My family and I (myself, wife and 3 year old daughter) decided to take a last-minute trip to Lake Tahoe and wanted to stay on the less-commerical, rustic West Shore of the lake. We had no interest in the casinos & strip-malls of the north and south lake cities, just some quiet time in the woods and near the beach. It turns out Tahoma Lodge was the perfect fit.
I'd been to Tahoma before and adored the quiet town and local market, as well as the proximity to Tahoe City, Sugar Pine Point park and other west shore attractions.
I was a little apprehensive after reading one of the reviews here, especially because we were to stay in Alder cabin. I'm happy to say that the cabin was wonderfully peaceful, rustically adorned and very comfortable. I've no idea what noise the previous reviewer was referring to as the basketball court is tiny and was never occupied during out stay. Although the cabin was small, it was just right for our small party and included TV, DVD and kitchen. It was a short walk across 89 (a relatively quiet two lane highway) to the private beach and pier. Not only that, but the prices were considerably cheaper than Tahoe Lake Cottages, a similar establishment right next door.
The service was good: We had fresh towels every day and the staff was wonderfully attentive to our needs. Natalia could be reached at any time via her cell phone and, when we lost our room key on a late evening hike through Sugar Pine park, she quickly met us back at the cabin with another key.
Overall, a pleasant, relaxing stay and highly recommended.
