Overview

About the property

Very Short Walk To Trout Creek Rec Ctr, Playground, Restaurant/Bar & Small Store

Although you wouldn't know it, our condo is 'next door' to the Trout Creek Rec Ctr (with its year round pool(s), hot tubs, steam room, sauna, work out/weights room, etc), the only local convenience/deli/coffee store in Tahoe Donner, and the Lodge restaurant/Pub/Golf Clubhouse/Pro shop. It's a perfect spot if some guests want to venture out by car, yet others want to hang around 'home.' Condo is set way back from the road so is nice and quiet, and overlooks the 18th hole through filtering, tall pine trees.

Cozy 2-bed, 1 1/2 bath 'end' condo with parking. It's more like a townhouse with only one adjoining wall. Queen bed in both bedrooms. Small sleeping loft above kitchen/dining room suitable for older children and agile adults only. 2 decks with a tree-filtered view of the 18th green. Warm gas fireplace. Baseboard heaters in each room. Wood-beamed ceilings: vaulted upstairs. Quiet location at back of complex. Cable TV, DVD/VCR, and WiFi. Kitchen has everything we think you'll need. Laundry Room in complex.

Many dates available, possibly at short notice. We may also be interested in a vacation home swap anywhere!

Tahoe Donner is a wonderful mountain community in the North Lake Tahoe Truckee region of the Sierras, and offers an amazing variety of recreational facilities -- some for members and guests (you!) only. With your 'guest card' ($8pp per day) you gain access to the private HOA amenities. Children under 7 - no charge. Take a look as there is 'everything' seasonally available: private beach on Donner Lake, cross-country and downhill skiing, pools, hot tubs, sauna, steam room, massage, classes, ping pong, tennis, horseback riding, mountain and road biking, golf, nature walks, stunning hiking trails ... and the list goes on! To us, it's like a 5-star resort.

10 minutes drive from beautiful and interesting downtown old Truckee. Plenty of shops and restaurants to peruse. Lake Tahoe shores at Tahoe City is a pretty 15 mile drive down Hwy 89 (which parallels the Truckee River.) Very easy access to Hwy 80. Half an hour or less to Reno, NV.

20 minutes or so drive to skiing at Squaw, Alpine, Northstar and Sugar Bowl, downhill, and Royal Gorge XC.

No smoking or pets.

About Wendy

We are a family of four who have been going to Tahoe every winter to ski. Now that we have a place of our own we have fallen in love with the Tahoe area in the spring/summer/fall as well. It truly is a beautiful, magical place any time of the year.

Wendy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Wendy chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We met one another at Squaw Valley one morning before setting off to the ski slopes at Squaw Valley. My husband proposed on the spot where we met! All four of us now have many lovely memories of this whole region - skiing, sledding, snowman building, boating, hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, river rafting, sitting on the deck reading a book, playing board games, and the list goes on and on.

What makes this condo unique

We stayed at a friend's house in Tahoe Donner and funnily enough, had never been to TD before. We were so impressed with the Tahoe Donner amenities and its wide-open spaces. After looking at many different houses and condos, we stumbled across, in our view, this perfectly located condo and snapped it up. The location just cannot be beat for the conveniences, and we have lovely tree views out the back and it's quiet. When looking out the living room large window, it's like tree-camping, but without the tents and all that hassle! In the winter, we have easy access to the main road, Northwoods, which is probably the first one the city snowplows. It's fun to see the chipmunks, rabbits and birds play around right outside our windows as well as hear the sound of a golf ball being hit in the distance during summer.

Great Location & Personal Touch!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a wedding that was held at the lodge next door. It was an ideal location for that purpose, and was a really nice condo all around. We liked being able to walk around the beautiful area and would have made use of the family/rec center but experienced unseasonably cool (!!!) weather that weekend. The condo itself was great for a family with 2 young children (even with the stairs) and we had a situation where the owners really went the extra mile to return an item my daughter left behind. Highly recommend this location and renting from these owners!!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so glad you had a great experience at our condo and that it was handy to stroll over to the wedding at The Lodge. We like the fact that the condo stairs don't go "straight up" but instead curve around with a few steps in each "curve." It does make it more safe. I had a feeling that the mermaid was possibly something special and am glad she managed to "swim" home via the USPS to surprise your daughter!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect amount of space, great location to all the excursions we wanted to do. It was relaxing to have a pool available. We rode and hiked the trails, played golf, swam. My first experience with VRBO and it was awesome.

Beautiful, quiet, perfect location for getting to Donner and Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Beautify condo that's perfect for a weekend getaway. We were looking for place that we could get around Lake Tahoe easily. It's very close to Donner (10-15 min drive) and Tahoe is about 25-30 minutes, but an absolutely gorgeous drive. The house was exactly what we were looking for. The kitchen is petite, but has all the things you need. The loft was very comfortable, but must be okay with climbing a vertical ladder! We loved it. Thank you again for being SUCH a phenomenal host, it had everything we could have asked for!

Owner's Response: Thank you! The routes around Lake Tahoe do get crazy-busy during the summertime so it's nice to be in Truckee with all of its own special offerings (old town area, Donner Lake, hiking, biking, the Tahoe Donner amenities, etc) but with less traffic/parking hassle. Lake Tahoe is a wonderful place to visit and you should do so, but it's nice that you don't have to deal with the traffic on a daily basis. Yep - the loft is fun and cozy and the sturdy ladder is up the wall. We recommend it for "older children and agile adults only." The more I go up there, the easier it becomes. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Eric, Thank you! We're so glad you had a great time. We try to make the condo a "home from home" as much as we can and hope people enjoy staying there as much as we do. We love the view of the trees out of the big window, especially when snow is all around.

The perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

I'm really satisfied with this rental property, starting with Wendy and Mike, the owners! They were so pleasant and accommodating, from the beginning to the end! The property itself is really cozy and well located. The kitchen was fully equipped (dishware, glassware, pots & pans). High speed internet, cable, board games, everything was perfect! I would recommend it to anybody for a friend's getaway or to a family with kids!
