Rental Agreement

Donner Lake Realty, INC. managed privately owned homes and condominiums in the Donner Lake/Truckee area since 1973. Most units are available for weekly rentals; some are available nightly with a two night minimum. 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.

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 Donner Pines Market, Safeway, SaveMart and other convenience stores in the Truckee area. The security deposit is refunded 7-10 business days after you check out. It is mailed back to you in the form of a physical check to the address provided at the time of booking the reservation. We do ask that you are over the age of 25 to rent one of our units, and not to exceed the maximum occupancy of the home. Our units do not come with sheets or towels. However, we offer linen rental at a onetime cost of $10 per person. Check the current issue of the free North Tahoe Truckee this Week magazine (which we provide you at Check-In) for dining suggestions, prevailing operating times and fees of facilities available to the public within our area.

Donner Lake Realty takes pride in offering accommodations that will allow your four-legged family members to come for your vacation. Our units are listed as Pet Friendly, Pets Negotiable and Pet free homes. Please Contact us at 530-587-6055 for additional information or requests for reasonable accommodations BEFORE completing an online booking.

All reservations booked within 10 nights of arrival require payment in full at the time of booking. Other reservations booked, we ask that the security deposit be sent to us within 7 days. If the deposit is not received within the 7 days, the reservation will be cancelled. Once we receive your security deposit, your reservation is confirmed. Your balance is due 6 weeks (8weeks for lakefront units) before you arrive. If you cancel before the 6 week final due date, it is only a $50 cancellation fee. If you cancel after the 6 week final due date, you are subject to forfeit of the full RENT and TAX plus the $50 cancellation fee; your cleaning fee and security deposit would be returned. If we are able to re-rent the unit, refunds can be issued at the full or prorated rates for shorter stays minus the $50 cancellation fee.

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

The Truckee-Donner Recreation and Parks District (TRPD) operates 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. 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. No overnight vehicle parking is allowed in these areas without a special permit.

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.

The Truckee Trolley adds charm and convenience to travel within the Truckee area. It will run from downtown's Commercial Row to Donner Lake's West End Beach. You can also connect with the Tahoe Area Regional Transit (TART), which travels between Truckee and Tahoe City, and the FREE Northstar-At-Tahoe Shuttle, which also stops at the Truckee-Tahoe Airport. Schedules available upon check-in; a current schedule is also included in your unit's binder. During winter, a FREE shuttle is also available to Sugar Bowl & Donner Ski Ranch (when Donner Pass Road is OPEN).

NOTICE TO ALL Winter Guests: Neither the rental agency, 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. ALWAYS carry chains AND a shovel -- even during Summer.
