About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)
For downhill skiers, the house is two miles from Sugar Bowl or Donner Ski Ranch and four miles from Boreal. Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are about 20 minutes away. Soda Springs Mountain Resort is 4 miles away and designed for young kids and families. Royal Gorge, the LARGEST cross country ski resort in North America, is four miles away. In the late spring, summer, and fall, there is boating, hiking, fishing, and lots of biking -- something for everyone. Donner Lake is a short paddle down the creek in one of the FOUR KAYAKS (two doubles and two singles) provided.
The first floor is very rustic and warm with vaulted, open beam trussed ceilings, wood floors and lots of windows with views of the creek. It has a 'great room' style living room with a granite fireplace, a large screen cable TV with surround sound, a Play station 3 with Blueray DVD. The dining area has a table for 10, and fully furnished kitchen with granite bar and TWO refrigerators for those large groups; a master bedroom has a king-size bed, fireplace, TV, Jacuzzi and master bathroom; a den with a queen size futon, and computer desk and printer, WIFI, a mud / laundry room with stainless steel fish cleaning sink, (laundry soap and fabric sheets are provided); and a half bath. Hydronic heat in the floor keeps the house cozy warm.
The second floor overlooks the great room. It has two large bedroom suites with their own bathrooms. The creek view room has a king and queen bed. The mountain view room has a queen bed, and TV. The second floor has a balcony, a recliner and its own stairway exit.
The third floor is a huge loft with clear story windows and views of Donner Peak. Two double bed futons and lots of room for blow up beds provided. Playstation 3.
LINENS ARE INCLUDED for all beds and futons.
We have a sunny front yard and a shady back patio with a gas bar-b-que and two tables and chairs for 12, The double car garage has SLEDS as well as places to store your gear. The house is on a road that is plowed well and often. There is off street parking for five vehicles. A snow service keeps the driveway clear of snow. An emergency generator comes on if power is lost and keeps the heat, hot water, and critical lighting on till power is restored. You may have cold neighbors visiting, for hot coffee, and chocolate.
We love our house and look forward to our own family gatherings. We really enjoy sharing it with other families and absolutely love hearing about their visits. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
