Schaffer’s Mill, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and private club located just east of Truckee, has been chosen as the location for the 2014 HGTV Dream Home. HGTV will be building and decorating a beautiful 3,000-plus square foot cabin at Schaffer’s Mill and then the network will give it away to one lucky winner through its 2014 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway. Past locations for the HGTV Dream Home include Kiawah Island, South Carolina in 2013, Park City, Utah in 2012, Stowe, Vermont in 2011 and Sandia Park, New Mexico in 2010.

“We’re thrilled to be selected as the location for the 2014 HGTV Dream Home,” said John Marlin, Managing Partner for Schaffer’s Mill. “And, we’re excited to show off our beautiful Schaffer’s Mill community, the iconic town of Truckee and of course, the undeniable beauty of Lake Tahoe.”

The 2013 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway drew over 77 million entries, with the grand prize of a Kiawah Island HGTV Dream Home, a brand-new GMC Acadia Denali and $500,000 cash.

The Schaffer’s Mill community features home sites from the $200’s, Mountain Lodges from the $900’s and estate homes and luxury cabins from $1.2 million. Open since 2008 and named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision.
