Tahoe Donner Getaway- fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this rental which we stayed in for one week in mid-August. Check in went really smooth and the owner is very responsive. The home is fully stocked with all the amenities you need, it is high-tech, and has all the top of the line appliances you could imagine. The kids loved the media room, there was enough space for all of us to feel like we had our privacy and gather all together for social moments. Each room has it's own bathroom which is a real plus! Access to Tahoe Donner facilities is fantastic(choice of pools, beach club, amenities), although budget in that you have to pay a guest fee for adults. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to any of my friend of family for summer or winter stays.

Beautiful Home

  • 3 of 5

Even though we were told to wait until 4 PM to enter the home, we still had problems with the owners security system, but a friendly neighbor was able to help out. The second bottom bathroom's shower never did get hot, only luke warm, which was a slight inconvenience for the couple staying in that room. The home is very close to the main road, so it was a little noisy on the deck and also in the bottom bedrooms both during the day and early evening. Overall, the stay was very nice and the home was very clean and is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Lynelle, I’m sorry to hear you weren’t completely satisfied with your stay. I apologize for the alarm, it should have been off. Being that it was disarmed before I was even contacted by you or the alarm company, I assumed it was a non-issue. As far as the shower is concerned, I was surprised to read you had a problem, because I was never contacted during your stay. I immediately had the shower checked and confirmed the hot water worked. I would have gladly had my management company come to the house to assist had I known you had a concern.

Fantastic weekend with kids!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time at the home in Tahoe Donner. We have rented houses in Truckee over the past 15 years but usually we have ended up near Donner Lake. This is our first stay in at Tahoe Donner and it was a perfect weekend. The house was absolutely perfect for our 3 families (6 adults and 5 kids). The room above the garage with the projection television was as perfect as it gets for kids. Air hockey and a game system...our kids were in heaven! The kitchen/dining/living room areas were also perfect for hanging out. We did a puzzle, played a board game, and cooked a fabulous meal in perfect comfort. I would definitely recommend this house!!

Dream Vacation in a Dream Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting from Honolulu and meeting up with families from the Bay Area. When renting a home that you've only seen pictures of and not being able to feel the space prior, there's usually some apprehension. However, with this cabin it was a "Wow" from the moment we stepped into the home. The open kitchen and living room space is perfect for family/friend dinners and extremely comfortable for large groups.

The separate space in the entertainment room with the toys, games and that amazing movie theater like screen was fun for the kids as the adults hung out in the main living area. The kids were close enough for us to hear them but perfectly separate for the adults to have quiet adult time! The amount of sleeping areas and bathrooms were perfect for 3 families.

The finishes throughout the home are beautifully appointed. Bathrooms spacious, bedrooms are a great size, the room with the loft is a wonderful bonus space. Favorite part of the house are the windows from the kitchen facing snow covered trees!

Biggest challenge was getting the techie friends to figure out how to use the TVs and the devices around the house, instructions are in the house binder, still didn't figure out how to use the small TV in the master bathroom. But really, it's a none issue once you figure it all out.

I also want to mention how responsive the owner Joe Miller was to my many questions on activities around in the area like where to sled, which ski resorts to hit, how's the snow, how do we get in to the house, etc. He was patient, genuinely nice and easy to work with!

This house is amazing and I look forward to staying again one day!

Thank you Joe!

Great Winter Friends Trip

  • 5 of 5

Joe's house was so cozy and inviting. It was perfect for a 12 person friends weekend. Each of the couples got bedrooms but everyone else was able to get their own bed. The house with essentially 3 floors. 2 of my favorite things about the house was 1- the dining room was big enough to fit all of us comfortably so we could have big group dinners and 2- there was so much tech in the house! From almost every room you could sync it with your phone and play music surround sound. The boys loved the projector room -- there were consoles for them to play video games on. I would definitely book this house again next year! There were minimal rules in terms of clean up which made for an easy stress free stay. Thanks Joe!
