Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Gayle and son out for a sunny day of riding at Mammoth.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
The reason we chose this location is I love how close everything is! Markets, restaurants, are minutes away. Donner Lake is gorgeous and only a five-minute drive from our home. Several ski resorts are within a 20 minute drive or less. I lived in the Eastern Sierra for eight years and I am not crazy about driving around during snow storms. I looked at property closer to Lake Tahoe, but when I thought about all the extra driving and traffic, I decided I would rather spend less time on the road. I love the amenities at Tahoe Donner. And a big plus is how many ski resorts are easier to get to without having the nightmare of driving around Lake Tahoe just to get to a resort.
