Fodor's Expert Review Sunnyside Steakhouse 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 two restaurants emphasize beef and seafood dishes but also serve fish tacos, a Wagyu burger, 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.

PROS

  • complementary continental breakfast and afternoon tea
  • most rooms have balconies overlooking the lake
  • lively bar and restaurants

CONS

  • can be pricey for families
  • noisy in summer
  • pricey entrées at steak house
