We enjoyed our stay at Cedar House. The room was comfortable. I did find the suite room a tad bit small, but overall, very clean and visually appealing. We stayed at the rear of the hotel and felt the spot was probably the best. We overlooked the parking lot with a partial view of forest and road.
It was quiet in the evenings and slept ok except for the occasional train whistle that regularly passed through late nights. Apparently, this is a normal thing, but something to note if you are a light sleeper. It was any annoyance, but not enough to deter me from my room rating. The bed was compfy.
I like the feel of the place and the layout. We had a small balcony, that was nice to sit out during the afternoons. It was private, except, people could see you from parking lot if they looked up. We did have privacy from neighbors.
The price seemed to be reasonable for Tahoe and what you could expect with the location. We we pretty close to restaurants and downtown Truckee and most good restaurants. Other eating options were only a few miles away.
There is a nice walking path near the park,and it runs along side the Truckee river. It's worth checking out if you are interested in a good power walk or jog.
We especially liked the breakfast options and would return for that, fresh baked bread, granola and salad greens were my favorite.
I was disappointed that the on-site restaurant did not cater to vegetarian palate. I asked about this, but was put off by the response. "The chef does not change the pre-set menu." I was informed that they could leave out the protein fro the menu, but no mention of adjusting price and it was a bit off-putting to feel like they were not taking this seriously or considered this to be a legitimate request...so consequently, we went to other restaurants in town.
The other negative I had was that the worker, cook at the buffet breakfast never smiled or looked like her wanted to be there. I loved the granola that they served and learned that they actually make it in the restaurant there. Unfortunately, they only had the one time during our 3 day stay and when I asked, I was told they ran out and would make more the following days, but it never happened. I think this would have been an easy request to fulfill. Alas, we still enjoyed the breakfast even though my wife requested cooked eggs from the cook that did not smile.
I hope they correct that. We would still like to visit again.
