Beautiful Tahoe-Donner Home with Large Great Room 5 Minutes to Skiing and Winter Fun
Our beautiful, Tahoe-Donner home in the foothills above the town of Truckee features a large "great-room", perfect for entertaining, and a host of amenities that will make your stay in the Lake Tahoe area truly memorable.
During the spring, summer, and fall months, you will enjoy the two outdoor decks, one with an amazing view of Mt. Rose sunsets, the other private and secluded. The home has close proximity to all that the Tahoe-Donner community has to offer, including 3 pools, tennis center, workout facilities, and a semi-private beach club on the east shore of Donner Lake. Minutes away from the Tahoe-Donner and Coyote Moon championship golf courses and the quaint and rustic town of Truckee with its lovely boutique shopping and dining experiences, the home's location can offer something for everyone in your family.
The home itself features 1998 modern construction and includes a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, central heating, and pine accents throughout. The entire living area is on one level with direct access to both outdoor decks. The 'Great Room' offers almost 1,000 square feet of space, complete with a large sectional, 48" rear projection TV equipped with cable/DVD/VCR, dining area that comfortably seats seven, wood burning stove, and a kitchen area with plenty of counterspace. The master bedroom has a pillow-top, Sealy Posturepedic California king bed, its own 32" HDTV with cable and DVD player, and private bathroom with washer and dryer. The second bedroom features a queen-size Sealy Posturepedic and a private deck. The third bedroom has a bunk bed with full on the bottom and a twin on the top, great for the kids. An extra pull out mattress under the bunk can provide a 7th sleeping spot. A two car garage with regular driveway snow plow service during the winter provides parking for 4 vehicles.
During the winter, guests can enjoy a "private" snow-play area in the large, empty lot next door. This is ideal for families with small children who don't want the hassle of loading up the kids to go to a public snow play area, only for someone in the group to get tired and want to go home. For those into snow sports, the home is a short 20 minutes from Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine ski resorts. We are also just a 5 minute drive to the Tahoe Donner downhill ski area.
Tahoe-Donner offers a great Lake Tahoe vacation experience, especially for families. The community offers 3 pools (1 adult only), a tennis center with 11 courts, a semi-private beach club on Donner Lake with Kayak and paddle boat rentals, and two restaurants including the newly completed Tahoe-Donner Lodge. The downhill ski area is super convenient and great for young families and beginners. The cross-country ski area is second to none, offering access to 4,800 acres of terrain, including the amazing Euer valley. During the winter, the golf course driving range (3 minutes away) is turned into a public snow-play area with sled rentals. After a good day on the slopes, soothe your aching muscles in one of the 3 spas at the Trout Creek Recreational center. Best of all, we're 20-30 minutes closer to the Bay Area, right off highway 80, and provide easier access to all the ski resorts and golf courses than those communities near Lake Tahoe.

"Great place for small kids and families. We rented this house with 2 families and 5 kids, and had a great time. We were able to put all kids in the bunk bed room, with a mattress on the floor, leaving the other two rooms for parents. Donner area is great, since it's slightly closer to the Bay Area/Sacramento. Even the extra 30 minute drive to and from the Lake area can make a difference with little ones. Very close to Boreal and Soda springs resorts (and Donner, which wasn't open), Truckee village, and nearby grocery store. The house has most everything you need, kitchen basics, 2 car garage (really nice if it's snowing), linens/towels. It's not super swanky, which is good for kids, but clean and nice, and well worth the price. Even during the Christmas/New Year's holiday week, we weren't price gouged or required to stay longer than a couple of days. Renting was super easy, and handled very professionally. No problems with booking, paying, and getting refund back. I would definitely return."
