Tahoe Donner house description

This charming northwoods-styled home is fully furnished and decorated with a mountain lodge theme. Our home can sleep up to eighteen people and is perfect for large family gatherings, family reunions, multi-family get-togethers or large groups. It is located on a quiet private street. This is a three level home that features a large great room and master bedroom, both with 22 foot vaulted ceilings. The sleeping areas include five bedrooms plus a loft. The home has three and a half baths and includes a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen with knotty pine cabinets has upgraded stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. There are three decks, two of which overlook a greenbelt with trees, a meadow and a seasonal stream behind the house. This is a perfect spot to enjoy the summer wildflowers and songbirds or stroll on the wooded path. In the winter the greenbelt draws the adventurous for sledding or snowshoeing.

You’ll enjoy socializing by the large bay of 20 foot high windows in the expansive great room with a gas thermostatically-controlled fireplace. The comfortable seating encourages relaxation while visiting with family and friends. Kids of all ages will enjoy the family game room to play board games, watch TV or shoot a game of pool.

The home is located in North Lake Tahoe’s historic town of Truckee, California in the exclusive ‘Tahoe Donner” resort area. It is close to year-round outdoor and leisure activities. World-class skiing is within 15-20 minutes including Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Boreal and Sugar Bowl ski areas. Our local Tahoe Donner Ski Area is a mile away for fun family-friendly skiing. Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski facility with its extensive trail system is just a five minute drive from the home. Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake are close by for their many associated water and beach activities. Coyote Moon and Tahoe Donner Golf courses are within a five minute drive. Trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding are all nearby. Reno casinos, shopping, and night life are thirty minutes from our Tahoe Donner home.
