This is a great vacation home for large groups! Our pricing makes it possible to have 6-14 people at the same location with first-class accommodations for a very reasonable per-person rate. You can't sleep that many people in a nice hotel for the price! Additionally, you can eat here instead of going out for all meals as you would staying at a hotel. It makes going out for some meals fit your budget!

Wonderful Mountain Cabin for a Family Thanksgiving Traditon!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd or 4th year staying at the Donner Lake Mountain House. We love staying here during Thanksgiving. Allan and Jeannine Tice have a beautiful cabin which accommodates our guests as all linens and towels are provided. The cabin is clean and the Tice's are easy to work with. The floor plan is wonderful especially for putting children to sleep downstairs while us adults play games upstairs. We love coming up here every Thanksgiving!

We had a lovely stay at Donner Lake Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome! Spacious, full of light, it has all of the supplies in terms of kitchen/bathroom necessities, bardgames, extra towels, etc. We loved the View of the Lake and it is only 3 mins walk to it from the house. Another nice thing was the dining table - it was huge and all 11 of us could have a dinner together. House is conveniently located next to Sugarbawl and Sqaw Valley skiing resorts. I highly recommend this home for holidays!

Great getaway house for a 3 generation get together.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, up to date, and better than the online pictures portrayed. Sometimes online pictures are from years gone bye, or staged beyond reality. Not so here. The place was great. It was great to find a place to house young grandchildren, parents and grandparents. I was hesitant about whether there would be enough room on the deck to sit, but it was sufficient.

One word of caution. Though we are not TV watchers, and we did not need or even have time for TV, others should know that there was no TV connection that I could find: Only a DVD capability which we did not use.

In summary, the place was just what we wanted for our family get together. The Owners made themselves easily available by telephone and were most gracious, helpful and accomadating. We recommend staying here.

This is my family's second time staying here because we loved it so much last year. The house is located very close to the water with great views. It's spacious with everything you could need or want.

Beautiful place! Comfortable and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! Beautiful house and location. Lake right across the street, Downtown Trukee is only a few minutes away.

With a fully equipped kitchen and lots of extras, this house was a treat to cook in. Plenty of space for sleeping and tv downstairs for the teenagers, while the adults could visit and enjoy the view upstairs.

Can't say enough good things about this place!

Thanks to the Tice's for being soooo friendly and flexible. Will definitely stay again!

Donner Lake is the perfect getaway- quiet lake living that is still close to everything in the North Lake Tahoe region! Close to many ski resorts such as Sqaw Valley, NorthStar-at-Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, Mount Rose, Sugar Bowl, Boreal and Donner Ski Ranch. The historical town of Truckee is a short 5 min. drive, with river rafting on the world-famous Truckee River and the Donner Memorial museum! Wide trail ranges - from beginning to skilled hiking and biking. 2 Championship Golf courses within close range. Centrally located, visitors can also take longer trips to Reno (45 min.) for a show or gambling, California's Gold Country for history and maybe some gold panning, or Lake Tahoe to name a few! Lake Tahoe is close- Approx. 35 minutes from North Shore and 90 minutes from South Lake Tahoe's shows, skiing, gambling and other attractions. Boat launch 1 mile away; small watercraft launch 200 feet with a picnic area and fishing pier with handicap access and toilet facility at Shoreline Park.
