Dawnner Haven Cabin - West End Donner Lake - Truckee

Located at the West End of Donner Lake, this cabin puts you just a half-mile from the West End Beach, five miles from Sugar Bowl Ski Resort, and seven miles from historic downtown Truckee! Summer travelers can experience hiking, biking, SUP, R&R, beach shenanigans, and some killer Donner lake sunsets. Winter travelers will love the close proximity of this lovely rental to the slopes at Sugar Bowl, just five miles up Old Historic 40.

The space

Close to Sugar Bowl and Boreal ski resorts, this cabin is located on the West End of Donner Lake!

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire cabin during their stay, the 1 car garage is off-limits as the owner’s personal items are stored there for safekeeping.

Other things to note

Snowy conditions in the Sierra will slow your travel times, so please factor this into your stay at Donner Lake.

Holiday 3-day weekends will slow travel times due to traffic congestion in and out of Truckee. We highly recommend an extended stay or later checkout during these holidays, especially if you are traveling over Donner Summit. Please ask your host for more information on these traveling arrangements as it really helps avoid the dreaded 10-hour drive home to parts of Northern California or the Sacramento Airport.

One of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed

Very clean, great décor, high quality appliances, and lots of plates/utensils. The place is very clean and probably one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed at near Tahoe. The host is very responsive and helpful with accommodations.

Checkout instructions are a bit more extensive than other airbnbs, but given how nice the place was and how helpful the host was, I think it was reasonable. It’s a nice place and they just want to keep it nice.

Would come again.

Great location

Great location. Super close to both downtown Truckee and the local ski resorts. Right close to the Lake too. Accommodations were clean and in good order. The interiors had a charming rustic feel. Perfect vacation rental for a family or two with the multiple bedrooms and pretty affordable.

Cozy house in a great location

This is a cozy house in a great location if you are looking for quick access to Tahoe Donner, Truckee, and Serene Lakes, and was perfect for our family of four. It has good sized bedrooms and comfortable beds. Kitchen is well stocked. Showers have good water pressure.

Things To know

Where you’ll be

Truckee, California, United States

The West End of Donner Lake is a small community located at the base of Old Historic 40. The Pub at Donner Lake is one of my new favorite spots after a long day shredding powder at Sugar Bowl or a fun day in the sun at the West End Beach. Definitely make sure you stop in at this new gem!

Getting around

  • 4-wheel-drive is recommended for any winter travels (or a very good set of chains) to pass chain controls as you come over Donner Summit.
  • Most areas of Truckee-Tahoe will require the use of 4-wheel-drive and/or chains in winter conditions, so be prepared ahead of time before you plan to travel.
