About Sharon Vaughan

A former long-time Apple employee, Sharon is a mother of three who realized that her family's amazing memories in their Tahoe vacation home should be shared with others.

Sharon Vaughan purchased this house in 2001

Why Sharon Vaughan chose Truckee

My family purchased this vacation home in 2001 because we loved to ski and spend family vacations in Tahoe. We loved the Tahoe Donner Ski Area when the kids were learning to ski and the convenience of a 5 minute drive. We like the convenience of Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine resorts are so close. We live in the Bay Area so it's a quick trip to the mountains and the relaxation of a beautiful home. The amenities are exceptional too!

What makes this house unique

This home provides a tranquil peace from the moment you enter the door. Upstairs the great room combines a mountain home spaciousness with fun game table and kitchen conversation. You can be cooking in the kitchen, chat with friends sitting at the counter bar stools, and watch the fire sparkle in the fireplace. Amemenities galore - there are lots of activities to choose from. In the backyard is a level lot to play in snow in the winter and create your own sledding hills, use our provided sleds. In the summertime, sit on the deck and watch the golfers go by from the backyard decks. Make a tee time and join in the fun!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. This cabin is quite spacious and well taken care of. The beds were very comfortable. My kids did not want to leave, well none of us did! We enjoyed the basketball hoop and the long driveway was perfect for corn hole and can jam. The owner was attentive to our call about working the fireplace.We would definitely stay here again.
