Southside Highlands Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

The cabin sits on Lakeview Creek and Donner Lake. Listen to the babbling creek and unwind on our deck as you look out over the lake. Or use our membership and make the short walk, or bike ride on our cruiser bikes, to the 'private' beach club. The deck area is the prime entertainment spot. From the deck you hear the rushing creek, and you get a nice view of the lake. It's a sunny little spot. Perfect for afternoon BBQ's and entertaining. Inside the pine log walls take you back in time, but there are modern finishes. The kitchen has all new stainless appliances. The living room has a 'smart' TV with internet capability. In fact the entire cabin has wifi, and two of the three bedrooms have TV's as well. For longer stays you will appreciate the laundry room. And there is plenty of parking 'off street'. It's a level driveway that is plowed all winter, and there's a covered walkway, so no snow shoveling to access the cabin! 5 miles to Sugar Bowl :)

About The Owner

We bought and restored this cabin in 2011-12. Our family of five love this place. We have a Collie and Aussie that love running around the property and going to the lake. We ski at Sugar Bowl, and boat and paddle board on the lake in the summer. We road and mtn bike as well. There are terrific mtn bike trails right down the street. And the hiking in the area is truly amazing.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2011

Why The Owner chose Truckee

Buying a cabin close to skiing and the lake was a dream come true for us. The fact that the mtn bike riding is so superb right from the property was a huge surprise. And Donner Lake is just our style of relaxation. We like Tahoe, but Donner has a mellower vibe, less hectic, and more alpine.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a cabin. Its fully renovated with modern conveniences, but the pine logs make it feel rustic and alpine. This is a great family spot. You can park the car and never use it again once you arrive. Everything is close by. Take the canoe for paddle, or if you brought your boat hit the lake. Morning pulls are the best, but evenings are awesome with the sun setting over Donner Peak. And the fishing around Lakeview Creek is the best on Donner Lake. Just don't tell anyone.

Dog owners perspective ;-)

  • 5 of 5

We are owners of 2 large dogs (>70 lbs). Knowing this would make any rental owner wary/bulk, we made sure we were honest about our dogs and what we expected. Jim, the owner appreciated our honesty and worked with us, allowing us to have a great stay. This cabin has a gated, enclosed deck. This was PRICELESS - the railings/fencing come up about 4ft, enough to secure our dogs - a perfect spot to clean up before going inside, and a good spot to get the dogs leashed up before leaving. It was also a nice outdoor space for the dogs to nap or stare down chipmunks. The cabin is cozy, comfy and unpretentious. Everything was easy to clean. The floors are tile (?), but there were enough rugs put down so our dogs didn't slip walking around. We were able to take our dogs on beautiful forest trails that were close by (w/in 5-10 mins). These trails were easy to get to and easy to hike. Our one senior arthritic dog had no problems keeping up. One caveat - There were a few neighboring dogs that wandered unleashed - they seemed friendly, but avoided them to be safe. Our dogs were always leashed when in the neighborhood.

Having stayed a full week at this property, we can say all the glowing reviews are well deserved. We feel fortunate to have found a place that the WHOLE family enjoyed. We will be back for sure.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came to Donner Lake for a family wedding and we could not have picked a more perfect cabin!!! This cabin is beautiful and the perfect space for three couples! The bathrooms are so spacious. The bedrooms are cozy and the beds are comfortable! The living room/kitchen are perfect for hanging out and cooking together. The deck overlooks the river and the cabin is lake view. The mornings are so perfect sitting on the deck. The kitchen had everything we needed! I cannot believe how cheap it was to stay at such a nice roomy cabin! This cabin is not only a deal but it is fabulous!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was another great stay in Donner Lake! My wife, two young kids and I (and the dog) had an amazing stay. We pedaled the family down to the beach every day to enjoy the lake, then headed home to BBQ in the evening, taking in the wonderful view of the lake and listened to the creek flow by. It is a perfect spot that is just a quick drive away from Truckee if you need to grab any essentials. It's cozy inside, but with plenty of room for the entire family to sleep comfortably and wind down at night. Jim is a great host and we will absolutely be back!

Perfect size and location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect sized place for four adults and 1 toddler. Upstairs was cozy with great ambience, the bedrooms and bathrooms were all without issue. It rained much of our trip so we spent a lot of time in and around the cabin. The big decks and flat driveway were good for letting the toddler out with an umbrella and made a great snowman making area when we woke up to snow on Sunday. Jim gave us the perfect amount of communication. We'll be back!

Great cozy getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

I went to the cabin after some snow, and had a great time with the family. It was a nice clean cabin that had everything that we needed. A quiet and intimate location, that was right by the beach, and close to the snow parks. We really enjoyed our time at the cabin and we would go back again. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, and the store was a few minutes away. We went to a free snow park by Boreal, which was about 10 minutes away. Our 2 year old son had a blast, and our dog had fun too.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. Now that we have more snow, you can also go to Donner Ski Ranch. It's only 5 minutes up Old Hwy 40, and they have a small tubing hill and a bar/cafeteria. It's nice. Please come again, and Happy Holidays.

Fall 2015

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and had everything we needed. View of the lake from the master bedroom is beautiful. We liked having the back end of Donner Lake State Park so close. Great place to take our dog for a walk. The deck is very relaxing and a great spot to barbecue and visit with the family. We can't wait for our next visit to the cabin.
