Property description

Our beautiful, Tahoe-Donner home in the foothills above the town of Truckee features a large 'great-room', perfect for entertaining, and a host of amenities that will make your stay in the Lake Tahoe area truly memorable.

During the winter, guests can enjoy a 'private' snow-play area in the large, empty lot next door. This is ideal for families with small children who don't want the hassle of loading up the kids to go to a public snow play area, only for someone in the group to get tired and want to go home. For those into snow sports, the home is a short 20 minutes from Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine ski resorts. We are also just a 5 minute drive to the Tahoe Donner downhill ski area.

The home itself features 1998 modern construction and includes a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, central heating, and pine accents throughout. The entire living area is on one level with direct access to both outdoor decks. The 'Great Room' offers almost 1,000 square feet of space, complete with a large sectional, 48' rear projection TV equipped with cable/DVD/VCR, dining area that comfortably seats seven, wood burning stove, and a kitchen area with plenty of counterspace. The master bedroom has a pillow-top, Sealy Posturepedic California king bed, its own 27' TV with cable and DVD player, and private bathroom with washer and dryer. The second bedroom features a queen-size Sealy Posturepedic (new in September 2008) and a private deck. The third bedroom has a bunk bed with full on the bottom and a twin on the top and another 27' TV with DVD and VCR, great for the kids. A two car garage with regular driveway snow plow service during the winter provides parking for 4 vehicles.

During the spring, summer, and fall months, you will enjoy the two outdoor decks, one with an amazing view of Mt. Rose sunsets, the other private and secluded. The home has close proximity to all that the Tahoe-Donner community has to offer, including 3 pools, tennis center, workout facilities, and a semi-private beach club on the east shore of Donner Lake. Minutes away from the Tahoe-Donner and Coyote Moon championship golf courses and the quaint and rustic town of Truckee with its lovely boutique shopping and dining experiences, the home's location can offer something for everyone in your family.

Tahoe-Donner offers a great Lake Tahoe vacation experience, especially for families. The community offers 3 pools (1 adult only), a tennis center with 11 courts, a semi-private beach club on Donner Lake with Kayak and paddle boat rentals, and two restaurants including the newly completed Tahoe-Donner Lodge. The downhill ski area is super convenient and great for young families and beginners. The cross-country ski area is second to none, offering access to 4,800 acres of terrain, including the amazing Euer valley. During the winter, the golf course driving range (3 minutes away) is turned into a public snow-play area with sled rentals. After a good day on the slopes, soothe your aching muscles in one of the 3 spas at the Trout Creek Recreational center. Best of all, we're 20-30 minutes closer to the Bay Area, right off highway 80, and provide easier access to all the ski resorts and golf courses than those communities near Lake Tahoe.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Having a small family of four that loves the comforts of home when we travel, we have been enamored with vacation rentals for almost two decades and now own three vacation properties, each with something unique to offer our guests. It all started with our mountain property in the Lake Tahoe area which we have been offering since 2000 and hosted hundreds of guests. We added our charming beach bungalow in Santa Barbara in 2013 and that has been such a big hit, we are replicating the effort with a beach area property on the border of North Pacific Beach and La Jolla.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
This was our first vacation property, purchased in the Fall of 1998. Built the summer before, we fell in love with the location and stellar view of Mt. Rose from the front deck. The Tahoe Donner community was relatively new, had a ton of amenities for our soon to be family, and was a lot easier to get into and out of after a day on the hills. Initially, we used it solely as a private ski home to visit from time to time as we lived and worked in the Bay Area. We initially never considered offering it as a vacation rental. Then the Millennium rolled around and we couldn't afford NOT to rent it for the two week holiday period. It was really a great experience and we were finding it more and more difficult to visit the home regularly, so we started offering it to guests on a regular basis. 15 years later, we have hosted hundreds of guests to amazing stays in the Tahoe area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Most of the properties we looked at in Tahoe were 15+ years old and they definitely showed their age. Our property was a spec home that was just having the finishing touches put in. The construction was modern, the layout contemporary and we absolutely loved the open feel of the great room. We were sold on the property almost immediately. It wasn't until we spent our first winter visit that we figured out the empty lot next door made for an awesome private snow play area (and still is 17 years later).
