Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife and I love being in the mountains to get away from our hectic lifestyles in the SF Bay. We both love to snowboard and decided to purchase in Tahoe to bring that experience to our young daughter as she grows up. Tahoe is our home away from home and we have been owners for a few years in Tahoe after many years of annual visits. During the winter we enjoy sharing our little oasis with like-minded friends in the ski lease and share it with others during the summer months. We're confident you'll love staying here year after year!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
Truckee is one of the best choice for year-round recreation on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The central location and amenities are equidistant to virtually everything in Tahoe, makes Tahoe Donner the best location for our family and your visit to Lake Tahoe.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Summer rentals include guest discount privileges to all Tahoe Donner amenities - including discount golf at the award-winning golf course.
