Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We are the original owners of this beautiful vacation home, and regularly visit as a family. Our boys are ages 12 and 14, so you will find many books, toys, videos, games, and puzzles at the house that they have enjoyed over the years. Since we stay at the house ourselves, we keep it in excellent condition, with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. We live in San Ramon, California.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We chose to buy in Tahoe Donner because of the wonderful recreation in all seasons. We ski in the winter, go boating and swimming in the summer, and relax and enjoy the beautiful mountains in the fall and spring. In particular, Tahoe Donner is great for families because of all the amenities available: pools, tennis, golf, skiing, fitness, restaurants, etc. It makes it easy to just hang around!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really enjoy just being together as a family, playing games, working puzzles, reading, and hanging out in the backyard. It is truly our 'home away from home' and we hope that you will also take advantage of this special place. We have people that have rented our house every year for over ten years, and I know that it is 'home' to them too!
