We wound up here by default; the owners of the inn we reserved at, retired and they referred us here. What a find! We knew we would be there well after check-in time, so we called and they were very pleasant. Upon arrival, the staff was just as pleasant and what a surprise to walk in and find the cutest... More

The owners over the past few years have made the place delightfully different. Small cute cabins surrounded by wildflowers. Each cabin has a different motif.Short walk to beach. Walk to two good restaurants and a great new deli. European breakfast served in main lodge. South of Tahoe City on the West Shore. Very unique.

I have been coming to the Cottage Inn for many years now. It is almost like coming home. Susie and staff are the best! Food is great, location is great. What can I say, this is the best! I listen to the verbal comments from foreign travelers. They wish they lived in CA so they can come here more often.... More

This place is family owned business so you can expect very friendly and warmth services. They treat you like their guest staying in their house. When I visit Lake Tahoe, I really do expect a very peaceful place which this place can meet my expectation. I stayed at Romantic Hideaway room which it is very beautiful and the bed is... More

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
