Recent Donner Lake reviews
"We have stayed here twice this year with friends from Alameda. It is truly wonderful with a beautiful large deck and kitchen overlooking the lake. Quality beds and fully furnished with everything you need to make meals and relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty."

"My friend and I just returned from a three night stay at the "Squirrel's Nest". We were very impressed with how well stocked the cabin was; it had all of the comforts of home. The cabin definitely shows pride of ownership. The location is perfect- right across the street from the lake but very quiet. The view from the loft bedroom was beautiful. The morning walks with the dog were so peaceful. No problems with WiFi connectivity and our cell service was strong (T-Mobile and Verizon). Mary, the owner, was very responsive throughout the rental process and even texted the afternoon of our arrival to make sure we had everything that we needed. Five stars!"

"We make multiple trips per year to Donner Lake, summer and winter, and have stayed at many places on the west end of Donner, and this was among the very best and THE best value for the money. The "cabin" is large, more of a chalet with just enough of the cabin vibe. It is a great retreat, with mountain views looking west at Donner pass and is located on a quiet cul de sac about a half mile off the lake - which is perfect for more privacy and solitude while still having immediate access to the best that Donner Lake itself has to offer. The large kitchen is well stocked with REAL cookware and serving utensils, as well as spices, oil, etc., the kind of thing usually missed at other places we have stayed where we end up having to buy a whole box or jar or canister of something we are only going to use a drab of. The owner was great to work with and we definitely hope to stay there on our next trip."

"We had a wonderful few days in the "Treehouse." Very comfortable house, fully stocked with everything one could need, felt very much like a home. Located conveniently to Truckee, restaurants, grocery, a beautiful state park and all kinds of recreation. The kids loved the boat rentals 5 minutes away and the lake, as did we. Perfect for families with young children (ours are 8 and 7)."
