About Emma and Neil

Originally from the UK, we have been in the US for 15 years, where our 2 kids and 2 dogs were born.

Emma and Neil purchased this house in 2014

Why Emma and Neil chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We love Lake Tahoe, winter and summer. We chose this property because it is perfect for 2 families - the layout means that 2 families can stay together without feeling on top of one another. The 2 masters are both en-suite and at different "ends" of the house, with the 2 "childrens" bedrooms in between. Please note that this is a pet friendly house, and while we provide a thorough cleaning in between guests, it is probably not suitable for guests with pet allergies.

What makes this house unique

Having the house back onto trails is perfect for us, as we like to walk and hike, and this house allows us to be out the door and hiking in minutes. The extensive decking, fire-pit and outside seating are perfect for relaxing in the long summer evenings.

Comfortable home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting this home. It was perfect for our grandchildren ages 6 and 3. We enjoyed the pool, hiking, and beach, as well as miniature golf in Kings Beach. Hope to come back another time.

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time at the property. The house is really well-laid out, every bedroom is private and spacious. The remodel seems recent and was done very nicely. Tall ceilings and big windows throughout. The home backs up onto some open space where our kids could go sledding and build snowmen. It was perfect.

The owners were very responsive to our needs. We had a great time and would return again.

Well located and maintained rental option!

  • 4 of 5

This home accommodates people very easily. The great room and kitchen are large and allow for lots of seating and manpower in the kitchen. Everything is very comfortable and the house is well stocked for arrival. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Lovely home in great location...a little cold though.

  • 4 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our group which was comprised of 2 couples, a young daughter, and 2 dogs. The home itself has a nice open floor plan for the common areas and the location is great. With easy access to Truckee and nearby ski resorts like Alpine, Squaw, and Northstar you're never far away from activities (although this season is super-busy with all the snow-starved Californians flocking to the resorts so leave early!). The only minor issue we had was that it was a bit cold in the bedrooms. We had to leave the doors open to keep the rooms warm while we slept. Luckily the beds came equipped with warm comforters that kept the chill at bay.

Owner's Response: Hi Nick, thanks for the feedback and glad you had a nice stay. We have just replaced the furnace in the house, as the previous one was rather old. We have been advised that this will improve the heating significantly throughout the home. Thanks!

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

Pros-Overall a very nice house on a quiet street. Pretty nicely updated. Close to everything. Two master bedrooms. Back deck overlooks open space and very relaxing. Fire pit a nice bonus. Large garage. Kitchen has everything you need. Single level.

Pets apparently allowed.

Cons- Beds not very comfortable.

Wifi doesn't work throughout entire house.

Kitchen and dining area very dark all day long.

The cons are minor and we would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Eric. We have added a WIFI extender and there is now WIFI in every part of the house and the back deck. We have also replaced the mattress and box spring in the queen master, as another guest shared that specific feedback. The house is in the woods, and so the natural light is lower in some parts of the house, however there is extensive lighting throughout the house.

Great Family Friendly House

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful getaway in this beautiful Donner house. We love to cook and the kitchen was fully stocked with equipment. The great location backs onto open space with beautiful vistas. The 2 master suite layout is great if you have 2 sets of adults. The place appears to have been recently remodeled and the decor was lovely.
