Property description

Our Tahoe Donner retreat is a four bedroom (3 upstairs and family/bunkroom downstairs), three bath home constructed in 2006. It is fully furnished and comfortably sleeps 11 people. Features include a gourmet kitchen, great room with wood fireplace, dining room with seating for 10, laundry room, 2 flatscreen TVs with collection of DVDs, Wii console, wireless DSL, outdoor BBQ and a large garage. After a day of fun, you can jump into the hot tub on the deck for some relaxation. The security system is turned on/off by our Tahoe Donner caretaker.

In the open space beyond the backyard, there is a long gentle sledding hill perfect for kids in the winter and a 'treehouse' in the summer.

It is convenient to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar ski resorts and the quaint downtown of Truckee with it's many restaurants and shops. Truckee River bike path allows for 6.8 miles of walking/riding from Squaw Valley to Tahoe City. The Truckee Rivery Legacy Trail is a 2.5 mile flat walking/biking trail located at Truckee River Regional Park. An ice skating rink is there in the winter.

The property is part of the Tahoe-Donner Homeowners Association. Guests (for a nominal fee) will have access to the private community pool and spa, tennis courts and the clubhouse amenities and dining, golf at a discounted rate and a private beach and boating marina at Donner Lake. Additionally, Tahoe Donner is home to many other community activities including horse back riding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, sledding and hiking.

Please note that the driveway is graded. A snow removal service upkeeps the driveway in the winter but if there is snowfall, then chains or 4 wheel drive may be required.

Car: Necessary

Tahoe Donner is a great place for romantics and for families as well. During the summer, there are wonderful summer camps, tennis and swim lessons for the children which allows for adults to enjoy other activities like cycling, paddle boarding or just relaxing! During the winter, you can snowshoe and cross country ski nearby. Tahoe Donner ski hill is great for beginners.
