Car: Recommended

Every season Tahoe Donner offers its own unique opportunities for outdoor activities and indoor indulgence.

We are close to all the popular ski resorts, have our own private beach at Donner Lake and have world class restaurants to enjoy. You name it, I'm sure we've got it!

Our property backs to the Tahoe National Forest with miles and miles of hiking, mountain biking and snow shoeing right out your door. It is secluded and quiet, except of course for the squirrels, birds, lizards, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Truckee is very family friendly and welcome visitors. Enjoy wine tasting, shopping, great food, concerts, outdoor movie night, WII night, Bingo and various festivals. If you like history, we have a great museum and great stories of the 'Donner Party' and their fateful journey in 1846. Perhaps outdoors is more your style, we have moderate to extreme snow skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, mountain biking, hiking, water skiing/boating, paddle boats, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, para sailing, windsurfing, crawdad fishing, fishing in general and just plain old tubing down the river or swimming in our two private pools. Oh, did I mention a full recreation facility with saunas, exercise classes, weight room, pool, tennis courts and if you are into golf, two great golf courses! In addition, equestrian center with pony rides, trail rides, BBQ s and all kinds of activities as well. I could go on, but you get the idea.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: In the early 90's my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I spent every moment we could driving up to Tahoe from the Bay Area to mountain bike, ski, hike, swim and eat. In 1994, he got down on one knee and proposed to me at Gar Woods Restaurant (one of our favorites). I can't say for sure, but we think both kids were 'started' in Tahoe. The last 19 years are filled with endless, incredible memories of Tahoe and we are not done yet! We are thrilled to offer our home to you in hopes you will have the same love for Tahoe and experiences we have had and are continuing to have.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We looked for 'our home' for a very long time and when we finally walked into this house we immediately felt like we were home. It is so cozy, open, comfortable, modern, but woodsy and you feel as though you are standing in the middle of the National Forest with absolutely no one else around. Sitting in the big room and looking out the window you can see Northstar! Out of all the towns in North Shore (and we have done them all), Truckee is by far the most friendly, helpful and community-oriented town with tons of shopping, a huge variety of different restaurants, wine bars, beer bars and ice cream shops! The location of the house is awesome. It is located on the lower part of the mountain, so easy in and easy out during heavy snow periods and we keep the streets and driveway plowed daily.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I hope you can see from the pictures that this home is cozy, inviting, open and very private. It is decorated with a modern, but mountain flare with all the amenities you could want. We have a heat lamp on the porch and super warm, soft blankets so you can hang out on the porch late at night. We have provided toiletries, hair dryers, curling irons, laundry detergent, iron with board, extra chairs, and more. We have rented homes from many people over the years and know how important it is to feel safe and welcomed. I know once you walk through the door, you will feel the weight of the world taken off your shoulders and what we like to call 'The Tahoe Brain' kicks in. You forget the real world. Nothing else matters but where you are at that given time, with your family or friends and no responsibilities! Welcome!
