Located on a quiet cul-de-sac just down the street from the public beach on Donner. In the center of summertime water activities, hiking, and mountain biking. The location can't be beat. Many good restaurants, shopping and grocery stores are just 10 minutes away in Truckee. Reno, with an international airport and big city conveniences is 40 minutes. In the winter, there are 12 ski resorts within a short drive. The most notable are Squaw, Alpine, Northstar, Sugarbowl.

The space

Everything is on the 2nd floor. (The 1st floor is reserved for my own use and is completely isolated). There is a large deck on the front with a propane BBQ on the side deck, great for summertime enjoyment. The front stairs are wide and gentle but there is no wheelchair access. No smoking in the house and no candles. Please remove shoes to keep our new carpet new.

Guest access

The 2nd floor is completely yours including the entire deck. There is dedicated parking as well as extra on-street parking during the summer.

Interaction with guests

I live nearby but will not be around unless you need me for something. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Other things to note

Quoted price includes 12% Transient Occupancy Tax. (Truckee TOT #1071).
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SUMMER: If you are bringing a boat, you must go to the Truckee Airport for a mandatory inspection before you can launch on Donner or Tahoe. The inspection fees start at $40 but can be more. The fine for non-compliance is severe. They open at 8:30am and it's a good idea to be there when they open because the line can get long. There are several other lakes that don't require this inspection, ask me about them if you are interested.

Our first experience with ABnB and we couldn't have loved it more. John had excellent communication and even fulfilled a special request we had. The place is super clean and just what we needed to relax.

The pictures don't do justice for how great John's place is. The location is perfect. A quiet cul-de-sac for my kids to ride bikes around in and a very quick stroll across the street to the beach but removed enough to have peace and quiet and privacy. Check in and it was so easy. John was always available and checking in. The place was so clean and had everything my family of 4 needed. Can't wait to go back!

I've visited AirBnB locations where the listing wasn't exactly accurate, and not in a good way. That's not the case with John's place at Donner Lake. It was perfect location on a court, a short walk to the lake, where you can swim, rent kayaks and paddle boards and even has a snack bar. We were so close, we just returned to the cabin for lunch. John's also included a nice binder with info on surrounding area, including restaurants in Truckee. Great place for me, my 14 year-old son and two of his friends. Little convenience store and ice cream parlor close by too.

The best thing about this little cabin was the location!! So close to the public beach! We had an amazing time and the little cabin was a perfect home base for the week!

The best Air BnB experience I've ever had! John and Kathy went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable. They even let us check-out late for no additional fee and John stopped by to see if we needed anything on our last day. Thank you for being wonderful hosts!
