We stayed here again after a good experience last year. The stand alone cabin was great for a family. It was recently remodeled so it could use a few things such as a DVD player (was in the smaller duplex cabins) and complete curtains in the separate kitchen not just valances. The place is even cozier than last year.

Dear Thirtyish,

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback with such a wonderful review! It was great seeing you and your family again. We are very glad you enjoyed our stand alone fire place suite and found Cedar Glen Lodge even cozier than last year!

While I did not want to block the light and view from our kitchen, I will definitely have mini-blinds installed so our guests will have an option for their own personal comfort.
With technology changing so fast and our energy focused on renovations, it became very difficult to provide DVD players in our rooms. Please know that we are exploring new options such as per per view, in room movies and on demand.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

Martha

Sadly, we were only able to stay at Cedar Glen Lodge for a single night. As parents to two small children, getting away for our 10th anniversary was a must but it could only be for one night. I was a little hesitant as this was our first trip to Tahoe (sad, really, since we only live a few hours away) and we have never stayed in a cabin or lodge.

This WILL NOT be our last time. Yes, the lake is GORGEOUS and since we were there during slow season, it was nice and quiet, but Martha and her place made it an exceptionally sweet and memorable little trip.

We stayed in #6, the Romance Suite and it was adorable. Not only was the cabin cute, clean and functional (the kitchen was surprisingly bigger than seemed in the pictures and yes, she does provide dishes, cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc) but it was obvious that it had been worked on recently. After arriving, I checked in with Martha, who was the sweetest hostess/owner I have ever had the pleasure of working with. After discovering the reason for our visit, she went out of her way to help suggest restaurants for an anniversary dinner and invited us back for the smores around the campfire. After dinner, we came back to our cabin to find a sweet little gift and card from Martha, and when I went in to thank her, our conversation turned to talking about the property. The result was her spending the next two hours with us, not only showing us the cabins (to see which one would be good for our family with small children) but also sitting around the campfire, eating smores and talking about our families. She is such a sweetheart and it's obvious that she is working incredibly hard to update the cabins (it is an older property, well taken care of, but in need of updating) and her personal touches are everywhere (from coordinated fabrics, to unique furniture pieces). Each cabin is unique in decor, decoration and layout, with a cute cabin feel but without feeling kitsch. Some of the cabins have the new fireplaces, new decor and have obviously been given a lot of TLC but, even in the ones that are still in the middle of being upgraded, it's obvious she is working hard on each individual cabin in order to bring it up to her standard. The property is really cute and the BBQs (though we were not able to use them) on the lawn area great option for families who are on a budget. Yes, they are under construction to build a new lobby, but after meeting Martha and seeing what she has to work with right now, you can't help but feel for her and be excited she gets a nice, new place to work from. I can't stress enough how much of a sweetheart she was.

Martha, we can't wait to bring the kids back and spend time with you guys again!

PS Tip that Martha gave us: If you are traveling in the summer, the Lodge suites are the best with the air conditioning and view of the lake, but if you are there in the winter, the cabins are fantastic with the snow and fireplaces. Also, if you choose to not take the winter buses, the drive from the property to Northstar at Tahoe is really short and pretty.

Room Tip: Romance Suite was cute for couples, but we took a shine to Cabins 7 and 8 for our small family. 14 w...

We recently stayed at the Cedar Glen Lodge and it was just what we were looking for; we stayed in the Lodge in the recently renovated rooms and it was great! Even though they're in the middle of construction, the lodge rooms on the second floor were clean and quiet. It was just the peaceful setting we were looking for. We missed Martha, but Alan was a warm host! The great thing about them is that they're always looking for ways to improve the property and they pay attention to detail. We'd definitely stay here again! Top notch!

Room Tip: For a quiet room, choose the top floor of the lodge.

This place is lovely, the staff are friendly, rooms clean and well equipped and generally a very homely place. The owner was helpful and made some good recommendations. We had a room at the top which had great views. We would definately recommend this one.

OK, a little over the top, but arriving here after a long day's ride on the motorcycle was like arriving at the home of a good friend you haven't seen in a while. Martha is a great host - the kind who makes you feel like she's been waiting for you to arrive all day and will do whatever it takes to make sure you've got what you need. Within 5 minutes of talking with her I decided to stay in Tahoe another day - she gave me a lot of ideas for things to do. It's great to see people in the travel/hospitality business who really love what they do - even greater to get to benefit from their desire to be helpful. I'll be back - the north shore of Tahoe is more my speed. This place is unpretentious, welcoming and comfortable as a pair of favorite slippers.

My wife and stayed in a two-room cabin at Cedar Glen in August for one night. We really enjoyed our stay there and the property overall really impressed us. We liked the fact that everything really seemed to be updated or in the process of being updated. You could tell a lot of care has been put into the property. The common areas were nice, welcoming and comfortable. We would gladly stay there again on a trip back to the Tahoe area. Martha was especially nice - everytime she walks by you she asks to make sure everything is going "ok". The staff that we interacted with were all great so considering all we give Cedar Glen very high marks. You'll love it like we did!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying here with our two dogs. We had a cabin with a wonderful view of the lake not to mention the beautiful gardens. Martha was so sweet she wanted to make sure we had the best view. The rooms were neat and tidy and our kitchen was fully equipped. I was surprised that even bbq tools were provided. The bed was super comfy too.
We loved the smores by the firepit and relaxing in the hot tub at night. Martha and Alan were so friendly and helpful, providing information on nearby hikes and about local stores. They definately pay attention to detail and go over and above to make your stay amazing.
We can't wait to go back.
