              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: John and I got married in 1989 and have enjoyed the blessings of so much happiness. Our family was completed when our son was born in 1993 and our daughter was born in 1996. As a family we enjoy spending quality time together playing and relaxing in the Tahoe Area. We are open to swap our vacation home for your vacation home!

              Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
              Our family was looking to slow down the fast paced life of a family of 4 with two teenagers. We found Tahoe Donner had something for all of us. We love the winter with skiing, playing in the snow and relaxing by the fire. The summer is also great with so many activities to choose from. We love to boat, hike, play tennis, golf and relax by the lake. Tahoe Donner has multiple amenities that can be enjoyed year round, thus we chose this as our second home. We plan to spend years making memories that will last a lifetime.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Located off Highway I-80, the property is approximately 35 miles from the Tahoe-Reno International Airport; 100 miles East of Sacramento Airport off Highway 80 and 200 miles East of San Francisco.
