About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 13

North Lake Tahoe is waiting to be explored when you book a stay at this fabulous Tahoe Donner vacation rental. This mountain lodge rental sleeps up to 13 guests - perfect for large families or two families travelling together to celebrate the holidays, birthdays, or have a small family reunion. Just 10 minutes from Truckee and 25 minutes from Lake Tahoe, prepare to have the California trip of a lifetime!

This five-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom home is open and spacious, making it easy for all members of the group to mingle and spread out. The entry room is ready to hold all your sports gear, including skis, boards, sleds, and wet suits without getting the carpets dirty - anything that needs washing can be tossed into the washer/dryer! Gather your group around the flat screen TV for movie nights with the DVD player or game show nights on cable. Get the room warm with the little wood stove, and set the mood with online music via the in-home WiFi. If the adults need some alone time, send the kids downstairs to the den, where they can watch movies on the big couch, color, or play board games at the little table.

The full kitchen and dining room offer good traffic flow and plenty of seating: a banquet table for up to six guests and three more at the breakfast bar. The deck is a lovely option for cocktails or dessert in the summertime. The kitchen has enough space to have multiple helpers for prep and clean up - just place the dirty plates in the dishwasher when you're done!

Bedtime means spreading out into five fabulous rooms. The master suite is its own oasis with a reading nook, a king bed, and an en suite bathroom with a separate soaking tub and shower stall. The guest room is similarly cozy with a queen bed, a shared deck with the master bedroom, and a second bathroom with a walk-in shower and two vanities. Two bedrooms with four bunk beds each share the third bathroom, perfect for younger members of the family, and any extra people can sleep in the den on the futon or on the fold-out sofa.

Recreation is what makes this vacation rental so remarkable. The home comes with eight guests passes to the Trout Creek Recreation Center, just five minutes down the road (please note that daily fees apply). There are tennis courts and a fitness center, a pool, and a hot tub for soaking. Visit one of the two golf courses for some tee time, or visit Donner Lake for fresh water recreation, hiking, and cookouts. Drive 15 minutes down the road to Boreal Mountain Resort in the wintertime, and visit Truckee for groceries and miscellaneous items.

This Truckee vacation rental is ready for your next family getaway - welcome!

Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

Great cabin for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a getaway for my daughters 3rd birthday. The cabin was spacious and accommodated our large party perfectly. The kitchen was stock with all the pots, pans, baking items, etc we needed to cook up a feast for our group. Everyone loved the open and large living/dining area.

There were some cons with the property: many complained about the lack of warm water in the upstairs main shower and main floor shower in the guest room. The heater in the lower level room felt like it never shut off when set to a specific temperature.

My guest also complained about the mattress being very uncomfortable. Overall the rental was great, I love the large space. This property would be so much better if the owner upgraded or replace the bedroom mattress/furniture.

Nice rental for a group

  • 4 of 5

Three families stayed in this house very comfortably. There was plenty of space for everyone. The kids and dog loved exploring the woods behind the house. The rec center passes were a bonus. The kids loved playing in the hot tub and pools while it snowed.

The house is 15 minutes from several ski slopes, lots of options for beginners to experts.

They could use some upgrades like better mattresses and more kitchen chairs. The little soaps and shampoos were a nice touch.

Great amenity

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. It's clean and spacious. Air conditioner is working great. The living room and kitchen are huge. It's easy to find. We had 4 cars. 2 were parked in the lot and 2 were outside.

We would recommend this place to another friend. Thank you!

Very spacious house.

  • 3 of 5

This house is very spacious. It can definitely accommodate to a large group. The location was very convenient. It was close to many local shops. Safeway and Starbucks was less then 5 minutes away. Only complaints would be with housekeeping. Upon arrival trash cans in kitchen and livingroom was full from previous guest. And the balcony was a mess with the grill and chair knocked over with extension cord hanging from second floor down to the balcony and another trash bag being left outside. Furniture and appliances could be more updated but I verall our stay here was very comfortable. Make sure to pick up some wood for the fireplace. It keeps the place quite warm.
