Welcome to our Tahoe Donner Vacation Home

Our tastefully decorated 1100 square foot 3-bedroom, 1.5 bath home is nestled on a quiet street in the Tahoe Donner neighborhood of Truckee, CA.

Tahoe Donner offers outdoor activities year round. In the summer you will find hiking trails, mountain bike trails, golf courses, tennis courts, an equestrian center, swimming pools and hot tubs, archery, bocce ball courts, and a recreation center with a fully equipped exercise facility. Located on Donner Lake is Tahoe Donner’s private Beach Club Marina, where you can lounge on the beach club chairs, swim in the lake, rent kayaks, pedal boats, stand up paddle boards and more. There are two shallow play areas for younger children. Lake Tahoe with its many amenities is a mere 30 minutes away.

In the winter months, enjoy the Tahoe Donner Ski Hill, located a few miles from our home, a small gem for families where lessons start at 3 and everyone under 6 skis for free. Tahoe Donner also offers the largest cross-country ski facility in the Tahoe area. Trout Creek Recreation Center offers a year-round heated outdoor pool and hot tub and the driving range is converted to a sledding hill in the winter months. Within 20 to 30 minutes you can visit the world-class downhill ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, and Sugar Bowl, to name just a few.

Our home is situated on a flat lot (1/3 of an acre) that is plowed in the winter months. One room has a king bed, the second room has two sets of twin bunk beds, and the third room has a twin bed. Our home sleeps six people comfortably. A pak-n-play and high chair are available. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens are provided. There is a TV in the living room and small TVs for DVD viewing in two of the three bedrooms.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this comfortable, clean, well-appointed home. We loved the eye for detail in the kitchen amenities, the extra street level parking (great for snow!), large TV, and the large quantity of linens. The owners were a delight to work with. We visited during a lot of snow, so the home's proximity close to a main road was also a major amenity. We recommend it highly.

Cozy Tahoe Donner home

  • 4 of 5

Love the cozy house, we would stay there again.

It was great for the 4 of us.

The resort was close by as were the grocery stores and some restaurants.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home.

Perfect for the family.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just the perfect size for our family and so close to everything.

The children loved their room full of books, games and movies.

We had a super quick trip but enjoyed the cozy house when it was time to relax in the evening.

Thank you for making us feel right at home. We hope to stay again!

Great cozy family get-away spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really lovely weekend here! The house is cozy and nicely furnished for a family to enjoy. There were plenty of board games, books, and videos to entertain ourselves with during some quiet time. The kitchen was well stocked with basics and good equipment. We really appreciated that since we cooked/prepared all of our meals while we were there. Some VRBO homes have only garage sale/second hand items in the kitchen, but Estee has supplied this one with quality items and everything we needed was on hand. That made our trip so much easier! The kids enjoyed tromping in the snow around the house and on the nearby trail. We borrowed the sleds and went sledding one morning on the fresh snow, and booked a day of skiing at Tahoe-Donner for one day. Everything was conveniently nearby and it was a great family trip. We especially enjoyed being able to turn on the fireplace to dry off and warm up when we came inside. The beds were very comfortable (our daughter told us on our first night back at home that she didn't think she'd be able to fall asleep after having become accustomed to such comfortable beds on our trip!)

We were a little worried that we'd be snowed in when it was time to leave, but a hired plow came and took care of the driveway by 9 am. The street itself wasn't cleared by noon, though, and we did need our chains to get up the little bit of a hill to the main road, where it was already plowed. Good thing we had packed our chains and were prepared. :)

This was a great place to spend a snowy weekend. Clean, well-maintained, comfortable and convenient with lots of amenities. Estee answered all of our questions in advance and we were able to have a great time. Highly recommend it!

Wonderful home for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this sweet, little cabin in Tahoe Donner. Our children loved their room with the bunk beds, toys, games and DVD's. We didn't have to bring anything to keep them busy. They used the sleds and went sliding right behind the house. The kitchen was well stocked and clean and the house was warm and cozy. The beds were incredibly comfortable. All of this made for a wonderful stay for the weekend. I would definitely stay here again.
