We rented a room in the Beachside Inn for 5 nights because it was close to a family reunion we were attending. The Inn is right on the water with spectacular views of the lake but it is also right behind their Beacon Bar. Both items bring people from all over the area for the nice beach and for the... More

Wow!!!! We rented the Richardson House for the Holiday weekend in May from Friday to Monday. A beautiful drive up from Sacramento. It started raining on our way up so we were a little discouraged that it would take away from our trip. We were so amazed when we walked into the house!!! It was beautiful!!!! Fully stocked from top... More

We had the delightful experience of renting most of the cabins for our daughter's wedding that we celebrated at Valhalla, next door to Camp Richardson. We personally rented the Studebaker Cabin which was directly on the shore of Lake Tahoe. The cabins range from quaint to comfortable and are classic old fashioned housekeeping cabins from years past. They are not... More

A nice little gem off Highway 89. The cabins are rustic on the outside, I hope they never paint them or modernize the exterior look. They are well furnished inside, and actually very comfortable. The kitchens are furnished adequately. No TV, internet, or phone, so once you get over all that, it is very relaxing. The lake is steps away... More

If you want some quiet time. Either the historic hotel, the beachside inn or the cabins, here is all about peace and quiet. Lovely place to spend it quietly on winter in front of the big stone place at the hotel or party and lay in the sun on summer by the beach and some drinks and food at the... More

We stayed in The Studebaker cottage, and it was awesome. This was a great place to stay adjacent to Valhalla the wedding venue. We'd recommend this place to anybody that's wants a stunning location on the Lake!

This camp is nicely nestled in behind the trees on the beach. The beach and water is a tad crowded but there is a ton to do. We opted for the booze cruise which, imo, wasn't even close to worth the money. We paid $49/person and got a 2 hour ride around the lake where we couldn't even stop. We... More

Nice place still want to try it in the summer and do some snow shoeing . I went in the summer and stayed in a summer cabin, if staying in the summer I recommend the Marmon cabin but it is only available in the summer

My husband and I had made reservations to stay at the Beachside Inn at Camp Richardson. However, there has been a recent, large, still largely uncontrolled forest fire that is spreading in the direction of Lake Tahoe. Smoke is filling the air in three counties and it is expected to take weeks to get the fire under control. As a... More
