Down to the quality of the chairs and tables, I felt like they really put some effort into making this a 1st class place. The drinks were very unique and we like it when something new is offered, instead of the same thing at every place we go. The golfing was outstanding as well as the views!

Whether you own a home as we do or rent a vacation rental @ Tahoe Donner you are in for a treat. With more amenities than you could possibly use, the key is to plan ahead. A boat on Donner Lake or a short drive down to Lake Tahoe for a canoe, kayak, ski or sailboat await. Fishing, hiking--simply the... More

While staying at Tahoe Donner we took the opportunity to hike on one of the many trails. The best one was the ridge hike to see a sky view of Donner Lake. Just stunning.

Tahoe Donner is a world class nordic center. It is so beautiful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My favorite part is hanging out at the Nordic center deck in the sun. Great food. Good for families. Best deal in Tahoe.

Another stop I have to make whenever I'm in Tahoe. This place is absolutely beautiful! You have to stop by the bridge and take a picture of Donner lake. If you have a chance, it is also a great place to camp!

We love living here in TD. The amenities are fabulous, it's easy to meet people and they are warm and welcoming. Water aerobics and Zumba are my favorite classes, but I also use the gym and the trails. And we love our homeowners' beach at Donner Lake, where we have potluck BBQs every Monday evening during summer. The downhill ski... More

The Tahoe Donner trail system is unbeatable. I have hiked them, mountain biked them and have been horseback riding. They are well marked, so even if you are alone, it's difficult to get lost. The TD Association has done a great job of keeping them up, adding bridges over creeks, clearly marking the boundaries, and keeping them clear of garbage.... More
