What could be better than a romantic cabin-style room with a deck over looking Lake Tahoe and a flickering fireplace? Nothing! We will return again and again! Sunnyside is the place to stay any time of year. It is conveniently located near ski resorts, and Tahoe City. The restaurant is fabulous -- order any appetizer with a beer apres ski,... More

We LOVE to stay in places where we do to have to drive after drinking. This fits the bill!! We have eaten here many times, but never stayed there before this past weekend. A friend was staying there with her dog and told us about it. Close to Tahoe City and fairly close to SQUAW (and the Winter Wonder-grass Festival!)... More

The lodge was just perfect for a 2 night getaway. My room was very clean and comfortable. The guest service staff were very knowledgeable about things to do in the area including a dynamite Bluegrass Festival, hiking trails, local ski conditions, etc. The complimentary breakfast was excellent in both quantity of items provided and quality. Very attentive staff! I did... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge, but we had dinner here. Wonderful food, superb service, top ranked bar with premium tequila. Steak cooked perfectly to my specs, and the supporting portions on the plate were equally as good. Hats off to Nicky and JP, thanks for the service.

I stayed here in December of 2013. It was very cold, and there was little snow at the time. The lodge was busy with visitors over the Christmas Holiday. The room was spacious and the fireplace very nice. We visited again in April of 2014 just to dine. The restaurant, and the Bar and Grill were good, but I wouldn't... More

The location of the Sunnyside was perfect. We stayed in the suit, room 31! The food at the lodge was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view from our room was SPECTACULAR!!! It was bright and sunny when we arrived. We woke up to 14 inches of snow!!! It was beautiful. I would stay there again for sure!!

... nice enough place on the lake. Beautiful views. If you've come to ski during the winter or outdoor sports during the summer, I imagine this place would be a good enough base camp. If you've come to work the next two days like I have...no so much.. Decent enough kingsize room with a partial view of the lake..there's no... More

We stayed 3 nights at Sunnyside - we could have spend all of our 5 week vacation in the U.S. at this beautiful lakefront restaurant and lodge. Sunnyside is situated on the westside of Lake Tahoe, next to a small marina with boat-rental and wateractivities. Sunnyside has a wonderfull ambiance, with a friendly and helpfull staff, nice clean rooms, two... More

Great location and beautiful scenery! We stayed in a corner room with a fireplace. The room was spacious & rustic. The fire place was big & took up the whole wall with beautiful stone work. The continental breakfast was great with a lovely (but small) sitting area next to a beautiful window that overlooks the lake. The bathroom in our... More

No Michelin Stars for this place. Have previously truly enjoyed Christmas dinner at Sunnyside but that was some time ago and this was Christmas 2014. Menu descriptions sound wonderful. Reality was not so wonderful. We brought our family of 11 folks to have what we thought would be an excellent dinner based on long ago. We will not do it... More
