Tahoe Donner is a rustic-modern resort in the High Sierra offering a range of indoor and outdoor venues for weddings large and small, during any season of the year. Though we are five minutes from downtown Truckee, our 7,000 forested acres feel a world away and provide easy access to stunning mountain landscapes.

In the summer, our picturesque Pavilion offers an outdoor ceremony among lush greens, towering pines, and flowery meadows, followed by a reception underneath the linen-draped ceilings and twinkling lights of our 80 x 40 clear paneled tent (accommodating up to 200 guests). In the winter, The Lodge Restaurant & Pub offers spacious floor-to-wall windows looking out onto unobstructed views of the snow covered trees and mountains. And if you’re looking for an after party, take over The Lodge’s entire Pub for the evening. Built in 2015, Tahoe Donner’s Alder Creek Adventure Center - also available for year-round weddings - is nestled at the base of our cross country ski trails, equestrian center, and bikeworks, with a circular drive entrance, modern lodge interior, and spacious patio overlooking the mountains. All of our venues also includes beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces for a rehearsal dinner and farewell brunch.

For your guests, Tahoe Donner has a wide range of conveniently located lodging options, from luxury vacation homes to one bedroom condos and even a creekside campground. Guests who stay at Tahoe Donner have access to the many private amenities of the resort, meaning they will be at no loss for activities over your wedding weekend. Our team can also arrange for parties from your group to take a guided hike, mountain bike, or horseback ride, golf at our private course, or ski and snowshoe our groomed trails. 

Tahoe Donner weddings include full catering from our award-winning chef and kitchen at The Lodge at Tahoe Donner. Our team of professional wedding coordinators understand the importance of creating the perfect wedding day and pride themselves in providing highly personalized, top of the line services. We look forward to turning your vision of a dream mountain wedding into reality.  Visit Tahoe Donner Weddings or call 530-582-9643 for more information.


"We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for making our wedding so perfect. We still look back at the night and are just in awe in how amazing it turned out. We can honestly say we wouldn't have changed a thing, and much of that is due to you and your staff. Thank you so much for guiding me through this process (because I clearly had no idea what I was doing at points!), from the planning to the execution on the night of. We can't thank you enough for giving us both the best night of our lives."

Our fondest regards."

"WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE. As the Groom I was excited to get married but NEVER thought that I would have the time of my life as I did. Everything about the loge at TAHOE DONNER was amazing. We played golf in the morning on a beautiful mountain course, got ready with a few cocktails from the bar, and drove around in golf carts to take pictures which I amazingly enjoyed! i was complimented on their food by several people and the staff was very gracious and accommodating! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!"
