We stayed in the Mt. Watson suite - pictures do not do this property justice. It was a perfect setting to travel with family and enjoy a relaxing lakefront/ski-in-ski-out experience at Homewood. Staff was exceptional and at every turn made my family feel special and well-cared for. I highly recommend staying here.

I enjoyed the beautifully appointed rustic rooms. The friendly and attentive staff made our visit very enjoyable. The plated food served at the reception was marvelous...the halibut was my favorite! I can't wait to visit again....

The location is wonderful, Lake Tahoe is breath-taking and the rustc / elegant Inn completes the frame. The rooms, though few, are well appointed, some with exceptional views. Cocktails on the deck are well executed and there is plenty of room for group or intimate conversation. The menu is somewhat eclectic and would benefit from expansion and diversity.

The location and views are absolutely spectacular. The inn is beautiful. The rooms comfortable. And the staff, for the most part friendly and competent: but one can't help feeling that there is no human there there. No presence of someone who cares and is in charge. So even though there is a restaurant with a full elaborate kitchen downstairs, and...

My brother and I love to grab the paddle boards and work up an appetite for the west shore burger. It's the best burger on the lake. It's such a great spot on and off the lake. Friendly boating and server staff. Although the menu seems limited, you are guaranteed to like anything you order.

Several new acquaintances and I stopped here for lunch....a perfect sunny, warm day sipping cocktails (try the Homewood Meadows) and every food choice was sampled with ooh's and ahh's. A return visit is on my list!

Location? Prime. Potential? Superior. Expectations, not so much. I planned a special event here as the location is one of the best on the lake. I had to reschedule, and came here solo thinking that even by myself, it had to be good. But once in my Mountain room, I was pretty disappointed. The room also overlooks the parking lot...

I live for the afternoons and dusk views I experience time and time again on the deck after a day on the slopes or a day on the lake. Drinks are amazing, food tastey, and the views are the best at Lake Tahoe. Hidden gem on the kick back and casual west shore.

I haveonly been to the restaurant, so I cannot say anything about the inn itself. The restaurant has a stunning view, perhaps one of the best in Tahoe.The odd thin however is that already by 8 o'clock mot of the tables re empty, as people in California tend to eat very early. It is hard to fathom that people seem...
