I would highly recommend the Donner Lake Inn. A beautiful setting, excellent rooms and facilities (hot tub, the great room for relaxing with friends) and Paul and Mindy, the host and hostess, were the best. Not only did they serve delicious breakfasts, plus an afternoon snack, but told us many places to visit and restaurants they recommended. We could not... More

This was a great place to stay. The hosts Paul & Mindy were terrific. They provided a wealth of information about the area sites and restaurants. The morning breakfast is served at 8:30 and late afternoon snack at 5-6pm. The food was excellent and freshly home-made. The Inn has 5 rooms and all are furnished nicely in a mountain motif... More

We had a great stay at the lovely Donner Lake Inn. Everything we could ask for: the room was clean, charming, comfortable; breakfast was tasty; the couple running it (Paul and Mindy) were courteous and welcoming. We only had one night there, but we'd definitely recommend it.

We stayed at this beautiful, quiet little gem for two nights the weekend after the 4th of July. The owner hosts, Paul and Mindy are as gracious as they come, making us feel more like friends visiting their home more than guests renting a room. The place itself is impeccably maintained, our room "Moose Crossing" was comfy and stylish. If... More

This is an absolutely wonderful bed and breakfast. Paul and Mindy really care about their guests and went all-out to make to make our stay special: meticulously cleaned rooms with wonderful toiletries and excellent insulation and privacy; delicious breakfasts (light pancakes, potato and onion quiche, fruit salad with lemon curd, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits...); tea and coffee set out early each morning;...

We stayed two nights at the Donner Lake Inn with our 14 year old son who was in town for the National Cycling Championships. We had a condo booked since it was a two week trip but wanted to start of with something a little more vacation-y. Paul and Mindy were very helpful with our planning. We shipped the bikes... More

My wife and I chose the Donner Lake Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews and the website. We were impressed by the care that Paul and Mindy take to make everyone welcome.
