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.
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:
