Property description

This magnificent mountain home is beautifully designed and decorated for large families with friends. Nestled in a pine grove, it also backs up to a greenbelt for both serenity and privacy.
Featuring 4 Bedrooms (Master and Guest Master, additional Queen BR and a kids' bedroom with 4 XL twin beds), a loft with a queen futon and 3 1/2 baths, this home appeals to the most discerning traveler with a penchant for comfort and entertainment at a 'notch' above the rest. The kids' bedroom has two nightstands with drawers as well as a 5 drawer bureau and multiple racks for hanging (no closet)....it also has a wall mounted flat panel TV with Blu Ray DVD and a Hand Shuffleboard table for added fun. At nearly 400 sq. feet, this room is the perfect getaway for the kids or for added sleeping on adult only weekends. All bedrooms are beautifully appointed in every way, from linens to comforters, it is all taken care of. Bath towels and hair dryers are provided for ease as well.....just settle in and relax! Tumbled marble and travertine are used in the baths and the master bath features a Jetted tub with views of the forest beyond.
The great room has vaulted ceilings, a magnificent two story granite Extraordinaire fireplace and windows facing the forestry beyond. There is a dining area with a table that seats 8-10 with 3 additional barstools at the kitchen counter. Sliding doors open out to the 2nd story deck, perfect for BBQing and outdoor entertainment. Cherry hardwood floors and kitchen cabinets, granite countertops and stainless appliances set the tone for this perfect entertainment space. The kitchen has a great collection of quality glassware, plates, cookware and utensils (including a second set of Marilyn Mason 'bear' dinner plates). Everything is provided to make your stay both enjoyable and magnificent! Beautifully landscaped backyard (completed in September, 2013) includes gas fire pit and 16 foot diameter stone patio with gorgeous seating for 6. Rolling lawn and horseshoe pit will make your time outside truly unparalleled.

We have a neighbor's VRBO listing right next door for larger family getaways.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Mike and I have loved this 2nd home and all time spent in it. Our two boys have grown to love the summer as much as the winter with all that the locale has to offer. We have been married for 22 years and spend our time in the Bay Area, Tahoe and the East Coast, where I am from. Mike works in the bond / securities industry and is a graduate of Chico University with an MBA from St. Mary's. I am now retired, raising our 2 boys and attended Villanova University before moving to California in 1987.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
We love all the amenities of Tahoe Donner, the proximity to the Freeway and the distance from our primary residence. Avid skiers, golfers and outdoorsmen, we love the mountain life and the change of pace from the Bay ARea. Donner is just 2 1/2 hours from home and offers so much as a community. The value was also good, in our opinion.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This home is well located in lower Tahoe Donner, which is more accessible to Truckee and the downtown area. It is also located close to both the rec center, golf course (TD and Coyote Moon) and the dining facilities of Tahoe Donner. The privacy of a home backing to a greenbelt is something we value greatly. We have wonderful neighbors on one side and a vacant lot on the other....great Privacy all around. At only 8 years old, the home is also in great condition with more modern amenities throughout. It is beautifully decorated with no details left undone.
