3 Bdrm, 2 Bath, Sleeps 9, Clean & Close To Beach

Welcome to our Donner Lake vacation rental. Our cabin is available May through mid- August. Our cabin is located in the West end neighborhood and is walking distance to the public beach. The house is super clean and bright, a great way to spend your vacation.

There's a master bedroom + bath with shower upstairs. A king size bed and picture window overlooking pines.

Downstairs there are 2 bedrooms. Bedroom one has a double bed as well as a double bed/twin bed bunk. The twin top has a weight limit of 150 lbs, so is perfect for the kiddos. Bedroom two has two twin beds. The downstairs bathroom has a bath only.

The living area is nice and open, great for family get togethers. The living space opens up to the dining space which leads into the clean, open kitchen.

This is a great neighborhood that we feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of, we hope you have a great vacation in arguably one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

About Shannon Chadwell

We are both originally from the Reno area, and currently live in Seattle. We spend as much time as humanly possible in the winter in Tahoe/Truckee and grew up spending our summers at Donner. We love the community, the amazing sunsets, and of course, the snow.

Shannon Chadwell purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Shannon Chadwell chose Truckee

We choose Donner because of summers on the lake, it's amazing proximity to some of the best skiing around, and the short drive to Woodward (you & your kids will never want to leave).

What makes this cabin unique

PROXIMITY. You are 20 minutes to Tahoe, 10 mintes to Boreal/Woodward, 10 minutes to Truckee, and a 10 minute walk to West End Beach.

And - just steps to killer hikes in the Donner Lake wilderness with unbeatable views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi you two, yes we had a wonderful time while we were there. Staying at the house was the way to go. We started our days out with morning walks, and enjoying the deck w/ music, and coffee. The weather couldn't have been better while we were there. We took advantage of the beautiful surroundings; Lake Tahoe is a beautiful backyard to play in. :) We rented bikes and rode around Lake Donner, which was pretty, enjoyed the pretty little town of Truckee. Found some good restuarants, and was part of a beautiful wedding celebration at a regional national park on the beautiful Truckee River.

Girl-Cation!!!

  • 4 of 5

My girls and I had an amazing Girl-Cation and this cabin. The 8 of us loved the location and comfy beds. There was room for 8 of us, and the front patio was a perfect hang out spot. Everything was organized and labeled nicely. We plan on going back again next year.

Love this house & can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned for our third visit to this wonderful Donner Lake house and it keeps getting better. We love the quiet neighborhood, the walk to the lake, and the proximity to beautiful trails. We also appreciate the family-friendly setup with the open kitchen, dining area, living room and deck. It's easy and fun to cook or grill while everyone hangs out. The house is always spotlessly clean when we arrive, and the owners and property manager are extremely responsive - they even replaced a broken washing machine within a day when we said it was important to us to have. It feels like a home away from home in so many ways!

All the comforts of home at Donner Lake!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed about two weeks at this wonderful place on Donner Lake. The house is very comfortable and clean and was just perfect for all my needs. I was able to work in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood in the woods, visit many of the amazing local high country trails for hiking and running, visit historic landmarks and just relax! I would recommend this house for anyone wanting amazing Tahoe/Donner access, a kid friendly home away from home on the shores of beautiful Donner Lake!

Donner Lake charmer

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here with our 2 Schnauzers. It's a very cozy home, extremely well equipped. It's in a quiet neighborhood . Unfortunately, our stay coincided with the worst of the King Fire, so smoke was our constant companion. Luckily, the house offered plenty of games and puzzles when going outside wasn't healthy. Donner Lake is a beautiful place to spend time. The owners are wonderful to work with and very helpful.
