About the property

Vaulted ceilings, a river rock fireplace, and cathedral windows greet you at this serene mountain retreat. Look out upon a meadow and bubbling creek from the large, sunny back deck. Cook up a gourmet feast for your family and friends in the large, open, fully-stocked kitchen. Cozy up to the warm fire in the great room with hardwood flooring throughout or relax in the brand new 6-person hot tub (July 2015) while looking up at the stars. This 2100 square foot home is located on a quiet side street with very little traffic yet close to all the amenities of Tahoe Donner.

If you're looking for a house where you can be pampered with comfortable hotel-style linens and towels, hotel-style supplies (starter pack of toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels, soaps), all new mattresses, supportive pillows, and real cooks tools, this is the place for you.

Enter on the second floor which hosts the great room (living room, dining room, kitchen), master suite, laundry room, half bathroom, generous shared deck with brand new hot tub, and attached 2 car garage. Continue downstairs to 3 additional bedrooms, full bathroom, and entry to the backyard meadow.

* The Trout Creek Recreation Center with swimming pools, hot tubs, sauna, steam room, gym, spa, and snow play is less than a mile away.

* The private beach club at Donner Lake is about 3 miles away.

After a full day, use the free wi-fi, watch cable or DVDs on the HDTV in the great room, play XBOX360 or Wii games on the full TV/gaming system downstairs, curl up with a book from our library, enjoy a game from the stocked game closet, or relax and BBQ on the deck overlooking your own meadow.

What makes this house unique

Our family has spent the last 15 years visiting Tahoe year round via day trips, vacations, and ski leases, and we wanted a place our kids could grow up with away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We loved this house's quiet street, peaceful setting, and family-friendly layout. It's also in the middle of it all - the Tahoe Donner amenities, miles of hiking trails, and all the outdoor activities that Tahoe has to offer are all so close.

Great place for a family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Susan's house! It was so thoughtfully prepared - everything we needed and all easy to find. The hot tub was great and so was the location and layout of the home. We would gladly stay here again!

Beautiful mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Awesome home! Very well appointed and beautiful!. Increadably comfortable beds (in the king and double beds). Kid’s loved the bunk room! Hot tub was very nice. The welcome basket was an extra special treat!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the cabin. From the welcome basket, personalized hints on what to do during our stay, the hot tub, a fully equipped kitchen to the comfortable beds and common areas, everything was amazing. Tahoe Donner amenities (pools, private beach at Donner, etc.) were also a big plus. Will definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

It's always scary renting a property in an area you don't know with just pictures, to enjoy your vacation without any issues. That fear was completely extinguished when, I not only read the previous reviews, but also had conversations via email with Susan. This property was exactly what it was described to be, and so much more. Simply put, it was amazing. A perfect location with the added benefits of the HOA Amenity center. A quick 30 min drive to Lake Tahoe and 10 mins to Donner Lake and Donner Memorial State Park. The house was perfect with all the luxuries of being at home. All we had to bring were ourselves and food. Susan and Jim have thought of everything that a family would need and have it in the house, ready for our use. We had an amazing vacation at this perfect property and can't thank Susan and Jim enough for putting their house up for our use and all of the amazing thought and detail that went into their house. We definitely recommend this house and we will be back for sure!

Fabulous House for several families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 4 nights over spring break - 3 families with a gaggle of kids. The house is wonderful - the room with the 2 bunk beds is perfect for kids (or one family with several small kids). The kitchen is well appointed (well-kept knives and a good selection of pots, flatware and silverware) so we were able to enjoy meals at the house as a large group. There are fun toys, books and games for kids! The backyard was super fun for the kids - we had plenty of snow, so all the kids were able to play in the "backyard" with sleds and have some general snow play and exploration. The slight drawback is that the backyard is only accessible through one of the downstairs bedrooms, but that's a very minor inconvenience, in my opinion. Overall, a truly fabulous house if you travel as a group with kids.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property. Lots towels, great smelling hand soap, little toiletries provided, and an awesome welcome basket that included some thoughtful things and yummy snacks. There was a binder with a lot of info on local things to do. The hot tub was really nice. The place was very clean. We didn't really use the kitchen, but they seem to have everything in terms of tools. There is a door from the master bedroom to the hot tub on the deck. Whoever stays in the master bedroom should be ready to share their bathroom (you have to go through the master to get to the bathroom. The master bedroom is upstairs, and there is also a small bathroom without shower upstairs in the common area. All the other bedrooms are downstairs and there is only one bathroom down there to share among roughly 6 beds. A few of the people that stayed in the bunk room thought that the mattresses were uncomfortable, but I'm not sure if it was the quality or preference. We had no kids with us, but the house seems really kid friendly; there was a little gate to block the staircase, the kitchen cabinets had child proofing, etc. I would highly recommend this lovely home.
