About Max Schaefer
After 15 years of owning the Schaefer Haus, I've finally decided to share it with the world. I'm a bay area resident for the last 25 years, and have always loved the mountains. I have the home set up for myself, friends and family, but putting a new roof on this year leads me to think it's time to share the place with the public. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Max Schaefer purchased this House in 1998
Why Max Schaefer chose Truckee
Although I originally bought this home as a ski house, I find we enjoy it just as much or more in the summer. Just three hours drive from the San Francisco area, the Schaefer Haus is in the wonderful Tahoe Donner neighborhood. It's an association with great recreational facilities, a top notch golf course, a private beach on Donner Lake, and a short drive to Lake Tahoe. Most importantly, you are within 30 minutes of several great ski resorts, including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugarbowl, and Northstar. When I come here, I bring my greyhounds, so it is a dog-friendly home, and your well-behaved and clean dog(s) are welcome too.
What makes this House unique
The first thing you'll notice is the fresh mountain air, the giant pine trees, and the feel of being in the mountains. But then you'll notice the comfortable home, the modern conveniences like internet and cable, the hot tub, and the proximity to limitless adventure!

This is our second year to stay at the cabin with our children and grandchildren. All of us had a fabulous time! The cabin is so inviting and relaxing...and enough room for all of us. Just walking out the patio doors we entered a beautiful open space full of snow and fun for the little ones. We spent hours sledding and building snowmen. Back inside, the kitchen is good sized and complete with everything needed to cook and feed a family of hungry people. The barbecue is very large and we enjoyed try-tip that was grilled outside on the snowy deck. We never needed to leave for any meals. In the evening we enjoyed the hot tub out on the deck, sitting under the stars and enjoying the scenery. We are already looking at our calendars to determine when we will return. It will be soon!
Best Christmas Ever!
My family and I stayed for 4 nights during the Christmas holiday. The house was warm ,comfortable and very welcoming. The owner is very generous and was available for questions or information. We look forward to staying there again.
The stay was very great love everything about it my grandkids had a blast it wasn't that far from the beautiful donner lake we will be back
Cozy , comfy well stocked
Good communication from Max. We loved this place and would come back again. Deck is fab, hot tub awesome! Quiet comfortable and warm feeling
Nice home , comfortable and well suited for our needs
Nice home, suited my wife and I very well . Dog friendly donut was perfect. Max responded to our needs in a timely manner.
Our family of three generations and a dog had a wonderful time at Max's comfortable home.
The house is laid out well, open and with a very workable kitchen. We spent most of our time out on the large deck, in the hot tub and just enjoying the forest ambience. Even though other homes are nearby, it feels private. The location was great, and we appreciated our access to the private beach and pools. Max was quick to respond to minor difficulties.
