My family visited in the summer. This place is absolutely fantastic! I was surprised at how relatively inexpensive it was! The cottages are very cozy, in a good way! I was surprised and impressed at what was provided (a full kitchen stocked with utensils and serving ware, stove, microwave, sink, toaster, an electric fireplace, tv with VCR and free VHS... More

We have stayed at these cabins as a couple and also with groups. Just across the street from the Lake. Options with kitchens or not! Porches with Benicia Iron furniture. The folks who host this property could not be more kind. Have a look next time you are in the area - and book a stay next time you do... More

Very friendly staff on last minute check in when first accommodation did not work out. Had small room with kitchenette. Bathroom was small and room was tight, but very cute, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was very yummy. Do it yourself waffles, eggs, sausage, juice, muffins. Can hear road noise. Did not stay long enough to enjoy amenities. Access to public... More

I have stayed at a few places that made you feel comfortable...this goes beyond that! Everyone says, "welcome" and "let us know if you need anything". The staff at Rustic Cottages REALLY means it. Breakfast was more than we expected, sweat treats were a hit with the kids, help with directions etc. were right on. The cabin was neat and... More

We enjoyed staying here. Yes, the rooms closest to the busy road was noisy, but still nice. The breakfast was outstanding, more than enough to eat, waffles, eggs, ham, sausages, muffins, orange juice, coffee, cereals, what a wonderful way to start the day. My husband loves the brownies and lemonade that were on the porch when we checked in. We... More

We immediately felt comfortable and at home. The cabins are close together, but everyone was very respectful. Having a plate of brownies at our disposal 24/7 was a nice surprise. The rooms have full kitchens and the beds were very comfortable.

It's always tough to find a place to stay that lets you bring your animals especially in choice locations like Lake Tahoe. Rustic Cottages is one of those places. The cottages are charming and well equipped. The management is very friendly and the rate includes a very nice breakfast. We really enjoy this property. Our Great Dane Chesapeake Retriever mix...

I have been a regular for years. I love the different cabins and themes and of course, the daily warm fresh brownies or chocolate chip cookies. I enjoy the Belgium Waffle Breakfast with true maple syrup in the morning. The property is gorgeous and the best part, dog friendly. My dogs love rustic cottages. Husband and wife own and operate...

Rustic Cottages has quickly become one of our favorite weekend getaways. The cabins are historic, comfortable and cozy. Every morning a waffle breakfast is served in the lodge, and the hospitality of the owners and the staff helps make our stay a pleasant one. We discovered Rustic Cottages the year before last, and just last weekend was our 6th visit.... More
