Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

WELCOME - We are offering our fantastic LAKEFRONT TOWNHOUSE to families for their enjoyment. Come see why Donner Lake is often described as the JEWEL OF THE SIERRA’S.

LOCATION

The west end and sunny side of Donner Lake is MAGICAL and by far the best and most sought after place to spend your summer or winter vacation. There are lots of other places to stay in Truckee but none of them can offer lake access right out your door, sand beneath your feet, a boat dock and recreational lake sport rentals. Why spend your precious vacation time in a residential subdivision looking at the house behind you when you can be waterside basking in the sun and playing in the placid waters of Donner Lake.

BEDROOMS

Our townhouse has 2 upstairs bedrooms that will sleep 5 or 6 comfortably. One has a queen size Hickory bed, night tables with reading lamps, and dresser. The kid’s bedroom features a Log bunk bed, that can sleep 3, and a night table. Also available is a twin/single rollaway bed and a port-a-crib for any little ones. Also sliding glass doors that gives both bedrooms access to a small deck.

BATHROOMS

There are 2 bathrooms upstairs just off the bedrooms. One has a large double sink vanity with full size mirror and separate toilet/shower area for privacy. The kid’s bath has a single sink vanity, toilet, and bathtub/shower all in one room. Downstairs is a centrally located ½ bath for everyone’s convenience.

KITCHEN

The fully furnished kitchen with beautiful knotty pine cabinets and granite counters features built-in refer/freezer, dishwasher, self-cleaning oven with smooth glass cooktop, and built-in microwave. It is also equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, blender, waffle maker and all the usual kitchen gadgets and utensils.

GREAT ROOM

The corner woodstove with river rock wall makes this room warm and cozy, and with its panoramic views of Donner Lake this is where we spend most of our time relaxing. The dining area is also in this wonderful room. Two large sliding glass doors extend the living area out to a deck that overlooks the sandy beach and stairs to the swimming area so you can keep your eye on the kids.

LOFT

This is where the action is with its entertainment center and comfortable sofa. Whether it is the family watching a new release video or the kids playing their video games, this area located at the top of the stairs overlooks the Great room opening up the living area to the upstairs. That comfortable sofa can also sleep an additional guest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I received this kind email from one of our recent February guests:



Your place was amazing!! We got in at 7:15pm and couldn't see much out

the windows. We were pleased with your place in general and from your pictures

we really didn't grasp the amazing view from your sliding glass windows. We

thought we were in heaven the next morning! Our son who is 6 saw it first and

came and woke us all up (at 6am) to see it. We did like the modernness of your

place and it didn't seem old and dingy like other places we stayed at - the kids

actually get scared in those. The place was well stocked and comfortable.

Once battleship was discovered by our kids, the battle was on every time we

were in the townhouse.



We would like to stay there again and again!

What A View

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay here. It felt like a cozy cabin tucked into a roomy condo, and watching the trains, snow sheds and day break over Donner Lake was such a treat. We had absolutely everything we could have wanted.

Perfect family place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this townhouse a couple times already and cannot wait to book again. It's the perfect family get away. We have two boys. We all really enjoyed the lake, the neighbors, the area and going into Truckee. There were games and puzzles to keep us off electronics when we weren't outside too! Len, the owner, is on top of things.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending 5 days at this wonderful Donner retreat. The condo is clean and very well maintained but the BEST feature is the LOCATION. Just walk outside and you have a nice quite beach area and plenty of dock space to throw in a fishing line.

It was quiet and relaxing and you can not beat the lake/mountain views. We would definately come back!

great location!

  • 5 of 5

Your townhome is one of the nicest places we've stayed in North Tahoe. Lots of open space for our family of 4, easy in and out, even with the big storm.

P.S. Games were good for our snowed in day!
