Donner Lake cabin description

Welcome to our Donner Lake vacation rental. Our cabin is available May through mid November on a weekly basis. We are on the West end neighborhood 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 with a double 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 turn in to 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.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: 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.

          Why the Owner Chose Donner Lake:
          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)

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          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.
