The Best! Our hosts, Tamara, Nick, Steven and Tracy made sure our stay was the best it could be! For starts, we were greeted with a glass of wine and a tour of the property. That's the way to welcome your guests, I say! The property is beautifully appointed with lots of antiques and special touches throughout. We stayed in the Pioneer Room, cozy and comfortable. The kitchen nook window looks out into the woods, making it great cat TV if you bring your kitty along, like we did! Breakfast was delicious, but my favorite time of the day was happy hour by the fireplace. The wine flowed freely and nice nibblers to go with it! An unexpected treat was dinner on the patio cooked by chef Nick for all the guests one evening! It was all those personal touches as well as the perfect location, that will keep us coming back for more! Thanks, guys!

Perfect location adjoining the National Forest, clean, cute, cozy The Fireside Lodge is located just a mile or so south of Camp Richardson on the west shore of Lake Tahoe...perfect place to experience Fallen Leaf Lake, Emerald Bay, Eagle Falls, Mt. Tallac and much more. Dining options are very close...but the real joy of the place is it's quaint, clean, updated rooms, the free breakfast, and outside area with a gazebo, tables and chairs and a fire pit to make complimentary somemores in the evening. Bicycles are available for free and the Fireside is located very near the bike path. Complimentary wine and snacks are also provided. Each room is unique and decorated with a mountain theme...and very clean! The hosts, Steve and Tracy, Nick and Tamara and the whole crew are REALLY nice and very helpful. It's a great place to stay at a reasonable price.

Warm Welcome and Safe Stay We stayed two night in the Pioneer Room. For breakfast the lodge had two dining rooms, an outdoor eating area, or you could eat in your room. The owners served guests and were mindful of protocals for covid safety. For relaxation, there was a game room, relaxation area with sauna, an ourdoor firepit and picnic tables for enjoying moderate October weather. The property was about fifty feet from the exensive bike path that reaches into town or out beyond Camp Richardson. They had a rack full of free bicycles for gueast use. Hosts were wecloming and informative. Rooms were comfortable, well kept and had a kitchen nook.

Very nice people Stayed Oct. 2020 for 1 night. The owners and people who work here are the nicest and most accommodating people we have ever come across. They knock themselves out to make sure you are comfortable and have a good stay. Pet friendly - we met a few very friendly dogs. The grounds are clean and landscaped with flowers all around. If you have kids, there are lots of fun activities for them. Good place for families.

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.
