Donner Lake House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Nestled in a pastoral setting on a tree-studded incline, this newly updated, four-bedroom cabin with room for ten sits on the west shore of Donner Lake. The public beach is just a few blocks away, and you'll also enjoy access to a private homeowners' beach.
After a day at Donner Lake, kick your shoes off and relax in the cozy, tongue-and-groove paneled living area. It can get chilly around here, and when it does, click on the new gas-fired stove and swap stories of the day's adventures. Or, take advantage of the digital cable on the flat screen TV with DVD player and VCR. Sun a little too bright? The new Hunter Douglas blinds will take care of that. Settle into the big, plush sectional sofa, or step out onto the deck with a cup of coffee for a breath of fresh, mountain air.
Come mealtime, you'll be ready in this fully equipped, brightly lit kitchen with lots of room and hardwood floor, so those spills will clean up easily. In addition to a big refrigerator, an oven, and dishwasher, you'll also have a microwave for those quick snacks and that popcorn for movie night! Or, give your cook a break and enjoy a meal at one of the many eateries in downtown Truckee, Tahoe City, Crystal Bay, Incline Village, West Shore and near the South Shore casinos, just over the Nevada line.
This charming and spacious cabin has four bedrooms. The first floor has a king bedroom and a bath with walk-in shower. Up on the second floor are three additional bedrooms and a full bath with shower/tub combo. The kids' room has a twin-over-full bunk bed, and the last two bedrooms each have king beds. The master suite is set apart with its sliding glass door, leading to a beautiful private balcony where you can step out and admire the stars. There's even a laundry room with washer/dryer on this level as well, so you never have to worry about running out of clean socks!
The Donner Lake area is loaded with fun things to do. It's just a few blocks to the lake from this great cabin. There, you'll have access to a private homeowners beach that includes an expansive beach area, BBQ pits, horseshoe pits, picnic area and a basketball court, as well as a clean restroom facility. Passes to the beach are included with your stay.
For great shopping and a rewarding dining experience, make the 10 minute trip over to Truckee. Little Truckee - recently added to the National Register of Historic Places - is a charming mountain town with museums, shops, and galleries. With over 75 restaurants, it's a go-to place for "foodies" of all stripes! Float the boat on gorgeous Donner Lake. Landlubbers can have their day at Donner State Park, where they can hike and bike. Anglers: You can cast your line in the nearby Boca Reservoir Truckee River.
Whatever you like to do in whatever season, this wonderful cabin in the Truckee/Tahoe area is waiting to be your host and send you home with great memories and a burning desire to come back soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family was there over Memorial Day weekend, (this was our 2nd visit)and I can't say enough good things about the cabin! What I love most about it, is that we are all able to fit (my husband, 2 kids, his mom and dad, SIL and her husband and son) with plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable! The cabin has every...thing you need and there is plenty to do whether you like fishing, hiking, or just hanging out and playing some games! It's very comfortable, and affordable too (especially when mom and dad pay!) We will definitely be back. Thanks Michael and Andrew for sharing your place with us! xo
