This house is an ideal weekend getaway, or short term vacation destination for 2 -3 families to enjoy various activities in the Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake area.
There are 2 upstairs bedrooms and 2 downstair bedrooms (3 queen beds, 2 bunk beds), It can sleep 10 total. The upstair bathroom has a shower, it can be used exclusively for master bedroom, the downstair bathroom has shower over tub.
This is a 2 stories chalet style house with balcony around the house and a huge sequoia tree goes through the right balcony, which makes it like a tree house.
The house has a large and bright living room, with 3-seat and 2-seat lounge and a leather sofa chair. There is a formal dining area and a bar with 3 bar stools. The kitchen is full of utensils, cookwares and small appliances, such as microwave, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, hot water dispenser, portable water filter, etc.
The house is heated by central gas heater in the winter, and there is also a brand new EPA certified wood stove in the living area with a lot of firewood stored in the garage, The wood stove is EPA certified with high efficiency (74%), it produces very little smoke (4g/hr) through chimney and leave very little ash. It is really joyful to sit next to the wood stove in the winter.
There is a portable air-conditioner, but I never felt I need to use it in the summer. As at the elevation of ~7000 feet, the temperature in the summer is often below 50F at night. And there are ceiling fans in the living room and some bedrooms to help ventilation if needed.
The house is within short walking distance to Bald Mountain bike trail it is very popular for mountain biking. Also if you are visiting during summer, don’t miss the 3 miles long Truckee river rafting starting from Tahoe City.
