What an amazing place in a stunning location. Such friendly and warm welcome too. It was an absolutely treat to stay there this summer. We were 5 in total and could not have found a better place. The lodges are beautifully decorated with everything you need carefully selected. The attention to details is lovely and create a perfect atmosphere. We...

We stayed at the Cottage inn during our honeymoon road trip of California. This place really is truly charming and worth a visit. Ok, so it is not a 5* hotel and nor does it claim to be. That said the service we received was very warm and welcoming. It reminded me a bit like somewhere the Brady bunch would...

A friend and I stayed at the Cottage Inn and were wowed by the outstanding customer service provided by front desk clerk, Kimberly. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome, made dinner reservations for us and even offered a different room as there was road construction going on outside our unit. Go to the Cottage Inn,...

The staff at The Cottage Inn went the extra mile. We had booked a room that was near the main road. There was construction on the road and the staff offered us in addition to keeping our room, another room further away from the construction noise to have a better night sleep - no extra charge. that was very thoughtful...

Took 15 years for me to stay here and I was not disappointed with experience. Susie is a great host and her staff is top notch. Even though it is close to the highway traffic is virtually non existent after 10 pm so no noise issues to speak of even with road construction on that side of the lake. Access...

Not having been to Tahoe in 30 years, found this B&B through Trip Advisor. Staff is first rate, led by owner, Susie, who successfully makes every effort to make you feel at home, cared about, attended to, etc. much wonderful advice and direction, all with warmth and humor, topped in our case, by Susie suggesting and preparing a hot toddy...

I really, really wanted to love this place. It's been renovated, and it's clean and pretty. Here are my issues: We stayed in Cottage Time, which had a very cool stone shower with a rain shower head, but the water pressure was almost nonexistent, and as my husband said after standing under the water for almost five minutes, "My legs...

We have stayed at this charming spot several times. It is an historic "motor court" of earlier timess which the owner has lovingly retored over several years. There are the regular rooms and modern luxury suites built in the old style. Even though it is on the highway, it is set back enough that we never seem to sense the...

We spent 2 nights in the Dreamcatcher room as part of a road trip. The place is magical and I loved our room, really nicely furnished to a theme without feeling 'themed'. A really relaxing environment and the lake pebble beach is just through the private access gate with the neighbouring Sunnyside just a short stroll away for an evening...

We chose Tahoe City for our family vacation (kids are 19 and 21) because we were looking for peace and quiet with natural beauty, and the Cottage Inn looked like an interesting place to stay. We made the right choice all the way around! We booked the Game Room for the kids (it has separate beds) and the adjoining Enchanted...
