Donner Lake house description

This is a large “Swiss Style” Chalet that sits at the West End of Donner Lake in the popular Donner Woods. Located off a quiet, low traffic street, on a beautiful lot that backs up to a forested greenbelt with a seasonal creek and waterfall in the spring. You’ll enjoy great views of Donner Summit and Schallenberger Ridge, or a very short walk, 0.3 mile, will take you to the beach. The Chalet is 2800 square feet with two levels featuring central heat, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a bonus family room.

The main upper level has a large fully equipped kitchen with granite counters; a spacious Great Room with vaulted pine ceilings and gas wood stove; beautiful mountain decor and a large covered wrap around balcony that is awesome in both summer and winter, rain or snow. The upper level has a large master suite and bath, two guest bedrooms and a second full bathroom.

The lower level features a bonus family room, two more bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bath combo. A hideabed couch and futon are available in the bonus family room. This set-up is perfect for a little bit of separation of living space and privacy. Enjoy the great outdoors from the upper deck or hike right out the back door through the woods and up Shallenberger Ridge. A great open and relaxed feeling, while offering plenty of space and quiet privacy for everyone!

The Truckee and Donner lake area is great for fishing, boating, mountain biking, golf, skiing and everything else Truckee area has to offer. Boats, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and bikes are all available to rent from nearby venders, For snow skiers, Sugar Bowl is only 10 minutes away and Royal Gorge is only 15 minutes away for cross country skiing. Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar can be reached in 20-25 minutes for year round activities and entertainment. Tahoe and Reno are both within an EZ 35-40 minute drive. Shopping and great restaurants are available in historic downtown Truckee, just 15 minutes away. Donner Lake is a year round paradise!
