The Lodge

The original residence on the property was built by Ernest Pomin in 1938 and is decorated with "Old Tahoe" style furnishings. Breakfast is available every morning in the dining room or on the deck in the summer. In the afternoon, mingle with other guests, or meet new friends, over a glass of wine, cookies, and snacks during happy hour, or enjoy mulled wine and soup after a day of skiing. Let us help you reserve dinner reservations to the renowned restaurants Tahoe has to offer.

Beach Access

The Cottage Inn lies a few steps from one of the finest private beaches on Lake Tahoe. All of our guests are welcome to access the beach. Here you may enjoy sunning on the docks, swimming in the clear water, picnicking at tables under the trees, or joining in a rousing game of volleyball. In the winter months, enjoy a peaceful stroll along the snowy paths offering picturesque views of the lake and mountains, and of course there's plenty of skiing and snowboarding nearby.
