About the Property

3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Bathrooms, 2 Decks, Flat Driveway, Mountain Views

Welcome to the Aloha Cabin! This newly remodeled three bedroom + loft, three bathroom house is conveniently located within Tahoe Donner, is very comfortably furnished and has a expansive backyard that is perfect for outdoor play and has been called “the best sledding hill” in Tahoe Donner. Plus, of course, gain access to all of the year-round amenities that Tahoe Donner has to offer including swimming pools, golf, and tennis.

Each floor has a bedroom and full bathroom, which is great for limiting noise and maximizing privacy. On the first floor, the bedroom houses two sets of bunkbeds (four twin beds), and the bathroom has a shower. There is also a bonus space with a comfortable couch, television and foosball table. This bedroom and bonus space make for a perfect kids’ hangout where they can be as loud as they want without disturbing those on the main floor. There are doors at the top and bottom of the stairway the keep any noise from traveling. At night you can put the kids to bed and then hang out in the living room on the main floor as late as you want without worrying about waking up the little ones. Nothing puts a damper on a vacation than being woken up too early by excited kids or having to be quiet and whisper your conversations at night after the kids go to bed. This won’t happen in this house!

The kitchen and living room are on the second floor. The second floor bedroom offers a queen size bed and walk-in closet, and the bathroom has a bathtub with jet streams, perfect for relaxing after a long day in the outdoors or on the slopes.

The cozy kitchen is newly remodeled, and you will find all of the necessities to make a gourmet meal. It is fully stocked with dishes and flatware, pots and pans, cooking utensils, cookie sheets, muffin pans, rice cooker, toaster oven, toaster, wine glasses, coffee maker, French press and more.

The living room has a solid wood dining table that comfortably seats seven, and the kitchen bar seats an additional three. A top-grain leather sectional and seats round out the perfect conversation, TV watching, or relaxation spot. A flat screen TV offers dozens of cable channels and there is WIFI throughout the house.

The third floor hosts a bedroom with queen bed, a bathroom with large shower and a loft with two twin beds and another comfy conversation nook. All of the furniture is in mint condition—no lumpy beds or old linens here.

Outside, there are two large decks. The front deck has teak furniture with seating for 10 and a gas grill, and the back deck offers a relaxing, private atmosphere ideal for viewing the forest and stargazing. The yard offers plenty of at-home adventure opportunities year-round for the kids and an amazing sledding hill for hours of entertainment. (Sleds are in the garage.) The backyard connects to a large wooded greenbelt that is perfect for hiking and exploring. There is a one-car garage and a carport with parking for at least four or more vehicles. The driveway is completely flat, a major plus for the winter months. There are also a washer and dryer for longer stays.

The home is very conveniently located in lower Tahoe Donner in Truckee, allowing you to get to all of your destinations quickly. You will have access to all of the Tahoe Donner amenities (with a small fee) including three swimming pools (one open year-round), fitness center, bocce ball, archery, and the members-only beach club and boat lunch on Donner Lake. Plus, you will have access to the Tahoe Donner ski area, cross country ski center, golf course, tennis center, driving range and equestrian center. Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows, Boreal, and Squaw Valley are all within a 30 minute drive as well as the Truckee River and Lake Tahoe.

Throughout the home you will find little touches of Aloha, from the bright fish artwork to the starfish on the dining table. Whether you want all the activity that the water and slopes have to offer or you want a relaxing retreat in the woods, make the Aloha Cabin your home away from home, and be prepared to create memories that will last for years.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have lived in the Bay Area since 1996 and have had the fortune of visiting Tahoe Donner with our family over the past several years. We wanted to spread our love of TD by sharing our home with others. Some of our family’s best memories have been created in TD, whether hiking in search of the elusive sugar pinecones, kayaking on Donner Lake, snorkeling at Speedboat Beach, cross country skiing in TD, fishing for crawdads, floating down the Truckee River, or simply playing a game of tag in the backyard. We have furnished the home with all the comforts that we enjoy and hope that you love the Aloha Cabin as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We fell in love with the humongous backyard. It is the best combination of shaded flat ground (large enough for a pickup game of football) with a perfect upward sloping hill. It’s been called the best sledding hill in Tahoe Donner. Our children and their friends have spent countless hours exploring the greenbelt, tossing footballs and playing soccer, creating amazing mountain bike tracks, sledding and snowshoeing and playing hide and seek. There are endless possibilities when you have both flat and hilly ground to choose your own adventure. We also love having two decks. The front deck is perfect for al fresco dining and is an extension of the living/dining room. The back deck is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or star-gazing at night. It also overlooks the spacious backyard where you can watch your children play.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is an amazing amount of privacy inside the Aloha Cabin. This is especially important for larger families or if you are vacationing with more than one family. Not only does each floor have its own bedroom and bathroom but the soundproof double doors that separate the first floor bonus room and bunkroom from the rest of the home create a distinct space where kids can play as loudly as they like while the adults can lounge in peace in the second floor living room. When it’s bedtime you can put the early sleepers to sleep on the first floor and never have to worry about being too loud as you continue your festivities in the rest of the house. Practically speaking, the flat circular driveway and garage are immeasurably helpful during the winter. There is also a covered carport for a second vehicle. No need to waste time in the morning scraping snow off your cars before heading for the slopes.
