Cabin, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)
The cabin sits where Lakeview Creek enters 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. 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! Soooo close to Sugar Bowl :)

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.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Owner chose Truckee
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Cozy Cabin in Donner
The cabin is very cozy and functional. Directions were easy to follow. Amenities worked as stated. Would stay there again
We really enjoyed the cabin and will probably rent it again next ski season. It is in a great location and was really quiet. We spent a while outside in the snow and didn't notice any freeway noise. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was a bit outdated but totally functional. The one minor problem was the lights weren't sent up very well and some were out of service so it made reading books a bit challenging but the owner, who was very responsive, was going to fix them.
Great place for a quiet weekend.
The cabin is very cozy. We kept the pellet stove going all weekend while watching the Olympics. My wife said it was perfect for her birthday get away. Our black lab loved dozing in front of the stove. Great little retro kitchen. Master bed was one of the most comfortable ever. We look forward to staying there again soon.
Thanks for the nice review, and we look forward to hosting you in the future.
Nice little cosy house.
The house has everything that is needed for the vacation. It would be great to add a teakettle. Hot tea is really good after playing on the snow.
It is located in very quite place of mountains north side on south shoreline Donner lake. As result the snow tends to stay longer there. There is a stream that creates additional charm when you stay on upper deck.
Our family really enjoyed by time we spent in the cabin.
Cozy cabin, Great location
Great for family getaway. 10 min to Sugar Bowl. Clean and quiet. Owner was very responsive.
Thanks again for choosing our cabin for your stay at Donner Lake.
My family had a great time. We really enjoyed the cabin and the location. Being next to the stream was very relaxing.
