About the Property
Expansive 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath With Multiple Living Areas, Hot Tub & Garage
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 the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
