Comment just in:

Hi Pat,

Now that I have finally had a moment to catch my breath, I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful trip we had to Tahoe last week. Your VRBO site certainly doesn't do the house justice and I will be sure to write some positive comments there. Everything was great and it was definitely one of the nicest houses we have stayed in (especially the kitchen).

NEW! TIVO DVR with unlimited Long Distance. NEW 55' LCD in Living room. With all that said, 'Welcome to our home in Tahoe Donner'. This beautiful home has a lot of special features, it was built by the developer to be his own. It is approximately 3500 square feet and has 5 bedrooms with 4.5 bathrooms, sleeps 16 with the sleeper sofa in the living room, and has approximately 1000 square feet of decks with a private hot tub. The Driveway is Level and the entrance into the house has no steps. Our home is within 20 minutes of all of the major ski resorts, including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl & Boreal Ridge. It backs up to an open space meadow with many trails including a trail that is a seven-minute walk to the Trout Creek Recreation Center with swimming pools, hot tubs, hot and dry saunas, a large gym, golf driving range, sledding park, playground, tennis, a New Clubhouse Restaurant, and much more.

It is just five minutes from Highway 80 and 30 minutes from the Reno Airport. Golf is a four-minute drive to either Tahoe Donner Golf Course, or Coyote Moon Golf Course. We have 5 Bdrms 4.5 Bathrooms equaling 4 Masters made up of 2 Kings and 2 Queens. One of the Queen rooms is a walk through to kids attached Bdrm(s)combined with an entertainment room and a Very Fun & Brand New Foosball Table. Ping Pong in the Garage. All bdrms have a flat screen TVs with internet capabilities and most have Blu-ray dvd players.

Handicapped? Because our house has no steps to get in and we have a sleeper sofa on the main floor with a 1/2 bath, there is a possibility for a stay with someone that can't do stairs. However, we are not promoting this house as equipped for a handicapped person. Our floor plan is also not very conducive for wheelchair use. Therefore any consideration of use by a handicapped person would need to be discussed before booking our home.

This is NOT a party house! The amount of people staying at the house should always be the maximum amount of people in the house. No smoking, No Pets, No exceptions. 3 Night Minimum.

Caution! In the Winter time if you cross over the trail behind the house there are icy ponds and streams under the snow. Please watch your children and stay on the trail!

Children are NOT allowed on the deck unattended, they must have an adult with them.

Make it the perfect vacation and consider my other home in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is perfect for a Wine County tour combined with San Francisco VRBO # 827811

About Bill Hamm

When staying in our home we can guarantee that you will have several moments that will create those special memories for your family that will be talked about for years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat & Joe ~



Just wanted to drop a note to you saying we had a WONDERFUL TIME staying in your home. The kids went nuts when they saw the room they were staying in...with the popular air hockey game...and the fact that it was *sans* parents. The named it the *game room*.



We had a great time ...and pretty much right outside the door...which is what we did! We ended up making pretty much a luge (sp???) run down the left side of the house. We left a couple of snow toys there in the garage...an inner tube and a flexible boogie board. Ron, show snow boards, made a trail/track for the boys along side the open meadow area to let them get the hang of it...which we have photos of and will send to you. We had snpowball fights, there is a wonderful snowman built on your deck (your neighbors...quite delightful) really liked it, and the kids...as well as adults...had a blast going down our *luge* run. FYI...the inner tubes work better than the sleds because they bank better.



The bear in the corner was adorable, but I kept thinking it was a kid standing there, so I finally had to turn it around to face the wall! At least that looked more natural!!



We left ice in the freezer, and a few items in the fridge and cupboards.



I'll send you photos as soon as we get them all together. We would love to do this again sometime...and maybe while there is still snow. Do you have any clue when the snow starts to really vanish??



Thank you again for allowing us a wonderful family opportunity. The kids will remember this forever as will the adults. It was more than memorable in SO many ways. As a result of this trip, we all have bonded in a very unique way. OH...and Jack had a very memorable 7th birthday, too!



Thanks again...and I'll be in touch soon. Take care ~



Patti, Bill, Maria, Lis, Ron, Regina, Chris, Cassie, Nikki, Anthony, Davida, Roland, & Birthday Boy Jack...

Wonderful house for a big group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 4 nights in February, shared among 4 families. The house was roomy, and the kids (ages 3-9) loved the bunk bed room and foosball table. The separate dining room, kitchen counter, and raised breakfast table provided plenty of room for everyone to sit, eat and chat. There were tvs in all the rooms, so we could hang out together or enjoy some quiet time in our rooms. The house was clean, updated, and overall, perfect for a big group. The only thing to note is the room leading into the bunk bed room was not usable for us. It might be fine for older kids or as a kid-overflow room, but it did not offer enough privacy for adults because of the traffic in and out of the kids room. Note the house is three-levels so you get a lot of exercise going up and down the stairs!

The owners were friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely rent this house again.

Excellent, comfortable house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house for a big family vacation and it was perfect. It had more than enough rooms / beds to fit out huge (15 person family - including babies). It also had everything you need for the weekend to be comfortable. We were able to play in the snow right outside the property and drive to downtown in less than 15 minutes. The hosts were super exceptional as well - everything had clear instructions written up around it, super easy and friendly to work with.

We will definitely come back here!

Perfect multi-family Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful mountain retreat was perfect for our 3 families (plus one grandparent!) this December. We have rented for over a decade in the Tahoe Donner area, and this was the best house yet. It is perfect for multiple families, as it really "absorbs" many people with its layout. The bedroom spaces spread over 2 floors and include 3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms - so it was perfect for 3 couples. And then 8 kids (!) can sleep in the other 2 rooms, since 3 of the single beds all feature pull-out trundles. From the street level, you walk into the main living floor and there is ample space in the living room to hang out with plenty of light streaming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows, plus a small dining table (great for puzzles), plus at least four chairs along the kitchen counter for breakfast (or sipping wine & watching the cook), PLUS an enclosed dining room so our adult dinners found some quiet. The views were beautiful out the back, looking over a stream and a meadow. We were up there in a storm, but this house is only a few houses off of the major Northwoods road and the plowing stayed current - and their flat driveway made in/out a synch, unlike many other Tahoe Donner houses we have rented. Everything is modern, clean and current. We spent some days playing in the snow right outside our door, one day cross-country skiing and enjoying the brand new Nordic clubhouse in Tahoe Donner, and other days skiing at the nearby resorts. We ended our stay with a moonlight hot tub. We highly recommend this house.

Tahoe Donner Magnificent Home

  • 4 of 5

My Family and I really Enjoyed this Beautiful Home . It was nicely decorated, fully stocked, and conviniently located to shopping center. Nice hiking trails out back.... The only draw back was Mother Nature not providing the snow We had to drive to a resort. Oh yea also no Air Hockey table.

Thank You Bill & Pat!!

Owner's Response: Well we are glad you had a nice time. Sorry about not having an Air Hockey Table, I can understand how disappointed your kids must have been. Unfortunately it took quite a beating with some of the previous tenants and we deemed it a hazard and had to remove it before your arrival. Sorry! Hopefully our new Foosball table will be just as big a hit with the kids.

Awesome multi-family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this house. We had 3 families and this house really is "Magnificent". The large open kitchen made it easy for everyone to pitch in with meal time. The bedrooms and bathrooms gave everyone the space and privacy they desired. Morning coffee on the deck is a must. The location made it easy to walk to both clubhouses and take advantage of all that Tahoe Donner has to offer.

Our experience was top notch!

  • 5 of 5

This Tahoe-Donner home surpassed our expectations. As a family, we travel often and stay at many rentals. Our experience was top notch in many ways. First, the photos on this site don’t do the place justice. When we walked in, we felt so lucky to have scored such a rental. It was obvious to us that the owners put a lot of love in designing and decorating the rental. We loved the fact that the house was well stocked with the comforts we needed for our stay - lots of towels, warm blankets, coffee mugs, games, nice shampoo and ample seating. It was so relaxing to curl up with a magazine and look out at nature through the large windows. The three level design of the house made it ideal for our guests and their kids. Everyone had their own private space and looked forwarded to convening for dinner in the kitchen area. The location is also very nice with quiet neighbors, close proximity to the slopes and stores. I highly recommend this space for families who are looking forward to a cozy and memorable weekend. Thank you to the owners who were so helpful and meticulous about providing all the things we needed during the weekend. If I could give extra stars, I would.
