About Amy

Our home in Tahoe Donner has proven to be a blessing for us, our children, & friends! We savor our peace and quiet, but enjoy participating in the variety of year-round activities available in the immediate area. Our hope is that you will be as blessed in our home as we have been!

Amy purchased this house in 2013

Why Amy chose Truckee

Our home is located on an easily accessible street within walking distance (approximately 4 blocks) to Trout Creek Recreation Center. We really enjoy Tahoe Donner and all the year-round family-friendly amenities it offers!

What makes this house unique

When we purchased the home we fell in love with the open feel and beautiful pine beams and support structures. We added wood floors in December, 2013 and love the warmth and cozy feel of how everything comes together. The backyard also offers a peaceful, private wooded setting with majestic pine trees and the recently expanded and updated deck offers an idyllic setting in which to enjoy the surroundings.

Beautifully appointed, welcoming retreat nestled in the forest

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this amazing cabin over the long weekend. It was perfect for kids, the double bunk beds, great toys, chalkboard, huge oversized beanbag were big hits. The back yard was wonderfully accessible at ground level, had a spacious deck with a gate to contain little ones and super visibility from the kitchen and living room area to watch kids as they frolicked in the magical forest. A mama deer was camped out in the thicket behind the house and provided great entertainment. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed even a Keurig machine for our morning coffee. The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom was spacious and inviting. Amy was wonderful to communicate with and was very helpful answering all our questions. Tahoe Donner is a wonderful community with great amenities and I will recommend this rental to anyone I know wanting to get away there. Thanks Amy and family for sharing your cabin with us!

Exquisite house in Truckee! Perfect for our family Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

Amy was a pleasure to work with and the house is one of the best we have rented. It is very well maintained and stocked with everything you need. She even put up a Christmas tree for us before we arrived. The living room and dining room providing plenty of space to lounge around after skiing all day. Tahoe Donner is a beautiful area, close to multiple ski mountains and a beautiful place to take daily hikes. Highly recommend.

Five-Star Home, Host & Community

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented A's home for the month of July and it was as perfect an experience & home as one can hope for. If there is a PhD in hospitality - showing care for one's guests - A has it! From her communication prior to booking, to appointing her home with all of the comforts & conveniences one could want, to directing us to the many activities & recreational opportunities nearby, to making checkout a breeze, A was superb. Her home is chock full of so many amenities that we didn't even use all of them. We entertained friends for dinner frequently & they all loved the beautiful new deck & open living spaces. The scenery is spectacular and the recreational opportunities are nearly endless. If you're looking for comfort, style, scenery & Tahoe Donner recreation, this home has it all in spades. I hope you're lucky enough to stay here!

Fabulous, clean, updated home and thoughtful, responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids, and I along with my parents, just spent a wonderful snow filled week in this beautiful home. Tahoe experienced more snow than it has had in 50 years, but we felt safe and cozy inside. Amy (the owner) made sure we had everything we needed to arrive safely. She kept us updated on conditions and had shovels and melt away "salt" readily available so even my parents could get their 2 wheel drive sedan safely in the garage. This home has EVERYTHING you need for every season for both adults and kids. The snow was so high that we could not access the back deck, but there was still plenty of space. We were able to use their sleds and snow toys out front. My daughters (5 and 7 years old) had a fun time staying in the bunk room which even had fun night lights and a white noise machine. The play area in the loft was perfect and my kids spent the early hours of the morning playing there while the adults continued to rest. The master suite felt like a real retreat. My parents were comfortable in the queen bedroom on the main level. We had an issue with the drain in the main shower. I texted Amy late at night, just to let her know. A plumber arrived the next morning and fixed the issue. We will definitely be returning and hope to check out this home in the summer months.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. We were four adults and four kids, and everyone had ample space to socialize, relax, and play. We loved the open floor plan and the kids' play area upstairs, and the giant bean bag in the living room was a big hit with the kids. The kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed making most of our meals at the house. The beds were comfortable, and the electric blanket in the downstairs bedroom was a welcome feature. The back yard was covered with snow during our stay, but we took advantage of the snowshoes and sleds in the garage to hike among trees in the back. The location is conveniently close to Tahoe Donner and a short drive to downtown Truckee. Amy was a great host - incredibly responsive to our numerous questions, and generally very helpful. We hope to be back, and highly recommend this house!

I wish I lived here...

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this home and its host Amy. This is our second time staying here and we certainly plan on coming back again. Amy did a great job of decorating the house which gives the feel of contemporary/rustic atmosphere. Nicely upgraded hardwood floors, exposed wood beams supporting the upstairs loft, high ceilings, and warm fireplace all create a feeling of coziness bringing the whole family together.

As for the community, the list of amenities is endless. We took the kids to the community ski slopes which is five minutes away, sledding and snow play area at the Trout Creek Center, local restaurant and much more. In summer we would like to try their trails for biking and hiking, horseback riding and outdoor swimming pool for kids.

Amy is very responsive and takes care of all the issues (if any) right away. She also goes above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant stay. Thanks Amy!

Cheers, Russ and family
