The house was absolutely over the top beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a large group (there were 10 of us ladies)... we hung out and played games, went to the beach, had an evening in the hot tub... so fun! And John got back to us so promptly with all of our questions... it was tastefully decorated, beds were comfortable, linens were provided, and all the little extras made it super homey...I will definitely book this gorgeous cabin again!

What a great time we had on our annual family vacation. The cabin is beautiful, and the deck was our favorite spot to hang out. John really took care of us. Definitely would love to stay here again. Thank you for having us.

The Perfect Get Away House

  • 5 of 5

My family and some great friends stayed at the "Donner Dayz" in July 2018. The property is gorgeous and the house is amazing! You feel welcome the moment you walk in to the moment you leave (trust me you won't want to though) The view of the lake through the large windows is magnificent and the tree scape makes you feel like your living the right in the forest. The kitchen has a great set up for cooking home cooked meals and enjoying your time away with family or friend. It has plenty of room to sleep too. The beds are super comfy and super clean. The master bath has a wonderful Jacuzzi size tub that is great for relaxing, plus two other large baths as well. The three tiered patio deck is great to sit outside and enjoy the view and the forest aromas. The first level has an awesome hot tub that comfortably fits 6-8 people. The location of the property is fantastic too, you are about a five minute drive from the private beach ( which is great!) and 15 minutes from downtown Truckee. I would definitely stay at Donner Dayz again and hope to book it again with my family in the fall.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Great home with all the amenities, gorgeous views, hot tub, keurig coffee, and lots of places to relax--the porches, the deck, firepit area...With all nine of us in the family and a one year old baby, we were all so comfortable and we each had lots of room to be alone to read, nap, do yoga, meditate, and lots of room as well in central living area to be altogether for meals and being a family.

Such a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our large family weekend away!!! The deck is perfect for playing games or just sitting in the sun taking in the beauty all around. All the beds including the bunk beds got rave reviews from all our guests.

The home owner was available and in communication leading up to and during our stay answering and questions we might have.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay!
