This is an absolutely wonderful bed and breakfast. Paul and Mindy really care about their guests and went all-out to make to make our stay special: meticulously cleaned rooms with wonderful toiletries and excellent insulation and privacy; delicious breakfasts (light pancakes, potato and onion quiche, fruit salad with lemon curd, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits...); tea and coffee set out early each morning;...

We stayed two nights at the Donner Lake Inn with our 14 year old son who was in town for the National Cycling Championships. We had a condo booked since it was a two week trip but wanted to start of with something a little more vacation-y. Paul and Mindy were very helpful with our planning. We shipped the bikes... More

We spent two nights at the Donner Lake Inn for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect choice! Paul and Mindy were so welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts and evening snacks were delicious! We will definitely be back.

We had a fantastic B&B visit at the Donner Lake B&B Inn. My husband and I were spending a few days vacation to relax and spend time in the mountains. Paul and Mindy were wonderful hosts, with great suggestions for activities and dinner, as well as just a relaxing time. The rooms were warm and inviting, with fireplace and warm... More

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at the Donner Lake Inn with our great hosts, Mindy and Paul. We can't say enough. The room was cozy, well-decorated, and comfortable. The hot tub at night under the stars was special. The breakfasts were out of this world. Mindy is an amazing chef!! They treated us with the utmost graciousness, even packing... More

My wife and I chose the Donner Lake Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews and the website. We were impressed by the care that Paul and Mindy take to make everyone welcome. The breakfasts are special and Mindy took extra time and care to make sure that my wife (who is gluten sensitive) had something special available every day. The Inn... More

Spent 5 nights here with my teenage children and friends. Very comfortable clean rooms, beautiful living area and deck. 5 minutes walk from beach. Fantastic hosts always helpful with activity and dinner suggestions. Epic breakfasts. I especially enjoyed Mindy's company - lovely person

Fell in love with the hot tub by the creek,the immaculate room, gourmet breakfasts and comfortable atmosphere. The inn keepers are warm and interesting to talk to. Traveled here from NJ, and I can't wait to go back.

Our family had a great stay here for a short weekend. Mindy and Paul are very welcoming and hospitable. I was participating in the Tough Mudder early on a Saturday and Mindy was very accomodating with our breakfast time and dietary needs. (we are all vegetarians) Mindy was also very accommodating to our picky eating 5 year old. Both breakfasts... More

The owners are welcoming and friendly. They will ask individuals for food needs and make gourmet breakfast with that in mind. Very clean and quiet but 5 minute walk to main beach at Donner Lake. Lots to do around the lake and they provide plenty of suggestions. Cute rooms and wifi too. Afternoon wine or beer and snacks
