Living in the Schaffer’s Mill community of Lake Tahoe
When you’re looking to settle down and establish some roots in the Lake Tahoe or Truckee area, consider what’s most important to you in a community while you search for that dream property.
If you’re looking for a community that features all the natural perks of Tahoe, an award-winning golf course and amenities, and easy access to downtown Truckee, then consider living in Schaffer’s Mill. The development is nestled in the slopes between Northstar and downtown Truckee, and features numerous properties that can make a great home base for your family and future generations.
Schaffer’s Mill is a golf course community near the edge of Martis Valley in Truckee. This private development offers residents year round outdoor activities, with ample hiking trails, nearby ski resorts, a resort-style pool, and of course, the 18-hole golf course with views of Mt. Rose and the Pacific Crest that forms the heart of the community. The 7-acre Clubhouse Village is made up of two buildings that feature several shops and restaurants and member-only rooms, making it an easy place to spend the day.
One of the best perks of membership to Schaffer’s Mill is the private shuttle to and from Base Camp at Northstar- an exclusive and easily accessed mountain-side home base for a ski-in, ski-out-like experience. Located in the heart of the Village at Northstar, the space features a large fireplace with cozy couches, TVs and refreshments, as well as private gear storage and day lockers. Trust us- it’s easy to spend a full day (or weekend) on the slopes with plenty of pit stops here!
Come summertime, you’ll get to enjoy weekly Saturday evening parties in the park, offering regular chances to mingle and bond with your neighbors in the community. There are miles of trails to explore by foot or bicycle, with connection points to many other area trail systems. And those shuttles that take you to Base Camp in the winter? Those are available to Schaffer's Mill members for bespoke summer adventures.
