“Great little touches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

I love unique, friendly and convenient places that make me smile, and this Inn was all of those things.
1) Great decor (mountain rustic that that the owner also sells in the fairly large furniture store in front), 2) The most pet-friendly place I've ever been to (a special pet sheet to throw over the bed, food and water bowls, treats and a dog park around the corner, 3) Very friendly (a personalized welcome note/board, helpful staff...) 4) Easy walking to everything that Tahoe City has to offer (historical sites, city park and beach, pier, lots of restaurants, shops, etc.)

Neighbors were a little noisy, but stopped after 9:30 pm. I've already recommended this place to friends, and I will definitely stay at this place again!

One of the best pet friendly hotels ever!!! We were greeted with 2 friendly ladies in the store and given our keys! Our room had a welcome message to us and our dog! Plus, cute dog bowls and an awesome blanket for boomer to sleep on!
Shower was nice and hot, room was clean and comfortable! Thank you!

You could easily walk past Mother Nature's Inn on the street and not realize that there is a hotel here, as the rooms are in the back of a furniture store. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay here and found that the somewhat out-of-the-way location really helped to keep things quiet and peaceful. We brought our dog with us and were pleasantly surprised by the additional amenities of the pet-friendly rooms - doggie treats, bowls, and an extra sheet to put down on the bed. Be aware if you bring pets that their policy is that you cannot leave them unattended in the room while you're out and about. This wasn't an inconvenience for us, as our dog doesn't seem to mind sitting in the car by himself.

The hotel has a nice website, but no online reservations. This led to the only hiccup of our stay, as the receptionist accidently booked us for Friday and Saturday nights, whereas we were actually planning to stay Saturday and Sunday nights. Fortunately, there were rooms available and everything worked out, although we did have to change rooms for the second night. Hotel staff were very accommodating in honoring our reservation and even offered to move our bags for us.

While the hotel doesn't offer a view of the lake, we found both of the rooms we stayed in to be quite nice. We liked the rustic furnishings and the free Wi-Fi worked very well. Our room had a small refrigerator, but if you want to microwave something, you'll have to use the communal microwave down the hall.

The hotel is very conveniently located in the middle of Tahoe City, and you can walk to just about any place in town in 10 minutes or less. Rosie's Cafe is right next door, and is an excellent place for a meal. The lakeshore is across the street and down a flight of stairs.

Overall, this was a nice, cozy hotel with reasonable rates and a great location. We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay here again next time we're in town.

When we arrived the women gave us our key. When we went to our room there was a naked man inside, apparently they have our room away. The women was very unapologetic and said, "What do you want me to do about it?". We were left with no room for the night even though we made our reservations months in advance. Lucky the women at the Tamarack Lodge saved the day, it was a much nicer place anyways.

Attending conference at nearby resort. Resort full. I just needed bed and shower. This room better than I expected. Decor was a little different to me; which was a plus. Clean in appearance. Light wear visible in carpet. Had a short sharp noise - source unknown -which woke me. I think it was another guest operating something outside. One night, I could hear neighbors yappy little dog. But window A/C drowned the yap well enough. The window unit runs constantly. That is a plus vs on and off cycling. I used no service. Parking good. Coffee shop nearby.

Stayed at Mother Nature's Inn last September which is the start of Tahoe's slow season, but awesome weather in my opinion. Rustic cabin furniture, small refrigerator, TV, full bath. All you need. Walk across the street to Lake Tahoe. Walk to many restaurants and shops. Perfect place for an individual or couple to stay.

We go to Tahoe often in the Summer since it is only an hour and a half from our house.

This is where we like to stay before the Winter and then head to our Winter getaway at Villa La Estancia, Nuevo Vallarta. We are looking to see if Mother Nature's Inn would consider doing an exchange with us for our Villa. Maybe an special offer to their Summer guests on where to stay in Mexico in the winter?

We were here during the off season so had no trouble booking the day-of-arrival for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday). It is in the perfect location to walk everywhere in Tahoe City, the west side of the Lake. We checked in at the Mother's Nature Store and were greeted by a very friendly lady. The store closes at 5, but just call the phone number (530-581-4278 or 800-558-4278) and the innkeeper will come check you in if you arrive later. They have only 8 rooms but the rooms are decorated with a log cabin feel and are very homey and comfortable. There is a coffee maker in the room and a microwave in the hallway. The room had a coatrack, desk, phone, plenty of shelves, was spacious, a great bed, was quiet, and had free, fast wifi. It is across the street from the lake. We would definitely come back!
