House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
- english, french, german
We are outdoor enthusiasts from the SF Bay Area who love all that the mountains and lakes have to offer - both in summer and winter. We are avid skiers and wanted to share this sport with our children. Our families bought this home together when our kids were just babies.
Jennifer purchased this House in 2003
Why Jennifer chose Truckee
We wanted a comfortable home where we could spend winter weekends with family and friends and have the space to hang out, relax, cook. We started out as 'winter people' with a love of Squaw Valley, but we soon discovered how great summer is, too. We enjoy taking advantage of the amenities and activities offered in Tahoe Donner, in particular cross-country skiing and, in summer, enjoying the private beach club on Donner Lake.
What makes this House unique
Quite simply - we were overwhelmed by the setting of this brand new home. The views are breathtaking. It was love at first sight.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Property is centrally located to North Tahoe ski resorts as well as Truckee and Reno. Very clean and fully stocked house as advertised. Jennifer was very responsive prior to check-in and the security deposit was promptly refunded. We were so busy enjoying the area we forgot to use the hot tub. Maybe next time.
Thank you Jennifer
Thanks, Ruben. We are lucky to have this location, and next time, hot tub with mountain view is not to be missed!
Very Nice cabin. Excellent views!
Thank you for your review!
Amazing house on the top of the world
The chalet is an amazing home for a family get away to the mountains. Fabulously comfortable, amazingly convenient to lots of ski areas and sledding, the chalet is bound to be one of our family's go to destinations. Jennifer was an amazing host. Could not imagine a more lovely spot to spend a week.
Thanks, Tim. I'm so glad you enjoyed all the snow. It does feel like you're on top of the world here. Hope to welcome your family back again!
Beautiful mountain getaway
We were so comfortable and happy in this beautiful mountain chalet! Two families (9 total) fit so comfortably with room to spare and had such a great time. Hot tub babysitter came in quite handy as did the proximity to the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort. We’ll be back for sure!
Thanks, Keith! The hot tub is always a hit with both young and old. I'm glad you had plenty of room for your families to relax and enjoy the snow.
The views from both front and back of property are fantastic. Spacious deck off the back overlooks Donner mountain range. Plenty of space in backyard for kids to play, etc. Kitchen included all needed amenities and property layout helped kids and adults conduct their own separate fun. Cabin is conveniently located next to ski resort and downtown Truckee. Would definitely like to stay here again.
Thanks for your review Mark. The combination of a quiet natural setting with fantastic views yet proximity to town and several ski resorts are what sold us on this home! Our kids love the snowplay right around the house, too.
Fantastic home on the top of the hill!
Watch the sunrise and the sunset from this true 360-degree-view home. The great room is expansive with a family sized dining table and ample, comfortable sofas. A great location and a great home. The owner, Jennifer, was very helpful and easy to deal with. We will certainly be back. Highly recommended.
I'm so glad you enjoyed our home. It's nice to connect with fellow cross-country enthusiasts. We hope to welcome you back next winter.
In summer relax on the front or back decks and take in the view. Hiking and mountain biking trails start right down the street. In winter we have sledding and snow play right at the house.
