Just needed a place for a quick unwind & this place was a wonderful experience. Dog friendly was important & nowhere we have traveled was this done as well as at the Fireside Lodge. Well manored dogs are welcomed by resident labs, Sandy & Kona. Dogs are allowed throughout the property & provided with nice amenities from treats & blankets... More

We were just delighted with our stay at the Fireside Lodge. Wonderful people from the get go. Everything went seamlessly and we enjoyed our time there for our 46th Wedding Anniversary. Would we go again? Absolutely. Friendly atmosphere and we were made to feel right at home. We highly recommend you stay there for your next trip to South Lake... More

My wife and I had an amazing 2 night getaway at this terrific lodge. The owners are totally cool and couldn't be nicer. I got so stuffed at the waffle bar in the mornings and my wife made sure we were back in time for the free wine and cheese happy hour both nights. They gave us great suggestions for... More

This is the premiere place to stay in South Lake Tahoe. The staff and owners are amazing, and really go above and beyond to take care of their guests. For example, if you are celebrating an anniversary or a birthday, they make sure to treat you to something special. The owners also try to make sure that every guest is... More

I went with a friend and her two teenage boys and maybe this place is better if you are with a man. It was darling but the entire time we were there the owner was a control freak. There were strict hours and rules and you got admonished for slight infractions. (we left plates by the firepit!) And the owner... More

These people were nearly thrown off the property. These women showed up clearly intoxicated and were a problem from the beginning. They were here for just one night and upset the whole place. In 9 years we have never had people like this. They drank way too much and then went out to the fire pit and started up with... More

Very welcoming owners, relaxed atmosphere. It felt like we were long-lost family! Very clean, comfortable and cozy. High attention to detail. So pet friendly they leave a packet of dog treats in the room. Great free extras such as the cheese and wine and marshmellow roasting. Great value. We cannot fault this B&B.

We opted to stay here rather than a hotel as Lake Tahoe is all about its incredible natural beauty, one of the most scenic populated places on the planet. It is ideally-located to the west of town just north of U.S. 50 as it heads to the west toward Sacramento and the western leg of the road that circumvents this... More

My husband and I just returned from an anniversary trip and we cannot make enough positive comments about this Tahoe gem! First and foremost, Bryan, the manager, is a delight. He is friendly, welcoming, helpful, and so positive. The owners are also so personable! They truly want you to have a great time. We really enjoyed talking with them. We... More

My family stayed at the Fireside Lodge for 4 nights in late June and really enjoyed it. It was like being welcomed into someone's home. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable and they kept the room's refrigerator stocked with bottled water for no extra charge. The vintage arcade, free access to the bikes and nightly s'mores were quite the... More

Christine and David made our family weekend stay a true delight! Their attention to the details makes all the difference! My 6 year old grandson loved roasting marshmallows over the fire-pit and riding one of the bicycles down to the lake. The adults enjoyed the great breakfast choices, including the waffle makers with all the fixings, and the wine and... More
