Which Truckee community is right for you?
Truckee is just 34 square miles but filled with endless activities, including 7 ski resorts, 17 miles of paved path and 2,800 acres of beautiful forests and meadows. And while the outdoor options are tremendously diverse for this relatively small town, so are the real estate offerings, which are often a bit confusing to navigate on your own.
Here is a comprehensive look at all of Truckee’s luxury communities to help you decide which one is best for you and your family.

Martis Camp is Truckee’s premier luxury community with a private high-speed quad lift to Northstar California’s slopes, 7,751-yard Tom Fazio designed golf course and a members-only beach ‘shack’ right on the shores of Lake Tahoe. This family-centered private community has hosted The Beach Boys as well as the USGA Junior Amateur Golf Tournament and is home to a few Silicon Valley celebrities. A large swimming pool, bowling alley, movie theater, and hands-down the best restaurants in Truckee also sit on the 2,177-acre property among the 670+ large homesites. We have yet to find something we don’t like about Martis Camp.
Lahontan was the first of the private, gated luxury communities, providing a wide spectrum of luxury homes, two award-winning golf courses, 3 pools, 3 tennis courts and a 24-hour guarded gatehouse entry for an ultra-private four-season retreat.
Schaffer’s Mill is the smallest of Truckee’s luxury golf course communities with a strong community vibe. The Clubhouse Village is the central outdoor meeting place affectionately known as Schaffer’s Square. Here you can find outdoor concerts, movies under the stars, and holiday celebrations throughout the year.
Old Greenwood, or “OG” as we affectionately refer to it, provides panoramic views of the Carson Range to the East and Lookout Mountain to the South. OG is home to a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and is centrally located just minutes from Downtown Truckee, Donner Lake, and Northstar California Resort.
Gray’s Crossing is a luxury golf community in the ideal Truckee location with easy access to Downtown Truckee, Interstate 80/Highway 267, Northstar California Resort, numerous biking & hiking trails and just down the road from Donner Lake and over the hill from Lake Tahoe.
Mountainside at Northstar
Mountainside at Northstar is Tahoe’s only true ski-in/ski-out community. Nestled in the woods high above Northstar California and The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, Mountainside is comprised of 5 distinct luxury neighborhoods: M25, Trailside, Home Run, Stellar and The Boulders.
Northstar real estate options include everything from homesites that offer you ideal locations to build your dream home or condominium residences offering ease of ownership with turn-key solutions. Just like the diverse options around Lake Tahoe, the mix of Northstar homes for sale is highly varied to meet any lifestyle. Village Walk Skyline is Northstar’s newest Village development in over a decade. The final development will be 22 gated townhomes just steps from the Village at Northstar, with the first 8 units completed by January 2021 – now accepting reservations.
Tahoe Donner is one of California’s largest resort communities, with nearly 6,500 properties and 25,000 members enjoying over 7,500 acres high atop Truckee. Tahoe Donner members get access to a comprehensive list of amenities inside their community including their ski resort, lodge, swimming pool, and fitness center, and externally like private access to Donner Lake.
