Complete with three bedrooms and a loft, this luxurious and roomy three-bedroom home just nine minutes from historic Truckee also has a mudroom for stowing equipment, a game room with foosball table, and a luxurious jetted tub in the master bath. Whether you're anxious to sample the culinary fare in Truckee's burgeoning foodie community, or ready to head out on the trails at Donner State Park, you'll be ideally situated to all area sites and activities, no matter what you like to do.
Look down from the loft onto the living area, a comfortable and roomy space with high, angled ceilings, a huge sectional sofa where family or friends can congregate and chat, or queue up a DVD and watch a flick on the big flat screen. The loft is also a perfect place to escape with a book or your laptop (free WiFi), have some fun with the foosball table, or find your inner musician on the electronic keyboard.
At mealtime, head down to the kitchen where the beauty of hardwood floors and wood cabinets combines with the functionality of modern appliances including a gas stove, microwave, and dishwasher. Put on a CD and enjoy some music as you mix a drink at the handy wet bar, or settle on the plush sofa and enjoy your favorite cable show.
With room for 10 guests (8 adults max please), this lovely home has three bedrooms upstairs. The master is spacious and tastefully decorated and has a king bed, private access to the deck, a writing deck, a couch and a coffee table. Attached is a smartly decorated full bathroom with lovely tile work. In the second bedroom, you'll find a queen sized bed, a soft warm quilt, and a TV with built-in VCR. The third bedroom has two bunks, a twin bed over a full bed, and a twin over a twin and also has a TV so the little ones can watch a movie before bed. There's another full bathroom up here, and one downstairs as well, where you'll also find a washer and dryer.
Things to do? Since Tahoe Donner Golf Course is right outside your door, a stint on the links is an obvious choice. But Tahoe Donner isn't just about golf. There's also a pool, hot tub, tennis courts, recreation center and sauna and 35 miles of trails for hiking, jogging, horseback riding, or biking. In winter, Tahoe Donner is just one of the venues for winter sports, offering great downhill and cross country skiing, as well as places to snowmobile and sled.
World class skiing is also just a half-hour away at renowned resorts like Squaw Valley and Northstar. What else? How about eating! With 65 restaurants of every type, little Truckee has become the favorite haunt of foodies who flock there from everywhere to enjoy its diverse fare.
Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife���s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
The master bedroom is huge and amazing! The house was very clean and nice. We loved the location since it is close to the Tahoe Donner ski area. The only issue was that the water heater turned off and we had to fiddle around a bit to get it to work. They plan to replace it so I think it should be fine after that. The property manager Joe was great and very accommodating.
House is a great size for two, four person families and is generally true to the description. Housewares are quite run down with just a few rusty pans and the foozball table doesn't really work, with lots of missing pieces. Also, tub with jets doesn't work but shots water straight at your face. Frankly, I could overlook most of these for location and space, but the Vacasa management is AWFUL. The phone number listed in the house is disconnected ( no response via email either) and when I called the general Vacasa helpline, I talked to Ginger in Portland who promised to help and call back, but did nothing. All we really needed was some good snow shovels (sorry, but a bent snow shovel and a garden shovel don't cut it when you have a 20 foot driveway to shovel with two feet of snow, twice). Good luck waiting for them to plow you in or out. If it weren't for a Good Samaritan neighbor, it would have easily taken us four adults hours to shovel our way to the garage. We've shoveled plenty of snow in Virginia and Michigan and those shovels were pathetic. I think I will avoid Vacasa in the future as there are MANY other companies or families to rent from. I understand it was a big storm, but this isn't the first time we've weathered a snowstorm in Truckee, but it will be the last we weather with Vacasa...
There was enough space for our group of kids and adults to hang out and enjoy ourselves. We liked the large kitchen and living room for hanging out. The kids enjoyed using the upstairs to play games and watch movies in the bedrooms. And, the backyard area was great for snow play and sledding!
Pro: This was a great location. We did not hangout much in this house it was mostly just to sleep. It was very clean, and spacious. Lot's of bathrooms, and beautiful master suite.
Con: Limited hot water, and the steps to the front door were covered in snow and ice. Was a bit dangerous since we arrived late at night. the next day one of the attendees actually shoveled it for us. Also, the key was a challenge to get out. I called, but no answer took about 10mins. If you never have used the lock system I suggest calling ahead of time, and asking how to use it.
Overall, we would rent this location again, and may next year. Thank you for everything :)
