“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We wanted to celebrate a birthday and a new job so decided on spending a couple of days in North Lake Tahoe. Cedar Glen Lodge is one of those old school Tahoe properties that give you an idea of what things were like in a less stressful time.

We stayed in a standalone cabin that had a fireplace (which cleverly heated the entire cabin), small living room, kitchen (we did not use), bedroom and bath. Cabin was exceptionally clean, contained all amenities including connectivity, and was genuinely relaxing on multiple levels. Owners were very nice and the restaurant in the Lodge was also wonderful.

We will be back.

We just stumbled on Cedar Glen Lodge by chance, and what a stroke of luck! The owners have a natural empathy with people, always had time for a chat, and we immediately felt welcomed. Plenty of advice/suggestions, excellent hospitality. Room was spacious and tastefully decorated. Loved it. Unfortunately we only had one night here. We'll have to come back!

Room Tip: Our room was beautifully refurbished and in excellent taste. Perhaps all rooms have been refurbished...

great location, very nice rooms with all you need when visiting Lake Tahoe. very friendly staff & owners who give very useful tips about Lake Tahoe and what to visit.
Breakfast is simple but you have the choice of different kind of fruits, which is seldom the case in other hotels

I stayed here for two nights with my wife, my sister, her husband and her two kids, two and four. The lodge was of high standard and quite luxurious. The owner went out of her way to ensure the kids had smores and were comfortable all around. They did not have any kid beds, but our beds were very big (for european standards) and we had enough space. The breakfast is european and basic - all we needed and very nice. Safeway is close to make your own dinners and teh lodge is located across the street from the beach.

Thank you for your great review! We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay here with us, and that we met your expectations. Although the room you had stayed in did not have any kid sized beds, we are glad that the large cozy Eastern King bed was big enough, even with the kids! Please come see us again, and we can walk you through some other room types and cabins you may be interested in!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cedar Lodge. The owners were great and the property is so nice. It is right across from the lake so you can walk over and access lake easily. The rooms have all been redone and are excellent. The breakfast in the morning is also very good with a lot of healthy choices and all very fresh. This is not stale day old stuff, all real good. I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back on second floor with a partial lake view. It was just for the two of us...

We recently stayed here for 2 nights in October. The setting and location of the Hotel was perfect. It was clean and had everything we needed. We had friends in other cabins so we were able to see other types, they all looked great.

There are so many nice "extras" to this property. The continental breakfast was very nice, The bar area, albeit small, was cozy and inviting, Alan, the owner was very nice. There were many things outside that we did not have time to enjoy, but would have been nice to use, if we were there with our family or had been able to stay longer, like the fire pit. I would definitely recommend this hotel. We also ate at the restaurant and the food was delicious.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin #2 which was closest to the street and the workers' room. The street noise w...

Thank you for your review! We very much enjoyed having you stay with us. It's too bad you did not have a chance to stay longer and was able to use the fire pit! Yes, our single studio cabins are the least expensive, and although we do try to stay quiet during the morning hours, sometimes we can get carried away with our chores. Come see us again!

We chose this amazing hotel based on all the other reviews on TripAdvisor. We were so pleased to find all was bang on. A very warm welcome on arrival, a lovely little chalet to stay in, with all we needed. Our group was 3 adults and one little one year old. We had enough space whilst indoors, not that we were on much. Well appointed kitchen, all very nice. The smores by the fire pit in the early evening were a lovely touch and there were plenty of activities on hand to keep family entertained. Nearby access to a very nice beach on the lake was very handy. Everyone there made every effort to make us feel welcome. A fantastic location with the highest recommendation!
