeps 9 comfortably in beds: 1 California King, 1 king, 1 queen, 3 twins (2 of which are bunked) plus we have additional sleeping arrangements if your party is larger. The 2 king rooms and 1 queen room all have cable TV to enjoy from bed. There are 4 beds and 3 baths. Each bath has both a shower and bath tub and 2/3 tubs have jets for your enjoyment.

A chef's kitchen is prepped with everything you need for hosting, and there is ample seating for a big family-style meal (16 comfortably).

Relax by the gas fireplace in the winter and BBQ and soak in the sun on the 3 decks in the summer.

For those lucky enough to claim the master, you will find an oasis all to your selves. A grand king bed, seating area, entertainment system, walk-in closet, private patio, heated-floored bathroom, jetted soaker tub with views, and his and her sinks will make you feel like stars.

The 'kids' can enjoy the entertainment room with a new Samsung smart TV, ping pong, Xbox one video games, movies, surround sound, and an attached deck. Older 'kids' will enjoy having a fridge and wet-bar in that room as well.

2 guest passes to Tahoe Donner's association amenities will be available for your use. This will allow you discounted access for up to 8 guests (4 per pass) to a gym with breathtaking views, 2 pools (lap pool for adults, fun pool for kids), sauna, 2 hot tubs, Tahoe Donner golf course and driving range, Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski and Cross-Country Ski, a private beach by Donner Lake, and a separate recreation center with games, tennis courts, outdoor summer activities, playgrounds, kids camps, and a third pool all within a 5-15 minute drive.

Don't miss out on downhill sledding and snowshoeing in the winter and trail hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and the Coyote Moon golf course in the summer, all within the Tahoe Donner area.

You will love walking the neighborhood and having easy driving access to everything Tahoe/Truckee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed this property in the summer and winter months and always enjoy our time there. It is fully furnished, decorated, and stocked with everything you need to feel like home. (Actually better than home!) The interior floor plan and spacious decks are perfect for entertaining or accommodating large families. The heated travertine floors in the master bathroom are a treat in the winter time! I also appreciate the location as it is so close to golf, tennis, shopping, dining, gambling, hiking, fishing, you name it. We were just there this past week and are already looking forward to planning our next visit!

Clean comfortable with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience from start to finish. Shannon was fantastic and readily available to answer any questions. Her place is a home away from home!! We will return. It was super kid friendly too with a game room & tons of toys. Also only a few minute drive to Tahoe dinner ski area.

Perfect for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 small daughters to Tahoe to try skiing for the 1st time. The location was perfect as was 5 mins from Tahoe Donner (a great learning area) and the house was full of games for our 3 girls. The house was clean and well stocked. The kitchen and bathrooms were well put together. Will definitely be back!

PERFECT Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house Donner Dream is!!! We are from Atlanta and met our son in Truckee for Thanksgiving in Donner Dream. The house is exquisite and appointed very well. We have rented many houses through the years for vacations, and this one takes top honors. Shannon is most generous in opening the house to guests and is willing to share many of the items other owners might lock up. It is tastefully furnished with much art work and mountain memorabilia that make you really feel at home and really feel the "mountain" ambiance. We asked for Thanksgiving snow and got it - about 16 inches and it was gorgeous and certainly enhanced our stay. We were truly surprised at the snow removal in Truckee and were able to get out and about with no problems - the homeowners association even shovels the driveway!!!! Truckee/Donner is a wonderful place and this house is perfect! The beds were wonderfully comfortable and all linens etc are furnished. The downstairs game room was perfect for our granddaughters who had a ball with the ping pong table and video equipment. This grand getaway is situated in a truly beautiful part of the country and we would not hesitate to repeat our experience. Shannon is a wonderful person to deal with through VRBO - my only regret is that we did not get to meet her!!!!

Spacious, lovely decorated light filled home with great kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home and renting from Shannon! It exceeded my expectations by far and definitely reflected the lovely pictures! I loved so many things about this home: the open floor plan upstairs that opened out to the very large deck, the fully stocked chef's kitchen with lots of storage space in the pantry, the comfortable living room furniture and master bed, the sunken tub in the master bath, the spaces garage with room for cars and bikes. I worked remotely at this house for 9 days and enjoyed a fun weekend with friends from my bike club for the Tahoe Sierra Century there. I have friends who live close by and walked a mile or so to the rec center for an excellent yoga class the day after the century. I hope to be able to stay there again. It was a wonderful home away from home. Shannon called me the first day to make sure everything was ok which it was.
