Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-14)

Tahoe Donner is more fun and relaxing than Lake Tahoe! All the recreation without the traffic. Enjoy a well-deserved week (or weekend) in our luxurious, quiet home.

Midweek specials available except holiday weeks and ski week. Contact us to learn more.

Tahoe Donner is a gem tucked away in the mountains. And this house has Sierra elegance with a warm, intimate feel. Our luxuriously appointed home sits right on a golf course in Tahoe-Donner, at the sixth hole. During the winter, the green turns into a beautiful snow field perfect for snowshoeing, sledding and snowplay. You don't have to drive to have fun or worry about cars--there's a vast play area right outside the back door.

In the summer, you're a bike ride away from the Rec Center, or a quick drive to Donner Lake for kayaking, swimming or hanging out with the kids. We also like Squaw and Tahoe for the tram, hiking, and Treetop Adventure Park.

For skiers downhill and Nordic, you'll find major resorts and ski parks a short drive away. Tahoe Donner resort is two minutes away; Squaw Valley and Northstar a half hour each. Tahoe Donner is excellent for families and new skiers. Super-easy, economical, friendly, no hassles.

Our house has received high compliments for its elegant mountain decor and cozy feel, with a floor plan makes sense. All the living areas are on one floor in a semi-open plan. The kitchen opens to the living and dining areas, and features a spacious bar area for socializing. The TV room is on the ground floor in a separate room. We find that the flow of the house means that groups have some privacy to read, play games, cook, and watch TV, and yet everyone's together. Renters have remarked on how gorgeous it is. Most bedrooms are upstairs -- but a main floor suite, no stairs, is a nice option.

The rear deck is flooded with Southern sun, and has a nice treesy view of the golf course/snowy meadow.

Luxurious features include a beautifully appointed, granite kitchen, high-thread-count linens, down pillows, Jacuzzi bathtubs, high-end furniture and more.

The home is a 2-3-minute drive to two private country clubs with pools, hot tub, sauna, tennis courts, work-out facilities, beach and marina access at Lake Donner and golf. Also, a few blocks from the private equestrian center and ski resort for children. Guest cards are provided as part of the home rental to use these private facilities. ( season specific)

The house is approximately 2600 square feet on two levels with 4 bedrooms. King-size beds are in each of the two luxurious master suites with Jacuzzi tubs, and in another large, sunny bedroom. First floor Master allows single level living. Second floor master suite features a 37' flat-screen TV. These stately bedrooms are quite private, with south-facing golf-course views, as well as the forest. Upstairs you’ll find an additional large bedroom with 1 single twin and a twin bunk bed plus plenty of floor space to play. With a total of 3 king beds and 3 twins, this house sleeps 9 comfortably.

The beautifully decorated living room with high slanted ceiling is grand yet comfortable, with a cozy gas-log fireplace, elegant furnishings and bright views, and is adjacent to a dining area that easily seats 8. Dining area opens to the deck overlooing the golf course.

The fully equipped, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances features a bar area that makes for stylish entertaining. Catch a movie in the adjacent semi-private TV and game room, with Cable TV, DVD, and a small children’s gaming table with billiards, hockey and more.

Off the kitchen there is a separate laundry room adn second 'mud 'room. A powder room on the ground floor keeps traffic out of the bedrooms.

Our home is well equipped with board games for the whole family, as well as a miniature pool table and some trains for the children.

High-tech Specifications:

Wireless Internet makes it possible to telecommute

Harmon-Kardon speakers with USB plug for iPods or laptops with USB port. Please note that this is the ONLY stereo system in the house.

During the summer, you'll find the private Tahoe-Donner beach is a 10-minute drive away, and features canoe, paddle boat and kayak rental. Excellent hiking/biking nearby. Guest access to the pool and rec center, equestrian center and tennis courts, which are all a 3-minute drive from the house. Also enjoy rafting the Truckee River or Lake Tahoe, which are both about 20 minutes away.

Parking is available for up to 5 cars: 2-car garage (for two mid-sized vehicles); ample driveway features a separate space for an additional car.

No pets please.

About Tahoe-Donner:

Tahoe Donner is near Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake, and is just a few miles from historic downtown Truckee. Tahoe Donner includes access to the Trout Creek Recreation Center, Tennis Center, Northwoods pool, sauna, steam room, & health club, and a private beach on Donner Lake that rents paddle boats, canoes, kayaks and more.

There is a championship 18-hole golf course in the Tahoe Donner Association, an equestrian center, and many miles of scenic hiking and biking trails. Two guest passes for 4 guests each are provided at the house. Tahoe-Donner charges a small fee charged for each amenity, when you go.

Most activities we checked on the VRBO checklist are 5-10 minutes away. The rest are no more than 30 minutes away. Call for details.

If you want to try your hand at blackjack, Crystal Bay Nevada is about 15 miles away on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, and Reno is about 40 miles away on I-80 east.??

About Marianna

We bought the home for our family to spend time together. This is not a beat-up rental, but a beautiful home that reflects our mother's elegant taste and big heart. We are looking for renters who appreciate and love their home just the same.

Marianna purchased this house in 2005

Why Marianna chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Because Tahoe Donner is awesome! We started avoiding Lake Tahoe because of traffic. We have fuller days in Tahoe Donner because swimming, skiiing, biking are all more convenient.

What makes this house unique

We particularly love the kitchen area, which is so well suited for family entertaining. There is a bar area with barstools, making it easy to cook and socialize at the same time.

Gorgeous Tahoe Donner Home on Golf Course! Great ski getaway for the family!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Wonderful Warm and Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there during a few days before Christmas and had a very wonderful experience there. The cabin faces the golf course so you get a true white Christmas experience! Also very close to ski resorts, only a min or 2 to Tahoe Donner ski resort and 15 min to Boreal. There is also a small slope for kids sled just a few houses up on the golf course. Lots to do and if you just want to relax in the cabin and have hot chocolate that's nice too!
