Prosser Lakeview Estates

Located off Highway 89 North, the subdivision is adjacent to the Alder Creek entrance to Tahoe Donner.  Made up mostly of primary residence, this is a quiet neighborhood  with plenty of trees and is in close proximity to Prosser Reservoir.  The nearby National Forest Lands are nice for hiking and mountain biking.

Olympic Heights

Olympic Heights offers a unique advantage in a region with long winters – lots of sun!  Located between Downtown Truckee and Glenshire, Olympic Heights is perched on a southern facing hill off Glenshire Drive.  The neighborhood offers views of the Martis Valley and Northstar Ski Area.  There is no homeowners’ association or amenities and homes are on septic systems.


Glenshire is about 6 miles east of downtown Truckee.  The community has its own store, preschool, ballet studio, elementary school, and real estate office.  Glenshire has a homeowners’ association, a clubhouse and a pool. Within the Glenshire area is Cambridge Estates, the Meadows, Juniper Hills and Juniper Creek Ranch.

Sierra Meadows/Ponderosa Palisades

Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades are located across the Truckee River, off Highway 267.  It’s a primary residence area with some second homeowners who want to be close to the airport or Northstar Ski Resort.  Although the two neighborhoods share the same entrance and exit, they differ in services.  Sierra Meadows has a homeowners’ association with annual fees, tennis courts and a pool.  Ponderosa Palisades has more trees, no association and no amenities.  Beyond Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades there are two subdivisions called Ponderosa Ranchos and Martiswood, zoned for horses.  The neighborhood features underground utilities and a mix of primary and second homes.  Across from Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades is another neighborhood, Ponderosa Fairway Estates.

Donner Lake

Both families and second-home owners at Donner Lake.  Most homes are within walking distance of the lake.  History buffs and nature seekers often are drawn to Donner Lake – an area bordered by Donner Memorial State Park on the east and Donner Summit on the west.  The area also is a favorite with rock climbers. At the west end of the lake, the Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District maintains a beach.
