This is one of the most beautiful places in California. This large 725 sq. foot 1-bedroom / 1 full office / 1-bathroom split level condo is located in Tahoe Donner, a resort community, close to Donner Lake, Truckee, and North Lake Tahoe. The unit is on the ski slopes with great views of the chairlifts--and is
also very close to Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Donner Ranch and Boreal, etc. Go to Tahoe Donner website to read about the amenities of the community. It is 10 miles to North Lake Tahoe and 25 miles to Reno where you can gamble in both places. Nearby Truckee, which is just a few minute drive away from the condo, is a historic town with great restaurants,
shopping and summer/winter activities for all.

Small family that likes to ski in winter and hike in summer. Our unit is a great base for eveything in the Tahoe region.
Owners are very nice and responded immediatly to questions. Apartment is old, but if you are there only to ski and sleep, it is totally fine. Owners give you detailed instructions via email what to watch out for in the home and how things work. There is carpet throughout the place, which was cleaned the morning we arrived. Basic supplies are in the kitchen, even a small coffee machine.
We took sleeping sacks instead of using the sheets due to the dryer being very slow and you have to vacate by noon. Worked well!
The bathroom sink is very old, you habe to be careful closing the handle of the faucet, otherwise it keeps on dripping. We did not use their shower as we went to the spa every evening (hottub!) and showered there (big steam shower). The club is great, located literally steps away from the apartment and includes pool, table tennis, soccer table, a nice fire place with rest area, a small gym and infrared sauna, and the large hottub.
I would give the apartment only three stars, but due to the proximity to the lift (you can cook your own lunch instead of paying at the cafeteria) and due to the spa, I gave it four.
We are a family of 4. We stayed here for 3 nights for this winter holidays. Well maintained and value for money. Didn't find any issues other than no cable TV. Owner is very nice and easily approachable over phone, very prompt in returning the security deposit.
We stayed her for a 4 day weekend to attend a wedding in September. It was perfect for us, affordable with all the basic amenities. Our 2 year old slept on the office futon. We brought our own sheets because we had an early flight on our last day and we washed towels the day before departure (took 2 cycles in the dryer). Loved having the option to clean ourselves and waive that fee. The complex was nice and quiet. It's about a 10 minute drive down to Truckee or public access to Donner Lake, and 20 minutes to Lake Tahoe. The owners were responsive and prompt with info. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks!
Stayed here with my wife and 3 yr old daughter for a few nights while we attended a wedding at Donner Lake. Not far from the lake or downtown Truckee. Very clean and spacious condo. Can't wait for another excuse to go to the area and stay here
We enjoyed our stay and found the property to be a great place for a weekend with our two kids. The owner answered our questions in advance and answered his phone when we called with a question on arrival. It's right next to the ski lifts and fitness center with jacuzzi as described. If you are looking for a good value rather than a luxury condo this is the place!
Easy to book. Owner very responsive and helpful. Condo clean. Nice that you can clean it yourself rather than pay a cleaning fee. We enjoyed our stay. Use of the condo association lodge is a nice plus too.
This unit is just a few minute drive from downtown Truckee, and about a 10 minute drive to either Northstar or Squaw Valley.
