“Warm Lakeside Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Cedar Glen has everything you want in Lake Tahoe lodging, plus more. The renovated cabins are comfortable and well-outfitted, the view of the lake across the road is lovely, the pool and hot tub are clean and warm, and the proprietors and staff could not be more helpful. They go above and beyond to make you feel at home: providing a well stocked woodpile for the fire ring every night (and fresh ingredients so that you can make s'mores), for example, and beach towels for relaxing at the lake. Breakfast in their cozy bar is included, and the restaurant is a comfortable place for a good dinner with expert service. Whether you're there to hike in the summer or to ski in the winter, you'll feel like Cedar Glen Lodge is a home away from home.

Thank you so much for your humbling review! We are happy that you had the chance to use the firepit and all the amenities around the property including the restaurant. It is nice to hear that you felt like Cedar Glen Lodge is your "Home Away From Home", which is the greatest compliment. Hope for your return.

Had a fantastic time this weekend. Room #14 was very comfortable and clean. Newly remodelled it had all the amenities. The staff incl. Martha and Alan were extremely helpful in finding things to do for adults and the kids. Will definitely stay here again. Very nice relaxed family setting.

Thank you for your great review! We are glad you enjoyed cabin #14. That is continually a guest's favorite. As you might have noticed, we love to talk everything Lake Tahoe, and try to tell you about all the great activities this beauty has to offer. Anytime you and your family are back in the area, please come visit again! Snow is already here and is a great time to stay.

The Cedar Glen Lodge has recently been re-done, and is a fantastic place to stay. Family run, with nice cabins, a great breakfast and really good restaurant. And every evening they have a campfire burning with s'more supplies! Pool and hot tub heated, as well as sauna.

My partner and I took my parents to Tahoe for an overnight trip and I wish I could have stayed longer so that we could have enjoyed the cabin we had at Cedar Glen longer. Martha was wonderful from beginning to end. We were able to check in early because of her generosity and kindness and she took us on a tour of the grounds when I expressed my interest in honeymooning there.

The two bed/two bath cabin (#14) was simply perfection. Just big enough for our two families to interact without feeling cooped up. The decor was exactly as I had hoped it would be: rustic and chic at the same time.

The pool and hot tub were outstanding on our slightly chilly October afternoon and the lake, just across the street, was fabulous! Within walking distance and gorgeous.

We had dinner at the restaurant during our stay and the food was EXCELLENT. Could not have asked for better food and at such a reasonable price. I have stayed at South Lake Tahoe before and the prices for comparable food were triple there. Our only sour note came with our server at the restaurant and we can't quite put our finger on what was off, but something was. Perhaps she was having a bad day or something, but she was not as engaging and enthusiastic as Martha and it came across clearly.

The fire pit evening and the complimentary s'mores were delicious, as well. Really, if you are looking for a quiet getaway, love cabins and the "mountain feel" of North Tahoe, Cedar Glen is the place for you.

We are planning to come back for our honeymoon next year and will be visiting again and again as the years progress. What a lovely find!

Room Tip: Two couples will want Cabin #14 with two bedrooms/two baths. It was perfect!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are very happy you and your family enjoyed your stay and took advantage of our restaurant as well. We would love to have you back for your honeymoon! It is fabulous that you stayed in our "Presidential Suite, #14!" We are very happy how this unit turned out after the massive renovations. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments on our restaurant. Our chefs take a great deal of joy preparing their food and we are thrilled that this translates well to our guests. I am so sorry that there was a "sour note," with the server. She comes for a fine-dining background and sometimes this can come across a little stiff. She's working hard adjusting into our more casual fine-dining and personable atmosphere! I am so glad you loved the fire-pit, and the timing of your trip was absolutely perfect. The weather is very nice and the landscape is gorgeous.

Thanks again and can't wait to see you back for your honeymoon!

Whenever we plan a weekend getaway, we always look to TripAdvisor for tips. If you're interested in kicking back and unwinding, this is the place for you! We were glad we chose Cedar Glen as it is a wonderful place to stop time and rejuvenate. The lodge was warm and cozy, very welcoming. Alan, the host, was so pleasant and helpful. Dinner at the restaurant was fabulous and the service was great. We only have two issues; if at all possible, do not stay in Cabin 2. The cabin is right next to housekeeping/maintenance/ice machine and it was quite noisy especially in the early morning. If we were not early risers, it would have been very annoying. In addition, our mattress was very uncomfortable. All in all, it was a good stay and we can see ourselves coming back...but staying in a different cabin!

Room Tip: Do not stay in Cabin 2.

Thank you so much for your wonderful and insightful review! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Your feedback is really valuable to us as through this we are learning not to turn on the washer machine early in the morning and will have that mattress replaced right away! It is funny that this never came up before, but I can see how this could happen, so thanks so much for bringing it to our attention. I am truly pleased that you had the opportunity to try our restaurant and to hear the you enjoyed it.

Thanks again and we look forward to you next visit!

We recently stopped at the Rustic Lounge in the Cedar Glen Lodge and had dinner. We previously had friends who had a wonderful stay at Cedar Glen Lodge and alerted us to this hidden jewel. The food and service was excellent, and the menu included many little extra delights including homemade breads and desserts. My wife had the salmon and I enjoyed the homemade meatloaf. For dessert we enjoyed the Panna Cotta. And the wine bar had a very nice variety of wines. I would highly recommend others trying the restaurant.

TripAdvisor reviews are spot on. Lovely getaway. No cost spared in the remodeling. Beds are super comfy, both for those that need firm and soft. Just like Goldilocks said, "Just right". Make sure to eat at the restaurant. The salmon was outstanding. Delightful hosts, perfect quiet North Shore location right across the street from the water. Can't say enough good things. We'll go back again and again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cottage #14, just remodeled 2 bed/2bathwith full kitchen gorgeously done.

Thank you for your fantastic review! We do get many compliments about our beds, in fact some of our guests actually ask us about what brand we have so that they can purchase them for their homes. We are happy to hear that you had a chance to dine with us at our new restaurant. Please come back and visit us again!
