Instead of VRBO charging the security/cleaning deposit, I require you to send me a check for $250 that is refundable after the cleaning fee is taken out and the balance will come back to you by check if there is no damage after your stay. You can send the check for $250 to Gail Karppinen 2170 Dant Blvd Reno, NV 89509, once your reservation is accepted. Cleaning usually runs about $150, depending on how the house is left.

Memorial Weekend minimum of 3 nights. Mid-June through mid-August minimum of a week. Number of nights is negotiable outside of that time period. Contact me as time period may be negotiable.

Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Southside Highlands (Truckee, CA, USA):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
