“Two old guys who ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

My buddy and I have been staying at Doc's for the past 5 years (usually for a week+ during ski season) and it is, by far, the best kept secret in Tahoe. Comfy beds, full kitchen with table, big bathroom with lots of hot water, good heater and new flat screen TV. Clean and very neat with old timey ambiance. Seperate cabins, so you don't have to put up with noisy neighbors. Close to the casinos, and a short six-minute walk to the Gondola. Owners are great, fun and very accomodating. Super rates!! Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Went to Tahoe for a few nights to celebrate my Birthday and stayed in cottage TWO and LOVED it. The owners are super friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable!! Cottage 2 is clean and had everything we needed for our trip!! Great place for the price!! I will definitely be back!! :) Especially in the summer to have a BBQ!!

Our family made our yearly trip to Tahoe last weekend and stayed at Doc's cottages. Angie & Lloyd were so nice and made us feel right at home! The online booking was easy, and Angie even called me to afterwards to make sure everything was correct since we booked multiple cottages. We had a total of 5 cottages in our group, and they were nice, clean and close to everything! It was nice to be within walking distance of Harvey's since it was so cold out! They even made sure we knew of the local specials, and made our stay very plesant! The cottages were very cozy and clean. Perfect for a low key family trip to the snow. We will definately be returning to Doc's Cottages next time :)

Room Tip: Cottage # 2 and # 4 were my favorites of the 5 cottages we had booked :)

For the price of 65 a night it's a fine place. The bed in cottage 2 was comfortable. The cottage has a very strong smell. Cleaning supplies I guess. The place is fine. Maybe could be a bit cleaner and upgraded. I don't think we will be back.

Ok, so myself and a few friends set up this great trip to stay in Tahoe for New Year's and attend the SnowGlobe Music Festival. We originally had planned (both budget and otherwise) to stay at a cabin of an acquaintance, so imagine our panic when we learned just a few days before Christmas that it had fallen through. We frantically began searching for a place to stay and were quickly losing hope that we would find anything without amassing a small fortune on a deposit or sky-high hotel room rates. Enter Doc's Cottages, our savior. We booked their last room on a whim and that was the last stressful event of the trip. Lloyd and Angie were just great, got us everything we needed (dishes, coffee, soap, whatever), and were just genuine people looking out for their guests. I feel like I want to go back just to hang out with them. It was convenient to pretty much everything (casinos, the lake, shuttle lines, chair lifts) and the full kitchen was a dream for a budget-friendly trip. I'd also like to applaud the construction of the cottages for a group of quasi-rowdy adults who like to blast some bass from time to time. You couldn't even hear it outside (and we checked multiple times). They just don't make them like that anymore. Sometimes things just work out and I give all the credit to Doc's.

Room Tip: All the cottages are different, so be sure to check their website for the floor plans and pick the o...

The cottages are excellent value for money, especially for families. Situated next to Harvey's on a very queit road, I was within a couple of minutes walk to the Lake and to all of the action including shops, casinos and skiiing. Lloyd checked me in, and he couldn't have been more helpful. Although traveling alone, the cottages would be perfect for a family, having a decent bathroom and kitchen facilities. The place was clean, tidy, and even had fire place. Highly recommended.

My sister and I so enjoyed staying at these quaint cottages. Our cottage, # 1, with two queen beds was cozy and warm, our kitchen, tho small, served our needs perfectly.
Lloyd and Angie (owners) were both warm and friendly to us and so willing to accommodate our needs, like extra blankets and kitchen utensils as well as anything else we may have asked for. Loved the attached deck, Lloyd brought us extra chairs so that my cousins (# 4) could join us when we were enjoying the Tahoe fresh air. Parking is just outside your cabin which is also really convenient. The one long block walk to the Casinos and restaurants was and added convenience. Also the ski gondolas are just also within walking distance, just behind Harrah's. Staying at Doc's, will be the added treat to your stay in South Shore Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: Depends on your needs, all the cottages a basically the same but vary from cottage to cottage. Speak...
