-evening dinners lakeside while the kids continue to play or fish as the sun sets.

-to avoid the extra expenses such as the daily resort fees, tips, and countless meals, beverages and snacks out

-more space and privacy than a high-end multi-room resort suite at a significantly less expense

-a choice of all of the local outdoor activities and, in the winter, your choice of ski resorts, instead of being relegated to the one where your hotel is located.

-letting the kids eat dinner in- dressed in their PJs

-drinking your own wine and lounging around in comfortable clothes with family and friends

About Rhonda at Starting Gate

The owners love the Tahoe area and all of the fun, healthy family recreation it provides both in the summer and winter.

Rhonda at Starting Gate purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rhonda at Starting Gate chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This property was purchased and renovated to be state-of-art in energy efficiency, electronics and appliances with dual purpose in mind. We wanted to be able to enjoy Tahoe in hassle-free, luxury like we were staying in a penthouse, timeshare or suite at one of the top local resorts. For years, we stayed at the top hotels in the area and found that staying at a resort limited our options for places to ski, restaurants and activities. In the summertime, we found ourselves wishing for lake views and better access to all of the summertime lake activities. We searched to find just the right house or condo on and near both Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. A 45 minute shorter commute to the Bay Area, better access to our favorite ski resorts, warmer and more family-friendly waters made Donner Lake our first choice. After three plus years of searching, we found this property and this unit. We envisioned it being brought up to date while also highlighting its really great 1972 post-modern architectural structure. We believe we have done just that are are thrilled to share it with others.

What makes this condo unique

-Everything is new, clean and top of the line.

-Beautiful views

-15-20 minutes to ski resorts. Sugarbowl, 9 miles, Squaw Valley 17 miles, Northstar 16 miles.

-Private Beach with chairs, toys, boat dock, gazebo and charcoal BBQ amenities.

-Walk to lake and boat Launch

-Quick, easy access to Truckee restaurants, grocery stores and shops

Perfectly appointed and hosted.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our second trip to this wonderful home. It's always a treat to get away to a lovely venue with a private beach. We stayed in several HomeAway rentals and this is our favorite by far. We can't say enough nice things about it. Just go there and enjoy!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is modern, well-equipped, and comfortable. We were there from Friday through Thursday and found the weekdays to be especially relaxing with less traffic on the roads and the lake, but it never felt crowded. The children loved the loft for sleeping and the adults were very comfortable downstairs. The weather was predicted to be storming but we only had warm comfortable days and plenty of sunshine. Thank you!

Best Tahoe stay

  • 5 of 5

After having stayed in various short-term rental places over the years, I have to say this is the best-kept home we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. We'd always stayed in houses, but was pleasantly surprised with how spacious the condo was. The home is thoroughly clean and inviting. Cozy sheets, lots of fresh towels, and warm fireplace heater. Kids loved the loft, where there were toys and 3 beds just for them. The kitchen was beautiful, with new appliances. The location was really ideal: 10 minutes from snow sports and Truckee, with its restaurants and shops. It was really a delight!

Also, the instructions given by the owner were concise and clear. Really an A++ experience overall. Highly recommend!

A beautiful condo at Donner Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The condo has high end appliances and finishes! It was very comfortable, and the fire place was cozy. It had everything we needed for a great Thanksgiving. Our family loved it!

happy kids + pampered moms = huge win!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a perfect weekend at Donner Lake! The condo is a gorgeous renovation—high-quality materials and thoughtful touches throughout. We had two five-year-olds with us, and they loved having their own “clubhouse” in the loft, as well as playing their first ever game of CandyLand. The moms were more enamored with the decadent bathtubs and rain showerheads, as well as the well-appointed kitchen, cozy blankets, and lovely decor. The condo is right across from the lake, and we took advantage of the proximity to water sports, beach, and playgrounds. Truly a perfect home base for a Donner Lake vacation!

Donner Lake is known for its beautiful setting, lake recreation and central location between the Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Sugar Bowl ski resorts. It is about 5 miles to Truckee’s business and restaurants. Truckee is has a wide variety of upscale shops and many restaurants- from family friendly to the most up-to-date, upscale restaurants in the North Tahoe area. Although in the wintertime, skiing/boarding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and hiking are the most popular local activities, the outdoor activity options are unlimited. Hiking, rock climbing, snowmobiling, winter fishing, sleigh rides, dog sled rides, local sightseeing and touring are also popular.

In the summer, Donner Lake is a favorite destination for boating, water skiing, wave runner, fishing, swimming, and much more. Spend your day on the beach, on the water, on a bike ride around the lake or hike the lake and its nearby mountains. The nearby Truckee River provides some great fly-fishing opportunities. From Boats to bikes- Almost everything, for every type of activity can be rented from local businesses once you are here. Guides and lessons can also be sourced so you can finally take that fly-fishing or rock-climbing lesson you have always wanted.
