Fabulous trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a long holiday weekend to celebrate my 60th birthday with my 3 children, their significant others and 3 grandchildren (2 boys 14 and 13 and 1 girl 14 months). We had a total of 9. The house included a crib and a pak and play as well as 3 baby gates which was perfect for the little one especially with 3 floors. The kitchen was well stocked for plenty of people. Most days the driveway was plowed, the last day there was a lot of snow but we were able to get out of the driveway with chains or 4wd. It was nice to have one of the garages available to park one car especially to load and unload. Bedrooms were great and very comfortable and the bonus room with the pool table was a lot of fun. We even did some sledding behind the house. I also took the opportunity to hire a photographer for some family pictures in the snow and the forest in the back of the home was great for our pictures. We plan on returning again next year!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house during the Labor Day weekend (2 families 10 people). The house was totally awesome in every way! It is huge, beautiful, very clean and well decorated. The owners are very nice and considerate and make sure everything is well stocked. Great location for sightseeing at Donnor Lake and Tahoe lake. We would definitely visit it again when we go to Tahoe next time.

Awesome Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this lovely house the other weekend! Thank you Brenda and Robert for letting us stay :)

Our immediate reaction when we walked in was how spacious the place was. There was plenty of room for our large group and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for cooking all our meals (when we didn't want to venture out in the snow). Another great thing was having the hot tub to come back to after a long day of snowboarding.

Overall, it was definitely a 5 star stay!

GREAT family home rental in popular Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Brenda and Robert for making our New Year's stay in your home a great family memory! The home is well appointed and suited all of our bedding needs and the gourmet kitchen was so well stocked with dishware and utensils and appliances, it rivaled home. Knives worked, dishes matched and glassware was quality!

We loved using the hot tub and enjoyed the adult family room with fireplace and no TV, while the kids enjoyed the pool room and tv and big space below to hang out.

Access in and out of the home's driveway was easy due to the relatively flat slope, compared to other drives which resembled sides for your car - which can be scary when that beautiful snow and ice come!

Thanks for being so responsive when we had "user error" questions - felt great to be communicating with owners who care for their property and their guests' comfort! Happy New Year to you both!

Beautiful property! Amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were amazing. The property was beautiful. Any inquiries I had the host answered promptly. There were many amenities near by. We enjoyed the beautiful view and many activities in the home. The teenagers barely touched their cell phones the entire time. That is a big deal with our family. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for an amazing vacation, beautiful home, and all around excellent experience.

Our group of 10 had a great stay! This house fits our family very well and is very comfortable.

The layout allows for group time and privacy. The 3.5 baths are perfect!

The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots pans etc. and has a great set up for large groups.

Responsive and flexible owners - Thank you!

Highly recommended!
