Most amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything that was promised on the site. It had an amazing view and the home itself was fantastic. So much room for everyone. It was well maintained and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, glasses, cutlery, etc. The rooms were very spacious. The town of Truckee has so many restaurants to chose from. And of course Donner Lake is right there. I would recommend this property, especially if one is looking for a relaxing place to stay with a spectacular view.

Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view of Lake Donner! Even though we had no snow we created our own memories. Fully supplied kitchen to include crockpot.(yes) and KCup for coffee. The hearth fireplace is stunning. We came from all corners of the country to be with our two children. And two grand children. We had ample room. The garage is huge. Bring your own food and your all set for weeks to come! The owner is a hands on owner, he reached out the first day making sure we were all tucked In! Clan Seymour

Beautiful home with incredible lake and mountain views

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as described. Location was just what we wanted and expected. The owner Rick went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We mentioned we liked Nexflix and he made sure we had access on at least one TV. We stayed for 7 nights between Christmas and New Year and Rick hung holiday lights for us across the balcony. We’d say he’s been our most gracious host in all our years renting thru VRBO. The only thing we missed this year was freshly fallen snow. You can’t go wrong renting this home.

Beautiful house - stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. My wife and I were joined by two daughters and their spouses and our 2 year old grand daughter. The three bedroom layout worked. Everyone slept in very comfortable beds. Furnishing in the living area was just right for playing with grand child and supported a glass of wine with a fire and adult conversation in the late evening.

Deck over looking the lake, functioning grill to cook dinner, workable kitchen for more than one cook at a time. After many years of travel to Reno/Tahoe, this was our best experience.

Great treatment from the owner and property manager added to the five star rating. We will be back! Thank you for everything.

Excellent Donner Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very nice with excellent lake views. Owner was super responsive and went above and beyond to make sure everything about the experience was as good as it could be. We had a family get together with two sets of grandparents and everyone enjoyed the property. The cable in the master bedroom didn't work, but we didn't mind - plenty of better things to do and the owner was working on having it fixed. One very nice feature that can be overlooked is the ample parking and easy garage access from the cabin to the street. This made accommodating several vehicles easy, which is not always the case with some properties in this area. Would recommend without hesitation.

Great view!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the lake & mountains, well equipped, nice garage space for bikes. Donner Pass Rd is a bit loud, but not sure that is a deal breaker!

Thanks for the stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the road can get a little busy during the day, but fortunately at night it does quiet down. We hope you will consider us again for your next getaway.
