Tahoe Donner house description

Our roomy 4 bedroom home is designed for family fun and comfort! Relax on the expansive decks, loll in the living room in front of the cozy stone fireplace, play pool in the sunroom or just sit back and relax in front of the giant HD TV.

* New internet-connected thermostat means you will arrive to a *warm* house
* New tankless water heater means hot showers are always available. New furnace is quiet and efficient for a totally comfortable stay.

The big open kitchen invites a cooking collaboration and the well stocked cabinets will serve the chefs in the crowd.

The sunken living room has several couches and everyone's favorite, a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window with a view of the surrounding forest. One couch is a queen sleeper and the sectional is very comfortable for an extra bed or two. Sit anywhere and enjoy the giant HD TV over the beautiful stone fireplace.

The adjoining dining room has a big dining table and additional log bar, that combined, seat 12 for that large family dinner. Watch the big game from the log bar with the best view in the house.

Bedrooms:

Master Suite - is like its own retreat with a king bed, private deck, walk-in-closet, computer desk with Wi Fi, TV and bathroom suite with huge spa tub/shower. The Master bedroom also has a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window, a favorite quiet spot for reading that great novel.

Log Room - has a twin trundle bed that can be set up as a king. It has beautiful views of the forest.

Ranch Room - has a four poster queen bed with a memory foam topper, and beautiful views to the forest out back.

Bunk Room - Great for the kids, has a twin over full bunk with a twin trundle underneath. The TV and camp decor make this a favorite hang out.

We keep the kids (and grown ups) busy with the pool table, board games, horse shoes, sledding and of course the big screen TV + 2 TV's in the bedrooms.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: We both gravitate to the mountains. My husband grew up in the German Alps, and I lived in the Rockies in Montana We have traveled all over Europe and America and always prefer the countryside, especially the mountains. We have have always vacationed in beautiful places with our large extended family, and we keep coming back to Truckee. We love to ski, hike, ride horses, mountain bike, boat, swim and especially just relax. Tahoe Donner is the best place we have found to enjoy all that we do together.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                          We have been visiting the Tahoe area all our lives and kept returning to Tahoe Donner. We frequently rent with another family and love the roomy homes, well planned facillities and easy access to HWY 80 and the surrounding areas. We enjoy the area year round and especially love all the Tahoe Donner amenities - ski hill and equestrian center just up the road, Rec center with pools, gym and hot tubs, lakeside beach club and so much more. We wanted a large family friendly house with easy year-round access and lots of parking. We found all that and much more in our new home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our home is near the top of Tahoe Donner resort and backs up to an open forested preserve. We can hike, bike or cross country ski right out our front or back door and go for miles. We have room for our whole extended family and/or another family we invite up to share a fun vacation together.
