About the Property

Hot Tub, 2 masters, 4 BR/3 BA, loft, sleeps 14, 2-car garage, huge flat driveway

Wake up in a beautiful wooded location, with sunshine streaming through the trees. We have the perfect location about 1/2 mile from the Rec Center yet off the main roads. Serene and peaceful, nearly half acre lot set back from the low-traffic street among the pines. We are on Roundhill Drive. Our street is very quiet, and the lot backs to a large greenbelt. You will really feel like you really got away from it all!

Looks like it's going to be a great snow year. We are about 11 miles from Sugar Bowl, and about 14 miles from Squaw Valley or Northstar. Get your powder on!

Private Hot Tub for 6 right behind the house. Soak under the stars and among the trees! NEW CARPET throughout the house as of April 2015. :)

Gorgeous 4 bedroom home plus loft, 3 bathrooms (two master suites - one with a big jacuzzi tub, the other with a huge marble rain shower). 1 king, 2 queens, 4 twins + 2 sleeper sofas. The bedrooms have BLACKOUT SHADES so you can sleep! :) The downstairs master bedroom has a new (as of Dec. 2014) queen-sized Memory Foam mattress, which get better reviews than regular mattresses. Also a new sleigh bed in that bedroom.

Beautifully furnished, fabulous location close to convenience store + Rec Center, where you can use pools, hot tubs, golf course + other Tahoe Donner amenities for a small fee. Spacious great room with wood cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light. We have a beautiful piano, which is conveniently tucked away out of the main thoroughfares in the loft. Awesome wood stove, firewood is available at nearby Z Marketplace, Safeway, or ACE Hardware. Laundry downstairs, tucked under the staircase with easy access to the garage. 2 car garage and huge flat driveway can accommodate many cars.

Two large flat-screen TVs with DVD/Cable. One Smart TV is in the upstairs master bedroom. Non-Smart TV in the great room. High-speed WiFi Internet access.

Nice deck perfect for BBQ, gas grill brand new as of summer 2014. Patio dining table available during the non-winter months, also new as of summer 2014.

Important: This is NOT a party house, and we strictly enforce the rental agreement. You may not have more than the reserved number of guests on the property at any time (day or night). There will be no loud noise or music after 10 pm or before 10 am. This is absolutely a NON-smoking property, no exceptions. Violations of the rental agreement will result in forfeiture of the security deposit, so please read it carefully.

Check in time is 6 pm. Checkout time is 11 am. During popular seasons, we often have back-to-back rentals, and the cleaners need every minute to get the cabin ready for you. If you want to ensure early check in or late check out, please reserve an extra day on either end of your reservation :)

We supply linens and basic kitchen stuff like pots, pans, dishes, flatware. Guests must bring their own additional supplies as listed in the rental instructions. Please do read the instructions carefully. With 12 years of successful rental experience, we do our best to strike a good balance between keeping fees reasonable and making sure everyone has a great visit to the house. We can customize your stay with added services if you let me know ahead of time.

Nearby attractions include Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, historic downtown Truckee, casinos, Reno, bike paths, hiking trails, x-country skiing, etc. No smoking. Pet friendly, please inquire. This is MUCH nicer than your typical rental home. We look forward to your visit to our lovely home. :)

We are pet friendly and charge a modest fee to help cover the inevitable extra costs of having pets here. Please inquire.

I invest a lot of money in keeping this house nice. In 2015, we invested $12K in brand new luxury carpet. It feels so good and soft under the feet and freshened up the look of the cabin :) In 2014, we invested a similar amount of money upgrading the back deck to Trex, giving you plenty of space to enjoy the hot tub and the lovely woods behind the house. We so appreciate you treating the house with tender loving care so we can keep it wonderful for everyone who visits.

Please ask about our repeat guest program. We are pleased to offer a discount on your next stay with us, if our first visit was mutually satisfying. We so appreciate our guests who treat our home and us with respect and consideration :)

Ski Lease Applicants: Generally, we have such high popularity for short-term rentals that this house is NOT available for ski lease. If you would like to rent the house from Jan. 2, 2017 to April 30, 2017, the rate will be $24K plus cleaning fees and deposit. Includes reasonable utilities and snow plow. It must be paid up front by check or wire transfer and is non-refundable.

"This is the nicest house we've ever rented in Tahoe!" December 2014, just got off the phone with my latest rental party, and that's what she said verbatim. It feels great hearing that because I spend time at this house during the off season keeping it BEAUTIFUL. I want my renters to have a wonderful experience.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hi, I'm Erika! I love skiing and the outdoors, and I love sharing this beautiful house with my renters. :) We love creating a beautiful place for people to stay, we love when people have great experiences with us, we always strive to keep things running smoothly ... and we also appreciate when our guests recognize we are human too and work with us compassionately on anything that arises. Cheers.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
As soon as I saw this house, I knew this was THE ONE. I could see its potential. Due to its prime Tahoe Donner location, there was a bidding war so I put in a bid well over asking price and got the house! Since then we have lovingly updated, remodeled, and improved every single year - and we love it! You will too :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the most beautiful lots in Tahoe Donner. Set back from the road in a very quiet neighborhood. Nearly half an acre. Serene and peaceful with tremendous privacy and access to a large greenbelt behind the house. Note about allergies: Please note this is a PET-FRIENDLY house in a wilderness area! Dogs, cats, and other animals may have been in the house recently. We cannot guarantee that people with allergies will not have reaction either due to pets or the heavy pollen we get in Tahoe. Sometimes there is also smoke in the air from wildfires. The air also gets very dry up here at high altitude, especially during the winter. We recommend alerting your guests to this issue and bringing a humidifier and/or air purifier if this will be more comfortable for you. :)
