Why Donald Perettie chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We purchased in Tahoe Donner because of all the amenities the community has to offer. No matter the season there is always something to do for both adults and children.

We purchased this home in particular because of the space and layout. It offers a large amount of living space and a layout that suits either one or more families. We love to entertain with families and this home works perfectly.

What makes this house unique

This home was designed to work for both kids and adults. It is perfect for multiple family rentals given the amount of sleeping space and layout. For the kids there is a game room with Wii, Xbox, video games, train table, dvd...(it can also sleep up to 8 kids (4 in beds and 4 on mattresses on the floor). For adults there is a gourmet kitchen and an outdoor seating area with amazing views of the Sierras. Additionally there is also 2 indoor jazuzzi tubs and a outdoor hot tub. Perfect for after skiing relaxation either indoors or outdoors. It is also located on a triple lot so the privacy is unmatched for Tahoe Donner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous home we all had such a great time and loved the private beach and the proximity of so many activities.

We did get the garbage in the bear box fortunately, my relatives from Washington have a cabin in the woods and understood what to do. We did see cub bears in the back yard and mama bear out front pretty amazing sight.

Thank you again

Great space for large crowds

  • 4 of 5

Great space for a large family gathering. The kids had a blast with all the toys and games available. The kitchen was well equipped also. Thankfully it is far enough away from the lake that mosquitoes weren't a problem, because we visited in July and it was hot and there is no AC but we were able to open the windows and doors (none of which had screens). The owner was responsive to our inquiries. Overall a lovely experience.

Great Vacation Home for Large Families

  • 5 of 5

We have a rather large family of 8 adults and 6 children. It has been our pleasure for 3 years to gather at the Perettie house since one of our children have moved out of state. We all felt that it was the most comfortable, safe and inviting vacation home a family could want. It is so well stocked that we hardly needed to bring anything extra, although we never found a pot that would fit one of the vegetable steamers. The children ages 2 mo. to 8 years old were well entertained with toys and DVD's in the house. There are so many nice conveniences that make life so enjoyable that it makes us want to come back again. The only draw back is having to pay to go into the pool area. Despite that my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed going to a Zumba class at the Trout Creek Center. Best teacher my daugheter and I've ever had!

The snow scenery was breathtaking through all the windows. ..had a bad storm that weekend but it made it even more memorable...after speaking with the owner we were scooped out in no time!

This place is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Donald's home was nothing short of magical. The photos do not do this place justice. Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving here. The place was spacious enough to give everyone plenty of retreat spots, but a great family/dining/kitchen where everyone could gather comfortably. The home has a comfy, lived-in air with lots of amenities. I had no trouble making a full Thanksgiving dinner in this wonderfully equipped kitchen.

Donald was an excellent host, responding to any question we had within minutes.

Our family unanimously agreed that we wanted to return sometime! Thanks for a great stay!!!!

Wonderful weekend in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What can I say.....this place is absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect house for a multi-family vacation with a great set up in terms of space and privacy. The kitchen is well stocked and has about everything you would need to prepare any meal. There is a large dining table with enough space for the entire family. Having a large open communal area made it comfortable for our entire group to watch TV. AppleTV was a bonus with Netflix, Hulu and other streaming programs available. We had a wonderful stay and the location of this Home is perfect for all sorts of activities including hiking, biking, boating or just chilling. We would highly recommend this home for your next stay in the Tahoe area

The home is in a association that subsidizes a ski hill, cross country skiing course, golf course, tennis court, swimming pool, lap pool, health club, sled hill, equestrian area and beach. It is located in the Sierra Mountains which provide beautiful views of Mountain terrain and numerous hiking trails. The area is extremely child friendly given all the families that come up for the outdoor activities of Lake Tahoe. We are minutes away from the amenities of historic Truckee which offers shopping, dining and some nightlife. Access is easy from Reno Airport.
