I am an aerospace engineer living in Seattle and I manage my dad's rental property in Donner Lake, California near Lake Tahoe.
We are friendly, quiet residents who enjoy boating and fishing from the dock but don't have the opportunity to visit as much as we used to. Our family has spent time in the area and at this location for the past 30 years and know the area very well and love to offer suggestions about places to go and things to do. There are plenty of hikes and bike trails within walking distance of the house and many other activities within a short drive, we love to give suggestions!
We do have our own private quarters in the house (the upper unit) with a separate entrance and separate path to the dock. We understand it is your vacation and are quiet but available if you need any help and we are there.
