Tahoe Donner house description

Great Family Home in Truckee. Private 2,000 square feet home with 3 Bedroom, 2.5 baths. Truckee is a great place to vacation at all times of the year.

Whether your plans are for a winter getaway for skiing or snow play, or a summer retreat, we are close to all of it. We are in close proximity to skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, Maybe you just want to be around home and have a nice fire, our home is inviting for you.

Fine craftmanship is carried throughout our home utilizing the best of natural woods and knotty pine accents. We have recently upgraded the flooring utilizing travertine in the bathrooms and slate in the entry ways and landing areas.

Our home is fully turnkey with everything needed to make your stay enjoyable. Unlike other rental homes, we provide all linens and bedding, have our own brand new washer and dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. We have two outdoor decks, including a very large one ideal for summer outdoor entertaining.

In addition, we have added several flat screen TV's with digital cable and also have wireless internet available for our guests.

Tahoe Donner is surrounded with fragrant pine, local wildlife, improved trails; hiking, jogging, mountainbike adventure. Close to all sumptuous restaurants, tennis, golf, horseback riding, concerts, fishing very nearby!

Our renters are able to use Tahoe Donner's amenities including golf, tennis, equestrian center and swimming. Trout Creek recreation center includes the latest in cardio equipment, weights, sauna, steam room, and outdoor spa.

Our home is tastefully decorated which will make you feel right at home. It is equally fun to relax, read a good book, play games as a family or as couples. Get close with someone special and build a nice fire in the wood burning stove (firewood supplied).

Enjoy sitting outside with gorgeous mountain views on either of our two outdoor decks. We recently expanded the back deck providing an outdoor entertaining area for dining, lounging, or parties.

Whether you decide to stay close to home or enjoy the surrounding areas, you will enjoy your stay and want to come back and repeat your stay again later in the season or the next year. Many of our renters come back regularly.

In either case, you will have a memorable stay.

Everything is here for your next mountain getaway. The only thing missing is you.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1995

                          About the owner: I grew up in Santa Clara Valley when there were alot less people and there was a lively agricultural orientation. I still live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have watched orchards give way to Silicon Valley. I love the innovation and energy here. I enjoy all kinds of sports, but enjoy golfing the most. I work out regularly which includes cardio and weight training. I am a business owner and also have a rental property in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, which I also advertise through VRBO. The listing number is 328460. I enjoy renting our place and meeting people who rent from me. It makes me feel good that many of our renters come back consistently. I have been renting my home in Lake Tahoe (Truckee) for over 10 years. I take alot of care to ensure each renter feels at home and offer the kind of amenities that you will want. I have an excellent property manager who has a very capable staff. We work hard to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                          We looked at many homes in the Lake Tahoe area before settling on our home in the Tahoe Donner area in Truckee. It is a great break from the pace in Silicon Valley. I like Tahoe Donner for the many amenities it has. It has a wonderful mountain setting yet is close to Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake, skiing, golf. You can read more about the amenities of Tahoe Donner on our listing. Our home is like a home away from home. There is lots to do in the Tahoe Basin. There are restaurants that range from very casual to fine dining. There are wonderful views and the sky is lit with stars that are very visible away from city lights. I wanted a place that wasn't too far and a place where I could bring my family and friends. I love everything about the area. I find that no matter how short my stays there, it always seems like I have been gone for a while as I unwind.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Tahoe Donner offers many amenities including golf, tennis, a fitness center, multiple pools, an equestrian center, hiking trails, excellent cross country trails, a lodge that offers nice dining options along with a comfortable bar to name a few. These amenities are available not only to me and my guests, but also to my renters. We have continued to upgrade and update our home to make it current. We have made many improvements in the last year, including new flooring in many of the rooms, new HDTV's, bedding, and an expanded back deck. There is plenty of room for a large family or a couple of families to stay without feeling you are on top of each other.
