We've known about the Tahoma Meadows B&B Cottages for years. It's in the same West shore community of Tahoma that we love. I've spent every summer there for the past half century. This was our first stay at the B&B and we were impressed with the quaint and cozy Tahoe atmosphere. The cottage we stayed in was adorable and clearly the caretaker takes pride in their job, as the cleanliness was evident. One heads up, if you're a light sleeper definitely choose a stand-alone cottage. These are vintage cabins so squeaking floors from the guests next door disrupt the peace and quiet, especially if you're a light sleeper. The breakfast was also delicious and Jeff was hardworking and fun to chat with. The reason we're giving an average rating is due to the unprofessional person who is supposed to check you in. We received no greeting, only annoyed facial expressions as we approached the counter and complaints from an agitated person that kept saying she'd been trying to leave for over an hour and wouldn't be able to handle our paperwork. It was bizarre to say the least. It was clear that either our early evening arrival angered her, or she was just stewing about something else and projecting onto us. We didn't engage because we were having a great time enjoying Tahoe and didn't give her the time of day. That being said, this person needs a serious customer service training reboot or a new profession where interaction with the public is limited. We were planning to return to Tahoma Meadows B&B with family in the summer of 2020, but what's the point when you can stay in a reputable, top-end Airbnb in the same neighborhood without any hassle from unstable staff. It's really a shame because otherwise this B&B is really charming.

We have stayed at TMC for a few nights every summer for years. After a 3 year absence, we returned. We’re we disappointed! The owners have turned the management over to someone who doesn’t seem to care one bit about the comfort and welfare of the guests. In fact she was down right rude. Our bed was ancient, uncomfortable and, unbelievably, noisy. It groaned every time one of us moved. We were told that they “don’t remove the plastic the mattresses are shipped in, to keep them from being soiled.” So much for comfort! oh, and if you don’t mind an occasional coil spring in the back, stay there! When mentioning the discomfort the next morning at breakfast, it was scoffed off as ridiculous. Will we ever return? NO!

Like all places in the Tahoe area, this is faulty rustic, mountain-themed, and informal. It is comfortable and clean, and the staff is excellent. We were also very happy about the breakfast--potatoes, egg bakes, French toast, etc. The wifi is spotty, but you are up in the mountains after all.

We were excited to find a dog friendly place on the west shore with such good reviews. While I'm glad that Tahoma Meadows has such good reviews, we ended up leaving a day early because we were not happy with our room. The room and bathroom were very small and we felt a little claustrophobic. The claw food tub was difficult to get in and out of and there was almost no extra room next to the toilet. The bed linen did not feel clean. Also, we had tracked in some debris on the bathroom rug and I shook it out over the tub trying to keep the floor clean. The cleaning staff left the dirt in the tub. We did like the breakfasts. There were several homemade items and the young man working there was very friendly and helpful. The wifi was very slow but that could have been because of the location.

We stayed in the meadow cabin and found it to be very cozy yet comfortable. The folks around are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good and the gluten intolerant me loved the flourless bakes! The only issue we had was with people who don’t clean up after their dogs. My daughter wanted to walk around the cabinsin the morning and literally stepped into dog poop at every corner!Not nice! Not the owner’s fault but folks with doggie pals- clean up!

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Tahoma Meadows! We recently booked a stay and grew concerned when the weather reports started showing that we were going to be there during a crazy snowstorm. The owner offered to re-book our stay at a different time, with no cancellation fees. We decided to take a chance and come anyway. Well, we did get snowed in and had to stay an extra night. They were upfront about availability and we got right back into the room we had vacated in our vain attempt to leave Tahoe. The charged us a lesser rate than I expected, which was so kind and very appreciated! They had a snowplow to clear the driveways, a guy with a snowblower, and hired extra folks to shovel out cars and porches. They really know how to take care of their visitors! They also had equipment to clear snow off of your car and de-ice the windows. Also, their breakfasts were really good! We are vegetarians and they offered two different egg bakes all three mornings we were there, in addition to home fried potatoes and something sweet, like banana bread or french toast. I really cannot say enough nice things about this place and these people!

I am more than happy to write a review for Tahoma Meadows B&B. This was the first time I've stayed here and I can say, without a doubt, that I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the west side. The cabins are charming, super clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We stayed in the Boat House which could sleep two in the front room, had a separate bedroom with a queen bed, small kitchen and bath with a clawfoot bathtub. The property is dog friendly and they provided towels, poop bags, food/water bowls and a sheet to cover the furniture and pillows while you were out. The hot water was hot and the gas heater kept the place cozy and warm. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The only thing we didn't try was the breakfast, but it smelled delicious! The property is beautiful and the owners are charming, wonderful people who really went out of their way for us! We had to check out a day early and they didn't charge us, which was super generous of them. A storm struck the day we left and between the time we left the cabin, to the time it took to get to Truckee, the I-80 was closed and the resulting traffic jam was miles long. We sat at the roundabout leading to the highway for 3 hours, not moving. The storm continued to get worse and it was starting to get dark. I frantically started calling hotels in the area and there wasn't a single vacancy in the whole city, nor was there are room for miles around. I had my 2 children and our dog with me and we were woefully unprepared to spend the night stranded in the car. I called Tahoma Meadows and asked if they had a room for the night. They had rented the room we had vacated already, but they rearranged things and got us a queen bed cabin. They gave us a futon for one of the kids and waited for us to make our way back to the property. We did not have to spend the night in the car, thanks to their efforts. I am so grateful for their kindness and generosity! I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area!

So, in the real estate biz, "cozy" means small...and these cabins are small. However, one does not go to Lake Tahoe to spend time in one's room. On this trip, over 90% of the time I spent inside the cabin I was asleep, so what matters is the amenities. Despite being close to the road, the room was quiet. The bed was big and comfy. Temperature control (in-room gas fireplace) was excellent and easily adjusted. Windows had slat blinds and curtains, so the room was dark when we slept and light when we were awake. The bathroom was a bit spartan...sink; tub/shower; toilet...that's it. But, the shower worked fine (which I can't say for the more expensive hotel I also stayed in on this trip); there was copious hot water; and the bath linen was nicer than I would have expected for this type of place. The included breakfast was nothing special (i.e. the usual offerings) but it was well prepared and there was plenty of it. The staff was nice and, overall, I think I got good value for the money I spent.

Excellent breakfast and right by the lake. I love staying here. Been twice in three years and it's really a terrific little spot. The rooms are cozy and pretty romantic for a couples getaway. I highly recommend staying for the breakfast. They really go a long way to provide a really yummy spread!

This is my wife and my favorite spot in Tahoe. We’ve been coming for about 5 years now, but this is the first time we have a dog to bring. The staff left us this awesome welcome package for our puppy and he loves it on the grounds. Now, I can confidently say that in addition to the great people, food and accommodations, Tahoma Meadows is also the best place to bring you dog.
