We have stayed at the Shore House Inn almost every July since 1999 for our anniversary. We have been married for 32 years and on our 25th anniversary Marty renewed our wedding vows. He did an awesome ceremony on his boat. Our daughter, son and my wife's parents were able to celebrate with us. We have stayed at many B... More

My wife and I were married at The Shore House on St. Patrick's Day 2000. With all the hustle and bustle we missed so much of the amazing ambiance and knew that we had to return. Flash forward to 2015 and we renewed our vows on the shore with Marty and Margie. Lake Tahoe is fabulous but it is enhanced... More

Marty was the perfect host. Attentive, considerate and helpful. He gave up his valentines night reservation for my new wife and me. They laid on a newly weds package. Everyday was full of treats and little surprises. Watched the sunset over the lake every evening. I want to live here!

Wow, what a great place. We stayed in the Artist room. Beautiful wood bed very comfy to plush robes to wear down to hot tub. Everyday new baked treats would be placed in are room. Our kids got us breakfast in bed, very classy the way it was delivered to us in stages. The breakfast served was gourmet everyday. The... More

Stayed one night for a last minute ski trip. Super cute property right on lake with a beautiful view. Marty was an awesome host. Everything at this B&B was detailed and clean. The cookies waiting in our room were gone within minutes, wine & apps was a great chance to meet the other guests and compare dinner plans. Room was... More

This was a return trip for us, having thoroughly enjoyed a previous stay. Shore House is that wonderful mix of the perfect location, excellent accommodations, superb food, and an outstanding innkeeper! Marty is one of the most gracious owners we have ever encountered, and he is an excellent chef! Everything is just top-notch!

We (me and my wife) been there in the winter for ski. The location is great, several resort options about 30min driving. Sunset by the hot tub is a must do everyday. We did a 1h massage at the hotel (they have a massage room) just amazing! However the highlight is the service you get at the "Shore", the owner... More

Absolute perfection. My husband and I stayed for three nights for our mini-moon, and loved every bit of our stay. Marty and Margie were wonderful! Breakfast was delicious, room was incredible, location was gorgeous. We will be back soon!

We stayed in the very cozy tree house room. Comfortable bed, snacks, wonderful breakfasts and an afternoon wine and pupu hour. We are glad we were finally able to use a trade we did for the honeymoon suite in our own B&B on Maui - Penny's Place, which like the Shorehouse, is also For Sale. Marty was very knowledgable about... More

Marty C, Owner at Shore House at Lake Tahoe, responded to this review

Thank you for the kind words. I would like to expand on the comment that the Shore House is For Sale. When you are in business, everything is always For Sale. We are looking to retire in the future, but no plans are in the works for the next year or two at least. The dilemma is that we are... More
