Right off the highway is the area that takes your breath away, It's a great place for a short visit or make a day out if it. A great place to just walk around and hike or take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor activities. It is well worth the stop to check out and see even if you can... More

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

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.
