About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy all that Tahoe Donner has to offer in this exceptionally comfortable and inviting mountain retreat. This 3+ bedroom, 2.5 bath mountain home is uniquely well-configured and well-constructed. Spend days on end relaxing in the home or use it as base camp for the dozens of activities that Lake Tahoe -- and Tahoe Donner -- have to offer.

You will immediately be struck by the home's vaulted ceilings and open floor plan, which are ideal for entertaining and large family gatherings. The great room and first floor master both have easy access to the outdoor living space, which makes the home feel even more spacious. Relax in front of the fireplace and stunning river-rock hearth or soak up the sun on the large south-facing deck great for outdoor grilling and dining.

All the bedrooms boast queen beds. The main floor master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom including a jetted bathtub. A large walk-in closet can serve as sleeping quarters for an infant or toddler. Upstairs there are two bedrooms that share a bathroom right outside their doors. The loft has a queen-sized futon bed so the home comfortably sleeps eight. We also provide a crib and highchair as we welcome families with children. The kitchen features high-end appliances, granite counter tops, a center island with seating, and is fully stocked! The dining table seats 8 and is perfect for long, lingering meals.

Our home is located in a uniquely special setting on one of the most desired streets in the entire Tahoe Donner community and overlooks the Tahoe Donner meadow, a 50+ acre wildlife habitat. It is the ideal setting for kids of all ages to explore the outdoors within sight of the house. In the winter you can even set out snowshoeing or cross-country skiing directly from the back yard!

It is a 10 minute walk to the Northwoods Clubhouse which includes a tennis complex, outdoor pool, playground, and kids rec center / pizza restaurant. The home appeals to an outdoors-loving, active family, two families, or three to four couples. Guests have access to all Tahoe Donner amenities at significantly discounted rates. See website for a complete list.

Our home is near the entrance of Tahoe Donner and only 5 minutes from downtown shopping and restaurants, 10+ minutes to ski area resorts including Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine Meadows and Northstar at Tahoe.

Keyless entry and high-speed internet make this home even more convenient. It is sunny, handsome, and welcoming. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in San Francisco where Lissa works as an Oncology Nurse Practitioner and Chad works in a software start-up. While neither of us are native Californians, we moved here as soon as we could! We enjoy just about everything outdoors and have been die-hard weekend warriors in North Lake Tahoe for the last decade. Now with a toddler, we are enjoying Tahoe from an entirely different vantage point. More sledding and sand castles, less skiing and mountain biking. We still get up to our home 1-2x most months and love being there just as much.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
After two years of looking and touring over 100 properties, the moment we walked into this house we knew it was the one. It's location is remarkable as it backs up to Tahoe Donner meadow. The home's design takes full advantage of this setting with fluid indoor/outdoor living space, vaulted windows, and an open floor plan. Of course, it goes without saying, that Tahoe Donner offers the complete Lake Tahoe experience. It has all the necessary amenities and activities to make it a great year-round family vacation destination.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
10 minute walk to the Northwoods Clubhouse which includes the tennis center, outdoor pool, kids' camps, playground, and pizza pub.
