House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We reside in the SF Bay Area (Sonoma County). Mark is in the local wine business and Kathie works for a large Biotech firm. We've owned and enjoyed our Tahoe Donner property for several years and have successfully rented it over this time as well. We made a decision some time ago that we don't expect rental income to cover the costs and therefore don't keep it rented all the time. We'd prefer to keep wear and tear to a minimum and therefore tend to shy away from very large groups, last minute discounts, etc. We always check to ensure our rates remain reasonable and amenities are competitive.
Owner purchased this House in 2000
Why Owner chose Truckee
We had stayed in various rentals around Tahoe Donner for many years. We love the area and wanted a home that would provide family time and memories. A place that was enjoyable in winter AND summer. We wanted a home that was clean, comfortable, and not full of second hand furnishings. Lots of snow (house is at 6700' elevation), but without the wind of the homes on the hills or steep, winding, icy driveways. Not only has this house has fit the bill for us in the above ways, we love the layout. Nice sized bedrooms, open kitchen to the large dining table, easy garage access, great covered deck off the back to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. An additional bonus is the Tahoe Donner location. Close to Truckee, Lake Tahoe and the big resorts, yet located off the 1st exit coming into Truckee. Saves us 30 minutes both in and out (and that's without weekend traffic!!) On a Friday night or Sunday afternoon this is a non-trivial benefit..
What makes this House unique
We have several favorite Tahoe Donner amenities. During the winter, the local ski and sled hills are fun and convenient. In the summer, we enjoy walking and hiking the awesome trials, going to both pools, boating on Donner Lake at Tahoe Donner's private beach and Marina. While not golfers, this is one reason many owners buy and live here. Having a local Bar and Grill and a pizzaria is terrific as well. We often go into Truckee for shopping and restaurants (favorite Mexican restaurant in N Cal is El Toro Bravo), drive around Lake Tahoe, or ski Northstar, Squaw or Sugar Bowl.

Great Truckee stay
Wonderful location. Our family felt at home and we appreciated the ease of check-in! Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
Excellent for families
Well equipped house with lots of kitchen equipment if you want to cook. Pak and Play for the baby to sleep in as well as room for 4 kids in the third bedroom. Also a high chair. Lots of space in the living room and in the backyard for snow play or play in the summer. We enjoyed our visit a lot.
Charming, comfortable cabin in good location
The layout and size of the cabin was great for our family (4 adults and 3 kids under 10). None of us ever felt like we were on top of each other. There was plenty of sleeping space for everyone. The house was very warm and inviting. We were all very comfortable there during our week there. The owners are very responsive and pleasant. Would stay there again!
Great Family Vacation Home
We enjoyed our stay in the Tahoe-Donner area. The house is conveniently located near the lake, ski resort, trails, and town. It's large, comfortable, spotlessly clean, quiet, and perfect for a family. The kitchen is one of the better-equipped kitchens we have had in a rental home. Kathie was very responsive to our inquiries. We would stay there again if we come back to the area.
Love the Cabin
Loved the property but there were a few small things. We could not work the TV. Needed better instructions. Beds were not very comfortable.
