Soaring pine ceilings and a rock wall fireplace frame 20-foot cathedral windows that look out onto spruce and aspen.

This 2100 square foot home is located on one of the quietest streets in Tahoe Donner and very close to the amenities.

The second floor is occupied solely by the Master Suite. A private deck with forest views, master bath, and King Size bed make a great retreat from the family (not that you don't love them of course.)

Downstairs Bedroom #2 - Full Size Bed and Twin Size Bed - Sleeps 3

What makes this house unique

Our family had spent several years vacationing in Tahoe Donner. We loved how quiet this particular street was and how close it was to the amenities. This home is so much fun to stay in, and has such a nice feel - we love having our family over for holidays to cook large meals in the kitchen. We especially like looking out the windows and relaxing by the fire.

Nicely updated, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Very easy and great communication. Worked well for our family of 6. Lots of nice extras that made out stay enjoyable. This will be my go-to for a future Truckee rental.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several VRBO properties, and while we've always had a good experience, this one was our favorite! The house is beautiful - we particularly loved the high ceilings and big windows with great views of the snow outside. The kitchen is amazing and well-stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed making waffles and appreciated the personal touch of Doug's waffle recipe. The beds and bedding were very comfortable, the bathrooms were beautifully renovated, and the entire house was nice and clean.

The location was ideal for us. The house is on a secluded and quiet street, but just a quick drive to Tahoe Donner amenities and a few minutes longer to Truckee. We were fortunate to get a lot of snow and we loved being able to just step outside the door and play in the snow. Having an attached garage was also a definite plus!

The owner Doug was a pleasure to deal with. He was very responsive to our questions and very accommodating. The welcome information we received was very comprehensive and thoughtful.

We would definitely stay here again!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and in a great location (quiet but not far from civilization). Doug (the owner) was great to work with. We had an issue upon our arrive at 1:30am and Doug took care of it immediately and went over and above, in the middle of the night, to make sure we were satisfied.

We will hopefully be back next year.

Thanks again Doug,

Great for families with babies!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this cabin for our family vacation and had a wonderful time! We took our 11 month old son and it was so great to arrive to a cabin with a pack n' play, a highchair, a changing pad, and a bin full of toys.

The owner was easy to deal with, always reachable, and the cabin had high-end finishes that made everyone's stay comfortable. Full gourmet kitchen, washer and dryer, super comfortable beds, and great proximity to all of the Tahoe Donner amenities. Decks all around the house, plenty of equipment like folding camp chairs in the garage. We also had beautiful deer grazing off the back deck and the street was quiet and pleasant.

I took off one star because had a broken toilet paper dispenser and some towel bars that were loose in the bathroom. Not a huge deal, albeit slightly disappointing for the price we were paying for the property. However, the owner was super responsive and made sure to let his maintenance know to fix it right away when I let him know about it. It just wasn't worth having our stay disrupted to have repairmen over for that.

Oh also, I *think* the property was supposed to have beach towels for us to use, we just didn't think to ask the owner and used/washed our bath towels at the pool. There was a big locked closet in the hallway that looked like it was full of stuff, so maybe they were in there, but the keys next to that closet didn't work.

One minor suggestion I would make is to provide some kind of window covering or blackout shade for the high window in the guest room (the one with the queen and twin bed). We booked a 3 bedroom cabin so our son would have his own room to sleep in but ended up not being able to use it because he needs it to be totally dark in order to sleep and there was no way to cover up that window. Luckily the pack n' play fit inside the walk-in closet in the master bedroom and our son was able to sleep in there, but I think its a simple thing the owners can do in the future. The entire rest house is filled with super high-end window coverings and the adults all had great sleep in their rooms.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome house with a true gourmet kitchen and very nice furniture. Only two minor issues: the pop-up exhaust hood behind the cooktop did not work and two of the four folding outdoor chairs were broken. I'm sure the owner will take care of these minor items.
