Fishing House

  • 5 of 5

We catch fish every time we are here right off the pier. The cabin is clean with a well stocked kitchen, awesome fire place on a remote, keeps the house very warm in the winter. Our favorite rental at Donner Lake.

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us just stayed 3 nights and could not be happier. There were a couple small issues with Head bumps on the stairs leading down to the lower bedrooms but just be careful...The Beds were really comfortable, The BBQ was great..The Deck was super for an outdoor lunch and morning coffee...We caught about 20 Trout from the Dock...All on Nightcrawlers. Everything we needed was in the Kitchen, and it was super well stocked with Seasonings, and a few assorted items that came in handy. We all decided we are coming back next Year! Thanks Bob & Sue!

Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

A traditional, rustic lake cabin, yet with plenty of lovely amenities and updated bath/kitchen facilities. Just sitting on the dock (there are 2) and watching the lake is guaranteed to bliss you to another plane... the layout of the cabin, with sleeping facilities on three levels, and baths on two, provides lots of opportunity for privacy and individual space. And the dock for fishing is just wonderful , even if the fish did not cooperate for us this weekend (no one else caught anything, either) ! We had a wonderful time - thanks to our hosts for a great place to spend some vacation days!

Beautiful cabin and location!

  • 5 of 5

I have never given a review before, but this place deserves a good review. The location of this cabin couldn't be more perfect - walk out the back door and you are right on the private dock. Also, the views of the lake from the cabin and deck are amazing! The cabin itself is beautiful. Most of it looks newly renovated with beautiful woodwork. It looks much bigger and roomier in person than it does from the pictures. The pictures don't do it justice. My husband and I along with our 5 adult children fit with plenty of room. The kitchen was very well stocked with every appliance/utensil etc. that you need. The owners were very fast at replying to all questions, and answered their phone promptly when we had some questions while at the cabin. Thanks, Bob and Sue, for sharing your cabin. It was a very relaxing and peaceful time. We would definitely rent here again if given the opportunity.

We wanted some rest and relaxation and that's what we got! The cabin is well maintained and gorgeous. It felt like home. Very clean and since we got snow it was so warm! The fishing was excellent right off the pier. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your place.

Fishing paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your cabin. It had everything we needed to make a trip complete. Especially liked the use of the canoe. It was also a real extra knowing that there is fishing gear there to use, won't pack ours next time. The pier right out the back door was fantastic. We caught 22 rainbow trout over our three night stay. Thanks and looking forward to our next visit.
