“Thank you for a warm welcome and for providing such a professional and capable banquet staff. Pam, Mary, Nikki, Asya, Roy, I apologize for not remembering the names of the entire team, because they were all exceptional.”
– Dyane and Jeff Albrecht

“we couldn’t have asked for a better day than Sunday, and Saturday’s rehearsal was excellent as well. We are both so amazed by you and your staff- your attention to detail, timeliness, helpfulness, all of it has made this season so peaceful, smooth and fun for us. We truly can’t thank you enough for all that you did for us this weekend and the months leading up to it.”
– Adrienne

Could not have be happier with how the wedding turned out.  Everything was so smooth and the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious!  Jeff Jack the coordinator was a pleasure to work with; he always got right back to me with each question clearly answered.  He talked to me on the phone for almost an hour about a week before the wedding and we hashed everything out.  He gave me lots of tips from his 10 years of experience regarding the timing and how to make things seamless and smooth. And the venue was gorgeous!!!  The day of our wedding was the most perfect day, the setting in the trees is pretty epic.  I love that the ceremony is outside overlooking the beautiful trees and the reception is under a beautiful white tent but still outside. So many guests had so many good things to say about the venue, staff, food, bar. It was really a perfect venue for our wedding. Jeff even found our special cake forks and mailed them to my home after the wedding. Thanks for everything throughout the whole process and the best day ever!”

“Thank you so very much for last Saturday! We were just thrilled with how everything looked and how smoothly the wedding and the reception ran.  I really appreciate you and your sense of humor, and your genuine caring!  And your staff is really on the ball and just very accommodating. Thank you again for giving us such a lovely evening.  You even kept the rain away.  You are the bomb!

“Just a note to let you know of our immense satisfaction with your banquet and events manager, Jeff Jack. From the planning of the rehearsal dinner through the end of the wedding, Jeff was professional and hard-working and at the same time, easygoing and made everything fun for us. His staff was awesome. Everything went seamlessly and I would not hesitate to recommend Tahoe Donner in the future. Thank you so much for making the time we spent at Tahoe Donner a time we will always happily remember.”
- Kathleen

“I wanted to thank you and your staff for working so hard. It is always a pleasure to work with people who believe in the team spirit. Even though it was a little crazy with the rain and the ceremony, it all came together well. We hope we get to work together in the future. Have fun with the rest of your weddings this year!”

“We just got back from our honeymoon…what an amazing couple of weeks it has been. Thank you for the email! Most of all, thank you so much for all your help to make our special day so incredible. With your help and organization, our wedding was truly just what we envisioned it to be. It was a perfect day, just amazing. The Lodge was beautiful and everyone was so helpful. We were so glad that we choose the Lodge for our ceremony and reception! We will definitely be back to the Lodge during ski season and will make sure to say hi to you!  Thanks for everything, and see you this winter!”
- Rosie

“On behalf of all of our guests and family, we want to thank you both and all of your staff for a fantastic dinner service. The food received rave reviews, especially the Prime Rib (hats of to Chef Lew)! The food from appetizers to dessert was 5-star. Your wait staff served the food and drink flawlessly and timely. The Sage Room was perfect for an intimate venue of 30 people. The dinner really set the tone for the wedding that followed the next day at North Star. We look forward to our next visit so we can personally say thanks and enjoy another dinner at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner.”
- John & Jean Kurnik & Family

“I wanted you to know how grateful we are to you and your team for putting on such a wonderful event on August 6th in honor of Karen’s 50th birthday. Our guests had a delightful time. The setting, food and service were extraordinary. You were easy to work with and everything we planned went off without a hitch. Thank you for your flexibility and professionalism! Our thanks go out to Dylan and Megan, too. Their service was efficient and pleasant. It was a stress-free evening for me knowing that you were there to oversee the party. I really appreciated that a table for the older kids miraculously appeared when we realized that it was needed. We’ve been talking up The Lodge non-stop since the party. Bravo!”
- Liz

“We wanted you to know what a great job Tracy did coordinating our event at the Grotto on August 6th and what a pleasure it was working with her. A great time was had by all :)”
– Karen

“A very belated thank you for a wonderful party. The evening was perfect, and all of us had an incredible time. Thanks so much for helping us organize the party and for the perfect execution the night of the party. We really appreciate your helping us make it a special night for everyone!”
- Karen

“I’d like to express my deepest Thanks for your efforts for our ski trip dinner on Tuesday night! The food and the service were terriffic and my friends raved about it well into the night and the next morning. Your efforts were to say the least “the end of a perfect day!” I hope that this event will become an annual event and we can use your services again. I’ll look forward to our next meeting Tracy, and Thanks again for everything!”
