About Tim

We bought the Townhouse in the fall of 2006. It has been a great place to escape to at any time of year. Having primarily been a winter activities couple up in Tahoe, we both discovered the true meaning when locals say 'we came for the winter and stayed for the summer'. We find ourselves up here in the summer as much as the winter. We now have twin boys and have discovered how perfect this house and the area is for families.

We are both middle school teachers and live most of the time in the bay area. We enjoy traveling when we can and always like to return to Tahoe Donner.

Tim purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Tim chose Truckee

I grew up learning how to ski at Tahoe Donner in the mid '70's. The memories of this time always bring a smile to my face and have helped form my love for this area. It is an experience we love to share with our family, friends and guests who stay here.

What makes this townhome unique

The close proximity to all the fantastic amenities while keeping a secluded feel is great. Being just across from Trout Creek Rec. center, Snow Play and the golf course is a real bonus. The townhouse is located away from the road and is an end unit with only one common wall. No one above or below. The nature trail just across the street is a great way to start the morning with a short hike or jog.

Great clean lovely townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place ! We are New Yorkers and have high expectations. We would recommend this home to all our family and friends . It was clean, comfy and decorated like a home away from home. The house was close to 7/11 for coffee runs and the gym across the street had everything. We slept great and was able to enjoy the deck and the owner gave us easy directions to enter because we arrived in the middle of the night. My family and I will return and we were highly satisfied!!

Clean and cozy property. It fit all of our exact needs. Would definitely recommend to others.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home in Truckee. It was very easy to find with plenty of parking out front.

The property itself was clean when we got inside and the instructions for turning on the heat and water were very clear. Overall a great experience staying here with no problems whatsoever.

Everything we needed (but a cookie sheet)

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent townhome-style unit. Downstairs bedroom for the kids allowed them to make noise and watch TV while we slept soundly upstairs. So close to rec center which turned out to be wonderful on a cold evening, with night-time swimming and hot tubs ($12/person if not with the member themselves which we, of course, were not, but well worth it). The kitchen is extremely well equipped, essentially like home. (The only tiny thing we had to cover for was lack of a cookie sheet). We typically rent larger homes, but this place worked great.

Cozy, nicely maintained, feels like home

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, very functional and cozy, you can find everything you need, just like home. Although it's rental house, the things inside are not cheap, towels are soft and sofa is comfortable. Tim is also very responsive and considerate, the kids loved playing with the toys and the games, my daughter was even sad that she couldn't finish one of books in the house before we left. It's also very convenient location, there were not enough snow for the snow play area right across the street, but I think we will stay here again when there is more snow.

Perfect for a relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 daughters (11 & 13), my husband and I had a great time staying here over the Thanksgiving holiday! One of our daughters was sick and we mostly just lazed around all weekend. We did venture out on a short hike at one point and the trails were very easily accessible. Everything was great in the condo and the check-in and check-out instructions were very easy to follow. We especially enjoyed all the board games! We highly recommend this spot!

Pleasant Summer Stay in Tahoe Donner

  • 4 of 5

I was pleasantly pleased with this condo as we felt like we were staying at a friend's home than a sterile rental. There are two levels. When you walk into the condo, you are greeted by a bed/bath (single over double bunk bed and a child's bed), the laundry area, garage entrance, and a stairway. Upstairs there is another bed/bath with a queen, the living area, and kitchen. The condo is extremely comfortable, with a nice size living area, and conveniently located across from the Trout Recreation Center, where there is a pool, playground, and cafe. Access is $8/pp with the guest pass. Across the street is also the start of the circular Trout Creek nature trail, which is a really enjoyable walk (even with my 5-year-old in tow). I think it was approximately 2 miles. With the guest passes you also have access to the private lake area for $6/pp, where there are lounge chairs and rentals (kayaks, SUP, etc). Parking is limited and it gets really crowded, so arrive early or late if it's a busy time. There is a cafe on site as well, but items run out by the end of the day.

Some things to note:

- There are tons of games, puzzles and a toy bin, that my 5-year-old loved.

- The kitchen has everything you need, but I did recommend a coffee maker upgrade.

- The upstairs bed is extremely comfortable, but the lower bunk bed is extremely uncomfortable ( I recommended replacing) and the linens could use a refreshing.

- I do think the unit could use more bath towels and have extra linens more conveniently placed. You will find extra items in the closets, but it is not well organized.

- There is no A/C, but despite being a really hot weekend, the condo stayed cool.

- Bring a flashlight (as recommended) if you come at night. The place can be a bit daunting to find as there are rows of condos off Northwoods. Just take your time on your way up. It is located after the big Tahoe Donner sign, but just before the recreation center.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it or stay again. It was definitely one of the better places we have found using VRBO in our price range.
