Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was way beyond perfect - thanks so much for all. Having Alans place next door was also ideal. We made your house the base of operations and were able to have bedrooms for everyone which was convenient.

Your house is absolutely beautiful and we plan to become regulars. My sister in law said it best when she remarked that Donner was "...singularly the most beautiful place" that she had ever been!

Great spot, great memories and great times. Thanks so much for making it all possible.

Best - Michael

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

This location was awesome! It seemed like we were in our own alpine paradise far away from anything but 4 miles away is the old town of Truckee. Everything is there that you could ever need or want.

I took my wife here for a surprise 26th honeymoon getaway :) The owner David was very easy to work with and obviously cared that we enjoyed our stay at his own personal family lake house. VERY nicely furnished - none of the typical rental garage sale furnishings here!

It's almost like being on Kauai... you start thinking about moving in! We relaxed by the fire... plugged in Pandora to the stereo system and played our favorite 80s music...

This is the note I sent David after our trip...

"Everything was very nice. Your lake house is absolutely beautiful! My wife had an idea we were going to the Truckee area but didn't know for sure... I just told her to bring warm clothes and pack for 3 nights. We went to Pianeta's Italian for dinner, went to see the gorgeous views from Rainbow Bridge and the top of the pass on old route 40, checked out the amazing Ritz Resort at Northstar, walked and shopped old main street Truckee and had lunch at Burger Me. We spent an hour in Ace Hardware... what fun - they have EVERYTHING! That is the most awesome hardware store ever!

I'm an early riser and it was great to get up while it was still dark and watch the changes on the lake through sunrise and after. The weather was cold but dry and felt much warmer than it was. On Tuesday afternoon in Truckee it was jeans and t-shirts - almost 70F and warmer in the sun.

We had a great time enjoying each other and being together... your lake house just made everything better! We were sad to leave but glad to have the memories."

Beautiful House with Splendid Views

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home. It is spacious, well decorated, and fully equipped with every comfort one could need. The location is ideal... you are literally steps away from the lakefront. Only about a 5-10 min drive to downtown Truckee. This is the perfect vacation spot for a summer get away (and I am sure in the winter as well). Totally recommend staying here! David is a pleasure to interact with, and very quick to answer questions / concerns.

A Wonderful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your home at Donner Lake. The weather was beautiful and there was still some Fall color in the trees. The view of the lake from the house is fantastic. The boys caught some fish off the dock and shore. We also took a 25 minute trip to Cabelas just over the State line. Wow, that place is huge! Truckee is a nearby adorable historic town as well, and learning about the Donner Party at the Immigrant Trail Museum was also very interesting. Donner Lake reminds us very much of Huntington Lake in the Sierras east of Fresno that we used to sail. Thank you for taking care of every detail for us! Hopefully we can make a trip to Donner a yearly tradition for our family, and we would love to return to your lovely home again! Sorry....I just can't call that a "cabin"! :-)
