    Anniversary Getaway

    Overall good experience except that only source of temperature control was based on fireplace operated by a thermostat which was not functional. Not a huge problem comfort-wise but could have added to ambiance for Anniversary stay.

    We loved our little cottage in the Tahoe Woods. Excellent access to Lake Tahoe, bike and kayak rentals, hiking paths, and the little market that had everything. We loved the breakfast that was carefully served each morning - delicious! Very nice people operate this great lovely place. One more thing - when it lights up at night, it looks like a fairy tale.

    Cozy cabin weekend

    Loved our stay! Nice amenities and details like flashlights, texting us to find out arrival time, the best breakfast delivered to our room each morning and a great location!

    Great place, would like to stay again

    Enjoyed every minute. Great location, and wonderful hosts. Breakfasts were really, really good. The lake is a very short walk, and a market and other food options also a short walk.

    The Cottage Inn is absolutely amazing, and it goes beyond the amazing rooms and the free breakfast. I had a reservation for a Thursday night and Friday night, but snow had me trapped in reno for Thursday night upon landing. Getting to Tahoe was a miserable experience, and i asked The Cottage Inn if they would be able to shift my reservation over to Friday night and Saturday night so i could spend the same amount of time there. Totally unexpectedly, they agreed AND upgraded me at no additional cost. I couldnt believe it and theyre generosity totally changed my trip. I'm super grateful for them and how they worked with me and I cant wait to come back again. These people are kind, hospitable, and run a great ship. The rooms are perfect, clean, and well-priced. Cant wait to come back.

    The minute we pulled into the property, I was delighted. The grounds are well kept, each cabin so unique. It's a perfect little getaway in the woods. There is private beach access a short walk across a quiet street. The staff is helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and happy hour. A nice, quiet place for couples. Our room, Happy Camper was so cute and cozy, nice attention to detail. We visited in October, after the high summer tourist season.

    Beautiful cottages near the lake.

    This is a beautiful group of cottages with beautiful flowers surrounding their property. The beach access has great views with picnic tables, dock, and bbqs available. Bed very comfortable, breakfast good too.
