    Edgewater...majestic Donner Lakefront With Panoramic Lake and Mountain Views

    Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and patio
    Gorgeous 3.5 bedroom, 2.5 bath luxury custom-built home with the most amazing views of Donner Lake and Donner Peak. This property is located on Donner Lake, a 3-mile-long specimen of beauty and tranquility, cradled by mountains and Tahoe National Forest, just outside of historic Truckee, CA, with close proximity to Lake Tahoe, Reno, world class ski resorts, amazing alpine lakes, streams, trails, and golf courses. Nearby ski resorts include Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Homewood, Boreal, Sugar Bowl, and Kirkwood. Besides downhill skiing and snowboarding, local activities include cross country skiing, snow shoeing, river rafting, hiking, cycling, boating/waterskiing/wakeboarding, fishing, rock climbing, proximity to State Parks and trails, Lake Tahoe, Reno, many world-class golf courses, casinos, excursions in the nearby town of Truckee, and so much more. This home boasts sixteen-foot-tall windows in the great room overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains, along with a majestic granite stone wood-burning fireplace, dining table for 6-8, bar seating for 5, cook's kitchen, high quality electronics, fastest wiFi available, and comfortable, stylish furnishings. The great room exits to a deck overlooking the lake with outdoor furniture and gas BBQ. The luxurious, well-appointed bedrooms accommodate guests with two kings, one queen, and two twin beds. The baths are up-to-date and beautiful. Access to the property is from Donner Avenue which parallels Donner Pass Road just above; the short driveway is flat and leads to a two-car, attached garage where gear can be housed securely for when guests are lounging and relaxing at the property. For those interested in returning to 5-star rated VRBO listing #477604, this is it with new ownership and some thoughtful, stylish improvements! We are just now starting to share this property with guests so there aren't many reviews, but they are good ones! For another idea of the type of rental we offer, please visit VRBO #862948, at The Sea Ranch, California, our other favorite place. Cheers!
