Love getting out of town and heading up to Tahoe/Donner. Be sure to check out the donner museum and learn about the families who were involved in the oregon trail debacle. Always beautiful!

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

Lots to do!! Trails for biking, hiking and walking your dog. Awesome pools in the summer and playgrounds for the kids. They have a lap pool, gym, ski resort, private beach, golf course, equestrian center, cross country skiing and on and on. Great place to visit or live!

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!
