“Excellent Stay, Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

My wife and I stayed here when we were in town for a wedding over Labor Day weekend. The staff was extremely friendly and worked with us to make sure we were still able to get into our room even though we were arriving very late.
The room was huge and the bed was comfy. The lobby always had snacks during the day and evening and fresh pastries and coffee in the morning. The staff even had complimentary bottles of wine. There's a very nice landscaped yard behind the rooms along with a gas fire-pit on a patio.
The one snafu we ran into was our room keys stopped working about once a day, however, the staff was extremely helpful and very quick to get us replacement keys, even if they were at their other property. After a couple days they figured out it was the batteries in the locks, so replaced all the batteries. After that, there were no more issues with the keys. They handled everything very well and now that the problem is solved, it won't pop up for anyone else.
The lake is a few blocks away, maybe a 5 minute walk. There are plenty of bike rentals nearby and you can ride the paved trail by the lake, or you can go just up the road from the Inn and mountain bike on Powerlines Trail and others in the woods.
This place has a great atmosphere, is in a great location, and well worth the stay. You won't regret it.

Deerfield Lodge is a quality place to stay. Rooms were beautiful and spacious. The location was close to casinos and beach. The lodge is small, but the rooms and service over accommodate for any luxuries the larger hotels may have. Deerfield Lodge was definitely a diamond in beautiful Lake Tahoe. Kelsey was friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to going back to stay a little longer next time.

Recently returned from wedding like several others. Had a suite that was beyond our expectations as was the sevice. I haven't been regarded this well even at top rated hotels in SF, Seattle or Portland which leaves out LA, NY, etc. Got into a bind with car breakdown plus expenses, needed to stay a couple of extra days and mgt. went out of their way to accommodate and work with us. Next time will definitely come back if space available. The couple that manage it make the difference, hopefully the owners appreciate them.

Room Tip: West end quiet but poor Wi-Fi, thankfully central area open all noc with excellent connection.

The lodge has 12 room. Curtiss are not hung up correctly. Very noise metal stairs. Every time someone walks up the stairs it echoes through out the entire lodge. There is a fire pit that is in the courtyard. People gather there drink, talk loudly an shout to friends in the rooms. Breakfast was set up one day . On the next day there were no cups, sugar, or napkins. There is no consistent time for this breakfast . Sometimes 8 , sometimes 9:30.

I just returned from a summer wedding in Tahoe where our group rented out nearly the entire lodge. The rooms were spacious and it was especially convenient that our room had separate full bathrooms. The property was quiet and comfortable (maybe we were a little loud at night, but we were only bothering our own friends in this situation). The staff was very friendly and helpful, making themselves available even off the clock to respond to any requests. Cleaning service was available, as were all kinds of delicious snacks, and even a complimentary bottle of wine. The outside temps were abnormally warm, so the ceiling fans were key given the property has no A/C. I'd recommend turning off the fireplace pilot light, as recommended by the staff on hot days. The property is located in a great spot to walk to the local market that pops up every Friday afternoon, or down to the lake. There is also easy access to HWY 50 to head toward Emerald Bay, or back toward NV and Cave Rock. All in all, this was a great trip, and a great place to stay.

My wife and I attended a wedding at Tahoe and spent three nights at the Deerfield Lodge. Our stay there made the entire event "heavenly." Our room was a suite and was finely appointed. The furniture, the decor, the amenities, and the quiet setting were equal to any 5-star hotel in we have stayed. What made the stay even more special was the treatment we received from the manager (Doug) and his wife. They made us feel like family, and took care of our every need. Our suite had a fireplace in the living room which really was nice due to Tahoe's very cool evenings. We also had a small gas stove (simulated wood burning) in our bedroom. The temps during the day were in the 70's and a gentle breeze was always blowing, so we had no need for AC. Each room had ceiling fans which were nice to keep the air moving. Our room had a bar style kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, and a Keurig single cup coffee brewer. We were also supplied all the single serving coffee containers and pastries we needed. Wine and champagne we always free for the asking, and their selection is really nice. Our suite had two bathrooms which were really nice, and the master bath had one of the largest and BEST jacuzzis we have ever had in a hotel room. We enjoyed the quiet courtyard and the outdoor fire pit for conversation and meeting other guests. I can't imagine why a few other reviewers had any negatives about their stay, as ours was perfect.

Room Tip: Request a room toward the back of the property, and on the first floor. These rooms allow you to lo...

If I were going to own a hotel, this is the way I would want to run it. None of the pretentious things, just good old fashioned hospitality. Upon arriving, we were shown to our room and the fellow asked us what we wanted to do during our stay, gave us the cook's tour of the room and then brought back a bottle of wine to our room with a couple of glasses. What a great first impression! There was a nice gift tray of goodies on the counter, a wonderfully comfortable bed that was freshly made each day, two TV sets (for those who would want them), immaculate back yard filled with pine trees, bbq pits, fires, you name it. I never did figure out who the owners were...everyone I talked to acted like THEY owned it, which is a great sign! They had great suggestions for places to eat, and accepted our feedback of other places we found and liked. This is more the sort of place we like to stay rather than the glitzy hotels with their "amenities"...I would much rather spend my money here. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 3 downstairs, we could hear some walking on the floor above us, but this type of hotel attracts...
