We are a family of 4, with two active young boys (7 and 9). We rented many places in North and South Lake Tahoe throughout the years and always dreamt of having our own place in the mountains. We bought this house in 2010 and since then, we have put a lot of efforts into making it a special place for us and our guests. It is a perfect place to take a break from our busy lives in San Francisco. We love how we can reconnect with nature, family and friends
After looking at houses in different areas in the Lake Tahoe region, we decided to settle in Tahoe Donner.
