We stay in the "Wolf" cabin and it was a very nice way to disconnect from everything for a few days. You WILL NOT have access to internet, cell phone, or TV but that is what this place is all about. It is a very quiet getaway from all the hustle. The rooms are basic but I don't know what...

If you are on a road trip and need a great spot to grab a bite/drink, this place is IT! We stopped here to check out the view of the lake (i.e., Silver Lake) from the lodge. Well, the lodge does not offer a lake view, but you can walk to the lake. The lodge serves a great selection of...

I stayed at the Kit Carson Lodge for 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend (early September) with my husband and 9 year old twins in the Red Squirrel cabin. I am giving it 4 stars because of the absolutely beautiful setting and location. But, the cabin itself is very rustic and not updated, as I expected. The cabin was located...

After meeting my husband at Silver Lake more than 20 years ago, we have celebrated our anniversary several times at the Kit Carson Lodge. Since new owners took over six years ago, there have been a lot of updates and maintenance and the lodge and cabins still retain their rustic charm with a bit more polish. Our most recent stay...

First time at Silverlake, and what a gem it is. The ladies at the front desk were very warm and welcoming, and the owners were very pleasant and friendly as well. The cabin was perfect for a short visit and very close to the lake. Walked into the general store and was able to buy single beers and organic VEG!...

The area is so beautiful and has plenty to do. Spectacular scenery, Silver Lake, The Pot Holes is only a short hike for fun in the river, camping, mountain hiking and other lakes are so close by. Tahoe is only a 35 minute drive too. The whole area is so quiet and peaceful, it is a great escape.

We have enjoyed this California Sierra gem for many years, and it just keeps getting BETTER! We rented a lakefront cabin for two nights. Enjoyed the coziness of the rustic, historic simplicity of the cabin, which was enhanced by it's upgraded floors, overall cleanliness, & fabulous foam topped bedding! There are no words to describe the beauty of this lake...
