We were actually headed to the Tahoma Lodge, but had to stay for a night here, because we couldn't get a room there for the night. The Tamarack is a clean place, and a decent place for a night's sleep. It is close to the restaurants and shops near the north lake blvd.

The Tamarack Lodge was a great place to stay, great location and family run. The sweet family that owns this lodge were truly accommodating during our stay, by upgrading us to the sweet cottage for a great value, building fires for us, making reservations for dinner and just generally making our stay comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

I don't know what the previous people were thinking when they gave this place more than a 1 star rating. The building is something out of a horror show, you walk up to check in and there are kids toys spread all over the side walk, office is part of someone's kitchen where the owners were eating dinner. And talk... More

I've already seen this exact review elsewhere on the internet, so like the reviewer, I'll cut and paste. The Tamarack Lodge is neither “disgusting” nor “nasty”. Nothing is “lurking in the dark”. It is an older place, and since family once again took over management four years ago, we've been making steady improvements. Yes, our carpet has some stains and... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in late July. It's about a mile outside of Tahoe City. You have to cross a highway (not comfortable but it can be done) to get to a bike path which runs for miles on both directions, a nice walk into Tahoe City. The accommodations are simple and on the older side. There are... More

Been going to Tahoe since I was born and stayed in a variety of motels, lodges, and hotels. For the price, the Tamarack Lodge was by far the most enjoyable stay. The family who ran the lodge was polite and friendly. I had booked a "poker" room for my girlfriend and I, but when we checked in, we were offered... More

The very rude lady at Mother Nature's Inn gave away our room and was extremely unhelpful about it. Thankfully the very nice lady here was extremely helpful. We stayed in a private cabin with our own porch. Wonderful woods setting and very clean room.

I stayed here for one night as part of a trip round California. I checked in slightly early but was pleasantly surprised to be given one on the cabins as the room I'd booked wasn't ready. This was a really nice touch especially as it was the first night of my trip. Located about a mile from Tahoe City it... More

This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe, and we loved it! The stay at Tamarack Lodge was very enjoyable. The owners are very pleasant and made sure we had a good stay. Their advice about things to do at Tahoe was invaluable. Although there is no lake view, the rooms are well-equipped with a nice kitchenette. We will definitively... More

Spent weekend here as a off the beaten path place to get away. Family owned. Lodge has a typical motel type rooms, a family cabin and several smaller "cardroom" cabins. The place is located on the north shore of Lake Tahoe about half way from the Nevada stateline and Squaw Valley. No Lake View. Northshore casno are about twenty minutes... More

I just got back last night from Lake Tahoe. This was our first visit there. I truly enjoyed the service at the Tamarack Lodge, the room was very clean, I did not have a problem with the water, (maybe because it is summertime). The room had everything I needed. The kitchennette had pots and pans, cups, plates and glasses, a... More
