My boyfriend and I stayed here recently for a skiing trip. It was a great time! The first day we got there, the DVD player in our room (Hunter's Hideout) wasn't working and the staff were so kind and helpful and moved us over one room to the Stagecoach Stop. The room had a nice fireplace and toiletries in the... More

We looked hard to find a B & B/small hotel that would be quiet and private on Lake Tahoe where it can be too busy and touristy most seasons for our taste. We definitely found this experience at this small comfortable inn when we visited in early November just after the first snowfall. The rooms are warm and cozy with... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend, and it is a very cute property. The rooms are nice, clean, if a little bit on the small side. It's fine for two people though. There is very close access to the beach - literally a two minute walk. Great place to go when the weather is warmer. It was nice... More

Cottage Inn is the perfect place to have a mini getaway. We stayed in a cottage for two during the winter time where the property was covered in snow. I would have to say that the winter time is the best time to book a trip out to Tahoe City. We stayed in the Rustic Retreat Cottage, and it was... More

This review is long overdue, I left a hurried one on booking.com after our stay, but feel the need to show thanks to Susi for our lovely stay at the Cottage Inn! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay here. We booked pretty last minute due to my grandparents own house at Tahoe sadly being too full of family... More

These people have their game on at the Cottage in. Read all the reviews before I posted and for the life of me can't understand why anyone would not be happy staying there. This is a fantastic place to stay and I am VERY picky about where I stay on vacation. No it's not cheap but yes it was worth... More

We visited this haven after a vrey busy couple of weeks touring the high spots of western USA and it provided us with the chance to recharge our batteries ready for the final push home. We were a little later arriving than we should have been, but fortunately someone was still around to welcome us in and point us in... More

We had a lovely stay in the Cottage Time room, especially the (electric thermostat) fire place between the living room area and the bedroom gave it a very romantic and warm look&feel. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast really tasty! They even provide wine, cheese and some snacks in the late after noon, which made me very happy... More

Sue the owner was very helpful and friendly. The service was great. The beach was within 2 min. walking distance. The beach is private and well maintained. We stayed in two different room both were unique. The two person tub in both of the rooms was great. Very quite and relaxing location. We will definitely stay there again.
