WALKING DISTANCE TO SKI HILL

Donner Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This 18-year old Vacation Home is two stories, 1950 square feet, with three bedrooms, two and a half baths. Our home is on a quiet street within walking distance of the Tahoe Donner Ski Hill parking lot and shuttle and has a large, flat yard surrounded by trees that makes for excellent snow play in the winter and volleyball or croquet in the summer.

The home is very clean, well-maintained and decorated with newer furnishings, art and antiques; yet it is child safe. Those who cook will enjoy the large, well-equipped kitchen and adjoining dining area that seats ten. The covered deck off the dining room is a great place to leisurely enjoy the outdoors during the spring, summer and fall or stay dry during the winter. The living room comes equipped with a stereo, 27' TV, VCR, DVD/CD player (and videos) and board games. There is a woodburning stove with an ample firewood supply.

The home sleeps up to eight. The large Master Suite has a king-size bed, comfortable recliner, 27' television/VCR, jacuzzi bath, and private balcony with great views. The second bedroom has a single/double bunkbed (and views of the ski hill!) The third bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed. There is an attached two-car garage with kitchen access and a mudroom at the front entrance. Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking please.

During the winter you are only a short drive from Tahoe Donner's terrific cross county skiing. North Lake Tahoe ski resorts (incl Northstar and Squaw Valley) are all within a 20-minute drive.

In the summer enjoy access to Tahoe Donner member facilities including the TD Golf Course, Tennis Center, Equestrian Center, Donner Lake private beach and marina, and Trout Creek Recreation Center and pools. See link below for more information on Tahoe Donner activities, amentities, and access fees.

Tahoe Donner is about 10 minutes from the mountain town of Truckee, which offers all major conveniences plus great restaurants and shops.

We reside in the SF Bay Area (Sonoma County). Mark is in the local wine business and Kathie works for a large Biotech firm. We've owned and enjoyed our Tahoe Donner property for several years and have successfully rented it over this time as well.

We made a decision some time ago that we don't expect rental income to cover the costs and therefore don't keep it rented all the time. We'd prefer to keep wear and tear to a minimum and therefore tend to shy away from very large groups, last minute deep discounts, etc. We always check to ensure our rates remain reasonable and amentites are competitive.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

We had stayed in various rentals around Tahoe Donner for many years. We love the area and wanted a home that would provide family time and memories. A place that was enjoyable in winter AND summer.

We wanted a home that was clean, comfortable, and not full of second hand furnishings. Lots of snow (house is at 6700' elevation), but without the wind of the homes on the hills or steep, winding, icy driveways.

Not only has this house has fit the bill for us in the above ways, we love the layout. Nice sized bedrooms, open kitchen to the large dining table, easy garage access, great covered deck off the back to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

An additional bonus is the Tahoe Donner location. Close to Truckee, Lake Tahoe and the big resorts, yet located off the 1st exit coming into Truckee. Saves us 30 minutes both in and out (and that's without weekend traffic!!) On a Friday night or Sunday afternoon this is a non-trivial benefit..

We have several favorite Tahoe Donner amenities. During the winter, the local ski and sled hills are fun and convenient.

In the summer, we enjoy walking and hiking the awesome trials, going to both pools, boating on Donner Lake at Tahoe Donner's private beach and Marina. While not golfers, this is one reason many owners buy and live here. Having a local Bar and Grill and a pizzaria is terrific as well.

We often go into Truckee for shopping and restaurants (favorite Mexican restaurant in N Cal is El Toro Bravo), drive around Lake Tahoe, or ski Northstar, Squaw or Sugar Bowl.

GREAT STAY FOR THE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house in a wonderful location. The owners were very easy to work with and happily let us put our food in the fridge/freezer well in advance of check-in time. The house had three bedrooms upstairs, one of which could sleep three children in their own beds. All the amenities you could need in the kitchen. There were even sleds and snowball makers for the kids to use. There was free wireless access, nice TVs in the living room and bedroom, a very spacious master bed/bath, and super comfortable couches. The house probably needs a deep clean soon (under couches, behind dressers, etc) but the regular living areas were clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Katrina, thanks so much for taking the time to review our property. And we're happy to hear that it met your family's needs including getting perishables into the fridge abit early. Unless we have another party arriving/departing, we try to be pretty accommodating on checkin/checkout times. Also, thanks so much for the feedback on the deep cleaning. Spring is almost here and we'll be sure to make note of that to our cleaners. Hope you had a great time and please consider us again in the future! Warm regards...Kathie and Mark

SKI WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Cute house, very clean and cozy! We enjoyed our stay for a perfect ski weekend with grandparents. Owners were responsive and helpful. ALthough we didn't ski at Donner it's literally down the street from the resort so very convenient for both summer and Winter activities.

Owner's Response: Hi Jody. Thanks for the very kind words about our property. And always happy to hear feedback on your experience working with us. (-: If only we could have controlled the weather and brought you more snow? The good news is we are higher in elevation and typically above snow level when it does arrive. And summer is beautiful and just around the corner. Thanks again and please consider us again in the future....Kathie and Mark
