Why Donald Perettie chose Truckee

We purchased in Tahoe Donner because of all the amenities the community has to offer. No matter the season there is always something to do for both adults and children.

We purchased this home in particular because of the space and layout. It offers a large amount of living space and a layout that suits either one or more families. We love to entertain with families and this home works perfectly.

What makes this house unique

This home was designed to work for both kids and adults. It is perfect for multiple family rentals given the amount of sleeping space and layout. For the kids there is a game room with Wii, Xbox, video games, train table, dvd...(it can also sleep up to 8 kids (4 in beds and 4 on mattresses on the floor). For adults there is a gourmet kitchen and an outdoor seating area with amazing views of the Sierras. Additionally there is also 2 indoor jazuzzi tubs and a outdoor hot tub. Perfect for after skiing relaxation either indoors or outdoors. It is also located on a triple lot so the privacy is unmatched for Tahoe Donner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous home we all had such a great time and loved the private beach and the proximity of so many activities.

We did get the garbage in the bear box fortunately, my relatives from Washington have a cabin in the woods and understood what to do. We did see cub bears in the back yard and mama bear out front pretty amazing sight.

Thank you again

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

Even though the snow did not cooperate with our plans everything else did. The house was amazing and perfect for the 17 of us. Each family had their own bedroom and the kids room was great for the kiddos to play and sleep together. The kitchen and the open floor plan was so great for everyone to enjoy each other no matter what we were doing! Thank you for allowing us to stay and make memories at your house!!

Wonderful Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first summer family vacation - 4 families and grandparents - this home was perfect for our group! We had 7 kids ranging from 6 months to 7 years old and they absolutely LOVED the kids room/playroom and games. We knew we wouldn't be able to do a whole lot (seeing the sights, etc.) with so many little ones, but we enjoyed neighborhood walks and walked to the association pool/club house for swimming. The living area was large and open to the kitchen/dining area which had enough seating for all. The kitchen was impressive!! It was a joy to cook in and never felt crowded during meal preparations. The only hiccup we had, which was actually just added excitement and memories to the trip, was when the power went out.... due to a squirrel getting electrocuted at the corner power pole. The power lines actually are underground at this home which allow spectacular views, so the power company had to get a special part and fixed it right away. Don was very responsive and helpful the entire process.

We enjoyed our drinks and relaxing on the comfortable patio furniture on the veranda, and the hot tub was nice in the evening - this area is also away from the rooms so the kids could go to bed early and they were far enough away to sleep soundly. We brought our own superyard for the babies/toddlers to be contained in the living room, high chairs, and an extra gate to block the stairs.

Overall I can't say how much we enjoyed this trip, and we hope to stay here again! Thank you Donald!

Great home for the whole family !!

  • 5 of 5


We had a wonderful time at your beautiful house in Tahoe Donner. The gourmet kitchen had all a chef could ask for. We were three generations, all fifteen of us from ages 5 to 74, and we had a great time. The kids had the upstairs game room and the center patio and we had everything else. There was plenty of space for all. We enjoyed the pool at the resort and the lake was fun for the water sports.

We highly recommend your home.

The home is in a association that subsidizes a ski hill, cross country skiing course, golf course, tennis court, swimming pool, lap pool, health club, sled hill, equestrian area and beach. It is located in the Sierra Mountains which provide beautiful views of Mountain terrain and numerous hiking trails. The area is extremely child friendly given all the families that come up for the outdoor activities of Lake Tahoe. We are minutes away from the amenities of historic Truckee which offers shopping, dining and some nightlife. Access is easy from Reno Airport.
