Fodor's Review

These charming clapboard cottages sit clustered beneath tall pine trees across the road from Lake Tahoe and a little beach. Cozy, simple, and well cared for, they offer an inexpensive alternative to a motel. Most have patios, and some have fireplaces and kitchens. If the cottages are booked, ask about the well-run sister property, Tahoe Vista Lodge and Cabins, just up the road. The service at both is attentive.

Rustic Cottages Review

The name describes this location perfectly. The cabins are very rustic and are a true delight. Service was really wonderful and the proprietors are delightful. Good location and a nice beach across the highway.

Great Little Getaway!

I totally agree with the two reviews posted! This is a great place to just relax,unplug, and not do much but enjoy the pines and the lake. Don't forget that they do have BBQ's on most of the patios as well, and the horseshoe pit is right off the little park in back. One caveat, make sure to book a cottage towards the back if you can. The highway traffic during the day can be a little noisy. Other than that... perfect!
