About Melinda and Alan

We love to hike, ski, bike and enjoy friends and family. We've traveled all over, but have not found a place we love more in the world than Lake Tahoe & Truckee!

Melinda and Alan purchased this house in 2014

Why Melinda and Alan chose Truckee

Before purchasing this home, we looked for over 2 years in the Lake Tahoe area. We love that it is so convenient to so many things like Lake Tahoe & Donner Lake, our favorite towns Tahoe City & Truckee, all the major Ski areas, as well as all of the amazing amenities within Tahoe Donner. The house is like new and in excellent condition which can be a challenge to find in the Tahoe area. It's stunning, comfortable and we fell in love with it. We hope you will too!

Location and Service Driven Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love luxury rentals in the Donner Tahoe community and this home did not disappoint! This home has luxury fixtures throughout, fun indoor activities, and it’s very clean. Spacious interior and centrally located to Donner Lake, Tahoe, Reno, Etc. We went hiking, boating, swimming and experienced a two-hour thunder storm which was awesome. Melinda and Alan were transparent throughout the rental process and extremely helpful and service driven. We’re are looking forward to your next trip!

Beautiful, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, comfortable home. We stayed at the house over New Years for 6 nights. We were two families with five children ranging in ages from 2-8 years old. It was spacious and very clean (my husband says the cleanest garage he's ever seen!). The kitchen is large and perfect for group cooking every night. We had plans to go out to dinner but just wound up staying in and cooking as we were so comfortable staying home after our long days of skiing. Melinda and Alan were very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely rent this home again!

Owner's Response: We're so happy to hear that you had a great New Year's holiday at our home with your families and that you enjoyed your home-made meals using our gourmet kitchen. It is very cozy to stay in after skiing all day! We look forward to having you return!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights at this gorgeous, well-appointed home over Christmas with our three (grownup) children, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare big breakfasts and dinners and everyone slept comfortably, especially after spending our days skiing at Northstar and at Tahoe Donner and swimming and working out at the newly renovated Tahoe Donner fitness center. We appreciated the cleanliness of the house and the attention to detail. Melinda and Alan answered all our questions in a timely fashion, and it was a pleasure doing business with them. The place is so well-kept that it seemed brand new. Can't wait to book our next stay!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to hear that you had such a great Christmas holiday at our home! The facilities (gym and pool, etc.) are really great at Tahoe Donner so we're glad that you took advantage of them. You had lots of snow for some great skiing at nearby Northstar! We try to keep our house in tip top shape so we're especially happy to hear that you noticed how well kept it is. We look forward to your return!
