About the property

House, 4+ Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Beautiful 4 bedroom 3 ½ bath two story house (2500+ sq ft) with a hot tub. Sleeps 10-12 people, and is perfect for 2 families.

Upscale, luxury house that was recently remodeled with top-of-the-line appliances, a chef's kitchen and brand new furnishings in every room. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your vacation.

The main living area has an open floor plan with pine-wrapped ceilings and a fireplace. The kitchen is completely remodeled with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, new cabinets, and all amenities, including microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, dishwasher, and all cooking items and utensils you will need. The dining room table accommodates 8 people, and there are 4 barstools at the countertop. We have two separate family rooms, one upstairs and the other downstairs, which is perfect for families with kids. The kids bunk room is also a great place for the kids to hang out downstairs.

The 4 bedrooms include: 1 King (with additional sleeping area for 2 kids) in Master Suite; 2 Queen bedrooms; and 1 kids bedroom with 2 bunk beds (4 twin beds), so 10-12 can sleep comfortably. The kids room also has books and games. We supply bed linens, towels and blankets, and have a washer and dryer in the laundry room. We have high-speed Internet, telephone, Apple TV, Xbox Kinect, Wii, and 2 big, flat-screen HDTVs with cable package.

We are located in the Tahoe-Donner community, which has two swimming pool areas, a gym and workout facility, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing. Downtown Truckee is minutes away, and we are 15 to 30 minutes to Squaw, Alpine, Northstar, Sugar Bowl and Borreal ski resorts.

In the summer, you can enjoy the golf course, tennis courts and equestrian center, plus a private beach on Donner Lake.

The house comes with guest passes that allow you to use the amenities for a charge of $8 per person each day. There is a big back yard with a small creek. In the summer, you can relax on one of the two decks surrounded by pines. There are also hundreds of hiking and biking trails just minutes away, and great restaurants.

We are conveniently located at the Donner Pass Road exit off Highway 80 in the Tahoe Donner community. The garage fits 2 cars and several more can park in the flat driveway.

Nightly rate and minimum stay differ depending on time of year. There is a 5-night minimum in the summer unless booked less than 30 days in advance.

average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

Large, well equipped, great floor plan for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin. Took our two young kids for their first snow adventure and stayed with our good friends and their young children. The cabin has a great floor plan for two or three families and is fully equipped to make you feel comfortable and connected. Hot tub and Donner guest passes are pluses. Nest thermostats and Apple TV are nice touches. Great location. Really well maintained. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful and inviting home in a lovely setting...

  • 5 of 5

The home owners have a wonderful home. We came with our extended family and everyone had a room. The back deck is a lovely place to relax. The house has most everything you would need for sleeping (linens), towels, cooking and relaxing. I liked that the home owners were very organized and made all attributes of the home very easy to use: TVs (we did not use, but instructions were very clear), hot tub, games, Tahoe-Donner activities, information on local amenities...thank you for making our stay wonderful and we look forward to coming back. BTW, the mountain biking at Tahoe-Donner is some of the best I have ever ridden.

wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at this home. We stayed for 2 wks: the first with my family of 4 as well as our dog and the 2nd week with extended family members. The house was beautiful, spacious, well stocked and had everything we need for a wonderful and easy vacation. The streets were quiet and great for children to play and/or ride bikes through the neighborhood. We highly recommend this lovely home!

Perfect place to come home to

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending 3 nights at James' house in Tahoe Donner and we couldn't be happier about the accommodations and amenities. It's clearly a place that the owner uses and enjoys because the furnishings, bedding, electronics etc. were all high quality that you would chose for your own place. We were 2 families with 5 kids and a dog, and the layout was plenty spacious. The great room was large and allowed everyone to hang out comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked with enough dishes and glasses to accommodate double the amount guests. The master suite alone could have been it's own separate living space. Plenty of video games, board games, and shuffle board to keep the kids busy and entertained when they were indoors. The pup loved running free in the small forest out back exploring the many trees. James is super responsive and a pleasure to work with if anything comes up. Looking forward to returning again soon.

Great stay - Exactly like pictures

  • 5 of 5

Recently ended my vacation there yesterday after a 2 night stay over the weekend. The pictures were exactly how it looked. The host was extremely accommodating. There was a binder full of all of the information we would have needed for our stay. It was clean, very modern, and I loved the decor. There's 4 rooms, each room having at least one bed. Don't be fooled by items that look like closets, they're actually pull down beds!!! The kitchen was fully stocked including a rice cooker, slow cooker, hot water kettle, etc! I am really amazed at how well-maintained the property was and how well the pictures represented the property.

We skiied one day and chose Sugar Bowl and it was about a 20 minute drive. Close to a market as well, about 10 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a spacious and clean property (I mean, who wouldn't like that). The host also replies very quickly, within a day of e-mail, and picked up the phone right away when there was a minor problem getting into the property.

I will definitely be returning to this property when I have another vacation planned. Thanks James!
