A great place to stay. It had everything we needed. Clean and well maintained. Perfect location, close to Truckee, but far enough away to have peace and quiet. Can't wait to go again!

Three Generations Weekend Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this clean and well-equipped condo RIGHT on Donner Lake. Got three generations together for a fun and relaxing weekend! The private beach and dock area is so quiet. Enjoyed all the outdoor toys - canoe, kayak, peddle boat. Plus we even rented a ski boat for an afternoon. Ate all our dinner meals down by the fire pit area - so scenic! Our stay was definitely too short, so we'll be BACK. Thank you David and Sonya!

WHAT a view...This condo is sitting on the most beautiful view EVER!! Everything is just steps away. Canoeing, kayaking, swimming, boating, sea doo's...You can not beat it. Condo is cozy, clean and has everything you need....Including toys in the garage. Tahoe is just a short drive away BUT honestly I love DONNER so much more. Truckee is quaint and cute and there are great restaurants everywhere. Cant not say enough..BOOK IT you wont regret it!!

A Blissful Week on Donner Lake with all the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

This condominium is just a few steps to pure heaven on Donner Lake. Beautiful lake views, gorgeous mountain views - all the comforts of home. Very clean! Lovingly attended to. Just steps to a green lawn, a sandy beach, comfy lounge chairs and umbrellas and a dock for fishing! We enjoyed kayaking, renting a speed boat to take the teens tubing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking and sunning. So great to be 5 minutes from downtown Truckee for dinner out and shopping. The best family vacation ever. We plan to come back every year.

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this condo. The lake view and lazy lifestyle was just what we needed. Woke up every morning to an amazing view. The weather was perfect. Downtown Truckee was full of cute shops and great food/drinks. Took in the Shakespeare Festival in Tahoe. Went white water rafting on the Truckee river. It was a summer get away for my husband and our two adult daughters. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect way to end the summer and send them off to college/medical school. I'm already looking at re-booking for next year.
