Recent Donner Lake reviews

  • Beautiful location.

    "We had a great time at this beautiful property. The location gets 6 stars. It's about as picturesque as one could imagine. Lots of deck space to hangout and by the end of the summer the lake was low enough to even leave a little beach to play on. There was a plumbing issue that was not fixed with 5 visits by the local plumbing company - it impacted our vacation but the owner was very generous in refunding part of the cost of the rental. We don't blame the owner for this. It must be hard to find good people in the off season. Overall we would absolutely return! We loved the house."

  • What a treat!

    "This location was awesome! It seemed like we were in our own alpine paradise far away from anything but 4 miles away is the old town of Truckee. Everything is there that you could ever need or want. I took my wife here for a surprise 26th honeymoon getaway :) The owner David was very easy to work with and obviously cared that we enjoyed our stay at his own personal family lake house. VERY nicely furnished - none of the typical rental garage sale furnishings here! It's almost like being on Kauai... you start thinking about moving in! We relaxed by the fire... plugged in Pandora to the stereo system and played our favorite 80s music... This is the note I sent David after our trip... "Everything was very nice. Your lake house is absolutely beautiful! My wife had an idea we were going to the Truckee area but didn't know for sure... I just told her to bring warm clothes and pack for 3 nights. We went to Pianeta's Italian for dinner, went to see the gorgeous views from Rainbow Bridge and the top of the pass on old route 40, checked out the amazing Ritz Resort at Northstar, walked and shopped old main street Truckee and had lunch at Burger Me. We spent an hour in Ace Hardware... what fun - they have EVERYTHING! That is the most awesome hardware store ever! I'm an early riser and it was great to get up while it was still dark and watch the changes on the lake through sunrise and after. The weather was cold but dry and felt much warmer than it was. On Tuesday afternoon in Truckee it was jeans and t-shirts - almost 70F and warmer in the sun. We had a great time enjoying each other and being together... your lake house just made everything better! We were sad to leave but glad to have the memories.""

  • All the comforts of home

    "First of all thank you so much Sandra for all your help and info. The lake house was very comfortable and had everything that we needed. It's central location made it possible,that we could walk or drive. It is very beautiful there, the lake nearby, cold and refreshing. We were a group of 6 and it was perfect. The kids had a blast with the WII. Thank you... The best part was the beds, we slept so comfortable, and sound. The kitchen fully stocked with everything that we needed. What more can I say, just a wonderful place. Sandra thanks, and hopefully we can come back and visit again. Big hello's from the Van Ruijven family, Netherlands"
