About the property

Built as a family retreat, no expense was spared in the upgrades & furnishings.

All new construction interior. Enjoy all that Tahoe Donner has to offer in this comfortable and inviting mountain retreat. This 4+ bedroom, 3 full bath mountain home is well-configured for relaxation in the home or as base camp for the dozens of activities that Tahoe/Truckee Sierras has to offer.

You will immediately be struck by the home's vaulted ceilings and open floor plan, which is ideal for entertaining and large family gatherings. The great room and first floor bedroom have easy access to the outdoor living space, which makes the home feel even more spacious. Relax in front of the fireplace and stunning stone hearth or soak up the sun on one of the large decks- one on the south and one on the north sides of the house.

This home comfortably sleeps 14. All the bedrooms boast ample storage space and premium bedding for sleeping in or a welcome slumber after a long day outside. The master bedroom suite has its own private bathroom, which includes a deluxe shower, and a fireplace. Also upstairs are two bedrooms that share a bathroom right outside their doors. One bedroom has two bunkbeds (full-twin combo), perfect for the kids and the other has two queen sized beds. The upstairs loft area is set up for quiet reading or a rousing game of trivial pursuit.

The kitchen features high-end appliances, a 36 bottle wine fridge, granite counter tops, a center island with seating, and is stocked with the basics! The dining table seats 8 and is perfect for long, lingering meals.

Our home is located 3 miles into Tahoe Donner and has a large back yard, complete with boat storage area and a horseshoe pit. It’s an ideal setting for kids of all ages to explore the outdoors within sight of the house. Hiking and snowshoeing are close by.

Guests have access to all Tahoe Donner amenities, including the Tahoe Donner Private Beach on Donner Lake. Significantly discounted rates for other amenities, such as the Northwoods Clubhouse which includes a tennis complex, outdoor pool, playground, and kids rec center / pizza restaurant. See TDA website for a more complete list. The home appeals to an outdoors-loving, active family, two families, or three to four couples.

Only 5 minutes from downtown shopping and restaurants, 10+ minutes to ski area resorts including Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar at Tahoe.

In addition to a two car garage (with rear door for securing a boat/snowmobile trailer) there is ample parking on our flat driveway for up to 6 cars. High-speed internet makes this home even more convenient. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Please note: We do not ski lease this property. Long term rental rates are the rates as stated on the rates page. There are no special, multi-month ski lease rates. Thank you for viewing this listing!

About Gerrit & Elle Wesseling

Mountain biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, if it's outdoors, we do it! Transplants from both sides of the Sierras, not a day goes by that we don't acknowledge how lucky we are to be on top of the mountain!

Gerrit & Elle Wesseling purchased this house in 2013

Why Gerrit & Elle Wesseling chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We entertain often and know that the payoff for the hardwork of our daily adventures is a fine meal at home (or at many of the outstanding Truckee restaurants), with friends and family. We constructed this home to encourage meaningful moments with a crowd or alone with your thoughts! Solid exterior construction coupled with an interior we could custom build to suit a relaxing retreat, we couldn't pass on this house!

Great family week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 6 adults and 5 kids for the Thanksgiving holiday and the house more than accommodated our group. The place was very clean and well stocked and there was plenty of space for everyone. There was a great space outside for the kids to play in the snow and we also were able to sled near the golf course which was only a 5 minute drive away. Truckee was a 10 minute drive and offered a lot of fun restaurants, bars and shops. The owners were very nice and welcoming. Small recommendation- better lighting in the great room for reading or doing puzzles at night, but we moved a light from the bedroom to make it work. We definitely will be back!

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house was the perfect setting for our college reunion. The house is spacious, incredibly clean, and well-furnished/maintained and provided a comfortable space for our group of 5 adults and 5 children. Adults and children were able to enjoy the house without getting in each other's way. The photos don't do the house justice, as it's roomier than the images suggest, with lots of natural sunlight during the day. The spacious and well-appointed kitchen allowed us to comfortably prepare group meals, which we enjoyed in the dining area or under the evening stars out on the outdoor deck. I highly recommend this house and definitely would rent it again the next time we're in Truckee.

Golf weekend

  • 4 of 5

Great house. Easy access with plenty of parking on a flat driveway. Big two-car garage. Perfect for a couple of families with kids or small groups. Clean and well-maintained. Nice kitchen for gathering around while meals are prepared. Horse shoe pit in back.

Owner was very responsive to questions and provided helpful suggestions.

Would highly recommend this house for your rental.

Lovely property with every detail attended to!

  • 5 of 5

My family group of 10 spent a 3-night stay at this beautiful home away from home last week. The house, and the owners, are warm and accommodating. The master suite with its fireplace, private back deck, and enormous dual-head shower is resort-worthy. All the beds are extremely comfy, with great pillows and linens. A very generous supply of fluffy white towels was provided.

Everything was spic-and-span clean, and the kitchen was equipped with absolutely every furnishing one could want, including a wine fridge, and plenty of dishes, utensils, bowls & glasses for even our large group.

The horseshoe pit in back spurred some lively competitions, and the game and book shelves in the loft area were put to good use.

We had a wonderful experience and are hoping we can make an annual pilgrimage to Naughty Pines!

A perfect family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house could not have been better. It was clean, well-maintained, and looks exactly as its pictured on the website. The owners were exceptionally easy to work with and easy to reach. We particularly appreciated that all the dishes and linens matched, the furniture was seemingly brand new and in good condition, and the house was spotlessly clean when we arrived. Our group of nine fit perfectly in the house. All in all, this is one of the best rental vacation homes I've ever seen.
