Fodor's Expert Review Sunnyside Restaurant and Lodge

1850 W. Lake Blvd., Tahoe City, California, 96145, USA Fodor's Choice

The views are superb and the hospitality gracious at this lakeside lodge 3 miles south of Tahoe City. All but four rooms have balconies and locally crafted furnishings; some have river-rock fireplaces and wet bars, and some have pullout sofas. Families favor the lodge for its proximity to kid-friendly Homewood Mountain Resort in winter, and water sports and hiking in summer. The restaurant emphasizes beef and seafood dishes but also serves fish tacos, burgers, and other comfort food. Be forewarned: this is not a quiet place on summer weekends, when the outdoor deck and bar get packed with boaters and bacchanalian revelers.
