Truckee House Rental Photos and Description

An ideal 2-story mountain home featuring an open floor plan on the main floor opening up onto a large deck with very private forest views perfect for entertaining or relaxing. The house is situated on a very quiet street. Beyond the great room there's lots of private space in two master bedrooms and a large family room which is on the lower level.

The main living area comprises a great room including the living room, dining room and kitchen. The floor to ceiling windows let in lots of sunlight and mountain forest views. Enjoy the entertainment center with a 50" flat screen HDTV, relax in front of the wood burning fireplace or entertain at the large kitchen island with bar stools and large dining room table. Kitchen comes fully equipped with all essentials and well stocked with staples such as spices, condiments, cooking oils, etc.

There is also a separate living space downstairs - the Family Room with a large screen TV, gas pot belly stove, air hockey game and wet bar creating a great 2nd hang out space for families with kids or folks needing more space.

The bedrooms on the main floor are the Master Bedroom with a walk-in closet and full bath with a jacuzzi tub, separate shower and double vanity. It has a beautiful Cal King 4-post bed and opens up on to the front deck for the morning sun. The other bedroom on this floor is the bunk room with two bunk beds and plenty of room for kids to hang out and play games. This bedroom has an adjoining full bath with vanity and a tub shower. The third bedroom is downstairs and is the 2nd Master with a queen bed with it's own full bath, vanity and tub shower. And the Family Room also has two futon couches that sleep four additional people.

We are situated in the Tahoe Donner community which has several heated pools, including a lap pool, kids water slide, four jaccuzzis, sauna and steam rooms, workout and massage facilities, a beautiful golf course, tennis center, horse back & mountain bike riding, it's own alpine ski resort and tons of cross country and phat tire bike trails. Guest passes allow access for up to 8 people to pool, rec center, tennis, trails, beach club and more. In fact, you can get on your bike or strap on your hiking shoes or x-country skis and hit the trails right from our back yard. There's also a large open space behind our house that's great for long sled runs!

Tahoe Donner is just off Highway 80 in Truckee so you are just minutes away from lots of casual & fine dining, two large grocery stores, hardware stores, cafes, etc. And the large ski & recreational resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl and Northstar) are all within a 15-25 minute drive.

Come up and enjoy a weekend or week of relaxing, adventure and the fresh mountain air. Guest passes will give you free access to most amenities for a discounted day long rec fee and discounted rates for chargeable items like golf, horseback riding and downhill skiing. It will be a memorable experience you won't forget with a super comfortable and spacious home base. We love it! And we're sure you will too!

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

So nice to again be in Tahoe at your beautiful Donner Lake Property! Your mountain home is so warm and inviting- we loved sitting out on the deck enjoying the peaceful views, which included several deer passing by. We also enjoyed the membership pass to the pool and beach for a reasonable fee. We look forward to visiting again- thank you!

Spacious, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying at Henrik's cabin. Everything went very smoothly checking-in and the property was accurate to the pictures and description.

The cabin is located in a neighborhood, but feels secluded. It's a ~10 minute drive to downtown Truckee with shops and restaurants. Everything was very clean upon our arrival. The hot tub is nice and large. We had plenty of room with 4 adults. The gas grill and patio were a nice option during the summer. There are 2 master-style bedrooms with their own bathrooms. There are walking trails that run behind the house beneath utility lines. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Awesome Tahoe Getaway; Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this home and couldn't have been more impressed with the home owner's attentiveness and accommodations. Hendrik is the best! The house was GREAT for our three families with young kids. Everyone slept comfortably in their own bedroom and private bath - common area was very comfortable and relaxing. The best part for our families with young kids was the expansive space in the back for sledding and snow shoe-ing! Hendrik had sleds which we used basically the whole weekend. We would definitely come back to this house!

Perfect House for

  • 5 of 5

Home was very accommodating for our group of 10. Both the upstairs and downstairs were quite comfortable and the heat was already on when we arrived. Sleeping downstairs next to the potbelly stove was super cozy. Nicely stocked kitchen if you plan to cook. Really enjoyed the Bluetooth stereo in the living room. May want to bring board games as I did not see any at the house, luckily we came prepared. Would defiantly love staying here again.

Perfect House for 10!

  • 5 of 5

Great Home that is comfortable and has all the amenities. Really practical house that makes it very comfortable for a large group. The arrangement of beds was perfect to allow couples to have privacy and singles to each have their own bed.

Would recommend turning on the downstairs stove upon arrival so as to heat up the downstairs for the night. The Nest thermostat does not heat the downstairs as well as the stove.
