Our 4- Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home Is Warm And Inviting.
South facing and beautifully appointed, this home sleeps 9. In addition, a bright loft accommodates several kids in sleeping bags. In the great room is a gorgeous gas fireplace, large dining table, media nook, game table, and a fully appointed kitchen. We have an expansive deck with large wall of granite for privacy, a fully-appointed kitchen, a loft for lounging or sleeping. No smoking. No pets. Children are welcome!
The expansive deck tucked into a immense spine of granite. Guests enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner outside next to the perennial garden and potted flowers in the abundant sunshine. The living room has a wall of windows facing Donner Peak which allows sunlight into the main floor of the house. The game table, media nook, and the fireplace gathering area encourage large families or groups to find their own restful spaces. Each bedroom is thoughtfully decorated and each bed has top quality linens. The quiet street invites morning and evening strolls through the charming west end neighborhoods. The West End Beach is an easy 5-minute walk from the house. Guests can access the abundant hiking trails by driving 5 minutes up the Old 40 Highway or find their way into the old town of Truckee within just a few minutes' drive or a fun bike ride along Donner Lake!

About Mary Ann Hamilton
We have been longtime lovers of Donner Lake. We live full time in Auburn, California, where we raised both of our children. We are a family of skiers and hikers and Donner Lake was a natural addition to our lives. Alongside our grown children and young grandchildren, Donner Lake continues to be a fun and unforgettable playground! When we have the chance we travel with friends or our extended family and we are always grateful to come home to the mountains.
Mary Ann Hamilton purchased this House in 1987
Why Mary Ann Hamilton chose Donner Lake Woods
Since our children were young, we have loved escaping to the west end of Donner Lake to fish, ski, hike, read, eat with family, enjoy the garden and the quiet neighborhoods of the west end.
What makes this House unique
Our proximity to beautiful places makes renting and living here ideal: we are a 5-minute walk from Donner Lake's West End beach; 5 minutes' drive from skiing at Sugar Bowl and 20 minutes from Squaw and Northstar. We have beautiful hiking trails 5 minutes from our door. When inside our home, the views of sky, trees, our garden (or in the winter, the mountains of snow), the warmth of our fireplace, the open, airy feeling in the living room all make being inside almost as wonderful as being outside.

Beautiful cabin, very well stocked, perfect location
Thank you Rebecca...I knew that you were looking forward
to a special time with your family. We are happy that you were
comfortable and happy in our home..most of our guests do
enjoy visiting Truckee and the ski resorts and, of course , the Donner Lake beach in the Summer.....you are right the location is perfect. Please visit us again. Mary Ann
Another Wonderful Thanksgiving!
We love Mary Ann's house and look forward to staying again in the future. The kitchen is not large but opens to the rest of the common space, so cooks can socialize while spending the better part of the day in the kitchen. The kitchen also has everything one could need to host a Thanksgiving dinner.
We spend every other Thanksgiving with friends and this house accommodates a group perfectly. There are three levels (including loft space), providing plenty of privacy and quiet. My daughter and niece could feel independent and still be within earshot in their loft fort. All around a great place to stay!
Thank you, Emily...we have also enjoyed so many family celebrations at the cabin, in fact, tomorrow we will have an 18th
Birthday party for our granddaughter.
Come back soon.
beautiful home nestled in the mountain rock
This is our 15th visit to Truckee/Squaw and our first visit at Mary Ann Hamilton's home. It is the best! It is so beautiful. The home is nestled in the mountain rock, a perfect mountain setting. Our families favorite space is the enormous deck. We spent much of our time on the deck eating meals, lounging, reading, and hanging out. It is wonderful for children , a great play area. The home is very family friendly, with lots of living space ,many bedrooms, a kitchen that is well equipped with all the necessary items and then some. We prepared most all of our meals with ease. the location is wonderful, just a few blocks to Donner Lake and the beach/playground/picnic area. WE wished we had discovered Mary Ann's home years ago. We are looking forward to our stay next year.
Thank you, Joyce... it was our
pleasure to share our home with
your family. Mary Ann
Beautiful, spacious Donner Lake home in a great location
This is my second time staying at this beautiful and quiet Donner Lake property, located just minutes from the West End beach. The home features four bedrooms with comfortable beds, a wonderful living room, a fully stocked kitchen, and a huge deck with plenty of seating. You won't want to come inside! The owner, Mary Ann, is a pleasure to work with and very responsive if you have any questions. We will be back!
Thank you,Lisa ,for loving our Donner home as much as we have for so many years.
