This dog friendly home is the perfect location for everyone's ski or outdoor adventure. Located in Tahoe Donner featuring beautiful gardens and quick access to horse and hiking trails.
Exterior: This is the perfect location for everyone's ski or outdoor adventure. This 2650 sq ft Tahoe style home provides plenty of room for guests to spread out in the great room, family room and loft, with 3 large private bedrooms, and a queen size Murphy bed in the bonus room.
On the main level you enter through a mudroom followed by a spacious floor plan encompassing the living room, dining area, kitchen, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a bonus room. Each bedroom has a Queen bed and shares a full bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The living area has a wood burning fireplace and plenty of comfy seating for chilly nights. The dining area has seating for 10 around a beautifully set table for entertaining large groups. The kitchen is supplied with your usual kitchen appliances and equipped with coffee maker, blender, electric beater, toaster and place settings for 10 along with teas, coffee, and cooking spices to make you feel at home.
At the other wing of the main level you will walk down a couple steps into the Bonus room. This room has Cable TV with DVD and a wet bar. There is a Murphy bed which pulls down from the wall holding a full size Queen mattress. There is also a gas fireplace along with a DVD library.
Upstairs is the loft which has a trundle bed with two Twin beds and a great place for kids to play games. The master suite is especially large accommodating a California King bed and an attached bathroom featuring a jetted tub and dual sinks.
This is a beautiful all season retreat perfect for outdoor activities all year long. The owners have spent 10 years improving the garden so guests can enjoy the abundance of flowers and birds surrounding the yard in the Spring and Summer, as well as the changing colors of the Aspens in the Fall. Croquet is a favorite with families and groups which can be enjoyed on the large lawn out back. You will never get tired of just relaxing on the large back deck listening to the creek or swinging in the two seated lawn swings just watching the nature around you.
The hikers among you will be ecstatic to have a trailhead connecting you to the Tahoe Donner trail system just across the street. And this couldn't be a better spot for you equestrians or snowshoe enthusiasts. Depending on when the snows melt the Tahoe Donner equestrian center is open three to four months out of the year with more than 40 miles of trails to explore. The Tahoe Donner stables are open to the public for boarding and you can easily walk to the stables through the woods from the house. Now that is first class horse camping!
The house is located just a block from the downhill ski area, and is accessible by a neighborhood trail right across the street to the Olympic Cross Country Center with 40 miles of trails. A flat driveway and only a couple steps on the main floor makes this home accessible to everyone.
Don't forget that by renting in Tahoe Donner your party can use the provided guest passes to the amenities which, for a nominal fee, gets you into the recreation center with hot tubs and a heated pool as well as a full workout center. In the summer you can enjoy the private beach on Donner Lake, and you get "guest" rates at the ski hills in the winter.
The weather in Truckee couldn't be finer. Escape the heat of the valley and many other parts of the country to a cool 70's in the Spring and summer, and fall. The winters are normally great as well. Of course we get snowstorms, but they are usually followed by beautiful sunny days, just perfect for skiing or snowshoeing.
*This home can be wheelchair accessible with only 2 steps at the entry to get into the main floor. The entry door width is 35" wide and the bedroom door width is 30". However, the shower/tub is a regular style one not wheelchair accessible. Although, the Tahoe Donner Recreation Center has Wheelchair accessible showers if needed.
