Utterly charming! Each cottage is unique in style & decor. Cottages are enfolded in a forest garden setting, creating the sense of tiny cozy village in the woods. Wonderful breakfast, home baked pastries, friendly staff, & just steps away from the Lake Tahoe shore — who could ask for more?

Cottages are a unique cluster of Small cabins close to Tahoe city. There is an old tahoe feel about each of the cabins. Located off 89 a couple of miles south of Tahoe City and a short 2 minute walk from the Sunnyside Resort, it’s an ideal location for summer or winter.
