“If you're the kind of person who enjoys s'mores, stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is an old lodge with a brand new look and feel inside. The 1 story building surrounds a lawn with a pool, hot tub, ping-pong, fire pit for roasting marshmallows and making s'mores courtesy of the hosts, and meeting your neighbors. The only view of the lake is from the lobby and the beach across the street (via another establishment) is rocky, unattractive (except for the lake view) and crowded. But access to larger, sandy beaches is within a few minutes drive.

Rooms are large with huge closet, table equipped with wine glasses, refrig., coffee maker, microwave, good sized dresser, flat screen TV, but no AC. A fan is available and with windows open the room didn't get too warm in July. The decor is delightful with a lodge feel emphasizing moose and bear but in a decorative rather than corny way. Great lighting, lovely bathroom sink, adequate counter space. The super nice staff provides extensive local directions. They just opened a restaurant for guests though we didn't sample. But breakfast was super - all one could want. It's not ON the lake, but I do recommend it at a considerable savings from places that are.

Do drive around to San Harbor State Park in Nevada for amazing kayaking in crystal blue water.

We just returned from a stay at Cedar Glen Lodge. The owners have done a fantastic job refurbishing their dream spot on the lake, they treat each guest like family. The rooms were comfortable, everything was clean. Continental breakfast was served in the lobby with views of the lake across the street. Didn't get a chance to try the restaurant but we will next time. It was a perfect get away, can not wait to come back!

Room Tip: We liked the little cabins better than the hotel rooms at the top of the hill....

We ended there after spending the week moving cross country. It was quite simply perfect. Our room was exactly what we wanted. It was roomy and pet friendly. The owners made the experience even better - they made us feel like family. Both nights we went to have wine and were fortunate enough to sit and talk with them.

All the staff was more than friendly, it is in a great location. This is the place to go if you are looking to escape, spend a romantic time or your family - including pets. We are looking forward to coming back!

We had a great stay for our anniversary back in mid-June. Martha was very welcoming and showed us things to do in the area, which we appreciated since it was our first time there. The lodge was great and had plenty of things to do like volleyball, ping pong table, pool, etc. And we liked the campfire at night with smores. It was a nice place to meet the other people staying there. We love Lake Tahoe and hope to be back again with our kids next time.

We had a wonderful time and only wish we could've stayed longer to experience your restaurant. Maybe next time!

Thanks again, Martha and Alan!

The staff was very friendly and the facilities were clean and comfortable. It was the first time we were traveling with our dog and we wanted a safe, comfortable space. The staff members were very accommodating and even provided us with lists of restaurants that allowed outdoor patio seating to take our pup, lists for dog-friendly beaches, and activities we can do. They went above and beyond and we really appreciated it. Plus, smores were provided every night during our stay!
