About Lara WIlliamson

We are native Californians with family living in Tahoe Area. Through visiting our family, we have come to appreciate all of the seasons in the Tahoe. We love the lakes and the water sports in the summer, skiing in the winter and spring and hiking in the fall. We live in the Bay Area and it is an easy drive to Tahoe Donner.

Lara WIlliamson purchased this house in 2012

Why Lara WIlliamson chose Truckee

The house gets tons of natural light and in a beautiful wooded setting. The size of the house allows us to enjoy with family and friends. With Greenbelt and open spaces surrounding the house, it feels very private.

What makes this house unique

The vaulted ceilings and remodeled kitchen were big benefits. And we love the huge back deck with yard behind. The house is close-in for Tahoe Donner so it is easy to get in and out.

A wonderful choice

  • 5 of 5
We rented several homes in Tahoe Donner for a family reunion and used this home (#447313) as a place for all of us to meet, eat and set out on our adventures. I cannot be more enthusiastic about staying here. We had a wonderful time, and this home had much to do with the success of our reunion. It is perfect.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented vacation homes in Tahoe for years. This year we decided to have our family reunion (ages 12 y.o. to 78 y.o.) in Tahoe, so we needed to find a large enough home to accommodate all 11 of us. I am thankful this path lead us to the Donner Sun and Ski Family Retreat! Honestly, this was the nicest rental home we've ever rented. It is clear the owner takes pride in offering a wonderful experience to her guests. The owner has thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay pleasant...from the well stocked kitchen, to the fun game room, to the toiletries she provides in all of the bathrooms...it's all top notch and very much appreciated. I'd highly recommend this beautiful and well kept home for all ages. The owner is also a good communicator which is also appreciated.

Wonderful Tahoe Home for Families!

  • 5 of 5
This is a truly beautiful home with all the special touches you want on a 5 star vacation. The previous reviews talk about all the great things for young children, so I will share our experience with teenage and older children and Grandparents.
The game room is not just stocked with Ping Pong/Pool Table, but Dartboard and a Video Game System (I believe WII) with several good games. There is also Ladderball to play on the quaint back lawn. The extensive trail system in literally out the back door. My kids sat down and studied the trail maps the first hour we there. They went for daily runs. Grandparents went for walks. The Resort passes had my family at the Tennis courts, Bocce Ball Courts and Archery more than once. We really had so much to do, we went home feeling we needed more time to spend at the lakes. We had plans to do Tai Chi, sauna. . . . just couldn't fit it all in.
In addition, the owner was a great communicator before, during and after our trip, and did all she could to make sure we had a fantastic experience.

Suggestion - One reason the house is nice is the "No shoes in the house" rule. There is a great bench in the entry to sit and put shoes on and off. We each found it handy to bring an extra pair of flip flops to leave on the back deck.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5
This house is just great! My family of 12 loved staying here over Memorial Day weekend. I honestly have never seen a more well-equipped rental home especially for a multi-generational family (which included 4 kids under the age of 5). High chair, Pak n play and even kid's plates and utensils were included as well as an amazing double bunk room stocked with great books and toys. All the furniture is beautiful and the deck has a lot of comfy seating. It was spotless when we arrived and provided with truly everything we needed. The well stocked kitchen had tons of cooking utensils and supplies. There honestly is nothing I would've added to make the house more perfect. It's that nice. It's as if the owners never rented this home and kept it in beautiful condition and well supplied just for them. The owners must've been thinking of the home they'd want to live in and passed that caring onto their renters. We've rented homes many times and I can say this is the first time I haven't found something to improve upon in the home. They also supplied passes to the private Tahoe Donner beach property and the pools which our family took advantage of. I'd highly recommend this home!

Wonderful House, Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful cabin for large groups looking to enjoy the Tahoe region. The house has two master suites, and a wonderful bunk room for kids, with lots of great toys. The home is stocked with anything you can imagine, and very well organized. Best of all, the owner is a wonderful person to work with, at one point during our stay we had a problem with the cable, and she responded very quickly to help us resolve it. I can't recommend this cabin highly enough. You will be very happy you booked it.
