Overview

Donner Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our roomy 4 bedroom home is designed for family fun and comfort! Relax on the expansive decks, loll in the living room in front of the cozy stone fireplace, play pool in the sunroom or just sit back and relax in front of the giant HD TV.

* New internet-connected thermostat means you will arrive to a *warm* house

* New tankless water heater means hot showers are always available. New furnace is quiet and efficient for a totally comfortable stay.

The big newly upgraded open kitchen invites a cooking collaboration and the well stocked cabinets will serve the chefs in the crowd. New appliances, granite countertops, and other great upgrades.

The sunken living room has several couches and everyone's favorite, a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window with a view of the surrounding forest. One couch is a queen sleeper and the sectional is very comfortable for an extra bed or two. Sit anywhere and enjoy the giant HD TV over the beautiful stone fireplace.

The adjoining dining room has a big dining table and additional log bar, that combined, seat 12 for that large family dinner. Watch the big game from the log bar with the best view in the house.

Bedrooms:

Master Suite - is like its own retreat with a king bed, private deck, walk-in-closet, computer desk with Wi Fi, TV and bathroom suite with huge double spa shower. The Master bedroom also has a huge round 'cuddle chair' in the bay window, a favorite quiet spot for reading that great novel.

Log Room - has a twin trundle bed that can be set up as a king. It has beautiful views of the forest.

Ranch Room - has a four poster queen bed with a memory foam topper, and beautiful views to the forest out back.

Bunk Room - Great for the kids, has a twin over full bunk with a twin trundle underneath. The TV and camp decor make this a favorite hang out.

We keep the kids (and grown ups) busy with the pool table, board games, horse shoes, sledding and of course the big screen TV + 2 TV's in the bedrooms.

About Cynthia Rothmeier

We both gravitate to the mountains. My husband grew up in the German Alps, and I lived in the Rockies in Montana

We have traveled all over Europe and America and always prefer the countryside, especially the mountains.

We have have always vacationed in beautiful places with our large extended family, and we keep coming back to Truckee. We love to ski, hike, ride horses, mountain bike, boat, swim and especially just relax. Tahoe Donner is the best place we have found to enjoy all that we do together.

Cynthia Rothmeier purchased this house in 2011

Why Cynthia Rothmeier chose Donner Lake

We have been visiting the Tahoe area all our lives and kept returning to Tahoe Donner. We frequently rent with another family and love the roomy homes, well planned facillities and easy access to HWY 80 and the surrounding areas.

We enjoy the area year round and especially love all the Tahoe Donner amenities - ski hill and equestrian center just up the road, Rec center with pools, gym and hot tubs, lakeside beach club and so much more.

We wanted a large family friendly house with easy year-round access and lots of parking. We found all that and much more in our new home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is near the top of Tahoe Donner resort and backs up to an open forested preserve. We can hike, bike or cross country ski right out our front or back door and go for miles.

We have room for our whole extended family and/or another family we invite up to share a fun vacation together.

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We scheduled a family vacation with 5 adults and 1 10 year old. The home was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and stress free. The beds were comfortable and enough living space for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped for making family meals spacious for everyone to pitch in. The master bath/shower has dual shower heads with a tankless water tank. And the master suite is on the "3rd" level...perfect for some peace and quiet. Lots of extras we didn't expect.

Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The family and I loved it here. I heard "can we stay forever?" It was our very first time renting a cabin and we are so happy that this cabin was our first. The cabin was very clean, which is a big deal for me. Loved the kitchen, cooked up big meals for the family, fully stocked on everything. We had an amazing time. We will definitely be coming back soon. And the master bedrooms bathroom shower was wonderful and the beds were so comfy. We were so far from home, but this cabin made us all feel at home:) highly recommended!

Wonderful Vacation Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our four-day vacation at this property in Tahoe-Donner. The house was roomy and comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent time at Donner Lake and the museum which was very close and enjoyed seeing a variety of wildlife on our hikes behind the property. We had a wonderful time and will definitely rent this home again!

Comfortable Rental Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a comfortable stay and enjoyed our vacation. There were a few things that didn't work properly and a few things missing but I guess that's expected with a vacation rental. We were told we would arrive to a warm home and we arrived to a 58 degree house.

great place

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Felt very homey, clean, and comfortable. Rooms fit more than enough people. Close to everything. The upgrade on the house is beautiful. The owner responded very quick to whatever request we needed. We requested a late checkout and she gave it with no problem.
