My family and I spent MLK weekend 2011 here. We had a great time, the cabin is roomy and well maintained. Everything was very clean. We particularly enjoyed the large hot tub which had great views of the surrounding woods. Of course the woods behind the cabin were our favorite part! They made for some great hiking! We were very satisfied, thanks! -Fred

Owner response: Hi Fred, Thank you for taking the time to say a good word about our rental. It's a good feeling to know that you got what you wanted out of your stay. I am especially pleased we could get you in on such short notice, and have everything fall right in place. I hope you will be renting with us in the future...and do tell your friends. Regards, Diana

The best way to spend a winter weekend
We are just coming off of a 4 day stay, and are looking forward to coming back soon, we had such a good time. As with any vacation home, a maintenance issue had to be taken care of and the owner did so right away. The kids and I were able to build some toboggan runs right outside the door. The hottub was in good working order (as was everything else), so the youngest enjoyed it, even though the wife and I were not brave enough to tackle the cold weather in our swimsuits. The home is the perfect distance from town, stores are close enough for needs, and far enough that you still experience solitude. We were no able to enjoy the lake, but it is within walking distance of the property. I strongly encourage a visit to "Old-Town" Truckee, the ice rink, and maybe a day trip to Reno, if you desire a little "gaming".

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I have owned our Donner Lake home since 2004. We had skied several years in the area and finally decided we'd like to be a little more rooted during our vacations. It has been such a nice get-away for us, as we make the trip up whenever we can...even for overnighters, but especially for the extended school breaks. We find it difficult leaving the comforts of our second 'home'. Our kids have really enjoyed the get-aways too, and have really gotten to live the other side of the coin of city living. It has been a valuable addition to our family time together.
Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
Donner Lake was a perfect choice considering its close proximity to many ski resorts and its calm and beautiful mountain lake surroundings. It's nice being somewhat secluded from the hustle and bustle of some of the other high-traffic resort areas. We initially never dreamed we'd put our home in the pool of rentals (it is solely our second home), but with our kids getting older and having many obligations in school, we have a hard time seeing the property sit unused when it could be enjoyed by others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Aside from the skiing? Summertime is a dream at Donner Lake....picturesque, quiet and relaxing. We enjoy the beach while swimming, waterskiing, jet skiing, playing horse shoes, volleyball, basketball, and BBQing at our home owners association private beach. We spend most of our time entertaining in our home (and hiking up our creek on our property), as it is a comfortable environment that allows us to share with friends and family. We are creating many great memories.... We spend little time in front of the TV (unless we're watching movies) and more time, playing board games, cards games, and conversing! We purposely left our living area TV-free and, Alas! we have converted even the most stubborn of couch potatoes!
