It is located in the Sierra Mountains which provide beautiful views of Mountain terrain and numerous hiking trails.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
              We purchased in Tahoe Donner because of all the amenities the community has to offer. No matter the season there is always something to do for both adults and children. We purchased this home in particular because of the space and layout. It offers a large amount of living space and a layout that suits either one or more families. We love to entertain with families and this home works perfectly.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home was designed to work for both kids and adults. It is perfect for multiple family rentals given the amount of sleeping space and layout. For the kids there is a game room with Wii, Xbox, video games, train table, dvd...(it can also sleep up to 8 kids (4 in beds and 4 on mattresses on the floor). For adults there is a gourmet kitchen and an outdoor seating area with amazing views of the Sierras. Additionally there is also 2 indoor jazuzzi tubs and a outdoor hot tub. Perfect for after skiing relaxation either indoors or outdoors. It is also located on a triple lot so the privacy is unmatched for Tahoe Donner.
