Property description

The Log House is a gorgeous privately owned 5,250 sq. ft. log home in Truckee, CA constructed in 2005. The house is located in the Tahoe Donner Association at one of the highest home sites available ... 7,250 ft. near the Glacier Point trail portal within walking distance from the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area. NEW - 10/1/2016!!! The house now has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, plus a loft with a very comfortable hide-a-bed which can be easily used as a 5th bedroom. A 3-car garage keeps your cars safe from our incredible winter snow storms!

The Log House itself is loaded with amenities and must be seen to be believed. The Great Room has 25 ft. floor-to-ceiling windows and gas fireplace to compliment the immaculate views. The kitchen is fully loaded with stainless steel appliances -- refrigerator, 48 inch range with 2 ovens, built-in microwave, dishwasher and coffee/cappuccino machine. The bar & rec room area has its own refrigerator and dishwasher, another massive fireplace, wine cellar, steam shower, and dry sauna in addition to a highly functional work out area with Olympic weights and a stair master. The top rear deck has beautiful stainless steel barbeque, fire pit, two propane heaters, ample seating and a specially designed area for the brand NEW 10-person jacuzzi that is sitting over 30 ft. above the ground and perfect for enjoying the massive views or the night stars.

The sleeping arrangements are as follows:
* Master Bedroom (king)
* Guest Bedroom I (king)
* Guest Bedroom II (queen)
* Guest Bedroom III (king) - NEW!! on 10/1/2016
* Loft (queen hide-a-bed - unusually comfortable)

We also have a very nice queen air bed for the last couple to join the group ... or the kids! The Master Bedroom has its own gas fireplace and opens up to the top deck only footsteps from the jacuzzi. Both guest bedrooms open up onto the lower deck area so that all guests enjoy the same massive views from the comfort of their sleeping quarters.

This home is not only defined by the massive 24 inch plus logs but the incredible 180 degree views of Mt. Rose, the Truckee Meadow, Northstar Ski resort, the Pacific Crest, and Donner Pass from its two rear deck areas.

Guests of The Log House enjoy all the member benefits of the Tahoe Donner Association, including the Downhill Ski Area, Cross Country Center, Equestrian Center, Campground, 18-hole Golf Course, Recreation Center, Clubhouse and Beach Club Marina via two Transferable Guest Cards (good for 8 people).

Lake Tahoe is only 20 miles away from the property and is internationally known for offering visitors a bonanza of recreation, restaurants, and attractions. With so much to do you may want to visit the Official Lake Tahoe Visitors Bureau websites for the information you need to plan your vacation to the Lake Tahoe / Truckee area. Between the property and Lake Tahoe you have multiple world-class ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. Locally, within 10 miles you have multiple smaller lakes accessible for boating, fishing, and water sports including Lake Donner, Boca Lake, and Stampede Lake. Outdoor recreation activities in this area are endless ... so come enjoy!

This is snow country so make sure you plan for you 4-wheel drive vehicle if coming up in the winter season. The severity of weather from the Town of Truckee up to the house can change radically in the winter ... so it is very important to be prepared!

This is no ordinary vacation rental ... the logs, the views, and the amenities of this area must be experienced in order to be fully appreciated. So come join us for a vacation in the mountains you'll never forget!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The owner personally designed and built this beautiful home. The logs are Northern White Pine brought into the area from the Toronto, Canada. Eight semi-trucks were required to bring all of the logs into the US. The house is accented with beautiful granite, slate, and tile work, two log staircases, and an amazing salvaged wood floor made of 2.5 inch thick, 27 inch wide and 30 feet long planks cut from century old timbers recovered from a canal in Canada.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
This property is defined by its AWESOME VIEWS!!! We are on the top of Tahoe Donner at over 7,250 ft. elevation. On clear days the view extends beyond 50 miles -- over Mt. Rose, Northstar, the Truckee meadow, the Pacific Crest and even Heavenly in South Lake Tahoe!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
NOTHING compares to the warmth of a Log Home with amazing fireplaces and incredible views on that crisp winter morning or lazy summer day! The decks and hot tub area allow you to gaze 'down' upon Truckee and the surrounding Sierras both day and night -- spectacular!!
