About Karri and Family
We love rafting on the Truckee River, winter skiing at Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine, and Homewood, enjoying the private HOA beach, the Tahoe Donner club facilities, including fitness center, swimming pools, equestrian center, golf, restaurants, playground, downhill skiing, sledding, and the close proximity of this house to shops and restaurants in downtown Truckee.
Why Karri and Family chose Truckee
We like traveling with our dog, and appreciate that other families do too! This Donner Lake neighborhood is very dog friendly, and so is downtown Truckee. In winter, we ski at Squaw or Alpine and enjoy FAR LESS traffic going home than when we stayed in Tahoe City. It's also super easy to access Truckee off Highway 80 and easy drive back to San Francisco.
What makes this House unique
This cabin has a vacant lot to separate it from Donner Pass Road... so much quieter than being right on the road or Lake - Lake Views and easy access without all the road noise. We prefer a single story house - feels safer and more comfortable for both the grandchildren and the grandparents. The fully equipped kitchen and full-sized washer/dryer are a big plus for families traveling with kids.

Loved our winter holiday in this Donner Lake House!
We enjoyed our stay in this property. The location is great and very peaceful and quiet.
It was perfect for our winter holiday.
Outstanding vacation for 3 children, 3 adults, and a dog!
This is a comfortable, well-appointed home for a relaxed vacation. Nothing was missing! Plenty of space for our boat and trailer. The boat launch was minutes away. We could swim by walking 2 minutes down the street (though crossing the Donner Pass Road always requires caution). We were within walking distance to the Tahoe/Donner Marina facilities and the wonderful Donner State Park where our dog found great pleasure in watching the squirrels and sniffing out the other visitors. We loved hiking, swimming, paddle boarding, and canoeing. The neighbors and other dogs were friendly and helpful. The other Tahoe/Donner facilities were thoroughly enjoyable! The children spent one day in camp and one day exploring, practicing archery, and swimming. I loved the Zumba Aerobics in the big pool where we also enjoyed the hot tubs and lap swimming. There was no time to try the other wonderful fitness facilities, tennis, golf, etc.
In all, the week whizzed by and we, the grandparents, have arrived home exhausted, but happy. Looking forward to next year!
Beautiful lakeside retreat. Perfect for my family
The property is well kept and has all the comforts of home. Perfect location to access all my favorite ski resorts. Property comes with homeowner access to Donner Association. Dinner ski resort is perfect for kids learning to ski. The homeowners are accessible and called to make sure our arrival to the home was to my satisfaction. Love that!
Fantastic House Right on the Lake
Super clean and inviting house and very well equipped, it even had travel size toiletries in the bathroom! The location was close to everything, skiing, shopping, restaurants, night life and right on Donner lake! We took a morning walk to Donner park and enjoyed some of the trails where you can showshoe in the winter. We went to downtown Truckee one night for dinner and had a geat time walking in town. We had such a great time in the winter I cant wait to book it for the summer!
I highly reccomend this home.
Loved the house and location. Clean, nice, well equipped. Many extras including beach chairs retc.
Ideal vacation at Donner Lake - thank you! Family who owns the house was lovely, super sweet and easy to work with.
Really enjoyed our week here! We loved that it was so close to the lake and public docks.
Very clean property, the kitchen has everything you'd need and also has beach chairs, sand toys and a nice deck to enjoy the view of the lake.
