Tahoe Donner

Tahoe Donner was developed by Jack Kirby as a four season family resort to have every recreational facility a family could want, all in one place with open space for homeowners to enjoy the natural beauty of the Sierra mountain environment. Tahoe Donner is comprised of approximately 6,000 acres, with over 2,000 acres of open space maintained by the Tahoe Donner Association and 1,300 acres of common area interspersed among the community homes. Within this quite, pristine mountain community, amenities consist of an 18-hole PGA rated golf course and driving range, a world class cross-country ski center, a downhill ski center (great for beginners and intermediates), a private beach and boat launch at Donner Lake, tennis courts, swimming pools, saunas, work-out room, an equestrian center, a private campground, a clubhouse, restaurant, and convenience store. Not to forget that Tahoe Donner has easy access to all major ski areas, too!

Real estate in Tahoe Donner includes new and seasoned large mountain estates, to rustic single family homes on awesome view lots; golf course lots with some backing to green belts and/or creeks; plus duplexes and condominiums. Tahoe Donner does have an active HOA and its own forestry department. Snow loads in Tahoe Donner will vary with the elevation of the lot. At the upper elevations the snow loads can be substantial but that provides for a lot of fun too.

Donner Lake

Donner Lake is just south of Tahoe Donner with easy access off I-80. Formed by a glacier and fed by snow melt and under lake springs Donner Lake offers pristine water, beautiful views and a relaxing mountain environment. Summer recreational opportunities include fishing, kayaking, sailing, boating and waterskiing, as well as quick access to great hiking and mountain biking trails. Anyone can take advantage of one of the many public piers lining the shore and the Donner Lake. The Donner Lake property owners’ Beach Club provides members with access to a private beach on the west end of the lake including a boat launch, playground, club house and snack bar. The east end beach can be accessed through Donner Memorial State Park and is a great dog-friendly place to picnic.

Donner Lake is within easy access to some of the best downhill skiing in the North Sierra, including Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar at Tahoe. In addition, there are numerous cross-country ski areas including Royal Gorge, Donner Memorial State Park and Tahoe Donner.

The Lahontan community is nestled in scenic Martis Valley and offers views from cliff tops, wooded hillsides and wide valleys.

Members of this exclusive club are granted access to communities beyond the one in which you live, such as the Village at Northstar, Grays Crossing, Wild Goose, The Highlands and Schaffer’s Camp.

Single family homes, condominiums and 1/17th shared ownership in 2 and 3 bedroom condominiums and luxury 3 and 4 bedroom cabins are available along the course. Typically, shared ownership properties are used 3 weeks a year, but the “spontaneous use” option is also available – if a residence is available, use it on a moment’s notice at little additional cost.

The area features 218 single family home sites ranging in size from ¼ acre to ¾ acres, and 188 three- and four-bedroom condominiums from 1,972 sq ft to 2684 sq ft of living space.

In addition to the major communities I’ve touch on there are many smaller communities too; downtown Truckee, the Armstrong tact, Truckee River, China Camp and more. All of the above are unique in their affordability, architecture, amenities, charm and character. But they all have a few things in common; people who love Truckee, outdoor activities, easy access to ski resorts, Lake Tahoe, Reno/Sparks and the Bay Area.

My goal here was to give you the 30,000 foot view of the area to help you focus in on what communities make sense for you and your family.

Initially looking for property in Truckee seems like an easy endeavor, but you can see there is more to Truckee real estate than meets the eye.

When you are ready to actively search please call me, I’d love to consult with you and help you find the right location, home or lot to build on to make your dreams of owning a mountain home in Truckee come true.
