Trip was great for everyone but house was hot and no screen wind

Hose was fine and would have been perfect for the stay except for the Hot weather and no screens in the windows.
Homey feel, if a bit worn

Nice place for 2 families with kids. Excellent beds with latex mattresses, including in the bunk beds; nice touch. Living room furniture has bit of 'hand me down' feel as opposed to 'antique', but we all had a great time.

Excellent ski house getaway, very comfortable for a family of four plus another couple.
All comfort features from your home (i.e. wireless internet, satellite TV, washer, dryer, comfortable beds)
Would definitely rent again

Would not recommend

This house was quite a disappointment. It is in need of a thorough, very deep clean - - food in crevices of the kitchen floor and countertops, layer of dirt/dust on the baseboards in all rooms, etc. Also, the downstairs is constantly freezing and there are no rugs to help make that space more comfortable. Granted, this is not advertised as a luxury property, but I still do not feel this home was worth what we paid.
Good family home in ideal location

House was easy to find. Upstairs was very warm upon arrival, in fact too warm. Downstairs, where two of the three bedrooms are was more tolerable. Beds very comfortable with good mattresses. No early morning back aches which is often the case with rentals. Access from garage to lower level very useful, especially I suspect during winter storms. Spacious garage for two big Suvs if that's your cup of tea. Everything worked just fine, although dishwasher could do with replacing soon. Nice that the house looks out to a small meadow across the street rather than another house. Would rent again.
Great house and location!

This is a great house located in a very convenient and beautiful part of lower Tahoe Donner. It sleeps plenty and has a very comfortable kitchen / living room area with wonderful views from the front deck. We will definitely come back.
