Great Spot for Multiple Families

  • 5 of 5

Great house for our needs, we had 4 families and lots of teenagers. The teens could play video games, pool, basketball or ping pong. The living room was spacious and great to hang out and relax, the kitchen was well stocked. The 5th bedroom/loft is great for teenagers/lots of beds/cozy. The place was near the everything we needed, grocery store, downtown Truckee and Donner lake. Great spot!

This is a beautiful 3-level house with very tasteful decor. It comfortably slept 14 of us with room left over. The teens in our group loved the bottom level with the pool table as they had someplace to hang out -- there were times I actually forgot they were there. It snowed one of the afternoons we were there and the huge windows gave us quite the view, just gorgeous. The kitchen and eating area are roomy, the bedrooms and beds cozy and comfortable, the bathrooms were all clean and everything was well stocked. There are even games and books if you get bored. Because of the weather we could not make use of the decks or BBQ. The parking situation is very good -- we fit 2 cars in the garage and the rest in the driveway with plenty of room left over. Everyone who entered the house was blown away by it and every one of them asked me how I found it and asked for the link to the house. The owner is friendly and easy to work with and is a good communicator (our communication was all via email). Everything was explained clearly. If we ever have need of a house this big in the Tahoe-Donner area again this will absolutely be the first place we will check for availability.

Great home for big families!

  • 5 of 5

The home was nice and spacious with lots of sleeping areas! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for the weekend! It was great for the kids who were ages 1 yr to 5 yrs. Since there was so much snow we were even able to sled down the driveway! Lots of space for parking too. We'll definitely saty here again!
