About Elaine Morris

We have traveled all around the world but our favorite place to ski, hike, bike, kayak and rock climb is the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe area. We settled in the San Francisco Bay Area (Palo Alto) in 2008 after years of leaving overseas and bought a second home in Truckee in 2013.

We have two kids (8 and 11) who are growing up too quickly so we bought our house in order to build wonderful family memories that will entice then to continue visiting us after the college years and beyond.

We ski in the winter, of course, and in the summer there are too many activities to choose from: hiking, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, biking, stand up paddleboarding, rock climbing, golfing, tennis are all just minutes away. We love taking our tandem bicycle out--especially riding from our house along the lake and up Route 40 to Donner Summit.

Our kids love going to the Tahoe Donner day camp up here during the summer. and then we have a few hours off for a kid-free adventure.

Why Elaine Morris chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We fell in love first with the house--especially the VIEWS, the open, spacious floor plan and and the contemporary aesthetic.

Then we learned about everything Tahoe Donner has to offer--so much to do in summer AND winter, great common facilities including the ski resorts, private beach club on the lake, swimming pool, equestrian center, golf course and a relatively hidden gem: the extensive system of running/biking/X country skiing trails.

We really appreciate the access to I-80 and all the various downhill ski resorts.

Truckee is also a great town--with a mountain town vibe that is the real deal.

What makes this house unique

There are only a handful of houses in Tahoe Donner with our sweeping views of the lake and mountains. We chose a contemporary mountain style for the home that doesn't compete with nature. Our house is just high enough for the views, but not so high that access becomes difficult in the winter months.

We love that the house is big enough for 3-4 families, so that we are able to host family and friend reunions and share the house with others. We always come up with multiple families and the evenings are filled with lots of people cooking in the spacious kitchen, long meals and then various board games and other conversations going on afterwards.

Everyone eventually ends up in the hot tub on the deck--soaking in the views.

The house was newly renovated in spring 2013 and everything in the house is brand new.

What. A. View. This is perhaps the first and last thought upon entering and exiting this property. The home itself is well appointed with elegant amenities and has a great flow. The hot tub and sauna were a little hard to get/keep heated, but it hardly detracted from our stay. Everything else was exceptional. There was easily room for 2-3 families or 4-5 couples to stay comfortably with their own space. Overall, a wonderful home and memorable experience ... and did I mention the view?! I will be returning.

Reviewer Comments:

We have been going to Tahoe every summer with the same group of friends. As our crew expands with more kids, it's been harder and harder to find suitable rental homes. Big Sky was the best house we've ever rented. It has tons of sleeping and play space as well as a fabulous deck & hot tub. And the house is just gorgeous, inside & out. We hope to rent it again next year!

"How did we manage to book a house like this at such short notice ? ". This was the question almost everybody in our group asked when we got there for the first time. Truckee is only a few miles away from Lake Tahoe and Lake Donner(which this home overlooks) is no slouch either. Our expectations were pretty high after looking at pictures posted on the website. But we were completely blown away looking at the property in person. The view from the deck is phenomenal. Though the rent is a little high(expected since we were travelling during the long weekend), It is totally worth the price. We will certainly look to come back again

Such a beautiful home! Plenty of space for us to all spread out. House is remodeled & up to date with gorgeous furnishings. We did have a little trouble with the heat the first day, but it was promptly fixed the following day. Trash bins fill up fast!

Reviewer Comments:

Big Sky is beautiful and the accommodations are luxurious. The view is spectacular to the point that you get weary of the amount of sun coming in through the huge expanse of windows. A few shades would be extremely welcome. A few service issues were lacking. For example, the propane tank for the BBQ was empty and the outside garbage cans were overflowing when we arrived. These were taken care or work arounds were approved.
