Schaffers Mill


TRUCKEE, Calif. — Timilick, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and private golf club located just east of Truckee has been renamed Schaffer’s Mill. 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.

Schaffers Mill has a “exploration” weekend that provides lodging for 2 nights and 3 days to allow you to get familiar with the developemnt and local area. Drop me an email for information about this offering –
