• IDEAL STRATEGIC SKI LOCATION: 15-20 minute drive to Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine and Sugar Bowl - visit them all! Don’t get locked in to just one resort.

• Avoid Tahoe lake traffic during busy times - minutes from Hwy 80 access

• Near but not on Northwoods Blvd., one of the primary Tahoe Donner streets for priority snow clearing during the winter - don’t get trapped or snowed in like so many other Tahoe Donner locations!

• Easy, short, perfectly level driveway makes it a cinch in the icy snow. Snow clearing service for driveway included in the winter. Many other houses in Tahoe have sloped driveways in the winter making parking "exciting".

• Many other amenities including stereo, telephone, laundry, iron w/board, soaps, paper goods and all basic cleaning supplies.

• Just perfect, perfect, perfect.

With the unique combination and convenience of all the Tahoe Donner amenities, this premium vacation house is perfect for a single or multi-family vacation during any season.

In the chef-inspired kitchen, there's everything you could possibly want - large custom refrigerator, gas range, oven, common spices, ample counter space, champagne and martini glasses, a rice cooker, lots of platters, premium pans - both non-stick and stainless. Crepe pan, waffle iron, griddle + lots more. Lots of standard utensils.

In the great room, let the adults enjoy the LCD flat screen, have a cocktail party or BBQ out on the deck while the kids hang out in the downstairs suite with board games, video games, TV or DVD movies.

Grab a book from the shelf, and curl up on the large day bed with a nice cup of tea or coffee for a quite afternoon. Use the Nespresso coffee maker and milk frother for an exceptional latte or espresso at anytime.

On sunny days, take to the outdoor deck and enjoy the pine tree-lined scenery! There's a gas grill for summer barbecues.

After a day of skiing, hiking, or biking, you'll have a good night's sleep here in one of the three luxurious bedrooms. And while this amazing Lake Tahoe vacation rental will definitely provide lots of great memories, you'll have so much to do here in the popular Lake Tahoe region!

This historic town of Truckee boasts shops, galleries, and restaurants - foodies will be sure to find a hidden gem for a memorable meal out. In the summer, make the short drive to Kings Beach to play on the sand, take a lake cruise, or just enjoy the sights of crystal blue Lake Tahoe. And just a few miles east, across the Nevada state line, you'll find casinos like Crystal Bay for more entertainment options.

The property is part of the Tahoe-Donner Homeowners Association. Guests (for a nominal fee) will have access to the private community pools and spas, tennis courts and clubhouse amenities as well as the private beach and boating marina at Donner Lake. As part of your rental you will have a discount at Tahoe Donner's horseback riding stables and golf course. Enjoy beach chairs down at Donner lake or take a short drive to beautiful Lake Tahoe. Additionally, Tahoe Donner is home to many other community activities including cross country skiing, local downhill skiing (5 minutes away), sledding, rafting and hiking. It is also convenient to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Boreal, and Northstar ski resorts and quaint old town Truckee with it's many restaurants and shops.


1. Description of property is subject to change at any time without notice.

2. This property is conveniently located within a minute's walk to a restaurant, bar, golf, deli and health club but also close to Northwoods Blvd - one of the access roads for the development. Expect some road noise as a result.

3. There are enough beds for 12 people but the house will be pretty full with 12. Hopefully everyone gets along :)

Some RULES :)

1. Keep this home nice for the next guest - please tread lightly

2. This is a no shoe house - bring slippers or walk bear foot on the heated floors


4. No pets allowed - sorry!

About Robb and Andrea Moore

Andrea and Robb have lived in Northern California for most of their lives. As the children of immigrants, we're living the American dream as our parents had hoped for both of us. We have a small, growing family in the foothills about 1 hour from the Tahoe area. We're both very excited to make this property available and ensure that you'll make memories here that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Robb and Andrea Moore purchased this house in 2014

Why Robb and Andrea Moore chose Truckee

After checking out dozen and dozens of homes for sale, this house was simply the best on the market. From the top quality construction, soaring ceilings, tasteful design and fixtures, this house immediately stood out as exceptional. As with all real estate - location, location, location was the real selling point. The best of the Tahoe Donner amenities are steps away, across the street. All the other amenities are minutes away plus access to the very best North Shore has to offer without the crush of traffic around Lake Tahoe during busy times. It's just perfect.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional location. Steps to the pub, Truckee's best restaurant, deli, store, golf and rec center. Easy access during snowy times. Avoid long traffic jams around Tahoe. Easy Hwy 80 access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andrea's home is absolutely incredible. I stayed there for the weekend with my fiancé and four friends for my Fiance's 30th birthday. It was the perfect location to relax and celebrate - the house is stocked with fun games (including Settlers of Catan, of course!) and the kitchen and dining room are perfect for making a big, festive meal. We enjoyed utilizing the Tahoe Donner rec center as well! Communication with Andrea was incredibly smooth. We highly recommend this Airbnb for anyone looking for a spacious, well decorated and perfectly located Tahoe home!

The perfect house for our wedding getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful and all necessities were provided. The home owners were very helpful and responded very quickly with any questions. As well as the amenities and activities included with the guess passes kept us busy. I wish this house wasn't for sale so we could keep coming back. If we could buy it ourselves we would this Home is absolutely perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments as we strive to be the best for our guests! AC is pretty rare in the Lake Tahoe/Tahoe Donner area as there really are only a couple weeks per summer where it gets very hot. Sorry it was hot for you in the house! Also, the fridge does have a water dispenser, it is on the inside on the left side...

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Two couples made this our home over the President's Weekend. One of our group likes to swim in the morning, so location close to Trout Creek center was great for that. The house was well equipped and Andrea was very very responsive to the few questions we had. One tip: make sure you set the heat to the temp you will want for the stay, because the heat comes from the floor, bare feet/slippers are great, but it doesn't adjust quickly!

Owner's Response: Thanks for you nice review Lisa! We are so happy you had a nice time and could also use the wonderful facilities that Tahoe Donner has to offer. Our home has radiant heating, which is in the floors. It is so lovely to have a warm floor to walk on in the winter, and we always preheat the house prior to guests checking in so it is nice and warm when they get there. The nice thing about the place too is that the fireplace can give more immediate temperature changes, as well as opening windows in the event one would like cooler temps...

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We filled this house with family and it held us all perfectly! It is as lovely in person as the pictures show. The location is great and very close to plenty of restaurants, groceries, etc. Andrea was very responsive to questions. A couple of area tips--don't spend the money on Tahoe Donner Beach Club. It was tiny, cramped, crowded and expensive with no parking. The public beaches right next to it looked spacious and much better. The Trout Creek Recreation Center is a short walk from the house and is GREAT! Nice facility, great service and great hours.
