My sister and I own the cabin, which has been in our family for 50 years! We live in the Bay Area and we own a Commercial Property Management Company.
Phyllis Osaki purchased this cabin in 1964
Charming simple cabin for quiet get away. Reasonably priced and conveniently located walking distance to lake. Private Beach privilege.
Free Internet and cable TV
I love this place! Staying at this hidden gem has been a tradition for years. Its excellent location, close to hiking, biking, fishing, beach, and breathtaking views, makes it a great place to stay. There are so many activities within a short distance, it is hard to choose just one. When it is time to unwind, a few minutes away downtown Truckee awaits with its plethora of restaurants, bars, and shops. Tahoe City, King’s Beach, and Reno are also in close proximity. On the other hand, you may want to skip the activities and just enjoy the cabin and the beautiful surrounding neighborhood. The cabin is located amidst a tight community of friendly neighbors, perfect for leisurely afternoon stroll. The quaint, yet extremely cute cabin has the rustic feel of Donner Lake, although it is equipped with many modern conveniences, such as laundry facilities and wireless internet. I would recommend staying at this cabin if you want to enjoy Donner Lake as a visitor, but want to feel like you are a local.
My husband and I have been renting this cottage for over a decade now. It is a little piece of heaven for us, always clean, well maintained and so charming. The cabin location is perfect, just a short walk to the lake, amazing areas to hike and bike and a quick drive to downtown Truckee with adorable shops and great dining options.
We are a family of four with two young children ( 2.5 and 7.5 years old). This was the perfect weekend getaway. The cabin is cozy and filled with rustic charm and is accurately portrayed in the photos. The property owner is also extremely helpful and responsive. The layout of the cabin is really nice for families with young children as it has a pretty open layout inside and you don't have to worry about the height of the deck (if you have young kids, you know that this is something you don't want to have to stress out about while you are trying to "get away from it all". Trust me).
The cabin is well stocked and has everything from kids sand toys to supplemental fishing equipment. It is also located within walking distance to West End Park and is a short drive to many areas on the shore where you can fish for trout. I highly recommend coming here in the Fall or early Winter when the lake is quieter and has less tourists but we will also be back to enjoy this lovely gem in the summer! If you want a great place to stay that is reasonable priced - don't look any further.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cabin! It came with a very well stocked kitchen, which made cooking meals easy and enjoyable. Everything was in perfect working order and the decor was warm and cozy. We will certainly try to book this cabin again for next year. Thanks for the great vacation!
