About this listing

This sunny mountain home with oak detailing throughout has a quiet serene and comfortable feeling that enhances your vacation rest time. Relax on the hammock or curl up next to the fire after taking part in an endless list of summer and winter playtime activities. Three levels and 5 decks.

The space

Our Tahoe Dacha (Russian for a vacation home) provides a place to escape, rest, recharge, and play.
The house is bright and sunny, it is never too hot or too cold. It is a great place to just hand out, sleep late, enjoy the mountain air, and walk in the pine forest. Turns out the tap water is one of the purest in the entire country and it tastes great!

Guest access

Tahoe Donner is a premier destination, located in Nevada County's Tahoe Forest, with both winter and summer amenities. Our Dacha is located on a main neighborhood road, which means in winter, significantly easier access, even during snow storms.

Interaction with guests

The property is remotely managed by the owner, Larry.
A cleaning service will check the property before you arrive, and clean/inspect after your stay. The $400 security deposit will then be refunded. The cleaning service charge is $175.

Other things to note

Our Dacha is located within 20 to 40 minutes of Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alphine Valley, Sugar Bowl, and Homewood, ski resorts. Tahoe Donner ski area is a 15 minute walk from the house with a great program for children and beginners. South shore Lake Tahoe is 75 minutes away, with more skiing and Nevada Casinos.

Closer to home, the Tahoe Donner community has modern, great exercise, swimming, tennis, equestrian, day camp for kids, and private beach on Donner Lake.

Larrys dacha is wonderful. Spacious and suitable for large familys and group of friends. Clean and located in a charming spot. The kids enjoyed the play room with the soccer table and billiard table, puzzles and tabletop games. We will definitely come back.

We had a wonderful time at the dacha! Larry was a great host and answered all of our questions both before we got there and during our stay. The house itself is spacious and had everything we needed, including a BBQ and a coffee machine. Would come back!

Larry was extremely accommodating and helpful as we connected. It was a breeze getting settled in. The house itself was fantastic! The back deck was big enough to fit about 5 or 6 around a the table with room for the chef to grill. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep (especially with the extra air mattress) and the foosball & pool-table downstairs were a perfect supplement for any downtime we had during our stay. The location was great, with only a quick drive to Donner lake and Tahoe and a nice walk up the road to a park (we were lucky enough to see some live music there over the weekend). I would highly recommend staying here if you don't mind driving a few minutes out to the lakes and want a quite, clean and rustic location.

Larry User ProfileLarry is a superhost.

I love California and want to share that with others. Our homes have fond memories of amazing vacations our family has shared through the years. The kids are now adults with their own families and it is a good time to share our Dacha with others (Dacha means second home).

Tahoe has a wonderful winter and summer season. The outdoor activities are endless (i.e., ski resorts, fishing, snowshoeing, jet skiing, river rafting, and much more).

The Desert is a wonderful restorative place to relax, take in the sights and enjoy the never ending beautiful weather! We love both places and hope you will love them too!
