Welcome to our home away from home!
It's your gateway to everything the mountains have to offer. You’ll be close to skiing, hiking, swimming, golf and mountain biking; just 18 miles north of Lake Tahoe, 5 miles from Donner Lake, and 5 minutes from the Tahoe Donner Downhill and Cross Country Ski Areas. Kick back and enjoy the cozy woodstove or savor the sunny patio and burbling stream, surrounded by meadow and forest. 

We ask that you look through the pages of this website for information about using the house. The weather in the mountains is tough on houses and we depend on your help to keep ours safe. Details about the house are in the House Info series of pages. Our suggestions for things to do are in the Fun Guide pages. Tahoe Donner HOA offers many resort amenities to homeowners and guests, both winter and summer. However they are rather strict about their rules. Please familiarize yourself with those rules and what to do in an emergency
