This rental is a vacationers dream. Located on the quiet and secluded side of Donner Lake (south side), this home offers large floor to ceiling windows in the main great room, two separate decks overlooking the lake and a large private pier for easy boating and swimming access.

Enter the property on the main great room level. An open floor plan with high vaulted ceilings offer spectacular views and is perfect for entertaining.

An open loft is available for the extra kids in your group-nicely appointed with (4) twin beds.

Journey downstairs to the bedroom floor. Two bedrooms are situated on the lake side, with large sliding glass doors leading to a covered deck overlooking the lake. This deck offers tall tables and chairs, perfect for playing games with the kids or simply enjoying the view out of the afternoon sun.

The first bedroom is the master suite, appointed with a king size bed and private bath with stand up shower. The second bedroom facing the lake is furnished with queen size comforts.

The third bedroom is located at the back of the house on the same floor and offers a double bed.

About Reservations

Tahoe Mountain Properties specializes in Luxury nightly rentals and ski leases in the north Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake and Truckee areas and surrounding ski resorts. We offer a proactive, efficient and friendly approach to property management. When you stay at a Tahoe Mountain Properties home, the property will be warmed up and welcoming upon your arrival-heated to 65 degrees with the porch light on for easy access. We offer extended office hours during peak seasons and an easy cell phone contact for after hours help. We look forward to hosting you in Tahoe!

Why Reservations chose Donner Lake

Located on the quiet side of the Lake, this home is a great location to get together for a "low key" vacation with family or friends. We especially like how this property has two decks with 180 degree views of the lake. The second floor deck is covered and offers high tables, perfect for getting out of the afternoon sun, but still enjoying the view-with a good book, a board game or a cocktail! The upper deck is directly off the great room and has plenty of seating and a large gas BBQ.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our large group. The cabin is very spacious, nicely furnished, and has everything you need. Gorgeous views from the main room and both decks. Beds were very comfy, and the loft provided a lot of extra sleeping space which was nice. Loved all the small details in the cabin. Our group is already discussing how much we'd love to come back and stay during the summer! Thanks again!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This location was awesome! The home was very specious and included everything we needed… Plenty of room to spread out if we wanted to. Views were so beautiful…this place is literally steps away from the lakefront. Totally recommend staying here! Holly is very easy to interact with, and quick to answer questions/concerns.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My goodness what a great week and great place to reconnect. The place was impeccably clean and furnished. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials. My husband and I spent all nights hanging on the deck with our daughters and watching the stars. Magic! Thanks Holly!

Donner Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family has made a summer vacation home out of Donner Bliss for the last couple of years and absolutely plans to do it again. The home easily accommodates 10+, with plenty of room for multiple families and kids of all ages. The stairs will definitely keep you in shape, but the location and views are unbeatable!

Fair Oaks, CA


  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Donner Bliss for 5 days for my son's wedding in Tahoe Donner. We were very familiar with this area as my mother had a cabin a few down from this cabin for many years. Donner Lake is beautiful and much less crowded than the Tahoe area. There were four couples and two adult children staying at the cabin, and it was comfortable for everyone. The cabin looked newly remodeled and beautiful! The beds comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, a pantry, laundry area - all very well appointed. Being right on the lake, much time was spent out on the deck and down on the dock! It was a perfect home base for us! They had a kayak down by the dock which we took out one calm morning. Donner is notoriously windy, especially in the afternoon - so if you want to get out on the lake do it in the morning! I highly recommend this property!
