Nestled in the trees on the top of Ski Slope, our stunning log home sits on two acres, giving it a parklike setting with privacy and elegance. Designed to evoke the feel of your own private lodge, exquisite attention was given to craftsmanship, finishes and decor. Each log was lovingly hand picked in Montana. A large bank of windows brings the outdoors in no matter the season. The spacious great room with its stone fireplace is the perfect spot to track winter snowdrifts or watch deer and birds.
Two professional bakers designed the kitchen. With prep and kitchen sinks, large Viking range and indoor grill, it is easy to prepare an intimate dinner for two or a family Thanksgiving feast. The spacious open floor plan easily meets the needs of a busy family.
Designed for ease of living, there are three bedrooms: one bedroom (queen-size bed) and bathroom on the main floor for those who prefer not to use stairs. Upstairs are the master bedroom (queen-size bed), and the 3rd bedroom (full-size bed). The loft, with two twin-size daybeds, provides perfect away space for reading or watching a movie. A mudroom minimizes after ski hassles, and forced air heating warms the house quickly - there is a lovely woodburning fireplace to further enhance the lodge-feeling.
In summer you'll find golf courses, tennis courts, a full equestrian center, swimming pools, archery, a recreation center with a fully equipped work-out facility, hot tubs and sauna, recreation events, day camps, spectacular biking and hiking (ask me about great hikes organized by the Tahoe Donner Hiking Club!),and of course access to the Donner Lake Private Beach and Marina with all its water activities for endless terrific family fun, plus year around heated outdoor pools, spas and sauna, great rock climbing and much more.
Check Tahoe Donner's website for more information.
Truckee has premium shopping and outlet stores.
Reno's international airport is only 30 minutes away. If you have a private plane you can fly into Truckee Airport.
In winter ski in/ski out from the back of our property to the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort! And a mere 20-30 minutes away are the world class downhill and cross country ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge to name just a few. Minutes away are the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort, Cross Country area, downhill sledding and ice skating rink. And you will appreciate the level driveway to get to the house!
No shortage of things to do to be sure. But if what you want to do is to do nothing at all, then we invite you to our home. Its tranquil beauty is guaranteed to hold you captive making it difficult to ever think of leaving!
On a final note, this home was a labor of love. We trust that those who rent it will keep this in mind and will treat it well. It sleeps six to eight people comfortably. It is not a home for large parties or groups. Kids/teenagers must be accompanied by adults.

About the owner: This house was love at first sight for us. We love the starry nights, the snow topped trees, the huge logs that were used to make the house - it just fits like a glove any time of the year!
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Summers are fabulous! There are endless water sports, a private beach and marina at Donner lake, biking and hiking, tennis, golf, horseback riding, archery - we love it all! And we love the winter! We go skiing at Squaw, Northstar, Alpine, Sugar Bowl, and Tahoe Donner (just to name a few resorts). And then there is Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner itself for great cross country skiing or snow shoeing. Plus ice skating in Truckee, Northstar and Squaw Valley, and we go snowshoeing right by our house!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is very private. It sits on almost two acres and backs up to the Open Space that is the Tahoe Donne Ski Resort so we can ski in and ski out. The Tahoe Donner recreation facilities are fabulous with swimming pools, a gym, restaurants, a private beach at Donner Lake, a wonderful golf course, horseback riding, nice restaurants in old town Truckee, or we drive over the border to Nevada to check out the Casinos. So much to do, but also so wonderful to stay home and cook up fabulous meals in the kitchen designed by two professional bakers!
