WHY I LOVED IT: We attended a wedding at the West Shore Cafe & Inn this weekend, and the Lodge at Obexer’s was the perfect location to stay! It is exactly a 0.2 mile walk between both locations. (If you walk on the bike road it is safer and you can keep your dance shoes clean)! Their property manager was great at communication. He texted us before our arrival with some check-in instructions and offered to help with recommendations. The price was great. Although they have a minimum 3 night stay- it was STILL less expensive to do 3 nights than 2 at the other area hotels (By approximately $60) The room was clean and basic. All you need if you’re looking for a place to sleep and freshen up between beaching and boating. Although there aren’t all the “hotel” amenities onsite, there are plenty across the street. RECOMMENDATIONS: - Jetski We walked across the street and rented jet-skis from Obexer’s Boat Co. that was super fun, highly recommend. - Obexer’s Deli is across the street too. They have premade sandwich’s, liquor, and many other items you may need. Their coffee is good too. - Make sure you stop into their shop next door & pick up some good gear! Great hats and T-shirt’s. -Check out the Eagle Rock hike down the road (not walking distance). It’s a very short 15 minute hike up to a beautiful look-out point. As long as you’re healthy you should be fine! A lot of elderly people and toddlers on the trail, great family hike. -Chambers Landing: for a classic Chamber’s Punch drink & dinner. Make reservations ahead of time, or show up an hour early, put your name on the list, and then wait at the bar. We Uber’ed here. There aren’t many Uber’s available in the area- so wait times are higher, but we didn’t have any issues finding one.

Good room for a reasonable price. It is in a great location and near where all my friends and family have cabins/ were staying. Would go back year after year. They even made accommodations so that I could park my long wheel base sprinter.

Wonderful experience at those beautiful lodge. Aaron was an amazing host. Everything was clean and very modern. Literally 2 mins from Homewood ski resort! If you don’t mind waiting on a shuttle it will take you to the resort. Obexer’s also Has a general store with good coffee/burritos for breakfast!

My family recently stayed a week at Obexer's Lodge on the west shore during ski week in February, and had a great stay--even though there was over ten feet of snow, the Lodge had our parking spot cleared in time for arrival. We stayed upstairs in a room with two comfy queen beds and a small kitchenette. Our main reason for visiting was to ski, and Obexer's turned out to be the perfect west-shore location for Homewood (2mins), Squaw (20 mins), Northstar (35mins). We would definitely stay again.

We were on the first floor in a wonder room with king sized bed, and walk in closet. The porch was so nice to bundle up and watch the snowstorm. Walking distance to cute cafe, store and Homewood Ski Resort.

Great little lodge in the heart of Homewood. Solid place for a couple's get away. Perfect location and beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. Treat yourself and get up early to catch the sunrise on the Obexer's dock. Very Instagram worthy.

We loved this cozy cabin. We rented 2 rooms and they were nice and clean. The beds very comfortable. It is a good location right across the street from the lake. And a quick drive to Tahoe city. Great place to stay

This was a comfortable cabin like lodge in Lake Tahoe. The emenities we needed were easy access across the street. Behind the lodge was a trail that was nice for walking. Walls of the rooms were a bit thin so we could hear your neighbors.
