About Michael Grodin
We live in Silicon Valley, miles from fresh air, towering trees, and elbow room. For over 20 years, our family and extended family have made Truckee and the surrounding area our destination for our annual family vacations. We’ve rented in South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Truckee, Squaw Valley, Tahoe Donner, Donner Lake, Kings Beach, Incline Village, and yes even Reno. Each area brought unique experiences, but the common thread through all those rentals was that it was a vacation with the family.
Michael Grodin purchased this House in 2008
Why Michael Grodin chose Truckee
Tahoe Donner has something for everyone, of every age, for every single day of the year. “There’s nothing to do” is never heard when you vacation in Tahoe Donner.

Not we expected
House was not well insulated. Could hear everything from upstairs. Beds are uncomfortable. Just was not impressed at all.
We appreciate the feedback that will allow us to improve. Thank you.
Regarding the insulation and hearing noises from upstairs-when we purchased the home it had very thick padded wall to wall carpet. That carpet did an excellent job muffling noises between the floors. The carpet also did an excellent job attracting every dust and pollen particle in the forest. Unfortunately, no matter how many times a carpet is vacuumed, it remains filled with allergens. Our family has allergies and we made the choice to remove the carpet to reduce allergens. That is also why we do not allow pets or smoking. It was a trade-off that we hope others will appreciate.
As for the uncomfortable beds, this is the first we have heard of this issue. We will examine the beds closely for repair or replacement.
Great place for our family!
We were a group of seven and were quite comfortable at this house! The owner clearly takes pride in his house. Nicely appointed and well stocked!
Loved it! Super Clean, lots of amenities
This is a very charming home. Spacious for the size, super clean and well-organized! My family enjoyed the peace and quiet of Truckee and all the amenities of Tahoe Donner. Easily accessible, about 7 minutes from downtown Truckee. The owner was very accommodating to our needs. We are definitely coming back to this great find!
nice cozy cabin
the cabin is very cute, nice and cozy. 3 bedrooms are prefect for my family. all the kids
enjoyed playing the board games in the loft. we had a wonderful christmas break there. thanks!
Thank you for the kind words. Please come visit again.
We ended up being there during a very stormy weekend and felt the place was well suited for all kinds of weather. I especially appreciated the covered walkway from the front door to the garage. It made unloading and loading much more managable in the snow/rain. The hot tub was a definite bonus as well! We will be back!
Located on Tyrol Road near Glacer View Drive.
Other Activities: Golf and Tennis Lessons, private beach and marina
Golf: Tahoe Donner offers 18-holes of championship golf only minutes from the front door. Driving range, pro shop, lessons, and rentals are available. Several other courses are located within a 30 minute drive.
Ski: Just up the street you will find cross country and downhill skiing. There is also a snow play area that includes the equipment and fun. The area to the right of our house is flat, and with a little effort, you can make your own sled runs.
