NEW CRAFTSMAN HOME ON DONNER LAKE CREEK INCLUDES 4 KAYAKS

Donner Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

This is a new craftsman Tahoe style house on a sunny cul-de-sac lot on the water! When they raise the lake level for the summer Donner lake extends up the creek past our property allowing kayaks and small boats to access the creek. The house is over 3,000 square feet and is perfect for large family gatherings or getting together with friends. It sleeps 14+ people in beds and futons and has 3 1/2 BATHROOMS (that's important)!!! Bring three families and share the expenses.

For downhill skiers, the house is two miles from Sugar Bowl or Donner Ski Ranch and four miles from Boreal. Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are about 20 minutes away. Soda Springs Mountain Resort is 4 miles away and designed for young kids and families. Royal Gorge, the LARGEST cross country ski resort in North America, is four miles away. In the late spring, summer, and fall, there is boating, hiking, fishing, and lots of biking -- something for everyone. Donner Lake is a short paddle down the creek in one of the FOUR KAYAKS (two doubles and two singles) provided.

The first floor is very rustic and warm with vaulted, open beam trussed ceilings, wood floors and lots of windows with views of the creek. It has a 'great room' style living room with a granite fireplace, a large screen cable TV with surround sound, a Play station 3 with Blueray DVD. The dining area has a table for 10, and fully furnished kitchen with granite bar and TWO refrigerators for those large groups; a master bedroom has a king-size bed, fireplace, TV, Jacuzzi and master bathroom; a den with a queen size futon, and computer desk and printer, WIFI, a mud / laundry room with stainless steel fish cleaning sink, (laundry soap and fabric sheets are provided); and a half bath. Hydronic heat in the floor keeps the house cozy warm.

The second floor overlooks the great room. It has two large bedroom suites with their own bathrooms. The creek view room has a king and queen bed. The mountain view room has a queen bed, and TV. The second floor has a balcony, a recliner and its own stairway exit.

The third floor is a huge loft with clear story windows and views of Donner Peak. Two double bed futons and lots of room for blow up beds provided. Playstation 3.

LINENS ARE INCLUDED for all beds and futons.

We have a sunny front yard and a shady back patio with a gas bar-b-que and two tables and chairs for 12, The double car garage has SLEDS as well as places to store your gear. The house is on a road that is plowed well and often. There is off street parking for five vehicles. A snow service keeps the driveway clear of snow. An emergency generator comes on if power is lost and keeps the heat, hot water, and critical lighting on till power is restored. You may have cold neighbors visiting, for hot coffee, and chocolate.

We love our house and look forward to our own family gatherings. We really enjoy sharing it with other families and absolutely love hearing about their visits. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5
For over 20 years our family has a family reunion at Donner Lake. This was by far the most comfortable,well equipped home we've ever had the pleasure to rent! The design was fantastic, very up-to- date appliances, and furnishings! Location was perfect, quiet, on a beautiful creek setting and accessible to the lake ! The kids loved the kayaks, swimming, fishing,TV and video games! The adults loved the peaceful setting, perfect for BBQ and just loafing! We definitely would love to come back! Thank you !

West Donner Lake Home

My family stayed here for Spring break with our dog. The house was beautiful, comfortable and well equiped. It did not feel like a rental! A friend and her two children stayed with us 2 nights and we all fit easily with the kids in the loft bedroom. It was nice to stay in a cabin that at the very least had salt and pepper (we used theirs until we could get to the store)! At night we crated our dog and found a great doggie daycare called Truckee Tahoe Pet Lodge, 5 minutes away, while we skiied. I cannot say enough about this cabin...we are renting here again!

One of our favorite family memories

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated my mom's 70th birthday Labor Day weekend and even though part of our family already lives in South Lake Tahoe we would stay here together all over again. The setting couldn't be beat. The accomodations fabulous with amenities and classy comfort. We took full advantage of the kayaking and sunny setting just relaxing and lounging. In the group biking up donner pass, rock climbing, swimming, running around the lake, and hiking, were also taken advantage of. The property owners were delightful to work with. We were pleased to have stayed here with the water feature more quiet, private and peaceful than actually being on the lake! Enjoy!

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5
My family recently stayed at this beautiful home for five days. It was a lovely trip. Our group included six adults, and my son, who is 3 1/2 years old. This home is huge, so there was plenty of room for all of us. We kayaked everyday along the peaceful creek right outside (there are four kayaks in the garage, which is a major bonus!) We also spent time walking around the town of Truckee, picnicking by the lake (a short walk to a park on the lake), reading, and cooking dinners together. Although we spent a lot of time outside, my husband also appreciated the comfortable lazy-boy chairs in front of the TV, and my son was thrilled with the playroom. My favorite memory will be of sitting on the back deck, in reclining patio chairs, at dusk. The creek and the surrounding trees were so serene, the air felt so fresh, and it was so quiet! I would highly recommended staying at this property. The description of the home and location on the website are accurate. The home was very clean, with new appliances, nice cookware, etc. I needed to contact the owner with a question when we first arrived, and he was easily accessible, helpful and friendly. We hope to visit again!
