In the winter, head to Sugar Bowl, just five miles away, for powdery fun on the slopes. Or head to Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows, all within 14 miles.

This home's interior is warm and inviting with wood plank walls and ceilings that rise to a loft, giving the open concept living area a spacious feel. Plentiful windows brighten up the space, and the deck just off the living room provides the ideal spot for relaxing and taking in gorgeous views of the lake and mountains in the distance. You'll have free WiFi to stay in touch with friends and family, and the well-equipped kitchen offers lots of counter space so the cooks in your group can spread out and create tasty snacks and meals.

We absolutely love this cabin right across from Donner Lake! Cute cabin and great location with access to a public pier for fishing and floating right across the street!

The view from the cabin was amazing, location was great, near Truckee downtown and also close to some of the ski areas

Really cute cabin with a perfect view overlooking the lake. Had everything we needed for a great stay and the fishing was great!

The cabin was very cute and cozy and had most everything we needed that we didn't bring with us. There was a barbecue on the front deck with cozy chairs to sit in while we barbecued chicken in the evening. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. It was a very nice place to stay. The only thing I wasn't expecting is the very busy & noisy road that went between the cabin and the lake but overall it was a great stay!

Cozy place right across the street from the public piers, and in walking distance of the ice cream shop. Smelt clean, has anything you need, including beach towels. Beds had some hairs in them, but other than that seemed clean, just shook them out. Lamps are bit odd, but functional.Shower is very strong, you get a free back massage :0) This place is a combination of rustic old and modern. Very cabin like. Carpets are stained, but seemed clean.
Planning on staying here again.

Great view from porch. Kitchen fully stocked only thing is need to supply larger trash bin and outside trash can. Beds could use egg crates for comfort. Definitely enjoyed the week will be coming back!

Really cute little cabin across the street from Donner. Nice new linens and furnishings. We didn't catch housekeeping on their best day.

Had a very good stay at the Property. Very Picturesque location, just in front of the Donner lake. The house was pretty clean when we checked in. The only issue we had was the bathroom door lock in the 1st floor. The door lock was not working and it restricted the usage. Apart from that, the stay was pretty good.
Manager response:
Maintenance inspected the bathroom door lock and found it to be working. We have posted instructions near the door to assist our guests. We are glad to see the stay was enjoyable!
