The Fireside Lodge is well-known to be the Most Pet-Friendly Lodge in Tahoe! We accept ALL pets!

With most of our guests traveling with dogs, the Fireside Lodge offers indoor and outdoor space for your dog to relax and roam. Lake Tahoe is one of the best places to take a vacation with your dog and explore beautiful parks, beaches, and scenic hiking trails during your stay if you desire.

Your dog is just as treasured of a guest as you are. Each dog is welcomed with a pet package that includes a water bowl, food bowl, pet blanket, towel to clean their paws, dog-clean bags, and of course, a welcome treat! We also have contacts of local dog & cat sitters that may be helpful.

Dogs/pets MAY be left unattended in the room. Pet Courtesy information is reviewed upon your arrival.

Our “Pet Clean Charge” is 35 USD per night for the first dog/pet; 15 USD per night for each additional dog/pet. This fee applies to all pets, including cats or other pets.

Guest Reviews

Like staying with family. My wife and I have traveled extensively for the last 25 years. Not only was the Carta family the most hospitable hosts we have ever encountered, they were miles ahead of whoever was in second place. It made our annual visit to Fallen Leaf the most memorable of the last 20 years. Our dog Zoe did not want to leave. 5 stars isn't enough.

Homey full of charm and so much more than a Bed & Breakfast! I stayed in the Bear's Den for 2 lovely nights the last week of May before Memorial Day. It was perfect in EVERY way. Steve, Tracy, Olivia and Nick are OUTSTANDING hosts. All the inclusions made the price point very, very affordable if you take advantage of all they offer. The bikes were great as you can bike to the popular beaches and not fight the traffic! Wine and cheese for 2 hours in the evening and a huge firepit with all the fixings for smores. The game room was great, free DVD's for your room and even board games to pay and a sauna after a long day of hiking. Peaceful and HOMEY is how I would describe it. You felt like you were visiting family and not staying in a hotel. Tracy will show you around to all the features and Steve is there is do the "manly" things, like replace light bulbs and turn on the fireplace, that he's trying to conserve electric and gas bills on, but will gladly turn it on if asked. Breakfast served by Olivia was wonderful as they pretty much don't say no to anything if they have it! I will be back and will send clients your way! I am a travel professional and this is truly one of my best finds ever and that is saying something as I have been doing this for 25 years.

The BEST little lodge! From the moment you drive onto the property you get the impression that this is going to be an unique stay. Small 10 room lodge but packed with personalized touches from the orientation tour, hiking information, clean/fun decor room, breakfast table service, wine/cheese, and s'mores around the fire pit!! This is a family ran business and this family is SO sweet and kind! Special shout out to Nick and Olivia for making us feel so welcome!

Charm ! When we first arrived the staff was very friendly. They gave us the “grand tour” of all the amenities the lodge has to offer and there was a lot. They even offer bicycles to tour the surrounding area. The room and clean and comfortable. We stayed in the #6 Snowshoe Room and it had charm! Complete with a kitchen, fireplace. Location is great and I would stay here again. I promise you will not be disappointed in this place. You can tell the owners (family owned) take a lot of pride in their business.

Stay at the Lodge


Dogs are welcome in this hotel. We never had a dog that smoked in bed and set fire to the blankets. We never had a dog that stole our towels and played the T.V. too loud, or had a noisy fight with his traveling companion. We never had a dog that got drunk and broke up the furniture. So if your dog can vouch for you, you’re welcome too.
