We thoroughtly enjoyed our 3 days at Donner Lake Inn. We went to do some hiking and there are beautiful trails close by. The rooms are quite comfortable and decorated with a woodsy theme. Mindy was most gracious with late afternoon snacks and beverage, gourmet breakfasts, and lively conversation. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the... More

While their home is beautiful and special, it is Mindy and Paul that make this place perfect. Their hospitality and suggestions of what to do in the area are perfect. Rooms have lovely details, and breakfast and 5 p.m. wine and snacks are perfect. The area is gorgeous. Go!

We stayed at The Donner Lake Inn with our three student sons at the end of March. Paul and Mindy were fantastic hosts and incredibly welcoming. We found the rooms really comfortable and as there was still snow outside it was lovely to have gas controlled "log burners" in the rooms which you could regulate really easily. We were there...

Beautiful forest setting and facility with a warm and professional reception. It's been a quiet few days before the weekend crowd, so we've had special treatment. Of course, it is a great location just across the Donner Pass Rd from the lake but just far enough to get away from the highway noise of the infrequent traffic. The common room... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was amazing! The Oesterman's were great company, very accomodating and fantastic cooks. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. I have special dietary needs and Paul had restaurant menus to look at, even going as far as calling the restaurants to see if I...

My husband and I recently spent a week at the Donner Lake Inn B&B. This really was the ideal retreat for us. Mindy and Paul are living their dream as innkeepers. Paul was there over the weekend and Mindy was our hostess for the remainder of the week and we had the loveliest time. Mindy's warmth, attentiveness to our needs... More

The Donner Lake Inn is a great get-away spot. It is not far from the bay area, but feels a million miles away. It is very peaceful, yet close to skiing, the cute town of Truckee and Donner Lake is a short walk away! Each breakfast is a treat prepared fresh each morning. It was nice to return in the... More

My wife and I have been the the Donner Lake Inn many times. We have stayed at "The Squirrels Nest" too... Love the hard wood former basketball floors. At the Inn, Tino has done a lot of upgrades over the years. It's always like spending the weekend with old friends. Food is always great. Truckee is a fun town to... More
