About Vicki or David

We are a local family with just one rental property—a mom and pop operation. Friendly but not very high tech! We keep it simple and hope you will too.

Vicki or David purchased this house in 2005

Why Vicki or David chose Truckee

Tahoe Donner has it all Location (20 min to all ski resorts, 5 min to the lake, 5 min to town ) & Amenities ( Trout Creek, Donner Lake beach club, golf, ) but you still feel tucked into the woods. It's everything you go on vacation for. We love it, you will too.

What makes this house unique

Our street is a cul-de-sac so it is quiet with no traffic. Easy winter driving. Quick access to Alder Creek Drive to avoid Northwoods blvd. One level floor plan great for young kids or older folks. Flat level back yard for play. Open space behind & on one side. Great friendly street with a mix of permanent residents with children and vacation second home owners. Tahoe Donner Walking and biking trails that lead to Alder Creek are right down the street as well as great free sled hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful week - felt like home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We just came back from a wonderful stay at this beautiful house in Tahoe Donner. It was very clean and had a terrific layout. The kitchen was well-appointed (with the exception of measuring cups, which we just couldn't find for the life of us!) and we enjoyed some wonderful dinners. Our only real gripe with the house is that the wifi router kept going out and needed to be reset multiple times a day. That said, we might be the lame ones for insisting on working throughout our vacation! We were thrilled to see that the TV was a Smart TV with Netflix and our son also loved the Nintendo Game Cube in the bunk room. We got a ton of snow during our visit and were very happy with the snow removal service -they even shoveled out the front walkway and steps. We'd definitely love to return on a future trip.

nice place convenient to the slopes in Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The bedroom with the bunks is great. Bottom bunks are huge, which our boys loved. Plenty of games to play if you are snowed in and a well stocked kitchen. David was very responsive when we had questions, which we really appreciated.

We really loved our stay at David and Vickie's Tahoe Donner property. The location was excellent for our needs, and the house was tastefully decorated. All amenities were provided and everything worked well. We would love to stay there again, when the opportunity arises.

Wonderful Ski Week in Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Tahoe Donner for many years and this cabin is definitely one of our favorites. The owners were very responsive and provided all the information needed so we felt right at home from the minute we walked in. The location is on a quiet street with nice trees all around. The house is one story which is great during the winter as 2 story homes tend to be too warm on the upper floor and too cool on the lower one. The house was very nicely appointed and you can tell the owners really want their guests to be comfortable and enjoy their stay. We'll be back for sure!!
