About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Bring your family and friends to Chamonix Chalet, a chic and stunning Tahoe Donner vacation rental. As guests here, you have access to the local recreation center and are close to many of the best North Lake Tahoe attractions. Plus, you'll have a lovely seasonal fireplace to warm up to.

The Northwoods Clubhouse and Tahoe Donner Trout Creek Recreation Center are each about a mile away and have between them a pool, sauna, hot tub, and more. There are also great public Tahoe Donner activities super close!

You'll be impressed by the unique look and the luxurious amount of space in this bright and airy A-frame. The living room features a gas fireplace where everyone can cozy up with cushions and pillows. While the kids play on the soft carpet, you can use the sound dock to stream music over the WiFi or watch a movie on the cable-equipped TV.

Big family meals will be easy to prep in the fully stocked kitchen and shared at the dining or coffee table.

Perfect for a big retreat, this home has room for eight to sleep well in. On the bottom floor you'll find a room holding a queen-size bed and a sliding glass door. Upstairs is another room with a queen, plus a comfy chair. In the loft, you have two twins and a futon - a fun place for kids. There's also a sofa bed plus a crib if needed.

Two bathrooms make it easy for everyone to have a little privacy. Pack lightly, because there's a private washer and dryer, too.

Need a break? You'll find a relaxing sauna and hot tub at the Trout Creek Recreation Center and a family-friendly pool at the Northwoods Clubhouse. When the sun is out, you can share a game of tennis or basketball. (Please note that there is a small fee to use these amenities).

To get out on Donner Lake, rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boats at the Beach Club Marina only three-and-a-half miles from the home.

If you come in winter, be sure to check out the Nordic skiing at the public Tahoe Donner Ski Area only five miles away. For a rustic-urban experience, visit Truckee just four-and-a-half miles away for shopping and dining.

This family-friendly Truckee vacation rental is just where you'll want to stay for a memorable getaway!

Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfy and plenty of space location is great.

It was clean and had everything for us to make ourself a dinner.

Took us some time to turn on a heater when we arrived which was annoying.

location is nice and neighborhood is quiet. It's not too far up into Tahoe Donner and close to both the main rec center and the northwoods club. But the property is a bit rough... large ants all over the kitchen, really dated appliance (much of it doesn't work) and furniture, the top railing on the outdoor stairs is broken (be careful with your kids), gas stove is broken, front door lock is hard to operate and barely closes, old broken wood rocking horses with sharp nails sticking out (luckily it was me who cut myself on it, not my kids), etc. it was one of the cheaper options for the weekend so we went with it, so the price probably matches what we received, but probably won't come back to this property in particular.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

The house was just perfect for a 2-family vacation. The kids had a fun loft to sleep in while the parents enjoyed their own bedrooms. The house was well stocked with games and puzzles to keep everyone entertained. We had plenty of utensils and cookware in the kitchen.

The home did need a couple repairs. The gas fireplace was not working. I did receive a discount after reporting it. An outside railing also fell down due to dry rot. I received a prompt reply after reporting it. We checked out the same day it was reported.

Great escape from the city and heat!

  • 5 of 5

Rental is placed in a quiet mountain area close to downtown Truckee. Very peaceful. Lots of room for our family of five and space to spare (beds,too). Highly Recommended to other families.
