Our family a group of 20+ had an awesome time at Max's house. It has the perfect view of the lake. The house had everything we needed, clean, and enough parking for 5 to 6 cars. Max was excellent to work with. Excellent house for the price. My family are looking forward to booking it again!!!!

Overall a great choice for us

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion was at Donner in July. We had 3 houses for all the families, just under 50 people, of all ages. Max's house was the best location and by far the best view, right on the lake. It had all the aminities and served all our needs. It was clean, a nicely upgraded older house, and access was easy from the parking area. The animal themed decore was great entertainment for the grandkids. Max was excellent to work with. Excellent value for the price.
