About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-20)

A gorgeous lake front property and marina on the sunny side of Donner Lake, this property is the picture of serenity. The outdoor decks are perfect for sun bathing, reading your favorite book and watching grandkids play on the paddle boat or kayak, or take them for a sail in the Catamaran Hobiecat provided!! Included in the rental; Catamaran Hobiecat, two SUP (standup paddle boards), a motorboat, Kayak, canoe, and paddle boat. Ski boat rental available upon request. Further, there is a Hot Springs Grandee Spa to complete your family recreation and relaxation options.

The house is separated into three areas. A main area downstairs at lake level with 4 bedroom (1 king, 1 queen, 1 full+ 1 trundle(2 singles), 4 singles) and 3 bathrooms. In addition, there is a large kitchen to accommodate all your entertaining needs, as well as large BBQ on the deck for outdoor dining. Two upstairs one bedroom apartments provide comfortable sleeping for 7 and three additional bathrooms. All units are connected by interior doors that can be closed for privacy if desired. Both apartments have private decks overlooking the water, state park and mountains.

If soaking up the warm sun on one of the many decks and docks, or splashing in the brisk clear Donner water is your interest, this is the place for your Vacation.

Peaceful serenity meets summer activities as waterskiing, sailing, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, biking and much more are right outside your door. Tennis and golf and the night life of Truckee are minutes away or make the 30 minute trip to Reno for shows and gambling. It is rare to find a location with such natural ambiance and so much to do so close by.

Take advantage of one of the few weeks left in Summer and make this summer vacation a memory you will cherish for a lifetime.

Additional features include; reserved parking for seven vehicles, berthing room for a 26’ boat and mooring space for additional boats, large gas barbeque, wind blocked sun deck, laundry facilities, wetsuit and towel hanging space and a small beach area when the lake is lowered in late August, September and October.

Three generations of our family stayed here for a week. We all enjoyed it tremendously. The water toys entertained all of us. We loved the decks and being right on the water., and the night views from there were fabulous. The trains across the lake fascinated us. The upstairs apartments were very nice. The downstairs kitchen shows its age more but the master bedroom was perfect for the "old folks" who wanted to be on the ground floor; the other three downstairs bedroom were small and less desirable. The kitchens were well stocked, and there are lots of games, puzzles and movie-access. Truckee is only a few miles away and Reno less than an hour. Everything was very clean when we arrived and we were greeted by both an owner and the housekeeper, both of them very welcoming.

Best vacation rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My eight adult children agreed this was the best vacation rental of all previous summers. The house/location exceeded expectations! The sail boat, motor boat, kayak, canoe etc. were all used daily. The owner greeted us and was very cooperative. The main kitchen was well stocked with a myriad of cooking utensils, pots, pans, condiments etc., and the couples quartered in the other apartments were also well satisfied. The beds were comfortable, and the great room was a welcoming gathering place for everyone. Everything needed was supplied in abundance, including games, movies, books etc. The location is central and nearby state park, golf, parasailing, charter fishing, shopping were all great. We hope to include some grandchildren and great grandchildren next year.
