Clair Tappaan Lodge is a rustic mountain lodge nestled in the Sierra Nevada of California at the top of Donner Pass. Built by Sierra Club volunteers in the 1930s, the lodge is an excellent home base for year-round recreation. The friendly, casual atmosphere and affordable nightly rates (including family-style meals) make the Lodge the perfect rustic getaway to the Tahoe/Donner area.
Each day of their stay, guests assist with daily kitchen chores such as meal preparation and serving, setting tables, or dish washing. These chores require about one half hour each day. Because the Lodge is an old building, constructed of wood and shingles, no smoking is allowed, either in the building or on the surrounding trails. A small, friendly, and professional staff care for the Lodge year round.
