About Elaine Morris

We have traveled all around the world but our favorite place to ski, hike, bike, kayak and rock climb is the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe area. We settled in the San Francisco Bay Area (Palo Alto) in 2008 after years of leaving overseas and bought a second home in Truckee in 2013.

We have two kids (8 and 11) who are growing up too quickly so we bought our house in order to build wonderful family memories that will entice then to continue visiting us after the college years and beyond.

We ski in the winter, of course, and in the summer there are too many activities to choose from: hiking, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, biking, stand up paddleboarding, rock climbing, golfing, tennis are all just minutes away. We love taking our tandem bicycle out--especially riding from our house along the lake and up Route 40 to Donner Summit.

Our kids love going to the Tahoe Donner day camp up here during the summer. and then we have a few hours off for a kid-free adventure.

Elaine Morris purchased this house in 2013

Why Elaine Morris chose Tahoe Donner

We fell in love first with the house--especially the VIEWS, the open, spacious floor plan and and the contemporary aesthetic.

Then we learned about everything Tahoe Donner has to offer--so much to do in summer AND winter, great common facilities including the ski resorts, private beach club on the lake, swimming pool, equestrian center, golf course and a relatively hidden gem: the extensive system of running/biking/X country skiing trails.

We really appreciate the access to I-80 and all the various downhill ski resorts.

Truckee is also a great town--with a mountain town vibe that is the real deal.

What makes this house unique

There are only a handful of houses in Tahoe Donner with our sweeping views of the lake and mountains. We chose a contemporary mountain style for the home that doesn't compete with nature. Our house is just high enough for the views, but not so high that access becomes difficult in the winter months.

We love that the house is big enough for 3-4 families, so that we are able to host family and friend reunions and share the house with others. We always come up with multiple families and the evenings are filled with lots of people cooking in the spacious kitchen, long meals and then various board games and other conversations going on afterwards.

Everyone eventually ends up in the hot tub on the deck--soaking in the views.

The house was newly renovated in spring 2013 and everything in the house is brand new.

Reviewer Comments:

Big Sky is beautiful and the accommodations are luxurious. The view is spectacular to the point that you get weary of the amount of sun coming in through the huge expanse of windows. A few shades would be extremely welcome. A few service issues were lacking. For example, the propane tank for the BBQ was empty and the outside garbage cans were overflowing when we arrived. These were taken care or work arounds were approved.

Reviewer Comments:

This place has been way above and beyond our expectations. The pics on the listing doesn't even do justice. House is decorated extremely tastefully. There was every little gadget we needed to cook (even pancake maker!) , to clean, etc. We had 12 people and were very comfortable.

By the way , the view is a killer. Even though there are a lot of things to do in Truckee, we were also tempted to stay at home, because it was so calming and relaxing.

Also management granted us a late check-out which was nice of them.

Definitely will go back again!

We celebrated a 30th year birthday and the property was perfect, outfitted with hot tub, sauna, grill, and enough rooms. Beautiful bathrooms and common living room and kitchen. We miss it already and highly recommend this property.

Reviewer Comments:

Great views and close to Truckee restaurants, bars & groceries. Lost of space. Gets very windy and whistling sounds are all around at night. Hot tub cannot hold heat when windy. Property dated and a little tired. Needs more entertainment features (pool table, foosball, cable stations, movies, games etc..).
