Summer is full of incredible activities in the Lake Tahoe area.
Beautiful Lake Tahoe is only a 25 minute drive from Tahoe Donner and well worth the trip. The lake is spectacular year round. In the summer, besides swimming, there is parasailing, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing and just hanging out on the beach. The tennis courts and golf course at Tahoe Donner are available to my guests for a nominal fee; call for a reservation.
There are numerous small shops in old downtown Truckee as well as a variety of good restaurants. It is a delightful little town with a long history of logging, harvesting of ice from the lakes to sell in San Francisco and now tourists. There is always something for everyone in this beautiful mountain town; including a rodeo in the summer.

Interaction with Guests
I enjoy helping people get the most out of their time spent in the Lake Tahoe area. It is one of my favorite places to be and I have been going there for over forty years so I know it well. I am more than happy to make suggestions or leave it up to you.
The neighborhood my home is quiet with beautiful trees, open sky and friendly neighbors. It is a great place to just hang out on the deck or go for a walk anytime of day or evening. There is very little car traffic which makes it very safe for children.
I would request that renters treat my home as though it is their own; leaving it clean and undamaged. My home is a non-smoking property. The neighbors are very respectful of the quiet environment in Tahoe Donner so your stay will be relaxing as well as fun: please reciprocate with no loud parties. Tahoe Donner has a 10pm to 8am quiet time...if you are looking for a place to let off steam and make a lot of noise it would be best for you to look somewhere other than Tahoe Donner. This is a no pet property due to family allergies. Thanks for your understanding.
The house is beautiful and homey. Had all that we needed for our family of 5. Suzanne was easy to reach and communicative. We cooked in the spacious kitchen and watched movies at night in the family room. Area is great for jogging and hiking. Safeway is close by and the village is only 20 min drive from the house. We loved our visit and would definitely stay again when visiting Lake Tahoe.
Suzanne's house is absolutely lovely. It was clean, modern and well-stocked. My family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for the Fourth of July and we did not want to leave! Both the Northwoods and Trout Creek pools are within a 5-7 min drive and the beach about 10 min. drive. We had more than enough room -- I think the grandparents would have been comfy in the third bedroom. Suzanne was an excellent communicator. She sent us an email in preparation for our stay that explained the area and house and she was very accessible. We would love to come back!
Suzanne's home in Truckee was absolutely amazing. It was spacious and well furnished. Check in and out was extremely easy and would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Tahoe.
Suzanne's home is a great home for 6-8 people. Very clean and has every thing in the kitchen that one would want. Easy to get to and 20 mins from Squaw Valley. Would definitely come back again.
We had a great time. The home was very inviting, and had a fantastic living area. We were lucky enough to arrive JUST before a pretty decent snow storm, and we enjoyed staying in while watching the snowfall and cooking in. I would definitely return and recommend to my friends.
We had an amazing stay at Suzanne's place in Truckee.. Her place is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle from travelers to locals.. Shopping for groceries or everyday items are just a quick drive down the hill.. I would definitely come back and spend more QT with the family at Suzanne's place.. Only sad part about the trip was the lack of snow the area had to offer.. Other than that we enjoyed every moment spent together..
Thank you Allen for letting me know how much you enjoyed my home and the quiet neighborhood. Please feel free to let me know if you are ever planning another trip to the mountains... I will try to rectify the snow situation although, as you can tell, I have not been very successful this year!
This was a very nice house. It lived up to its description and Suzanne was a welcome host who made sure that we had all the information that we needed. I would highly recommend staying here. We would definitely stay here again. (We were six people, 2 kids, 4 adults).
About the Host, Suzanne
I am a dental hygienist who lives and works in the East Bay near Berkeley, Ca, I have two grown sons and have been spending time in the Truckee/Tahoe area since 1972. It is an incredibly beautiful area with an abundance of things to do and see. That is why I invested in this property and want to share it with others. I love to garden, cycle, swim, hike, kayak, play raquetball and tennis and generally spend as much time enjoying the outdoors as possible. I know the Truckee/Tahoe area well and would be more than willing to make suggestions to those who are unfamiliar with the area. The peace and quiet in my neighborhood is rare; the star gazing is incredible with almost no light pollution. The neighbors are respectful of each other so it is a great place to relax and unwind.
