“Cozy cottages, great breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

We've stayed at Tahoma Meadows most winters since 2002. Dick & Ulli, the proprietors, are lovely and welcoming, and have put a lot into improving the cottages over the years. Accommodations are basic but homely and comfortable, and the breakfasts are the perfect start to a day's skiing. Last year we also went to one of the off-property houses that they manage (Cedar House), which was fab; going back to try out the Forest Chalet this year.
Only downside is that if you don't get breakfast if you rent one of the larger cottages (which you have to if going with a family). Also they seem to have increased prices quite a lot in peak season in the last few years, so it's now fair value rather than good value compared with other vacation house rentals.

Room Tip: Pets allowed in most of the cottages - see their website.

I found a special on this property through a Living Social deal for two mid-week nights. I contacted the resort after purchasing the deal and picked a Sun-Mon date at the first of Thanksgiving week. We stayed in the Berry Patch, which is a few steps from the office and area where the wonderful breakfasts are served. It is a cozy room with a king bed, gas fireplace, closet, small table, and a small, but very serviceable bathroom with a clawfoot tub. The gas fireplace was the heat source and it kept the room nice and toasty with the help of the ceiling fan. Our room even had some peekaboo glimpses of the lake. The breakfasts were served by super nice folks each morning (the owners were out of town for the holiday) and included very tasty egg dishes, potatoes, fruit, and pastries, with coffee, tea, and OJ. We spent our full day hiking the numerous trails nearby, including the Rubicon trail over to Vikingsholm. It was nice to be here during the shoulder season and having these places to ourselves- we just dressed for the weather. We were sad to leave and hope to return soon!

Room Tip: In the summer when the road is busy, I'd choose a room further from the office and road.

Special birthday for my outdoor guy so I made reservations in Tahoma which is near great hiking trails. The B&B Cottages are aptly named - ours was the Birdhouse and was decorated nicely to fit the theme. Bed was reasonably comfortable and we enjoyed the porch in front. Dogs are welcome in many of the cottages and even receive their own little basket complete with dog treats, poop bags, and more! These cottages are close walking distance to Sugar Pine Park, a great pizza place, and a general store. The best aspect of these cottages - a superb breakfast. Three kinds of egg dishes, fresh muffins, fresh fruit, coffee, plenty of orange juice, bagels, potatoes, YUM! And they sell their breakfast cookbook for a reasonable price. We will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: If you're taking your dog be sure and ask for a dog friendly cottage as not all of the cottages...

Tahoma Meadows is a lovely property, both peaceful and quiet. We've been twice now, both times during the summer. If you are an early riser, Berry Patch cottage is for you as it gets the morning light. But I also like the Bears Den because of the afternoon sun, and the deck outside of the room. They serve a delicious breakfast in the mornings, wine and cheese in the afternoon. The staff is very warm and friendly. Linda, the office manager, is just wonderful, and a valuable source of information for recommending things to see and do in the area! Looking forward to coming back next summer!

Pros: Most of the staff is friendly, cabin is in quiet location, Dick was very helpful with his advice on where to hike and on areas of road construction. Comfortable bed. Mini refrig is a convenience but it did ruin veggies and fruit because it was too cold.
Cons: TV in breakfast room is for the benefit of staff. Most of the guests want to "get away from it all." When I asked if, since none of the guests wanted it on, the TV could be turned off, the staff just muted it. That meant sitting with my back to the lake view if I wanted to have my back to the TV.
Cabin was clean when we arrived, but the daily cleaning seemed to be just emptying the trash and making the bed. The tub and sink were not cleaned and vacuuming was sketchy if it was done at all.
Cabin is in fairly good shape, but one window wouldn't stay open without something to prop it open, the screen had holes, the bath stopper did not attach to the chain.
Only was given one hand towel for two people. We did get two bath towels.

We stayed in the Sugar Pine cabin which was very spacious and just perfect for our family of four and the two dogs. We loved the ease of the gas fireplaces (even one in the bedroom); the kitchen was well stocked and the open floor plan made it easy for reading or relaxing on the couches, sitting at the huge dining table and cooking in the kitchen all at the same time. Great afternnon wine and snacks. We didn't have the breakfast since we were cooking in our own cabin. Owners were so gracious and we loved reading their story and other families' notes in the guest book.

Great cozy place - we definitely will be back.
