This is our family vacation home and we love to spend time here with friends and family, and we hope you do too. We’ve put a lot of effort into making the house comfortable and easy-to-use. We really only have one house rule: We ask that you respect our home and treat it as you would your own.
1. Please leave your shoes and boots in the mud room between the front door and garage entrance.
2. This is a pet friendly home, but please keep pets off furniture and beds. Our own dog Chip abides by this rule!
We had a wonderful trip into the Tahoe area. The Donner Tahoe location of Matthew's home is a great location for quick access to Squaw Valley as well as Lake Tahoe. The house was clean and very well appointed. My family and I enjoyed the association pool facility and my kiddos did archery and played on the playground. Nice perk for families. Also, check out Truckee Thursdays street fair. What a great time. Thanks Matthew
My experience was short and wonderful. I love how easy it was to feel at home. Hassle free and felt like our own. It was cozy with a beautiful location. I really enjoyed the available Netflix and TV. We really enjoyed our experience and hope we can stay again soon.
Matt was a fantastic host - quick responses, good instructions, and very accommodating. The home is also exactly as pictured - comfortable, and roomy enough for my group of 8 folks. The deck was also large and perfect for lazing around and getting some sun! Wonderful home and host. I'd love to come back sometime.
We had a great week at Matthew's Tahoe home! Everything was as advertised and we could tell that the home is well cared for. We met Torrie on the way in and let us know how to get in touch with her (and gave us clarity on the best place for ski school for the kiddos). Highlights for kids were looking for the resident bear, fighting over the top bunks and playing in the 1/16 of an inch of snow that fell one nite; for adults it was comfortable beds, watching the Dubs on the big tv and the remote control gas fireplace. If we make it up this summer, would definitely try to rent Matthew's home again!
Matthew was great and proactive about ensuring that we felt comfortable. The home was perfect for 2 families of four (the kids slept in 1 room together) and convenient to skiing. Excellent experience.
