LAKEFRONT AT DONNER LAKE (ON LAKE, LAKE DOCK, HOT TUB)

Donner Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Looking for a quiet, yet fun getaway? This is the place to be with tons of activities and possibilities. In the winter you can go to any of the nearby ski resorts such as: Sugar Bowl, Boreal, and Squaw Valley. Have kids? They can play in the snow on the large deck, or even create a sled hill on the side of the house. In the summer, you can bring your boat or jet skis and tie it up to the pier. Have more than one boat? Tie up the boat on our buoy located just out from the pier.

There are many trails nearby where you can take a hike, or even go for a horseback ride. Fishing is great on Donner, you can catch a couple off of the dock each day by just throwing out a line with a worm or some power bait, you can even use a lure from shore. For all who love to gamble, Reno is just a half hour away where there are many casinos. Many golf attractions are nearby as well. For those who are just looking for a quiet getaway, you can make a nice fire in one of the outside chimneys or in the expansive fire place inside. Don't forget about heating up the hot tub and sitting in the snow or in the sun.

The owners are a husband and wife with family who love the Truckee and Donner Lake area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

We bought this wonderful property based upon it being on the lake and on the sunny side of Donner Lake. The sunny side of Donner Lake also provides easier access during the winter months.

Sitting out on large deck enjoying the scenery, wildlife, quiet times, boating and swimming in the clear clean lake. There is a professionally cleaned hot tub located in the same large deck that is situated to enjoy the lake while still maintaining privacy.

DONNER DELIGHT!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home sitting on the sunny northside of Donner Lake. It's big & beautiful. The canoe is fun & just sitting on the HUGE deck is wonderful! Working with the owner was very easy. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat & probably will.

BEAUTIFUL AND QUITE ON THE LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation rental on the lake and it was better then we expected. The place was clean, great views of the lake and mountains. There was also plenty of living space and a great spa looking over the lake. This won't be our last time there and we are planning to make it a family vacation to go ever year there..

JUST RETURNED FROM A RELAXING WEEK...

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week full of surprises. When we rented the house we thought we would be spending all of our time on the water but Mother Nature had other ideas - we ended up with snow 2 days of our trip and it was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the warm fires inside and out. We had several warm, sunny days that were mixed in as well and were able to catch fish right off the private dock. The house is large and can easily accomodate a large group. The pictures of the outside of the house do not do it justice. The decks are both furnished with comfortable furniture and cushions to enjoy the amazing view or a nice fire. My 3 year old had a great time playing on the private beach as well. We hope to return sometime in the future.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
I noticed there hasn't been a review on this property since January of 2013 so I thought it was important to post a current review so renters know what to expect. This isn't the first time we have rented this property so we have seen it get a bit more worn over time and there are some things that need to be replaced and/or updated. The location is, hands down, the best thing about this rental. On the sunny side of Donner Lake with a private dock and several decks overlooking the water, really make this rental four stars. However, the carpet is badly stained in some spots and needs to be replaced. Many of the pans have a teflon coating that is peeling off and they really need to be replaced as well. The bed covers have become faded and a few new bath towels need to be rotated into the mix. Most of the beds are on the firm side, but we had a guest who was unable to sleep on the mattress in the bunk room and said it was sinking in the middle and too uncomfortable to sleep on. While it is well appointed in some areas, there were small things that weren't provided like kitchen sponges, some extra garbage bags, an extra roll of paper towels or toilet paper or even a regular size bar of bath soap. Also, there is no wood provided for the outdoor fire pits so be prepared to purchase wood if you want to enjoy them. It appeared the cleaning service did a poor job of knocking down many large cobwebs on the ceiling and corners and even the bath rug was quite dirty upon our arrival. I threw it in the wash machine and it came out looking like new which makes you wonder why it couldn't have been done prior to our arrival. It should be noted that the one car garage is locked so it can't be used to park a vehicle so you can fit about three vehicles out front. Having said all that, we had a wonderful time enjoying the lake and sunshine. The fishing was good and the lake level and temperatures were fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to friends but would describe the interior amenities as well-used.

Owner's Response: We want to thank our guests for their review of our great property. The guests forgot to mention that we have replaced the upstairs carpet with beautiful hardwood floors, painted over half the living space and upgraded décor and mattresses. We are in the process of updating items but can’t do it all at once.
We have communicated the garbage bag issue and rolls of goods to our cleaner and this has been taken care of. The outdoor fire pit is an amenity we added to make the place feel more outdoorsy and camping focused. We are now communicating to future guests that wood is not provided - due to this one time comment.
The house has parking outside for 4+ cars when parked correctly. The one car garage is for our own personal items since we share our great property with others.
We want to make sure all of our guests have an amazing time and part of that formula is to have clear expectations. This is our cherished second home not the Ritz Carlton. The rental price we ask for reflects the “lived- in” nature of the home and if you compare the size and location the price is the best value at the lake. ( that is why we have almost all returning guests and the house is booked solid even years in advance).
It is a beautiful house and location that we share with others and we ask that guests take care of like it is their own house.

LAKESIDE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 3 nite stay with our family 6 adults and 3 children. Pictures on website do not do home justice. The view of Donner lake is stunning from the two bedrooms downstairs and living room upstairs. We found the house clean and stocked with staples. My only suggestion would be some new pots and pans. There was plenty of room to play board games, watch TV and visit. Enjoyed cooking and sitting around the large dining room table. The hot tub was an added plus after long day of skiing and sledding. The location of home is convenient to ski resorts, restaraunts and groceries. Made some lasting memories here. Plan to return for many years to come. Dan was very easy to deal with. Fortunately we never needed to call him, only to thank him for such a wonderful stay.

AMAZING FAMILY CABIN

  • 5 of 5
We had a FABULOUS time at the Donner house. Only a few things were a bit of a problem. When we entered the home, there was an unpleasant smell that we traced to the downstairs plumbing but with airing out the place, the smell went away and we never opened the closet again for the 5 days. It may have been the exit for the downstairs toilet, but I don't know.
All of the accommodations were comfortable and the only thing that my older kids said about the bunk beds was that they crackled with every toss and turn in their sleep, so they tried not to wake the others in the room.
Unfortunately my daughter injured her knee and was on crutches, but her EMT/fireman husband helped carry her up & down the stairs. It was great exercise for ME!!
The home was absolutely wonderful for our family, with the ease & comfort for everyone moving around the house, to the decks, to the dock and the spa. We all enjoyed the views and the comfy couches and communing in the kitchen. The dining table was able to fit all of us comfortably, and we also used it to play many games. The outside furniture on the deck was comfortable and cozy.
We want to make this an annual trip for our family to enjoy and relax together. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. Sincerely, Cheryl
