Believe the reviews you read about the Elm House as it is one of the best places to stay. We stayed here because of the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor and it was everything that the people wrote it would be. Every staff member is friendly and helpful. The owners are present and interact with the guests, getting to know each one. The rooms are lovely, the bed comfortable, and even the toilet paper is of high quality! No tissue paper here!!!! Then there are the complimentary breakfasts---wow! Every morning there is a different kind of tea bread as well as homemade waffles that are made for you. That is just the beginning. There are the homemade, warm chocolate chip cookies every night! Ample parking is available. Downtown is a long walk or a short drive away and it is a good location to get started on touring the wineries. When we go back to Tahoe, we will stay nowhere else.
