                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: We are a mountain loving family that has recently relocated from the East Bay to the Folsom area. We love to enjoy all the outdoor activities that Tahoe has to offer. We have two kids that think of our place as their home away from home. We hope you enjoy yourself at our cabin as much as we do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                  Tahoe Donner has wonderful ammenities and is close to the historic downtown area of Truckee. Donner Lake is a terrific small lake that we enjoy and Lake Tahoe is a short 20 minute drive away. No need to sit in the Tahoe traffic to come to Chateau Chamonix!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a comfortable cabin that is on a quiet street halfway between the two Tahoe Donner recreation centers. Our place sits on a hill that is great for sledding, no need to drive to enjoy a quick sled down our hill!
