Panoramic Donner Lake views! Easy quick access to beach, activities & downtown.
We welcome you to our charming home which is just across the street from Donner Lake. There are no homes on the water side, so you get unobstructive views of Donner Lake! Walk across the street to any of the public docks and jump in the water.
There is one flight of stairs to get up to the level home. There is a master bedroom with a queen bed, bunk room with four built-in bunks, and a loft with one queen and one king bed. It has one full bathroom with a separate door to the toilet and an extra curtain to separate the shower area for even more privacy. The kitchen is fully stocked, including dishes, silverware, pots/pans and dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer in the garage. We supply everything you'd expect - fresh linens and towels, toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, bar soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap.
The home was built in 2004 and up until now, was only used by family, so it's in great condition. At the beginning of the driveway is the "main" home where we live. That means we are nearby to answer any questions, but will also let you know if it is too loud. Relax, enjoy yourself, and BBQ on the deck with the best views of Donner Lake. :-)
We ask that you leave your pets at home. We love furry animals but unfortunately can't allow them. We also ask that there is no smoking in the home or on the property.
We look forward to hosting you! :-)

We are in our mid-30s with two little kids. My husband went to high school nearby and we love Truckee due to the endless outdoor options, including skiing in the winter and the beach, hiking, boating and paddle boarding in the summer.
Laura purchased this House in 2004
Why Laura chose Truckee
This is the first time we've opened our home to renters, so it is in pristine condition and tenderly taken care. The property is one-of-a-kind in that it has unobstructive views of the water (you feel like you are on the water). Peacefully watch the boats and kayaks go by. The property is 1 mile walking distance to the public beach and has plenty of free piers right across the street to jump in the water or launch your own canoe. We live in the main home at the beginning of the driveway so we are nearby to be a reference for hiking trails, restaurants or wherever you'd like to go. Our guest home is great for families since there's a built in bunk room, space for kids on the spacious deck, an extra Pak N Play and high chair, and both lake/mountain views to relax.
What makes this House unique
1. The views! See Donner Lake from EVERY room in the home. 2. Access: plenty of free piers across the street, walk/bike to the beach, easy access from both freeway exits, bike up Donner Pass to breathtaking Vista Point, or run around the entire 7 mile lake! 3. Plenty of amenities: washer/dryer in the garage, dishwasher, bathtub for bathing kids, and NEW grill. 4. Relatively new: built in 2004, it is in pristine condition.

Beautiful and clean home overlooking Donner Lake with pristine views!
Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. We will be sure to book again in the near future!
Laura and Erik provide an lovely place to relax. In addition to a warm and cozy place, the view is amazing! Laura and Erik take care of all the details, and even took into consideration a small request. We could not be more pleased with this trip that was planned at the last minute, yet came together beautifully with the help and attentiveness of Laura and Erik. We will be back for sure!
Better than advertised. Views are really great + a (very) good bottle of wine left for us to celebrate the Holiday with. All 7 beds and the couch are extremely comfortable; the house has a great kitchen, too.
Fantastic stay with a great view
The house is very clean and the perfect size for our family of 4. The owners are very respectful of your privacy. The deck had ample space and a fantastic view of donner lake. They had all the amenities we needed and more; couldn’t have asked for a better vrbo and we will utilize it again on our next trip!
Picture perfect place!
Laura and Erik’s place is a perfect getaway. The windows of the house have unobstructed views of the lake. The house itself is well stocked and perfectly maintained. It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. I would definitely stay here again. :-)
Wonderful stay in an amazing house on the lake
Laura and Erik were wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable and seamless. The house is amazing. Unobstructed views of the lake, plenty of space for our family of four, and it was well equipped. We plugged right in and felt like we were in our own home. Couldn’t ask for anything more!
Please inquire and we can recommend activities and babysitting services if needed.
