I am surprised at the multiple 5 star reviews of this place. It has a great location and is spacious, but for the price there are a number of problems with it, especially the beds which were probably the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in. The Good: -spacious and lots of bed space -pool and hot tub -dog... More

The pine cone lets you use their bikes and kayaks for no charge which s a huge plus and money saver. Robert(the owner) went out of his way to help us get... More

I usually make several trips a year up to Tahoe and almost always book at one of the casino hotels. Since I recently rescued a wonderful dog who’s become such an important member of my family, pet-friendly establishments are now a major focus in my searches for places to stay when traveling. The Pine Cone Resort in Zephyr Cove will... More

We just returned from another stay at the Pine Cone Resort and I can't wait to go back again. Everytime we return they amaze us with new amenities while maintaining their low prices. Such an excellent value. One bedroom cabin with everything you want and need including a cozy fireplace. The owner, Robert, and his staff go out of their... More

We booked this place for 3 nights after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Maybe it was just the unit they put us in, but it smelled musty, the carpet was filthy, and the bed was hard. The internet is spotty at best. This is not a hotel, it is a vacation rental. There is no one in the office after... More

This was our second stay at the Pine Cone Resort, which offers plenty of space, the comforts of home, a great location, and the ability to park right near our unit. Our 1-bedroom unit was clean and the full kitchen well stocked with all the essentials to cook meals when we wanted. I enjoyed the jacuzzi and there is also... More
