Fun in Tahoe Donner

Review submitted: September 14, 2013   Date of arrival: August 2, 2013

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

Review submitted: May 11, 2011   Date of arrival: November 24, 2010

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.

Thank you Kathy -

Thanks for your e-mail. We appreciated your flexibility in letting us have a late check out. We tried to do as much laundry as we could and leave your home as clean as we could, so thank you for your note.

We loved your house, and thank you so much for sharing it with us. We hope we can find a time to interact again over renting your lovely home.

Thank you very, very much,
