About Tan Nguyen

It's always our dream to own a vacation home in the Tahoe Truckee area surrounded by beautiful forests and serene lakes in the close vicinity and to share it with you. We've lived in the Bay Area for more than 20 years and always enjoy traveling to Tahoe to ski 15 plus trips a year and vacationing through out the year doing a lot of outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking,hiking and soaking in hot springs.

Tan Nguyen purchased this house in 2012

Why Tan Nguyen chose Truckee

It is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with brand new kitchen, stainless steel appliance for your enjoyment and convenience. It is right across from serene Donner lake with clear water and beautiful weather in the summer, perfect for swimming on a hot day or fishing trips that perhaps you are always want to plan for.

Also perfect location for winter fun, only 10-15 minutes away from most of the major ski resorts, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, and close to two great places for beginner skiers are Donner Ski Ranch and Soda Springs. Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City is about 30 minutes away.

Don't forget about hiking through the trails at Truckee, or biking along the Truckee river---peaceful ride through nature. We discovered Treetop Adventure Park at Granlibakken Conference Center & Lodge, a fun rope course-ziplines place for the whole family, now also at Squaw Valley rope courses.

What makes this house unique

Close to ski resorts, right across the beautiful Donner Lake, easy access to all Lake Tahoe and Reno entertainment.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed at this Donner Lake Home over the new years weekend. We had a great time! The house had plenty of room and all the amenities we needed to cook dinner every night. There is a little market about 20 ft away that made it very convenient if we forgot anything. If you walk half a mile down the road there is a beautiful opening with piers to view the lake. The owners were very helpful and responsive when I had a question. Would highly recommend staying at this rental!! The only part I would like to have known going into it is that the house is directly connected to a smaller home. I may have missed this piece of information but from the pictures and description it looks like you would have the entire home but a quarter of it is for a different owner. Completely separate living spaces but still connected. We had the best time!! Sad there wasn't much snow but hopefully next year!

Donner Haven True to its Name

  • 5 of 5

We went to Donner Haven over Presidents weekend and it is a very nice place to stay. The kitchen is complete as is the rest of the house. It's very clean and easy to access with a flat entry and convenient mudroom to remove your soggy ski stuff. The washer and dryer also work very well. My sister and I are very likely to return.

You walk in feeling very welcome to stay in the house.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very clean. I smelt the towels and linen and it was fresh. We stayed at a condo and the linen and towels smelt dirty and dusty. We brought our own sleeping bags just in case. We used our own stuff but if we didn't have anything I felt at easy to use their linen. Very close to everything.

Awesome Family Birthday Celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed to host my husband's milestone birthday for our entire family. We found it very clean and well stocked with kitchenware, bedding and games. It is well situated along the lake with a small convenience/grocery store nearby. We found the owners extremely polite and helpful in answering all our questions and concerns before and after our stay. Thank you so much!
