Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

With space for up to 14 guests, this wonderful six-bedroom Donner Lake getaway offers a gorgeous lake view, plenty of room to roam, and a picture-perfect location right across the street from Donner Lake West End Beach State Park! When you stay here, you will enjoy amenities like a large outdoor deck surrounded by trees, a cozy gas fireplace inside, a full kitchen, and entertainment amenities like WiFi, cable TV, a VCR, and a DVD player.

During your stay, spend a sunny day at the 10-acre West End Beach State Park for paddle-boarding, swimming, tennis, volleyball, or even a picnic by the lake (for access to this state beach, please be aware that there is a nominal, daily fee). On the Fourth of July, this is the best spot in Truckee to catch the fireworks! But like all of Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake is not just a summer destination - during the winter months, you'll be within 15 minutes of Northstar, Sugar Bowl, and Boreal Mountain ski resorts.

When you're not out swimming or skiing, this Donner Lake House offers a comfortable, laid-back setting for family vacations, reunions, or getaways with friends. Spend evenings outside flipping burgers on the deck or inside snuggled around the fireplace. The interior is reminiscent of a cabin in the mountains and offers a warm, inviting space, complete with the main living area on the upper floor.

After a home-cooked meal (the large full kitchen is with everything you'll need - even a dishwasher), settle back in the living room for a movie. And when it's time for everyone to head off to bed, there's room for 14 guests to stay in this home's six bedrooms. Specific beds include one king bed, three queen beds, six twins, and a futon.

Other amenities include multiple full bathrooms (three), a washer and dryer, and a stereo. This Truckee vacation home is perfect for summer lake trips, family ski vacations, or any retreat where you need a comfortable spot for a large group. From here, Lake Tahoe's North Shore is only 30 minutes away. There are so many activities right near by, you may have trouble deciding how to spend your vacation days!

Visit gorgeous Donner Lake for some fun in California's Sierra-Nevada Mountains! A stay at this Tahoe Donner getaway offers great amenities, an amazing, scenic location, and all of the comforts of home.

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great location, roomy house for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

My rating would really be 3.5 stars. This house is in a wonderful location across from Donner Lake and close to skiing. It comfortably holds a houseful and is in that way ideal for a large gathering of family or friends. The great/living room is comfy and perfect for hanging out. Kitchen is giant and has tons of cooking supplies, but it could be have been neater and dishes/pots show their age. Mattresses were pretty soft.

Great Stay for Work Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This cabin has served us well for many years. The open floor plan is what really makes it work for our work retreat. We also really enjoy the location near Donner Lake. The cabin tends to have ample parking, even during the winter. Thank you for the new couch and new upstairs doors! The heated floors are a feature that probably doesn't get enough praise so I'll mention that too. While the kitchen is large and has a wide variety of cooking equipment, it might not meet the standards if you are used to higher quality amenities. Overall, this cabin is a great value.

Nice large home to enjoy with family

  • 4 of 5

The Donner house was a perfect size for my family. The huge kitchen made cooking Thanksgiving dinner so easy. Plenty of pots and pans.<br />

The new sofas are cozy and nice to sit in front of the fire. The deck was enjoyed even though we were wrapped in blankets. The kitchen cabinets could use a good cleaning and a set of new dishes, nothing fancy would be a good investment. My family enjoyed our time there and appreciated the quick response from the office during my stay.

Fabulous home for my lege family. We loved the open area where all the action happened.

  • 4 of 5

The location to the lake was perfect. So many positives- plenty of parking, cleared out garage, living seating plenty, well equipped kitchen. Not so good- dirty kitchen cabinets years of grime, lack of lighting in living room, not enough kitchen towels for 4 day stay. A good cleaning would bring this to a 6 star for sure.
