Whether it’s playing an incredible round of golf, skiing the powdered slopes of nearby Northstar, or spending time on Lake Tahoe aboard the Club’s yacht, Schaffer’s Mill is the backdrop for a lifetime of memories.
Set in the beautiful Martis Valley, between historic Truckee and stunning Lake Tahoe, Schaffer’s Mill is an incredible four-season family community. It’s a place where families gather, celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. Where kids play, neighbors become lifetime friends and where the word “community” means more than a few roads, homes and buildings. We invite you to discover Schaffer’s Mill – visit our new North Clubhouse Village, tour our Mountain Lodges, scenic homesites and luxury cabins and explore the grandeur of the High Sierras.
Schaffers Mill, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and private golf club located just east of Truckee was previously known as Timilick.
Named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision. New Martis Partners acquired the exceptional, but beleaguered property in January 2011 and immediately set about to re-brand and reposition the community.
“Schaffer’s Mill will be a place where families can come together to experience the adventure and beauty of the Truckee and Tahoe region,” said New Martis Partners Managing Partner John Marlin. “Much like its namesake, Schaffer’s Mill will work for the betterment of the Truckee and Tahoe communities. Whenever possible we will look to support local businesses, such as bakers, builders, florists and artists.”
Schaffer’s large, close-knit family shared many lasting memories and enjoyed wonderful traditions while living and working within these surroundings. Like the Schaffers, Schaffer’s Mill will be a community where families can enjoy spending time together with a round of golf, trout fishing in one of the stocked ponds or sharing a milkshake on the clubhouse patio.
For those families searching for fun, a Schaffer’s Mill community concierge will develop a year-round schedule of activities and fun for the whole family, including skiing, boating, hiking, etc. Schaffer’s Mill residential opportunities are comprised of 400 estate-sized custom home sites.
