“Not goin' back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

When we arrived there were a couple of ants on the floor. We vacuumed them up. They multiplied. We vacuumed the entire place, removed the hall way runner carpet and found a bunch. Vacuumed more. We could not walk around without shoes. We called the management and they came the next day and let off bug bombs in our cabin. This meant having to pack up our food and stuff and get out of the place for a couple of hours. When we returned, the windows were open, bug spray cans scattered around and you guessed it, many ants crawling on the floor....alive.

Not my idea of a good vacation.

We won't be back.

About the town of Tahoma. We aren't outdoorsy people, so Tahoma is not a good location for us. If you're into hiking and stuff, you'll like the location. If you want shopping and dining, book something in South Shore.

Natalia is great! We booked ahead and had the whole resort to ourselves (8 cabins). Many
options to suit all our different families. Just like we each had our own house, but yet right together for 3 days. Lots of beauty and funs things to do in the area.

Definitely south of expected. We had one of the smaller cabins, so I can only speak to that. My wife stayed in the downstairs bed, which turned out to be a well worn fold-out double (not big enough for two adults). I had to climb a near vertical ladder to reach the "loft," which was nothing more than another double mattress on the floor and no room for anything else but a pint-sized table lamp that also was on the floor next to the mattress. In reality, this was nothing more than a crawl space with a mattress in it, and an A-frame ceiling above your head that couldn't have been more than 3-feet above the mattress. I might as well have been in a pup tent. Of course, if you like changing your clothes while laying flat on your back, and clambering down a ladder in the dark of night to use the bathroom, it's fine!!

Room Tip: Get a hotel room in Tahoe City instead.

This cozy place is located very near Homewood ski area and a well stocked grocery. The cabin we rented (Jeffery duplex) had an excellent kitchen, with a nice dining area. The living area was comfortable and had a TV which we did not use. We did avail ourselves of the free WiFi which was much appreciated as we had three laptops for five people. The place was very clean and odor free, and the single bathroom was stocked with soap, shampoo, tissues, and plenty of towels. The manager, Natalia, was very pleasant and accommodating.

We loved this place!!! Nestled in the trees, it has a rustic feel, but they have everything you could need at hand. Any kitchen gadget I needed was in there, and they even have a cute outdoor picnic table and bbq pit at each cabin. We loved using the hot tub and pool, and we were close to everything . Great time!!!

We've stayed at Tahoma Lodge 3 times, two of which we stayed in the Aspen Cabin.
Love the Aspen Cabin with the cozy loft, and two couches, one of which is a futon.
Great stone fireplace and full kitchen. Being Vegan having a kitchen to cook in
was critical. Many great meals, warm fires and quiet evenings...
One reviewer commented that while in this cabin, the loft was hot and the downstairs was freezing. This problem is easily solved by turning on both fans provided. Keeps
air circulating and heat even. Cabin was super clean, bathroom was comfortable.
More clean towels that we could even use... Would and have recommended it to many friends.
