The location was perfect for a quiet, out-of-the-way vacation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Great access to sightseeing and outdoor activities in the Lake Tahoe and Donner Pass areas. It had a cabin-in-the woods feel, but the room was modern and very clean, fresh inside. Even in the cold of winter, the fireplace warmed up the room quickly. Mindy makes...

The highlight was the service. Mindy served a fantastic breakfast and catered to our vegetarian needs. She also provided great information to flesh out our outline of a plan. We missed snack time, as we came back from adventuring a bit late, but Mindy packed us some delicious pumpkin bread to go, which was really thoughtful. The room we stayed...

The actual rooms are fine, but nothing special. They are comfortable and decorated in mountain/lake/skiing decorations. Comforters look a little too used, but they are definitely clean and I slept well. The owners are what make the difference here. They are so nice, so helpful, and know when you want company and when you don't. They are wonderful! The welcome...

Thank you for your review as we take these seriously. Within the last 4 months we replaced all our comforters with new down alternative ones, so are unsure about them looking used, but are pleased that you found them clean and slept well.

Rustic appointments in the guest rooms, each with a different woodsy theme. Fire places, TV service and bottled water in each room make this cozy B & B comfortable for all seasons. Wonderful breakfast served at 8am for guests to start their day out right.

We stayed at the B&B for three nights and had a wonderful experience. Our hosts, Mindy and Paul were gracious and Mindy prepared the best breakfasts!

We loved this place so very much. Paul and Mindy make you feel so welcome, see to every little detail, and fix a fabulous breakfast!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Donner Lake Inn. The room was comfortable, parking was easy, welcome was warm, and breakfast was delicious. This is a B&B that gets it right. We always appreciate it when the hosts are available and can share their knowledge of the area with us. Mindy and Paul exceeded all expectations.

Donner Lake Inn is easy to get to, yet once you're there you'll feel as though you've truly gotten away from it all. Sequestered in a wooded area and situated next to a babbling brook, not merely the grounds but also the sounds are serene and peaceful. It feels as though you've wandered into a storybook. And speaking of books,...
