About the property

Cozy & Warm 3BR/3BA home, easy access to BOTH Downhill and Cross Country Skiing

We built this home in 1990 and now want to share its warmth and beauty with others. I am a recently retired local school teacher who has lived in Truckee for over 30 years. As an avid downhill skier I picked this lot to build on for its convenient access to the downhill ski area. An added bonus is its close proximity to the cross country ski center. In the winter you can enjoy going for a snowshoe adventure in the backyard. In the summer you can access miles of hiking or mountain biking trails right out the front door. You can even enjoy and hear the tranquil beauty of Alder Creek in the backyard!

The home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, two of the bedrooms are master suites. It is 2,500 square feet with plenty of room for a few couples or a large family. It has enough beds to comfortably sleep 6 people. Both master suites have 1 queen bed, and the additional bedroom has a twin day bed with a pullout trundle twin bed if needed. The master bathroom includes a Jacuzzi tub as well as a shower. The other two bathrooms also have showers. The large living room is great for family game nights or a relaxing night watching a movie while the wood burning fireplace keeps the home warm and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped and open to the dining room with easy access to the living room.

The outside of the home features a spacious deck with Alder Creek in the backyard amongst the tall pine trees. Enjoy the warm summer or fall sunshine while taking a nap on the hammock. Enjoy watching the snowfall and accumulate on the back deck while icicles form. It is truly a gorgeous and relaxing year-round setting.

The home is pet friendly for well-behaved dogs. My dog and my daughter’s dog frequently enjoy lounging in the sunshine streaming through the windows and playing together in the backyard (please note the backyard is not fenced in).

Tahoe Donner is a wonderful location to enjoy your Tahoe vacation. The area features multiple amenities (some include an additional fee not included in the rental cost), and many outdoor activities. Tahoe Donner even features two restaurants within 2 miles of the home. Tahoe Donner is also conveniently located less than 6 miles from downtown Truckee where you can enjoy world class dining and shopping. Truckee is located within easy driving distance of multiple world class ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Homewood, Soda Springs, and Donner Ski Ranch.

Truckee and Tahoe Donner truly are a year-round outdoor lover’s paradise. If you are looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a great vacation with family and friends then this home's location is perfect for you.

Please note: We DO NOT offer long term leases for this property including ski season leases.
