About the owner: We love to share the serentity and adventure of our Tahoe Donner home. We love to hear from guests who have enjoyed the luxury, warmth and ease of vacationing at Chalet Sierra.
Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
Truckee is a delightful mix of old west charm and modern convenience. It is so easy to reach, no matter the weather. As a neighborhood, Tahoe Donner has everything guests could need. The comminuty is inviting and welcoming. The streets are quiet and the houses are beautiful. In addition, our home is 20 minutes away from such wonderful ski resorts as Sugarbowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Boreal. In the summer, we are just a few minutes from swimming in Donner Lake at the Tahoe Donner Beach Club, or at our own Tahoe Donner pools. We truly feel that Chalet Sierra provides the perfect all-season vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Because we stay at Chalet Sierra ourselves, the house contains so many items that will make your stay perfect. The kitchen is stocked with extras to make cooking a breeze. The sheets, comforters and pillows are luxurious and cozy. There are dozens of movies for the kids (and many for grownups), and there are games and toys. We want our home to be beautiful and comfortable for every guest.
