Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Sweeping views of the High Sierra await you from our luxurious mountain chalet, Tahoe Summit Chalet.

The discriminating traveler will appreciate the attention to detail and luxury appointments in this chalet: extensive knotty alder woodwork, 3 stone fireplaces, gourmet kitchen, 3 large decks, travertine marble bathrooms with heated floors, hot tub, wireless high-speed internet, flat screen TVs, and more. The rooms are exceptionally bright and sunny, and thanks to our mountain top location, you will enjoy magnificent sunrise and sunset views.

Looking for even more space? We have another beautiful chalet for rent right next door. Plan your family reunion, holiday, or anniversary party in North Lake Tahoe this year. Rent both properties to sleep 20+ people - almost under the same roof. See VRBO listing #31151 for information on Pinnacle Chalet.

Located in Tahoe Donner, a residential community in Truckee, Tahoe Summit Chalet is within 5 minutes of superb Tahoe Donner amenities: cross-country ski center; downhill ski resort; 2 recreation centers with fitness center, swimming pools, hot tubs; sledding hill; golf course; driving range; playgrounds; hiking trails; mountain bike trails; equestrian center; tennis center; fine and casual dining at the Lodge. The private beach, clubhouse, and boat launch on Donner Lake are just a few additional minutes drive.

Near the world class ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, and Royal Gorge (cross-country), you can be on your skis in 20 – 30 minutes. Our chalet is 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe, 40 minutes from the Reno Airport, and 3 hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. Located well back on a quiet street, our chalet affords privacy and relaxation.

The open floor plan is ideal for special gatherings. Our gourmet kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and is well equipped for those who love to cook (professional cookware, 2 ovens.) In the warmer months, you can barbecue and eat outdoors on the patios.

About Jennifer Heinemann

We are a family with 4 kids from the San Francisco Bay Area. We love all the great outdoor activities Lake Tahoe has to offer from cycling and swimming in the summer to downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Jennifer Heinemann purchased this house in 2007

Why Jennifer Heinemann chose Truckee

We wanted a quiet and relaxing getaway where we could spend vacation time with family and friends, yet a place that was convenient to shopping and recreational activities.

What makes this house unique

We loved this location - perched up at the high point of this area with spectacular, panoramic views in all directions. We decided to build our dream vacation home here and are excited to share it with you.

Can't find a better place than this

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The pictures don't quite capture how nice the place is. When you walk in you are amazed at how much space there is and overwhelmed by the views. Everything was clean and in great condition, from the kitchen to the hot tub. Highly recommend! We will rent again.

Fabulous For Families

  • 5 of 5

This is probably one of the best houses we have stayed in Tahoe to date. A group of friends plus kids rented this house and the house next door. Everything was in impeccable condition and it was super family friendly with its split level layout. The house has amazing views and was perfect for a "summer" weekend in what should have been winter. The house is walking distance to great hiking trails (aka cross country skiing and downhill skiing with no snow) and a short drive to a bunch of playgrounds. If you choose to stay and hang out the house, both decks offer great views, the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking at home and there is a closet full of games. All in all great rental property, we will totally be back. Thank you!

Wonderful Tahoe vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This review is for the two side-by-side houses...

We just finished another great weekend in Tahoe, despite the fact that there was no snow! Our group of friends has been doing an annual Tahoe weekend for about 10 years now, so we've seen a lot of houses. This pair of houses was the best we've seen and we're hoping to book it every year (or at least until one of us hits the jackpot and buys a 10-bedroom estate in Truckee!). As our group has transitioned from young married couples to families of 4, it's become increasingly difficult to find a house that can accommodate all of us. This side-by-side arrangement was perfect: 8 bedrooms for 8 families. In addition, the houses were both in immaculate condition and the kitchens were well stocked with nice cookware and cooking tools, plenty of dishware and utensils, toys and games for the kids, comfortable beds and linens, and killer views. The owner was also easy to work with over email. I highly recommend this house (unless you want it for the same weekend that we want it!).

Amazing Mountain Home with Beautiful 360° Views

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. It has just about everything you could ask for in a mountain getaway: gorgeous 360° views, tons of space for sleeping and hanging out, a great sound system, 3 patios (one with a hot tub), and easy access to downtown Truckee. It's always clean, nicely decorated, and set up nicely for families and groups.

I've been booking the side-by-side chalets for group ski trips the last 5 years and couldn't be happier. Jennifer is responsive and a delight to coordinate with. The group always raves about how perfect the houses are for skiing, relaxing, cooking, dining, and hanging out as a group. I look forward to many more years visiting Jennifer's chalet.

Fantastic views, great retreat for friends and families

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and its comforts - it's a great place to come together with friends and/or families. The kitchen, dining room and living area are all in one huge open space with two decks on each side, with great views. (there is another deck on the ground floor with a hot tub as well) It has an open spacious air - so fun for everyone to hang out while making breakfast, lunch, dinner...

The kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary supplies and beyond. The bedrooms are super comfortable. We were three families and it comfortably sleeps up to 14 people I think.

needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

While this home had the most wonderful views out of every window, and was really spectacular, it needed some maintenance, and TLC. The carpeting needs to be replaced (it was very dirty) , the windows washed, and the kitchen needs to have a thorough cleaning. We would go back again if we were assured that these things were done.

Owner's Response: I am sorry our home did not live up to your expectations. I wish you had contacted us during your week stay, so we could have addressed these concerns. We strive to keep our home in top condition, and we have the carpets professionally cleaned and windows professionally washed on a regular basis - much more often than people would in their own homes. We purchased the highest quality carpet available, and it will last for many more years. We stay in this home ourselves - unannounced - many times throughout the year and have always found the kitchen to be spotless. We did transition housekeepers the week prior to your stay, so perhaps something was missed at that time. However, I can assure you the housekeeper is thorough and professional, and she cleans to a very high standard. Best regards, Jennifer
