Property description

Donner Lake is the place to be in the Summer! It is warm, beautiful and peaceful. Wake up and hear the mountain chickadees singing their song. Have your morning coffee on our deck overlooking the lake, or walk across the street and enjoy the sun on the docks. Paddle your board right from the dock or put your boat in the water and park it across the street from the house. Docks are perfect for early morning fishing, or water skiing/wakeboarding and paddleboarding when the water is calm and glassy. The house is close to the Public Beach, Truckee, Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Tahoe City for other summer recreation. Or just relax in a quiet and private place.he docks.

In the winter our house is warm and cozy with fantastic views of Donner Lake and the snow covered mountains. We are closest to Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch and Boreal. Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are only 15 minutes away. Our parking area is plowed. Walkways and stairs are shoveled before your arrival. We are on a main road that is plowed consistently.

Truckee is a year round historic tourist town. There are 7 ski areas within 10 to 20 minutes of the house many with year round activities, including Squaw Valley the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics and Northstar California which is one of the Vail Resort Properties. Sugar Bowl is one of the oldest ski areas in the United States and the closest ski area to the house. Sugar Bowl offers a unique modern ski area experience while retaining the old Lodge and classic ski area feeling. Boreal is also very close and offers night skiing and a Woodward Training Complex. Lake Tahoe is 25 minutes away and a spectacular destination. We have great restaurants, shopping and easy access to all types of adventures!
