Property description

Behind the street-side flat driveway and garage (great in winter) you'll enter the bright house from the western front deck (there is another deck off the back of the house which gets great morning light). The environmentally friendly pellet stove and central gas heat will warm you in the cold months, while the house stays cool naturally all summer long.

The loft covers over half the floor plan, allowing for good air flow and a feeling of spaciousness. Downstairs the living room, dining room and kitchen are open to each other. The 2 entrance-level bedrooms face south and accommodate up to 6 people. There is a Master Bedroom (west) with a queen bed, and a Family Bedroom (east) with a double bed and twin bunk. You can expand upstairs into the Loft which can also accommodate up to 6 with a twin bunk, double futon, queen futon (on the floor) and extra twin mattress (on the floor).

You’ll feel connected to your friends and family in the warm and social atmosphere of the house’s layout. Whether you’re cooking, relaxing on the couch, watching a movie (many old VHS videos are available at the house, or bring your own DVDs), reading (many books are available to peruse during your stay), eating, or stretching after a long day out on the mountain, you’ll have the space to do it. If quiet privacy is what you’re after, simply hide away.

The house is easy to get to even in bad weather - it is on Northwoods BLVD, the main Tahoe Donner road, which gets plowed well, and since it is at the far end of the road’s loop, there is little traffic. Also, the driveway and front deck are plowed for you on heavy snow days, so you can get in and out of the property without hassle.

Well-stocked but not excessive, you’ll find what you need to be comfortable, relax, and enjoy your vacation no matter what the season. We are looking forward to working with you.

Ama Greenrose, Mgr.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Carol lives in New York and is an avid skier who has not missed a season for 55 years. Lori lives in Anchorage, AK and skis (downhill and cross-country), boards, snow shoes, hikes and backpacks. They bought this lovely vacation home to have a 'home base' in the Sierra Nevada Mountains after Carol bought a condo in Park City, Utah before the Olympics. They love traveling to new areas around the country and world, but coming back to the same place year after year has it's advantages. Come visit our favorite year-round vacation spots and find out why!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
I (Lori) found myself visiting Tahoe Donner year after year, renting different houses with groups of friends. When the idea struck to invest in a property, the answer to 'where?' was quite obvious. So I looked for a house that would accommodate a group of friends or a family, that had 2 bathrooms, was easy to access even in bad weather, and felt comfortable to hang out in. I think we found just the right place!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love taking advantage of the proximity to all of the ski areas. We decide everyday where the best snow and weather are, and we go there. Then, we head to the jacuzzi on our way back home for dinner... or maybe we eat at one of the awesome restaurants at the ski areas or around Truckee, Tahoe City or Kings Beach. As much as Winter in Tahoe is Fabulous!, Spring, Summer and Fall visits allow for hiking, biking, rock climbing, swimming, tennis, golf (I play mini, but there are several world class golf courses nearby), visiting the hot springs in Sierraville, exploring local history, boating and playing at the lakes (Donner and Tahoe). There is always heading to State Line or South Lake for a bit more excitement, and so much more it would take too long to add it all in here.
