About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 7)

Enjoy a cozy vacation in our fully equipped luxury vacation rental, Casa Sierra.

Professionally decorated, our home is elegantly appointed throughout with striking Native American artwork. The spacious living room/dining area features a Vermont wood burning stove and 20-foot cathedral ceiling flooded with ample natural light, a surround-sound system as well as two Cable TVs, high-speed internet, and free nation-wide long distance calling.

The dining area is adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. An ample loft with a queen size hide-a-bed sofa, extra TV/DVD, desk, children and adult games & game table and books overlooks the living room.

Each bedroom has a queen bed, down comforters and plenty of extra blankets. This house is ideal for three couples or one or two families: with crib, twin bed, and queen bed in upstairs bedroom... and much more. There is a two-car garage, driveway parking for an additional two cars, and very little street traffic.
A great sledding hill on the property, viewable from inside, surrounded by a green belt. A tether is attached between two trees to allow your leashed pet to enjoy the outdoors. Golfing is just five minutes away. Just ten minutes from a great beginner & intermediate ski hill, ten minutes to Donner Lake, and twenty minutes to Lake Tahoe. Also nearby you can enjoy easy access to north shore world-class ski resorts: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Homewood, Boreal, and Sugar Bowl. Casa Sierra is ten minutes from great shops and restaurants in Truckee or easy access to South Shore, North Shore and Reno casinos. You can also enjoy white water rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, excellent hiking or world-class mountain biking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Residents of the SF Bay Area who use Casa Sierra as a vacation home

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Tahoe Donner is a year-round vacation getaway. We love to ski and golf and we love the tons of amenities. We also love that it is easy to get to quickly, just off of I-80 once you cross Donner Pass. It's about a half hour closer to the SF Bay Area and Sacramento than anyplace else in the Lake Tahoe Basin yet has easy and quick access to everything fun about the Lake Tahoe Basin

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Golf, horse back riding, swimming, hiking, fishing, private beach on Donner Lake, summer concerts, hay rack rides, western campfire BBQs, winter skiing, sledding, great restaurants, spending times with family and friends.
