About the property

Prime Location, Single Story 4 Bedroom House, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our Zen Den on Olso Drive in Tahoe Donner fulfills our wish list: a short walk to the pools, spa, sauna, steam room, and massage center. A single story easy floor plan on a easy access level lot, with four private bedrooms rooms and a spacious living room and kitchen. Tranquil and relaxing.

Bedrooms consist of: 2 King Master Bedrooms with their own bathrooms on one side of the hall and two Queen size bedrooms on the opposite side of the Hall. We have furnished the rooms with clean beautiful beds and bedding consisting of 100% cotton sheets, towels, and robes.

The living room has clean luxurious and comfortable natural leather sofas, a reading library, and both internet and cable. The kitchen has double ovens, convection microwave, dishwasher, and culinary essentials.

We looked for quite some time to find a single level (no stairs to contend with in the snow), 4 bedroom home with two master suites that would provide comfort and privacy when vacationing with our friends. The privacy of each room and layout is ideal.

Guests have independence with the optimal logistics as our mountain home is less than a 5 minute walk to the Lodge, Golf Course, Grocery, Trout Creek Recreation Center and Year round lap Pool, sauna, steam room, hot tubs and massage center. Yoga and exercise classes are a short walk away and the gym is fully equipped.

We are a family of epicureans. Our kitchen is roomy and functional with setting and seating service for 12 guests.

Our family room has quality large leather sofas and chairs, a chess and backgammon game table, TV with a DVD & VHS player, ipod doc with surround sound. We have a video library, book and game library.

High speed Wireless internet throughout the cabin.

Hiking/Biking Trails. Equestrian center. Golf Course, Cross Country Skiing, Downhill Skiing, Tennis, Marina, are a few of the amenities. The Trout Creek Private Club is less than a 5 minute walk away with full gym, 2 swimming pools, sauna, steam room, 3 hot tubs, pilates/yoga/fitness classes and complete golf course. We have 2 guest cards for up to 4 guests each per day (8 guests, minimal fee is charged at the Trout Creek desk with the guest pass of $8 per person per day and towel service is included).

The Lodge restaurant is next door to the Club for a relaxing dinner or to mingle at the bar over a few cocktails after a round of golf or by the fire after the slopes! Tahoe is known for being California's gateway to outdoor adventure.

Our location makes it easy for part of your group to take a short ride and enjoy the private marina, equestrian center, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, sledding while another part stays in and can read a novel by the fire and then taking a walk to the lodge for lunch or to go for a swim, hot tub or massage. The freedom of walking to and from the ammenities, grocery, gym, pools, lodge, reduces dependance on vehicles or others to get around and grants freedom to each guest to come and go as they please.

Keywords: Best Location in Tahoe Donner. A short walk to the Trout Creek, pools, jacuzzi, steam, sauna, gym and massage, the Lodge sports bar, fine dining, wine shop and groceries. 4 bedrooms with 2 en-suite Kings, 1 Queen, and 1 Queen with a 2 twin trundle. Easy access level lot with drive in 2 car garage and single story home! We sought out this location with an easy living single story home and large bedrooms!

Great ski country house

  • 4 of 5

Scott and Linda's place is a great ski country cabin in Tahoe Donner. We were not familiar with the area but is ideal for families, especially with kids learning to ski. The local mountain is small but ideal for beginning to intermediate skiers. There are other attractions such as Snowplay a sledding hill, cross country skiing and snow-mobiling. It's a great place to base and more challenging mountains are about 30 minutes away for more advanced skiiers. The house is very nice and perfect for our family gathering.

Such a fun spot to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I love this cabin! It's in a quiet neighborhood in the forest, so you can walk right out the back door for a short hike. The clubhouse is also a short walk, so you can go swimming or to the hot tub or sauna without having to spend the whole day. And Tahoe Donner is a fun area that not many people (usually headed to Lake Tahoe) know about. Donner Lake is beautiful and great for swimming in the summer, with many more open spots at the beach or docks than Lake Tahoe usually has. Donner Pass has great hiking and climbing. And there's even a local ski hill, which is great for beginners or families who don't want to spend a lot at the resort.

Comfy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed cabin is just what is needed if you want to get away from the bustle of job and city.

This magnificent cabin is spacious, yet cozy, and if you're into gourmet cooking, the kitchen will definitely fill all of your needs. It is quiet! If, however, you are not into peace and quiet, downtown Truckee is just five minutes away. This cabin is perfect for year round getaway vacations; ski sports in the winter months and outdoor activities in the summer and spring. You will not be idle at all--there is lots to do and this cabin is the perfect base of operations: comfort, quiet, coziness, activities at your fingertips--this cabin has it all!

Thomas L. Doyle

PS This cabin was immaculately clean and showed signs of excellent care
