Rustic, old school Tahoe inn. The views from our room were spectacular and based on the layout I believe that would be true for all of the different rooms. The inn keeper is charming, a great wind surfer and a dog lover. Your dog is welcome here. We had a great time during our stay.

Holiday House is my paradise on Lake Tahoe! Who needs the Ritz when Holiday House beats them hands down. My wife and I have stayed at numerous five star resorts all over the United States and the World but none of these compare to the personalized experience and cozy environment nor the vistas of the lake and mountains offered here....

If you are looking for a unique, friendly, cozy, relaxing place to stay with absolutely the best views of Lake Tahoe, then Holiday House is the place for you. There are only six units here so the privacy is unbeatable. Each unit, plus the large deck area, has incredible views of the lake and the mountains. Instead of just a... More

The reviewers who mentioned the awesome view of the lake were spot on. The innkeeper could not be sweeter. The dated rooms were clean, but the exterior of the inn is in need of much work. If we had simply walked up without a reservation, we probably would not have stayed. I find it very difficult to rate this inn... More

I'm balancing gorgeous scenery with our room. View is simply beautiful, peaceful, and perfectly situated. The rooms, however, were dated (the bad kind - not charming retro), and dirty. What appeared to be mouse waste in kitchen drawer and on bathroom floor. Bed was not uncomfortable, but frame dirty/dusty. I understand: 1. People are stomping in and out all the... More

What a hidden gem! We stayed here last week for four days and what a great experience. The view from the deck cannot be beat. The rooms are rustic and have a cabin feel, if you are expecting the Ritz, you will need to go elsewhere. There was plenty of room for everyone and the room was very clean. you... More

Pros: It's right on the water, and the vibe is laid back. The owner is a super-friendly nice lady, and it's a family-run business. I like that. Dog friendly, and she also offers paddle board lessons. They have a floating pier you can swim out to and enjoy. It's a small place (8 rooms total). You can smoke. Cons: It's... More
