This is a house where the owners live there and rent out 3 rooms. My friend and I had the Hideaway downstairs bedroom (next to the owner's bedroom). The home is clean, compact and comfortable. Quarters are snug as the owners have 2 computer workstations in the living area. We were welcomed to use the kitchen, dishes and living area......BUT... More

Even though this is listed as a "guesthouse," I think it's important to make a note that it could not be more literal: you really are a guest in Ann and Herman's house. The common spaces on the main floor also have their personal computers and desks where they do some work, and they sleep in a room in the... More

I spent two nights with Ann and Herman at the beginning of May 2013. They were both very welcoming and Ann couldn't have been nicer or more patient helping me find a really nice restaurant for a special birthday celebration at a time when many places were closed. Their place is a great set-up for singles or a couple: the... More

We stayed with Anne and Herman in February 2012 while on a skiing trip to Squaw Valley. They are wonderful hosts and their property is perfect for a trouble free relaxing break in the mountains. Anne looked after our every need and was able to offer recommendations for everything from local restaraunts to gyms. She is very connected in the... More

My wife and I spent three wonderful evenings with Ann and Herman (Poole's Guesthouse) last month (AUG '12) and I couldn't have been more pleased. Though we live in Texas, we find ourselves at Lake Tahoe about thrice yearly, not having found a better place to vacation. Normally, we don't pay for lodging because the casinos are happy to comp...

In August 2012 we stayed there for two nights and we can really recommend Pooles Guesthouse! As we arrived we were cordially received by Ann and Herman and felt like old friends. We had a wonderful room with a great panoramic view and a really comfortable bed. We were invited to spent the evening together at Graham´s Restaurant and we... More

We have a small inn in Washington and look for small, intimate lodgings to stay at. Poole's Guesthouse was just what we hoped it would be. Ann and Herman were wonderful hosts. From the moment we walked in the door, they treated us like old friends that were visiting them. It is a unique style of lodging. Ann says B&B's... More

I had a wonderful stay at Poole's Guesthouse and I'll definitely be back. First off, Ann and Herman are lovely people--so friendly and clearly want guests to be comfortable and happy. Ann goes the extra mile for guests- two examples: she drove another guest who didn't have a car to a nearby grocery store to pick up grocery items for... More

Recently we went down for a ski trip. Great location and easy to get to the hill, restaurants and lake. An assortment of coffee, tea and hot chocolate was pleasant to wake up to. The kitchen was well laid out to make meals with a amazing stove and the bedrooms were private and warm and offered spectacular views. The setting... More
