About Melinda and Alan

We love to hike, ski, bike and enjoy friends and family. We've traveled all over, but have not found a place we love more in the world than Lake Tahoe & Truckee!

Melinda and Alan purchased this house in 2014

Why Melinda and Alan chose Truckee

Before purchasing this home, we looked for over 2 years in the Lake Tahoe area. We love that it is so convenient to so many things like Lake Tahoe & Donner Lake, our favorite towns Tahoe City & Truckee, all the major Ski areas, as well as all of the amazing amenities within Tahoe Donner. The house is like new and in excellent condition which can be a challenge to find in the Tahoe area. It's stunning, comfortable and we fell in love with it. We hope you will too!

Great house, comfy, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were really responsive and nice. The house is warm and cozy. Beds are awesome and the two master suites was really nice. Only downfall is the open loft but we survived. Just have to be a little quiet in the morning. House is immaculate, well appointed kitchen, games, movies and great location. Overall a great house and stay! Thank you!

Great house and amenities

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful, well-kept home fun for 2 families! Note that the loft area is open to the living room if you’re looking for a closed bedroom area for kids, but it worked out. They provide games and movies and fun for the whole family.

Jewel in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property and prime location. Decorated elegantly, yet comfortable-kids and adults have fun with the pool table/ping-pong table – air hockey and great family room. Each room has a personal touch that all our kids loved, Great photography artwork throughout, Love the mud room and makes it easy coming home from outdoor activities .

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We also consider our home to be in a prime location; because when you want to be first to the ski resort on a powder day, being in the lower elevation of Tahoe Donner, having a relatively flat driveway, and having some of the first streets to be plowed is a big plus! We recently installed Boot Dryers and an Overhead Fan in the Mud Room for drying all your damp winter clothing. It’s also a great place to drop all your things when you arrive before removing your shoes and heading upstairs. Glad you had a great time and hope to have you back again.

Expert Craftsmanship, as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The property is located right off of HWY 80 which is a huge plus. Everything was near immaculate, and the attention it receives shows. Since there is a lot of care shown to this property, make certain that you purchase an insurance policy so you have peace of mind during your stay-we do have good kids, but accidents happen. It turned out we didn't need it, but better safe than sorry.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such good care of our home, we love having great guests and would welcome you back any time. We do try and keep our home in excellent condition; we also don’t rent our home too often so hopefully it stays this way for us and our fortunate guests to enjoy. Our home was setup with kids in mind and almost all our guests are families with kids and occasionally accidents do happen but we’re glad there were no accidents on your watch.

Location and Service Driven Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love luxury rentals in the Donner Tahoe community and this home did not disappoint! This home has luxury fixtures throughout, fun indoor activities, and it’s very clean. Spacious interior and centrally located to Donner Lake, Tahoe, Reno, Etc. We went hiking, boating, swimming and experienced a two-hour thunder storm which was awesome. Melinda and Alan were transparent throughout the rental process and extremely helpful and service driven. We’re are looking forward to your next trip!
