About Christine Arnesen

We bought this cabin to enjoy the mountain experience. We are both avid skiers and we wanted to have a place for our son to learn to ski and enjoy the outdoors as much as we do. Over the last 27 years, we have enjoyed the many amenities of Tahoe Donner including golfing, swimming, hiking and skiing.

Christine Arnesen purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Christine Arnesen chose Truckee

Location is central to many of the activities we love and is a convenient three hour drive from our home in the Bay Area.

Great kitchen good location cozy

  • 5 of 5

Property is very conveniently located in Tahoe Donner community in Truckee, within minutes drive to sports complex and grocery stores or restaurants. Access to Northstar, Squaw Valley or Soda Spring within 30 minutes drive. Kitchen was fully equipped (pots, pans, utensils, knives) and staples (butter, oil, salt and pepper) available. House was clean. Plenty of firewood available (thank you). We appreciate quick response from Christine to help us connect to WIFI (problem solved). I would rent there again.

Comfortable mountain home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. It's very comfortable and

in a nice quiet area. The cute little neighbor girls, and their dog, were a

prize as well. Friendly people.

Your kitchen has everything we needed as well as enough knives for

the Culinary Academy! The counter tops are beautiful and all the new dishes are a nice touch. The photos don't do it justice.

All of the beds are comfortable especially the new king.

My wife and I started out the week alone then our son and his wife

joined us. For the weekend our other son and his girlfriend came. They

stayed downstairs.

Thanks for the late check-out, although we didn't need it. We

actually woke up early enough to leave by noon. It was nice knowing that if

we had slept late we didn't have to rush. One of the homes we looked at was

going to charge us $35 an hour if we stayed past 11 am.

The extra blankets were appreciated and all the pillows as well.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

This cabin was the perfec...

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect size for two families of

four. The kids camped out downstairs - we were

able to get the trundle bed out with the sofa bed

pulled out, and the parents each had their own

spacious room upstairs. The downstairs is a bit

cold, so the space heater was essential. Rates are

lower than most comparable places. We were very

happy with our experience.
