Short walk to Donner Lake.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We love the mountains and all they have to offer. We've been coming to Donner Lake for 15 years and have finally bought our own wonderful place!! We hope you love it as much as we do!!

Why Donner Lake:
The location is perfect. Walking distance to the west end beach and 10 minutes from Sugar Bowl, it's also the first exit off 80 as you get to Truckee - easily 15 - 30 minutes less in the car for travelers coming into the area. The private owner's beach at the west end is fantastic and we are happy to provide renter's passes to our guests. Our cabin is not only light and bright, it has views of the mountain off-piste skiing from Sugar Bowl - you may see an occasional daring backcountry skier or boarder, on their way home from a day in the powder. It's a perfect spot in both summer and winter. Our kids grew up skiing and playing here and we hope to continue the memory-making for many years to come.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We LOVE the huge windows in our cabin. The kitchen has appliances that are like-new and it is appointed and stocked well for our guests. The loft is the perfect spot for movie night or games and the bedrooms are comfy and well appointed. The downstairs bedroom even has it's own fireplace; a wonderful mountain luxury in both summer (the nights are still pretty chilly) and winter. We have a 2 car garage and can also provide a blender, BBQ and beach chairs for the adults in summer and snow toys for the kids in winter.
