Found this lodge while driving through the Tahoe area late in the afternoon. Almost missed it from the road. As we didn't have reservations (and therefore no email with instructions), Aaron showed us a room (2nd floor, 2 queens, kitchen) and we stayed for 2 nights. The room was great, clean, and newly re-done. The bathroom was equally as nice.... More

My husband and I had to run up to Tahoe for a last-minute meeting and wanted to stay close to friends in Homewood. We'd heard that Obexer's had taken over this lodge and done extensive renovations so decided to check it out. We reserved Room 1 - a spacious King on the first floor. It was lovely, modern, with a...

For starters, don't expect a hotel setting. The lodge is 6 rooms in a cabin, 3 downstairs with access from the porch, 3 upstairs with access from a locked door leading into a hallway. You check yourself in with a key that is in a lockbox on the porch. It's quaint. Pros: The room that we were in was spacious,... More

We recently stayed at the Lodge at Obexer's and had a wonderful experience. The Lodge is very cozy and cabin-like, but with a modern feel. It's in a beautiful location, just across the street from the lake. The room was very comfortable, with modern amenities and luxury bedding. The staff was very warm and accommodating. We will definitely stay here... More

The room was delightfully comfortable with great linens, large screen TV, kitchenette, and bathroom with large rain shower head. All amenities were thoughtfully provided, and replenished upon request. Aaron took especially good care of us and was very helpful in... More

We had a clean, cozy room with lovely soft sheets and towels. The nearness of both Homewood ski resort and the West Shore Cafe and Inn was an added bonus. The property manager was very responsive (we had a light burn out) and all communication was efficient and professional. We will go again for sure! Don't look for any fancy... More
