Tahoe Donner House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Don't let the name fool you: this gorgeous four-bedroom log home is a getaway for all seasons! With room for ten guests, the Winter Avenue Manor sits nestled in a pine-studded enclave among the manicured fairways of Tahoe Donner Golf Course. The rustic log facade of this home masks an elegant Southwest interior, complete with river rock fireplace and amenities that might tempt you to linger a little longer inside before beginning your Tahoe adventures.
There's so much to do in the Tahoe Donner area, so you'll need to plan your activities once you arrive! Have a seat on one of the plush couches or chairs in the great room, and take a minute to savor the decor. With its high, knotted wood ceilings, the amazing stone fireplace (gas), and a huge flat-screen TV with cable and DVD player, this great room would be the envy of any mountain lodge. You'll be able to boot up your laptop or tablet with the free WIFI, and don't forget load up the iPod - there's a dock as well so you can enjoy your favorite soundtrack while you relax by the fire.
At mealtimes, you'll have everything you need in this big, beautiful kitchen with its double refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, and long roomy counters to create just about any meal. There's also a microwave, ice maker, and coffee grinder. Serve it up around the stately wood dining set with room for eight, or, if it's nice, eat outside on the deck (one of three) where you'll also find a gas grill in case you're in the mood for surf and turf!
If you like sports bars, you're in luck: you'll find your own private lounge upstairs! The game room is the perfect set-up to while away a rainy afternoon, with a game table for pool or Ping-Pong, a nicely equipped wet bar, and comfy sofas before another flat-screen TV. There's even a balcony so you can soak up some fresh air if the sun's shining during a can't-miss football game!
The luckiest guests in your group will be the occupants of the master suite, with its stately four-poster bed, jetted tub, freestanding glass shower, and forest views. Three additional bedrooms are quite comfortable in their own right, each appointed with the same tasteful decor and works of art, along with a queen bed dressed in soft, luxurious linens. And, in addition to the attached bath in the master suite, there are three more bathrooms, so no one is waiting to get ready for bed or to go out. The four bedrooms sleep eight comfortably, with an extra Aerobed allowing the home to accommodate up to ten guests altogether.
Once you pull yourself away from the home itself, you can enjoy all the amenities of the Tahoe Donner Association for a daily $8 fee: access to two pool complexes (one year-round), gym, homeowner's beach on Donner Lake, tennis, and miles of trails. The golf course and ski area wind through the neighborhood, and you'll enjoy discounted lift tickets to the Tahoe Donner ski resort, just a few miles from your front door.
A bit further afield, your outdoor options are nearly endless! There are 18 more trails in the area, including 10 in Donner State Park alone. Golfers have 16 courses around Truckee to choose from. Anglers have plenty of places to cast their lines, like Donner Lake, Boca Reservoir, and the Truckee River where you can also white water raft and meander in your kayak. And skiing? You're in the right place! This home is located within an hour of skiing at world-class resorts like Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, and Alpine Meadows. Or, just spend the day in charming little Truckee where you can shop, visit museums, or enjoy a great meal in one of its many restaurants.
So come stay in this gorgeous log home in historic Truckee and experience the natural beauty, abundance, and recreational bonanza to be found in the amazing Sierra Nevada Range!
