Property description

We call it our cabin but it’s a luxury home by most standards. Furnished well and perfect for large family or group of friends with its 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathes. Located in quiet Wolfe Estates (approx. 20 homes) just above Donner Lake, you are a ¼ mile walk from the Lake itself, 10 minutes to Sugar Bowl Ski Resort, Royal Gorge’s XCountry resort and downtown Truckee. It’s also a 25 minute drive to most of the area’s other major resorts such as Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and North Star, 30 minutes to Lake Tahoe/Tahoe City, and 35 minutes from the casinos and shows of Reno. In the summer, you’re surrounded by a gigantic playground for cycling, mountain biking, tubing, kayaking, rafting, SUP'ing, golfing, hiking, rock climbing, and beaching on lakes and rivers. No shortage of good restaurants.

The main floor of the home lives in the trees with lots of light/sun exposure and a well-appointed kitchen, dining area, large living room with 60” big screen, fireplace, large deck with BBQ, two bedrooms (queen bed in each) sharing a Jack & Jill full bath, and a ½ bath. Downstairs includes a large master suite (king bed) with an over sized master bathroom with large Jacuzzi tub and enclosed double shower, as well as the 4th bedroom (queen bed) with its own bath. All beds are high quality mattresses. The house is approx 3,000 sq feet and includes a two car garage with snow clearing throughout the winter.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Georgia and Steve live in the San Francisco Bay Area - this is a 2nd home for us we use frequently and gives us access to the massive Tahoe playground. In winter, we ski downhill and cross country, snowshoe, sled, and enjoy hot toddies after winter play. In summer, it's all about hiking and exploring, cycling, both mountain and road, and beaching at Donner Lake Beach or along a lake or river on one of our hikes.

Why the Owner Chose Donner Lake:
We take great pride in our homes - you will always find our home clean and comfortable as Georgia has a knack for giving a home that welcoming feeling. The neighborhood is almost always extremely quiet but action is close by after a 5 minute walk to the beach. The house has huge windows in every room which makes for outside/inside living. South Facing exposure fills the sun and large back deck with sunshine all day - sunning on the deck in winter is not uncommon. Snowstorms are fun as you'll feel like you're living in the trees with snow coming down all around. We often cross country ski the neighborhood or beach before the snow plows show up. Can't overemphasize what fantastic winter/summer playgrounds sit 5-30 minutes in any direction.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our commitment is to treat our guests as if they were visiting us at home - we want you to be comfortable and to have all that you need to make for an incredible visit. We hope that you will treat our home with the same love and respect we would afford you if we visited yours.
