About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 11

One peek at the view from the rustic-chic Lake Escape vacation home, and you'll want to collect your friends and family and book this getaway!

Featuring a spacious patio with a stunning view of Donner Lake, this home away from home also has access to waterfront docks and is a short drive from the Pacific Crest Trail, historic Truckee, and a number of Tahoe ski resorts. Nearby Trout Creek Recreation Center and Northwoods Clubhouse offer activities for the whole family like sport courts and hot tubs for a daily fee.

Lit up by natural light pouring in from the sliding glass door and bounty of windows, the living room is exactly where all 11 guests will enjoy socializing after a day outdoors. With a flatscreen TV and WiFi, everyone can also relax with movie or streaming music.

The open floor plan on the main level includes the fully-stocked kitchen so that you can prepare a cheers-worthy meal for the entire crew. There's also a basin for chilling California wines you can pick up while out.

Each of your guests will sleep soundly among the four bedrooms. The master bedroom, which also includes a TV, has an inviting king-size sleigh bed. In a second rooms sits a queen sleigh bed and a third room includes both a twin and a double bed. Downstairs, you'll find a bedroom with a bunk bed and a family room, with a futon and third TV.

The master bathroom includes a luxurious double sink. There's also a second bathroom near the living room and a third downstairs, making it easy to find a spot to get ready in the morning anywhere in the house. Need a washer and dryer? Lake Escape has a set!

The remarkable patio is perfect for any time of year. Invite everyone out for a summer barbecue on the gas grill or warm your hands in winter next to the portable outdoor fireplace. This is all before an unbeatable view of Lake Donner, of course!

Outdoor enthusiasts will feel right at home here. Under a mile away, water lovers can walk to the lake's North Shore and find public docks to admire the scenery from. You can also rent boats and jet skis at the Donner Lake Marina, a four-minute drive away.

For hikers, take a 10-minute car ride and arrive at access points to the popular Pacific Crest Trail. Snow enthusiasts will be glad to know that both Northstar California Resort and Sugar Bowl Resort are each approximately 15 minutes away. And for a bit of history, Truckee is easy to get to via a 10-minute drive on Interstate 80.

Gather up the gang for an unforgettable experience at Lake Escape today!

Note: the use of Tahoe Donner HOA facilities requires additional daily fees.

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.



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.



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!

We are excited to come to this cabin pictures looked good &quot; professional so made it look nicer then actual &quot; we were 2 families 5 kids , the road leading to the cabin was like going pass junk yards with old cars, roads not finsihed, junk laying around. We got to the property and the drive way you can literally fall if not careful . not clean in front of house overall just needs to be redone the front of the house looks like it should be the back of the house, terrible architect. <br />

everything needs an update its like being in the 90's ...<br />

(good size family room) <br />

water heater after one person took a shower , water was freezing cold<br />

at night you can hear the noises loud noises like wood cracking scared the kids and some adults. we stayed one night and took off and didnt stay the other night. <br />

anyway price was ok but not worth what i paid at all.. good luck..and everyone <br />

has different taste so you may like it or not.

Great house, short on amenities

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property. The deck is idyllic, the common area upstairs perfect for just hanging out. The bedroom setup is nice as the upstairs and downstairs rooms are quite separate; it allowed our two families to have plenty of space. The location is great, quiet and convenient.

The supplies though seemed quite lacking. While the cupboards are packed full of things, it’s missing some useful pieces, like oil or cooking spray. A fancy coffee maker looks great on the counter-until you attempt to turn it on and find it doesn’t work. Lots of utensils but not high quality: I attempted to peel a cucumber and the peeler bent on the first try. Closets are cluttered with random items and each drawer seems to have some miscellaneous item in it. So while we love the house, I’d like to see some better care and intention put into it if we were to visit again.
