Love This Place!

  • 5 of 5
Ours was a Summer vacation. This is a beautiful home with modern amenities, warm, homey touches and lots of space. We had a family reunion there with multiple families and children from 2 yrs to 12 yrs. We found space enough for sleeping, playing, and eating together as well as places for folks to find a moment alone. The balconies/decks and views are amazing. The house is close to all activities, hiking, biking, Donner Lake, Lake Tahoe, fishing, boating, river rafting, ropes course, water sports, and much more. We will definitely go again! Families with very small children should be mindful to keep an eye on the little ones as the balconies/decks are very high and children should not be left unattended - but then, I hope we can assume that if you have little ones, you don't ever leave them unattended anywhere. The owners are lovely to work with and very accommodating. Altogether a great trip and great experience. We cooked in the kitchen, and used the hot tub. The house has laundry facilities, many small kitchen appliances, plenty of towels, sheets, blankets and pillows. With garage access, we even had plenty of room to park multiple vehicles off the street.

Amazing house for our family's annual vacation!

Amazing house for our family's annual vacation!
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for our annual family vacation. All were adults but we did have some cousins who came to visit during the day and they had small children with them; the house had a whole closet full of toys for the kids to play with!
The pictures do not give justice to how beautiful the house is. The house was very clean and well-maintained. Very spacious, 4 stories! We really enjoyed playing on the Ping pong table downstairs in the recreation room. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need to cook and clean. All the bathrooms were very clean and had extra towels; and extra toilet tissue just in case you ran out. The patio upstairs was a great place to hang out to watch the sunset and BBQ on their amazing grill. The house also has Apple TV! This was great because we were all able to share our videos and pictures that we took during the weekend on the huge TV in the family room. The wifi was also very strong, everyone was connected to the wifi and no one experienced any lag time.
The house is only about a 5-10 minute drive from Donner Lake, where we spent most of our day on Saturday. Great place to bring your family to hang out. The water was very crisp and clean and the beach and play area were very well maintained. If you like to fish; on the way to the lake there were a few public docks where you can set up and fish from.
There's a Safeway only 5 minutes from the house which made getting groceries easy. I've stayed at cabins in the past that were really far from a grocery store, which was somewhat an inconvenience.
I would recommend this house to all of my family and friends. Again, a beautiful home!

Wonderful Guys Weekend in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
Wow! I spent five days at this cabin with a group of 10 old college buddies from all over the Southeast, and let me tell you, the complaints were few and far between! The cabin is FULLY loaded with updated amenities and appliances. The hot tub was great after a long day of skiing, and the pool table kept us entertained at night. Did I mention it's 20 minutes from Squaw, Sugarbowl, and a handful of other world-class mountains. As the organizer of a large group trip, you always worry about everyone being comfortable and pleased with the arrangements. I have organized a few trips like this, and this was the first one where literally everyone was happy and thanked me for finding such an amazing place. Do yourself a favor and make this YOUR home for an unforgettable weekend! Many thanks to Antonia for making booking such a breeze!

Great space and location!

  • 5 of 5
I organized a Tahoe weekend for 13 adults and this house was perfect in every way. We were able to spread out comfortably through this house by making use of the 2 sofabeds. The gas fire-stove was the best I've come across and the kitchen has ample plates/cups, etc, which is sometimes a problem in other houses I've rented. The garage was huge and easily able to fit the two cars...again not a "given" in other Tahoe places I've stayed. We made ample use of the hot tub, raided their DVD collection and cooked up a storm. Location was super easy access to all things Truckee/North Lake Tahoe. My travelmates were seriously happy with this place which is music to the ears of a trip organizer!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic time! We had 9 adults comfortably sleeping across 4 bedrooms. Open kitchen / living / dining room on the first floor was perfect for dinner, games, and football watching. ~15 minutes from Squaw/Alpine and an easy drive to adorable downtown Truckee. Would absolutely stay here again!

40th Birthday Celebration!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this wonderful home for five nights while celebrating my wife's 40th birthday. The house is exactly as described in the reviews and pictures. It was large, yet had a wonderful, ski-cabin like feel. We had six adults and three children and had plenty of room. There are decks on every level to take in the beautiful views of the mountains. There wasn't a lot of snow the weekend we were there, so we kept ourselves busy playing pool, ping-pong, Wii, and relaxing in the hot tub. The home is close to everything - the freeway, Safeway, downtown Truckee, and numerous resorts. Antonia is also very easy to work with and obviously takes great pride in the property. It had everything we were looking for to celebrate my wife's birthday, and we would definitely visit again.
