“You should like this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We stayed here in May, 2013 for 3 nights as part of a wedding party. There are many different room types to choose, we opted for the 1-bedroom stand-alone cabin. The best part of the cabin for the gas fireplace in the living room that was very easy to control and keep the desired temperature in the cabin. We also liked the open-pit fireplace that you could stand around and talk to your friends and family at night. Our only disappointment was that we did not have time to eat in the restaurant. We had heard that the food was really good. Overall, great location, ambiance, and service.

We travelled as a party of 7 family and friends, had the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage and a one bedroom cottage. Our cottage has perfect, warm cozy and big enough for 5, we looked foward to come back to it each night and enjoyed sitting around the fire outside. We had the best experience Martha was amazing!! And the location was beautiful. We will defiantly recommend Cedar Glen Lodge to everyone and its the only place we will stay when back in Tahoe.
Thank you Martha and Alan.

Room Tip: All rooms are heated but the ones with a fire place just add to the experience!

We stayed in a room in the yet to be finished main building at the top of the hill. It was kind of fun to be in a building with nobody else. We looked out on the lake and the other cabin type rooms. Ours was a large 1 bedroom suite with a full kitchen. Fresh from it's remodel with a whirlpool tub, granite countertops, wood floors and a comfortable bed. They have done quite a good job on their remodel. Considering some of the surrounding motels/resorts this one stands out.

Room Tip: I think the upper rooms (when finished) in the back building would be best due to no foot traffic ab...

Cedar Glen Lodge has so much going for it. First, is their manager, Martha. She is personable, efficient, and very knowledgeable about the lodge and the Tahoe area. Next, the location is fantastic! Then the suites are very comfortable, clean, and safe. Many restaurants and shops are near by so you don't have to venture far to have access to the great abundance of supply and demand. The beautiful lake is just across the road with their own beach area so What A Package!
AND they are still perfecting!

Green Features: I couldn't help but notice how strongly Martha feels about the Environment and their practices to do what is best to save our planet.

My goodness! Thank you so much for your kind and sweet words! Frankly, guests like you make me love my job so much, that it doesn't even feel like "work," at all. Thank you!!!

I am so glad you were able to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe and our property as well. As you mentioned, our location is fantastic, and we keep working hard to renovate it. The putting green should be finished in a couple of days. We had a three days delay due to rain, but it just made everything more green and beautiful.

Thanks again and hope to see you back soon!

First off the location and scenery are perfect. The hosts are the true definition of hosts. The cabins are really mini homes, comfortable, clean and a true retreat. Now let's talk about dinner at the Rustic. Truly a four star resturaunt, impeccable service and the food, well let me say if we could have ordered everything off the menu we would have.
Owner pride is ever present the Cedar Glen. Martha and Alan are in constant motion renovating and improving the property for their guests.
This our first visit to Tahoe and we thank Martha and Alan for making our memories wonderful!

We had a great time at the Cedar Glen Lodge. Our cottage had just been renovated and we were the first people staying in it. It was just perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more. Martha and the entire staff made us feel so welcome and thought of every detail to help us enjoy the resort and the surrounding area. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Tahoe.

The rooms were comfortable, the atmosphere relaxing, and the staff amazing. My fiance and I spent a wonderful weekend with Martha and the Cedar Glen crew and we wouldn't take it back for anything. It should be a visit everyone should make at least once in their life.
