                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: We have been married for 22 years and have 4 wonderful children. We enjoy getting up to Tahoe to get away from the craziness of the Bay Area.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                          I grew up spending summers in Tahoe. We love the Tahoe Donner location because of all the amenities and close proximity to the bay area. We recently purchased this property and have enjoyed every minute we have spent up in Tahoe Donner. Our home is spacious yet not too big. It is very relaxing and a great place to enjoy quality family time. My favorite part of the home is spending late afternoon in the hot tub after a long day of skiing.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Please let us know if you have special circumstances with arrival or departure times. We are willing to budge a few hours here and there if possible. We understand how things can change last minute and you might be able to get up to Tahoe earlier than planned. Just let us know and we will try and work things out.
