ABOUT OUR HOME Our sunny, modern, and beautifully decorated five-bedroom Truckee vacation home is located in the popular Tahoe Donner community. Whatever the season there’s tons to do outside, whether hiking, swimming, golfing, playing tennis and paddle-boarding in the summer or enjoying the world-class skiing nearby in the winter. For those days when you don’t feel like heading out, stay in and enjoy the hot tub, the gourmet kitchen or just curling up with a good book in front of the fire.
The house throughout has been tastefully decorated in an eclectic modern style, with attention to detail everywhere you look.
On the main level of the house the open floor plan includes a great room with room for everyone to socialize, a fully-stocked kitchen for the chef in your group and a dining table that seats twelve for your family feasts. Also on this floor is the Master Suite which has a large and sunny bedroom with king-size bed, a walk-in closet and a luxurious stone and granite bathroom with a step-in shower, two vanities and a large jacuzzi tub. Two other bedrooms are on this floor, each with a king-size bed, and together they share a bathroom with twin vanities and a tub with shower.
Downstairs you'll find the two remaining bedrooms. There's a bunk room with four twin beds, and the fifth bedroom with two twin beds, one of which can convert to a queensize bed on a trundle. There are two more bathrooms, one with a luxurious deep tub as well as a step-in shower and the other with a step-in shower. The large recreation room has a widescreen HD TV (with cable), a modern sectional sofa, a DVD player, a stereo, and an iPod dock, a card table, as well as a selection of toys and games.
The beds in our home all have new, comfortable, high-quality mattresses and high thread-count linens. There are laundry facilities on both floors. All bedrooms and the rec room are carpeted while the bathrooms all have heated floors - no cold feet here!
Outside, you will find a big sunny deck off the great room with a large gas grill and seating for twelve for an outdoor feast. Downstairs there is a wide patio with a six-person hot tub where you can enjoy a soak amongst the trees after a day out hiking or on the slopes. We have an ample two car garage and a flat driveway (a huge benefit when there is any snowfall) with space for two more cars.
This beautiful home sleeps up to 12 guests and is especially well-suited to three couples with up to six children. Our home is ideal for year-round getaways, whether you bring your skis or your hiking boots, with family and friends.

About the owner: 3 San Francisco families who love to cook, ski, snowboard, and hike during the day, and share a bottle (or more) of wine and delicious meals in the evenings.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner: Unlike many houses in the area, we chose to create a modern, clean space that forgoes the typical Tahoe cliches. You won't find old skis, wooden reindeer, or kitsch wooden log furniture in this house :-)
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house looks great and feels right. The things you need are at hand. Kids run around the rec room or explore the woods out the back while you chill in the hot tub. Or - seat 12 for a feast in the great room upstairs. People universally settle in & have a great time - you will too.
