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.

We live in San Francisco bay area. We bought this house as a vacation home, as we like skiing, hiking, biking and boating in Lake Tahoe area.
Zhong purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Zhong chose Truckee
Lake Tahoe area is always an attraction year around and the house is conveniently located close to historical Truckee downtown, major ski resorts, bike trails, lakes, freeways and restaurants.
What makes this Chalet unique
There is a big tree goes through the balcony, it is like a tree house.

Great owner, place and location

Nice and Cozy w/large common area
just like my title says, nice and cozy with a large common area and kitchen.
Great weekend get away!
Good sized house in great location!
This house was perfect for our group of 6. Enough space and pretty well equipped kitchen for all our cooking needs. Location was perfect for going to Northstar as it was just a 10-15 minute drive. There is a convenience store less than 5 minutes away at the entrance to the residential area. Truckee close by for any specific shopping needs. Zhong has great communication and replies very quickly. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks!
Thanks Jamie for your nice comment.
Welcome back at any time.
Great, comfortable house close to Truckee.
We were four middle-aged guys up for three days of golf in Tahoe in August. The house was very clean and nicely furnished. Everything was set up for our arrival and the keypad code was given to us a few days ahead so we could get in at our own convenience. We grilled steaks one night and found all the basics to pull that off nicely and found a good restaurant for the second night. The courses at Tahoe Donner and Northstar were close and fit our budgets and abilities. I'd definitely stay here again for another summer trip or a couple of days on the slopes in winter.
50th B-Day ski trip
This was the perfect house for our needs.
