Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a young family from the Bay Area who have dreamed of owning a home in Tahoe our whole lives. We are so fortunate to raise our 2 small children in a beautiful area like Marin and can't wait to spend more winters and summers in Tahoe Donner!

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Just under 3 hours from our home in the Bay Area, Tahoe Donner (TD) seemed like the perfect location in Tahoe for our family. TD offers everything our children could want in the summer and winter, and when we saw this house (even online!) we knew right away it would be the prefect house for us to enjoy with friends and family. We love the huge wall of windows in the great room, the separate living space on the ground floor and the proximity to Northwoods Clubhouse (featuring a pool w/ waterslide!!) can't be beat! We love sitting out on the deck and grilling in the summer and cozying up to the fire in winter in the great room. The ideal Tahoe pad! It's perfect for all seasons: In winter, it's is within 30 mins from Squaw Valley, Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and all of the area’s other world-class ski resorts. And in the warmer months, we can enjoy nearby championship golf courses like Old Greenwood, Coyote Moon, Tahoe Donner, and Grey's Crossing. Almost any shop or restaurant that you will need is located within one mile of the entrance to Tahoe Donner. Charming old town Truckee, with its many fine restaurants, boutiques, and galleries is just 4 miles away. Lake Tahoe is 15 miles away and Reno is 30 miles to the North East. This is the perfect all-season retreat for both relaxation and adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guest passes provided will allow you to access the private amenities offered by Tahoe Donner for an additional fee.
