About the Owner

After years of enjoying all this mountain community has to offer, my husband and I splurged on our dream and purchased this home. We love the fact that its on a quiet inside street and only a few houses from a trail head.

It's rare when you don't see some wild life in the evenings heading down to the wetlands for a drink in the evenings. We've watched young fawns grow into their antlers, beavers coming out at dusk to build, the raccoons scamper, and even a bear or two lumbering, not to mention all the chipmunks, jays and woodpeckers!

Skiing, golfing, swimming and more are within minutes of the house. And trails to hike or bike are numerous.

When we feel like taking it easy, the hammock out back is where we 'hang'. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.) All, in all, if you enjoy the quiet of the hill, yet want plenty to do this is 'THE' place!

We stay here often, so we have added many amenities over the years. When ever we have one of those moments that say to you..'Hey, you know what we should get for the cabin?' We go out and get it, so you won't be looking for this or that to make your stay comfortable and homey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kathy,

We just got home to the Bay Area and wanted to give you feedback on our stay.

Thank you for maintaining your home so well and supplying it with everything we needed.

I can't tell you how our family was impressed by comfortable beds, down comforters, enough towels for everyone and a well stocked kitchen.

We have rented many homes in the area and other cities and this one is one we will recall with fond memories.

We even discovered the Baden trail that we hiked on for 2 miles.

We did drive into Reno twice to Cabela's and to the outlets. The smoke was bearable but can't image it being worse a few days before we arrived.

Hoping to plan another stay at your Truckee home next year.

Mountain Charm; 5 Star Comfort

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to do a three generation Thanksgiving last year. After looking around extensively, we chose this Tahoe Donner charmer because it offered so much for the price. We were not disappointed. The home itself is spacious and gracious. Our grandkids loved the many decorative bears everywhere and delighted in trying to count them all. I had the most comfortable night's sleep I've ever had on the new Stearns & Foster mattress. My wife was so pleased with how clean and well stocked the kitchen was with everything she needed (pots, pans etc) to make and serve Thanksgiving dinner for 11. Our kids loved the great high def tv, blu ray player and streaming Netflix as a way to unwind together after adventuring outdoors all day. The home is close to everything (Tahoe, Donner Lake, Truckee as well as the Tahoe Donner amenities) but feels completely private because it backs to open space and has a vacant 1/3 acre lot next door. The home was immaculate and the owners were very helpful without ever being obtrusive in the least. Thanks so much to both of them for helping to make Thanksgiving 2010 one our kids and grandkids will remember forever.

Perfect for 2 families and convenient location!

  • 4 of 5
Well maintained, clean and cozy home perfect for our 2 families. Use of garage huge plus! Well stocked kitchen, plenty of 'starter' necessities and all the comforts of home. There was even a portable bed rail and safety gate available ~ nice touch for a family with a toddler in tow! And to top it off, fresh orchids decorated the kitchen table and Christmas lights were put up for a festive addition to a holiday vacation.

Would highly recommend!

There is so much to do in the Truckee Tahoe Donner area year round.

Any season offers the best of the great outdoors.

For winter play the house is within minutes of some of the best ski

and snowboard areas - Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl,

Northstar, and Tahoe Donner. In addition to the Tahoe Donner ski area, for non-skiers/boarders Tahoe Donner has a snow play area, (within walking distance of the house) that offers tubing and sledding. And don't forget about trying the trails for snow-shoeing too! Want to warm up...try a winter swim in the outdoor pool at 80' water temp, or a spa at 95'...regardless of the outside temperatures!

Be sure to check out all the Tahoe Donner amenities at the Tahoe Donner website.

In summer you can play tennis, bike, hike, fish, canoe, kayak, sail, or swim in one of Tahoe Donners three pools or take a beach day at Tahoe or Donner lake, golf at one of the areas many courses, take a trail ride on horseback, or just bask in the sun off the back or front deck and bird watch! Still wanting for more? How about a work out in the gym, an afternoon sauna, a relaxing massage, or a trip to the spa? One thing is for sure, you'll have plenty to do and lots of choices too!

Historic downtown Truckee is a cute little town full of restaurants and

shops. Reno is just 40 minutes away with an international airport

and famous casinos. Beautiful Lake Tahoe is a 30 minute drive.

This property has been certified by the

National Wildlife Federation Organization as a recognized wildlife habitat area.

Upon entering you will find a large, cozy inviting living room opening to the kitchen, dining room and deck out back. This room also boasts a real wood burning stove for those chilly nights. The house also 'splits' easily to accommodate two families, with one sleeping 'upstairs' where there are 3 bedrooms, front deck and 2 baths, and the other sleeping 'downstairs' where there is another master, family room and deck area. It's great to be able to share common area of the living, yet separate to settle in for private time in the evenings.
