    What a wonderful property and the owner really takes pride in his property. Plenty of room for my family members and such a gorgeous view to wake up to each morning with a cup of coffee in hand. Highly recommend!

  • Spacious house at the lake


    We loved staying here! Pet friendly (we brought our cat). Big patio, lots of sleeping space, well stocked kitchen. The owner called before our stay to make sure we had directions and was overall very friendly. Walking distance to a cute ice-cream shop was a bonus!

  • Donner Lake Family House


    Fantastic lake view and convenient location as well as multiple gathering areas made this house the right place for a multi-generation family visit. The owner is also very helpful.
