Nice

The room was very nice. We had 4 in out group with 2 queen beds so it was a bit tight. There is no AC so the room was very stuffy. There was also no closet so we were stacking our bags on top of the armoire. It would have been great with just 2 people. All in all our stay was wonderful though. There is pleanty to do at Lake Tohoe and everywhere we are was wonderful. Can't wait to go back.

Great vacation spot

Great place to stay if you are into outdoor sports such as skiing, hiking, and mountain biking. Short drive to either Truckee or Kings Beach. Only downside was that I was expecting more restaurant choices in the village, unfortunately not a lot is open in the summer season.

Jakes by the Lake in Tahoe City and Gar Wood' s in Carnelian Bay are both great restaurants! Both a little on the expensive side.
