Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We purchased this house for winter fun, skiing, and enjoying the snow. We had no idea how amazing the summer at Tahoe Donner was going to be. We love sharing the house with our friends, playing a late game of pool, reading by the fire, dining al fresco, and napping in the hammock. After 15 years of non-stop fun and rest, the kids are grown and our usage is lower, which makes it a good time to share this with others.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Our Tahoe Dacha (Russian for a vacation home) provides a place to escape, rest, recharge, and play. The house is bright and sunny, it is never too hot or too cold. It is a great place to just hand out, sleep late, enjoy the mountain air, and walk in the pine forest. Turns out the tap water is one of the purest in the entire country and it tastes great!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tahoe Donner is a premier destination, located in Nevada County's Tahoe Forest, with both winter and summer amenities. Our Dacha is located on a main neighborhood road, which means in winter, significantly easier access, even during snow storms.
