About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)
Year round the rear decks are drenched in sun, making it perfect to picnic, hang out, or tan. Grill (gas grill adjacent to kitchen) or sit and lounge on the back porches in the sun. The large deep outdoor hot tub is loaded with jets, lighting, and a waterfall, accessible from both floors. Smaller covered front deck gives you protection from the sun and is a great place to read and relax. Next to last house in the Tahoe Donner development (so you have use of all the amenities they offer for a guest fee), but keeps you out of the Tahoe/Donner traffic within easy driving to all amenities. Short drive to the Marine and Beach Club at Donner Lake, Equestrian Center is on our street, ski area and cross country, Northwoods Tennis Club, Rec. Center and Fitness Center, (access is part of amenities) 5 minutes away. You can take a hike on the Emigrant Trail (the one the Donner Party took) which crosses the rear of the property. Take Alder Creek Rd to Rt 80 and connecting roads to both sides of Lake Tahoe, direct routes to Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine avoiding the Tahoe Donner and Truckee traffic.
Open space design kitchen, dining, living room with 1/2 bath upstairs. Ample granite counters with large island, vaulted wood ceilings, large rear deck and small front deck on this floor. Leather couches and chairs ensure comfort while watching the flat screen (which elevates out of the cabinet) while you enjoy the fire in the stove with a flick of the remote. Kitchen has own 4 place table and 4 place breakfast bar in addition to the 8 place dining room table. Kitchen has panini and waffle grills, blenders, crock pot, grinders, electric tea pot, Cuisinart and Keurig (k-cup) coffee makers, and more. New stainless steel appliances and granite top island make preparation easy. The two car garage allows you easy access directly into the hall leading to kitchen (keeps you out of the weather), featuring durable stone hallway, kitchen, and bathroom floors, with large entry way front and garage hall closets. Combination front door lock allows easy home access for all guests through stone floor mud room with closet, so no worries about keys. Additional storage cabinets, ski locker, and equipment dryer are located in the garage.
Down the stone stairway you find three large bedrooms and one small bedroom (twin) with warm, soft carpeting. New king bed in master, with connected dual vanity bath, shower, heated floor, and large jet tub (all mattreses are recent replacements - premium quality). You'll find queen beds in other nicely appointed two larger bedrooms (all have luggage stands for your convenience). Windows have insulated retractable coverings to keep the house extra warm at night, and shaded during hot sunny days. Large rec room has adjacent small bedroom which makes a great private area for the kids to hang out and sleep, so the adults can have the open design upstairs to themselves. Rec rooms has a small bar, large LG flat screen, vcr, dvd,and stereo, (with day bed which makes two twins or combine for a king), additional leather couch (which makes into a queen), two bar stools and plush comfort chair. The new large capacity front load washer and dryer (in laundry room adjacent to rec room) keeps laundry time to a minimum. Outside relax in the oversize hot tub on rear deck just a couple of feet from the door (accessible from master bed room or upper deck). .
To locate home on map, find Tahoe Donner campground. House is on west side of camp ground on the outer border. Some GPS are not accurate with this property (shows you arrived 1.2 miles early).

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Hello, My wife and I live in Raymond, Maine (west of Portland) and purchased this home so we can ski soft western snow and get away from the northeast ice and cold. We love the outdoors and adventure. With free time I snow ski and play hockey winters, mountain bike, motor cycle, and barefoot waterski summers. My wife left her position as Maine Commissioner of Education and now has time to enjoy the home as much as I do. She has decorated and equipped the home so it has everything you will ever require. You already figured out I'm on the left (with Travis Pastrana).
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
First requirement was a large relatively new high end home, open design kitchen/living rooms with a direct route to the ski slopes. An added bonus unknown to us when we purchased the home, Alder Creek road is one of the first plowed, and enables us to avoid downtown Truckee and take River Street to Squaw and Alpine, or the even more direct route to Northstar. Second was some privacy, and there are no homes behind our property, so complete privacy during the winter. We are on the outer border of Tahoe-Donner camping area. Last was availability to mountain bike trails, golf course, horse back riding, and club house. All are within 6-7 minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy in spacious modern home with three outside decks and seperate areas for guest to congregate. Large drying booth for wet clothes and boots. Large cabinets in garage for skis, totes, bags, etc... Walking path just outside the back door. Home is built on an incline, sliding saucers available for the kids.
