Truckee: Cedar House Sport Hotel



We always try to take Stinky with us when we travel close to home but unfortunately, it tends to narrow down our options quite a bit. In addition, this particular trip was a last minute decision which made finding a place to stay even more difficult but thankfully we lucked out and found a room at the Cedar House Sport Hotel in North Lake Tahoe.

The hotel is based out of Truckee which is a quaint little town about fifteen minutes from the lake. It’s a perfect spot for a quiet and low maintenance stay (read: no cooking or cleaning required) away from all of the typical Tahoe crowds.

Besides being friendly to dogs, Cedar House Sport Hotel is also designed with sustainable features that have minimal impacts on the environment. Love and love. Keep Tahoe blue, right?

All of the rooms feature European style bedding with two separate duvets and no flat sheet so that you can sleep at individual body temperatures.

Hallelujah! That’s exactly what we need at home. They also provide beds for your furry children as you can see on the left.

The rooms have flat screen televisions so that the man didn’t have to miss one second of ESPN and the latest news on Johnny Manziel.

And the bathroom had a very simple, clean design with showers that have an anti-scald feature (also something I need at home) so you don’t burn your booty.

They also had a Keurig coffee maker which seems to be the standard in modern hotels nowadays!

Our room opened up to a really nice wooden deck with a few chairs to relax outside in the perfect Tahoe weather and the adjacent garden patio is where they set up a complimentary Happy Hour every day.

One of my favorite parts of the hotel is that they have their own top-rated restaurant, Stella, where they serve a delicious complimentary breakfast.

Similar to PlumpJacks, the breakfast included house-made organic yogurt and granola that were both really good and reminded me that I need to make some of my own homemade granola in the near future!



Overall, we had a great stay at Cedar House Sport Hotel; it was immaculately clean, the breakfast was delicious, and all of the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend it to a couple looking for a quiet place to escape to for some romantic quality time!

Even if it involves your pup! :)
