We met Hannah, the innkeeper, who was very hospitable and accommodating. We arrived before the room was ready, and she offered us complimentary passes for walk-on access to the beach while we were waiting. She also recommended having lunch at the nearby Edgewater Bar and Grill, excellent suggestion. She's very knowledgable on the best hiking trails, restaurants, and activities to do in the area. Our room was comfortable, clean, and very quiet. We had a view of two backyards of local houses, which was just ok. It is a motel layout, with a quaint European facade. The building is two story, all room doors are outdoor. She has a very simple continental breakfast (muffins, bananas, etc.). There is outdoor seating available on a rooftop deck, as well as indoor the lobby area. The only thing we missed after a long day of hiking was a nice hot tub to soak in in the evening. This would be a lovely addition. I would definitely recommend this inn to others, as well book a stay here again.
Great tips by Hannah for less crowded (2-3 mile) Hiking trails during the busy summer season / weekends, here's a couple to consider that we really enjoyed:
- Tahoe Rim Trail (Castle Rock)
- Eagle Lake Trail
Also, after hiking Eagle Lake Trail, be sure to make a pit stop at the very popular Richardson's Ice Cream Parlour on the way back to the Inn. :)
