About the property

2 Br, 1.5 Ba Newly Remodeled Lakefront Townhouse On Donner Lake, Sleeps 6.

**Available for Nightly and Weekly Rentals**

This stunning and stylish lakefront two bedroom two story townhouse has been completely refinished and features a private beach and private boat dock on the desirable West End of Donner Lake. This is one of the only lakefront locations that offers a full unobstructed view of the entire length of Donner Lake! The townhouse was fully remodeled in 2015 with a brand new kitchen, top-of-the-line GE stainless appliances, all new furnishings, and a full size laundry room with side-by-side washer and dryer.

Starting at the entryway, every inch of space has been put to use. As you walk in, there's a stone floor, bench and coat rack. A half bathroom leads to a full laundry room with extra storage space. Your eyes will be drawn across the space to the double sliding glass windows that open directly to beautiful Donner Lake. Just past the mudroom space, you're in the beautifully updated kitchen. Top line appliances compliment the dark wood cabinetry, granite countertops, and modern, pendant lighting. An island gives the cook a little extra room, with space for family to sit and chat. Sharing the open space, the large dining room table has room for all, and a skylight adds natural lighting. The living area, open to both the kitchen and dining area, completes the floor. A flat screen TV/blue Ray DVD and a wood burning stove framed in river rock round out the great room space.

Off the living space a covered deck with adirondack chairs are waiting for you overlooking your private beach and the crystal clear water of Donner Lake. On the deck you have the entire length of the lake in view - simply breathtaking! The deck and private beach also offer an incredible front row seat to the Donner Lake 4th of July fireworks!

Upstairs, you'll see additional entertainment options; including a loft space with flat screen TV/DVD and an entire wall filled with books, DVDs, and games. A trundle bed converts to two twin beds for extra sleeping space. The first bedroom upstairs features a king bed and access to a balcony. The rustic wood furniture reminds you you're living the mountain life!

Sharing the upstairs balcony, the second bedroom offers a queen bed with one twin bunk bed for siblings or best buddies to share. The large upstairs bathroom features a shared vanity area with a full shower space and toilet that can close off for privacy. On the other side of the sink area, there's an oversized soaking tub surrounded by tile with room for toys or a book and a glass of wine; which can also be closed off.

The townhouse comes with a dedicated boat slip, lounge chairs, shared barbecues, picnic table areas and an on-site marina. The on-site marina offers a full selection of rentals from kayaks and paddle boards to jet-skis, ski boats and pontoon boats. Everything you need is right here!

Donner Lake is a year-round playground! Boating, skiing, and fishing are of course the top draws, but spring flower watching and fall hiking/biking are not to be missed. In the winter, enjoy easy freeway access and a few minute drive to Boreal and Sugar Bowl Ski Resorts. Northstar and Squaw Valley are easy 20 minute drives. All you need is steps away!

Enjoy the best Donner Lake has to offer at this beautifully appointed and updated vacation rental! We look forward to welcoming you to Donner Vista!

Wonderful place to spend a summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed in many vacation rentals in the Truckee area. This has become our new favorite spot. The location and layout of this condo is perfect. There were six of us, which included a 5 year old and a 9 year old. The private beach and water area between the beach and boat dock was a perfect place for them to swim and play. The home was extremely comfortable and included everything we needed. The kids enjoyed the wide variety of movies and games provided in the loft area.The kitchen has top of the line appliances and is beautifully furnished throughout. I was concerned about having only one full bath and one partial. However, the layout of the upstairs bathroom made it work for all of us.The shared BBQ area was not a problem and a great way to meet people. We enjoyed some beautiful quiet mornings on the deck and lovely evenings looking at all the stars. If you want to rent jet skis or a boat, the rental place is just a short walk away. We also found some great hiking trails close to the condo. We have already recommended this home to our friends and it will be on the top of our list for a future summer vacation. I still miss the quiet mornings on the deck drinking my coffee while looking at the beautiful lake.

Cozy Place to stay with Family

  • 5 of 5

Nice Condo with a spectacular view of Donner Lake. The living area is very nice, Kitchen clean and well equipped. The 2 bedrooms upstairs were pretty big. Our kids enjoyed the bunk beds. Bathrooms were clean. Owner provided space heaters, there was no central heating control that we could see. Tons of books, games and movies for the entire family. Overall, a great stay.

From the soaking tub to the gournet kitchen to being right on the lake, this condo provided the perfect hide away for some long over due down time. Tit was hard to tear myself away from that view!

This property was the perfect location for our long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a spectacular location! The condo was newly renovated and offered everything you need for a comfortable stay. Waking up to that beautiful lake view every day along with easy access for our kayak and wake boards made this the perfect place for our family weekend. We'll be back!

Great location, updated beachy decor, boat slip, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

So nice to have everything go right on a vacation. We came for a wedding at Sugar Bowl and this location was perfect. Close access to I-80 and also the back road to the lodge. The condo was cute, clean, and modern, with a great view of the lake. We enjoyed swimming right off the beach and relaxing in the sand afterwords. Great for kids too with an upstairs tv/daybed area with books for kids and movies for everyone. Only thing I would mention is to bring a baby gate if you have little ones. The stairs could be treacherous. The kitchen was fully stocked except for a cutting board (which would have been nice) and there were ample towels of good quality. Iron was missing but when I spoke with Holly she offered to bring one over. The timing didn't work for us but I believe she will have one there before the next tenant arrives. I will mention that whenever we had questions she responded to texts within a few minutes. Overall I feel like this spot worked perfectly for us and next time we will bring our boat!

A lovely holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 4 winter vacation. The view was stunning; the interior decor was also fresh, new, cool, comfy. It had everything we needed to eat in or out, watch movies or chillax. We shared our time between the multiple North Tahoe ski resorts, and spent one day inside enjoying the wood-burning stove and awesome shelves of books and DVDs. The location on the lake is near enough to the amenities of Truckee while being away from it all. We thoroughly relaxed and would love to visit again.
