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

My husband and I just returned from our second visit to Donner Lake Inn with inn keepers Mindy and Paul. This being our second visit to the Inn, we were welcomed back as old friends. The Inn itself is charming and comfortable with the feel of a rustic mountain home. Mindy and Paul are lovely hosts who make every effort... More

In October my husband and I visited Truckee and stayed at the Inn. Two months later, we are still talking fondly of our experience there: the place itself, nestled in the pines, our down-to-earth hosts, Mindy and Paul who treated us like family, time meeting other guests, kindred spirits, by the fire, lingering over sumptuous homemade breakfast and delicious conversation,...

This was the perfect place to stay during our mini vacation. Great accommodations, fabulous hospitality and wonderful location. My husband and I especially loved the conversation with the inn keepers, Mindy and Paul, great 'folks' who take great care in providing an excellent experience.

Wow, we had fun. The room was comfortable and stocked with high quality linens. The Inn Keepers, Mindy and Paul, were kind and friendly. During our breakfast the conversations with the other guest were extraordinary and fabulous. The location of the Inn is off the busy road, but close enough to the lake to easily walk over. After a day... More
