Charmed, I'm sure! My husband and I needed a weekend getaway and we knew a gal who was singing at Jake's on the Lake (Neva, a super talented artist from SoCal) so we decided on Tahoe City. We like to stay on the cheap side and this was about as cheap as we could get last-minute without staying in a total dump. I was tickled to find this quaint but sprawling cottage complex with Christmas lights twinkling in the dark when we arrived. The hosts were gracious and upbeat. Our room, the cheapest of all the rooms at $130/ni was just perfect for the two of us. We stayed in the Twig Room, a toasty little studio atop the Bear's Den. It had a stone propane fireplace, as do all the rooms, and a great little nook for cozying up with a good book. The room was just what I was hoping for. Then there was even a complimentary happy hour with cookies, apps and mulled wine. Breakfast was just as tasty — bread pudding, quiche and hash browns. I'll definitely be staying up there again when I need to get away!
