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.
