Tahoe Donner house description

Welcome to Hale Mauka, our 'home in the mountains'. Our three bedroom, two bath house is truly our second home in Tahoe Donner. We are proud to be able to share it with you throughout the year.

Hale Mauka can comfortably sleep eight guests. A downstairs master suite with a 42in TV is down the hall from the full kitchen. Upstairs, the 'kid's room' contains two sets of bunk beds and a pair of fat boy bean bag stools for lounging. The other upstairs room has a 42in TV and queen bed. A full living room and dining room combine to give lots of room for families to stretch out and relax after a full day enjoying the Tahoe surroundings. There is a wood stove in the living room that can heat the entire home; baseboard heaters and humidifiers are also in each room to further control the temperature.

Don't want to totally unplug while you're away? No worries -- high speed internet is included along with free WiFi for guests. Three LCD Smart TVs (55in in the living room, 42in in two bedrooms) have built-in Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime connections so you can stream videos to your heart's content. The living room TV also includes an HD cable feed so you can watch the major sports games in real time. A Mac Mini is in the loft along with an Airprint-capable printer, so you can surf the web or even get some work done if needed.

Located on Alder Creek Road, it is one of the first thoroughfares in Tahoe Donner to get plowed, providing clear access to your snow sport destinations. The Tahoe Donner Downhill ski area is 5 minutes away, as is the Cross Country/Equestrian center. An easy jaunt down 89 takes you to Northstar, Squaw and other Tahoe destinations.

Great views of Alder Creek can be seen from the front deck. The rear deck leads to a wonderful backyard play area where kids can go downhill with the provided sleds or just roll around in the snow. You can even play horseshoes in the horseshoe pitch in the front yard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, utensils, and dinnerware. There is also a full size washer and dryer so you can pack lightly.

Guests (for a nominal fee) have access to all Tahoe Donner amenities, including downhill and cross country skiing, snow play, equestrian center, mountain biking, orienteering (geocaching), tennis courts, pools, Trout Creek Recreation Center, and Tahoe Donner Golf Course.

High thread-count sheets, down comforters and memory foam mattresses on all beds, along with soft towels ensure that you can relax in luxury after a full day of fun.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We love being able to get away from the bustling city to enjoy the outdoors.

              Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
              We chose this house because of its proximity to all of the Tahoe Donner amenities, including downhill and cross country skiing, the equestrian center, and all the trails for hiking and biking. Its location on a main Tahoe Donner thoroughfare greatly reduces the chances of getting snowed in or out.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Even though this is our vacation get-away, it's still nice to be connected when we want to be. Free WiFi and multiple large screen TVs ensure we have plenty of entertainment. The slope in the backyard is great fun all year round; it's great for sledding in the winter.
