This house is the perfect location to relax with a view of the lake while also being very close to amenities in town. The place is clean, convenient, and check in and communication were phenomenal. I would not hesitate to recommend this post or home!

This was a wonderful mini vacation for us. In the area for a late summer wedding, we were not up for skiing or a lot of lake time. This means we were unable to take full advantage of the great location. We did walk down to a public dock area at Donner Lake, and it was a short drive to the Donner Memorial and downtown Truckee. Location was our favorite aspect of this rental. The house itself has more room than I had feared (we all know the real estate agent meaning of "charming"). There was plenty of room for hanging out and for the various toys the kids just had to bring to feel fulfilled. The rooms were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for making breakfast at home. The deck was a perfect place to sit and eat, with a peek-a-boo view of the lake. Aaron was easy to communicate with. We had no need to talk with him while we were there, but he had given us several methods of contact if we had. Everything was as described in the listing. Overall, this was a great experience.

Aaron was super prompt in answering all my questions and responding to concerns. He went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed and our expectations were met. The cabin was great. The location was perfect for all the Donner Lake trails, parks and activities. We had a great vacation!

This was our first AirBnB stay and it was very pleasant. The house was clean and was well-equipped. We enjoyed being close to the Lake, the town of Truckee and Tahoe. Overall a very nice stay.

This is a great place! Very comfortable and cozy. Everything worked great. Fast wifi, comfy beds and couches, stocked kitchen. Aaron was great as well, answered any and all questions quickly and accurately. This is a great place to stay in the Tahoe area. Truckee is also a really cool town. Get coffee from Black Horse coffee roasters and have a burger at Burger Me!
