Our spacious 3-story house is located on a quite cul-de-sac one block from Donner Lake, with views from every room. The four of us who live here--Travis, Erica, Allison, and Rob--all work full time, but also take full advantage of where we live. If we aren't at the house, you can find us enjoying the lake, hiking, trail running, mountain biking, rafting, or climbing. We also have a 10 year old Australian Shepard named Cali, who is a sweetie.
The room available is on the lower, deck-level floor of our house, and shares a bathroom with Allison. Guests have access to the downstairs living room (with TV and fireplace), as well as the deck, and the upstairs kitchen. The bed itself is a twin trundle bed, which can pull out to either be two twins or one full bed. Please let us know which set-up you prefer at the time of your booking. Price is increased by $20/night for two people versus one (this is reflected by Air BnB).
Donner Lake is about 3 miles from downtown Truckee. We have a small grocery store 3 blocks from our house, and aside from the lake, you can also access Donner Memorial State Park (and the adjacent Coldstream wilderness area) by foot. Truckee does have a free public bus, which runs past the house every hour or so and can take you downtown.
Come stay with us and enjoy a break from the craziness of Lake Tahoe in the summer--Donner Lake is Tahoe's less busy, and warmer, option! If you are interested and we are available, we'd also love to show you around, be it on the trails or in town.
This cozy room in the picturesque Donner Lake area was super convenient for access to Truckee and Skiing. I came for the snow and brought some with me. Erica and crew were super accommodating and the local area tips were very helpful. i really enjoyed my time with them was sorry when it came to an end. I highly recommend this place and these people. If you want a getaway that is EPIC ,it TAINT no PROBLEM here. I will definitely be back! Thanks to them all.
Awesome host(s), great conversation, comfortable home and bedroom-highly recommended.
Nice place, great location, and Erica was a very nice host!
Erica is an excellent host, and so were her roommates and dog. The house is ideally located for North Shore Tahoe skiing. The room is clean and comfortable. Erica was super accomodating of my schedule, as weather on the East Coast delayed my arrival substantially. Erica left the door unlocked and a light on and had a note ready for me explaining some basic things I needed to know upon arrival, and had the wireless info written down in the room for me. Great host, I would gladly stay again if I'm back in the Tahoe area.
I booked this place last minute while snowboarding at Northstar. I was looking for a chill place to recover and rest after a day of heavy shreading, and this fit the bill. I was pleasantly surprised by the easy going attitude and good mood of Erica and her housemates. I was greeting with a roaring fire, good tunes, a cold brew, board games, and Olympics. All of these things were optional, as the room is downstairs away from "main" house, so if you are staying here and just want peace and quiet that's available to you too! Bottom line, if you are around North lake and in need of place to stay do not hesitate to stay here.
Erica and her roommates were easygoing and friendly hosts, the house was very nice and in a good location, and the bedroom and bathroom were both clean and tidy. Thank you Erica for providing me with a great place to stay while I was in Truckee!
Erica is awesome! She made me feel very much at home and was so helpful with the weather and how to get around town. The room is cozy, really clean, and they have a great kitchen. Room mates were also all very friendly and kind. They are so fortunate to live in such a cozy home in such a gorgeous part of the planet and they do the community so much good by sharing it with us travellers!
Oh wow, what a fun place to stay. Got off the California Zephyr (train) and public bus took us almost to the door. It's all about wood and woods -- fireplace, firewood, decks, soaring sugar pines, etc. Attractively furnished and lit. Kitchen rocks. Plenty of heat on a cold night and freedom to roam about this awesome cabin.
My wife hurt her ankle hiking and Erica went totally out of her way to wake up early and take us to the station .. with a few photo op along the way.
World's best-stocked convenience store walking distance.
Great place. Great hosts.
Erica and roommates are a pleasure to stay with. The bed is comfortable and the amenities are great. Thanks Erica!
