Donner Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (7 Days Min.Sun.thru Sun., Sleeps 8, Maximum Allow

Gorgeous Lakefront three story log cabin renovated in 2010 exemplifies what living on Donner Lake is all about. Located on the 'quiet' side of the lake away from the freeway and noisy Donner Pass Rd (old highway 40), listen to the sounds of the lake and the year round babbling brook next to the property, not traffic.

This bright house has large windows throughout providing unbelievable unobstructed views of the lake, mountains and famous Castle Peak. In the morning and throughout the day enjoy the scenery.

Watch the sun go down over Castle Peak while pouring your favorite beverage. Climb in the very private hot tub or throw your favorite foods on the outdoor gas grill. Drop a line in the water off the private pier at one of Donners' very best fishing spots and add your catch to the meal. Eat outside or inside at one of two dinning tables while listening to your favorite music on the outdoor speakers or inside with surround sound. Or watch a DVD or HDTV on the 42' flat screen. Add even more ambiance? Build a fire in the new wood burning stove and enjoy.

The Master Bedroom is located on the third floor (top floor) with a king size bed and full bath attached including a large soaking tub that easily accommodates two. There is also a flat screen HDTV. There is a second bedroom on the same floor with two twin beds. The middle floor bedroom has a queen bed, a TV and a full bathroom just twenty feet away. The main living area has a large screen HDTV and leads out to a large deck with an unobstructed panoramic view of the lake. The lower floor bedroom has a king size bed, a TV and a full bath located just around the corner from the door. There is also a large 65' TV with a DVD player on the lower floor and a gas log fireplace for cool nights. This floor also leads to a deck and outdoor hot tub with great views of Donner Lake.

About Brad & Nancy Gill

I grew up at Donner Lake in the late 1950s and 60s with my family when my Dad decided to build a vacation home. In 1975 I bought my first vacation home at Donner summitt and have owned 5 more homes since around the lake since. Learning to ski, fish, camp and hike Donner and its beautiful surroundings I am hooked for life.

Brad & Nancy Gill purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Brad & Nancy Gill chose Donner Lake

I have visited and stayed at many lakes, cabins and resorts throughout the Sierras and have always found that Donner suits the needs of my family the best. It is simply a spectacular place

What makes this cabin unique

You will be able to enjoy some of the best fishing, water sports and views anywhere in or around Donner Lake

Great for active families

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year renting Brad and Nancy's home and we will continue to return. The pier is ideal for kayaking - we brought our own although rentals are available nearby. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need to bbq and eat while sitting on the deck. The Wi-Fi works well. This was important since we did have to do some telecommuting. The house was clean and spacious!

Amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This is our family's second year staying at Nancy and Brad's lovely vacation home. They view is breathtaking, the beds are extremely comfortable (very important) and the cabin is equiped with all the emenities needed. We hiked, kayaked, went flat tubing, rafting and at night played pool or just sat watching the sun go down on the private pier. We just got back and the kids are already planning next year! Thanks Nancy and Brad!!

Nice house but too expensive

  • 3 of 5
House was nice location but sort of dirty. Lots of cob webs and the beds/linens didn't look like they were changed before we got there. We were there for a week and there was 1 very small garbage can for all of trash (way up the street from the house). The location was very quiet, but for such a nice place, there should have been at a minimum, a dish washer. Too expensive, but nice house.

Owner's Response: As is our standard practice, shortly after our tenants arrival we contacted them by phone to insure that they got in all right and walked through the house with them to answer any questions or concerns they might have. They mentioned to us only that they found a hair in one of the bathtubs. We immediately offered to send back our cleaning service to clean the tub. The renter told us not to worry about it. We use an extremely professional and thorough local cleaning service. This is the only complaint we have ever received. For those of you who have concerns, we have many repeat renters and satisfied customers who are more than happy to tell you of their positive experiences.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home.... Plenty of room, nicely decorated, GOOD beds, the VIEW is spectacular! We stayed for a week (and did not want to go home). We brought our boat and the dock was easy to use and convenient. The kids went between swimming off the dock to the hot tub when they got a little cold all day.... What a fantastic week.... Thank you Nancy and Brad for sharing your home with us...
