Donner Lake Vacation Rentals

One of the many great things about renting a vacation home from Tahoe Signature Properties is the sheer variety of homes, condos, and cabins we offer in various locations around Tahoe, each differing in style and color, but all sharing the same comfort, luxury, and warmth you’ve come to expect from our vacation rentals. Our regularly cleaned Donner Lake vacation cabins, for example, are not your typical cabins. Spacious and bright, while still retaining the quiet coziness of places far smaller than they are, your Tahoe vacation will be even better than you could have imagined.

Turn the Key on Charm

As the door swings inward on your Donner Lake cabin, tile floors and paneled walls lead the way to rooms each more wonderful than the last.

Living areas with soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces, and leather furnishings with just the right amount of wear are comfy spots for conversation and relaxation. The large flat screen television sits off to the side, easy to ignore when the views of the outside are so incredible, but still there when you need it for a family movie night!

Kitchens with granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and high-end appliances include two of the most essential appliances of all: a blender for making frothy tropical beverages and a wine cooler that holds more than enough bottles to ensure a good time will be had by all! Dining rooms with seating for a large group, bedrooms with lodge pole bunk beds where the younger members of your party will spend more time giggling and gossiping than they will sleeping, and bathrooms with sunken tubs and walk-in showers all hold a special charm. At Tahoe Signature Properties, every detail is important and never overlooked.

A loft made into the perfect game room features a genuine blackjack table to help you practice for your casino time, and outside, the fun continues with a wrap around deck that offers cozy spots to watch a sunset or daydream about tomorrow’s adventures. You’ve thought about this vacation and the perfect activities for a very long time, and now that it’s here, it’s better than you could have ever dreamed. We don’t blame you for wanting to make it last!

Amenities at the Lake

Situated on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada and located approximately 20 miles of Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake provides a less touristy but equally as stunning lake experience. This lake stretches for three miles, offering 7.5 miles of shoreline. In the summer, Donner Lake offers access to a wealth of water activities. In winter, its beauty remains, surrounded by snow-capped mountains that surround the lake.

Spend your summers making family memories in a Donner Lake vacation rental, with the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains as the backdrop of your getaway. Donner Lake is home to several beaches, some of which are open to the public, and some of which are accessible by property owners and vacation home occupants. Swim and play along the shoreline of the stunning Donner Lake!

Spend your days relaxing alongside the lake or try your hand at one of the many popular outdoor activities in the area. This is a great place to rent a bike for exploration! Enjoy views from multiple vantage points by exploring the Donner Lake Loop by bike. This loop circumvents the entire lake, providing approximately 7 miles of riding distance. This route is a combination of roads with bike lanes, quiet neighborhoods, and a bike path through Donner Memorial State Park. Offering both beauty and a touch of history, this route was first used by emigrant wagon trains in the 1800s. Travel on the path of history! The Donner Lake Loop is just one option of many road and trail routes available in the area.

Try your hand at getting that perfect bite with a day of fishing on Donner Lake while staying in one of our cabin rentals near Donner Lake. Both Donner Memorial State Park and Shoreline Park have popular all access fishing piers. The nearby Truckee River is a popular destination for fly fishing.

Of course, getting out and exploring by foot is one of the simplest ways to enjoy the stunning scenery around Donner Lake. For a gentle stroll, try the Lakeshore Interpretive Trail, a gentle 2.5-mile trail that takes you along the scenic lakeshore. This excursion doubles as an outdoor adventure and a cultural experience if you take advantage of the signage along the way that give fascinating details about the area’s history and ecology. To increase the physical challenge, the Lake Donner Summit View Hike via the Pacific Crest Trail leads you to the highest peak in Donner Summit, where you are rewarded for your efforts with a panoramic view of the lake and valley below!

The lake is a gorgeous place, offering plenty of amenities to make your stay memorable! These include:


Ping Pong Tables


Designated Swimming Area

Horseshoe Pits

Beach Volleyball

Storage area for boats and trailers


Launching area for boats
