Truckee is central to Everything Tahoe, and when you book with Tahoe Alpenglow Properties you get more than an entire home to yourself... you get the best in customer service, local advice, and even an after hours emergency line. The Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area is only a few minutes up the street, and this home is literally a 1 minute walk to Z Marketplace (across the street), and a 5 minute walk to Trout Creek Recreational Center (Gym/Pool/Hot Tub/Sauna), Tahoe Donner Driving Range, and Snow Play Area with a Tubing Hill during the Winter! There is more.. Tahoe Donner provides an Equestrian Center, Amazing Biking & Hiking trails, Pizza On The Hill, and my favorite restaurant in all of Truckee... The Lodge. All of this is accessible in less than a 5 minute drive, and that's just what Tahoe Donner itself has to offer! 

Historic Downtown Truckee & Donner Lake are a short 10 minute drive. Squaw Valley is 20 minutes away, while Lake Tahoe is 30 minutes away, both down HWY 89 which go to Tahoe City and the West Shore of Lake Tahoe on your way toward Emerald Bay. Northstar ski resort is 20 minutes away, down HWY 267 which goes to Kings Beach, while Sugar Bowl and Boreal are also 20 minutes away and accessible via HWY 80 toward Sacramento. The closet Casino is Crystal Bay Club (35 minutes away) just past Kings Beach which has great live music on weekends! We are even only 45 minutes away from Reno, Nevada, "The Biggest Little City". So.. let us help you plan an awesome vacation getaway in one of the most beautiful and adventurous destinations in California!

There is a Guest Welcome Binder in the home which is full of useful information, and your entire house will have been professionally cleaned before your arrival.

Principal and owner

We love staying at Pine Cone Place, especially in the "off season" of early November - the weather is gorgeous, there are NO tourists, its just us and the locals at the Trout Creek Rec Center. Its just heaven. Highly recommend Pine Cone Place and going when other folks are at home, diligently working!

Family Snowboarding Vacation

This trip was spectacular. Better than expected and being that we’d never stayed in this area before it was great of Chris the property manager to help navigate our stay. This property had a market within walking distance for any items we forgot or groceries and snacks. That was a great plus traveling with 6 kids between the ages of 20-10. Chris also recommended the restaurant just about 3 minute walk from the property. It was delicious and convenient for when we were tired from skiing and didn’t want to cook! It was snowing during our trip and the neighborhood was well groomed during our entire stay. The checkin was very easy. A binder of instructions and tips for the area. The house was very clean and plenty of towels. We all felt like we were at home. It’s just a warm friendly property. Everything we needed was provided. There’s many ski lodges close to the property. Truckee in general is a very sweet town. Thanks to the property owners for allowing us to stay here, and we’d definitely choose this property again if the chance arises.

A nice place to stay...

Pine Cone Place is a somewhat dated, but very adequate space in Tahoe Donner. It was well stocked and clean (with a giant TV!) and suited our needs very well. Chris was friendly and responsive. Will check it out again when we come for Christmas again in 2020!

Amazing stay!

We loved staying here! The place is well-stocked (kitchen and laundry especially!) and very well-maintained. Beautifully clean and organized when we arrived (not so much when we left, but that's our fault!). Comfy couch, great TV, great kitchen. Right across the street from a cutest little "general" store you'll ever go into (and make sure you patronize them! The owner's name is Lisa) and enjoy browsing. STAY HERE!

Wonderful Getaway Home !

We stayed during the labor day weekend of 2017. It is a beautiful place and well kept home with all possible amenities you can think of. What impressed us most is how well everything is organized in the home. It is very spacious and can easily accommodate 8 people. Accessibility is also great with easy walk to the nearby Deli and 'The Lodge'.

Great House, Great Location

We've been coming to Tahoe Donner for many years and this was the first time we were walking distance to Z Market and Trout Creek. Very helpful for last-minute forgotten milk, kids that want to go to the pool when you don't... and parents who want to slip out to the Lodge for a few hours. The house was just how we like it, not overdone as so many Donner homes are, clean, ample space, well-stocked and well-priced. We were there with 6 people and had more than enough room. Loved the back deck and the large yard... we ate all of our meals out there. We were there in the summer but the level driveway and close proximity to Northwoods would be a plus in winter. We will definitely rent this place again. Chris was on top of all details and everything was as described. Comfy beds, great linens and even had beach towels for all.

Comfort and convenience

Pine Cone Place is a perfect home for families and friends. We stayed there during the week of 4th of July 2017. The home is quick walking distance to the Z Marketplace and Trout Creek Rec Center. The flat driveway also makes year round parking, loading, and unloading a breeze! The open kitchen, dining, and living space are the perfect layout for spending time together. Our group consisted of 2 families with a a total of 4 adults and 3 children from ages 6-9. The room for the kids downstairs had great configuration of the beds to include a bunk with a twin on top and full on the bottom plus a trundle bed with two twin mattresses. The adults had great space as well with one queen bedroom downstairs and one king bedroom upstairs. There is great closet space in each of the bedrooms so you can hang clothes or keep suitcases out of your way. The other unique and special traits include a loft with a pool table that converts into a ping pong table and a fantastic back patio to enjoy that is shaded in the afternoon and evening...great for grilling and enjoying a glass of wine! We look forward to coming back very soon!

The cabin is just as described and even better than we expected

Added from another 3rd party site: The cabin is just as described and even better than we expected. It has everything that a family may need. VERY clean and comfortable! I was pleasantly surprised and RELIEVED to not have to clean before settling in. The neighbord is quiet and clean and back porch was semi-private with a nice surrounding of trees. The extra touches, night lights; hand soap at EVERY sink; all sizes of towels, including beach towels; pool and ping pong table; Barbeque pit; and discout passes for Rec Ctr were bonus! This was a very last minute booking, but Chris was quick to respond. Communication was fast and easy. Would definitely come back and recommend.

Very comfortable for our group of 6

Added from another 3rd party site: The cabin was just as described and pictured. It was very comfortable for our group of 6. It could have easily fit 8-10. It was a good home base for our get away to the mountains as I know it will be for you if you stay. The clubhouse and pools were a bonus as were the tennis courts and gym. I would recommend this cabin. Chris communicated clearly and made our stay great.

What a fabulous deal

Added from another 3rd party site: What a fabulous deal, and such wonderful attentive customer service! This was a last minute booking and Chris did an amazing job reaching out with all the information I needed. The place was great for us and our kids, it was pretty bare on the nick nacks, so I wasn't worried about the kids breaking things. We were there during the GOT season premier and Chris even helped us figure out the HBO Now account so we could watch it. The place had everything we needed to visit the beach, go hiking, all we needed was ourselves. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or community center, but my family had such a good time we want to come back and spend more time! Thanks guys!
