Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We had such a great time

at the beach, hiking and of course BBQ'ing on the Egg (we have one as

well). Everything far surpassed our hopes of our vacation. The kids loved

the deck!

Thanks again,

Fantastic Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a Christmas vacation with my family. My two young girls had the time of their lives at Donner and this home was a big reason why.

Luxury on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to get away for three nights since we came over from Hawaii. In those few days, we experienced three seasons...snow flurries, fall like weather the next day and then warmth followed into the high 60's or low 70's. We arrived and were absolutely awestruck at the luxury and beautiful craftsmanship of this home. I have loved Donner Lake and have stayed there for many years, but this is truly a treat and so close to the water, hiking trails and Truckee. Our family got up every morning to watch the sunrise and the fog settle over the lake...just spectacular! The kitchen is wonderful and the home is so much larger than it appears in the photos. Photos just cannot capture the space...seating around a fireplace and another seating space with a TV. The decks are lovely and we cannot wait to come back some time in the summer! There were so many spaces (another loft living room space next to the Master Bedroom) that we could not utilize all that there was to offer.

It was easy to communicate with David and we are very grateful that he and his family offered to share this special place with us!

Beautiful house by the lake

  • 5 of 5

My circle of friends stayed at this Donner Lake house for our annual weekend getaway. It's a beautiful, well maintained house, conveniently located with a great view. It was the perfect place to just spread out and relax in while we were at the lake. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for our wedding weekend. It was a great place for us to stay and house some of our closest friends and family. The house was spacious yet cozy. And the views were amazing! There is a beautiful deck looking out over Donner Lake which is just across the street. The owner was very easy to work with and prompt at answering all of our questions. We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a mountain getaway that is close to downtown Truckee and provides a calm and relaxing setting.
