Rustic Donner Lake Cabin
Rustic lake view cabin on Donner Lake. It's all about the location.
Lovely mid-week getaway!
First, let me say that we were having such a good time at Donner Lake that we would have booked an extra night if we could have. We came with our pup, and the big, fenced- in deck in front with table, chairs and loungers was perfect for both her and us. There's a dock a stone's throw across the street for easy sunning, swimming and fishing and (bonus!!!) an ice cream shop a short walk away. The cabin was very clean, our bedroom was prettily furnished (if very tiny) with a comfy bed. The cabin is by no means fancy, though care has been taken to update bedding, curtains, light fixtures. The downstairs carpet is stained, as is part of the couch, and the doorknob of the front door is barely attached to the door and there's a slight musty smell I associate with all cabins in the woods. But those are all minor. The main reasons I didn't give the cabin a higher rating was: 1) the kitchen cupboards were completely bare, save for a mostly empty bottle of vegetable oil and a container of black pepper. No salt, no spices, nothing. So if you're going to stay here, you have to bring EVERYTHING you need for cooking. 2) LOVED the expansive views ... but not the cars and trucks zipping back and forth all day on the road below. 3) the bedrooms are too small to accommodate nightstands, so there's nowhere to put a glass of water or books or anything else. But given the scarcity of dog friendly houses in the area, I felt lucky to find this one and am definitely considering coming back again next year.
Thank you for your feedback, Cindy. We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay! As a general rule, we do not stock pantries in any of our units. The door knob has been fixed and couch cover is taken care of! We hope to host you again soon.
We had an arrival time of 4PM but with a note that the property might be available early if we asked. We received a note that morning that the property would not be ready until the agreed upon 4PM. Once we arrived, we discovered that there were no towels throughout the house. This included towels for showering, to wipe our hands and dishes with and paper towels as well. The description had assured us that the kitchen would included these items. Despite 3 phone calls and assurances that the items would be delivered, it was not until the second late day of our arrival that the items appeared on the front deck (After we had already purchased items to help us through). The view was lovely, but the general property has not been well maintained. The front deck railing was loose. The faucet in the main bathroom had never been secured. The carpet and furniture was very dirty. There was no dishwasher soap despite the request to run the dishwasher upon departure. Overall, the value for the money spent was not up to par. I would not recommend renting this property unless you just don't care about all the things missing.
We are sorry to see our guest was so disappointed with their stay. Our property manager refunded this guest for the items they purchased. We hope we have an opportunity to impress this guest in the future.
