The living room, with its high ceilings, large windows, and comfortable furnishings, invites you to sit back and relax while you warm up by the gas fireplace. Make some popcorn and watch a movie on the cable-equipped flatscreen TV, which also has Netflix streaming. And on those evenings when you all can't agree on what to watch, there's another space in the loft, perfect for lounging and featuring another flatscreen TV. The free WiFi will come in handy when you want to check snow conditions and plan activities for your stay.
After you make a hearty meal in the kitchen, which features standard appliances - including a dishwasher, dine together at the table for six. And if you have a full house, use the four addition seats at the adjacent breakfast bar. In the summer, fire up the gas grill when hunger pangs hit, and savor your dinner on the deck, surrounded by tall pines.
This three-bedroom (plus loft), two-bathroom home has ample sleeping options for up to eight guests. There's a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, which has an en suite bathroom and a queen in the second bedroom.

You won't have to go far for outdoor fun when you stay at this home. Summertime travelers will love being so close to the golf course, and when the urge to take a hike comes over you, all you'll have to do is step outside your door to access the Tahoe Donner trail system. Tennis buffs can hit the shared courts, while water lovers can head to Donner Lake for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, and more. And when you just want to have a low-key evening at home, you'll find plenty of games for both kids and adults to keep you occupied.
