Property description

The cabin sits on Lakeview Creek and Donner Lake. Listen to the babbling creek and unwind on our deck as you look out over the lake. Or use our membership and make the short walk, or bike ride on our cruiser bikes, to the 'private' beach club. The deck area is the prime entertainment spot. From the deck you hear the rushing creek, and you get a nice view of the lake. It's a sunny little spot. Perfect for afternoon BBQ's and entertaining. Inside the pine log walls take you back in time, but there are modern finishes. The kitchen has all new stainless appliances. The living room has a 'smart' TV with internet capability. In fact the entire cabin has wifi, and two of the three bedrooms have TV's as well. For longer stays you will appreciate the laundry room. And there is plenty of parking 'off street'. It's a level driveway that is plowed all winter, and there's a covered walkway, so no snow shoveling to access the cabin! 5 miles to Sugar Bowl :)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We bought and restored this cabin in 2011-12. Our family of five love this place. We have a Collie and Aussie that love running around the property and going to the lake. We ski at Sugar Bowl, and boat and paddle board on the lake in the summer. We road and mtn bike as well. There are terrific mtn bike trails right down the street. And the hiking in the area is truly amazing.

Why the Owner Chose Southside Highlands (Truckee, CA, USA):
Buying a cabin close to skiing and the lake was a dream come true for us. The fact that the mtn bike riding is so superb right from the property was a huge surprise. And Donner Lake is just our style of relaxation. We like Tahoe, but Donner has a mellower vibe, less hectic, and more alpine.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is a cabin. Its fully renovated with modern conveniences, but the pine logs make it feel rustic and alpine. This is a great family spot. You can park the car and never use it again once you arrive. Everything is close by. Take the canoe for paddle, or if you brought your boat hit the lake. Morning pulls are the best, but evenings are awesome with the sun setting over Donner Peak. And the fishing around Lakeview Creek is the best on Donner Lake. Just don't tell anyone.
