I try hard to give you the absolute best all around deal.

About Tor McLean

I have owned and operated a 3 bedroom/2 bath house since 2002. It too is located in Tahoe Donner VRBO#25245.

I try very hard to give my quests the best value and it shows because web are booked.

We enjoy the Northshore Tahoe beauty with excellent skiing and Donner Lake, casino's close by among many other activities available in the surrounding area. It is a wonderful place to bring family & friends. We can accommodate family reunions, retreats, company getaways.

Tor McLean purchased this house in 2009

Why Tor McLean chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We chose Tahoe Donner Resort in Truckee because of it's absolute pristine beauty. A strong homeowners association sees that things in the neighborhood are always kept up to par. The amount of amenities are numerous and you must check them out on the webat: The location is so close to so many activities in and around the North Tahoe Nat'l Forest region. A 2.5 hour drive from SF Bay Area makes it quick and easy vacation get away.

What makes this house unique

10 beds (sleeps 20 adults) with 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths plus a second house a mile away, so for those large groups over 30 can rent both houses. Medium size groups can rent this one with 6 bedrooms and smaller groups can rent our other 3 bedroom house. Between both houses we can accomidate any size group up to 40 people. Pets welcome.

Great for large groups with children

  • 4 of 5

Our large party of adults and children was well accommodated in the house. The kitchen was well equipped and it was a great space for a large group.

I appreciated the transparency going into the rental that the house was well used. I may have been disappointed in the state of the house had this not been the case.

Overall I consider this rental a good value for the area.

Great place for multi family weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 22 (five families with lots of kids) booked this property based on needing to find a home that could accommodate several families in one place for a soccer weekend. Large kitchen/dining table area that allows for 12-14 to sit and dine together with an outdoor patio to accommodate the entire group. Kitchen was stocked with all necessities, plates/silverware, etc. you might need. Lots of queen size bunk beds (which the kids LOVED!), and plenty bathrooms to accommodate our large group. There are three (non-bunk) queen rooms for adults wanting own space. We brought our own linens/towels and which was easy enough, with less work at end when tidying up cabin. Owner was responsive when we called with questions and also followed up during our stay to make sure we didn't have any additional questions. I would definitely recommend it for any large party that is looking to stay in Truckee and will treat this home like their own.

Annual Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year staying at the Davos Cabin. Our family of 30 have a reunion here since 2012. It is very clean and has plenty of room for all of us. We love the kitchen and huge dining area where we can enjoy home cooked meals and good company. It is fully equipped with everything we need to make 3 meals a day for 30 people. There are games for the kids to play with in the latge family room. The owner is very Responsive, We recommend Renting boats and tubing at Donner Lake Marina, a few miles away form the cabin. We highly recommend this cabin. We will be back again next year, it's something that all the kids anticipate every year to have bonding time with the cousins.

Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Ojai womens group decided our monthly meeting would be somewhere cool. We were so happy to be up in the mountains, the wood decks,surrounding pines, vistas of green mountains totally renewed us. It housed us all very well (all 26 of us) and we had a great time cooking together in the well stocked kitchen. The house had such a warm feeling and the amenities made it all work smoothly. We decided we would come back again next year when the heat started getting to us here.

Very comfortable home for large family

  • 4 of 5

We held our annual family reunion at Tor's house. We usually have from 20-30 people attend and it's difficult finding a house that is large enough. Tor's house accommodated 30 of us well. (Three floors, enough bedrooms and bathrooms.) We especially liked the really long dining room table that opened out to a spacious porch. It was nice to be able to save a little money by bringing our own bedding and towels. The kitchen was well stocked and Tor was clear in his expectations. The house was close to Donner Lake and a recreation area, so there was plenty to do.

This is the perfect "Get-away" home in Truckee - Tahoe Donner for golf and flyfishing!

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot for business on the west coast. I like the town of Truckee and decided to take a vacation with my work 6 work buddies this summer. If you don't know a lot about this area let me share with you why it's such a great part of the country. The Reno airport is only about a 35 minute drive to Truckee, CA. Lake Tahoe is the most scenic lake in America and only about 10 miles away. Add in some of the finest golf resorts in NCal and you have the recipe for a great place to vacation. Oh and one more thing, some of the best flyfishing in the state is the Truckee River that runs right through this great little town. We selected this property for our buddy vacation and everyone loved it! The house is huge with plenty of room both indoor and outdoor. It was very clean, comfortable & quiet with plenty of pines and fresh air. We all liked the place so much we are ready to book again for next year!
