    We enjoyed the home. It is very comfortable and clean. Right across the street from Donner Lake and a block from a little market and a restaurant. Truckee is a charming little town. The only negative is check out time is early at 10:00 a.m.

    We loved our stay and enjoyed being just steps away from Donner Lake! 2 minute walk to a little market and great breakfast spot. Accessible public docks are just across the street. House was very clean upon arrival and had just the right amount of space for our group. Would stay again and recommend to others!

  • Great spot for a weekend stay


    The place was great! The room were large and plenty of space. We really enjoyed hanging out in the living room. Loved that we were so close to the lake (quick 5 min walk). The main issue was the bathroom/shower. The bathroom are a little small but definitely manageable. The main that the showers clogged as soon as we got in so that was definitely a little bit of a concern. All in all would rent this again!
