House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We reside in the SF Bay Area (Sonoma County). Mark is in the local wine business and Kathie works for a large Biotech firm. We've owned and enjoyed our Tahoe Donner property for several years and have successfully rented it over this time as well. We made a decision some time ago that we don't expect rental income to cover the costs and therefore don't keep it rented all the time. We'd prefer to keep wear and tear to a minimum and therefore tend to shy away from very large groups, last minute discounts, etc. We always check to ensure our rates remain reasonable and amenities are competitive.
Owner purchased this House in 2000
Why Owner chose Truckee
We had stayed in various rentals around Tahoe Donner for many years. We love the area and wanted a home that would provide family time and memories. A place that was enjoyable in winter AND summer. We wanted a home that was clean, comfortable, and not full of second hand furnishings. Lots of snow (house is at 6700' elevation), but without the wind of the homes on the hills or steep, winding, icy driveways. Not only has this house has fit the bill for us in the above ways, we love the layout. Nice sized bedrooms, open kitchen to the large dining table, easy garage access, great covered deck off the back to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. An additional bonus is the Tahoe Donner location. Close to Truckee, Lake Tahoe and the big resorts, yet located off the 1st exit coming into Truckee. Saves us 30 minutes both in and out (and that's without weekend traffic!!) On a Friday night or Sunday afternoon this is a non-trivial benefit..
What makes this House unique
We have several favorite Tahoe Donner amenities. During the winter, the local ski and sled hills are fun and convenient. In the summer, we enjoy walking and hiking the awesome trials, going to both pools, boating on Donner Lake at Tahoe Donner's private beach and Marina. While not golfers, this is one reason many owners buy and live here. Having a local Bar and Grill and a pizzaria is terrific as well. We often go into Truckee for shopping and restaurants (favorite Mexican restaurant in N Cal is El Toro Bravo), drive around Lake Tahoe, or ski Northstar, Squaw or Sugar Bowl.

The property owners went above and beyond to accommodate me when I needed last minute special arrangements. Check in was easy, location was great. We enjoyed our stay.
Convenient location and clean property
We've enjoyed our stay with another family in this property during Christmas. It's only a few minutes drive from Tahor Donner Ski area. We could've walked to the ski place but with all the equipment we drove. The property is clean and the check in process was super easy. The owner is nice and responsive. This will sure be our first choice if we're coming to Tahoe again.
Great location, walking distance to ski.
Perfect property for families!
We had a wonderful stay! The owners were kind enough to let us check in a few hours early which was a huge help! The house was fully equipped with all necessary amenities. Our children had a wonderful time. We highly recommend this home :)
