About Carla Lieske

We love to share the serentity and adventure of our Tahoe Donner home. We love to hear from guests who have enjoyed the luxury, warmth and ease of vacationing at Chalet Sierra.

Carla Lieske purchased this Chalet in 2006

Why Carla Lieske chose Truckee

Truckee is a delightful mix of old west charm and modern convenience. It is so easy to reach, no matter the weather. As a neighborhood, Tahoe Donner has everything guests could need. The comminuty is inviting and welcoming. The streets are quiet and the houses are beautiful. In addition, our home is 20 minutes away from such wonderful ski resorts as Sugarbowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Boreal. In the summer, we are just a few minutes from swimming in Donner Lake at the Tahoe Donner Beach Club, or at our own Tahoe Donner pools. We truly feel that Chalet Sierra provides the perfect all-season vacation.

What makes this Chalet unique

Because we stay at Chalet Sierra ourselves, the house contains so many items that will make your stay perfect. The kitchen is stocked with extras to make cooking a breeze. The sheets, comforters and pillows are luxurious and cozy. There are dozens of movies for the kids (and many for grownups), and there are games, sleds and toys. We want our home to be beautiful and comfortable for every guest.

                                                                We stay here every year. It is a comfortable home with terrific access to wilderness space, minutes from all the Tahoe Donner fun, and the owners are terrific to work with. Highly highly recommended.

                                                                Gorgeous - the home, community and surroundings

                                                                The Chalet Sierra home is beautiful, clean, well appointed and in a perfect location for enjoying the beauty of Tahoe Donner. The owners have a informative binder of the trail maps and restaurants in the area. This is a very comfortable home. We are looking forward to planning a future trip.

                                                                Perfect Vacation Home!

                                                                Gorgeous home with all the amenities. It is very comfortable, clean, beautifully furnished and well-appointed. Plenty of room for our two families of 5.

                                                                The large balcony off of the living/dining was the perfect spot for our morning coffee and evening BBQ's. We also enjoyed the hiking trail right there off of the backyard! The location is quiet and super convenient to all of the places we wanted to visit...Donner Lake (private beach club access was amazing!), Squaw Valley & Lake Tahoe...just to name a few.

                                                                The owner is helpful and so thoughtful leaving a detailed binder not just related to their home, but recommendations of places to go and so many different things to do in the area!

                                                                We LOVED our stay and highly recommend Chalet Sierra!

                                                                Outstanding, comfortable, homey and convenient

                                                                This truly is a home away from home, beautifully appointed, impeccably clean, convenient, every conceivable need met, organized and simply a pleasure. Guests enjoy upstairs and downstairs rooms, baths, a garage for two, lakes, golf, and all Tahoe has to offer. One feels welcome and the owners are incurably helpful and accommodating. Highest recommendation!

                                                                I've stayed in many places in the Tahoe area, and this one was by far the cleanest, most accommodating of them all. It has an excellent layout for two families with kids to share. Everything was in tip top shape and again, SO CLEAN! Carla, the owner, was incredibly nice and immediately responded to every question I had. I was ready to book 5 more trips to this place while I was there! I will absolutely keep this at the top of my list for the rest of my Tahoe adventures. I'd book it right now if I were you!
