Set in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range near Donner Lake, The Lodge Restaurant & Pub is a wonderful place to celebrate your destination special event amid breathtaking pastoral beauty. This popular restaurant and banquet center is the cornerstone of Tahoe Donner, an exclusive planned community with its own golf course and access to a wealth of outdoor recreational opportunities. Many of these activities, such as the equestrian center, biking, skiing, camping, golf and more, are also open to the public.
The Lodge, designed with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking towering pines and the rugged mountain golf course, highlights the glories of the natural world in a classic Tahoe-style ambiance.
Spring through fall, wedding ceremonies can be held at one of The Lodge Restaurant & Pub’s picturesque sites. The Pavilion Area, just outside the restaurant, offers a beautiful arbor overlooking the wooded mountains. Say “I do” right on the grass, then enjoy cocktails and appetizers al fresco followed by your reception in the adjacent tiled Pavilion. This spacious peaked tent, luxuriously draped in pleated white fabric, is compatible with any style of décor and the clear sides all around let the outside in.
For a more intimate ceremony, cocktail party or dinner, host it in the landscaped Grotto, which features a waterfall and also provides some lovely photo opportunities.
In the winter months, all of The Lodge Restaurant & Pub’s interior spaces are warm and inviting, with alderwood trim and high, open-beamed ceilings. Huge picture windows capture the dynamic view, which is especially compelling in winter when the trees and mountains wear a dusting of snow, creating a magnificent panoramic landscape.
The Sage and Aspen Rooms on the second story are cozy settings for rehearsal dinners, family reunions, or birthday parties. Both overlook the 18th green and the Aspen Room has a fireplace. The attractive downstairs banquet room is a private reception option in any season. And last but not least, The Lodge’s pub is available, too, as a fun spot for the after-party.
With the rustic splendor of its environs, pleasing architecture and gracious hospitality, The Lodge Restaurant & Pub at Tahoe Donner is a standout venue for any event.
