This was the perfect place to stay during our mini vacation. Great accommodations, fabulous hospitality and wonderful location. My husband and I especially loved the conversation with the inn keepers, Mindy and Paul, great 'folks' who take great care in providing an excellent experience.

Wow, we had fun. The room was comfortable and stocked with high quality linens. The Inn Keepers, Mindy and Paul, were kind and friendly. During our breakfast the conversations with the other guest were extraordinary and fabulous. The location of the Inn is off the busy road, but close enough to the lake to easily walk over. After a day... More

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to stay here! What a wonderful place!! Mindy couldn't have been nicer (Paul was away), the room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was DELICIOUS!! We will definitely stay here when our travels take us back to Truckee.

Not all the rooms have WIFI although it is advertised and passwords are given out. You should head for a B&B to get off the grid anyway, but in case you need access, you'll need to go to the common room on the third floor.

We thoroughtly enjoyed our 3 days at Donner Lake Inn. We went to do some hiking and there are beautiful trails close by. The rooms are quite comfortable and decorated with a woodsy theme. Mindy was most gracious with late afternoon snacks and beverage, gourmet breakfasts, and lively conversation. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the... More

While their home is beautiful and special, it is Mindy and Paul that make this place perfect. Their hospitality and suggestions of what to do in the area are perfect. Rooms have lovely details, and breakfast and 5 p.m. wine and snacks are perfect. The area is gorgeous. Go!

We stayed at The Donner Lake Inn with our three student sons at the end of March. Paul and Mindy were fantastic hosts and incredibly welcoming. We found the rooms really comfortable and as there was still snow outside it was lovely to have gas controlled "log burners" in the rooms which you could regulate really easily. We were there...

Beautiful forest setting and facility with a warm and professional reception. It's been a quiet few days before the weekend crowd, so we've had special treatment. Of course, it is a great location just across the Donner Pass Rd from the lake but just far enough to get away from the highway noise of the infrequent traffic. The common room... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was amazing! The Oesterman's were great company, very accomodating and fantastic cooks.

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... More
