We travel to lodges and cabins fairly extensively and this experience was really terrific. We're generally not into the motorized sporting scene and all it brings, so Tahoe is a little more developed than we prefer but we wanted to experience it without all of the cheesiness of the south end of the Lake. This was ideal. Tahoe City is a great location with easy access to nearby destinations inland and around the Lake. And this particular property is a gem -- mostly owing to the exceedingly gracious hospitality of Suzie, the owner and your host. She provides an orientation to your well-appointed cabin, serves up a terrific breakfast, and is a font of great suggestions on how to use your time. The site is a block off the beach but has beach access, which we enjoyed. We find that good properties generally attract good guests and we had very enjoyable conversations over wine, which Suzie serves with appetizers at 5 pm, with several other couples whose company we enjoyed. The cabins are very comfortable, quiet, and extremely well maintained. I highly commend the Cottage Inn.
