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. This property is clutter-cleared, giving your brain a break from the everyday grind ;)
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 Truckee
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!
What makes this House unique
We appreciate like-minded guests who have similar standards for quality. Our property is not intended to be an average hotel- we do what we can to make our home a base-camp for life-long memories. From first contact, we connect with guests to ensure that our place is right for you. If you’re in need, we’re so happy to offer suggestions of sites to see, bites to eat and anything else you can think of.

Very comfy and beautiful
Great home for seven adults. Clean, contemporary, nice furnishings, great location. Owners were very helpful and prompt to answer any questions. Would stay here again.
home away from home
We loved our stay at Naughty Pine house, and definitely look forward to coming back! The grandkids LOVED the bunkbed room and the game area, as well as the expansive back yard for snow play. I can’t say enough about the attention to detail and many comforts provided by Gerrit and Elle; this cozy house is so beautifully appointed and sparkling clean, it truly feels like a home away from home.
Cozy, Upscale Comfort
Our family of four stayed at this property with two other families during President's Day Week. Our first impression of this home was that it was upscale, spacious, comfy and extremely clean. The house has absolutely everything you need (kitchen and bathroom very well-appointed) and as far as the decorating, they have kept it refined and simple, so as to be appealing to the taste of all who stay there! Although not our original plan, we ended up spending a lot of time inside the house, and we repeatedly commented on how lucky we were to be stuck inside THIS house, as it was so comfortable in every way. We were a group of 11 and didn't get in each other's way at all. We were warm and loved sitting by the fireplace in the living area, the beds were very comfortable and the kids loved the bunk room. The kids had fun playing in the snow around the house. We went for a few really nice walks in the neighborhood around the house. We had no problem spending an afternoon at Northstar village (only 15 minutes away), having dinner in downtown Truckee (5 minutes away) and skiing at Boreal (10 minutes away). We had a couple of questions for the owners while we were there (we actually wanted to stay longer) and they were extremely responsive, before our stay and during. I truly recommend this property highly. Hoping to stay again next winter!
Fantastic house. Very well kept.
We stayed here with a few small families. It was perfect. There was space outside for the kids to play in the snow and plenty of things nearby to do. The finishes in the house were very nice and clean! This house is very well kept.
Just like home...but better
Naughty Pine is quickly turning into the spot for our annual Truckee weekend with friends. Gerrit and Elle are very responsive and want to make sure your stay is perfect. Can't wait to return next year!
Great place for a getaway with family
We loved our stay at this beautiful cabin. The grandkids had fun playing games inside and in the snow outside. The grandkids also enjoyed the bunk bed room where they slept and had their "own" space!! We were pleasantly surprised by all the amenities provided. We would definitely stay at this cabin again!!
