Spacious Lodge with Shared Pool and Hot Tub in a Lovely Wooded Spot near Skiing

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

A private hot tub, fireplace, grill, and proximity to Lake Tahoe attractions? This pet-friendly Tahoe Donner vacation rental has it all! Conveniently situated a little over three miles north of historic Truckee, this home is among so many outdoor and family-friendly activities.

As a part of the Tahoe Donner Association, this home allows guests access to Trout Creek Recreation Center (two and a half miles away) and Northwoods Clubhouse (one and a half miles away) for pools and sport courts, as well as the member-only Donner Lake Marina (six and a half miles away).

You'll be near access points on the developing Donner Lake Rim Trail, which opens to stunning views of the lake and Pacific Crest. And, your choice of public ski resorts (Tahoe Donner Ski Area, Northstar, Boreal, and Sugar Bowl) are three to 15 miles away and offer more activities than you can participate in on one visit.

This woody lodge stands out among a serene sylvan scene that will instantly ease you into vacation mode. You might have a hard time deciding which area you want to spend more time in - the spacious deck or the inviting living room.

Sunny days and clear nights would be perfect to share outside with the enticing hot tub and aromas of dinner on charcoal grill, while winter evenings would be a dream cuddled before the gas fireplace on the L-shaped couch while cable plays on the flatscreen TV.

Mornings will be filled with cheerful chatter echoing throughout the high vaulted wood-paneled ceilings above the kitchen and dining space. Take your pick between a fresh smoothie or strong cup of espresso with the provided tools in the fully stocked kitchen (check out the gorgeous back splash).

On the main floor, you'll find the main bedroom with access to that spectacular deck and an en suite bathroom. You'll really enjoy the log bed in the second bedroom and the comfy pair of beds in the third room. There's also a sofabed and a loft with plenty of room to spread out the provided air mattresses. This home also has a private washer and dryer and WiFi.

Guests at Tahoe Donner will have access to the nearby, member-only Trout Creek and Northwoods facilities where they can take a dip in the pools, get a massage, play tennis, and more.

Public Tahoe Donner amenities include the ski area and golf course, while bigger ski resorts like Northstar and Sugar Bowl are less than a 15-mile drive away.

This greenbelt area also features tons of trails for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. It's an outdoor-enthusiasts paradise!

This Truckee lodge is everything you'll want in a Tahoe vacation, so make plans soon!

Everything was absolutely perfect. The deck in the back of the home is amazing!
Daniel F. Jul 2022
The house was lovely, clean, well stocked with house supplies and really well set up for a family. I would love to stay here again but I did not appreciate the Vacasa service.
1. I had requested if we could check in @ 2, Vacasa sent an immediate form reply saying "standard check in time is 4" . When I petitioned to come instead 90 mins earlier Vacasa never replied.
2. There were no internet and no guest passes. When I reached out to Vacasa shortly after4 PM the online team was wonderful and nice and kind and lovely to speak with but we're unable to resolve anything, and kept having to share my concerns with "the local team" . They would not release any information for a local contact so we had no one locally to help determine when It might be fixed? Around 9 PM we still had not heard back from the local team. As s the house advertises internet and we had planned on it for work, we had meetings scheduled that had to be canceled because we did not have internet and did not have a local Vacasa contact to troubleshoot with.
3. We took an unexpected day off the following day and went out to the lake. When we returned to the house later that day the internet was working and there were 2 guest passes but it was too late to use either. We had lost a day of work because of the internet and the kids lost a day at the recreation center because of the lack of guest passes.
4. The book of rules in the house state check out time as 11 AM, which is standard for US hotels and vacation rentals. At 10 am our door bell rang and the cleaner was there saying check out was 10 am. When I showed him the check out book he was extremely gracious and told us no problem and to take our time . We felt bad making him wait so hustled everything together and got out a little before 1030.
5. I have received 9 emails from Vacasa, and 1 text message - all clearly automated and providing general information about the stay. It would have been a much better experience if Vacasa could put a little of that general marketing energy into ensuring guests staying in their properties had a way to connect with someone if there is a local issue.

Beautiful house and location. I really enjoyed the walking paths down the hill from the house.
Ashwini P. Jul 2022
We have been to Tahoe many a times but this was a welcome change. Since this place is less crowded we felt a lot more safer with our kids. The Donner lake was beautiful and calm. The amenities were great. Their shared club house was good for the kids and they had fun.
Would definitely recommend this to people, especially if you have small kids. Perfect getaway location with view, large living space, club house with pool, sauna , water slides and rooftop jacuzzi
Elena O. Jul 2022
This house has so much to offer. We really enjoyed the amenities and location. Behind the house is a trail track. Our family had a blast on this vacation.
KellyRae B. Aug 2021
This place is beautiful. The pictures online are genuine. The place was clean, very well equipped, and quite spacious. The hot tub was extremely clean, and the gas BBQ worked perfect. The neighborhood is peacefully quiet. The morning brought 3 young deer near the deck--a true bonus.
Ann M. Jul 2021
The back deck and wooded lot are beautiful, and there are plenty of hiking trails nearby. Loved that.
Barbara S. Jul 2021
The community is wonderful. The house is spacious, but the furnishings are old, the carpet is dirty and the cabinet contents are disorganized. This could be a lovely property with some updating. In spite of the above we had a good visit with our kids.
Manager response:
Hello Barbara, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

The house was roomy and with a nice layout for our family of 4 and a visiting relative. It was also super quiet, overlooking the woods in the back, without being too isolated. The neighbors were all friendly, and the setup of being on a "loop" made us all feel safe and comfortable. We loved the nature trail behind the house, which was great for daily walks with the dog. Also, having access to the swimming pools and Alder recreation center was a bonus. Close to Donner Lake and Truckee made bike riding and dining out all the more the accessible and fun.

Good size house with two living rooms. The tvs have been updated from the picture. We couldn't use the hot tub due to COVID but everything else was good. We even had bears RIGHT NEXT TO THE HOUSE two days in a row!
William M. Aug 2020
This rental home is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and has a large deck looking out over a greenbelt forest. Unfortunately the hot tub was locked down because of local restrictions, but otherwise it was a perfect retreat.
Clifton R. Aug 2020
We had a wonderful time in this very comfortable mountain getaway. Great shower and comfortable bed in master suite, a kitchen with every amenity imaginable, we would definitely rent here again.
Ronda B. Aug 2020
This is such a comfortable, attractive and well stocked home. I hope to stay here regularly.
Communication with the Vacasa management was excellent. They addressed my questions immediately.
If there were any improvements to be made at this property, I would appreciate deep cleaning of the carpets on a regular basis, and a sun umbrella for the deck. It is in total sun during the entire afternoon.
Again, this is a lovely property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Vacasa!

My family of 4 stayed at this rental for a quick 2-night getaway. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood with great access to all of the Tahoe-Donner activities. The house interior is lovely- the kitchen was nice and well stocked, the layout gives plenty of spots for families or a larger group of friends to spread out with 2 living spaces (one upstairs, one down), and our kids thought that the bonus bed loft in the upstairs bedroom was the coolest thing ever. We were really disappointed that the hot tub was not accessible- county regulations for COVID, not the owners fault. I do wish that the owner had reduced some of the house fees considering, though. All in all, we would absolutely come back to this house!
MOSUR M. Jul 2019
Hot tub, nicely equipped with updated appliances and everything in working order!
Erik S. Jul 2018
Nice spot with plenty of space. Amenities were on point.
Jennifer S. Aug 2017
This house has a nice lay out and the kitchen is well stocked. It is in need of some maintenance and cleaning, inside and out. We were disappointed that the hot tub was dirty when we arrived and when it was cleaned, we weren't able to use it due to the wait time after the chemical treatment. With some attention, this could be a nice rental.
Lyndsay C. Aug 2017
We loved this property. There were 8 of us and plenty of beds (we did use the sofa/pull out). Enjoyed sitting in the spa and watching the stars. Anything you needed was all right there- really appreciated having the basic food items (salt, pepper, spices)- made our Saturday evening dinner spectacular!. Wish we could have stayed longer, definitely recommend. Appreciated the instant book process.
Athena P. Sep 2016
My 1st Vacasa experience and definitely not the last!
Nothing but 5 stars all the way around.
Beautiful house and would love to come back every year if I could.
The kitchen was my favorite place to spend most of my time.
Christine M. Jul 2016
Are party was three couples. Plenty of room for us all. The kitchen is wonderful with everything you need. The bathrooms and bedrooms clean and spacious. The deck provides a lovely place to hang out in the afternoon. One clarification should be made in the ad - there is no ping pong table at the house - we were looking forward to that.
Diana W. Jul 2016
This property is beautiful and roomy with a large deck that overlooks the trees. The location is quiet and the deck is quite private. It also has a large, beautiful kitchen. Location is only minutes away from downtown Truckee and to Donner Lake. Overall, a good place to stay.
Matthew W. Jul 2016
The location was great. The house offers Donner Lake Marina guest access passes that we used daily.. Kids loved the spa.
Robert S. Jul 2016
Great property
Lauren G. Jun 2016
We really enjoyed this Truckee home. It was clean, very comfortable and the hot tub was a huge hit with our son.
