Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi you two, yes we had a wonderful time while we were there. Staying at the house was the way to go. We started our days out with morning walks, and enjoying the deck w/ music, and coffee. The weather couldn't have been better while we were there. We took advantage of the beautiful surroundings; Lake Tahoe is a beautiful backyard to play in. :) We rented bikes and rode around Lake Donner, which was pretty, enjoyed the pretty little town of Truckee. Found some good restuarants, and was part of a beautiful wedding celebration at a regional national park on the beautiful Truckee River.

We are both originally from the Reno area, and currently live in Seattle. We spend as much time as humanly possible in the winter in Tahoe/Truckee and grew up spending our summers at Donner. We love the community, the amazing sunsets, and of course the snow.

Shannon Chadwell purchased this cabin in 2013

We choose Donner because of summers on the lake, it's amazing proximity to some of the best skiing around, and the short drive to Woodward (- you & your kids will never want to leave)

PROXIMITY. You are 20 minutes to Tahoe, 10 mintes to Boreal/Woodward, 10 minutes to Truckee, and a 10 minute walk to West End Beach.

And - just steps to killer hikes in the Donner Lake wilderness with unbeatable views.

GREAT CABIN FOR FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our three night stay at your Donner Lake cabin. We live less than two hours away so this was a perfect get away for my husband and I, our daughter and her husband and our two toddler grandchildren. The cabin had plenty of room for the six of us and was very comfortable. The location was wonderful with an easy walk to the lake and beach playground and also some beautiful hiking trails (Historic Donner Trail) just a few streets away. Thank you for sharing your Donner Lake cabin with us. It is a great cabin for family fun and we look forward to returning again!

FANTASTIC CABIN

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Lake Tahoe more times than I can count but this was our first trip staying at Donner Lake. Needless to say we absolutely loved it and look forward to renting this cabin again. This cabin was homey and comfortable and was not furnished in the typical second hand 30 year old furniture found in so many rentals. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and serve 6 of us. There were plenty of comfortable beds. The wifi was speedy. The Roku let us watch movies. White water rafting is 15 minutes away. If this cabin is available I may never stay in Tahoe again. Thank you for the wonderful weekend getaway.

WONDERFUL STAY AT DONNER LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the weekend here with our toddler and had an amazing fall getaway. This sunny, warm, cheerful house is perfect for hanging out day or night; we loved the wood-burning stove and spent a good long time poring over the collection of 90s college-rock CDs. The wifi and cell signal extender were nice touches (but we didn't even turn on the TV). The kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils we needed and the entire house was perfectly clean when we arrived. Loved the quiet street, the neighbors were friendly, and we enjoyed the ~20 min walk to the beach. We'll be back!

I highly recommend hiking the old wagon trail up to Donner Pass (and beyond). It starts just a few blocks away; google "Historic Donner Trail" for details. There is so much else to do around here in the summer, too -- amazing cycling, swimming in the lake, hiking and trail running, kayaking, and so on. Donner Lake is one of California's gems and staying at this house is the perfect way to enjoy it!

WONDERFUL TIME AT DONNER LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
We were here twice this summer. This was a very comfortable home and great for the kids - a VERY quiet neighborhood where we could let the 12-year-old boys in our group have the run of the area. They loved wading and floating on the nearby creek - they thought they heard wolves (coyotes)! They also kayaked and paddle boarded at West End Beach, a short walk away. There is a really cool hike to Donner Pass along the old Lincoln Highway Trail that starts just 3 blocks away. The deck is perfect with a grill, tables and chairs for having meals outside. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need for cooking and entertaining. Lots of extra linens, games and books, too. You can tell the owners love their home here!
