About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Bedroom 4 - game room, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 14)
New beds and feather pillows ensure a wonderful night's sleep. Downstairs, one bedroom has a new queen bed and bunk beds, while the second bedroom contains a queen bed. The third downstairs bedroom with its sliding glass doors doubles as a play space; it has a new queen foldout sofa by American Leather. If your group is larger than 12, the airbed in the closet should help!
Upstairs, the master bedroom contains a queen bed, a single bunk, and a love seat sofa-sleeper. The kitchen, living room, and dining room have an open plan, facilitating conversation. Two large leather sofas in the living room provide a comfortable place to gather around the gas stove or the large TV. A large deck extends off the living area where guests can cook on the gas grill when weather permits.
In winter, the greenspace behind our house turns into a wonderful toboggan run. Snow forts, snow men, and snowball fights reign in the open lot next door.
Chocolate House is in Tahoe Donner on Alder Creek Road, which is the main route between Tahoe Donner and Highway 89. In winter, the location is a plus because Alder Creek is one of the first streets in Tahoe Donner plowed in the morning. Our short, level driveway makes it possible to get in and out of the garage as soon as the main road is plowed.
Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Boreal are all within 20-30 minutes drive, weather depending.
In summer, deer, raccoons, and other wildlife inhabit the backyard. Guests may also enjoy the trail along nearby Alder Creek, and numerous other trails throughout the neighborhood. We also provide guest passes to the Tahoe Donner amenities, and the house is near the horse ranch, swimming pools/hot tub/gym, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ski hill, and gold course.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2010
About: We are a family of three, plus a Grandma who frequently travels with us. Jan works for the local gas and electric company, on energy efficiency, solar power, and electric vehicles. Richard is a computer engineer. Laurel is 11, and loves to travel. Grandma Cathy is a retired high school teacher who speaks French and Spanish, in addition to English.
Why Truckee, CA, USA:
When we went in search of a home in the Tahoe area, we kept thinking 'location, location, location.' We chose the Tahoe-Donner subdivision for three reasons: it is close to several major ski resorts; it is located in Truckee so that we could drop of skis, etc. on our way home; we had easy access to Interstate 80. We love the location. We especially love the fact that our roads are plowed early so that we can be on the slopes for the first powder.
