Tahoe Donner is a great place to vacation in both the summer and the winter. It's on the cleaner side of Lake Tahoe, North Lake Tahoe. For some reason this area of the Tahoe area is just always greener and cleaner. Tahoe Donner is full of vacation rentals that are moderately priced, their are several that are adjacent to the Tahoe Donner Golf Course where I used to live. The area has several restaurants with in a short drive, equistrian center, golf, hiking, both nordic and cross country skiing. It is just up the hill from Donner lake which has a great area to rent small boats, kayaks, and bicycles. It is a great place to visit year round, the best deals for lodging are in the fall and spring.

We stayed at a cabin in Tahoe Donner. Note... This is not on Donner Lake and is a good ten minute or more drive to the lake depending on where you are. The cabin was on a hill preventing bike riding or easy walking. But, a short drive down the hill, led to bike, walking and horse paths. We were some distance from the Rec center and amenities, but the are was beautiful. Huge Mule Deer came to graze at sunrise and the sunsets were spectacular! Note, the first day the cabin was quite hot and without air conditioning. The sun bakes it on the ridge and there was little relief. The weather turned and we cooled down. We could not have stayed if the weather had not changed.

There is NOTHING I don't like except the Northwoods entrance off Donner Pass Rd which is steep and slippery in a winter storm .. But TD has everything a family could want and MORE. We love it so much that we bought 2 properties there - and pay the dues on both of them just so that we could have the amenity package .. we'll keep one of the properties for our lifetimes .. We did live there for about 5 years ... but we wanted acreage so we moved down to the banana belt section where we can spread out a bit more. Excellent community fantastic amenities - FIRST CLASS

As a homeowner I may be biased but you cant beat the amenities that our grandkids get to use. They love the trail rides and the golfing, along with the ability to launch our boat at Donner Lake and fish for crawdads at the beach. We go to Pizza at the Lodge and play Bocce ball and overall it is a fantastic place. Truckee Thursday are really fun during the summer and my husband skiis in the winter. All of the grandkids started skiing at the small ski area that Tahoe Donner runs. It is really a great value for what we have to pay for Association fees. They are constantly making improvements to all the facilities.
