Dear Guests,

During this time of uncertainty, the Fireside Lodge assures you that your safety and comfort remain our highest priority. We are OPEN and intend to remain OPEN as long as our local and statewide authorities allow us.

Since our RE-OPENING on June 12 we have been very busy and have loved getting reacquainted with our returning guests and very excited to meet our new guests. We continue to provide a safe and clean experience for all of our guests and have successfully implemented our Safety Plan in accordance with CDC recommendations and guidelines offered from the state of California and the City of South Lake Tahoe. Our Safe Stay initiative has enhanced our cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19. We ask our guests to please help us with our safe campaign and wear face coverings in public spaces on property.

For travelers making reservations directly with us, we offer more flexibility with our updated cancellation policy — 24 hours’ notice to cancel (the standard is 72 hours) and extend your deadline to reschedule to 15 months! We appreciate your understanding and are happy to answer any questions you have.

We welcome our guests to the Fireside Lodge with the same warmth and hospitality we have always done.

With Gratitude,

Steve & Tracy, Nick & Tamera, Moo Moo & Little Maxwell

Amazing Stay - Cozy, Friendly and Great Location We loved our stay at Fireside! They have everything that you need, from a good size mini fridge/freezer, sink, dishes and microwave in the room, to a full kitchen in the main lodge for use. Breakfast is provided and it's such a lovely space to meet other people staying at the lodge. The rooms are lovely and full of character and clean. After a day of exploring, you can come back for wine/cheese happy hour, walk to some places for dinner and come back in time for smores! The location is great as it's short bike ride to Pope Beach and a nice walking trail behind the lodge. We can't wait to go back this winter!

A Great Get-Away in a Beautiful Place We just spent 3 nights at the Fireside Lodge in South Lake Tahoe, and highly recommend it. From the friendly innkeeper to all the extras they provide, such as free bicycles, breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese, and smores over the firepit in the evening, to popcorn for your videos, games, and books, - they've got everything! It's quiet, comfortable, and relaxing, away from the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe, and near good biking and hiking trails..We had a good time, and plan to return.

A Birthday Celebration My wife and I returned to the favorite B&B to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We have stayed here many times over the last ten years. It is pet friendly and there are many fine restaurants in the area. It feels secluded in the Tahoe Keys, but easy to get to shopping, Casinos and entertainment quickly. An excellent breakfast selection awaits each morning and Happy Hour with wine and cheese plates, as well as an Evening firepit with S’mores Is a welcome close to the day. A special thanks to Steve and Tracy, owners for making all guests feel like family. We highly recommend this B&B to anyone coming to South Lake Tahoe. Bob and Pati M.

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.
