About Owner

We thoroughly enjoy our Tahoe Donner home and want to pass the experience on to you. Residing in Walnut Creek, California, the drive to Truckee is easy being the first stop off of Hwy. 80 as you enter the Tahoe area. From the Bay, the drive takes 3 hours up and 2.5 hours back. Options to fly into the Truckee or Reno Airport are also available. After renting in Tahoe Donner, we decided to purchase our new home. Our goal is to offer a beautifully appointed, well maintained and clean home to families as we came to expect as renters once before. Every time we walk in through the front door we instantly relax whether it be a

long week or a brief weekend stay. We know you'll feel the same!

Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner chose Truckee

Choosing Tahoe Donner was the best decision we have ever made. No where else in the Tahoe area do you have so many amenities with owning a home. With acres upon acres of forest in Tahoe Donner, you'll never have to leave! We drive up from the Bay on a Friday and immediately head to The Lodge in Tahoe Donner for dinner and refreshments on the golf course...sit on the deck in the summer or beside the fireplace in the winter. The food is delicious. Saturday morning we hike in the summer or snow shoe and cross country ski in the winter on the many trails right out our backdoor or downhill ski at the numerous local resorts. One perk is that there seem to always be activities and festivals scheduled for the Tahoe Donner Community to take in.

By the afternoon, our family likes to relax in our great room with views of tall pine trees or watch a movie on the big screen TV. Later, we head to the Rec Center for a swim and or just soak in one of three Jacuzzi pools.

By sundown, it's easy to take a walk on Main St. in Old Town Truckee and stop in for dinner at one of the local restaurants. We favor Marg's Tacos or Pianetta's. So many to choose from. Such a great area to vacation in!

What makes this house unique

Our home is decorated Tahoe style which puts you in the mood as soon as you move in. The stone floor entrance and willow wreath hanging on the wall sets the tone. Take a seat in the willow chair or the comfy pillow lined sofas in the great room and soak in the forest view through windows reaching the top of the pine, vaulted ceilings. Inviting friends? The dining table can be extended to seat 8 guests and the cabinets are full of glass ware and table settings to accommodate a crowd. Looking for privacy from your family and guests? Retreat to the private Master Bedroom with vaulted, pine ceiling and a large Master Bathroom for a bubble bath in the jetted tub or simply sit in the rocking chair while reading your favorite book. Plenty of large windows for natural sunlight. During Summer and Fall we open the windows to let the mountain air fill the home and sit on the deck in our full set of outdoor furniture with Café umbrellas. Light up the gas BBQ and you're set for a private outdoor dining experience for the evening. Turn on the Bose Speakers to play your favorite music to add ambience. You'll create you own Tahoe memories. It truly is a mountain home with every amenity you desire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great time at Tahoe Donner! Hoping to return next year and crossing our fingers for primo ski conditions. This home is a great location for winter fun!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just wrapped up our vacation in Tahoe. We had a great time staying in this property! The house is very well outfitted, very clean - ample space for our family. The location was just perfect - 10 minute drive into Truckee and 5 minutes to the slopes. We would definitely stay in this home again - thanks for helping to make our vacation a great one!

The perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house for our family of four. Plenty of towels, well stocked kitchen (with pots, plates, cups, glasses etc). The beds were comfortable and the house felt very clean. It was great coming in to the garage with our ski stuff. We took advantage of the Tahoe Donner amenities - cross country skiing lessons were fantastic for our entire family, we used the gym and pool at the rec center and my kids enjoyed playing in the snow at the tubing/sledding area. Cynthia was lovely to work with and gave me lots of ideas of things to do and places to eat while we were there. I would definitely book this house again!

We rent houses via VRBO quite frequently, and this was among the better experciences we have had!. The house is comfortable and very nice, everything was in place and super clean, and the owner was great! The layout was awesome for getting different branches of our family together. We would recommend this to friends for sure.

Tahoe Donner Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed seven nights in this absolutely amazing home. It is in a beautiful location, and is very well maintained. We had six adults and two kids staying there, and it fit us all very comfortably. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures, and is located close to so many great summer activities. We made use of the rec center, went for a hike to the old train tunnels at Donner pass, swam in Donner Lake, rented paddle boards and kayaks, road our bikes around the lake, spent a bunch of time on the back deck reading and relaxing, it was an awesome stay!! The owner was great, a pleasure to deal with!! We will be back!!

perfectly decorated, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a great time at this mountain retreat. We loved the convenience of the location, the house was the perfect size for our 3 small kids and dog. The furniture was essential and comfortable. the only negative is that the kids had no snow to play in the great outdoor space. I think we will be back in Summer to try it out and definitely in the Winters. Cynthia was a breeze to work with too. Sweet and friendly. thank you!!!
