About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our home is located on a quiet street in Tahoe Donner. This house is great for families with school-aged kids. We have board games, puzzles, high-definition TV, DVDs and a GameCube with several games to choose from. The two-car garage has saucers and sleds for snow play. A gentle slope behind the house is great for sledding with young children so there's no need to get in the car and drive to a snow play area.

Upstairs, you will find the great room, kitchen, dining area, master suite, and guest bathroom.

The great room features a wood stove, two couches, a large screen TV, high-definition cable TV receiver, Blu-Ray & DVD player, Nintendo GameCube, and iPod player.

The kitchen is fully stocked with needed cookware and spices, electric stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker & grinder, and plenty of counter space and dishes.

The large master suite has a king bed and attached private bathroom with two sinks, a shower, and a large bathtub.

There are two bedrooms and a full bathroom downstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed. The other 'kids bedroom' has a bunk bed and a day bed plus trundle - sleeping up to 4 people. The downstairs bathroom has a bath tub with a shower over the tub.

Linens and bath towels are provided. A washer and dryer are available in the house.

Driveway snow removal service is provided once per day when new snow has fallen.

Tahoe Donner is a wonderful, mountain resort community with its own small downhill ski area, cross country ski center, sledding hill, small market/deli, and the Trout Creek Recreation Center. Trout Creek offers a hot tub, heated pool, fitness center, saunas, and a health spa. Tahoe Donner also features a tennis center, equestrian center, 18-hole golf course, driving range, a pizza pub and The Lodge restaurant and bar. Guests may also use a private beach and marina on Donner Lake during summer months.

Tahoe Donner is located north west of central Truckee. It is 5-7 minutes drive to downtown shopping and restaurants, and 15-30 minutes to major ski resorts including Northstar at Tahoe, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl. Rental includes guest access cards for the Tahoe Donner amenities. A nominal charge applies for some activities.

Tahoe Donner also offers miles and miles of hiking and biking trails.
