Swede Dreams is a luxury 4,000+ sq ft custom designed log home offering all modern amenities. Located on a verdant and flat half acre of wooded nature in the heart of Tahoe Donner, it's ideal for family reunions and large group gatherings


Completed in 2006 after 8 years of construction, Swede Dreams is a unique property perfectly suited for special events or large gatherings of family and friends. This custom designed, 6 bedroom, 4 bath luxury log home offers Scandinavian charm and all the modern amenities needed for the perfect Tahoe vacation during any season. Located in the exclusive Tahoe Donner association of North Lake Tahoe, Swede Dreams rests on a quiet half acre of flat, stream-fed, wooded forest that is perfect for families with older members or those with young children. This home provides immediate access to the scenic Nature Loop trail and backs up to a preserved wetland area that houses a family of active beavers and countless bird species and squirrel families. A private natural spring on the property bubbles up into a small pool before babbling into nearby Trout Creek and ensures that even when other parts of Tahoe are dry and dusty, this property will sprout flowers, offers streams for kids to play in and attract wildlife of all sorts.

We bought Swede Dreams in November 2013 and completed a meaningful upgrade of the property since then. All kitchen appliances were updated, new kitchen counters were installed, and all new furnishings (including beds and bedding) were purchased. We also put a large hot tub on the back deck overlooking the preserved wetlands. For those who need to be in touch even during vacation time, we installed high speed WiFi (up to 50Mbps) and a roof-based cell phone booster which now provides reliable reception. We have DirecTV connected to four flat screen TVs (three bedrooms plus the Great Room) and have a full collection of DVDs on site in addition to the option of Netflix.

Swede Dreams was designed with both entertaining and children in mind. The 4,000+ square feet of living space is spread over the main floor and an upper floor whose separate sleeping areas are connected by a dramatic elevated catwalk overlooking the Great Room. Five bedrooms and three full baths are located on the upper level in three distinct wings. The south wing of the upper level holds a master bedroom with its own gas fireplace and another room immediately adjacent. In the north wing, there is a second master with a neighboring bunked bedroom, both of which open into a common bonus room alcove (essentially a 7th bedroom) designed to hold and entertain kids in a separate living space during early mornings or after hours when adults might gather downstairs. The upper level also has a bedroom on the west wing with its own deck and bathroom, 50'' flat screen TV and a delightful reading loft outside its door. On the main level is a final bedroom with its own bathroom—great for those who may have trouble getting up or down stairs. Older guests will appreciate that the front entrance, garage and entire main floor can be accessed with no more than one step up or down.

Since a good night's sleep after a long day on the slopes or hiking trails can separate a great vacation from a painful memory, we take sleeping quite seriously. Swede Dreams very comfortably sleeps 16 people in beds. Because we have never met someone who enjoyed sleeping on a pull-out sofa, all our beds are ‘real’. Our Master Bedrooms are outfitted with the same King sized beds used at the Ritz Hotel in SF (we called and asked them because we loved their beds!), and all our queen beds are of similar quality. All beds have been outfitted with luxury linens and duvets..and more than a few guests have commented that they have never slept better than they did at Swede Dreams!

With 9 separate zones of in-floor, radiant heat throughout the house, our guests should be able to find and maintain the perfect temperature without the noise, dryness and constant disruption that come from forced air heating. Our driveway is also heated hydronically, so nobody will need to worry about slipping when arriving at night or leaving for the slopes early morning. Perhaps more importantly, after a big dump, nobody will need to shovel his or her way out before heading up!

For the cautious traveler, Swede Dreams is equipped with a centrally monitored alarm system whose access code can be set remotely by the owner and customized for a given visitor. We also have integrated smoke and CO alarms throughout the house.

Outside deck with hot tub, seating area for 8+ and BBQ in summer

We are 40 minutes away from the airport and gambling of Reno, Nevada. We are 25 minutes from Lake Tahoe.

Swede Dreams is rented as a whole house so guests will always have full access to the house.

We will always be reachable during guest stays. We live in San Francisco and employ a handyman whose contact information will be made available for any emergency situations.

Our home is part of the Tahoe Donner HOA ((URL HIDDEN) and our guests have full access to all activities and services listed, including golf, tennis, swimming, equestrian, private beach access, hiking, etc. Truckee is a short one mile drive down the road and offers extensive shopping options, restaurants and nightlife.

You will need a car to get to Tahoe Donner, but once there it's pretty easy to walk to most of the activities of interest (golf, tennis, swimming, etc.) on a very nice and flat nature trail.

We rent Swede Dreams only a few times a year and do not look to maximize usage or income from the home. Rather, we like the idea of having a few good groups (typically family reunions or small group gatherings) enjoying the house when we are not using it. So we ask guests to review our standard rental policy and execute that contract prior to final commitment.

Dostupno gostima

Guests will have access to all parts of the house since the whole house is rented at once. [Basement access is restricted, but nobody needs to go the basement anyway:) ]

Swede Dreams is NOT a party house. We do not allow smoking of any sort on the property and ask that the primary renter be over 30 years. We also do not allow more than 10 people unrelated to the primary renter to occupy the house at any time without prior permission. Again, we're looking for family reunion type of gatherings or small groups looking for a great home base while they enjoy the many amenities Tahoe has to offer...not a big group looking for a large place to party.

Great place for a family get together. We had 13 people and were easily able to sleep everyone comfortably. Great house for young children as well. We had 8 kids under the age of 10 (including an infant) and the house was perfect for the group. Darius was a great host!

This home is wonderful. It's in an excellent location close to everything you'd want to do around Truckee but also feels secluded when you're there for the perfect mountain getaway. The home is meticulously maintained with everything from the linens to the kitchen appliances being high end. I'd highly recommend Swede Dreams to anyone looking for a luxury weekend getaway for a large group or family.

The house matches exactly what is described and the host was very caring about our stay, providing info before departure and also during stay. Had a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.

Darius and Swede Dreams exceeded our expectations in every way! Darius was great to work with on the reservation - quick on replies, highly responsive and very helpful while planning our trip. Swede Dreams is a beautiful, well appointed log cabin--with everything from 6BR size to heated floors, hot tub, place settings & even Moscow Mule mugs... The interior was beautiful; the logs on the walls, stairways and rafters were impressive; and the layout was absolutely perfect for our two-family gathering. We used both downstairs fireplaces, had big family breakfasts and dinners, and slept very well (beds were fantastic). The location within the neighborhood is great--picturesque, beautiful and natural setting... quiet and nestled in the trees with a winding brook out in the back... also convenient to the market... and Tahoe Donner is close to Northstar, Squaw & Alpine. Overall a really wonderful trip at a beautiful cabin. Hope to make it back soon!
