Just as good 2nd time around

5 on November 30, 2015

The Donner Lake Inn is an excellent B & B with good access to Donner Lake and Truckee CA. Paul and Mindy are exceptional hosts with lots of personality and lots of info about the area including restaurants, drives, hikes and other local activity. The B & B and the rooms are well maintained. They have quality beds, linens, towels, robes etc. There is a newer hot tub on the property for viewing of the stars, relaxing, etc. An afternoon snack with drinks is provided and early coffee is also available. Paul and Mindy seem to know what their guests will want and they are very accommodating. The breakfast was fantastic and on the morning that we were there it was homemade with red, white and blue accents since it was Veterans Day-they are very appreciative of Veterans. The breakfast was communal and provided an interesting and informative conversation. This is our second time at the Donner Lake Inn and the first time was excellent and it has only gotten better!

About the innkeepers

Paul was born in England and emigrated with his family to California at an early age. Mindy was born in Southern California. We both spent time in the Truckee-Tahoe areas in our younger years. Following teaching careers in Las Vegas, the opportunity of owning a B & B and returning to the forest with year round activities was a life long dream that came true in 2012. Stay with us and you will see our passion for the area and we will provide a lifetime memory.
