Why Sharon Vaughan chose Truckee
My family purchased this vacation home in 2001 because we loved to ski and spend family vacations in Tahoe. We loved the Tahoe Donner Ski Area when the kids were learning to ski and the convenience of a 5 minute drive. We like the convenience of Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine resorts are so close. We live in the Bay Area so it's a quick trip to the mountains and the relaxation of a beautiful home. The amenities are exceptional too!
What makes this House unique
This home provides a tranquil peace from the moment you enter the door. Upstairs the great room combines a mountain home spaciousness with fun game table and kitchen conversation. You can be cooking in the kitchen, chat with friends sitting at the counter bar stools, and watch the fire sparkle in the fireplace. Amemenities galore - there are lots of activities to choose from. In the backyard is a level lot to play in snow in the winter and create your own sledding hills, use our provided sleds. In the summertime, sit on the deck and watch the golfers go by from the backyard decks. Make a tee time and join in the fun!

Place was spacious and great for families! The beds were comfortable. Definitely recommend staying here if visiting Tahoe!
Everything was perfect for a winter escape. There was enough snow in the backyard to sled and play with snow without having to leave the vicinity. We actually left to the Truckee Donner snowplay area since we were thinking of tubing. But there was no tubing that day and there was the same amount of snow and hill-like appearance as we found in the backyard (free mind you). The rooms and house is lovely and pictured as is. There were plenty of towels and sheets. The garbage disposal wasn’t working while we were there but that was very minor inconvenience. Like another reviewer mentioned, it is a bit chillier in the downstairs room than upstairs but there were space heaters provided. I would stay here again next time. Sharon was very responsive throughout our stay. Thank you, Sharon!
Tahoe Donner Vacation
The property is conveniently located close to Tahoe Donner ski resort. We were a group of 2 families, and the layout of the house was perfect to accommodate us. We were able to easily communicate with the owner/manager to solve any minor issues we encountered during our stay. A few observations, the downstairs rooms are warmer than the master bedroom. The range hood in the kitchen needs cleaning, as it kept dripping oil while we were cooking (an easy fix but it needs to be addressed). Otherwise, we had a lovely stay, the house was overall clean, spacious, light and very cozy - as shown in the pictures.
Cozy and comfy!
This home is everything and more as advertised. Very comfortable, clean and well stocked kitchen! Looks better than the pictures. Will definitely go back!!!
