Overview

Donner Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful location, family friendly cabin in the heart of Sierra ski country.

Enjoy the views of beautiful Donner Lake and Schallenberger Ridge in the Central Sierra Nevada Range from our cozy cabin's large deck or front windows. Our cabin is located in the middle of snow country. Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Donner Ski Ranch, Sugar Bowl, Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner are all within 15-20 minutes from our door. Ice fishing up the hill at Prosser Lake. Donner State Park, which is just a mile and a half from us at the end of the lake, has trails for snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

As our cabin has direct access to the lake; in summer, fish or swim off the dock in front of us, enjoy the many water sports possible on the lake, or take a 20 minute ride over to North Tahoe to enjoy the 'big lake' on the mountain. There are 7 golf courses within 15-18 minute drive, historic Truckee and the Transcontinental Railroad to explore. Rock climbing, hiking, shopping, live music /concerts, mountain biking in the area, are all possibilities. Gambling/Casinos in Reno about 30 minutes up Interstate 80.

Our cabin is approximately 1400 square feet in size with space for two cars to park right by the back door. The main entrance to the cabin is from the back. As you enter, you have the kitchen on your right and a door into the main level bedroom and bathroom on your left. This bedroom has a queen bed and the bathroom has a tub/shower combination. Beyond the eating bar is the living area with an 8 foot dining table on one side and a couch and loveseat facing the fireplace on the other. Downstairs there are two bedrooms and a small bath. One bedroom has two twins and the other bedroom has a queen bed. From the downstairs hallway , you can go into another hallway that has a washer and dryer, a wood room that houses the wood for the fireplace and a door to the outside to take steps down to the road and lake. The loft is open to the main level and has 4 twin beds. Three of these beds are very close to each other (best for kids). There is another parking pad at lake level for one car.

THIS IS A NO SMOKING PROPERTY.

About Norma and Bill Markley

We built this cabin as a young couple in 1977. It is our 'first child' and has continued to be updated throughout the years. Our two sons grew up knowing this place as an extension of home and now our grandkids do. When we first built this, we thought we would enjoy it mostly in winter but find we actually, like the summers even better.

Why Norma and Bill Markley chose Donner Lake

Being skiers and outdoor enthusiasts, we fell in love with the area. Our goal was to build a cabin with a view and easy access to skiing, hiking, and water play. We were able to purchase the small piece of ground with the view of Donner Lake and direct access to the water and plowed roads in the winter. We then, 4 years later, built a cabin on it.

What makes this cabin unique

Location! Lake right below us where we can actual see our family on the dock. Northstar, Sugar Bowl and Squaw Valley just 15 minutes away. Historical Truckee and the major ski resorts have many scheduled events throughout the year.

A wonderful place to stay! We felt so at home.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at your wonderful home. We had everything we needed and even used one of the bikes. We had a great view from the deck where we would read and watch the stars at night. We had nice walks around the lake and sunning on the shore. Thanks for the relaxing time, we really needed it.

Exceeded our expectation!

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home, kept up well, and very clean. Beautiful deck for summer, with new umbrella, table seats 10! We had 3 cars, and kept 2 in the driveway and one down by Donner Pass Road.Only detraction was car noise from Donner Pass Road. With windows open at night for breeze, you hear cars. Beautiful Lodge decor, nice details in every room. Loft above kitchen perfect for older kids, but steep stairs/banister for 5yrs and under. Toddler gates provided at both stairways, which helped manage kids in environ. Extra futon cushion and Play/Pack crib helped families adapt. Very helpful owners, we had a question, they called us back. Friendly quiet neighbors. Beautiful view of Donner Lake thru trees! Easy walk down to large public dock. NO CASINOs, no Tahoe traffic! Yay Donner Lake! I would highly recommend it to families/friends! Truckee is a great town, with a Safeway nearby, and cute stores.

A PERFECT Cabin on Donner Lake!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a group of friends for a ski trip weekend and we could not have dreamed of a better cabin. We fell in love with this cabin as it is an absolutely quintessential mountain cabin (wooden interiors, perfectly decorated, etc.), and it has a wonderful and warm social space for hanging out in.

The location is fantastic- an easy drive to ski resorts and for summertime you can't beat it's location on the lake.

The owners are great to rent from- very friendly and communicative. The cabin was fully equipment with everything we needed and everything was in good working order.
