Cozy and Quiet Home with Great Tahoe Donner Amenities: Shared Pool and Hot Tub

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

With plenty of room for up to 10 guests at this charming Tahoe Donner vacation rental, you can relax all day in the shared pool, hot tub, and sauna or partake in endless activities nearby!

Tucked away quietly among the pines, yet less than ten minutes from Interstate 80, this four-bedroom home with an inviting loft includes close access to skiing, golfing, Donner Lake watersports, hiking, and more.

The welcoming mood of this rental will make each of your guests feel comfortable and cozy. There are plenty of places to snuggle up after a fun-packed day in the snow or out in the California sun.

Upon entering, you'll notice the natural woodsy atmosphere outside the home is brought indoors with the abundance of wood furnishings. If you're hosting a reunion or just want to spend time with loved ones, the spacious living room is perfect. Everyone can gather on the plush couches around the wood-burning fire.

For unforgettable family meals, the kitchen is your playground. It's fully equipped with all the appliances you'll need and lots of counter space. There's even a slow cooker so you could set up dinner in the morning and come back to a home filled with delicious smells! The crew can enjoy eating around the dining table with an eye-catching deer antler chandelier overhead. There's also a high chair for your little one. If you caught some fresh fish, head outside to cook them on the gas grill.

After a day of boating on the lake or snowplay at a resort, all 10 guests will sleep soundly in the seven beds! There are two bedrooms on the main level - the master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom with soaking tub and a walk-in closet (including a crib, if you need one), and a bedroom with two double beds and a separate bathroom with a standing shower.

The other two bedrooms are upstairs, each has a queen bed. The third bathroom is also on this level and has a shower/bathtub combo and a separate vanity area for convenience.

If you want to simply lay back and watch your favorite shows, you can watch cable programming here, and you can even stream music on your laptop with the WiFi. Plus, there's a washer and dryer.

During the day, you'll have plenty of activities to choose from. A mere eight-minute drive away is the Tahoe Donner Clubhouse and Trout Creek Recreation Center, which offer two restaurants, a spa, pools, hot tubs, fitness room, game room, and basketball ( a small daily rec center fee may apply). For skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and more outdoor fun, many of Lake Tahoe's premier resorts are a 20- to 25-minute drive away, like the popular Northstar, the luxurious Squaw Valley, and the charming Soda Springs Mountain Resort.

Bring the entire family to this North Lake Tahoe vacation rental for a getaway you'll never forget!

Thanks for everything. It was a pleasure to stay in your home. It had everything we needed.
Minerva M. Nov 2020
The house is nice, but there are things that need to be fixed. Shower broken, recliners on sofa are broken, neither one would lay back. Even though the furniture could be updated the house itself is pretty nice. The spot was perfect and we had SNOW! The kids had a blast and the patio deck was the perfect size. BUT the best thing about this was the communication between Karen from Vacasa and I. If I ever needed anything she was on it (I asked for salt for the driveway and it was there within half an hour). She was easy and gracious to work with. I will definitely always use Vasasa. The price was good, too.
Manager response:
Hi, Minerva! We appreciate your feedback and are so glad you were pleased with our services. The shower has been fixed, and maintenance will be handling the recliners. Thank you!

It's a beautiful home if you are travelling with family or friends. Great location to stay if you are visiting Lake Tahoe.
Amazing place for star gazing.

Good location. Large lot. Big rooms and comfortable beds. House could use updates and repairs, but everything there works.
The problem I had was the housekeeping. We arrived to smelly garbage left in the garage. Baby diapers do there trash in a bedroom trash can. The dryer had a huge load of laundry that was half dry and slightly sour. Hair in the tubs.
These items are not the norm for the property, we must have come on a bad weekend!

Easy to access Northstart resort.

Nice place to stay, we really enjoyed it!

We recently stayed here with my family and another family. We each had 2 kids. We had a wonderful visit and the house worked out well for our trip. Upon checkin we found the house to be clean and had plenty of extras that were appreciate, such as tin foil, Saran Wrap, dishwasher detergent, etc. The layout allowed each family to have their separate sleeping space where noises didn't travel - great since all of our kids are young. One family stayed downstairs and the other family stayed upstairs. The pocket doors throughout the house were perfect for keeping noise to a minimum and allowing the adults to have some fun after the kids went to bed.

We were fortunate to have 30+ inches of snow while we were there and we were thrilled to see that the home provided wood for the wood burning stove which kept the house super toasty and provided a nice ambience, sleds and shovels. The neighborhood did an amazing job at plowing the streets and the driveway.

The one thing we were surprised by was the garage, we thought it was a two car garage (which we were excited about given the weather), but unfortunately only one car was able to fit given all of the patio furniture that was being stored in the garage. The home is on the older side, but everything was functional and met our needs for the weekend - couldn't beat it for the price.

We highly enjoyed our stay! House is beautiful and clean
Eliliwe R. Jul 2018
Our family had a blast in Truckee. Donner lake was super close as well as Safeway. Lake Tahoe was gorgeous and although it was quite a while away, this home was beautiful. Thanks for letting our family make great memories in your home
Ramon N R. Jul 2018
The peace and tranquility of the region and a feeling of getting back to nature. The Cabin was large and comfy, and very near the Truckee river and Lake Tahoe, at the same time we could go south into Reno and enjoy the Casino life and shows.

We had a great stay at this home.

The entire family enjoyed the stay
Jonelle B. Oct 2017
Great house for our group of 12! Plenty of space for everyone!
Joaquin T. Aug 2017
House sleeps 11-12 comfortably however the home appears older. Outdated TVs, rugs and furniture smell musty. Trash was left behind by previous tenants so this contributed to the foul smell. It gets really hot during the summer so be prepared to sleep with doors and small windows open. Electric fans are available however they are extremely dusty.
Justin G. Feb 2017
Perfect for group ski trips to Squaw or Northstar. The house is well laid out and has plenty of space for everyone to gather together. The decor is slightly dated, but there is a nice upgraded gas burner and plenty of cookware for gourmet meals. Plenty of heat for the house and showers, as well as room for 2 medium sized cars in the garage. Four wheel drive or chains definitely required for access in the winter. Would stay here again.
Andrew L. Feb 2017
Comfortable home for 4 adults and 4 kids. The rooms were large enough with ample bathrooms. Location is very good. And thank goodness snow plowing service showed up!

As we enjoyed our stay and hope to return, we have a few suggestions below.

While we do not expect spices or other basic kitchen items, in the many years we've stayed in VRBO and vacasa, we were amazed and disappointed that the cupboards were absolutely bare. Not even any salt. All knives need a lot of sharpening. If you're serious about cooking I recommend you bring your knives, frying pan and spices. The teflon in wok is all scratched. Not safe.

Just a little upgrade in entertainment so guests can use wifi for TV instead of just the ancient cable interface would be great.
Haifeng J. Feb 2017
The house holds four families of us, totally 8 adults and 6 kids comfortably. It has four bed rooms and a nook. Plenty of quilts and bed sheets.

Will come back
Lauren T. Nov 2016
Great house, cozy living room and lots of sleeping space. Excellent location in Tahoe Donner area close to restaurants, skiing, and about 30 minutes from the lake. Also lots of great trails out the door. Home is wonderful and would definitely stay again!
David M. Aug 2016
Very large & spacious, room for a big group. Interior very functional and well supplied. Outdoor deck is tired, patio furniture needs improvement.
Bill C. Aug 2016
This is a great house to stay in, you'll have a a good time. We sure did!
Gary G. Jul 2016
The house needs updating. The refrigerators were broken and the screen doors were broken and kept falling off the track. No hangars, bath mats or tissues. Vacassa was great in attending to the problems and took care of all the issues -- even during the 4th of July weekend.
Felizia N. Feb 2016
We had an awesome time at the Sitzmark House! It fit our 3 families, including kids, perfectly! The loft space was great for the kids to hang out and each of the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. Overall, the house was very clean, cozy, great for just hanging out, and close to many of the big ski resorts.

We will definitely stay here again! Thank you!
Elizabeth C. Jan 2016
We had a great time at this location. Large family home with lots of sleeping space and inside games/toys. Plenty of blankets, sheets silverware and plates. The surrounding area is great for snow play. We would totally stay here again.
Jobelle M. Nov 2015
It is our first time to rent a home for a 2-night stay and we were very pleased with how clean the house was as soon as we entered. The surroundings are very nice if you have children playing in the snow. I will definitely stay in this house for future vacations and will recommend this place as well.
Jack J. Nov 2015
We felt right at home in this large Truckee house. It was decorated for the holiday season, which was cheerful and homey. It had everything we needed for cooking and hanging out. There was plenty of room for everyone to hang out. We loved the warmth of the pot belly stove. One of the best features was the amazing view, set among the trees - especially with the snowfall. We had a fun trip to the Rec Center as well. We would definitely stay again.
Ronald A. Sep 2015
Five senior hikers on an annual hiking trip...tough group to please, but Vacasa & the Zitzmark home pulled it off! The home was very well located, it was extremely clean, well furnished & well equipped. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided, except someone to cook our dinners. The home was very comfortable for all of us, including a couple of 6'-2" guys. We loved the outdoor wood deck, where we spent our post-hiking late afternoons enjoying the towering pines, the great weather & the quiet surroundings. Thanks to Vacasa & the home owner for helping make our hiking week in Lake Tahoe a roaring success! 5-Stars!
