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

We stayed at the Inn with my small daughter during the holiday period between Christmas and NY. The place is really nice, Mary and Tino are very warm people and the inn itself is clean, tidy and cozy. Will stay there every time i plan ski vacation in the area

I stayed here with my wife and four children a couple days before Christmas. My children particularly enjoyed the family room, which was festively decorated. While there was no snow, the kids were able to stay entertained with the countless DVDs and board games provided. My family also enjoyed the homemade breakfast that Mary, the hostess, prepared. The hosts were... More

This inn is very welcoming. The beds are excellent and our room was quiet with a beautiful view into the trees on the property. The owners are very warm people and provide a lovely common space for reading. The deck off the breakfast/great room is very relaxing and a good spot to bird-watch! The great room is prettier than the... More

My husband, myself and 21 year old daughter stayed here for four nights. Mary and Tino are the most cordial owners of any B & B we've ever stayed at. Mary made the greatest breakfasts and we took the opportunity of take a sunset cruise on Donner Lake. We brought two friends along and Mary, Tino, my family and friends... More

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
