This spacious 2 bedroom penthouse ski-in ski-out condo is at the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski hill in North Lake Tahoe (Truckee, CA) with easy access to other resorts such as Northstar, Squaw & Alpine as well a cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
This peaceful condo is a great springboard to explore the Tahoe area and is close to big ski resorts like Squaw, Northstar and Alpine Meadows. It has easy access to other winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and sledding just couple of miles down the road on Northwoods Blvd.
Sleeps 4 people comfortably with a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two bunk beds in the guest bedroom. The living room has vaulted ceilings and great views of the surrounding mountains and comes equipped with a wood burning fireplace.
There is a well-equipped kitchen with full oven, microwave, coffee machine, cooking utensils and basic condiments. The full bathroom is equipped with a washer dryer. There is also a nice 40'' flat screen TV with a "smart' Blue-ray player with Netflix streaming (no cable). The master bedroom has a heated mattress, ideal for cold days along with extra space heaters in addition to usual heating.
Within the Ski Bowl Condo complex, a short walk away, are amenities like spa (great for relaxing after a day of skiing), sauna, gym and clubhouse (with pool table, fooseball etc.). The guest pass (included) gives you full access to all these amenities for free.
Interaction with Guests
Guests have the entire condo to themselves. There are two security cameras on the outside: one monitors the front door and the other monitors the patio door.
This is part of the larger Tahoe Donner development which includes access to seasonal golf, tennis, private beach on Donner Lake, lake water sports, horseback riding and multi-use trails. Shopping and dining is available in historic downtown Truckee, just 6 miles down the hill from the condo.
Public transit is not convenient. A car is generally necessary to get around in a reasonable time.
Other Things to Note
Be prepared for cold weather during winter. It is a good idea to always have a flashlight and a shovel in the car. I-80 frequently has snow chain control, so you need to either have snow chains or a 4 wheel drive.
1) No smoking of any kind, anywhere in the unit or outside on the deck, condo complex common areas and amenities.
2) No animals or pets.
3) Quiet time at night from 10pm to 8 am as per condo association rules. Any complaints by neighbors about rowdy behavior will be investigated and reported.
4) Please take off your shoes in the "mud room" (the enclosed front porch) during the wet season.
5) No more than 4 people staying in the unit. If you have a need for an exception, you must request additional people in advance (extra fees of $25 per person). Otherwise this rule is enforced.
6) Do not turn off breakers or the internet power/router and follow winter freeze protection rules in the unit (winter only).
7) Booking is your agreement to house rules and the house manual that covers how to access and leave the unit.
Excellent communication, great location, awesome condo. No complaints, had a wonderful stay. I would stay here again.
My stay at the Ski-inSki-out Condo was great. Too bad the ski area had no snow. Everything you need is at the condo and the view is beautiful. I enjoyed watching the rising morning light on the trees and hills around. It was very quiet and peaceful and a perfect space for my few days in California. I was surprised that there was no way to re-cycle anything. Property manager was very responsive about an internet issue and had it solved immediately. I will definitely use Air B&B again. Thanks so much for opening your space.
Very comfortable accommodation! Easy to access/ all information given was clear/accurate.
Cozy ski lodging. Not fancy but has what you need to enjoy a few days in Tahoe.
Big plus, are the great views looking out over mountains and trees. Nice eagle lair outlook with many angles unobstructed by any neighbors.
Truckee is a great place to stay to be: central to many ski resorts and good access to Highway 80. This condo is about a 10 minute drive from central Truckee.
Basics provided: towels, soap, shampoo. Suggestion would be a little more toilet paper for longer stays (1.5 rolls was low) and a dresser or some sort of cabinets in the mbr.
Netflix was appreciated. Kitchen is setup with what you need.
Anuj and Nicole did a great job emailing us detailed messages before arriving to make sure we had everything we needed to get into the house. Getting in was easy and we felt immediately welcomed. The master bed was really comfortable and even had a nice heating mechanism to ensure a very cozy stay. We enjoyed cooking in the full kitchen and lounging in the living room. The TV came with a netflix subscription and that was great for evening entertainment. The clubhouse with a hot tub and sauna were just 3 mins walk from the condo. Would definitely return!
The place was very comfortable and in a good location. Nicole and Anuj were very good about correspondence as I was booking the place. It was a bummer that there was no firewood available and so we weren't able to make a fire. The club house is a great addition to the stay.

We love outdoor activities like skiing, hiking (and backpacking) and biking. We love using AirBnB as it allows us to experience the real destination instead of merely being in a hotel. It is also convenient as we have a 1 year old son.
