Cozy, dog-friendly home w/ shared pool, hot tub, on-site golf, & more!

**Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

Escape to the mountains and make this cozy Truckee retreat your home base for a relaxing and fun time with family and friends. Revel in the close proximity to both town, outdoor activities, and amenities - like a shared pool and hot tub, as well as on-site golf and a shared dock and tennis. And bring your favorite canine with you, too!

Located in the Tahoe Donner community just four miles from downtown Truckee, this vacation home makes grocery shopping and hanging with the locals a breeze. Right outside your door, you'll find many hiking trails to be utilized all year round. You'll be about two miles from the Trout Creek Recreation Center and the Tahoe Donner Golf Course. Skiing at several top-notch ski areas are within reasonable driving distance, and North Lake Tahoe is only 16 miles away.

Inside, this home is warm and inviting with wood floors and nice furnishings. Unpack to your favorite tunes, thanks to the stereo. Then sit back and relax on the leather sofa in the living room, and warm up by the fire while you watch a show or movie on the cable-equipped flatscreen TV, complete with Blu-ray and DVD players. Choose a movie from the in-house library or use the Netflix streaming.

Stop off in town to stock up on groceries at one of the supermarkets or New Moon health food store, then find a new recipe with the free WiFi, and work your magic in the kitchen. You'll have all standard appliances - including a dishwasher: everything you need to create hearty meals and clean up with ease. Dine together at the table for six, or head out to the deck in the summer. Craft a tasty barbecue dinner on the gas grill, and savor it al fresco on the deck - just off the living/dining area - with your guests.

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home accommodates up to nine guests. The family dog is invited, too, for a small nightly fee. The master bedroom is spacious with high, wood plank ceilings, a queen bed, and a full bath. There's even a telescope for stargazers and outdoor access through sliding glass doors. The second bedroom features two queen beds, and the third has a twin bunk bed, with a trundle (three twins). This home also has a private washer and dryer, so you'll be able to pack light and stay fresh during your stay.

When you're ready to get out and about, outdoor fun is at your fingertips, no matter the time of year. Hike or snowshoe right outside your door. Head to the shared dock and launch your boat on Donner Lake, or do some kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding. Have a picnic on a dock and soak up the sun, or head to the beach on the west end for some swimming and sunbathing. Perfect your swing at the on-site Tahoe Donner Golf Course or the Trout Creek Rec Center tennis courts.

In the winter, do some Nordic skiing or downhill at Tahoe Donner's slope. Or head to one of the more challenging nearby ski areas: Sugar Bowl (10 miles), Northstar (12 miles), Squaw Valley (13 miles), or Alpine Meadows (16 miles). Head to the rec center and play some Ping-Pong, or soak away the stiffness from a full day on the slopes in the shared hot tub. Take a leisurely dip in the pool, or enjoy a steam in the sauna.

Come to Truckee and create some memories with your family and friends. Reserve this lovely Truckee home today, and set yourself up for a fun and restful mountain vacation.

Richard’s house was ideal for our trip. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. I really like the location as there are no houses behind but there’s a nice little walking path. My family and I definitely plan to return to Richard’s house. Thank you, Richard.

The house backs up to a large area for walking the dogs. The kitchen is spacious & appliances worked well (bring extra bath towels),

This home was a in a great location - we were able to enjoy many things with our passes provided - the pool, the beach area, a nice hike around Donner Lake. It's close to historic downtown Truckee which was fun. The neighbors were extremely nice and it's VERY dog friendly which we loved. There is no gated backyard which we were not aware of, but there was a moveable tie down on the deck area. The description for us made it seem like there was a hot tub on the premises, but after talking to the management company when we arrived, we all realized that was a misprint and they were very sorry about it and refunded some of our cleaning deposit. The dryer didn't work and had someone out to look at it - who was SO nice and we both felt that there was heat coming out - so figured it may have been the amount of clothes put in the dryer. We unfortunately had issues after that with small loads but were able to hang dry our clothes so no big deal!
The home itself is VERY inviting. comfortable and has all the amenities you would need. I am already thinking about the next time we can head to Truckee and rent this home!

This was a wonderful vacation home. It was very clean, accommodating, spacious bedrooms and relaxing family room area. It is very close to grocery stores and many restaurants.

This home was great! There were 7 adults, 1 child and 1 dog and we had a great time in Truckee! Home has everything you need and is a very convenient location (especially for golf!)

Will definitely see if this is available next time we visit the area!

The house was very clean and lots of room. Thanks for a great weekend.
Chris K. Apr 2018
House was perfect for us! We loved the open layout downstairs with the bedrooms all upstairs. The backyard was open, covered in snow, and led to a sledding hill for the kids. The inside of the cabin had the nice rustic Tahoe feel but also felt up-to-date. We brought the dog and were a bit worried that a dog-friendly cabin might be worn down -- that was definitely not the case!

My wife and our three kids had a fantastic week, hated to leave. Already booked our next stay.
Natasha H. Nov 2017
We really enjoyed our long weekend at this house. We’ve stayed at a number of houses in the Tahoe/ Donner area, and enjoyed this one so much that we booked another long weekend a few days after returning home!
Mackenzie S. Nov 2017
This home was extremely inviting and clean for a pet-friendly unit. It was perfect for our birthday weekend, accommodating 8 people comfortably along with our dog. I would definitely stay here again! :)

Very nice 3 bedroom cabin with modern amenities , very clean and nice location within Tahoe Donner. Highly recommended!
Shannon W. Aug 2017
It was comfortable and clean. The two full/queen beds were in one room, so just make sure you are aware of that. We loved it and had a great time. There were even a couple of runs set up outside for the dog which was nice. Not sure if we just couldn't figure it out, but we could only use the system in the livingroom to watch Netflix from our instant play account, not a big deal though, because the wifi was perfect and we could update from laptops. Over all, we will gladly come back.

Our party of four were very comfortable staying in Richard's House. Great location for all the fun in the snow you want to have. Since it was snowing 2 out of 3 days we were there, we decided to snowshoe (rental at Tahoe Dave's ski and boards) and snowmobile (rental at (Lake Tahoe Snowmobile). Both were delightful experiences! Richard's House was clean....Nice open area between kitchen and living room. TV and WiFi worked! Beds were very comfortable. Vacasa was excellent with notifications and instructions. I would stay here again.

Sometimes there are things that you can not control that affect your attitude and your stay. When we arrived to our cabin in Truckee we ran into that experience so we called Vacasa in hopes that they would fix our problem. After working with Jessica and Joe we were fortunate enough to get to stay at the Richard's House. This house is perfect. It has all the necessities and is very cozy. Probably one of the most modern cabins I have stayed in up there in a long time. Can't say enough good things about this house and the customer service that we received during our stay. Thank you again Joe and Jessica for being so helpful and making our tip a success.

For our winter getaway, We always look for quality, convenience and hospitality (with the added perk of nice property for stay-in fun: hills for sled runs and plenty of backyard space for the kids). This getaway had it all.
