Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: We raised our 3 daughters with summer and winter trips to the cabin at Donner, they loved the beach in summer, swimming, boating, fishing. Riding their bikes in the quite neighborhoods and hiking. Winters were always about skiing and snowboarding, we hit all the major ski areas, Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar and Sugar Bowl each resort less than 30 minutes from the cabin. Now my grandchildren are repeating the experiences and loving every minute of their time at the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Donner Lake Woods, Truckee, CA, USA:
My husband and I fell in love with Donner Lake in 1976 while camping in the area. We searched diligently for a cabin to purchase and in the fall of 1976 bought our first cabin with partners. In 1980 we purchased another lot and built a cabin, our 3 children were young and loved mountains, swimming in the lake, riding their bikes, sledding on the little snow hill, skiing in the winter. The area has not changed dramatically in the last 34 years, it remains a quite, beautiful retreat, without throngs of tourists clogging the streets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy fishing in Donner or one of the nearby lakes. Many trips are pure relaxing times to kick back with a good book away from all the chores and worries of home and office. It is always fun to return to the Cabin after a day on the slopes, enjoy good company, a warm fire and relax without the long drive home.
