About Schaffer's Mill

Whether it’s playing an incredible round of golf, skiing the powdered slopes of nearby Northstar, or spending time on Lake Tahoe, Schaffer’s Mill is the perfect starting point for a lifetime of memories. Set between historic Truckee and stunning Lake Tahoe in one of the most desirable areas, Schaffer’s Mill is an incredible four-season family community. It’s a place where friends gather, celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. Where kids play, neighbors become lifetime friends and where the word “community” means more than roads, homes and buildings.

Homes & Homesites

With just a few more than 400 homes available on the 475 acres of Schaffer’s Mill, the community continues the commitment to low-density, forest-friendly development chartered by the leaders of Placer County. The community features neighborhoods of custom and semi-custom single-family homes complemented by the extremely popular enclaves of the shared-wall Mountain Lodges. From a relatively intimate 2,200 square feet all the way up to grand estates, Schaffer’s Mill accommodates families of all sizes.

The community is approximately three-quarters sold, with preferred homesite and Mountain Lodge releases provided first to those on the Interest List. To learn more about real estate opportunities, call 888.519.2480 or by email, or complete our Interest Form.

Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club debuted in 2008 to immediate acclaim, being named the #1 New Private Club in California and among the Top 10 New Clubs in the Country by Golfweek magazine. The outward or “Meadow” nine ambles through firs, spruce, and Ponderosas at the base of a ridge, while the inward “Mountain” nine showcases elevation changes of up to 400 feet, with magnificent 360° views of the Martis Valley, Lookout Mountain, and the Carson Range. The par 71 course plays to over 7,000 yards and is considered by many as the finest golf course in the Tahoe and Truckee area.

Today the Club is reserved for its very fortunate Golf Members; however, reciprocal play for members of other private clubs can be arranged by working through your home golf professional.
