We stayed here for Christmas and had an amazing experience. They have a very good breakfast, snacks all day long, happy hour and s'mores-making every night. The owners are amazing and property is super kid friendly. I totally love it and would def stay there next time. :)

5 stars, not in terms of lodging luxury, but the whole package. Our first bnb as we have children (tweens) and they are normally not welcome in these places. We were worried all the great reviews were pet owners loving the fact that their beloved dogs were allowed to stay! But not so. This place is a gem. We arrived... More

I booked this lodge for my husband's birthday weekend. We also brought our 8 year old and dog, so the owner, David, set us up with the largest room they had. When we checked into our room, Christine the other owner and wife of David, made a special birthday cake and had it set upon a cake pedestal along with... More

This was the second time we stayed here (my sister, her dog, and I). This time we were in the Bears Den, a giant room with two beds and ADA-compliant bathroom (roomy!). Fireside Ldoge costs a little more than average, but it's definitely way above average. Location can't be beat if you bring your dog. Fireside is just moments away... More

Can't recommend highly enough. Stayed in this quirky place for 2 nights in August. Very welcoming owners, fun themed rooms very comfortable, excellent breakfast in cozy dining room, wine and cheese in the evenings, honesty bar (inc. draught IPA), schmors (sic) around the fire pit in the evening with other guests. Owners and lots of guests have dogs but we... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at the Fireside Lodge with our adult son and "English Cream" retriever. The staff couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. All staff members have lived in the area for years, so they were able to answer questions regarding sightseeing and dining establishments with pinpoint accuracy. The room decor is charming. The...

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.

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
