About the area
Tahoe Donner is a renowned planned community in California's beautiful High Sierra mountains near Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. While Tahoe Donner has golf, tennis, swimming, and other recreation facilities, it also has its own down-hill and cross-country ski areas, to which our renters get discounted tickets. It is only a short drive from Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowel, North Star, Boreal Ridge, and other great downhill ski areas, and the fantastic Royal Gorge cross-country ski area. Our Alta Vista Chalet is located in a quiet and beautiful panoramic vista location, near endless hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails.
Tahoe Donner resort has strict architectural standards that provide for a pleasant blend of natural beauty and developed environment. Fencing is restricted to provide view protection of parked cars, but not to mark property boundaries. Plants on private properties must be approved by the Tahoe-Donner Architectural Standards Committee and are restricted to indigenous varieties. Bright building colors are not permitted. There is no street lighting, and external house lighting is required to be subdued.
The Lodge at Tahoe Donner is associated with the Golf Course and has an excellent restaurant with a reasonably priced menu. There are two large recreational centers with swimming pools and tennis courts, and a large, well-equipped gym. In addition, Tahoe Donner has a deeded Marina at nearby Donner Lake with a boat ramp, boat rentals, a sandy beach and a cafeteria. The Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is among the largest and most renowned in the country, second perhaps only to aforementioned nearby Royal Gorge. The Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area is ideal for beginners and quite enjoyable for intermediates, while it is very reasonably priced and just downhill from the Alta Vista Chalet. The trail system of Tahoe Donner has a major trail head near just a 5-minute walk from the Alta Vista Chalet. From there one has the choice of several loops of hiking trails of one to three-hour and longer hikes, leading along majestic vista sites, at an altitude of 7000 to 8000 feet elevation. These trails are also open and quite ideal for mountain biking. These amenities make Tahoe Donner a favorite destination for vacation renters in Winter and in Summer.
