Tahoe Donner house description

This rental is your ticket to family fun and Lake Tahoe's 'outdoor buffet' of activities and sports. Our home is tastefully decorated and furnished with new and comfortable furniture and amenities. It is adult AND kid friendly.

Recreation for parents and children is just a block or two away in the Tahoe Donner Resort area. Walking distance to the sledding hill and the Trout Creek Recreation Center, five minutes from Tahoe Donner Family Ski Area and Cross-Country Center, 20 minutes to all major ski resorts, including North Star, Squaw, and Alpine. There is something for everyone here, and we are in the heart of it in this wonderfully quiet and central Tahoe Donner neighborhood.

To help you maximize your enjoyment, we have a hefty binder of restaurants, resort information, biking, hiking, and skiing trails, and local shops and services. Plan to stay at least a week to take advantage of all that is available. Be sure to save some time for family dinners around our extra-long dining room table or for a soak in the hot tub. Plenty of room for two families so you can double your fun!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We recently bought our first Tahoe home. We love the natural beauty of the area and look forward to spending time there with our boys. We have lived near the ocean for years enjoying the coast. Now it's time to explore the Sierras.

              Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
              At first we came for the snow sports - the boys like to snowboard. But summer activities are great fun too. So close to the Bay Area but it feels like another world.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home has a warm and friendly feeling. The Trout Creek Recreation Center is only a block away from the house. The kids can walk over to use the pool, workout or get a bit to eat at the deli.
