“Lake Tahoe Gem”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

When we drove up, we were a little disappointed because the outdide looked like motel... However, we really were impressed by the cleanliness of the place and the true dog friendly nature of the place! Your dog can truly go eveywhere on the property. Wune and cheese evenings were great and the marshamellow/smore making party was wonderful ! While they have a sledding hill in the back of the property that the owner built, its s liitle steep for the young ones... For sledding, we highly recommend sropping off at Fish Pond before giing to Fireside. With 5 to 6 different hill grades, kids of all ages will definitely have a blast!!! The motel is a little dated, but it definitelybis cozy and warm.

We stayed in the springtime in room 8 - (the angler room). Nice size & a fireplace. The owners & pup are so wonderful. These two have thought of EVERYTHING!! They even have free kayak use & mountain bikes. There is a trail behind the property that is beautiful - we packed a picnic lunch & we stopped at every beach along the path - so nice not to have to deal with parking & traffic.

In the evening they have a 'happy hour' with wine & cheese. A large movie dvd collection & they have a nice garden area with fire pit for hanging out.

A true gem! You won't regret it. Can't wait to return next summer & may try it out this winter as well!

We think it would be impossible for anyone to have anything other than a great time at the Fireside Lodge. It is apparent from the first moment that you walk on property that this is not your average hotel - it is a labor of love. Every detail is perfectly appointed - from the thoughtful decorations, to toiletry items in the bathroom, wonderful breakfast, even wine and cheese hour and drinks in lobby. They have bikes and kayaks for guests to use. This is the most comfortable, accommodating place to stay in TAHOE! Christine, Dave and Kona have thought of everything! We spent our wedding night here and then came back for our 4 yr anniversary. 4 yrs ago this place was amazing! We have exactly the same sentiment today - we loved every minute of our stay and hope to be back very soon! Well worth every penny! The Fireside Lodge deserves at least 6 stars! (PS - there is no pool but I couldn't figure out how to take the stars off, but there is an amazing lake in close proximity that definitely counts as a pool in the summer time!)

Room Tip: We stayed in the recently renovated Mariner Room - would be great for a family. It had bunkbeds and...

We simply can't rate the Fireside Lodge highly enough! The only thing better than the facilities and general location is the personal customer service. David and Christine go well above and beyond to ensure you're taken care of every minute of your stay. We found Fireside Lodge when we moved from Omaha, NE, to Northern California. A year later, I booked an anniversary weekend getaway but had to delay when I was deployed on very short notice to the Middle East for a couple of months. Our reservations were put on hold until we could get a few days away and Christine worked with me personally every step of the way. After one crazy spring and summer, our three-night stay was a blessing!

Room Tip: Don't forget your dog! The property backs up to the state forest, which makes for easy hiking.

Adorably themed rooms, extremely friendly owners and staff, above and beyond B&B style. From the wine and cheese time, to s'mores, to rec area, to fire pit, bike rentals, hospitality and more,...this place is amazingly adorable and so very woodsy. This place is simply comfy, updated and cool (don't let the cool retro sign out front fool you) because everything is tastefully decorated in a fresh woodsy way (very "cabin-ensue"). You can definitely tell that this place is old, but even more, you can see the love that has been put into its modernizations and Tahoe character. Absolutely loved our stay and will be back!!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms are themed, so check out their website and see what fits your style if planning ahead.

My boyfriend and i stayed at the fireside lodge for a weekend. We enjoyed it so much that we are contemplating going back at the end of this month/October.
Christine was so welcoming and loving toward us and allowed us to cook the fish that we caught on the lake. It was a dream vacation. We loved how our friend Kona (beautiful yellow lab) would just knock on our door and come and hang with us. Kona, "you will always have a special place in our hearts."
Fireside lodge offers so many wonderful amenities.
We thoroughly enjoyed kayaking and bike riding as well as roasting marshmallows, drinking wine while having heated conversations by the fireplace as well as all the goodies you can handle and believe me, I can handle a lot. Not to mention the yummy waffles and breakfast treats that was all complimentary. I can't say enough about this wonderful place. What a sweet haven we found! Well my boyfriend found; he's good like that. We had the fishermens room. Oh and all the rental movies your little heart desires and when you get tired and just want to relax, swing on the hammock and enjoy the zen sauna!
Fireside Lodge, you are simply divine!

We recently spent Labor Day Weekend at the Fireside Lodge. We have not often stayed in bed & breakfasts,and had no idea it could be such a wonderful experience! Dave and Christine made us feel like family come to visit and could not have been nicer. We loved the wine and appetizers set out every night, and hanging around the fire at night with s'mores and talking to other guests was so much fun. Breakfast was delicious, and I could not resist the waffles every morning. We also enjoyed the game room, and I tried to reperfect my SkiBall throw from my childhood. We took the bikes provided for a wonderful long ride down the path right behind the Lodge. It could not have been a more perfect stay.
