Rental Agreement

Most units are available for weekly rentals; some are available nightly with a two night minimum. All units are initially stocked with a few days’ supply of small hand soaps, dishwasher soap, liquid dish soap, paper towels, facial tissues, toilet paper and trash bags. If these supplies are used up and you need more, similar items can be purchased at the Donner Lake Sticks Market, Safeway, Save Mart and other convenience stores in the Truckee area.

Local telephone calls are Free; long distance calls may be restricted ‐ ‐ NO collect calls.

Many units have High‐Speed Internet available; most are WiFi.

The Truckee‐Donner Recreation and Parks District (TRPD) operate the public boat ramp at the north‐west end of the lake, on Donner Pass Road. Fees are charged for its use and for parking in their lot. Also, to make use of the boat ramps, current boat registration must be presented. All boats must be inspected prior to launch into the lake; Inspections are made at all boat ramps, for a fee.  For approximately 1.5 miles to the east of the boat ramp, and another short section at the east end of the lake, TRPD maintains boat docks which are open and free to the public on a first-come, first‐served basis; boats are limited to a 24‐hour consecutive mooring, or 24 hours non‐consecutive mooring within a five‐day period.

The Donner Memorial State Park, at the east end of Donner Lake, has a museum, beach and camping facilities, for a fee.

The Town of Truckee has passed Ordinances which regulate the use of power boats, personal watercraft and offshore swimming on Donner Lake. We urge you to familiarize yourself with the boating regulations (a copy is included in each unit's "Information Binder"), if you plan to bring a jet ski or power boat. Be aware, use the Lake with care. {Note: "jet skis" and 2‐cycle engines are still allowed but could be banned on Donner Lake; contact the Town of Truckee for the latest information: phone: (530) 550‐2320}.

All unit descriptions and rates listed in our Rental Summary are subject to change. Nightly minimums are subject to change during seasonal and holiday timeframes. Donner Lake Realty reserves the right to substitute or cancel a Reservation if a unit is removed from our program or becomes unavailable. Guests use all amenities at their own risk. Donner Lake Realty is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

*"Tentative Reservations" (TR) are those Reservations made by Guests to give the Owners an indication of the demand for their unit; a TR can ONLY be "bumped" by the Owner of the unit. A $100 Deposit is required to secure a TR and is refundable once we are able to confirm those dates and have informed you what the rental charges will be during those dates.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We require all deposits be mailed to us in the form of a check within 5-7 business days of booking the reservation. If we do not receive your deposit within 10 business days you may be subject to cancellation. There is a $50 Service Charge for any cancellation made after your Deposit has been received by us. Cancellations made after the "Full Payment Due Date" may result in forfeiture of all RENT and TAX moneys, unless we are able to re‐rent your Unit during the same time period (shorter lengths of stay will be pro‐rated); however, you will still be charged the $50 Service Charge. 

NOTICE TO ALL WINTER GUESTS: Neither Donner Lake Realty, nor the Owner of the unit you rent, can guarantee snow removal. Caltrans, County, Town and private snow removal contractors may not be able to keep all roads nor parking areas plowed at all times during significant snowfalls. Equipment breakdowns and shifting priorities may delay snow removal for extended periods of time. We, at Donner Lake Realty will make every effort to accommodate your needs; however, we can NOT work miracles and do NOT have an "inside track" of snow removal progress.
