Property description

Beautiful 3BR house with views of mountains and pine forest, has vaulted beam ceilings and knotty pine interior, south facing windows and deck with private hot tub. Main living area has 'great room' layout with living, kitchen and dining area. Wood stove keeps the house toasty and there's a large supply of firewood stacked in the garage. Large master suite has vaulted ceilings with large picture windows with views of mountains and Northstar ski runs.

The master suite has a queen bed (for 2 persons). The second bedroom has a queen bed (for 2 persons) and a single bed. The third bedroom has a queen bed (for 2 persons). In addition there is a single bed located in an alcove off the master bedroom. Total sleeping capacity is 8 persons.

Close to all North Tahoe ski resorts (Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw Valley, and others). Guest passes included for access to Tahoe Donner Recreation Centers, with heated swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centers, and golf course. Guest passes also entitle you to discounts at Tahoe Donner ski resort.

Attached two car garage lets you drive in and enter the house from inside the garage, and NOT have snow on your car in the morning. Automatic driveway heating system keeps the driveway ice and snow free. The garage has a ski tuning workbench, with excellent lighting, hot & cold running water washbasin, and AC power, to keep your skis in top condition.

Hot tub seats 4 to 6 and is professionally maintained.

No Smoking, No Pets Policy: Rest assured this will be a clean, smoke free environment for our guests. The owner takes smoking and pet restrictions seriously. No smoking permitted within the premises under any circumstances. No pets permitted within the premises.

Equipped with the latest technology: The house has, first of all, high speed cable modem internet service and WIFI for free unlimited high speed internet access. It also has two flat screen LCD TVs, each with its own built in DVD player. And there's a Sony sound system with CD player and built in iPod docking station. Finally, there's excellent cell phone reception so your cell phones will work just fine (many homes in Tahoe Donner don't have cell phone coverage!).

Kid Friendly: The house has tons of toys for kids. There's an entire closet crammed with kid's games and toys. There are a bunch of kids' videos. And in the garage, there are lots of snow toys (saucers, sleds, toboggans, snowball making machine, etc.) for the kids to play with. Your kids will have a blast!

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THIS: We don't collect the cleaning charge up front. Your credit card will be billed for the cost of cleaning AFTER it has been performed. The rate is $40 per hour and the normal cleaning requires 3.5 hours, so you can expect a $140 cleaning charge if the house has been left in good condition and in accordance with the checkout instructions.
