“Eco-Friendly, Fantastic Service, Awesome Food, Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I stayed here with my husband and our 6-yr old for a weekend. The hotel and restaurant staff were so friendly and knowledgable (where to we find the best fish tacos to what's the best bike routes with kids in tow). Patty the owner is an amazing woman who seems to be there 24/7 and makes sure every guest is taken care of.
Their restaurant Stella is fantastic! Don't Miss It!!! Not only is the large complementary breakfast wonderful, but appetizers, dinner and desserts are amazing too. Congrats to the chef and his team.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable, upscale European contemporary. I loved the soap/shampoo/conditioner/lotion despensers, free water, coffee and tea maker. The main lodge has free newspapers, comfy sitting area, goodies (cookies or Clif bars, etc.) and a really cool bar that serves both the inside of the lodge and the outside courtyard (where we sat amongst the beautiful landscaping).
Truckee is just a mile down the road and the Truckee Regional Park is across the street with a great running trail, playground, frisbee golf course and amphitheater. This is my new go-to place to stay in Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: Rooms 101-104 and 111-114 face East and get the morning sun (although the curtain keeps most of it o...

So glad a buddy turned me on to this place! Ill be back. I loved the European feel to it and the awesome archetecture- really made me feel like I was travelling and being taken care of. The big stinker was the restaurant's hours- they close at 8:30 on Friday, peak season!!! Crazy! If you are leaving the Bay Area, you won't make it to dinner unless you leave at lunch time.

The Cedar House was a very pleasant surprise. It is well-located near Truckee and the freeway, but there is not much within walking distance of the property. However, the room was delightful, with a modern European flavor. Also, the restaurant in the hotel was amazing!!

I stayed here with a photography class late summer 2012. The hotel is tucked back off the old highway between Truckee and Lake Tahoe...easy to miss is you are driving by. No real views of the area from the hotel, but they have created a lovely garden experience in the courtyard. The rooms are somewhat spartan...decorated modern Euro style and the linens were soft and luxurious. The hotel is complemented by the associated restaurant STELLA...a wonder in this mountain community. Home made breads and pastries, excellent breakfast choices and dinners were divine....We haven't had food like this since we retired from the Bay Area. Staff is friendly, helpful. We enjoyed the late afternoon tea and appetizers also. Very much recommended.

From check in to check out this was a wonderful experience! We enjoyed the afternoon cookies in the eco gorgeous lobby, and appreciated the lack of charge for water in the room (can't believe most places charge for WATER). Attention to detail is evident in all aspects of this facility. Love the linens and the shampoo/conditioner, provided teas and coffees, but mainly love the excellent service and Stella, the best hotel near Lake Tahoe. Highly recommend this hotel and restaurant. AND it's affordable!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was beautiful and very interesting. The grounds are pretty and the view was wonderful. Breakfast was better when we got there earlier on Monday, rather than Sunday, but that's to be expected, I guess. The eggs were very dry and crumbly, but that's typical of restaurant eggs (don't put milk in scrambled eggs and that won't happen!) One problem I could see in the room was the tension pole they use for clothes hanging by the door...one piece of wood juts out and at my height (5'4"), and since it's a light color, it's not visible when you walk over and bend down to put something in the corner...three times I hit my head on it and nearly cut my scalp because it's sharp. That was not fun and made me pretty mad. Also, the refrigerator actually kept me awake with the very loud buzzing and whooshing noise it made. Sounded like a dishwasher, so I had to get up several times to turn the thermostat down so it would stop, but it was only temporary. Queen bed...not the same size as a US Queen, seemed like a Full (I bet it doesn't measure 60" across, probably 54" like a Full, mattress only, not the platform.
Dog treats and toys were great, dogs loved them, which is unusual because they are very picky about treats, but they gobbled them up. One dog bed had a large hole chewed in the cover, so I had to report it, to make sure they knew my dogs didn't do it.
We do appreciate how dog-friendly this place is and will definitely come back and stay, maybe next time in a King room or a suite, but this time was last minute, so that's all they had. Still a nice place to stay, even with the problems. The staff were super nice and friendly.

Room Tip: European beds are very small, try to get a King, since the Queen is more like a full. Too small for...

Cedar House Sport Hotel combines the simple elegance of European design with a very attentive and friendly staff to ensure your stay there is terrific. The venue is exceptionally clean and well-kept. The grounds are meticulously maintained. Their onsite restaurant, Stella, crafts mouth-watering meals and desserts. Definitely a place to put on your must-stay list!

Room Tip: The hotel is dog-friendly but you must call ahead to confirm.
