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

Great innkeepers Paul and Mindy and a wonderful Inn in Truckee, CA. Super clean and charming Inn. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a special place to stay in a quiet lake-side in the mountains of CA.

We weren't sure about our arrival time and when I called to explain we might be late, Mindy and Paul were very accommodating, told us to take our time, and they'd be waiting for us. We arrived just before dark. Paul quickly got us into our room, gave a great restaurant recommendation (Village Pizzeria) and brought down towels for the... More

This was our second visit to Paul and Mindy's Donner Lake Inn. The property is beautiful, the area has lots of interesting near-by sights, the hosts are warm and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay here. Mindy was just the perfect host and everything is done beautifully. The breakfasts are fantastic - all home-made as our the cookies in the evening. We were given tons of really useful advice including print outs of maps and directions plus places to visit. The hospitality and warmth is just wonderful. The room... More
