We had a very nice experience at this Cottage. There are a series of duplexes within the property. We stayed in the Hunter's room - bed very comfy and warm with good water pressure. Walking distance to lake and restaurants.

I've stayed here on three separate occasions -- twice with just husband and once with two teen daughters. We are never disappointed in the rooms. Each cabin is thoughtfully and uniquely decorated. We can recommend the wild game cabin and forest cabin. (I don't have the names quite right). Additionally, the afternoon treats AND morning breakfast on par with the... More

The Cottage Inn is the best of the best in Tahoe, not because it is the fanciest but because of the wonderful people who work there. Angela was very friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome . She went out of her way to make sure we had a great time and enjoyed ourselves. We had the pleasure to meet... More

Very friendly and welcoming conversations with the owner Susanne and her employees -... More

I found this Inn when looking for accomodations for 4 of us close to Squaw Valley as my husband and son wanted to ski there. We loved the Cottage Inn! I booked two cabins right next to each other since there were 4 of us, we got Cozy Corner and the Fishing one (forgot the exact name, every cabin has... More

The architecture of these quaint buildings is captivating, unlike any we've seen. In the center of the compound is a large grassy area with seating, where we enjoyed the afternoon sun while taking pictures and enjoying some wine with our Florida cousins. Breakfast in the small Lodge building was great. We were told that many regulars enjoy 'cabin hopping', where... More

As we arrived after a long drive at the Cottage Inn we were made very welcome by Susi. The room we got was exceptionally: our small cottage was the skier's resort, which was great. Especially the fireplace made a very cosy atmosphere. The whole resort is very nice with attention to detail. The private beach is a 3 minutes walk... More

We love the Cottage Inn for it's rustic and comfortable cabins. They all have updated, modern baths and fireplaces. The breakfasts are substantial, yummy and made on site by the owner and staff. The evening wine and snack time is a great opportunity to meet and chat with people from all over. This is the only place we stay when... More

Spent one night here while attending Octoberfest at Richardson's Camp. Great location for walks and to see the lake. Room was okay. Staff very friendly. Nice breakfast, afternoon wine and food. Cost a bit up there. Each cottage room has its own layout - best to check in advance to be sure it meets your needs.
