About Emma and Neil

Originally from the UK, we have been in the US for 15 years, where our 2 kids and 2 dogs were born.

Emma and Neil purchased this house in 2014

Why Emma and Neil chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We love Lake Tahoe, winter and summer. We chose this property because it is perfect for 2 families - the layout means that 2 families can stay together without feeling on top of one another. The 2 masters are both en-suite and at different "ends" of the house, with the 2 "childrens" bedrooms in between.

What makes this house unique

Having the house back onto trails is perfect for us, as we like to walk and hike, and this house allows us to be out the door and hiking in minutes. The extensive decking, fire-pit and outside seating are perfect for relaxing in the long summer evenings.

Lovely home in great location...a little cold though.

  • 4 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our group which was comprised of 2 couples, a young daughter, and 2 dogs. The home itself has a nice open floor plan for the common areas and the location is great. With easy access to Truckee and nearby ski resorts like Alpine, Squaw, and Northstar you're never far away from activities (although this season is super-busy with all the snow-starved Californians flocking to the resorts so leave early!). The only minor issue we had was that it was a bit cold in the bedrooms. We had to leave the doors open to keep the rooms warm while we slept. Luckily the beds came equipped with warm comforters that kept the chill at bay.

Owner's Response: Hi Nick, thanks for the feedback and glad you had a nice stay. The key with the heating is to not "over use" the gas fireplace. It looks great, and is great at warming the house, but it then causes the main heating (nest thermostat in the hallway) to shut down and the bedrooms to get cold. We may just need to move the thermostat, but then worry that the main house will get too warm

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

Pros-Overall a very nice house on a quiet street. Pretty nicely updated. Close to everything. Two master bedrooms. Back deck overlooks open space and very relaxing. Fire pit a nice bonus. Large garage. Kitchen has everything you need. Single level.

Pets apparently allowed.

Cons- Beds not very comfortable.

Wifi doesn't work throughout entire house.

Kitchen and dining area very dark all day long.

The cons are minor and we would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Eric. We have added a WIFI extender and there is now WIFI in every part of the house and the back deck. We have also replaced the mattress and box spring in the queen master, as another guest shared that specific feedback. The house is in the woods, and so the natural light is lower in some parts of the house, however there is extensive lighting throughout the house.

Great Family Friendly House

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful getaway in this beautiful Donner house. We love to cook and the kitchen was fully stocked with equipment. The great location backs onto open space with beautiful vistas. The 2 master suite layout is great if you have 2 sets of adults. The place appears to have been recently remodeled and the decor was lovely.

Wonderful family friendly in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here with another family of four and it was the perfect house. 2 kids were 4 years old and the other two were under the age of 2. All the kids were entertained with exploring the outdoors or playing with the toys/games that are available in the house. They also had a great collection of movies for kids. The kitchen is equipped with anything and everything that you would need to cook with (except the food obviously). The house was clean and very cozy. The beds were comfortable (we played musical beds since some of the kids crawled into bed with us). If you have kids and want to travel with another family I would highly recommend this house since there's two master bedrooms. Oh and with it being on one single level it was nice to not worry about stairs. We plan on staying here when ever we head up to Tahoe!
