“Quaint and Convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The owner accommodated our late arrival (11:30pm) and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in cottage 9. Origonally built in the 1920s, the cottage has vintage knotty pine walls, which made it seem like you were in a cabin in the woods. Perfect for what we were looking for. Cottage 9 has two beds (one in it's own room, the other in the front room). There was a long, narrow kitchen, with a fridge, oven, stove, microwave, coffee maker, and dishes. The bathroom had a tub and shower. It was clean. The only complaint about that is that there were no hooks for towels or shelf for toiletries. There is a nice, private porch/deck with a BBQ to use, and your own parking space. The cottage is a short, two block walk to the Lake Tahoe beach, and just steps to the casinos. Over all, our stay was great! The owner was very nice, accommodating, and welcoming. We definitely recommend Doc's Cottages and will stay there again!

Room Tip: Cottage 9 is great for two couples or a family.

Thank you for your review of Doc’s Cottages. It seems like you had a wonderful stay with us.

It’s great that you enjoyed Cottage 9. Each of our cottages has its own character and it’s great that it added to your enjoyment of the trip. Some guests come back year-after-year and always request the same cottage.

Thanks for your feedback about the need for hooks and a shelf in the bathroom, which is useful to know. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests’ experience.

We’re glad that you had a fun trip and hope to welcome you back again soon!

What a great place to stay. Walking distance from everything. Cute cottages, ours (#2) had been remodeled so it was very nice even had an electric fireplace which was very romantic. Free wi fi so we could upload pics of our vacation. Loved the patio for BBQing. My sister who stayed at the Harvey hung out at our cottage more than her room. Angie was very nice to talk to and if you have any questions she'll have the answers, hopefully next time we go up Lloyd will be there so we have the chance to meet him. A friend recommend it to me and I recommend the cottages to everyone.

Room Tip: #2 for a couple is perfect

I've gotten to know the neighborhood up there being a ski pass holder and for many years we had a home at a certain now nameless place. For the past two years we've been looking for a new weekend home and we finally found it. Doc's Cottages has the old Tahoe feel yet right next to the nightlife we enjoy and walking distance to the mountain amenities. Clean and efficient with a friendly staff that immediately had us feeling like family.

We had a great stay at Doc's Cottages, We only wish we had more time to stay and enjoy. Our room was very clean and newly updated, We liked the fact that they had dishes and a microwave and oven/stove combo. The owners are very friendly and hospitable, they even had the fire place going for our arrival, being it was our anniversary. I thought that was sweet. When we were running late they did not rush us to arrive and check-in, instead they said to enjoy our stay and take our time to arrive which made me feel more at ease and i was able to enjoy my evening with out felling pressed for time. We will surely stay here again. so glad they updated such a historical part of Tahoe and not let it fade away.

I sure was lucky to happen upon this charming little cottage in the woods. Old time charm with lots of up to date amenities, (big flat screen TV, electric fireplace, larger than average mini-fridge, and a microwave)! The inn-keeper was very friendly and helpful, she even turned the heat up in anticipation of our late evening arrival and then made sure we had all we needed for our kitchen by way of cookware and utensils! Quiet because it's not on the main drag-strip, but literally only a couple of minutes to walk to Heavenly Village! Cannot say enough good things about it! We will definitely book here again when we return next!

Room Tip: Full kitchen, but not a big selection of cookware, so if you plan on cooking your meals, come with a...

My family and I reserved four cottages they were nice and clean. Angie and her husband were very attentive to us. Her husband gave us some good tips of things to do and places to eat. We were within walking distance to the casinos. We will definitely stay again next year. It's dog friendly place.

Room Tip: I love rooms 2, 4, They have been remodeled nicely. Room 5 is the bigger one
