A sure bet for mountain fun, this 3BR/2BA (plus loft) home boasts an excellent location and magnificent water views.

Find local dining at the lake or in nearby downtown Truckee.

Outfitted with plush seating and a gas firepit, the wraparound deck is an inviting lounge area with lake and mountain views. Inside, soaring cathedral ceilings, an alluring fireplace, and heated floors create a luxurious alpine retreat.


Anchored by a gas fireplace with stone surround, the living area invites you to unwind after a fun-filled day. Find ample plush comfy seating around the smart TV.


Home chefs will appreciate the sleek granite countertops and quality stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Start your day with fresh coffee at the kitchen bar for two.

We were so fortunate to have found this home and stayed over the 4th of July Holiday. The cabin is beautiful and well maintained and ideal for our two families as it is spacious and open. The deck is fantastic and the view from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft and deck is breathtaking.

The location is ideal and we biked to West End Beach in under 20 minutes with 4 young kids. Having the store walking distance was perfect and the Donner Lake restaurant for breakfast and lunch cannot be beat!

We had an amazing stay and can't wait to come back. There is very minimal spices and condiments that are often found at rentals so do prepare and bring items like olive oil, salt & Pepper, sugar, etc.
