Milky Way Mountain Home
A home that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world! Welcome to Milky Way Mountain Home, a stunning property located North of Lake Tahoe that overlooks Lake Donner and has panoramic unobstructed views from the Carson Range to Northstar to Donner Lake and down the spine of the Sierra Crest. With the serene landscape, luxurious chalet-inspired interior, and an arms reach from the most popular attractions, this retreat leaves little to be desired.
Upon entry, you’ll be mesmerized by the valley and lake views calling you from the countless windows. The main floor has been thoughtfully designed to be completely open-concept, allowing you and your guests to engage with one another from the kitchen, dining, and living areas. On the main floor is a full bathroom with a standup shower.
The living room is grand with vaulted ceilings lined with natural wooden planks and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace that is a piece of art in itself. Ample seating can be found on the leather sectional.
The large kitchen is well equipped with all the cookware you’ll need to whip up a delicious meal. In addition to the major appliances, guests can also find a toaster, coffee maker, and pressure cooker. The large island and oversized counters give plenty of room for prep space and an extra set of helping hands. And while we know we’ve mentioned the ‘great views’ a few times, here you can live out your daydream of seeing mountains right from your kitchen sink.
Steps away from the kitchen is a large dining room table that will fit all guests comfortably. Here, you have easy access to the spacious balcony where you can enjoy sunrises, sunsets, and maybe even a glimpse of the milky way!
Also found on the main floor is an office space with panoramic views and balcony access. If duty calls, at least you’ll be working from somewhere with bragging rights!

On the 3rd floor, there’s a separate living area with a 82” TV, PlayStation game console, window seat, and activities for kids. The home is set back on the lot and adjacent to a wide greenbelt allowing for true 180+ degree views from sunrise to sunset. Big windows and southern exposure create incredible all day natural light. 3850 SQFT with separate loft, office, family space means there is room for everyone.
