Tahoe Donner house description

Let your imagination begin. Put your feet up and relax next to the fire. Or sit back on the large deck and take in the sounds of the Sierras. This cozy home invites your family and friends to enjoy the alpine air and experience some time nestled amongst the firs. The living room is spacious with vaulted cathedral ceilings. A massive wall of windows rises to the roof inviting tree-filtered natural light throughout the chalet.

The roomy kitchen includes an open view to the dining and living areas. Kids and friends can belly up to the breakfast bar on four old west style, leather-topped swivel stools. The large dining table offers the setting for memorable dinners over glasses of wine and laughter. Or on warm summer nights take advantage of the Weber BBQ and picnic on the deck. After dinner enjoy one of the board games on the soft carpet before the fire.

With nearly ½ acre, the gently sloping lot backs to a green belt for hiking, playing and exploring. The neighborhood offers even more:
• The Tahoe Donner golf course, equestrian center, hiking and biking trails, bocce ball and volleyball, and tennis courts.
• Year round heated pools, steam room, sauna, hot tubs / spas, and more at Trout Creek Recreation Center and Northwoods Clubhouse.
• A short drive to world-class all-season resorts like Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugarbowl and Royal Gorge.
• The Lodge Restaurant & Pub – relaxed bistro atmosphere with fine pub cuisine
• Pizza on the Hill
• The Snowplay Area for tubing and sledding on groomed runs, snowshoeing and cocoa and snacks.
• Easy access to downtown Truckee for antiquing, shopping, groceries, restaurants, cafes, pubs and more.
• And when it’s time to go home, you will already be on the west side of Truckee, well ahead of those caught up behind you in the choked traffic on Hwy 89.

1. Master Suite (entire 2nd floor) – Queen bed - handmade custom log bed. Many windows and views. Private bathroom. Loft area overlooking the living area and the tree canopy outside the picture windows.

                        Everything about this home was great! We were 4 adults and 3 young kids and it was the perfect size and layout for us. The 3 kids shared the room with the bunk beds, which they loved! We loved the real fireplace too and there was loads of pre-chopped wood available for us to get a good fire going each evening. Also behind the house is a slope just about steep enough for the kids to have some fun with the sleds in the snow. Great fun! Location is also really good. We did the TahoeDonner downhill ski and cross country ski which are both about a 5 minute drive away. Also drove over to Squaw for some tubing and more skiing and that was only about a 20 minute drive. We've been to this area before but this was definitely the best home we've stayed in and we will definitely be back again at some point!

                        Our long weekend at this cozy house is sadly coming to an end. We loved the house. It's clean, quiet, bright and comfortable. The owners were pleasant and responsive. I'd definitely recommend it.

                        My family (myself, husband and three kids) truly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cabin. First off, it was very clean, tidy and well-organized. The location was awesome: close to shopping, groceries, hiking, etc. I loved, loved, loved the master suite upstairs, which was spacious and bright with a large bathroom. The beds were super cozy and warm. My kids had a blast sledding around the property. I would like to come back during the summer months so they could explore the trees and trails. I heard (but did not partake this time) of the excellent cross-country skiing trail by the golf course -- and of Friday night movie nights! I've never stayed in Tahoe Donner before, and I've gotta say, I really appreciated the community feel of the place. Several neighbors came up to say hello as we built snow forts/tunnels in the front yard. Made me envious to have a place there to call my own. But, since that's not happening any time soon, this is definitely the next best thing. We can't wait to return and have already booked a few more trips this season!

                        We had a wonderful mini post-Christmas vacation, and were so grateful for all of the new snow!!! Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the wno play area, and even tried out X-country skiing at Tahoe Donner. We will definitely come back to stay our new favorite spot! Happy new year!
