About the owner: Dana and I have four boys ranging in age from 11 to 28. We love the outdoors and spend as much time as possible outside on some slope, trail or beach hiking, skiing, riding and playing. We live in Marin and spend as much time as possible at our new place in Tahoe Donner and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. Cheers, Scott, Dana and the Boys
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We have been coming to this area for years and have always dreamed of having a place of our own here in the mountains. We chose Tahoe Donner because it is such a great community with so many things to do year round and its only 3 hours away from where we live in Marin.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We liked this home specifically because it is so light and open with a lot of room and is very peaceful. There's nothing quite like sitting on the back deck at night next to the fire looking at the stars.
