We had a one magical experience at Sunnyside! Beautiful room with a fireplace and a grand deck overlooking the lake, just perfect. Tahoe's western shore is so lovely with bike paths winding around the lake and all the way up the Truckee River to Squaw Valley. However, on another stay at the Sunnyside we brought our 3 lb Yorkie and... More

Every summer for many, many years, my family gathers on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. Our trip always includes at least one dinner at Sunnyside. Our most current dinner at Sunnyside was superb. We were shown to our table on the deck as per our request when we made reservations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was... More

Views are wonderful and the ambience very special. The deck is divided into 3 areas - bar, bar food and restaurant. We had a drink at the bar and then ate in the restaurant - both were very good. While the restaurant was a bit of a treat, the bar food menu looked good, well priced and the deck has... More

Stayed the night at Sunnyside, enjoying the deck for drinks and dinner. From check-in to check-out, the service was friendly. (Wherever do they find so many cute gals?) Three friends in a garden suite was very comfortable. Breakfast was more than sufficient. The location is perfect on the quiet west shore. I will be back!

I was here in June and the view was incredible. We went for lunch and dinner on two separate occasions in the 3 days that we stayed in Tahoe City. The food is great, the drinks are excellent, and the view is incredible. Also, the people who work here could not be friendlier!

We stayed in room 39, located at the end of the hall, with a view of the lake & a stone fireplace. The room was decorated nicely, felt big & was very clean. We loved the little deck - it was great for relaxing & looking at the lake. The hotel made us feel special by sending a bottle of... More

My wife and I stay at Sunnyside when traveling to Lake Tahoe. The lodge is located on the west shore about four miles south of Tahoe City. The lodge has that rustic vibe and best of all it is located right on the water. I recommend staying in a room on the second floor overlooking the lake. There is a... More

I've been going to sunnyside for over a decade and its consistently great. We used to live nearby but now we visit once a year. If you're looking for a nice dinner out then this is a must do. Ask to sit outside and watch the boats go by! They have a good wine list if you're a wine drinker.
