We just stayed for three nights at the Inn. It was fabulous. Paul and Mindy were very gracious and obviously enjoy what they do. They were even kind enough to get up early Monday morning so we had coffee and a sack-snack to head for the airport with. Thank you both. We hope to be back in the area soon.... More

The Donner Lake Inn is an excellent B & B with good access to Donner Lake and Truckee CA. Paul and Mindy are exceptional hosts with lots of personality and lots of info about the area including restaurants, drives, hikes and other local activity. The B & B and the rooms are well maintained. They have quality beds, linens, towels,... More

Being a retired veteran I look for deals to save money. This place was generous to offer a free night for Veterans Day and a discount on a second night. Concerned about the weather this time of the year we made reservations and fortunately the weather was perfect! Cold at night but mid-40s during the day. Our hosts were so... More

My husband and I spent one night at this B&B, and just had the best experience ever. Firstly, the owners - Paul and Mindy - are simply so wonderful, gracious, friendly, warm, and accommodating. We spent quite a few hours conversing with them and felt like we had made new friends instantly. Mindy's breakfast was so divine, and my husband... More

We loved Donner Lake Inn. It was beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. We would have liked to be there more than one night. Our hosts were friendly and gracious, the breakfast delicious and thoughtful and the room very nice. We also liked the hot tub!

I would highly recommend the Donner Lake Inn. A beautiful setting, excellent rooms and facilities (hot tub, the great room for relaxing with friends) and Paul and Mindy, the host and hostess, were the best. Not only did they serve delicious breakfasts, plus an afternoon snack, but told us many places to visit and restaurants they recommended. We could not... More

This was a great place to stay. The hosts Paul & Mindy were terrific. They provided a wealth of information about the area sites and restaurants. The morning breakfast is served at 8:30 and late afternoon snack at 5-6pm. The food was excellent and freshly home-made. The Inn has 5 rooms and all are furnished nicely in a mountain motif... More

We had a great stay at the lovely Donner Lake Inn. Everything we could ask for: the room was clean, charming, comfortable; breakfast was tasty; the couple running it (Paul and Mindy) were courteous and welcoming. We only had one night there, but we'd definitely recommend it.

We stayed at this beautiful, quiet little gem for two nights the weekend after the 4th of July. The owner hosts, Paul and Mindy are as gracious as they come, making us feel more like friends visiting their home more than guests renting a room. The place itself is impeccably maintained, our room "Moose Crossing" was comfy and stylish. If... More
