Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Our whole family loves sports and the outdoors. We rented cabins many times in Tahoe Donner over the years and we enjoyed all of it - Donner Lake, the tennis center, cross-country and downhill skiing and - being a competitive swimming family - that heated lap pool at Trout Creek. When we decided to buy a home in the mountains, Tahoe Donner was the only true choice. It is great for both winter and summer. We look forward to fun times and wonderful memories here and we hope you will too.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Tahoe Donner offers everything you could want summer or winter, for outdoor recreation and relaxation. Truckee with it's fun bars, restaurants and shops is right around the corner. A little further afield and you are in the Old West at Nevada City for Chili cook-offs, taking the railroad, touring the Comstock or, exploring the various lakes and towns in the area. And of course Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe are accessible by a lovely bike path. It is a true year-round vacation destination.
