Property description

Our beautifully decorated, light-filled flat has stunning views of the Sierra Mountains, all the way to Nevada. Quiet T-D area on Ski Slope Way. 2b/2b with living room, kitchen, dining room, deck, and views from every room. Tons of room for your kids to run around and for you to have private space. The view? Check out Northstar in the distance out your window without even getting out of bed! Enjoy your private patio and deck, both with views. Your kids will love our outdoor play structure (snow fort in winter) and yard for games. 5 minutes to T-D heated lap pool, sauna, steam, jacuzzis, fitness center, tennis, golf and more. Our place has new beds and furnishings and you will always find it sparkling clean. This is not your Grandmother's 40 year-old ski cabin! We live upstairs to meet your every need--the heats, lights, and water in the flat are always on and we keep the driveway and your entry clear of snow. If you've rented a standalone house in T-D before, then you know how great these benefits are!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are full time Truckee residents and die-hard Squaw skiers. We also love back-country skiing, biking, and hiking--ask us for advice on everything from a great trail to a good place to eat. This private home is a 3-story setup where we live on the 2nd and 3rd floor and we rent out the first floor as Ski Slope Flat. We are new to VRBO as of 2013, having used Vacation rentals the last 4 years.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
Dave and I always dreamed of an Eastern Facing, high on the hill house with lots of light and incredible views. The minute we saw this home, with the mother-in-law flat, we knew it was for us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
CONVENIENCE with a VIEW! Heat, water, and lights are already on, awaiting your arrival. 2-car tandem parking and private covered entry stairwell for flat. We keep the driveway and entry way clear of snow in winter. We are local, right here if you have any issues, need advice, or just a cup of sugar! Great space with an incredible view at a reasonable price! New furnishings, kept VERY clean, terrific place for kids (huge outdoor yard including sledding in winter--we provide the sleds and the playful Golden Doodle, Hobie)
