Great property and location.

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very helpful and responsive. The property was as advertised and was very comfortable for our family of 5 and a small dog.

Easily located for skiing at Sugarbowl, Boreal, Squaw, Northstar and the rustic Donner ski ranch. Awesome to have a garage to park in as it snowed and snowed when we were there.

Would also be great in the summer as the lake is two blocks away.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home! The layout was simply perfect. Large kitchen and great room with beautiful Windows, fireplace and high ceilings and nice balcony to hang out on. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and beds were very comfortable! Was also lovely that it is such a short walk to the public piers, breakfast, and store. The neighborhood walks with our dog were bonus as well. Was lovely being able to park in the garage. The owner was very helpful when we had quick questions too. We will be back for sure!! Love Donner lake....

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful mini vacation in Tahoe. The house suited our needs perfectly.

Loved that we were able to bring our dogs. It's close to the "dog beach" which we accessed

daily. Would definitely return to this property.

Great family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is great. Seldom when you get to a rental home does the real thing outshine the pictures on-line but this property did. Kitchen was wonderful, well stocked and lots of dishes, pots and pans. Donner lake is a quick walk away and remember to take in a sunset on one of the docks on Donner Lake. This property does take pets which very few properties in the area do. The owner answered my many questions about the property before our stay and was very helpful. This is a really great place and a wonderful place for a reunion. Thanks to the owners for a fantastic time.

A steal !!

  • 5 of 5

I feel that this cabin is so reasonably priced for what you actually get. It is literally ONE block off Donner Lake. The cabin itself is beautiful and new and it is situated on a very quiet street. We enjoyed our stay greatly!
