A lakefront cabin with a private dock on quiet Donner Lake! Come here to relax, fish, sunbathe , and swim in one of California's pristine Sierra lakes. Close to hiking, biking, and water while only a 15 minute drive to town makes this unforgettable!
Thank you for your interest in our Donner Lake home. This beautiful, comfortable Donner Lake lakefront 2 bedroom/1 bathroom is right on the water. This is the lake level quarters of a custom home. The living room and each bedroom as a view of the lake so you will wake up to a view of the lake and forested granite mountains. Walk down a flight of stairs and jump in the lake or cast out a line.
Access to our home is easy. There is enough room to park two vehicles in front of the house.
Walk down a pathway toward the lake to the entrance. There is a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a laundry room and a full bathroom. The rental is completely selfcontained. The kitchen has a stove/oven, a refrigerator, and a gas BBQ. The bath includes all the necessities. There is cable TV, a DVD player, a stereo and high-speed internet access.
Go down a flight of carpeted stairs to a carpeted (soft on your bare feet and great for laying out) private dock where you can moor a boat, a jetski, try your luck at fishing, swim, or simply relax.
Our home has 2 queen-sized beds and a sofa bed in the front room with linens and 6 towels included. It is perfect for a small family or a couple or two. The kitchen is supplied with pots, pans, and dishes.
Truckee’s restaurants and shops are 15 minutes from the house and there are many hiking and biking trails within walking distance. There is a public beach at the end of the lake.
Please note that we don't allow smoking or pets anywhere on the property.
There may or may not be a host living upstairs at the time of your stay. The host is quiet and we have never had any complaints. You may run into him on the dock or in the parking pad. He stays up there in the summer to relax and get away from the rush of the bay area. If you have any problems getting into the place just give the phone number a call or knock on the door and he will help you out.
Access is via a private sliding glass door. The code is given out when you reserve your stay.
Private dock, BBQ, parking, smart TV, and lake level suite! All kitchen appliances and linens supplied, all you have to bring are food and personal items.
No interaction with guests as entry is provided via remote access code. Some intermittent interaction on dock and parking pad if owners are present in the owner only suite. Owners present in private suite several weeks a year.
The lake, dock, and hiking trails in the state park a quarter mile away!
No public transit near house.
You will have the guest quarters to yourself. There is not any passage from the lower level to the upper level and the residents in the upper level are quiet and will let you have your peace and quiet. We have our own access path to the dock so we do not walk onto the deck grill or past your door.
You may run into us on the dock, relaxing, fishing, or laying out but we respect your use of the place as well and will not bother you.
You are welcome to adjust the thermostat to your liking and to tie up a boat to the dock. The best way to tie up a boat to the dock if the slip is occupied is along the left edge with the bow facing the lake. Boats docked the other direction have had waves wash over the stern.
If the rocking chair is on the dock you are welcome to use it! There are also pop up cleats to prevent stubbed toes and allow for boats to be tied up to the dock.
We figured it was a long shot, but we decided to inquire about renting the property for a last minute getaway the evening before we travelled. Evan was amazingly accommodating, responding to my inquiry within minutes. He was even kind enough to let us check in a few hours early so my son would have a place to nap that afternoon. The cabin was clean and comfortable, but the amazing location was the main reason we selected this property. We had views of the lake from every room and our own private dock for fishing and boating. We couldn't have asked for a better place to get away and unwind. I'd highly recommend this place, and especially this host, to other travelers.
This was our second May stay at this lovely and comfortable home. We spent at least half of every day sitting and laying on the dock. Also, the lake was lower this year so we were able to wade in a bit from the edge of the property. My son and I love this place and will return every year, as long as Evan will have us. Thanks!!
We loved the location. Donner Lake was beautiful. However, the whole apartment smelled of mold. It was truly awful. Even the water out of the tap didn't smell right. They're aware of this issue as there were two DampRid containers in the apt. The cleaning charge was $125 so we expected more. Two stars for the view.
The cabin was great! Such a relaxing spot on the lake, away from the busier parts. The jetty/pontoon is fantastic to just hang out on + swimming etc. The actual accommodation itself is exactly as described. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well equipment and shower pressure is excellent. Arriving in the middle of the night, we found it a little hard to locate the actual house with the involvement of the little side street. Maybe just get Mark or Evan to explain this to you if you are coming at night. All in all a great place and would definitely go back!
A proposito dell'host, Evan
I am an aerospace engineer living in Seattle and I manage my dad's rental property in Donner Lake, California near Lake Tahoe.
We are friendly, quiet residents who enjoy boating and fishing from the dock but don't have the opportunity to visit as much as we used to. Our family has spent time in the area and at this location for the past 30 years and know the area very well and love to offer suggestions about places to go and things to do. There are plenty of hikes and bike trails within walking distance of the house and many other activities within a short drive, we love to give suggestions!
We do have our own private quarters in the house (the upper unit) with a separate entrance and separate path to the dock. We understand it is your vacation and are quiet but available if you need any help and we are there.
