We had a wonderful 4 nights at the Donner Lake Inn in September. The breakfasts were delicious, the room was perfect and it was magical to spend the evenings in the hot tub under the stars! The best thing about the inn though? Mindy and Paul. They are brilliant and friendly hosts with a mine of information about the area and they go out of their way to make your holiday fabulous. Thank you Paul for the photo of the bear which we have passed off as our own!

The Inn is across the road from the Donner Lake and a short drive from the town of Truckee which had a great selection of restaurants. The area is a hiker's paradise and again Mindy and Paul came up trumps with their suggestions. I'd also recommend a visit to Virginia City.

Thanks again Mindy and Paul.
Thank Kath S

Wife and I stayed 2 nights with Paul and Mindy, and enjoyed our time there immensely.
The room was spacious and warmly appointed, the breakfasts were delicious and very filling, with plenty of fresh fruit each morning, and the snack and beverage get togethers in the afternoons were tasty and full of good conversation. Paul and Mindy are excellent hosts, and it showed in all aspects of our visit. Certainly looking forward to getting back.

Thank you for your review. We truly enjoy meeting and interacting with our guests and sharing the passion we have for all the activities to do and places to eat in the Truckee/Donner/Tahoe area. We especially enjoy the interactions between our guests at the breakfast table and during our afternoon complimentary snack and beverage time. We have many return guests, and especially look forward to return stays, and catching up with folks who were initially guests and are now friends and hearing of their activities since the last stay. Thank you again-until next time.

This is a very nice B&B on the shore of Donner Lake. It is convenient to all north Lake Tahoe destinations, and is well placed for a quick getaway to beat traffic home to the SF bay area. Breakfast is delicious and is served at 8:00 AM, a good time for skiing or any other activity. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious (for Tahoe), well appointed, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The common lounge area is nice. We will definitely return

Donner Lake Inn is a wonderful B&B in a peaceful wooded setting a short walk to a large public beach and park, and to seasonal kayak rentals. Paul and Mindy are a super host and hostess team, and Mindy's breakfasts are beyond excellent. Add late afternoon treats and beverages, up to date info. re: things to do in the spectacular surrounding area, good places to eat and shop, walking and driving directions, and these are reasons a stay at the Donner Lake Inn has become a yearly tradition for a myself and a friend. Mindy and Paul seem like extended family, and we expect to see them in 2019 for a seventh consecutive year.

Thank you for this review. It is especially meaningful knowing that you have stayed with us each of the past 6 years. We enjoy being creative with our breakfast so we can try and provide a new item each time you visit, and enjoy sharing our recipes. We look forward to catching up with you each year and agree that you have become like an extended family to us also. Thank you again, until next year....

Combine the spectacular mountain scenery, the warmth and graciousness of innkeepers Mindy and Paul, and Mindy's awesome breakfasts and you can't go wrong. It's conveniently located a few miles from town, across the road from really great homemade ice cream and across another road from Donner Lake in a peaceful and quiet setting.
Mindy and Paul made us feel completely welcome in their home and, upon our request, provided customized itineraries for hiking and day trips. We spent six days at Donner Lake and were not ready to leave. Many thanks for the iced coffee.

We are so happy to be able to share our home and the things we love about the Donner Lake Region with folks like yourselves. You come as a guest and leave as a friend, with great memories for both yourself and for us. Thank you again for the kind words.
