Lake Tahoe and Truckee Real Estate

Donner Lake Real Estate

Donner Lake Real Estate

Donner Lake is located on the western edge of Truckee, CA and is known for it’s majestic beauty and recreation opportunities.  The Donner Lake community has a fantastic camp feel as most of the lots are smaller and the neighborhood has a good mix of older cabins and luxury real estate located within walking distance of the lake.  With the Sierra Nevada mountains rising straight out of the Donner Lake, this awe inspiring mountain neighborhood has been a favorite for visitors to the Truckee area for over a hundred years and will surely be a favorite for future visitors.

During the summer months, you will find people on Donner Lake kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, fishing, waterskiing, and enjoying the Tahoe lifestyle to it’s fullest.  Every year on the 4th of July, Truckee celebrates the country’s independence with a fantastic fireworks display on the west end of Donner Lake which can be viewed from almost every Donner Lake location.  I would recommend getting out to the lake early and claiming one of the numerous public piers to take advantage of the fireworks display. The Donner Lake 4th of July Fireworks are some of the best in Northern California drawing thousands to view the spectacular display.

In the winter months Donner Lake gets buried in snow and you will find people snowshoeing and x-country skiing in the Donner Lake Memorial State Park or heading up Old Highway 40 to Sugarbowl Ski Resort, Boreal, or one of the other Donner Summit ski resorts.  With Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows just a short drive away, Donner Lake real estate is the perfect place to start your next adventure.

Donner Lake real estate pricing starts around $300,000 for A-Frame cabins and exceed $2M for modern Donner Lake lakefront estate homes.
