This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe and I didn't know what to expect. We were absolutely charmed by this B&B and the area in which it is located! We picked the NW shore of the lake for our stay, as it sounded as if this area might be more relaxed and serene than South Lake Tahoe. I thought... More

Perfect getaway! Had plans to say one evening but had such a nice time we chose to stay another. Great location close to town however tucked away from the hustle. Many many different rooms to chose from, we stayed in Tahoe Teepee and Happy Trails. Breakfast each morning was excellent, a wide variety to chose from including a homemade granola.... More

I'm telling how great this is, not that they need my review, they have lots of repeat guests. Review their website very carefully. A CHARMING place. Lots of personal service, each room has a different theme. Included with room, a different home-cooked breakfast every day and evening wine and snacks. Owner operated and VERY friendly and helpful staff. A lovely... More

We were half the average age of the typical customer which had it benefits and drawbacks. Very quaint and relaxing break. Wine and appetisers at 5 were popular and tasty. Private beach wasn't too private but still good (but go to north shore for sand). Breakfast was slightly odd but filling.

Having a rest in such a great place worth to go there. Don't hesitate ! The location, the rustic retreat room, the home-made breakfast and different each morning, all is here to make your stay a success. Note the little bathroom (only for 2), the access to the local beach of the lake, and a little fridge in the wardrobe.

We recently spent one week in the Sail Away room. Very cute. Breakfasts were fantastic, as well as was the afternoon wine and treats. The private beach club is directly across the street and is very nice. When we checked out, they gave us a couple of cookies for the road! Will definatly be back.

Includes access to local beach you can walk to so you don't have to fight with others to find a parking space. Complimentary wine and homemade snacks in the... More
