You'll be situated on the northeast shore of Donner Lake, a brief walk to Donner Memorial State Park where you'll find interesting information about the area's history, as well as hiking trails for a lovely meandering stroll. The west end of the lake has a sandy beach, perfect for swimming, and your own shared dock is ideal for relaxing and soaking up the sun, launching your boat, or dropping in your line for the day's catch. Sugar Bowl Resort is under seven miles away, so winter travelers can revel in easy access to all the powdery fun they like.

The open design and loft area give this condo a spacious feel, and the living area is the perfect place to gather after a day of exhilarating outdoor activities. Create scrumptious meals in the full kitchen, then get cozy in the living room for some after-dinner drinks.

You'll have free WiFi access, so you can easily locate your next destination and stay in touch with friends, while the private washer/dryer allow you to pack light. Begin and end your days on the balcony overlooking the water and revel in beautiful mountain views while you watch the train pass on the other side of the lake.

Spacious condominium

  • 4 of 5

I loved the view from our condominium. It had a wonderful view of Donner Lake. It has its own private beach and dock. Enjoyed just being near the lake.

Lovely lakeside apartment--with management quirks

  • 3 of 5

This second-floor condo, right on Donner Lake, is lovely. The apartment itself is great—fully equipped, very comfortable, with large windows and a nice balcony overlooking the lake. However, the faceless management company does, let’s say, leave something to be desired. If you need to contact them, be prepared for phone holds. (I gave up the first time after 10 minutes.) The electronic door lock worked as promised on entry, but any way to re-lock it was baffling, and once reached by phone, the management representative couldn’t figure it out either. (I was then given the combination to a physical key lockbox). When we arrived, the kitchen still had some refuse: Open pet food in the refrigerator (ironic, as pets aren’t allowed), and coffee beans spilled (ironic, as they don’t leave any coffee for guests). A day later, someone came in without knocking—and this turned out to be a repairman who had been told the apartment was vacant (no: we still had two days to stay) and was there to fix a toilet (it wasn’t broken) and the electronic lock (which also wasn’t broken, but the repairman could now show me how to lock it!). As I say, this is indeed a lovely and great place to stay, but be prepared for oddities….

Owner's Response: We apologize for the quirks this guest experienced. We have followed-up with housekeeping. We suggest guests call the provided local numbers while staying in their rental rather than the main line for Vacasa. Thank you!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned today from a 4 day stay and rebooked for another stay in three weeks to do some bike riding. Good base camp to explore the Tahoe and Truckee area or even Reno.

Lots of shops and restaurants to visit in Truckee . I can only imagine what a great location this is during the summer.

The unit is on the top floor. It was clean, well maintained and welcoming. Nice to have a keyless entry so you don't have to worry about losing a key. The unit has a house binder of instructions which should be updated so you aren't getting conflicting information. Wanted to make a fire, there were ashes in the stove and a stack of wood, but the binder said do not use the stove. Also there are no spices in the place not even salt and pepper, so bring your own. I would definitely recommend this place for couples to families.
