5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

We stayed at the Inn with my small daughter during the holiday period between Christmas and NY. The place is really nice, Mary and Tino are very warm people and the inn itself is clean, tidy and cozy. Will stay there every time i plan ski vacation in the area

I stayed here with my wife and four children a couple days before Christmas. My children particularly enjoyed the family room, which was festively decorated. While there was no snow, the kids were able to stay entertained with the countless DVDs and board games provided. My family also enjoyed the homemade breakfast that Mary, the hostess, prepared. The hosts were very welcoming and recommended numerous restaurants for our family to dine in.

This inn is very welcoming. The beds are excellent and our room was quiet with a beautiful view into the trees on the property. The owners are very warm people and provide a lovely common space for reading. The deck off the breakfast/great room is very relaxing and a good spot to bird-watch! The great room is prettier than the photos on the website. This is a perfect place to stay when we want to be near downtown Truckee.

Room Tip: See the website.

My husband, myself and 21 year old daughter stayed here for four nights. Mary and Tino are the most cordial owners of any B & B we've ever stayed at. Mary made the
greatest breakfasts and we took the opportunity of take a sunset cruise on Donner
Lake. We brought two friends along and Mary, Tino, my family and friends all had a
wonderful time. Our friends and we are thinking of returning for a week to enjoy beautiful
Donner Lake and Tahoe as well as Donner Lake Inn and the hospitality provided by
Mary and Tino. This is a great place to stay if you are in the Tahoe/Donner area.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Inn in the "Sanford Court" room. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile. Mary and Tino are very warm and accommodating innkeepers. The room was quiet, clean and cozy and the breakfast was spectacular. Though I have no other B&B experience to compare it to, I am almost afraid to try another elsewhere in fear of disappointment. The Inn is easy to find and very close to downtown. It’s within walking distance to Donner Lake and many restaurants. I would definitely stay again and again.

My husband, 3 year old son, and I had a memorable stay at the Donner Lake Inn over the Easter weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted so warmly from Mary, she offered us drinks and snacks right away and really succeeded in getting my family to unwind in her home! After chatting with Mary that first night, my husband and I returned to our room feeling like we've known Mary for years, like she was part of our family!
We stayed in the Kensington Room, which was cozy, especially liked the gas fireplace in the room.
Breakfast was delicious! Pancakes from scratch, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, it was all good.
The location was great, easy Hwy 80 access, and very close to downtown Truckee.
Somehow the Easter bunny managed to find us at Donner Lake Inn, the eggs were waiting to be found at 7:30 in the morning! Our son was so delighted-he has not stopped talking about his "hunt"! (Thanks, Mary)
We were so pleased with our stay, we can't wait to go back and create new family memories-the Donner Lake Inn will be included as part of our annual snow trip tradition!
