About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

Welcome to the Sitzmark Family Home where 12 guests can enjoy endless Lake Tahoe activities and access to two member-only clubhouses. This Tahoe Donner vacation rental is perfect for everyone in the family!

Just 10 minutes away from Interstate 80 and historic downtown Truckee, this four-bedroom getaway draws you in with homey decor, while being close to Donner Lake water sports in summer, skiing in winter, and tons of indoor fun all year long. Having a cozy lodge feel while still being spacious and bright, your guests will love coming back to this rental year after year.

The living room and kitchen area is built for boisterous socializing around a wood-burning fireplace. Host family-style meals in the dining room under the striking deer antler chandelier, serve hot cocoa while watching cable or the big game on TV, cook burgers on the gas grill outside, and socialize over WiFi streaming music in this inviting common area.

With seven comfy beds, everyone will have a place to revitalize themselves for another day of snowplay. On the main floor you'll find the perfect kids' room with two double beds, as well as the master bedroom including a roomy king-size bed. Upstairs there are two more rooms and each hold a queen bed. One sofabed is conveniently located in the living area, while a second one sits in the bunk-like loft. And, if your group includes a baby, there's even a crib (stored in the master bedroom's closet).

For those sleeping on the bottom floor, there's an easily accessible bathroom with a standing shower, as well as the master bathroom. One more bathroom is upstairs. With three bathrooms total, there's minimal waiting. If needed, you also have a washer and dryer.

A short eight-minute drive away is the Tahoe Donner Clubhouse and Trout Creek Recreation Center. There, guests have access to sauna-equipped spas, pools, hot tubs, gyms, and more ( a small daily rec center fee may apply). Only 20 to 25 minutes away are some of the best Tahoe ski resorts, like Northstar California, Squaw Valley, and Soda Springs.

Get ready to bring the whole crew to the Sitzmark Family Home for a Tahoe Donner vacation you'll cherish!

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

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Old, dirty, need maintains

  • 1 of 5

Beautiful view from the backyar, plenty of supplies but very dirty property. A lot of spider web, A/C did not work and living room lights did not work

Owner's Response: This home doesn't have A/C and it is not listed as an amenity. We're sorry the guest didn't see the home as being clean, as it was inspected by our property manager prior to check-in. We are alway working with our housekeepers to improve our quality. The lights have been addressed and the home will undergo a thorough deep clean after the season. Thank you.

Sitzmark home review

  • 3 of 5

House sleeps 11-12 comfortably however the home appears older. Outdated TVs, rugs and furniture smell musty. Trash was left behind by previous tenants so this contributed to the foul smell. It gets really hot during the summer so be prepared to sleep with doors and small windows open. Electric fans are available however they are extremely dusty.

Not the best value

  • 1 of 5

Our large family rented three homes in this neighborhood--all of them roughly the same cost--this one was substantially below average compared to the other two. Even though the home was more dated--the real issues were maintenance. Dishwasher backing up in sink, shower without a handle, toilet paper rolls broken, lights, blinds & ceiling fans that don't work leaving the main living space much darker than it appears on the website--and cobwebs in many places.

Owner's Response: The property manager has plans to fix all of these issues. We appreciate this guest's patience in dealing with these annoyances during their stay.
