About James E. Salter
We have traveled the world extensively, but one of our favorite places is Tahoe. Our active family of four has had many memorable seasons in Tahoe: skiing and sledding with our kids, reading stories on dark winter nights in front of the wood stove, biking and hiking lots of trails on the North Shore, watching Fourth of July fireworks at Lake Tahoe or Donner Lake, kayaking on Donner Lake, star gazing, outdoor concerts and theater productions, playing golf in the mountains where your ball travels farther, visiting nearby mining town Virginia City, or driving north to Graeagle on Highway 89. It's a sweet life. Mostly we have fun.
James E. Salter purchased this Condo in 2016
Why James E. Salter chose Truckee
Living in the dense urban Bay Area, we longed to have a place where our children could play outdoors in all seasons, make forts and snow caves, watch wildlife, breathe pine-scented mountain air and observe the starry sky away from city glare. We hike, bike, ski, swim, kayak, read and play games with the family. This is a perfect get-away with easy access to many amenities within Tahoe Donner as well those within driving distance. For example: Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Emerald Bay, Shakespeare at Sand Harbor, historic Virginia City, Reno, Graeagle, Sierraville, rivers, lakes, mountains, forests, skiing, hiking, biking, wildlife and discovery!
What makes this Condo unique
Among many things, our lot is adjacent to a double green belt, which means there is a small pine forest next to our condo on one side and an additional stand of trees behind ending near a dry-creek bed. Trailheads are within walking distance. In winter, downhill and cross-country skiing is minutes away. In summer, we hike, swim and play golf. Tahoe Donner has an 18-hole, 7,002-yard par-72 championship golf course located on 200-acres of pristine Sierra landscape with towering pines featuring sustainable landscape practices and recognized as the “Best Greens in the Tahoe Region.” Excellent driving range, too.

From the moment we booked our stay, James was attentive and professional. All details were taken care off, which made our stay relaxing.
The condo was well appointed with family friendly items. The kid's toys were a huge hit! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The loft was a good place for the kids to hang out while the adults hung out in the living room area. This made for relaxing evenings after a long day of adventure.
The condo is located in a great area. The short walk (50 yards) to the trail was awesome! So many section of trails to choose from. We spent many hours exploring the nearby trails, streams, and even got to play in a bit of snow!! All within walking distance.
If you're looking for a place to relax and adventure, this is the perfect location. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!!
Perfect in all ways
This was my first time staying at this beautiful condo. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the ski area and hiking trails. The condo was super clean and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable and the condo feels much bigger than it is. My family will definitely be back!!!
Glad to have you and look forward to having you visit again.
A wonderful place
I thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations for my visit to Tahoe Donner. The condo is very clean and equipped with everything I needed. The location is close to many amenities. I highly recommend this condo for others to enjoy.
Wonderful Place to Stay
Very Cozy! Will stay again for sure!!
Thanks for staying with us.
Relaxing white weekend
We spent Easter weekend at this cabin. It was our 3rd time staying at this particular place. As usual we had a great time. Although the development's ski resort and snow play area were closed, our kids were fully entertained in the backyard building snowmen, playing in an existing fort, and building a sledding ramp that we were able to use. The laundry room was nice as we were able to throw in our wet gloves and pants so they were dry before our next session in the snow. The home was immaculate and very convenient to the downtown area where we picked up some groceries and had breakfast at one morning. Can't wait to go back.
Thanks for staying with us again and I hope the new toy additions in the garage and recently added Disney movies on the movies anywhere app came in handy.
