This inn has been in the area for a very long time and has seen so much Tahoe history. The rooms are small and on the older side but very clean and cute. We stayed here for a weekend and it was lively and colorful with a great staff and beautiful weather (grabbing a beer downstairs and drinking it while sitting on the chairs outside the room was very romantic!)
There seems to be a lot of changes going on there, a restaurant downstairs (89 and Pine) with excellent food, and a very nice staff. If you are checking in after hours with no reservation it might be tough to get the innkeeper on the phone since she lives on the property and there is no actual "reservation" person on duty downstairs, hence the locked door (to keep the current guests safe and sound and the bears/raccoons out!)
There are many little cabins on the property that are worth the week's stay as well. There used to be a pool and hopefully the owners can get it up and running again soon since it would be a fantastic draw to the sleepy little town. Down the street is the famous PDQ market and West Side Pizza is next door as well. It's only an 8 mile drive into Tahoe City and a short walk across the street to the lake. In the back of the property is a great community park and amphitheater.
All in all, this is a wonderful place for the cost and the atmosphere. If you are looking for a 5 star room, move on... but for a warm, cared for, historic inn you're at the right place. We are definitely going back this winter to ski and this summer for another quick vacation.
