You could easily walk past Mother Nature's Inn on the street and not realize that there is a hotel here, as the rooms are in the back of a furniture store. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay here and found that the somewhat out-of-the-way location really helped to keep things quiet and peaceful. We brought our dog with us and were pleasantly surprised by the additional amenities of the pet-friendly rooms - doggie treats, bowls, and an extra sheet to put down on the bed. Be aware if you bring pets that their policy is that you cannot leave them unattended in the room while you're out and about. This wasn't an inconvenience for us, as our dog doesn't seem to mind sitting in the car by himself.
The hotel has a nice website, but no online reservations. This led to the only hiccup of our stay, as the receptionist accidently booked us for Friday and Saturday nights, whereas we were actually planning to stay Saturday and Sunday nights. Fortunately, there were rooms available and everything worked out, although we did have to change rooms for the second night. Hotel staff were very accommodating in honoring our reservation and even offered to move our bags for us.
While the hotel doesn't offer a view of the lake, we found both of the rooms we stayed in to be quite nice. We liked the rustic furnishings and the free Wi-Fi worked very well. Our room had a small refrigerator, but if you want to microwave something, you'll have to use the communal microwave down the hall.
The hotel is very conveniently located in the middle of Tahoe City, and you can walk to just about any place in town in 10 minutes or less. Rosie's Cafe is right next door, and is an excellent place for a meal. The lakeshore is across the street and down a flight of stairs.
Overall, this was a nice, cozy hotel with reasonable rates and a great location. We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay here again next time we're in town.
