About Bonnie

My husband and I and our 4 kids absolutely love Tahoe--and since we bought this house in 2013, we have grown to love it even more if that is possible! We are both passionate about nature, and my husband is a ski instructor, so getting as much time on the slopes with our kids has been a big priority for family fun! I love to paddle board and donner lake, 10-15 minute drive from house is such a fabulous place to swim, paddle board, and jet ski. There are places to rent toys right there. Of course Lake Tahoe is a natural wonder and so fun to explore and jump off the giant granite rocks into crystal blue water.

Bonnie purchased this house in 2013

Why Bonnie chose Truckee

This home is our refuge--surrounded by tall pine trees that fill with snow in the winter! We are across the street from the Tahoe Donner golf course and a short walk or drive to the Lodge /clubhouse. We ski at Squaw (20-30 mins)or Northstar (30-40 mins) however, there is a sweet ski mountain right in our neighborhood just a few minutes to get to. Our neighborhood is quiet and our home truly is a get away from it all home. Sit by the fireplace, lots of light come in the windows. Quiet. Convenient. flat, large driveway makes it easy to access and the whole house is one level except for second master bedroom which is upstairs. Clean and neat. fully stocked. We love it.

What makes this house unique

In addition to golf across the street, downhill ski area in neighborhood, there is also a world-class cross-country ski place in Tahoe Donner neighborhood! You can rent all gear and they give you trail maps. I had never done this before going here and trails were groomed and beautiful and nice easy loop to begin on all the way to expert trails. There is also an equestrian center and mountain bike rental at same rental place as cross-country ski area--different activities year round. Donner lake is a bonus (in addition to Lake Tahoe). Mornings are typically calm and I like to paddle board there! glassy and so beautiful. Just 10-15 mins from house. love this place!

There is a world class cross-country ski center here too that turns into horse and mountain bike center when no snow. great trails to explore. Also golf course across street from house and fabulous lodge and dining near.

Wonderful home for family time

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house. The only issues we had was that the internet was weak and spotty and that we were asked to take some of our trash home because there is no trash service. We did take a couple of bags but still left some. Now that we know we will plan to take in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The internet works best in the main back living room and back master bedroom and we will look into getting an extender to reach the other parts of the home. No worries on the trash. I sent you this info ahead but maybe you didn't see it (by text). Anyways thank you for taking your trash and recycles--the cleaners are great and they helped take the remaining trash and recycles after you left. So glad you loved the house! We do too.

Truckee stay

  • 5 of 5

Great big cabin! Went there for a couple days over the weekend and was very pleased with the house. The house was large with some of the most comfortable beds I have stayed in for a vaction trip.

Also the location is great as it is only 5-10 minutes to safeway + other restaurants. Cant wait to come back to this cabin!

Also the host is very quick with responses and made sure everything was great!
