This was our first visit to Lake Tahoe, and we were just knocked out by the location, hosts and standard of Chaney House. Our hosts, Lori and Gary could not have been better. Gary even sent me details of scenic routes to Chaney House from Mariposa. The wine and nibbles in the evening were a nice touch, especially as our... More

We've been to the Chaney House 3 times over the last several years and enjoy it a little more with each visit. Built in the style of the Hellman-Ehrman mansion at Sugar Pine point, the house itself is something to behold. Add to that hosts that truly care and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable, a private... More

Possibly the best location and property at Tahoe. Gorgeous home with a great host. Pier and beach. Words can't describe this home, Possibly the greatest stone home at the lake. The Hoast has lived there for over 40 years.

We had not stayed in a B&B that had the rooms in the main house & thankfully Gary & Lori were there to help us through the stay. They make the stay wonderful. We stayed in Russels Suite & the only way up is on a spiral stairwell. Learned that while easy to go up & down, it is not... More

My family was visiting my brother in Clayton, CA and took a side trip to Lake Tahoe. I came upon Chaney House in my Fodor's Northern CA Guidebook. The Chaney House is better than the pictures reflect and surpassed all my expectations. The Chaney House is a quaint B&B full of charm both the home and the homeowners, Gary and... More

Just a thank you to Gary for helping us out with our travel situation. You made a disappointing week less frustrating for us. We will be out to visit you sometime in the future. Thanks again for all your help and understanding.

Love the Chaney house-everything about it. Old Tahoe, the private pier, proximity to good restaurants, the relaxing ambience that Gary and Laurie create. Have been before, just got back again, and will book in the near future. Enough said!!!

What a treat to drive through stone pillars beneath towering pines overlooking the beauty of Lake Tahoe! The high wooden beams of the 1920s-era living room beckoned us with its warmth. Our room was the Master Suite - lots of space, quiet, private, upstairs, comfortable king-sized bed, charming furnishings, roomy closet and private bathroom. One joy was waking in the... More

Staying at The. Chaney House for four days was a real treat. The accomodations are wonderful and the breakfasts cooked by Laurie Chaney are absolutely gourmet quality. The house is picturesquely located on the shore of Lake Tahoe. I have traveled extensively and am very familiar with Tahoe including boating all over the lake. This is place for an old... More
