This unbelievable Donner Lakefront House is located on the north shore (south facing-lots of sun), 1/8 mile east of The Donner Market and 1/2 mile West of Donner Lake Memorial Park.
Fully renovated in 2001 and recently updated with new appliances, furnishings and finishes, this residence was beautifully built with large picture windows which give full lake views from the common living areas and master bedroom. The view is truly awe inspiring!
Enter the home through the stone foyer finished with built in bench and coat racks. A King size bedroom with private bath are located to the right. Additionally, to the right a 1/2 bath is offered. Enter the great room through the open kitchen; updated with black granite countertops, top of the line appliances and a mobile wooden kitchen island. The great room is beautifully decorated with Restoration Hardware furnishings and finishes in reclaimed wood, leather and warm colors. A rust colored accent wall to the west makes the wood floor pop. A smart TV and stereo system, daybed for extra seating and adjustable kitchen bar stools round out the living space.
Enjoy the large, partially covered deck off of the great room, equipped with outdoor furniture, and one of most stunning views of Donner Lake imaginable. Walk down the deck steps to large lake level deck, gas bbq, pier, walk in sandy beach and large grass lawn and fire pit.
Journey up the stairs from the great room to the main bedroom floor. The Master Bedroom faces the lake with 180 degree lake views. This room is set up with a small patio, king bed, airy bathroom with a step in tub and stand up shower and cozy entertainment area with a Smart TV, gas fireplace and modern seating area.
And, the most amazing view! Simply stunning!
Other sleeping areas accessible from the second floor include a king bedroom (shares a bathroom with the loft) and a loft with sleeping space for seven kids and fun sitting area w/smart tv. A full bath with bathtub/shower combo and laundry room round out this space.
Lastly, a new addition to this rental is the finished ground floor play room. Accessible from the main floor via one flight of stairs or from the French doors leading to the ground floor deck, this level is a perfect hang out for kids and adults alike! Engineered hard wood flooring, smart tv, pool table with ping pong topper and comfy leather couches complete this inviting space.
Breakwater Inn also offers three studio cabins for additional guests. Managed by the Owner's family, these cabins are furnished with queen comforts, twin size pull out couches (each cabin sleeps 3), a small kitchen and private bath. Each cabin can be booked in addition to the big house for $125/nt or $800 per week, plus taxes and cleaning. Please let us know if you'd like more information.

Three paddle boards, private boat mooring at the pier and a two car detached garage round out this property.
