Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a Bay Area family of 5, with the children ranging in age from 5 years old down to 8 months old. (Thaddeus, Astrid, Linnea, Eli, and Soren are our names) Astrid and I love the mountains, and have always dreamed of having a cabin someday. We finally made that a reality in 2010, and have been enjoying it ever since. Our sports include cross country skiing, downhill skiing, mountain biking, road biking, trail running, fishing, camping, backpacking. Fortunately our kids so far are following suit, and they love coming to the cabin any chance they can get. We spend a lot of time at Donner lake swimming around and having beach days. The trails around Tahoe Donner are amazing. I am an avid mountain biker, and feel that Truckee is one of the best mountain bike areas I have ever encountered. I also do the Donner lake triathlon (Olympic distance) yearly in mid July. This is a beautiful triathlon, and I encourage any triathlete to check it out. There are many great hiking trails, which lead to the many lakes of the north lake Tahoe area as well as stunning vistas.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
This house held particular appeal for us because it is kid friendly is so many ways. It is located near the Tahoe Donner ski resort for our kids. We can walk with them to their ski lessons. We love the back yard because it is flat. Check out a few houses with decks 40 ft from the ground, and you'll know why. We wanted a house where we could let our kids safely roam around, and that is what they do here. The sliding doors in the great room open directly onto the 400 ft Trex deck, and the deck is only 3 steps up from ground level. The forested back yard is flat and safe and private. Our kids can spend a whole day just exploring back there, while we relax on the large deck in sun or shade depending on the temperatures out. The house is on a beautiful street that is strangely flat for being in the mountains. Our kids ride their bikes around here (with supervision of course). The house is only 1000 sq ft, but it feels bigger on the inside. The bathroom is spa like, and we love the heated marble floors and large soaking tub.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
To us, this house is a sanctuary. We lead busy lives down in the SF Bay Area, and we love that area as well. But when we come up to the cabin, we can all feel a major difference. There is relaxation and excitement both at the same time. We didn't realize how much we would come to love the Tahoe Donner amenities. The cross country ski resort is world class, and the recreation center is amazing with year round outdoor lap swimming, three hot tubs, sauna, massage etc This place continues to exceed our expectations in every way, and we hope you will come check it out for yourself.
