Not only was the property clean and WELL stocked, the owner, Joe was extremely helpful.

We have rented for years at Donner Lake, but our search is over this will be the place we come back to for years to come! ....and yes like the other reviews say " this is the best value for the money"

Excellent upscale retreat

  • 5 of 5

We make multiple trips per year to Donner Lake, summer and winter, and have stayed at many places on the west end of Donner, and this was among the very best and THE best value for the money. The "cabin" is large, more of a chalet with just enough of the cabin vibe. It is a great retreat, with mountain views looking west at Donner pass and is located on a quiet cul de sac about a half mile off the lake - which is perfect for more privacy and solitude while still having immediate access to the best that Donner Lake itself has to offer. The large kitchen is well stocked with REAL cookware and serving utensils, as well as spices, oil, etc., the kind of thing usually missed at other places we have stayed where we end up having to buy a whole box or jar or canister of something we are only going to use a drab of. The owner was great to work with and we definitely hope to stay there on our next trip.

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

Great Stay!!! Couldn't have asked more a more comfortable spot for me and my family to stay. There is something for everyone here whether it be a day at the beach, a beautiful hike, a day relaxing on the deck, quick jaunt down to see Lake Tahoe. this cabin is in the middle of it all. Don't even get me started on the stars here at night. your family will not lack in comfort or pleasures in this steal of a cabin. Mine sure didn't.

Thank you patty and Joe

We have spent many summers staying at various cabins in the west end of Donner Lake and this one is by far one of the more modern and comfotable homes (can't even call it a cabin) we have stayed in. The kitchen, living room, dining area(two by the way) and breakfast/bar all flow together in one 'GREAT ROOM' with a beautiful view of the mountains from the very end of a cul-de-sac where the home is located. There is a nice deck with plenty of chairs to seat all. The beds are all very comfortable and the upstairs master is very spacious. The owners have been great to deal with. Hope to be back for many years!

Two Thumbs Up!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very clean, and has plenty of space, comfy beds (no backaches!), generous supply of towels, sheets, kitchen supplies, and paper products. It is located on a quiet cul de sac with a view of a mountain. It is within walking distance to West End Beach and the area's property owners' beach both on the edge of beautiful Donner Lake. We easily traveled to Lake Tahoe, Reno, and Virginia City because of the close proximity to the highway. The owners responded promptly to emails and questions, and could not have been more accommodating. Thank you Joe and Patty!

Wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for one week. Wish we could have stayed even longer!!. The owners were the ones who met us when we arrived and they are the nicest, most welcoming couple. We loved the home. Everything we needed was provided and things we hadn't even thought about were there too. We had our three children with us, ages 14, 18 and 21. They all want to go back. We rode our bikes, walked, hiked, fished, swam, kayaked, paddle-boarded, played games, relaxed and just spent time together. The location on the West End is perfect. When our 14 year-old wanted to bike to the private beach to meet her sister, we did not have to worry at all. I definitely recommend this home. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing vacation.
