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

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.

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.

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.

SUMMER STAY

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious house with plenty of room inside and out to have a large group of people gather(kitchen/family room, deck) or doing their own thing(game/media room, office). We had two families with kids ages 6-14 and all of us enjoyed the house. There is a trailhead adjoining the property to explore the open space and it was an easy in/out to get to Tahoe Donner activities or beyond. Would definitely rent again.

AWESOME PLACE - GREAT FOR GROUPS OR VERY LARGE FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this house twice and loved it both times. The place is amazing and has everything we need. Both times we stayed it was four families with 8 small children between all of us. The kids loved all of the toys, the bunk bed room and the backyard. The adults loved all the great amenities like the various gadgets and the ping pong / pool table. In the summer the various decks and deck chairs are great for lounging on. All of the rooms and beds are very comfortable.

GREAT GROUP VACATION RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This house was so wonderful, especially if you have kids. Everything was very well appointed and furnished, and we were especially impressed by how well the kitchen was stocked with utensils and diningware for both the kids and adults. It was very clean and the towels were abundant and very soft. We had several gourmet meals there, and we didn't lack for any utensils to help prepare the meals. The game room was so great for the kids and there were toys for both younger and older kids. Great location and what a lovely place! Thank you so much to the owners! We would love to return!

LARA'S HOUSE

We go to Lake Tahoe every President's weekend and by far this has been the best house we rented. The house felt like home. Lara provided everything you can think of, even a working printer in the study! I love how all the cabinets in the kitchen are labeled and organized. It gave me some ideas of what to do with my own kitchen at home! The kids enjoyed the media and playroom downstairs. The house was big enough where everyone can have their own space if needed. I will definitely stay at the house again in the future!
