Everything was well arranged, and the innkeepers were fantastic.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Inn in the "Sanford Court" room. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile. Mary and Tino are very warm and accommodating innkeepers. The room was quiet, clean and cozy and the breakfast was spectacular. Though I have no other B&B experience to compare it to, I am almost afraid to... More

My husband, 3 year old son, and I had a memorable stay at the Donner Lake Inn over the Easter weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted so warmly from Mary, she offered us drinks and snacks right away and really succeeded in getting my family to unwind in her home! After chatting with Mary that first night,... More

There is a reason this B&B is the highest-rated in the area - comfortable rooms, great location, friendly host, tasty breakfast, convenient location. While she makes it seem effortless, Mary clearly works hard to make sure her guests have a fantastic stay - no request is too small and there are too many nice touches to list here. She welcomes...

We just returned from 3 nights at the Donner Lake Inn and had a fabulous time. The location is minutes off of Hwy 80, right across the street from Donner Lake and only about a 10 min drive from Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. Mary was super accommodating and makes the BEST breakfasts (and afternoon snacks and cookies). Our son loved... More

I stayed at the coziest, friendliest, and most beautiful place i could have hoped for. The hosts treated us like family and the rooms were just wonderful. The view from our room was good although it was partly covered by a big snow cave. Not the cheapest accommodation but worth every penny for a romantic weekend in the mountain.

We just got back from Mary and Tino's hospitality. We had the best time ever staying at the Donner Lake Inn. Mary and Tino are wonderful innkeepers and their inn is a very special place to stay. They are very accommodating and helpful with restaurant recommendations and lift tickets. The breakfasts were great - best pancakes ever!

We travelled to Truckee, CA with our daughter to see the snow and skiing. We stayed at Donner Lake Inn for two nights. Great scene, friendly hosts, great breakfast, clean, cozy and comfortable Bembrige room, relaxed and save environment are the only things that we can say about this place. Best deal that money can buy!

We've always avoided Bed and Breakfasts because we didn't feel it would be appropriate to bring our children to that type of place. We decided at the last minute to attend a Donner event and this was one of very few places that happened to have two rooms available for my family of four as well as my parents. We... More
