vacation rental description

Thank you for your interest in our Donner Lake home. This beautiful, comfortable Donner Lake lakefront 2 bedroom/1 bathroom is right on the water. This is the lake level quarters custom home. Wake up to a view of the lake and forested granite mountains. Walk down a flight of stairs and jump in the lake or cast out a line.

Access to our home is easy. There is enough room to park two vehicles in front of the house.

Walk down a pathway toward the lake to the entrance. There is a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a laundry room and a full bathroom. The rental is completely self-contained. The kitchen has a stove/oven, a refrigerator, and a gas BBQ. The bath includes all the necessities. There is cable TV, a DVD player, a stereo and high-speed internet access.

Go down a flight of carpeted stairs to a carpeted (soft on your bare feet and great for laying out) private dock where you can moor a boat, a PWC, try your luck at fishing, swim, or simply relax.

Our home has 2 queen-sized beds and a sofa bed in the front room. We don’t want to rent to large groups. This is not a party cabin. It is perfect for a small family or a couple or two.

Truckee’s restaurants and shops are 15 minutes from the house.

No smoking or pets are allowed anywhere on property.

Please e-mail or call if you have any questions.

Thank you!

traveler reviews for this donner lake house rental

south shore donner cabin

Review submitted: July 28, 2013   Date of arrival: July 15, 2013

This home is gorgeous! Its exactly as advertised. All the comforts of home. Extra linens, pots and pans. My family and I were extremely happy. As you walk down the serene steps (a few stones NEED to be replace for safety and liability issues) you are blessed with the beauty of lake donner. We entered thru the sliding glass door and were surprised to see our own gorgeous, private secluded view of the lake from every room. The first morning we woke finding a beautiful deer eating the foil age on the hill along the lake.
Whether you want to relax on the dock,swim on the lake, play on boats and jet skis, take an 8 mile walk/run/ bike around the lake you can do it all... We had the cabin Monday-Sat the whole week seemed like we were the only ones there. From night and sat morning is when people fro. All over started filtering in. Still so much more private and less traffic than Tahoe.
My kids are teenagers so we had to get out and find activities. If you like animals. Reno has an animal sanctuary "Animal Arc" dedicated to care for injured and non releasable wild life. Of course wild island has water slides. Go karting black light mini golf and bowling. Camp Richardson horseback riding was awesome. But what takes the cake is sitting on the dock watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee and seeing the amazing sunset when the bats come out to find their food. I Would DEFINITELY come back to this secluded hideaway. Thank you Mark and Evan for sharing your cabin with us.

Great Vews and Location

Review submitted: July 13, 2013   Date of arrival: July 7, 2013

We just returned from a five night trip and can't wait to return. Though this is a small place, it is in one of the best locations on the lake. We enjoyed docking our boat directly below the cabin and fishing off of the dock each morning and evening. The views from both bedrooms and the livingroom overlook the beautiful lake and provide a genuine feeling of relaxation. The beds were comfortable and we all enjoyed playing board games or watching movies on Netflix in the evenings. The town of Truckee is five minutes away for great restaurants and shops and we took advantage of the 30 minute trip to Reno for a little gambling excursion. The lake was a perfect temperature for cooling off, water skiing, tubing, and wake boarding. Early morning and late afternoon the winds die down to provide optimal conditions. We even rented a wave runner for an hour on the lake and our teenage son had a blast. We booked this rental less than a month before our trip. The owner was easy to work with had the place equipped just right for us to enjoy our stay. They even provided towels and sheets which added to the enjoyment of our family vacation. This would be a great find for either two couples, or a family with kids. We will definately return to this rental property again. I imagine it being beautiful in the winter as well when all of the mountains are coverred in snow and it would be a nice oasis after a day of snow skiing.

Owners response: We're glad Dan had a great time and speaks so highly of the place! As a note for future guests, Truckee is closer to a 15 minute drive as one must drive around the lake and Reno is about an hour(time flies though when its as beautiful a drive as this one is!). Also, although the house is gorgeous in the winter, we don't allow guests to stay because it is quite treacherous to reach the house in winter conditions(the driveway is steep and it can get quite slippery). We're open until the first snow drops so drop us a line! We highly recommend the fall as the lake quiets down quite a bit.

Review of Donnor Lake Cabin

Review submitted: August 21, 2012   Date of arrival: August 4, 2012

The website and the owner's description is accurate. The there are lots of stairs to get to from the parking to the front door. The property was very clean and well stocked with linen, towels, dishes, etc. We ended up bringing way too much stuff that was already provided. The owners were great, very thorough with directions and very prompt in response to questions. The boat dock is absolutely amazing. We spent most days on the dock, fishing, swimming, and boating. It's like a private beach without sand. We loved it. The family is already talking about next year.
