“quiet retreat during shoulder season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

arrived with low expectations but was pleasantly surprised after meeting Caroline and the warmth she radiated. The hosts care a great deal about their pets and the room was very clean, and my standards are incredibly high. I rented for four nights and really appreciated the level of cleanliness and hospitality! If you are looking for a quiet retreat to write and relax, definitely recommend coming here during the shoulder season which I've been told is right now.

Bonuses:
1. The hosts are very easy to talk with, friendly, knowledgeable, and feel like family. 2. There is a beautiful lake with stunning views close by.
3. If you are into the casinos, both Harvey's and Harrah's are within a five minute walk.
4. Heavenly village is two blocks away with a cinema, supermarket, and decent variety of food choices.
5. Continental breakfast is light fare, but still, it's free and available until 11am!
6. There was some difficulty yanking my snow chains off and after spending a good twenty minutes unsuccessfully attempting to locate the hooks on the back of my tires, Grant took less than one minute to work his magic and free my vehicle. Awesome!
7. After we got snowed in, Grant took the machine to blow snow out of the parking lot even though my car really didn't need it. Caroline even offered me gloves and brushes to scrape the snow off my windshield.

Cons:
none.

For a solo traveler, this struck me as gold for the price. The fireplace provides the heat and the bathroom, linens, and towels look very clean.

A great place to stay and take in the sights of Lake Tahoe and enjoy the adjacent casinos. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, plenty of continental breakfast and birds to entertain you during breakfast. You also get to enjoy the sound of the manmade bubbling stream as you hang out on the patio for breakfast, a great addition/idea by staff. Two blocks from the beach, two blocks from casinos and two blocks from shopping.

Greeted by Hanna, the adorable yellow shaggy dog. A+ on hospitality. Cute attention to detail inside and out. Fridge and microwave in our room. Extremely dog friendly. Hot tub. Continental breakfast of oatmeals, about 6 kinds of bagels, toast, sweet bread, bananas, cold cereals, orange juice, coffee and milk. Very quiet and comfortable. Very well kept and friendly. Carol was so helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 107 & 108 have electric fireplace/heaters, and are slightly apart from the other rooms. N...

This place has it all; short walking distance to the beach or casino, great continental breakfast and is VERY pet friendly. The staff is most friendly and takes the time to sit down and talk to you in the many accomodating sitting areas. You can't beat it for the ambiance, price and wonderful staff. This is a must place to stay when you visit Tahoe. You will not be dissapointed!!

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed in any room.

This is very good value for the cost. The owner and staff are very friendy and helpful. The room had everything we needed. We only stayed one night but is fitted out for those staying a week in ski season with microwave etc.

The staff is very friendly and made us feel right at home, the rooms were very clean and we never had to ask for anything. The bed was very comfortable and plenty big enough, mini fridge and microwave all comforts of home, but someone else cleaning up after us. Breakfast was very good and the coffee was more than excellent, we did not get a chance to try the hot tub, but will for sure next time out. A definate must do again!!
