Walk to Donner Lake with your dog, ski all day, and grill on the deck!

Looking for a dog-friendly lakeside vacation home? This Donner Lake lodge is just the ticket, and also offers a cozy pellet stove, space for 10, and gorgeous wooded mountain views.

Just a half mile down the road is West End Beach of Donner Lake. There, you can rent watercraft to experience Donner Lake up close. Sugar Bowl Village is five miles away for skiing. To stock up on provisions, visit the supermarket just five miles east along the way to Truckee, where you can have a dinner out, shop for souvenirs, and learn about the rich history of Tahoe.

More than just a Tahoe getaway, this home provides extra amenities for your stay. Borrow the two adult bikes or the one child BMX bike for exploration on Sierra trails. There are a few exercise machines in the home so you can workout in privacy. The high wood-beam vaulted ceilings lend a true mountain lodge feel.

In warmer months, the weather calls for a cookout, and you'll have a gas grill outside on the wrap-around deck. Head in through the sliding glass doors to the main living room and kitchen space.

In winter, snuggle up on the cushioned benches surrounded the pellet stove. Choose a movie from the home's library to watch on the large flat screen with DVD and Blu-ray. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove and the tools you need to fix a meal on the grill or indoors. Plenty of seating is available for all guests to imbibe and dine casually.

This floor also has the master suite, complete with a king-size bed and a TV. An attached full bathroom gives you extra privacy with a half bath by the laundry. Upstairs are the remaining two bedrooms, each with a double-size bunk bet set and another full bathroom on this second level. A sofa bed and futon add to the bed count, allowing for 10 to sleep comfortably at this Donner Lake getaway.

On the other side of the upper floor is a second living room with a TV and deck access. Pretend like you're out at the pub with the wet bar, featuring an impressive natural wood surface. There are child-friendly toys and games, as well as board games for the whole family. Plus, a second full bathroom for your convenience.

Additionally, this Truckee vacation home has WiFi, a half bathroom, and private laundry so you can stay on top of the wash while you're relaxing on the deck or socializing around the bar. Your dog is invited to stay, too.

Along with trout fishing, stand-up paddle boarding, and jet skiing on Donner Lake, this area is prime for snow sports. In addition to Sugar Bowl, this home is close to both Boreal and Soda Springs (six to nine miles away).

For a full day of luxury resort going, take the 17 miles drive south to Squaw Valley where you can snowshoe, go for a dogsled ride, and ski Olympic-famous slopes. See Lake Tahoe itself with a visit to Kings Beach, only 20 miles away.

With its many amenities and dog-friendly attitude, this Donner Lake vacation rental is ideal for your next big family getaway. Make sure to visit soon!

Big living room and deck. Both comfortable spaces. Great master bedroom and bath. Great family house. Walking distance to the beach. About a 10 minute walk.
Clifton C. Jul 2019
We had a great time going on walks or riding the bikes. It is a nice home for a group with a big living room.

Great family time
Everything you need is there
Daniel N. Apr 2019
We're a family of 5 with a dog and all of us enjoyed the house. Super convenient for skiing Sugarbowl, being only 10 minutes away. All especially like the entertainment room and all the puzzles.

My yearly snow trip with friends was a success. We had lots of fun in this cozy cabin. The cabin was exactly as pictured and it is spacious enough for 14 (15 if it is a child). The only downside we had is that the Wi-Fi didn't work the entire time we were there, but then again, being near Donner Lake (walking distance) and near the slopes for snowboarding, it is not needed.
Will most likely come back with my family.

Spacious yet cozy feeling.

Perfect layout & beautiful!
Jo C. Aug 2018
Plenty of room to relax and spend time with family. Kitchen was well supplied with all cooking implements. Close to west end beach.
Mark A. Aug 2018
House was great, the house was clean, smelled great. Had pretty much everything we needed and more. Loved idea of them having bicycles available and fishing roods. Close to lake entrances. Will be staying there next year.

Great place for the family, lots of stairs so if you have little ones bring gates!
Elizabeth C. May 2018
We had a great time in this house and it has such a large family room that's perfect for large groups. The only suggestion I would make is more towels in the house. It holds up to 14 people and I think we only found 10 towels total. But it had tons of spices and every thing you need in the kitchen. Close walk to the water and beautiful scenery.
Jennifer F. Apr 2018
Loved this place! We enjoyed our trip, and would come to this location again. The only negative thing we had to deal with was very spotty internet. The TV runs off internet so at times it wouldnt work, but other than that it was great!

Lea W. Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our weekend on donner lake. The rental was comfortable for 3 families to both interact and have space apart. We enjoyed meals on the deck, the spacious living spaces, and the well stocked kitchen. The home is very close to the west end beaches which we enjoyed immensely. It's nice to find a kid and dog friendly place on our favorite lake!
Opal (Kris) R. Jul 2017
This house was a perfect space for our family of 14! The kitchen and dining area was very comfortable and easy access for coming and going. The two upstairs spaces were perfect. Living room, deck area was spacious and comfortable. The master downstairs was great for grandma and grandpa. Upstairs bedrooms comfortable and loft/bar area was a great space for kids to play. Pull out couch mattress need to be replaced, if Ithat is taken care of I give this home 10/10!
Aldo S. Jul 2017
Easy access great location. We had a blast. The kids thought we were in a "mansion" and there was lots of room to hang out. The patio was a great place to hang out on as well.
Cynthia W. Jun 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves. It was comfortable and well maintained.
Dan C. Jun 2017
The cabin is large and open with impressive vaulted ceiling. It has all the conveniences needed for 6 to 8 people. We would consider staying again in the future.
Robyn R. Jun 2017
We enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room for the family. Nice neighborhood. Close walk to Donner lake and close drive to downtown Truckee. Great price for the amount of space!
Adan S. Jun 2017
This place was great my family and I really enjoyed our time here. Very spacious comfortable home, walking distance from the lake everyone was friendly. Big thanks to the VACASA team they where very helpful and accommodating to ensure our stay would be great. Can't wait to return next summer or even sooner!!
Brian B. Apr 2017
This is a very nice home to rent. It was perfect for our large group of people. It is close to everything we wanted and we will definitely stay here again!
Sue P. Mar 2017
After a rocky start where house was not cleaned/ready until 8:30 pm, which Vacasa notified us slightly ahead of our 4:00 pm check in time and refunded our cleaning/booking fee, we had a great stay. House is a bit dated but super comfortable and giant living room was an awesome place to relax with games, TV and fireplace. Kitchen was well stocked with everything equipment/dish/utensil-wise to cook meals. Lots of entertainment inside house in the form of books, games, cards, movies, music, etc. We would definitely stay here again!
Thomas B. Mar 2017
This place is a block off of the water's edge -- very close to the lake. The layout is very open and comfortable. Most everything was in working order with the exception of the futon in the upper living room area (Vacasa is working to fix that now). There isn't much yard space for snow play, but our kids are young so they were perfectly happy to play in the driveway. We likely will be back at some point.
May G. Jan 2017
This place is really nice. Has a very spacious living room, dining and bedrooms. We love the whole place and the fact that most of what you might need (kitchen, bedding and shower) are all there.
This will be our go-to place every time we wanted to go Truckee area.
Tyler R. Jan 2017
Very nice cabin. Spacious and conveniently located. Would definitely stay here again.
