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 time and 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. Beyond the money invested, I spend several months at the property every year deep cleaning, upgrading, repairing, and maintaining. We so appreciate you treating the house with tender loving care so we can keep it wonderful for everyone who visits.

For New Year's Eve rentals, a supplemental $1500 security deposit will be charged in advance. We need to make sure the house is treated with loving care so that our next guests will get full enjoyment from their stay. Thanks for your consideration :)

About Erika F.

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.

Erika F. purchased this House in 2004

Why Erika F. chose Truckee

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 :)

What makes this House unique

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. :)

                                                                  Didem M.San Jose, CA

                                                                  We loved staying in this beautiful house. It is on a lovely quiet street and the house is surrounded by tall pine trees, so it felt like we were in the forest, a perfect getaway. The location was very convenient, just a short drive away from Safeway and Truckee. Our two dogs loved taking nice long walks around the neighborhood. The house has a great layout, a spacious great room has a beautiful view of pine trees, two bedrooms and a kitchen on the main floor and one master bedroom as well as a cozy sitting area upstairs. But the lower level master bedroom topped it all, a gas fireplace, direct access to a deck and hot tub, and a spa like shower (which looked like it was very recently remodeled) made us feel like we were in a luxury spa. The owner, Erika, was very kind and responsive. We definitely would love to be back. Thanks Erika !

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hi Didem,

                                                                  Thank you so much for your kind words and five-star review. I'm so happy to hear that you loved your stay at our house. Yes, that downstairs master bedroom is such a pleasant place to spend some time. After a nice long soak in the hot tub, a person can retreat to the marble-surround shower. I run both hot and cold shower jets at the same time, with the fireplace making everything warm and cozy ... and ... yes, it is almost like a spa!

                                                                  Thanks for taking good care of the house. We hope to host you again very soon!

                                                                  Happy New Year!

                                                                  - Erika

                                                                  Lovely home, beautiful setting, quiet and peaceful

                                                                  Ana P.

                                                                  This home is beautiful and well laid-out. Both master suites are spacious and comfortable. Bed in downstairs master is very comfortable and works well for those with back issues. It's a gel/memory foam type. The property is very clean and well-maintained. Relaxing in the hot tub under a canopy of trees is amazing any time of year. We spend time at Donner Lake when visiting. Wonderful views from the lake and good for walking, swimming & paddle board/boat rentals (summer and early fall), picnicking, playing volleyball, jungle gyms for kids. It's about 3 miles from the cabin. Owner provided good customer service. Yes I would recommend to friends and family. When in Truckee, we have visited Lake Tahoe, gone swimming at King's Beach, skied at North Star, soaked at Sierra Hot Springs, hiked at Sugar Pine Point State Park on Lake Tahoe, and hiked up around the Donner Pass area. As to restaurants--Marq's Taco Bistro has great margaritas, good food and drinks at Drunken Monkey, Thai Delicacy's food is really good and takeout is available, Moody's Bistro and Bar has great food, drinks, coffee, atmosphere and live music (maybe on weekend evenings). Not sure how often Moody's does brunch, but the Mother's Day one we went to a few years ago was amazing.

                                                                  Beautiful comfy home in a gorgeous location!

                                                                  Wow, loved this place. The house was fully furnished for our little family to enjoy, and the hot tub (so great in the winter) and downstairs bathroom were amazing additions!

                                                                  The 2 master suites were wonderful, location was very quiet, friendly neighborhood

                                                                  Denise P.

                                                                  We truly enjoyed our 2 month stay, beds are comfortable, quiet location, convenient to get to recreation area, nice deck to relax and enjoy the mountain scenery along with the wonderful hot tub out back. Erika was very attentive to any of our needs. We'd love to stay again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks so much for the 5-star review - so much appreciated. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your two-months stay here in the mountains. Thanks for taking such good care of the house.

                                                                  We'd love to host you again.



                                                                  Quiet, Peaceful and Pet-Friendly Get Away!!

                                                                  Michelle L.

                                                                  We have stayed at this property several times and each time it actually gets better. The owner is always making improvements to make your stay as accommodating and comfortable as possible. The home has plenty of space, is exceptionally clean and is very welcoming! The location of the house is perfect. It is set back on the road and has it's own little drive way. Our dogs absolutely love it as well. We will definitely be coming back again!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hi Michelle,

                                                                  We were so happy to host you and your dogs again. We love animals and are proud to be pet friendly so those beloved four-legged friends don't have to be left in a kennel!

                                                                  Thank you for appreciating how much love we put into keeping the house well appointed. I try to keep an eye on things like when dishes or glasses that have gone missing and replenish the supplies, plus endless lists of repairs, maintenance, and deep cleaning in the off season.

                                                                  Giving credit where it's due: My family helps too. My brother meticulously upgraded the back deck to Trex and completed the rock work. My dad was here for several weeks in the spring cleaning up the yard of debris and pine cones and needles. It is park-like now. They love being appreciated, too.

                                                                  Hope to host you again very soon.



                                                                  Perfect Getaway!

                                                                  Jenny H.

                                                                  Fantastic place! Has everything you need plus a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. The house is walking distance from the recreation center, pool, trails, and local mini-market - which is very convenient, especially if you have kids. We loved it and are looking forward to coming back!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hi Jenny,

                                                                  Thank you SO much for the 5-star review! Yes, we love our location. That mini-market is a life saver when you're missing that one last ingredient for the amazing meal cooking in the kitchen. Or you don't want to face the crowds at Safeway.

                                                                  The Rec Center is right there, with yoga and Pilates classes, swimming pools, and so much more. There is also a small acupuncture and massage studio in that complex. I love the community acupuncture on Monday nights.

                                                                  Plus with the house being set back from a quiet street, the privacy and silence is so wonderful.

                                                                  Glad you enjoyed it! We would love to host you again :)
