Very cozy clean house for large group in a quiet and lake accessible location
"We reserved the house for spending our vacation during the Memorial Day weekend. The owners were very responsive and answered promptly to all communications. The house is on a hill side, spanning between one upper level road (entry location) and one lower level road (lakeside access). We had a large party with adults and kids, and naturally, there were initial concerns on parking. However, when we arrived, we found that there was enough space for 5 standard sedans, 2 in the garage and 3 in the driveway. Moreover, there is an additional parking spot on the lower level road. Please note that GPS location of the house might be a few houses off (nightime arrival needs help of Torchlight, as there is no streetlight). The house is very spacious with nicely decorated rooms and fully stocked kitchen with all assortments of cooking utensils, serverware and cutlery you can use. Everything is very nicely maintained. The living area is spacious for a cozy gathering of friends, with a nice fireplace for providing comfort. The cooking area is adequate for preparing food for a large group. There is a separate nook upstairs, which became the favorite play area of the kids. It can also be converted to an additional sleeping area. The Wifi connection inside the house was adequate. The neighborhood is very peaceful and access to the lake is just walking distance. The marina is just 2 miles down the road, where you can rent boats, kayaks and canoes, for enjoying some water sports. The pride of ownership showed in the house and we took care to maintain the property in its good condition throughout our stay. We hope to come back in our future visit to Donner Lake, and relive my favorite time, feeling the cool misty weather of early morning and unwind with a cup of hot coffee in the deck facing the Lake."

"A great long-weekend escape from the valley heat! This clean, well-appointed and comfortable mountain retreat offered the perfect place to relax after big hikes - located near easily accessible trails in Tahoe Donner community and the Pacific Crest Trail. The outside deck was peaceful and ideal for coffee and breakfast, champagne and appetizers, dinner, and trying to count the millions of stars in the night sky - with cool mountain breezes blowing through the phenomenal aspen trees! We were treated to a Stellar Blue Jay in her nest with babies under the front door eave, and chipmunks scurrying about. Evenings were spent playing pool on the fantastic pool table downstairs and board games. The cabin offers a large number of wonderful books to read and movies to watch - if so inclined. Kitchen had all the amenities, barbecue on the deck was perfect, and there was a washer and dryer if needed. Have to say that the beds are so comfortable for a great night's sleep. While we did not use the Tahoe Donner amenities during our all too short of a stay, there are many for use - pool, bike rentals, tennis, golf, horseback riding. You could spend a week there and still want more! We will definitely look forward to another visit to this lovely and centrally located home. The owners are wonderfully accommodating and obviously take pride in their home."

"Great for a large group!
My friends and I rented this house out for a 6 day 7 night period in Jan. There were ten of us (all 30-35 yrs old, young professionals), and this house was absolutely perfect for our needs.
Inside, this house was huge and very welcoming to a large group. There is easily enough room to sleep 10 people. There is a large living space on the main level that we spent nearly all our time in. The main room is equipped with a pool table, television, and opens into the kitchen. The living room has multiple couches, large fireplace and large dining table. It also opens up to the back deck and meadow. The back deck was very nice with chairs, tables, and of course the hot tub. The kitchen had every ammenity we needed as well.
The other great thing about this house was the location. We were only a mile or two from the Lake. Same with the distance to the casinos. At the end of each night, we had a very short cab ride home. During the day you get a substantial amount of sunlight on the back porch, and although the house is in a neighborhood, it still seems to be a very private house and we had no complaints.
As a new group of renters we were definitely a little weary of renting a place that may have been too "delicate" for that many people. While this house is very well decorated and has a lot of nice furniture and other amenities , it still feels comfortable enough to be able to relax in and not constantly worry about whether you're going to break something.
I would recommend this house to any group of friends, and honestly, I think it would be perfect for a large family or group of families on vacation with kids. Its homely, well maintained, prime location, and truly delivered on everything promised!!!"
