About the property

Expansive 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath With Multiple Living Areas, Hot Tub & Garage

Welcome to the beautiful and serene Tahoe Donner recreation area.

Our expansive multi level home is a dream for entertaining and is close to everything in the Truckee & Lake Tahoe region.

Imagine being just a short drive up the hill from the entertainment and dining mecca of Downtown Truckee, while remaining peacefully isolated in the beautiful wilderness that Tahoe Donner has to offer.

Step inside Edelweiss Tahoe to find hardwood floors, multiple living areas and sleeping spaces spread throughout the home for maximum privacy and capacity for the entire family or group to spend time together.

The private backyard space opens to the forest behind the home and features a manicured lawn, entertaining patio, 6 person hot tub spa, cocktail bar and barbecue.

The large main living room has ample comfortable seating, contains an HDTV gathering area, and is directly adjacent to the main dining table, bar area and kitchen which allows everyone to spend time together and relax.

The sound system pumps out rich musical backdrops while the wonderful natural light pours in from the large windows throughout.

Additionally, there are 2 more living spaces (one of which also has a large HDTV and Foosball table) to allow kids and different groups to spread out and relax in privacy.

The main floor master is well isolated from the other spaces as is the 2nd floor VIP King suite above the connected garage. Both feature private spa inspired full bathroom facilities so everyone can prepare for a wonderful evening on the town, afternoon on the lake, day on the slopes or morning on the course.

Also included with rental of Edelweiss Tahoe is full access to the comprehensive recreational benefits offered by the Tahoe Donner Homeowners Association facilities. Private lakefront access and amenities on nearby Donner Lake include a beach area, boat launch, restaurant, pool, boat rentals and more. Also included is access to the 11 court Tennis complex, golf course and fitness facilities (fees do apply for certain activities).

Whether you’re here to take in all the outdoor activities or just relax in the hot tub at the house, there are literally dozens of ways to delight in the wilderness relaxation afforded at our Edelweiss Tahoe home and the spectacular surroundings.

Nothing else in Tahoe Donner is quite like it and you will love it!

About Richard

We're a family of 5 with 3 boys from the Bay Area. We all have a love of skiing and the outdoors, which makes Tahoe Donner an ideal destination for us as there's something for everyone.

Richard purchased this house in 2009

Why Richard chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

The setting of the Edelweiss property was just perfect and we knew it right when we first saw it. Perched on a hillside it gets wonderful natural sunshine and features a flat driveway entrance from the street which is ideal in the Winter.

Great privacy is afforded on most sides of the house which makes our home a warm and inviting spot to relax with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The house is just up the hill from the Interstate so access is very convenient and everything in Truckee is close, as are all the Tahoe Donner facilities. The lake, skiing, hiking and great dining options are all just quick hop away.

Perfect for extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, tons of space, well stocked, and all of the amenities. This was a great choice for our family for a weekend with the grandparents and aunts. Plenty of space so people can do their own thing: watch movies, read a book, visit, or sit by one of the several gas fireplaces. Huge kitchen that was stocked with everything you need. Tons of games, foosball, and a hot tub. Plus, it's in a great location. We would definitely return.

Big lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this home. We had four adults & five kids. The house is big and very nice - the nicest home in Tahoe we've ever stayed in. Kitchen is well stocked and everything is comfortable. The two master bedrooms are nice for two families. I think the home is big enough for 3 families actually . . . there were 3 living areas!

Awesome Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had multiple familes stay at this amazing home. Perfect in size so that you can have both privacy and family gatherings. Well appointed kitchen (even had a sifter for powdered sugar treats!) and very comfy beds. We ended up having to cut our vacay short because of ominous winter weather reports, but Richard was very helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. Totally took advantage of the hot tub in the snow : )

Beautiful home and great location

  • 4 of 5

The location is great as it is about a 7 min drive from downtown and close to the grocery store Safeway. The neighborhood is nice and the cabin was beautiful! Modern furniture and we loved how there were separate living/play areas around the house. Would definitely stay here again!

Great home for multiple families!

  • 4 of 5

This house is beautifully decorated and really comfortable for several families to enjoy together. The kitchen is really well equipped with everything you would need! In the summer, the upstairs rooms can get hot, but they are equipped with fans. We loved our stay here.
