Tahoe Donner house description

'This is the nicest house we've ever rented in Tahoe!' December 2014, just got off the phone with my latest rental party, and that's what she said verbatim. I spend time at this house during the off season keeping it BEAUTIFUL. Wake up in a beautiful wooded location, with sunshine streaming through the trees. Quiet and peaceful. Private Hot Tub for 6. Soak under the stars and among the trees! Gorgeous 4 bedroom plus loft, 3 bathrooms (two master suites - big jacuzzi tub, huge marble rain shower). 1 king, 2 queens, 4 twins + 2 sleeper sofas. The downstairs master bedroom has new carpet as of Dec. 2014 and a new Memory Foam mattress, which get better reviews than regular mattresses. Beautifully furnished, fabulous location close to convenience store + Rec Center, where you can use pools, hot tubs, golf course + other Tahoe Donner amenities. Spacious great room with wood cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light. We have a beautiful piano out of the main thoroughfares in the loft. Awesome wood stove, firewood. Laundry downstairs. 2 car garage, huge flat driveway. Two large flat-screen TVs with DVD/Cable. Piano is conveniently tucked away in the loft. High-speed WiFi Internet access. Nice deck perfect for BBQ, gas grill. Patio dining table available during the non-winter months. Nearby attractions include Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, historic downtown Truckee, casinos, Reno, bike paths, hiking trails, x-country skiing, etc. No smoking. Pet friendly, please inquire. This is MUCH nicer than your typical rental home. We look forward to your visit to our lovely home. :)

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: I love skiing and the outdoors, and I love sharing this beautiful house with my renters. :)

                          Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                          As soon as I saw this house, I knew this was THE ONE. I could see its potential. Due to its prime Tahoe Donner location, there was a bidding war so I put in a bid well over asking price and got the house! Since then we have lovingly updated, remodeled, and improved every single year - and we love it! You will too :)

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          One of the most beautiful lots in Tahoe Donner. Set back from the road in a very quiet neighborhood. Nearly half an acre. Serene and peaceful with tremendous privacy and access to a large greenbelt behind the house. The house is also kept in prime condition, upgraded regularly, and is much nicer than your typical rental house.
