To start the morning, breathe in the fresh air during a sunrise hiking exploration of the Tahoe Donner trail system accessible from the house. Come back to make breakfast in the well-stocked kitchen complete with a gas range & oven, gourmet cookware, cutlery, and helpful gadgets such as a microplane and a Cuisinart Food processor. For your convenience, there is a coffee maker, a blender, and plenty of plates, silverware, glasses, and wine glasses. There are four barstools around the butcher block island, which separates the kitchen from the open great room with vaulted wood ceilings, the dining area (seats 10-12), the living room, and wet bar.


Recreational enthusiasts will have an exceptional time given the many outdoor opportunities Tahoe has to offer: golfing, mountain biking, fishing, and rafting, just to name a few. For more information on other area recreational activities, please see our other links – which can also be done from the house with the free wireless internet access!


In the evening, relax and watch a movie on the 42” plasma TV and DVD player. Listen to your own music by attaching your iPOD to the iPOD stereo dock connected to the 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Stereo System. Find peace in the wonderful view of the stars as you soak in the 8+person Hot Springs ® private hot tub and are enveloped by the scent of pine trees. Out on the east-facing back deck you will also find the direct line gas BBQ grill (no need to refill tanks). Top off the night with a glass of wine or sip hot chocolate by the indoor gas fireplace!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I met in Tahoe, and purchased our home in Tahoe Donner shortly after. We love spending time with family at the cabin, as well as showing out-of-town guests how amazing Tahoe is. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
We chose this property because it is the perfect house for the winter season: a great house layout with an open floor plan, lots of places for friends and family to stay, plus a flat driveway, ample parking, and convenient location to the ski resorts and the town of Truckee. Then we realized how amazing it is in the summers as well, from enjoying the green belt right in our backyard, to the Tahoe Donner amenities like the Donner Lake marina.
