About the Property

Our home is perfect for multiple families who want to have a great get-away together.

This beautiful 4 bedroom 3½ bath two story house has over 3,000 square feet of bright and comfortable living space for you to enjoy and comfortably sleeps 12 people with beds for 14.

The location in Tahoe Donner puts you right in the center of both winter and summer activities, but is also located on a quiet, forested street that provides a relaxing place to stay.

The bright main living area offers a floor plan that is wide open from the front to rear of the house with pine cathedral ceilings and a gas fireplace. The kitchen is open to the dining and living area and has all amenities including; microwave, coffee maker, espresso machine, toaster oven, dishwasher, and all cooking items and utensils you will need. The dining room table comfortably accommodates 8 people, and there are 4 barstools at the countertop bar. The dining area opens onto the front deck overlooking the street while the living room area opens onto the rear deck overlooking forest. The rear deck has a Weber gas BBQ and gas fire pit perfect for sharing a morning coffee or evening glass of wine while enjoying the solitude.


The 4 bedrooms include: 1 King in Master Suite on upper floor; 2 Queen bedrooms downstairs; 1 large kids bedroom downstairs with 2 bunk beds (4 twin beds) plus two trundles (2 twin beds); and 1 King in the Loft area above the great room, so 12 can sleep comfortably. The kids’ room also has a TV with Cable and DVD/Blu-Ray Player, books, foosball table and games. There is a new hot tub just outside the kids room sliding glass door on the ground level looking out over the forest.

We supply bed linens, towels and blankets, and have a washer and dryer in the laundry room. We provide secure high-speed Internet, telephone, and 2 flat-screen TVs with cable and DVD/Blu-Ray players.

The Tahoe Donner area has an extensive trail network for hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing that you can jump onto just 100’ from our back deck.

Two guest passes to Tahoe Donner's association amenities will be available for your use. For a charge of $8 per person each day this will allow you access for up to 8 guests (4 per pass) to a gym with breathtaking views, 2 pools (lap pool for adults, fun pool for kids), sauna, 2 hot tubs, Tahoe Donner golf course and driving range, Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski and Cross-Country Ski areas, Equestrian Center (summer), a private beach by Donner Lake, and a separate recreation center with games, tennis courts, outdoor summer activities, playgrounds, kids camps, and a third pool all within a 10-15 minute drive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

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.
