Property description

Note: Due to the severe drought conditions and consequent water shortage at the lake, we are not renting the property this summer. Please keep us in mind for a vacation next summer.

Frog Lake is the ultimate private getaway. Leave the hustle and hassles of daily life, and say goodbye to TV, the internet, and telephone interruptions. With your nearest neighbors miles away, you will enjoy an incredibly quiet vacation at your own private mountain lake.

Within the crest of the Sierra Nevada, at an altitude of 7600 feet, lies the beautiful glacier-carved Frog Lake. Overshadowing it is Frog Lake Peak. Nestled on this remote lake property and surrounded by 640 acres of spectacular wilderness is the Frog Lake cabin complex.

Here you can enjoy the comforts of the rustic granite Frog Lake Lodge and cabins. Explore your very own 40-acre alpine lake and the private beaches that surround it. Choose from the many exciting outdoor mountain activities, or just kick back and take life slowly.

Frog Lake is a short 30-minute drive from Tahoe Donner, and is located north of Lake Tahoe and Donner Summit. It is convenient to the Reno/Tahoe International Airport.

Amid nature's awesome display of huge granite boulders, alpine evergreens and wildflowers, you will find a pristine lake and the secluded Frog Lake cabin complex, consisting of 'Frog Lake Lodge,' 'The Boy's Cabin,' 'The Cook's Cabin,' and the 'Caretaker's Cottage.' A caretaker lives on the premises in the 'Caretaker's Cottage' and is available as a resource to guests.

Frog Lake Lodge, constructed of hand-carved granite in the 1930s, provides a spacious, pleasant gathering area with a stone fireplace. Adjoining the kitchen is a dining area that seats 10 comfortably. A master bedroom with full bath and walk-in closet sleeps two. The enclosed loft sleeps four guests. The granite porch provides a spectacular view of the lake and Frog Lake Cliff. The deck is a great place to read, BBQ, and socialize.

The Boy's Cabin has two bedrooms joined by a three-quarter bath. The Cook's Cabin has a kitchen, three-quarter bath, Franklin wood stove, and beds.

After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, you are ready for the day's activities. Teeming with native trout, Frog Lake is ideal for fly fishing. Enjoy swimming, canoeing, or rowing, and hiking around the lake. Two secluded beaches offer the perfect getaway for those needing extra privacy.

Climb to Castle Peak and view the Sierra north to Mt. Lassen and south to Lake Tahoe, or take a short hike and discover magnificent mountain and lake views. Situated next to the crest of the Sierra, Frog Lake provides quick access to the Pacific Crest Trail system. Nearby are stables where you can go horseback riding.

If you wish to experience one of nature's heavenly gifts on earth, this is the destination for you!

NOTE: Frog Lake's unique location means that it has a short vacation season. Please book well in advance to secure your desired time; reservations on short notice may not be accommodated.
