About Gail Karppinen
I am a fun and energetic person, who enjoys fixing up my vacation rental for my guests to enjoy the many amenities of the Donner Lake area.
Gail Karppinen purchased this House in 1985
Why Gail Karppinen chose Truckee
Access to wonderful Donner Lake. Quick on and off route 80 from San Francisco and Reno areas. Donner Lake is less crowded than Lake Tahoe. Proximity to north shore ski areas and shopping. Love getting up early and seeing the sun rising on the east end of the lake. Also love sitting on the deck swing having a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening, looking out at the lake.
What makes this House unique
Donner Lake North Shore Ski area's. Purchased property as a ski cabin but found that the summers up at Donner Lake were even more fun with so many activities within close proximity. Plenty of shopping, bike riding, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, water skiing, free music concerts in the parks,white water rafting. There is even a CURVES workout franchise in Truckee. Don't miss the Hospice Thrift Shop in Truckee, Mountain Hardware and all the good restaurants. Sugarbowl, Royal Gorge and Donner Ski Ranch are just up old Route 40 from the west end of the lake. Tahoe Donner, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine, Tahoe Cross Country and Homewood are within 20-30 minutes. Diamond Peak and Mount Rose, a little further. Kayaking at Sand Harbor and touring the Thunderbird Lodge are quite spectacular.

Great location and home!
We took our four kids to Tahoe to snowboard and rented this house. It was the perfect location and accommodations. The owner was fantastic to work with and very thorough. We will definitely rent this property again!
Good location, tidy and clean
The house was 10 minutes from Boreal, where we were skiing. The house was very tidy and clean. The host was very accessible and flexible. The views of the Donner Lake were beautiful. Everything went really well. I imagine it must be a great place to stay in summer too.
Awesome view, geat location, clean cabin
Would definitely stay again.
My family really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The owner, Gail, was very friendly and quick to respond to my questions. She is easy to work with and very accommodating.
The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, pots, utensils, etc.
There is a nice view of the lake and an easy walk to the beach.
Donner Lake is a beautiful place to stay.
comfortable lakeview cabin
We enjoyed a long weekend break at Gail's cabin which is very comfortable, has a lovely view of Lake Donner from the deck. Gail leaves the pass for the private beach but we used the public one right next door which has kayak and paddleboard hire. Its an easy 15 -20minute drive to Lake Tahoe if you want somewhere with more of a buzz, but Lake Donner is a great place to relax.
A wonderful week
the property is ideally located in reference to the lake and beach area. Easy access off of I80, has a beautiful view of Donner Lake. The home is well supplied with the necessary items to make a stay very comfortable. We love our time at this home and hope to return.
Owner supplies renter's beach pass for homeowners' beach in front of house in the summer. Daily fee still required though. West end public beach down the road a little farther also requires a daily fee.
