Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a family of five with three lively boys who all love skiing and playing spy games in the forest behind our home. We live in the Bay Area and come up as often possible.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
A cosy, relaxed and family home, we liked its layout, with the high ceilings and access to the beautiful outside space. The area is quiet, calm yet five minutes away from the Tahoe Donner facilities which include swimming pools,hot tubs golf course, tennis courts, restaurants and pub all accessible to renters for $8 per person.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A child friendly area, lots of adventure opportunities all around us for the kids. The wood burning stove is a big plus for us, to relax and feel cozy at night. The open area outside is also the area we enjoy most about our home
