Because coming to the mountains is like stepping back in time. The best of Classic Old Tahoe resides at the Log Lodge. With its honey colored log atmosphere and many creature comforts, tasteful appointments, luxurious amenities make the Log Lodge the perfect relaxing escape. The nearby lake access at Chambers Landing (with restaurant and bar) or Sugar Pine Point State Park, (with unspoiled natural lake shore beauty) both within walking distance provide the perfect balance of forest and lakeshore experience.
A past guest recently said it best, 'They broke the mold when they built this place. We stepped through the door and back in time, yet somehow totally luxurious. Authentic and tasteful log lodge furnishings; not even a little tacky. Very well maintained and very clean upon arrival. Has a grand desk if you really have to work, but sleeping on the killer couch by the stone fireplace is better.... The large property is very private, with great outdoor spaces to hang out as well; and for the kids to run around and decompress. All you see out the windows is beautiful forest. You wouldn't know you're just minutes from Homewood skiing, restaurants, etc. The best of Tahoe without the tourist crush. Can you find the hidden door behind the bookcase?'

My Response Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to your return to Log Lodge!
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday at this beautiful cabin- it was perfect for a group of 5 adults and five children ages 1-13. The kids had a blast and the cabin was the ideal backdrop for an unforgettable holiday with loved ones! Kids especially enjoyed the "play house" in the back!
The Log Lodge was great. Really comfortable and great for large groups. The place is really well appointed and has lots of history. We'll come back. The rental company Wells and Bennett was great as well, very helpful and accommodating.
PS: thanks for allowing dogs. Our golden doodle loved the acreage.
There is honestly no other cabins that can compare to this one. We had 6 people and a dog with us and had the best time ever. I've been looking for a cabin to go back snowboarding in February and the log lodge is booked. While sad searching for other cabins, nothing comes close. It had just snowed the day before we got there and looking out into the backyard to fresh powder was probably the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It looked fake it was so beautiful! When we pulled in the driveway, no one believed me that it was the cabin! Can't wait to come back!
We rented the Log Lodge for the week of Christmas, 2014. Two parents, two adult sons with one wife and one girlfriend, and two grandchildren spent a wonderful week at this unique home. Probably the most relaxing Christmas ever. The home, according to the tract map on the wall, sits on 3 acres of land. Lots of room to run around, explore, play in the snow. When we arrived, there was some snow on the ground, but we had snow on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. For small children, there's a little hill across the street which was perfect for sledding. Older children would probably want to seek larger hills, but for us, it worked out great.
The home, and in particular the kitchen, has everything you need including a blender, microwave, all the utensils, baking and cooking supplies for pretty much anything you feel like cooking. There's also a gas grill if you want to BBQ. The home was so comfortable for us. The sofas and big and comfortable in front of the huge fireplace. We ordered firewood before we arrived from Jason (530) 386-0415 and it was waiting for us when we got to the cabin. We ordered a mix of hard and softwood and that worked out perfectly. The fireplace doesn't have a gas hook up so you need to build the fire from kindling. There's an ax and cutting area available to cut the wood down.
The location is perfect on the west side of the lake. 15 minutes from Tahoe City and a short drive to Homewood. About half an hour from Squaw Village, so you have everything you could want to do nearby. It's not directly on the lake, but there's a 20'-wide easement that allows access to the lake across the street.
The home is filled with all kinds of antique memorabilia - some of it relating to the history of the house, and some of it just interesting. Everyday we'd discover some thing new we hadn't noticed before.
For Christmas dinner, we ate at the Sunnyside Cafe, just a few miles away, and had a great dinner, with great service. Figure about $40 per person for dinner.
We would definitely go back to the Log Lodge and can recommend it highly!
We had the most relaxing weekend with our family to celebrate a birthday. The cabin reminded us of a movie set and we felt part of something very special.
We choose staying at the Log Lodge (or as we like to call it "Shangralodge") because of the great location, the comfort, ease and great rate.
The interior decoration is fun and cooking either indoors or out is hassle free. Staying at the lodge recharges our batteries.
great west shore location, just across from Chamberlands beach. Bike trail is the property edge and runs for miles. Located on two acres of lovely meadow but is just off the hiway.
