House was clean, warm and was in a great location for us to enjoy Truckee and a few different ski areas.

When we arrived to house at 8:40 pm, we Noticed the smoke alarm was beeping. Once we located it, we found that it Was about 12 feet up, I called the number for Vacasa. I was told to search around the house and look for 9V battery, which I could not find. The option that was then given was to go out and find one at a store, by this time the local stores were closed-so that wasn’t an option. I was able to reach the battery while precariously balanced in my husbands shoulders ( there was no ladder around except for the one bolted to the wall in the adjacent room for the loft) to remove the battery.

The sheets were very scratchy, even my 3 and 6 year olds commented on this. Pillows lumpy and uncomfortable and the internet only worked less than half the time. Giant TV in living room was in usable, Cable and internet didn’t work that great, so it wasn’t working. There weren’t very many extra blankets- I think 2, with a place that sleeps 8 there should be more extra blankets- especially since it snows in this location in the winter.

Upon arrival it was noted that we would have to pay extra to go to the pool that was advertised in the photos.$15/ person. Not worth it!

We live about 2 hours from this vacation home and just wanted a comfortable weekend getaway for the family- we were very disappointed.

I wish I could say I’d be back but at this point I will not be renting with vacasa again anytime soon.
Manager response:
Thank you for the feedback. We apologize for the TV and will ensure it is working as well as the internet. As for the sheets, they are standard quality hotel sheets from a linen program. We will speak with the owner regarding replacing the pillows. Please call us at anytime with any concerns or issues. We hope to see you again!

This home was big, clean and in a great location. Worth every penny and we are glad we stayed there.

The place was as advertised and everything went smoothly.

Loved that the parking pad was not a steep slop but a flat pull in! This put you at the main level where you enter into a mud room to take wet jackets and shoes off! Then you enter into a cozy living room/dining room/kitchen where there's room for everyone!! Great views from all the windows. Gas fireplace quickly warms this entire area as well as the regular whole house nest thermostat.
Downstairs is a great get away for teens or young kids to watch a movie while the adults drink wine up above on main level.
1 small bedroom on main level with two single beds. This worked well for my mother and I. There is also a 1/2 bath on main floor. Master suite with full bath downstairs that are separate. TV lounge area and back exit also downstairs. Bonus for someone young enough- a loft above the kitchen area but must climb ladder. Drive was a bit from main town of Truckee especially if you are not an expert driver in the snow. There are a couple of steepish hills that can get a little icy depending on road conditions as you drive in and out of neighborhood. Very worth it for the quiet area. These roads are well maintained by private snowplows -they even plowed the driveway! The roads are kept accessible but they can still get a little icy! I would for sure go back and stay longer next time. Two nights just weren't enough. We want to stay for a week next time!

Karen K. Jun 2018
Nice decks in both front and back and large driveway.
Jeffrey F. Mar 2018
Overall his was a nice place to stay and very family-friendly. We did have an issue with House Keeping. They never checked the loft. The bed had been slept in. We had to wash the sheets before our son could go to sleep in. There also was some sort of a stain on the wall behind one of the beds that needto be cleaned. Hopefully the owners or Vacasa will contact their housekeeping service about their thoroughness. Other than that this is a very clean and nice house. It’s close to skiing and other recreational activities. We would stay there again.
Manager response:
We are pleased to say the home is very clean and in great shape at this point, and we apologize if this was not the state of the home for this guest's stay.

Everything was fine. The fireplace pilot light was out when we got there - so we called Vacasa and someone (I think his name was Nathan) came out and got it working like a champ. It was super windy the first night - so it was a bit loud in the house - but that's weather for you. Good location - close to Truckee and Sugar Bowl. Our kid liked the loft space. We didn't really cook - but the kitchen seemed like it was outfitted well. TV and wifi worked fine. Snow removal was done in the morning and kept the driveway clear. All good. Thanks.
Geoffrey N. Mar 2018
Nice house with a good layout very convenient to Tahoe Donner amenities. There are a few things that keep me from giving 5 stars though.
As others have noted, the beds aren't particularly comfortable. The gas fireplace on the main level is not working (or is impossible to figure out). Some light bulbs are out. Finally, when we arrived the kitchen trash hadn't even been taken out by the cleaners.

My husband children and I loved it was so relaxing definatly would do again .
Mitch A. Feb 2018
In our opinion Tahoe Donner is best area especially for families in Tahoe area. Everything you need in one area. Unit is well appointed comfortable for the 4 of us. Could sleep up to 7-8 Like to come back in summer.

Had a wonderful time at Swiss Lane! Beautiful location, great layout and comfy furnishings. Highly recommend this gorgeous house!
Peggy H. Oct 2017
We had a wonderful stay in Truckee in this lovely mountain home. I felt we were able to experience living in an authentic mountain town and really enjoyed the location close to historic Truckee yet in a quiet neighborhood. I would recommend a walk in the neighborhood where I was welcomed with a smile and a friendly conversation by the locals. The house was immaculate.
Claudia S. Oct 2017
Felt like place was furnished on a shoestring. Blankets, art, furniture all very inexpensive ..... won't stay here again. And the clincher for me was the large Keep Out sign posted on the door near the bathroom downstairs. Assume that is owner's suite ----but really?? It was not welcoming to see that every time you came downstairs to the main bedroom that is located there.
And the gas log fireplace did not work and when we emailed ownervia address provided by Vacasa gotten Zero Response.
Manager response:
The fireplace is scheduled for repair on 11/20/17, and we will be removing the 'keep out' sign to replace it with a softer notice of it being the owner's personal closet. Thank you!
Kristen T. Oct 2017
This place felt like home from the moment we walked in. It was bright, sunny and comfortable. We will be back this Winter!

We spent a week here early in September. We found the house very clean with lots of light and two nice decks. The area is beautiful and very quiet. There was a lot about the house we liked but here are some suggestions. We like to cook and would recommend some basic additions to the kitchen in terms of silverware and plates. Bbq tools are needed. There is a nice supply of towels, we would suggest they provide washcloths too. Some basic maintenance is needed...the downstairs bathtub doesn't drain when using the shower and it should have a bath mat for safety. Upstairs in the half-bath, there was no hot water. While there is an online guide to the house, there are no instructions for the fireplace, we had no trouble figuring it out, but not everyone will. Overall, this is a rental that has a lot of charm and potential when needed repairs are made.

We reserved a home with Vacasa a day before we decided we would join in on a trip to Truckee with family members that had already reserved another home with with the same company. It was our first time ever using Vacasa and we were very pleasantly surprised! I was having issues with my payment processing online but I called and one of Vacasa's agents processed my reservation over the phone in 5 short minutes and was very courteous. The home we reserved was lovely and in perfect condition. We loved the layout and cozy feel of the place. It was very spacious for the size and we absolutely fell in love with it! We will definitely be using Vacasa again in the future!
