Tahoe Donner Condo

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just spent 5 nights in this wonderful condo in Truckee. It was spotlessly clean and has every possible convenience one could imagine. The host provided information for any question a traveler could have from places to eat, to thorough information about activities in the area. All the information was extremely well organized.

I would highly recommend this condo!!!!

This property would not be good for someone who is mobility impaired.

Relaxing getaway that's close to North Lake, Donner, and Squaw

  • 4 of 5

The property was in great condition and very easy to get to. For winter ski/snowboarding trips, its awesome considering you are right at Tahoe Donner Ski Bowl. Everything was as expected in the pictures and descriptions provided. You can quickly get to Donner State Park, Squaw Valley, Downtown Truckee, and North Lake within 30 minutes or less which was great.

The only small downside was the neighbor above was celebrating pretty hard with the Warrior's Game 6 win, which is fine in my book since we too were watching the game, but it did seem that you could hear the neighbors above you if say a child was running across the wood floors above.

All in all, it was a very pleasant experience and for the price, I would definitely consider coming back another time. Trudy is also very good with communications and getting all the necessaries taken care of quickly and promptly. Thanks again Trudy!!

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Place is as described. Comfortable and right on the slopes. During ski season, be advised that you might hear equipment in the middle of the night. Trudy was easy to work with. Definitely would return!

Great Place and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great stay at Trudy's condo. We found the layout of the condo to be perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. (Ages 6 and 7). The futons the kids slept on in the living room were comfortable as was our bed upstairs in the bedroom. The heater and wood burning fireplace/stove kept us all warm. The condo was fairly well stocked and we appreciated having a washer and dryer in the condo. The association dug us out, well the walkways to the condo, after receiving about 3 feet of fresh snow the first day we were there. You will have to dig your own vehicle out, so be prepared to shovel if there is a good amount of snow as there is no covered parking.(Check with Trudy, there is a garage but I am not sure if its an option to park your vehicle in. Our full size truck would not have fit).

The best part of Trudy's condo is the proximity to Tahoe Donner Ski Resort. You are steps away and with two younger kids, we truly appreciated not having to get in our vehicle and drive somewhere. (Although there are several ski resort options nearby to drive too). Tahoe Donner was an excellent place to snowboard for the beginner/intermediate person. It is very family friendly and the lift tickets and rentals are very affordable. I highly recommend this ski resort for lessons and for families.

As part of your stay in Trudy's condo you have free access to a community room with a hot tub and sauna a short walk away. We found the hot tub to be an added bonus after a day on the slopes. There is also a pool table, ping pong table, as well as games and a TV with movie options. In the summer there is an outdoor pool. For a small fee you can go further down the road, a 5 minute drive to access more amenities like a heated outdoor pool and hot tub and a sledding area. There is also a restaurant and market place, although we preferred to drive about 5 minutes more down the hill into the town of Truckee for more options. (Safeway and Burger Me restaurant).

We will defiantly return next winter. I imagine the summer time is lovely as well as there are many outdoor options like hiking, swimming, golfing, fishing, etc. For us, we prefer the winter season here as it meets our needs. But Trudy's condo is a great option for summer too.

The only limitations of this condo would be - not ideal without a car, there are no pets allowed and persons with physical disabilities might find the stairs outside and within the condo challenging.

Great Place and good location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 10 days and had a great time.... the cabin is very comfortable and inviting and an easy 20 minute drive to Northstar and close to great restaurants in Truckee... Trudy is a delight to work with. This is our second time staying and plan to come back again.

Truckee condo

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a few night and it's a great little condo. Very clean and very nicely kept condo. The washer/dryer unit in the condo is a great perk for those staying here while playing in the nearby mountains. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
