Labor Day Weekend Stay

5 on September 08, 2016

Very enjoyable stay. It was a busy weekend with tight itineraries and the host were so accommodating! Knowing we were going to miss breakfast two of the three mornings due to our schedule they were so quick to provide a healthy alternative (packed to go)! Completely unexpected and over the top! The attention to detail and their genuine care for making your stay one of the best is very obvious! The area speaks for itself with the beautiful views and peaceful surroundings. I'm so very glad we have had the privilege to meet Mindy and Paul. Spectacular hosts for sure!


Wonderful Treasure on Donner Lake

5 on August 22, 2016

Paul and Mindy are wonderful hosts, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beds were extremely comfortable and the food was incredible. Mindy even went out of her way to find delicious gluten free muffins for one of our family members who has a diet restriction. This B&B is a true gem, and we will definitely be back soon!


Excellent B & B

5 on November 14, 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 morning 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.
