Property description

Enjoy the peace and quiet of our Tahoe Donner home.

Our home is located on a large (3/4 acre) wooded lot. It is very private as it is about 125 ft from the street and has open space land on 2 sides. The only close neighbor is about 50 ft away.

The home is cozy sized and is best suited for up to 6 or 7 people. The dining table seats 6.

Tahoe Donner has many private recreational facilities that are accessible on a daily fee basis with the included guest cards. Other Truckee amenities are nearby and Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Sugar Bowl ski areas are only 15-20 min away. This is the best driving location to the SF Bay area as it is located just minutes off I80 from the first Truckee exit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a family of three that enjoys many weekends at our Tahoe Donner home. The house is like our home not a typical rental house. We enjoy the quiet area and friendly neighbors. Our teenage child enjoys the woods and sledding in the front yard in the winter. We look forward to renting to families or those that are seeking a quiet relaxing weekend. This is not a party house!!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
We really enjoy the woods and semi-secluded setting for this pleasant vacation home. It also is easy access especially for winter travel as it is close to I80 via well plowed roads. For pilots, Truckee airport (TRK) is well maintained even in winter with a 7000' preferred runway.
