Money well spent! They do not cater to children under 12, which it made the stay quiet & peaceful. We stayed in the Sierra Siesta room where the balcony provided lake view through pine trees. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was included and surprisingly fresh and satisfying. We did not have a chance to enjoy their Happy... More

We stayed in the Evergreen Heaven cottage which is a shady, quiet location with access to the beach. Breakfast was delightful, and different every morning that we were there. Staff could not be more accommodating.

This property reminds me of Geppetto's Village, from my Disney Days. The Cottages are something out of Europe and so well maintained inside and out. Very quiet with mostly couples visiting. Wonderful property to relax at. The breakfast has changed to a buffet but if you are not a carnivore the choices are plenty. I would suggest that they cook... More

We have passed this inn many times but finally booked a visit. We stayed in the Tahoe Teepee room which is one of their economy lodge type rooms. It was very cozy with a gas fireplace and a partial view of Lake Tahoe. The building had a porch with willow furniture to sit on. Many are located around a center... More

Great place! The people are friendly and so happy to help make suggestions on where to eat and things to do. Our cabin, Hunters Hideaway was clean and decorated very nice. It is heated with a fireplace. We were quite comfortable. The bathroom was small but served our needs with a nice sized shower and all the needed soaps, shampoos... More

We stayed for 4 nights and loved it. Didn't want to leave and definitely going back. Friendly staff. Good parking. Convenient location but quiet and peaceful. Breakfast and afternoon snacks were delicious. Just a few steps to the Lake and the view was stunning.

We stayed three nights here in mid May for vacation. We loved this inn. We had one of the smaller rooms, by choice, and it was perfect. We had a view of the lake and the lake is just across a small residential road. The team at the inn is wonderful. Great, friendly service and recommendations for things to do... More

On our recent trip to the US, we wanted to spend a few days in the mountains, skiing. This place was highly recommended on various websites, and fortunately we followed the advice. There were several cabins, all with different themes. Our cabin (Cottage Time) was charming, cozy and clean. We started each morning with an execellent breakfast, before we left... More
