Tahoe Donner house description

This spacious Tahoe Donner mountain retreat is in a quiet golf course neighborhood with easy winter access. Beds include 5 queen beds, 3 twin beds (one is a bunk bed).

On the upper level are the Master Bedroom with queen log bed and a full bathroom, second bedroom with queen/twin bunk and 1 additional twin bed, Great Room with vaulted ceiling, wood burning pellet stove for coziness, a game table with 4 comfortable chairs for hours of play, and a TV with DVD & VHS player. Stereo with ipod dock(bring your ipod and listen to your favorite music) and CD player. There is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you'll need to prepare a gourmet meal, dining table that seats 6, plus an additional 4 at the game table and bar stools at the counter.

The large back deck off the Great Room has a gas barbecue, table and chairs with a serene backyard forest setting with stairs leading down to the backyard and lower deck. There is also a front deck off the kitchen.

Downstairs are 2 bedrooms, both with queen beds and a full bathroom. There is a wonderful large kids game room with flat screen TV and Nintendo 64 Game system and lots of games and large sectional couch. This can actually become a 5th bedroom with a sofa bed and has a closet. The covered outdoor deck off the game room has access to the backyard for great snow play!

The half acre lot is flat with beautiful trees surrounding the cabin, great sun on the decks, and very easy winter access with lots of parking. There is an attached 2 car garage and additional driveway parking.

Five minutes away are the Tahoe Donner Ski Hill, the excellent Lodge Restaurant at the Golf Course Club House, Recreation Center with full gym and much more, and the awesome sledding hill. There is a great little deli market down the street for coffee, newspaper and the essentials.

The Tahoe Donner Trout Creek Recreation Center offers hot tubs, large swimming pools, a separate adult only lap pool heated in winter, saunas, fitness center, classes and health spa. Book a massage appointment for ultimate relaxation. In the summer, for kids there is a baby pool, larger pool, huge grassy play area with play equipment, basketball and ping pong.

There is a another recreation area, the Northwoods Club House with a casual pizza restaurant with games, another pool and children's playground. There is an archery area and hiking trails from this location in the summer.

Tahoe Donner also has an outstanding Tennis Center and Golf Course. The golf course is beautiful and very reasonably priced. The golf clubhouse lodge is new and a great place to have a refreshment after a day of golf. The Tahoe Donner Ski Hill is close by the cabin and is terrific for everyone. It has a great ski school 'snowflakes ski school' for the young kids but if you want a private lesson to improve your skiing or boarding skills, you can't beat the prices and the instructors are friendly and very experienced.

There is a private beach club at Donner Lake, which is 3 miles away. The beach club is perfect for all ages. For the little ones, there is a nice sandy beach area roped off for hours of sandcastle building, wading into the shallow water, or fishing for crawdads in the rocks (a huge favorite for kids, where the fun is in the catching with improvised stick poles tied with string, hot dogs make good bait!). For older kids, there is a floating platform that they have to swim to and can hang out. There is a boat launch and dock. Tons of water toys to rent as well, from canoes and kayaks to windsurfers and sailboats. Jet skiis as well. There is a great BBQ area that you can bring your own food with picnic tables, or a snack shack where you can purchase lunch, drinks and treats.

The cabin rental includes 2 access cards for 4 guests each to access most amenities for $8 per person a day. These cards are also good for significant discounts at the golf course, TD Cross country and downhill and equestrian center. See the tahoe donner website for more information.

Major ski areas within 25 minutes include Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl and Alpine Meadows. The town of Truckee has unique shops, pubs and dining. We are happy to assist with suggestions!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We are an active family who enjoys skiing, sailing, running, hiking and all that the mountains have to offer. We found our perfect cabin five years ago. We looked for a few years for a cabin that would have the best location, easy winter access, and plenty of room for family and friends. We also wanted a separate room for the kids to hang out with their friends, which was important to them. When we are not enjoying it ourselves, we share it with others who love our mountain community as we do. Cheers! The Troxel Family
