About Scott and Dana

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

Scott and Dana purchased this House in 2014

Why Scott and Dana chose Truckee

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.

What makes this House unique

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.

                                                              Fantastic Tahoe Donner Home!

                                                              This was a fantastic home for my family to get together for the Thanksgiving holiday! Plenty of room and the layout was perfect for everyone to have their own space. Fully furnished with everything that you can possibly need in the kitchen. We cooked meals for 11 people easily. Beds were comfy and everyone slept great in this quiet setting. Scott was very informative and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here and we certainly will book it again someday.

                                                              This Tahoe Donner property is beautiful. It is well situated, immaculate, beautifully furnished, and has a perfect kitchen for multiple cooks. We found the kitchen well stocked with quality pots, pans, glasses, dishes, and sharp knives! Both the front and the back decks were great gathering places. We were able to eat all of our meals outside. The beds were very comfortable.

                                                              We highly recommend this property and would love to return!

                                                              Very nice home with many amenities!

                                                              We loved our stay at Scott and Dana's home. There were four couples and two small children - and plenty of room for all of us. Tahoe Donner is a lovely area for families and the home had a binder with every bit of information we'd need to enjoy our time there. The house was very neat and clean and the host very gracious!
