It's been a family dream for us to have a retreat in the mountains. We wanted a place that felt like a home away from home which we could also share with family and friends. Our family loves skiing, snowboarding, x-country, open-water swimming, running, road and mountain biking, triathlons, music and having adventures outside.

CHRISTOPHER JONES purchased this house in 2013

Why CHRISTOPHER JONES chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We'd done ski leases in the Serene Lakes area and rented closer to Lake Tahoe but found Tahoe Donner to be the right combination of convenience to everything we love doing, amenities for the whole family for all four seasons, and being only 3 hours from home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is both beautiful and comfortable and supports multiple families vacationing together well. Easy access to running, biking trails and very protected for kids playing outside. Easy access, flat driveway that accommodates plenty of play and cars. Ping-pong, basketball hoop - it's all here. We also have a place to work for those needing to combine work/play vacations.

Comfortable home in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generation family vacation was enhanced by Christopher's beautiful home. The welcoming great room and gourmet kitchen were a perfect gathering place for our large family while the downstairs media room kept the 6 grandchildren happy after our busy days at the recreation facilities. Since this was our first time staying in Tahoe Donner, we were pleased with all the activities available. We took advantage of all of them! The guest cards Christopher provides gives you access, but you still must pay $8.00 per person per day to use the private beach club and pools.

Christopher is a wonderful owner to work with, and returns your calls, texts, or emails quickly. Since this is the family's second home, it comes very well stocked with everything to make your stay comfortable. The kitchen is superbly stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans, etc. The bedrooms are small, but you don't spend much time in them since the rest of the house is so spacious. the beds are top of the line, but are very firm. Mattresses are always a subjective thing, and we prefer ours a bit softer.

You will enjoy your time here and will want to return often.

Hands Down The Most Comfortable House We have Stayed In!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes in Tahoe Donner for the past 7 years. Everyone in our family agreed that this house was the best! Super comfortable and spacious, it can easily accomodate two families. Chris, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. The house was well stocked and clean. It really felt like staying at a friend's house. My only hesitation recommending this property is that it won't be available next time we want to rent it.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous, with high-end furnishings and appliances. Layout of rooms was perfect for 2 families with plenty of space to spread out. Owner was incredibly well-organized, helpful and in contact with us throughout the planning process and our stay. No doubt we will choose this home again for future stays.

A perfect place for 2 families traveling together

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with two young kids meeting up with the grandparents (and their two large dogs), and this place worked out perfectly for our needs. There are two bedrooms on the top floor and two on the bottom, making this a perfect retreat for two families traveling together.

The top level is super comfy and inviting, with soaring ceilings and an open floor plan kitchen/living/dining. We spent most of our evenings hanging out there, though we did have movie night one night in the media room downstairs, which comes equipped with a plasma, sound system, and DVD library.

We visited in the summer, and spent most of our days hanging out at Donner Lake, which is a short 10 minute drive away. We also headed up to Tahoe, which was a quick 30 minute drive. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. The town of Tahoe Donner is close, with a Safeway and a natural foods market for your cooking needs. I can see how convenient this place would be in the winter too!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be coming back shortly!

Beautiful Family Cabin w Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a fantastic place to stay in Tahoe. It's modern and beautifully decorated, with tall ceilings and great light. But it's also extremely comfortable and homey - it's just as nice to stay in and hang out all day as it is to get outside and explore.

When you do venture out, Tahoe Donner is a great spot. We had never been to Donner before, but the location was very convenient. Close to Donner Lake, Northstar, and the shops and restaurants of Truckee. And you have access to all the amenities of Tahoe Donner - the gym, shops, restaurants, golf course, playground, and many trails.

As for the house specifics, there are a bunch of bedrooms on both floors, so you can easily fit a big family and stash the teenagers downstairs. The kitchen's great - we cooked a lot and found ourselves just relaxing around the kitchen before and after meals. We watched movies many nights on the bigscreen downstairs before jumping in the hot tub. And the huge open living/dining/kitchen area was a great playroom for our son.

The owners were also very quick to respond, attentive to our questions and helpful - they left easy-to-follow instructions on the house and info on how to use the facilities at Tahoe Donner.

All in all - great place to stay. We'd definitely go back again.
