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!

                                                                  Sharon Z.Citrus Heights, California

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!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We appreciate your kind comments enjoy having your family and friends come to our home!

                                                                  Great house, thoughtfully prepared, right by the lake

                                                                  Andrik C.

                                                                  The house was lovely. The amenities and documentation where laid out in detail (even the light switches were labeled). It was great to have an entertainment area downstairs separate from the main living room upstairs. If you want to watch a movie, bring a DVD with you or something that can connect to the TV via HDMI. Donner Lake was a quick walk down the hill.

                                                                  Walkable to the Lake!

                                                                  Cristina R.

                                                                  Great location, right next to the lake, though winter renters should note that chains are highly recommended to reach the house if there is snow on the ground. Two living rooms on two different floors allowed our four families to have the kids play downstairs, while the adults played cards at the large dining room table. Owners very responsive. Would love to come back and stay in the summer!

                                                                  Beautiful home with all the amenities!

                                                                  Jeannine Bay Area, CA

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 vacation house

                                                                  Xianfeng Stephen Z.

                                                                  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.
