“A little piece of heaven for you and your 4-legged friend(s)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

If you have a dog and want to visit Lake Tahoe there really is no better place than "Holly's Place"- a little piece of heaven for you and your 4-legged friend(s). Holly and Karen are the most incredible hosts, they go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and memorable. I am a regular visitor to Holly's place with my puppy Louis- I love it as we both get a wonderful vacation- Louis, with all the other dogs and me, with the serenity that Holly's place offers. Recommend a million times over- you won't go wrong here!

Room Tip: Holly's place has a range of options- The Tischer is wonderful if you are travelling solo, or th...

My husband and I needed to get away for the weekend after suffering a loss in the family. My one stipulation was that I wanted to bring our dog. We found Holly's Place through Dogfriendly.com. It was a perfect oasis for us and a fantastic place to get away and bring your canine best bud. The inninkeepers were so accommodating and all about personal service. Wenloved how we could let our 5 month old puppy out the front door and not have to worry about her... And she had plenty of friends to play with. We'll definitely be back and next time bring the kids!

I found this place when looking for dog-friendly accomodations in Lake Tahoe. It is a sweet little place, great for when traveling with dogs, but it does seem like there are some money issues here. A previous reviewer mentioned all the little "don't do this and that" signs posted about the place and they ARE a little annoying, espec. when you've paid a fairly steep price for a room (or in our case, a cabin). The cabin was clean and, although quite tiny, very comfortable with a loft for our 11 year old which definitely kept her from being underfoot. But, it was about the dog, and this is the PERFECT place if you are traveling with a dog. The grounds are completely fenced in. Upon waking in the morning you simply open the door and let the dog out, just like as if you were at home! There is a little doggy pond for the dogs to play/wade in, and plenty of trees to sniff around. One night we decided to eat out at a restaurant and, after alerting Holly that we were leaving, we just left the dog out on the grounds. He didn't seem to mind and Holly seemed to keep an eye on him and even tried to engage him at one point. The peace of mind we got leaving him was very valuable. Holly and her partner seem to be very nice people and were pleasant to deal with. I would definitely stay here again if traveling with the dog, but i'm not so sure I would stay here if not with a dog mainly because for the price I imagine I could find something more luxurious. All in all a good stay!

we assumed we were booking a cabin since the only images shown and advertised on their website were CABINS!!!!!!....turned out we were in the "suite".....one room with no windows, a non-locking sliding glass door without a screen was the only option for ventilation which allowed the mosquitoes to feast on us....the VCR/DVD player was in the dresser drawer and we were told to set it up ourselves if we wanted to use it.... no Wi-Fi, no hairdryer, no soap in the shower....the kitchenette was a little vibrating refrigerator, toaster oven and a coffeemaker inches from the bed....the dog did have a great time and the other guests staying in cabins seemed happy with their accommodations but our "suite" was HORRID!!!!!!!

What a find! We needed a last minute place to stay with our Mini Aussie. I searched dog friendly lodging on Yelp and Holly's place came up. Don't go by the directions on Yelp because you'll never find it.
Holly was warm, friendly and very accommodating. It is a totally fenced and safe compound for your dog. Dusty romper and played in the snow with all the other doggy vacationers and had a blast.
They also have a big lodge house for everyone to share called "The Rainbow Room" which is very cool.
This is definitely a place we will return to again and again!!!
Thanks Holly!

My husband and I visit Lake Tahoe several times a year and stay in one of the cabins at Holly's Place as often as they have availability. Our dog is treated like royalty and it is super convenient to have a fenced-in area where visiting dogs can play. Holly has managed the property for more than 20 years and knows most of her returning guests by name - a rare quality in today's world. She and her team maintain the cabins well and are almost always on site should you need local advice, extra towels or the snow shoveled around your car. During a recent power outage in Tahoe, Holly's team had candles, ensured our cabin had heat and kindly offered us dinner in the community room at Holly's Place. With so many options in Tahoe as to where one can stay, we find ourselves returning to Holly's as we always feel well cared for. As an example, when we approached Holly for recommendations on where to rent snowshoes, she handed me and my husband each a pair in the correct sizes and did not charge us for the rental. She just asked that we return the equipment at the conclusion of our stay - amazing! Sometimes my husband and I rent a small cabin with our dog and, during our last stay, we shared a cabin with two other families with children. We feel very fortunate that we found Holly's as they have different-sized cabins to meet the needs of couples to large families. While there may be less expensive options in Tahoe, the location near the base of Heavenly and the casinos can't be beat - especially considering the high level of service and comfort we consistently receive. We'll be returning to Holly's again soon!
