Our first stay at this wonderful place! Great room, great location, excellent breakfast. Sitting on the lawn right beside the water, beautiful! There's even a resident bunny that came out to visit every morning and evening. Couldn't have been better.

Thank you for your kind words. The first picture of our resident wild bunnies. The wild life at Tahoe is plentiful and any visitor is bound to see something special. Come again soon. More

Neat room, jacuzzi tub, refrig. snacks. Exceptional breakfasts, wine and hors d'oeuvres. Friendly people with access to all the restaurants for late reservations. Great location right on the lake and beach.

We work very hard at the Shore House to make our rooms as comfortable as possible. It's very rewarding when our guests appreciate what we've done. Especially, when the guests are world travelled and really know what they are talking about. Thank you Palmer and Susan, see you in September! More

We have stayed at the Shorehouse during August each of the last 4 years. Sitting on their beautiful lawn watching and listening to the waves of Lake Tahoe is one of our all-time favorite "happy places". We tried kayaking, and will aim for a longer trip next year. We will be back! Kevin and Linda

We just returned from another great stay at the Shore House. We have been going to Tahoe each August for the past 10 or so years, and after choosing Shore House from the Select Registry book the first year we have never considered staying anywhere else. Shore House is perfectly located on the North Shore, the rooms have a great... More

The Shore House at Lake Tahoe is absolutely a wonderful place to spend a summer week. It is relaxing, provides magnificent lake and mountain views and the morning and evening servings are delicious. The owner, Marty, could not be more hospitable and accommodating - he will entice you with his historic knowledge of the lake and see to your every... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the honeymoon cottage and loved every minute. The cottage was comfortable and beautiful. We loved the view from our room and the double whirlpool tub! Fantastic. The food was delicious and staff incredibly knowledgable and welcoming. The treats in the afternoon were a delight. It was a wonderful location, right on the lake. We... More

This inn has a great location on Lake Tahoe. The hospitality was excellent. Innkeeper Marty was extremely helpful in planning your stay along the shore of Lake Tahoe. His wine and appetizers are something you don't want to miss. He caters to all your needs out in his lovely backyard along the shore of Lake Tahoe. The next day Marty... More

We recently stayed at the Shore House for 6 nights and it was magnificent! Marty thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable and relaxing, from kayaks to take out on the lake to comfortable lounge chairs in the garden for reading or just watching activities on the lake. He also made several dinner reservations for us at our... More

This was the first stop on our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights and The Shore House knocked it out of the park. Our innkeeper, Marty, was spectacular and inviting. He was social, informative, entertaining, and welcoming. He gave us great advice on hikes, attractions, activities, and "can't miss" dining in the area. The Shore House provides kayaks, canoes, stand up... More

Not sure why we hadn't returned sooner. Lovely spot on the lake and we enjoyed it all very much. We will be back for longer next time. Breakfast and appetizers in the evening are wothy. Having everything you need there to go to the lake is nice too. The little flashlight in the room was just what we needed for... More
