Colleen Wanty purchased this house in 2012
We love the outdoors. Mountain biking, skiing, hiking, and water sports...all that Tahoe has to offer. We purchased this property because of all the places we have visited this is the place we keep coming back to enjoy.
We had rented many properties in and around Tahoe Donner. We love all of the amenities and family friendly atmosphere of Tahoe Donner. We fell in love with the rustic yet modern design of this house. The floorplan design, soaring ceilings, extensive use of wood, natural light and unique architectural touches throughout the house make it a great house to entertain family and friends in Tahoe.
We stayed here with two other families for 3 nights in early January. The owner was very responsive to our last-minute booking inquiry and was also very accommodating in working with the cleaning crew to make sure the house would be ready for us as another group was leaving on the same day we arrived. The house has a large kitchen with plenty of space so that we weren't constantly getting in each others way. The bunk room also worked great for the 5 kids. The three-car garage was also nice so that everyone had an indoor parking spot.
This was a beautiful home for our extended family gathering for Christmas. There were enough rooms so that each adult could have a room and the kids from all the families could bunk together in the bunk room. The living space was all connected so there was room for everyone to be together to play games or watch tv. It was a great (and clean) kitchen to cook for a large group. We would definitely book this place again. Colleen was very responsive to our booking request and very organized in the instructions for the house. Plus the large 3 car garage and plenty of driveway space was nice to have.
