We are a mountain loving family that has recently relocated from the East Bay to the Folsom area. We love to enjoy all the outdoor activities that Tahoe has to offer.

We have two kids that think of our place as their home away from home. We hope you enjoy yourself at our cabin as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Tahoe Donner has wonderful ammenities and is close to the historic downtown area of Truckee. Donner Lake is a terrific small lake that we enjoy and Lake Tahoe is a short 20 minute drive away. No need to sit in the Tahoe traffic to come to Chateau Chamonix!

We have a comfortable cabin that is on a quiet street halfway between the two Tahoe Donner recreation centers. Our place sits on a hill that is great for sledding, no need to drive to enjoy a quick sled down our hill!

GREAT FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with another family for a weekend. We have 5 kids ranging from 8mths to 10yr old. They were all well entertained with the games and dvds in the homen even the baby was happy to be in the activity saucer that was available. Yes you have to climb the stairs to get in, but it was not much trouble for us or the kids.
We had a great time! The home is close to Tahoe Donner for skiing and also Truckee for food.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here - it felt more like staying in someone's home than being in rented accommodation. There were lots of toys, games and books for children that easily entertained our 5, 7, 9, and 11 year old for a week - the mini foozball table was an especially great hit! There were eight of us and there was plenty of room - the dining-room table even seats eight. The layout of the house is really nice with all the rooms on one level and the three bedrooms all coming off a central hallway (no rooms tucked away in a basement or attic). Furnishings were nice with some very comfy sofas in the living room. Everywhere was very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils. The owners were very easy to work with and the rate very reasonable for the size and type of accommodation.

We like Tahoe Donner as the ski resort is perfect for children beginning to ski, Truckee is so close by, all of the North Lake ski resorts are easily accessible and the commute from the Bay Area is that bit easier. This house is nicely located off the main road but close-by so that you can easily get wherever whilst being on a quiet road up in the mountains. We will definitely look to stay here again.

COMFORTABLE, HOMEY ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
The house is very kid friendly and very comfortable. They had lots of "extras" that made the stay easy. For example, I forgot salt for the potatoes, but they had some along with a great selection of other spices if needed. Same with seran wrap that I used to wrap some sandwiches for our days. Not to mention the great sleds in the garage! Rooms are as described though the kids were pleasantly surprised to see a flat screen tv, and not the "old school" one as shown in the picture. There's a great selection of old movies and I was happy to share "the Princess Bride" with my kids!
The owners were very responsive to any questions or issues I had. Because of a blizzard we skipped skiing and they let us know when the house was available to get into as well as offering several suggestions as to how to kill the time. The location is very convenient to stores and Tahoe Donner ski area, and Sugar Bowl was only a 15 minute ride away. I would definitely recommend the house for families or even for a nice adult getaway.

OUR LAKE TAHOE VACATION 2012

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Bell Chalet, both in 2009 and recently in 2012. An excellent place for ski season, but we've enjoyed the place for week-long vacations in the summer. The house is very large, lots of room to spread out, its very clean and well maintained. They have included everything you need, the owners were responsive and helpful. Cant say enough, because it was perfect for our family to enjoy, while we spent most days at North Lake Tahoe at the beach. This is a great find!

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

Didn't Want to Leave!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are repeat visitors who have enjoyed this bright, spacious and comfortable home in fall, winter, and summer. Some visits are with family/friends and we take advantage of the many games and videos provided by the hosts. When it's just the two of us, we often snuggle up inside next to the warm fire with a good book (winter) or take a cold drink out onto the porch and enjoy the gorgeous forest view (summer). Although there is so much to do both at Tahoe Donner and in the nearby areas, we sometimes find ourselves not wanting to leave the comfort and peacefulness of this delightful family home. We're always sad when it's time to leave!
