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 and good conversation made for an absolute treat. Every morning greeted us with delicious homemade breakfasts (and Mindy did an outstanding job accomodating to my husband's gluten free diet requirements, think fresh baked gluten bread and the like). An afternoon cup of tea or glass of wine with appetizers awaited us each day. Donner Lake Inn is nestled in the woods with a creek running at the back of the property, just a few feet from the hot tub. After each day of nordic skiing, we soaked our weary bodies and listened to the sounds of the nearby creek. Very nice. Our room was comfortable and cozy. This was the ideal retreat for us.
