Donner Lake condo description

WELCOME - For the first time in 25 years, we are offering our fantastic LAKEFRONT TOWNHOUSE to families for their enjoyment. Come see why Donner Lake is often described as the JEWEL OF THE SIERRA’S.

The west end and sunny side of Donner Lake is MAGICAL and by far the best and most sought after place to spend your summer or winter vacation. There are lots of other places to stay in Truckee but none of them can offer lake access right out your door, sand beneath your feet, a boat dock and recreational lake sport rentals. Why spend your precious vacation time in a residential subdivision looking at the house behind you when you can be waterside basking in the sun and playing in the placid waters of Donner Lake.

Our townhouse has 2 upstairs bedrooms that will sleep 5 or 6 comfortably. One has a queen size Hickory bed, night tables with reading lamps, and dresser. The kid’s bedroom features a Log bunk bed, that can sleep 3, and a night table. Also available is a twin/single rollaway bed and a port-a-crib for any little ones. Also sliding glass doors that gives both bedrooms access to a small deck.

There are 2 bathrooms upstairs just off the bedrooms. One has a large double sink vanity with full size mirror and separate toilet/shower area for privacy. The kid’s bath has a single sink vanity, toilet, and bathtub/shower all in one room. Downstairs is a centrally located ½ bath for everyone’s convenience.

The fully furnished kitchen with beautiful knotty pine cabinets and granite counters features built-in refer/freezer, dishwasher, self-cleaning oven with smooth glass cooktop, and built-in microwave. It is also equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, blender, waffle maker and all the usual kitchen gadgets and utensils.

The corner woodstove with river rock wall makes this room warm and cozy, and with its panoramic views of Donner Lake this is where we spend most of our time relaxing. The dining area is also in this wonderful room. Two large sliding glass doors extend the living area out to a deck that overlooks the sandy beach and stairs to the swimming area so you can keep your eye on the kids.

This is where the action is with its entertainment center and comfortable sofa. Whether it is the family watching a new release video or the kids playing their video games, this area located at the top of the stairs overlooks the Great room opening up the living area to the upstairs. That comfortable sofa can also sleep an additional guest.
