Both have shops, restaurants, taverns galore. This town has become the #1 hotspot of Tahoe and Tahoe Donner Resort is now famous, google it.
I try hard to give you the absolute best rates. Please do not compare mine to another smaller house or a condo located in a less desirable area like South Shore or Kings Beach or on some busy street like Northwoods in Tahoe Donner. There is no comparison, it would not be comparing apples to apples.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I have been renting our other 3 bedroom house, also in Tahoe Donner, since 2002. Now we have this 6 bdrm house too. It's very popular. People love it. Large groups of 31 or more rent both houses.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner: This house is huge and accomidates large groups. Also in Tahoe Donner, one of the best area's around all of the Lake Tahoe region. Close to everything but not too close so it's quiet. The natural beauty is spectacular here on the north shore. It is close enough to the SF bay area for a weekend trip. 2.5 hrs from Walnut Creek.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Usually rents as 6 bdrms but we do accept reservations for just the 4 bdrm portion of the house during the off seasons or last minute anytime.
