In our 92nd year, Tamarack Lodge offers 21 rooms and cabins at surprisingly affordable prices. On nearly four acres of land one mile east of Tahoe City, we are at the edge of Burton Creek State Park, and are near everything you want to see in North Tahoe. There is also plenty to do right here on our own property. Families and groups love it here, and we are pet friendly too. Our "Poker Rooms" and cabins are genuinely "Old Tahoe". The cabins have full kitchen and are great for a weekend or a week. Our King and Double Queen rooms are spacious and comfortable. All rooms have microwave ovens and refrigerators; many have kitchens. Bring your boat! We have plenty of parking and boat launching is just 60 seconds away. Bring your bike and boots too. Mountain and road trails leave from here. We're 15 minutes from downhill skiing, or head out the back door with your nordic skis or snowshoes. We have been family owned since 1927, and are committed to treating you well.

I wanted to recognize you again since they are always great tailoring to people's needs both with reserving the right room and with cancellations as long as one also reciprocates and sincerely informs the hotel about any change in plans as soon as they know about it. Most rooms

Warm, welcoming, cozy, pristine-clean, well equipped. And the list could go on..... My (usually extremely picky) girlfriend and I just loved the warm ambiance of our cabin and the excellent hospitality of our host. We had a great time, and we'll be back. Thank you, Gerard!

This was my 3rd stay at the Tamarack Lodge. That pretty much says it all doesn't it ? But don't tell anyone - We want to keep it for ourselves ! Great north shore location. Gerard and Frederique were perfect hosts !

Both N. Tahoe and S. Tahoe are worth a visit. The South is more commercialized with large casinos. N. Tahoe is a little less commercial. I like both...and there are pluses and minuses to both. I like to stay a couple days in S Tahoe in a hotel...and a couple days in the North in a cabin or lodge.

"Remodeled rooms are best."
"Cabin in the back is quieter"
"The small cabins are furthest from the road."
"We stayed in one of the little cabins (#17 I believe) and it was perfect! So cozy!"
"I stayed in one of the cabins and one of the rooms. The cabin was a bit quieter and more private, but both were really great."
