About Carla Lieske

We love to share the serentity and adventure of our Tahoe Donner home. We love to hear from guests who have enjoyed the luxury, warmth and ease of vacationing at Chalet Sierra.

Carla Lieske purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Carla Lieske chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Truckee is a delightful mix of old west charm and modern convenience. It is so easy to reach, no matter the weather. As a neighborhood, Tahoe Donner has everything guests could need. The comminuty is inviting and welcoming. The streets are quiet and the houses are beautiful. In addition, our home is 20 minutes away from such wonderful ski resorts as Sugarbowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Boreal. In the summer, we are just a few minutes from swimming in Donner Lake at the Tahoe Donner Beach Club, or at our own Tahoe Donner pools. We truly feel that Chalet Sierra provides the perfect all-season vacation.

What makes this chalet unique

Because we stay at Chalet Sierra ourselves, the house contains so many items that will make your stay perfect. The kitchen is stocked with extras to make cooking a breeze. The sheets, comforters and pillows are luxurious and cozy. There are dozens of movies for the kids (and many for grownups), and there are games and toys. We want our home to be beautiful and comfortable for every guest.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, spotless home is located in a community that offers many well-run, recreational activities. During our stay in July, we kayaked on Lake Donner, rode trails on horseback, played tennis and miniature golf, walked through shops in Trukee and learned some very interesting history about the area at the Donner Museum. The scenic drive to Lake Tahoe was quick easily accessible for more activities, dining and sightseeing on both the CA and NV side of the lake. I am sure that a stay here in winter would be ideal as the house is perfectly situated for winter sports and activities. Last, but certainly not least, Carla is as nice and caring a person as you will ever find!

R&R achieved!

  • 5 of 5

Too much fun and we can't wait to arrive again. Two SF families had a ball cooking in the fantastic kitchen that contains every accessory needed, enjoyed the trees on the back deck & hiked directly from the house. The proximity to Donner Lake and beauty kept us close to the house. We love summer on the lake.

The owners are super attentive to emails and respond immediately. They take pride in their vacation home...and they should.

Thank you for providing such a relaxing getaway. It was truly perfect for 2 families.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Sierra. There were seven of us, including a 1-year-old, and the home was perfect. It was very clean, well-stocked with everything we needed, and close to all the activities we wanted to do. Carla was extremely responsive and helpful prior to our arrival. I know we'll keep Chalet Sierra in mind if we travel to the Lake Tahoe area in the future.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet Sierra was a wonderful place to spend a snowy weekend with friends. Carla was incredibly attentive and helpful. The house is well stocked and had all the amenities we needed. My only complaint is the hide-a-bed in the den/4th bedroom, it should be replaced as its not worth sleeping on. Luckily we got the master suite (lovely), but our poor friends drew the short straw.

That said, I would recommend the place and consider staying again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review Robin! It means so much to us that our guests enjoy their stay. We are in the process of replacing the sofa bed in the den/4th bedroom, so we will be ready for your next stay. Don't miss the summer in Tahoe!

Easy luxury with loads of things to do for kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

Second time I've stayed here, felt like home so we came back! Very clean, comfortable and spacious house, with big windows on woodsy lot. Accessible and easy but with the mountains right outside. We had five adults and four kids (aged 7-12), but never felt crowded and all had good nights of sleep. Good kitchen for my foodie family; modern and equipped. Big deck. Big laundry room. Huge clean garage for our bikes and canoe. Good internet, and cable for watching some sports. Lots of extra towels, beach chairs, etc. Ten minutes to south part of Truckee for supplies, Safeway, huge Ace Hardware, etc. Huge plus for us is how much Tahoe Donner has to offer so close by--horses were all booked (plan ahead!), but we did all-family mountain biking, hiking, swimming at pool and at Donner Lake, all within about ten minutes of house. Lots of people at beach on weekend, but found lounge chairs each of three visits, rented kayaks and paddle boards, got snacks and adult beverages. Also did some fly casting and rented jet skis at the park next door. Last time I used the driving range at Tahoe Donner and played Coyote Moon, also right there, great course. I had figured we'd be driving to Lake Tahoe every day but ended up never going. Took the route past Sugar Bowl on way out of town, hope to come back in winter soon.
