Get your ski and snowboard on! Wake up in a beautiful wooded location in fabulous Tahoe Donner, with sunshine streaming through the trees. We have the perfect location about 2/3 mile from the Rec Center yet off the main roads. Serene and peaceful, nearly half acre lot set back from the low-traffic street among the pines. Our street is very quiet and low traffic. The lot backs to a large greenbelt. You are super close to prime Tahoe Donner amenities. Yet you will really feel like you really got away from it all!
We are close to several major resorts for skiing and riding, including Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Sugar Bowl.
Private Hot Tub for 6 right behind the house. Soak under the stars and among the trees!
Gorgeous 4 bedroom home plus loft, 3 bathrooms (two master suites - one with a big jacuzzi tub, the other with a huge marble rain shower). 1 king, 2 queens, 4 twins + 1 sleeper sofa. (Sleeper sofa has seen better days so we recommend taking the new mattress out and putting on the floor for better support :) .
The bedrooms have BLACKOUT SHADES so you can sleep! :) (Over the holidays, guests broke three of our blinds so some may be out for repairs) The downstairs master bedroom has a sleigh bed and queen-sized Memory Foam mattress, which get better reviews than regular mattresses.
Beautifully furnished, fabulous location close to convenience store + Rec Center, where you can use pools, hot tubs, golf course + other Tahoe Donner amenities for a small fee. Spacious great room with wood cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light. We have a beautiful piano, which is conveniently tucked away out of the main thoroughfares in the loft. Awesome wood stove, firewood is available at nearby Z Marketplace, Safeway, or ACE Hardware. Laundry downstairs, tucked under the staircase with easy access to the garage. 2 car garage and huge flat driveway can accommodate many cars.
Two large flat-screen TVs with DVD/Cable. One Smart TV is in the upstairs master bedroom. Non-Smart TV in the great room. High-speed WiFi Internet access.
Enjoy grilling your favorite barbecue foods on our propane gas grill. On the back deck near the hot tub, we offer a wood table with four benches. There are three additional padded outdoor chairs on the front deck.
Important: This is NOT a party house, and we strictly enforce the rental agreement. You may not have more than the reserved number of guests on the property at any time (day or night). There will be an additional fee if you add guests or pets and only with express permission. Tahoe Donner Association forbids loud noise, hot tub usage, or music after 10 pm or before 7 am. This is absolutely a NON-smoking property, no exceptions. Violations of the rental agreement will result in forfeiture of the security deposit and could result in substantial legal liability, so please read it carefully. Sorry - I know 90% of you don't need me to say this.
Check in time is 5 pm. Checkout time is 11 am. During popular seasons, we often have back-to-back rentals, and the cleaners need every minute to get the cabin ready for you. If you want to ensure early check in or late check out, please reserve an extra day on either end of your reservation :)
We supply linens and basic kitchen stuff like pots, pans, dishes, flatware. Guests must bring their own additional supplies as listed in the rental instructions. Please do read the instructions carefully. With 14 years of successful rental experience, we do our best to strike a good balance between keeping fees reasonable and making sure everyone has a great visit to the house. We can customize your stay with added services if you let me know ahead of time.
Nearby attractions include Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, historic downtown Truckee, casinos, Reno, bike paths, hiking trails, x-country skiing, etc. No smoking. We look forward to your visit to our lovely home. :)
We are pet friendly and charge a modest fee to help cover the inevitable extra costs of having pets here. Please inquire. No pets without express permission of owner and payment of pet fee.
I invest a lot of time and money in keeping this house nice. In 2015, we invested $12K in brand new luxury carpet. It feels so good and soft under the feet and freshened up the look of the cabin :) In 2014, we invested a similar amount of money upgrading the back deck to Trex, giving you plenty of space to enjoy the hot tub and the lovely woods behind the house. I am a hands-on and loving owner who spends several months at the property every year deep cleaning, upgrading, repairing, and maintaining. My dad recently spent several weeks heroically clearing the huge lot for defensible space. We so appreciate you treating the house with tender loving care so we can keep it wonderful for everyone who visits.
Must provide photo ID and sign contract and HOA rules before receiving access info; please read our terms carefully. Non-disclosed people or pets are forbidden on the property AT ANY TIME. This provision will be strictly enforced. I apologize to the 90% of you who don't need these rules - we've had too many violations and too much property damage from those who didn't.
Occupancy limits: We can accommodate 12 adults for short-term rentals if you pay the extra guest fees in advance. We can accommodate 16 people for short-term rentals IF at least 4 are children under the age of 7. We can accommodate up to 16 people if you are renting for 31 days or more. Some may be sleeping on the floor so bring pads and linens for extras. Otherwise the limit is 12 under HOA rules and you are liable for any complaints or penalties for violating this provision. If this is confusing, please ask. Having more people or pets than we agreed and were paid in advance will result in substantial penalties and legal liability so please don't do it. This includes all times of night and day. No, it absolutely is not okay to have more people to dinner or the hot tub. This restriction applies at all times of day and night. Additional unpaid persons may not be on the property at any time. No parking anywhere other than our driveway. Please see our contract.
ALL people and pets count, so include all in your reservation. This includes infants and children and anyone who will be on the property even for a short time during the day.
Laundry and garbage disposal fees have been added because guests consistently did not follow the contract instructions. Laundry fee is refundable if you leave no more than one small load of laundry for the cleaners to do onsite. Our costs are very high when people do not follow our rules.
