This past weekend was our 7th visit to this hotel and we were not disappointed. This time, what a surprise! We were upgraded to a lakeside cottage with no extra charge (thank you so much!).
The cottage that we got has two Full sized beds (compare to regular guest room which might have two Queen sized beds). However, it was still very good sized room (a bit smaller than I thought). Just to mind you, they have several different layout for lakeside cottage (ranging from Lakeside Double with 350 sq ft, to Lakeside Cottage Upper (or Lower) two bedroom cottages with 1225 sq ft)... Just a quick FYI (we got the Lakeside Double).
The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We are also very thankful for Brian who are really nice and friendly. The beds are very comfy and it was really nicely maintained. I also like those details touches (like all the furnitures are all "log house" related, which matches with the architecture style of the hotel.. excellent job on the interior designer part). As other reviewers mentioned, this hotel is 5 minutes away from the Diamond Peak ski resort, which is probably the BEST ski resort in Tahoe if you have a children (very good ski school for children here, and family friendly). So if you are traveling with young kids, I would highly recommend this Hotel. Very nice... and we will come back again!!
