          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1986

          About the owner: Born and raised in Sacramento, I followed my daughter to Florida 7 years ago after I retired as a first grade teacher. We built the cabin with lots of attention to details. An expanded dinning room allows for 6 at the dinning table and 4 at the kitchen bar. This came in handy when our children were growing up with all of their friends and cousins who came up to ski, snowmobile and sled in the winter. The summer was time to bike ride, hike, swim, water ski, jet ski or kayak at Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. The bike trail that starts at River Ranch and goes all the way to Chamber's Landing! We would always stop at Sunnyside for lunch. Bring your own bikes or rent them in Tahoe City. The views are stunning! We built the upstairs so the kids would have plenty of room to play with a large bedroom, loft, and a half bath. Plenty of games, a wooden rocking horse, and a handmade doll house are sure to keep the kids busy. Our family has always enjoyed entertaining, so the kitchen is well stocked for everything you could possibly use including a Kitchen Aide mixer and several sets of dishes and table linens. The outdoor deck has a redwood table and seats 6 easily under an umbrella for shade. In the summer, I have always enjoyed working out in the yard. I have rented the cabin to the same Bay Area family for ski season for 6 years and I come back to spend part of the summer to escape the Florida heat. The Lake Tahoe area has perfect weather almost everyday. Cool mornings and mild days with big blue skies. Perfect get away for the week-end or a few weeks. Truckee and Donner Lake 4th of July has always been so much fun with a parade, live music, games and of course fireworks over the lake. Great fun with great friends and family...so many wonderful memories were made over the years. Why not make your now?

          Why the Owner Chose Donner Lake:
          Just a little over an hour from Sacramento....three hours from San Francisco, you can escape to the Sierras. The cabin is beautifully decorated with love. The kitchen, dinning room, and bathroom have new floors. The downstairs bathroom and kitchen have been remolded. There is a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with three sets of dishes, placemats, napkin rings, wine glasses......everything you need for a little dinner party! The kitchen table seats 6 and the bar seats 4. There is also a redwood patio table and umbrella. Jump on your bike and go for a ride outside the door, or rent bikes in Tahoe City.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          Flat screen T.V. with upgraded cable. The master bedroom has a queen bed connected to the downstairs bathroom. The second downstairs bedroom had a bunk bed with a full down and a twin bed on the upper. Upstairs and has a s a loft with two comfy chairs for reading or relaxing, the dormer has a queen bed and a twin bed with a half bath.
