About Janet Peterson

We are retired now but our Tahoe Donner cabin was purchased as a retreat for our busy family. We still live a busy life on a small ranch in the Sierra foothills where daily chores are unrelenting. Our cabin is designed for easy living, comfort and no fuss. It depicts the lifestyle we enjoy and hope you do too.

Our family is passionate about animals of all kinds. Our property allows us to accommodate animals that need a rural environment. To date 8 goats, 2 donkeys, 4 horses, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 5 chickens and one button quail have made their home with us and these are only the domestic ones. Our wildlife visitors include an adolescent bear, dozens does with new fawns and one snake for rodent control.

Talk to us about animals, the outdoors or the challenges of a rural lifestyle and you will know everything about us.

Janet Peterson purchased this house in 2009

Why Janet Peterson chose Truckee

The location is all about fun and convenience!

We love the year-round activities offered by Tahoe Donner and we use all of them. Winter skiing, especially for kids, is easy to get to but Squaw Valley, Northstar, Homewood, Kirkwood and Heavenly Valley are nearby.

Donner Lake is minutes away and has a private beach and marina for Tahoe Donner quests. This lake is wonderful for fishing, water skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, and the sunsets are wonderful.

The town of Truckee is 'just down the hill' where restaurants and shopping are wonderful.

The Tahoe Donner community offers multiple swimming pools, workout facility, golf course and club house restaurant, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, and summer camps for kids of all ages.

What makes this house unique

We have loads of board and card games for the kids and two separate outdoor decks for enjoying your morning coffee, afternoon naps or evening bbqs. The split level floor plan keeps the living room well separated from the family/activity room so that peace and quite can be offered upstairs while movies, games, and snacks are underway downstairs
