just spent a weekend at loch leven lodge on donner lake. it an older property. best described as rustic charm. rooms all have lake front views. the "suites" have an additional sofa, shared deck, and small kitchenettes. everything is pretty dated, but that is exactly the charm of the place. the rooms are on the small side and with all the stained wood, can be a little bit dark. the bathrooms are tiny, and the showers even tinier. the queen bed was comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. the manager debbie was an absolute delight, personable, charming, informative - very laid back, a perfect match to lazy feel of this old resort. it isn't the rotz carleton, but maked no pretense to be anything other than what it is - funky, cozy, rustic - perched right on the lake with spectacular views. we'll be back!
