Gail Karppinen purchased this house in 1985
Access to wonderful Donner Lake. Quick on and off route 80 from San Francisco and Reno areas. Donner Lake is less crowded than Lake Tahoe. Proximity to north shore ski areas and shopping. Love getting up early and seeing the sun rising on the east end of the lake. Also love sitting on the deck swing having a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening, looking out at the lake.
Donner Lake North Shore Ski area's. Purchased property as a ski cabin but found that the summers up at Donner Lake were even more fun with so many activities within close proximity. Plenty of shopping, bike riding, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, water skiing, free music concerts in the parks,white water rafting. There is even a CURVES workout franchise in Truckee. Don't miss the Hospice Thrift Shop in Truckee, Mountain Hardware and all the good restaurants. Sugarbowl, Royal Gorge and Donner Ski Ranch are just up old Route 40 from the west end of the lake. Tahoe Donner, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine, Tahoe Cross Country and Homewood are within 20-30 minutes. Diamond Peak and Mount Rose, a little further. Kayaking at Sand Harbor and touring the Thunderbird Lodge are quite spectacular.
This was the second time we stayed at the Donner Lakeview Cabin -- we love the location and the amenities. Easy access to ski resorts - just minutes from the highway but far enough that you escape the highway noise. It's a beautiful lakeside setting as well. Gail, the owner, is lovely to work with and she takes great care in maintaining the cabin and ensuring you have all the info you need for a comfortable stay. We will return!
We went up to Truckee for a ski weekend. Gail's house was good fit for our family. Lovely views of he lake. The home is warm and inviting with all the comforts you would expect. Ours girls had a great time sledding around the property after a long day of skiing. There were a couple of sleds in the garage for us to use. Good times!
Gail was beyond helpful and accommodating! The house had everything we needed and its location right by the lake is beautiful but the town was super accessible. Will definitely use in the future, possibly in the summer this time.
The cabin was amazing and Gail was very helpful and always avalible for any questions.
The cabin was amazing and just the right size! We woke up every morning to beautiful views of Donner Lake.
Beautiful home with all the comforts we needed to relax. Very comfortable, clean, and bright. Gorgeous view of the lake, we walked everywhere! Owner responded quickly with answers to any question we had. Great summer or winter stay, easy access, especially in snow.
Owner supplies renter's beach pass for homeowners' beach in front of house in the summer. Daily fee still required though. West end public beach down the road a little farther also requires a daily fee.
