About the Property

3 Bedrooms & 3- Full Baths. Room 3 is a Kids Loft Bedroom & Play room.

Perfect for an idealistic summer family vacation.

Donner Lake is a family and boat friendly lake. The complex is just across the street from the lake and the rental comes with access to our walking-distance private beach which has a dock, a on-water gazebo, picnic tables and a BBQ.

Donner Lake is centrally located in the Tahoe National Forest and Recreation area. It is part of the charming town of Truckee which has become a center for outstanding restaurants and good shopping.
Donner Lake is centrally located between the Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Sugar Bowl resorts.

Inside the place:
Brand new luxury hotel-like interior. Lake and tree views from every room. Tahoe-modern interior and furnishings. State-of-art electronics. Cable and Wi-Fi throughout. Bosch and Wolf kitchen appliances. Oversized fireplace. Rain showers, two-person jacuzzi-style jet and bubble bathtub. Cable, flat screen TV in every bedroom room. Luxury linens and bedding. Warm, and peaceful throughout.

Family room:
The family room has an oversized fireplace, large Sony flat screen, cable and internet TV with a coordinating blue tooth compatible sound system, and DVD/Blue-ray player. Lots of comfortable leather seating, games and blankets.

Bedroom Configuration:
Bedroom 1: California King bed, flat screen TV, blue ray speakers
Bedroom 2: Queen bed, flat screen TV
Kids loft room: 4 twin beds. Low ceiling. Games, Flat screen TV and DVD,/Blue-ray player.

Master bath: Integrated into master suite. Rain shower and oversized jet/bubble bath. Separate toilet room.
Second bedroom bath: Deep soaking tub and shower combo. Just across the hall from the bedroom.
Bathroom #3: Rain shower. Custom stone finishes. Serves as the bathroom for the main floor and as a separate bathroom for the kids.

Top of the line appliances, and kitchen tools. New, modern, dinnerware, silverware, serving pieces, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, separate red and white wine glasses, cookware, bake ware, mixing bowls, measuring cups, cheese grater, peeler, cooking utensils, coffee maker and tea pot. Beaters, blender, waffle maker, fondue set, slow and French oven cookers.

Garage and Parking:
Detached garage with space for one car. Parking lot room for additional cars. Limit 2 additional cars. If you are taking a few days break between activities, the garage has room for you to store your gear.

This place is great for you if you want:
-a luxury hotel-like atmosphere, and want to be lakeside during the summer months. No luxury hotels exist on Donner Lake.
-evening dinners lakeside while the kids continue to play or fish as the sun sets.
-to avoid the extra expenses such as the daily resort fees, tips, and countless meals, beverages and snacks out
-more space and privacy than a high-end multi-room resort suite at a significantly less expense
-a choice of all of the local outdoor activities and, in the winter, your choice of ski resorts, instead of being relegated to the one where your hotel is located.
-letting the kids eat dinner in- dressed in their PJs
-drinking your own wine and lounging around in comfortable clothes with family and friends

Donner Lake is known for its beautiful setting, lake recreation and central location between the Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Sugar Bowl ski resorts. It is about 5 miles to Truckee’s business and restaurants. Truckee is has a wide variety of upscale shops and many restaurants- from family friendly to the most up-to-date, upscale restaurants in the North Tahoe area. Although in the wintertime, skiing/boarding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and hiking are the most popular local activities, the outdoor activity options are unlimited. Hiking, rock climbing, snowmobiling, winter fishing, sleigh rides, dog sled rides, local sightseeing and touring are also popular.

In the summer, Donner Lake is a favorite destination for boating, water skiing, wave runner, fishing, swimming, and much more. Spend your day on the beach, on the water, on a bike ride around the lake or hike the lake and its nearby mountains. The nearby Truckee River provides some great fly-fishing opportunities. From Boats to bikes- Almost everything, for every type of activity can be rented from local businesses once you are here. Guides and lessons can also be sourced so you can finally take that fly-fishing or rock-climbing lesson you have always wanted.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The owners love the Tahoe area and all of the fun, healthy family recreation it provides both in the summer and winter.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
This property was purchased and renovated to be state-of-art in energy efficiency, electronics and appliances with dual purpose in mind. We wanted to be able to enjoy Tahoe in hassle-free, luxury like we were staying in a penthouse, timeshare or suite at one of the top local resorts. For years, we stayed at the top hotels in the area and found that staying at a resort limited our options for places to ski, restaurants and activities. In the summertime, we found ourselves wishing for lake views and better access to all of the summertime lake activities. We searched to find just the right house or condo on and near both Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. A 45 minute shorter commute to the Bay Area, better access to our favorite ski resorts, warmer and more family-friendly waters made Donner Lake our first choice. After three plus years of searching, we found this property and this unit. We envisioned it being brought up to date while also highlighting its really great 1972 post-modern architectural structure. We believe we have done just that are are thrilled to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
-Everything is new, clean and top of the line. -Beautiful views -15-20 minutes to ski resorts. Sugarbowl, 9 miles, Squaw Valley 17 miles, Northstar 16 miles. -Private Beach with chairs, toys, boat dock, gazebo and charcoal BBQ amenities. -Walk to lake and boat Launch -Quick, easy access to Truckee restaurants, grocery stores and shops
