Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner: We are avid skiers and hikers. We have been coming to Lake Tahoe skiing for the past 20+ years and it has always been a dream to own our own little piece of Tahoe heaven. We selected our home for many reasons including:
• It’s unique architecture, warm get away feeling and ability to sleep up to 11 with plenty of privacy.
• Access to all the Tahoe Donner home owner association (HOA) amenities (fitness center, year round heated pools and Jacuzzi’s, golf, tennis club, equestrian center, 160 miles of hiking trails …)
• Being just a 3 hour drive from our home in SF and only 35 minutes from Reno airport
• Sunny southern exposure, mountain views and private forested setting
• Access to 4 world class ski resorts within 15 minutes including Squaw Valley, where we are season pass holders, but also North Star, Alpine Meadows and Sugar Bowl
The Unique Benefits at this House: Access to all Tahoe Donner HOA amenities within 1/2 - 2 miles from our home, yet our home 's lot/physical location is in a very private setting with an easy direct off road very slight grade driveway access (always important in winter) with our home backing up against forest greenbelt.
Additionally, we are only 4 miles from downtown Truckee with access to shopping centers and great restaurants.
