I first saw this complex of buildings in October and was curious but in walking around the grounds I could find no one about, just a few cars in a large grouping of seemingly desolate buildings, a bit like wandering in a modern day de Chirico painting. But it is on Donner Lake, which I love, so I threw caution... More

I have never been thru the Donner Pass since I was 14. Then it was a winter wonderland. This time the fall color is beautiful and the view of the Donner lake and Donner Lake Village is awesome. In the distance I could see snow being made on the ski slopes of the Sugar Bowl. When I finally got down... More

We were only there one night but service was great, rooms were nice, with connecting doors so the three couples could get together after dinner to talk. We could walk to the lake in a few steps. We went in late October and it rained & SNOWED, but we loved it and were prepared for it.

Got there to find the rental office closed.. did not know it was a condo rental. Called the manager who came over right away, checked us in and offered us great info about the area and the facility which was unfortunately under construction. No loud noise, they seemed to keep that well contained. The room was decorated nicely, they are... More

Excellent customer service, I appreciated a run down of the facility, and the awareness of the lounge area, with a gas lit fireplace, overlooking the serenity of the lake. Our room was appointed nicely, and comfortable, with a partial view of the lake.

Nestled on Donner Lake with gorgeous views of mountains and lake..Property is very clean and well groomed..We enjoy the lower level (2 story) with seating and picnic table on our patio...There is a boat rental on the property and docks to tie up or just relax and maybe fish.

I LOVED staying here. Wish we could have stayed longer. The front desk person was nice, the accommodations was more than we expected. We stayed in a lakeside view lodgette. It was PERFECT! The room was decorated really cute, the beds were comfortable (even the pull out couch), the view was better than expected and I love the fact that... More

We stayed here recently and our room was probably not updated since the mid 80's. Everything was dark in color, the purple/navy polyester bedspread, the brown formica counter and cabinets, olive green stove and brown carpet. TV was super old and the faucet only worked if you turned it all the way on. Walls were thin enough that we could... More

This is an awesome setting and the accommodations are clean and welcoming. Our lodgette room was lovely and had everything that we could want, including coffee and coffeemaker! After all, we weren't going to be spending tons on time indoors! The staff was friendly and accommodating. I noticed that the housecleaning was using "green" products which I appreciate so much....
