Our family and friends mean everything to us.

Lisa Capurro purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa Capurro chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This place met all of our needs...a solid, well built home in a nice location of Tahoe Donner, a great room with vaulted ceilings wrapped in wood, a comfortable one story home with a level driveway, a private master suite with good separation from the other bedrooms, a sunny deck, lots of pine trees, 2-car attached garage, a nice lot with some space between houses and on a great street with little through-traffic. This property had it all!

We love everything about Truckee. The historical downtown area is so magical and special, no matter what time of the year. We can easily spend all day there walking around and checking out the cool stores, eating at one of the many great cafes & restaurants, hanging out at a local coffee shop, or just sitting on a bench watching the river run and listening to the train roll through town. Short drive to Donner Lake, Northstar, Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows. Sugar Bowl is near-by. In 15/20 minutes you can be on Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

New furnishings including beds, linens, all new dishes, flatware, pots & pans. Well maintained one level home so it's a breeze to bring in luggage, groceries, mountain gear, etc. Nice flat driveway for several cars or a boat making it easy to maneuver if it's snowing. Airlock entry to keep the snow and cold out and heat in.

Perfect Home for our Family Getaway, Especially Location and Layout

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many Tahoe Donner rental homes and this by far was the most conveniently located. Tucked away just enough in the Tahoe Donner neighborhood and still with great access to the community amenities. In fact, the Snowplay area was only a 5 minute drive away. The owner was very responsive throughout the process. The house was spacious and since everything is on one floor there's tons of opportunities for family time. As for the backyard, couldn't have asked for anything better especially when you have three children. There's a small slope for sledding in the back and the backyard is within view of all the windows of the house so you can sip your coffee and watch the kids having fun. We will definitely stay here again.

The cabin is beautiful and spotless!!!

The furniture is almost new and everything is high quality. The kitchen has everything you need including spices, oil, hot chocolate, hot teas, etc.

Lisa, the owner, is wonderful to work with and is very accommodating.

She has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable and happy.

We loved our time here and would definitely be back when staying in this area.

Perfect Winter Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. Has everything you need, and a great location. Perfect for two families. Very comfortable and welcoming. The location is perfect for anything-close to Truckee, close enough to Lake Tahoe, great skiing for all skill levels close by. Couldn't have been happier with this rental and can't wait until the next time we need a place in Tahoe to return.
