THE LOG HOUSE IN TRUCKEE, CA - 5,250 SQ.FT. OF AWESOME!

Tahoe Donner House Rental Photos and Description

A fabulous 5,250 sq. ft. Log Home on top of the world in the Lake Tahoe area!

The Log House is a gorgeous privately owned 5,250 sq. ft. log home in Truckee, CA constructed in 2005. The house is located in the Tahoe Donner Association at one of the highest home sites available ... 7,250 ft. near the Glacier Point trail portal within walking distance from the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area. It has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, plus a loft with a very comfortable hide-a-bed which can be easily used as a 4th bedroom. A 3-car garage keeps your cars safe from our incredible winter snow storms!

The Log House itself is loaded with amenities and must be seen to be believed. The Great Room has 25 ft. floor-to-ceiling windows and gas fireplace to compliment the immaculate views. The kitchen is fully loaded with stainless steel appliances -- refrigerator, 48 inch range with 2 ovens, built-in microwave, dishwasher and coffee/cappuccino machine. The bar & rec room area has its own refrigerator and dishwasher, another massive fireplace, wine cellar, steam shower, and dry sauna in addition to a highly functional work out area with Olympic weights and a stair master. The top rear deck has beautiful stainless steel barbeque, fire pit, two propane heaters, ample seating and a specially designed area for the 10-person jacuzzi that is over 30 ft. above the ground and perfect for enjoying the massive views or the night stars.

The sleeping arrangements are as follows:

* Master Bedroom (king)

* Guest Bedroom (king)

* Guest Bedroom (queen)

* Loft (queen hide-a-bed - unusually comfortable)

We also have a very nice queen air bed for the last couple to join the group ... or the kids! The Master Bedroom has its own gas fireplace and opens up to the top deck only footsteps from the jacuzzi. Both guest bedrooms open up onto the lower deck area so that all guests enjoy the same massive views from the comfort of their sleeping quarters.

This home is not only defined by the massive 24 inch plus logs but the incredible 180 degree views of Mt. Rose, the Truckee Meadow, Northstar Ski resort, the Pacific Crest, and Donner Pass from its two rear deck areas.

Guests of The Log House enjoy all the member benefits of the Tahoe Donner Association, including the Downhill Ski Area, Cross Country Center, Equestrian Center, Campground, 18-hole Golf Course, Recreation Center, Clubhouse and Beach Club Marina via two Transferable Guest Cards (good for 8 people).

Lake Tahoe is only 20 miles away from the property and is internationally known for offering visitors a bonanza of recreation, restaurants, and attractions. With so much to do you may want to visit the Official Lake Tahoe Visitors Bureau websites for the information you need to plan your vacation to the Lake Tahoe / Truckee area. Between the property and Lake Tahoe you have multiple world-class ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. Locally, within 10 miles you have multiple smaller lakes accessible for boating, fishing, and water sports including Lake Donner, Boca Lake, and Stampede Lake. Outdoor recreation activities in this area are endless ... so come enjoy!

This is snow country so make sure you plan for you 4-wheel drive vehicle if coming up in the winter season. The severity of weather from the Town of Truckee up to the house can change radically in the winter ... so it is very important to be prepared!

This is no ordinary vacation rental ... the logs, the views, and the amenities of this area must be experienced in order to be fully appreciated. So come join us for a vacation in the mountains you'll never forget!!

The owner personally designed and built this beautiful home. The logs are Northern White Pine brought into the area from the Toronto, Canada. Eight semi-trucks were required to bring all of the logs into the US. The house is accented with beautiful granite, slate, and tile work, two log staircases, and an amazing salvaged wood floor made of 2.5 inch thick, 27 inch wide and 30 feet long planks cut from century old timbers recovered from a canal in Canada.

Rodney Recker purchased this house in 2005

This property is defined by its AWESOME VIEWS!!! We are on the top of Tahoe Donner at over 7,250 ft. elevation. On clear days the view extends beyond 50 miles -- over Mt. Rose, Northstar, the Truckee meadow, the Pacific Crest and even Heavenly in South Lake Tahoe!

NOTHING compares to the warmth of a Log Home with amazing fireplaces and incredible views on that crisp winter morning or lazy summer day! The decks and hot tub area allow you to gaze 'down' upon Truckee and the surrounding Sierras both day and night -- spectacular!!

Breathtaking, immaculate, super helpful owner

My family of three kids (age 5-10), my husband, and I enjoyed 5 days at the Log House over ski week. The listing was spot on and we really appreciated a detailed PDF of instructions prior to arrival so we knew what coffee to bring, if we should bring DVDs etc. The owner is super helpful and gave us pointers on where to do ski school with my kids etc. We communicated by email several times prior to our arrival and he responded right away.
Once we arrived the house was immaculate. Bedrooms spacious, clean, comfy beds (we are very picky).
I enjoyed cooking family meals in the state of the art kitchen. The hot tub with views of the mountains and slopes is dreamy!
I also really enjoyed some exercise on the treadmill in the mornings after dropping kids off at ski school.
We had friends over for card games, had long luxurious breakfasts over coffee.
Worth the splurge!

Amazing house

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 23, 2014

The house is amazing, a really beautiful pine log construction with a great rustic feel but all the modern amenities and then some. The location is also very good with hiking/cross country ski trails within walking distance and the major resorts not too far away. The owner is also very responsive and super easy to work with.

The only caution I would have is that the rooms don't have any curtains. This makes for a great view but it can be hard to sleep past sunrise. It also makes it tough as there is no privacy in the master bedroom from the hot tub without curtains.

Lots of space, well designed, beautiful views

The house is far up the slope of a mountainside in Truckee, and provided an excellent view of the valley around Donner Lake. The view from the hottub at night was particularly spectacular - the starry sky was easy to see with few city lights to impede it and it felt like we were sitting right at the edge of a cliff. The house is well appointed with high quality fixtures and design, and the big logs that make up the house are very impressive. Our party was relatively large - 4 couples with small kids and there was plenty of room for everyone to either hang together in the big main room or go off on our own for privacy in either the upstairs or downstairs. The owner provided excellent information on the house before our visit, was flexible with our arrangements, and was responsive to our many questions beforehand. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a family or friends vacation in the Tahoe area.

Perfect end of the summer getaway...

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful log cabin. We have 4 children under the age of 10 and the house was very comfortable for us. The decor of the home is top notch as is the view from the deck. The house is clean and has an appropriately stocked kitchen for preparing meals. We very much enjoyed the large hot tub with the unobstructed view of the valley below. Rod, the owner, was extremely pleasant, accessible, responsive and accomodating. During our stay we enjoyed the amenities Tahoe Donner has to offer, including both pools, the beach club, hiking trails and horse back riding. I would definitely recommend this home for families, or even a girls/guys weekend away.

My daughter's wedding weekend

Spectacular! Our family had the occasion to stay at the Log House over my daughter's wedding weekend. The place is magnificent, with sweeping views and every accommodation one could want. It is as amazing as the pictures depict, with five-star luxury accommodations all the way. The owner paid meticulous attention to every detail, from the way it was constructed to the decoration.
We were looking for a place that photographed well because we were taking pre-wedding pictures of the bridal party. Everyone was amazed when they walked in. And the photos are so beautiful!
We hope to return to The Log House and highly recommend the "experience," because staying there is so much more than just a stay at a vacation rental!
