About the Property

The Züri Haus is located in the prime location of Tahoe Donner.

GORGEOUS HOME, IMMACULATE CONDITION AND SPECTACULAR LOCATION!

NOTE: THE PICTURES AND DESCRIPTION DO NOT DO THIS BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN HOME JUSTICE. THIS HOME IS IN THE MOST DESIRABLE LOCATION IN TAHOE DONNER - JUST STEPS AWAY - TROUT CREEK REC CENTER, GOURMET DELI, BBQ & CONVENIENCE STORE, THE LODGE RESTAURANT AND PUB & TAHOE DONNER GOLF COURSE.

Luxurious three-story mountain vacation home. Solid, high end construction, beautiful finishes. This is a professionally maintained vacation home - not just a worn out, mountain house for rent.

Enjoy this beautiful mountain retreat with the following amenities:

• Expansive three story home with soaring open beam, wood plank 20’+ ceilings

• Hydronically heated stone floors throughout - walk inside barefoot and be cozy while the outside is a winter wonderland

• Main Master Suite + Walk-in closet, heated stone floors in master bath, dual sinks, large shower and jetted tub

• Entertain dozens of guests or feed an army with granite bar top and open floor plan

• High-end Euro-style tilting/full open windows for fresh air in all weather situations

• Extensive granite throughout - high end solid construction - built in 2006

• Hydronically heated extra deep 2 car garage - porch overhang and level driveway for easiest winter access

• Major amenities across the street - Trout Creek Rec Center and Golf + much more

• Health club, pools, deli, BBQ burgers, bar & fantastic restaurant, convenience store, playground, BBall courts, golf, sledding across the street just steps away!

• Plus just minutes away (driving): tennis, downhill and x-country skiing, private Donner Beach, boat and paddle board rentals, fishing, horseback riding, trails, mountain biking

• IDEAL STRATEGIC SKI LOCATION: 15-20 minute drive to Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine and Sugar Bowl - visit them all! Don’t get locked in to just one resort.

• Absolutely no shortage of things to do in both the winter and summer for kids of ALL ages

• Huge back deck off the 2nd floor Great Room - Massive back doors swing open wide for fresh mountain air

• Stone gas fireplace - fire it up in seconds! no fuss!

• Flat screen TV’s throughout - view from bedrooms or cozy sofas

• Five minutes to old town Truckee and grocery, mountain and hardware stores

• Dozens of alpine lakes within a short drive (Donner, Tahoe, etc. etc.)

• Avoid Tahoe lake traffic during busy times - minutes from Hwy 80 access

• Near but not on Northwoods Blvd., one of the primary Tahoe Donner streets for priority snow clearing during the winter - don’t get trapped or snowed in like so many other Tahoe Donner locations!

• Easy, short, perfectly level driveway makes it a cinch in the icy snow. Snow clearing service for driveway included in the winter. Many other houses in Tahoe have sloped driveways in the winter making parking "exciting".

• Many other amenities including stereo, telephone, laundry, iron w/board, soaps, paper goods and all basic cleaning supplies.

• Just perfect, perfect, perfect.


With the unique combination and convenience of all the Tahoe Donner amenities, this premium vacation house is perfect for a single or multi-family vacation during any season.

In the chef-inspired kitchen, there's everything you could possibly want - large custom refrigerator, gas range, oven, common spices, ample counter space, champagne and martini glasses, a rice cooker, lots of platters, premium pans - both non-stick and stainless. Crepe pan, waffle iron, griddle + lots more. Lots of standard utensils.

In the great room, let the adults enjoy the LCD flat screen, have a cocktail party or BBQ out on the deck while the kids hang out in the downstairs suite with board games, video games, TV or DVD movies.

Grab a book from the shelf, and curl up on the large day bed with a nice cup of tea or coffee for a quite afternoon. Use the Nespresso coffee maker and milk frother for an exceptional latte or espresso at anytime.

On sunny days, take to the outdoor deck and enjoy the pine tree-lined scenery! There's a gas grill for summer barbecues.

After a day of skiing, hiking, or biking, you'll have a good night's sleep here in one of the three luxurious bedrooms. And while this amazing Lake Tahoe vacation rental will definitely provide lots of great memories, you'll have so much to do here in the popular Lake Tahoe region!

This historic town of Truckee boasts shops, galleries, and restaurants - foodies will be sure to find a hidden gem for a memorable meal out. In the summer, make the short drive to Kings Beach to play on the sand, take a lake cruise, or just enjoy the sights of crystal blue Lake Tahoe. And just a few miles east, across the Nevada state line, you'll find casinos like Crystal Bay for more entertainment options.

The property is part of the Tahoe-Donner Homeowners Association. Guests (for a nominal fee) will have access to the private community pools and spas, tennis courts and clubhouse amenities as well as the private beach and boating marina at Donner Lake. As part of your rental you will have a discount at Tahoe Donner's horseback riding stables and golf course. Enjoy beach chairs down at Donner lake or take a short drive to beautiful Lake Tahoe. Additionally, Tahoe Donner is home to many other community activities including cross country skiing, local downhill skiing (5 minutes away), sledding, rafting and hiking. It is also convenient to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Boreal, and Northstar ski resorts and quaint old town Truckee with it's many restaurants and shops.

Notes:
1. Description of property is subject to change at any time without notice.
2. This property is conveniently located within a minute's walk to a restaurant, bar, golf, deli and health club but also close to Northwoods Blvd - one of the access roads for the development. Expect some road noise as a result.
3. There are enough beds for 12 people but the house will be pretty full with 12. Hopefully everyone gets along :)



Some RULES :)

1. Keep this home nice for the next guest - please tread lightly
2. This is a no shoe house - bring slippers or walk bear foot on the heated floors
3. NO SMOKING INSIDE - USE THE COVERED DECK INSTEAD - OR BETTER YET - QUIT! :)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Andrea and Robb have lived in Northern California for most of their lives. As the children of immigrants, we're living the American dream as our parents had hoped for both of us. We have a small, growing family in the foothills about 1 hour from the Tahoe area. We're both very excited to make this property available and ensure that you'll make memories here that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
After checking out dozen and dozens of homes for sale, this house was simply the best on the market. From the top quality construction, soaring ceilings, tasteful design and fixtures, this house immediately stood out as exceptional. As with all real estate - location, location, location was the real selling point. The best of the Tahoe Donner amenities are steps away, across the street. All the other amenities are minutes away plus access to the very best North Shore has to offer without the crush of traffic around Lake Tahoe during busy times. It's just perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Exceptional location. Steps to the pub, Truckee's best restaurant, deli, store, golf and rec center. Easy access during snowy times. Avoid long traffic jams around Tahoe. Easy Hwy 80 access.
