About the property

5 bedroom / 3.5 baths Mountain Views, close to Ski Resorts and Private Beach

This is a Large “Swiss Style” Chalet that sits at the West End of Donner Lake in the popular Donner Woods. Located off a quiet, low traffic street, on a beautiful lot that backs up to a forested greenbelt with a seasonal creek and waterfall in the spring. You’ll enjoy great views of Donner Summit and Schallenberger Ridge, or a very short walk, 0.3 mile, will take you to the beach. The Chalet is 2800 square feet with two levels featuring central heat, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a bonus family room.

The main upper level has a large fully equipped kitchen with granite counters; a spacious Great Room with vaulted pine ceilings and gas wood stove; beautiful mountain decor and a large covered wrap around balcony that is awesome in both summer and winter, rain or snow. The upper level has a large master suite and bath, two guest bedrooms and a second full bathroom.

The lower level features a bonus family room, two more bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bath combo. A hideabed couch and futon are available in the bonus family room. This set-up is perfect for a little bit of separation of living space and privacy. Enjoy the great outdoors from the upper deck or hike right out the back door through the woods and up Shallenberger Ridge. A great open and relaxed feeling, while offering plenty of space and quiet privacy for everyone!

The Truckee and Donner lake area is great for fishing, boating, mountain biking, golf, skiing and everything else Truckee area has to offer. Boats, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and bikes are all available to rent from nearby venders, For snow skiers, Sugar Bowl is only 10 minutes away and Royal Gorge is only 15 minutes away for cross country skiing. Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar can be reached in 20-25 minutes for year round activities and entertainment. Tahoe and Reno are both within an EZ 35-40 minute drive. Shopping and great restaurants are available in historic downtown Truckee, just 10-15 minutes away. Donner Lake is a year round paradise!

Beautiful well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay at David's Donner Cabin and had plenty of room to spread out. Downstairs there is a bunk room and another room with a queen and a large living room/bonus room. The kids could play down there and the adults were upstairs on the main level (3 more bedrooms) large living room and kitchen. Perfect for the 9 of us to enjoy each others company but still not be under foot. Also very well stocked home (paper goods, hand soap, towels, spices, stocked kitchen...) which made for a comfortable stay. Thank you for sharing your home.

Perfect family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation for us! 10 adults and 4 little ones. Couples each had a private room and all amenities were amazing! We enjoyed the well prepared kitchen, the hot tub, Smores around the outdoor campfire, games around the large family table, and the beautiful, expansive deck! The home owner's beach is conveniently located, easy to access and fun for the whole family. David was a terrific host and provided for all of our needs. He responded to questions promptly and was very helpful. The home was very clean, very safe and oh so comfortable. Additionally, the mountain decor just added to the cabin fever! We loved it all! This was the first time our family was all together in over 2 years. Thanks, Dave, for making our dream come true!

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at this house in Donner and the visit was as good if not better than the 1st time. The house is beautiful, clean and well stocked. The back yard is fantastic for kids. Thanks for all the snow and a wonderful Easter weekend!

Nice Home Near Donner Lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very private, well-equipped, and very comfortable. The cabin was quite large and had plenty of room and privacy for everyone in our group. The upstairs living room/dining room/kitchen was huge and a nice place for everyone to congregate and socialize. The house was nicely decorated and had the feeling of Tahoe museum, with posters, and artifacts that gave you a sense of the history of snow sports in the Tahoe area. The deck area had a very nice grill, and the hot tub was underneath a pergola which protected you from falling snow. The rooms ran hot even with adjustments to the thermostat, but all in all it is a great house near Donner Lake.
