"Family Friendly and Charming"

If you've driven through Tahoe Vista toward Tahoe City, you seen it, the little collection of cabins off the side of the road just past the Safeway. The Rustic Cottages, once the sawmill and labor camp of the  Brockway Lumber Company,  have been vacation cottages since 1925 and let me tell you, they've got this hospitality thing down!

Guests can borrow sleds and discs, croquet sets and horseshoes.  There's a wide variety of movies you can borrow (yes, borrow not rent!)!  There are BBQs to utilize and treats to enjoy.  They seem to constantly be making cookies and have fresh baked brownies on hand.  The Wi-Fi is free and breakfast is even included in your stay.  Guests also go home with a souvenir Rustic Cottages coffee mug emblazoned with the year of their stay to remind them to come back and enjoy it all again!

The central location of the cottages means close proximity to Lake Tahoe itself in the summer (it is across the street) and a short haul to Northstar, Safeway  and the cute little town of Kings Beach (with the casinos just beyond it ) should you go left out of the driveway and Tahoe City should you hang a right.

The cottages vary in size and personality so you can get exactly what you need out of your weekend ---- there are tiny ones perfect for a romantic weekend without the kids, larger structures for a boisterous family getaway, and medium sized ones perfect for sleeping 3-4 family members.All cottages offer microwaves, TVs with HBO, coffee makers and refrigerators as well as a porch to hang out on.

One last note: The place is also dog-friendly, so bring your four-legged family members!

"These cottages are a steal"

Vintage but
not so rustic cottages across the street
from a public beach, with fireplaces,
kitchenettes, microwaves, refrigerators,
and decks. You can use the huge video
library, bikes, croquet and horseshoe
equipment, sleds, snow saucers, snowshoes,
and barbecues. Continental
breakfast and chocolate chip cookies are
complimentary; dogs are okay. For this
location and amenities, these small,
fresh, and clean cottages are a steal.

Nestled in two acres of pine trees in Tahoe Vista, California, The Rustic Cottages is warm, clean and friendly. The Rustic Cottages consists of nineteen old tahoe-style cottages, all with private bathrooms. Originally the sawmill and labor camp of the Brockway Lumber Company, the property was converted to vacation cottages in 1925. Our cottages are all different--each with its own charm and modern conveniences. The Rustic Cottages is centrally located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, across the street from the lake--and just a stone's throw away from a sandy beach and the water's edge. We're just minutes from great restaurants, shopping, North Shore casinos, and the worlds best skiing.
All Cottages Include:
* Romantic Benicia Iron Beds with comfortable Serta mattresses with nice linens
    * Microwave Oven
    * Refrigerator
    * Televisions with HBO and Video Tape/DVD Players
    * Coffee Maker
    * Porch with Beautiful Patio Furniture
Many Cottages Include:
* Fireplace
    * Kitchen
Little Extras Included With Your Stay:
* A Continental breakfast of homemade muffins, waffles, orange juice and coffee in our lodge every morning
    * Homemade treats, such as chocolate chip cookies, candy and brownies
    * Souvenir Rustic Cottage mugs
    * Over 400 video tapes for our guests to borrow
    * Firewood for cottages with wood-burning fireplaces
    * Barbeque grills for our guests to borrow
    * Croquet set to borrow, and a horseshoe pit
    * Sleds, discs and snowshoes to borrow in the winter season  
If you're looking for ultra-modern Lake Tahoe accommodations, this may not be the place for you. But make no mistake, the cottages are clean, comfortable and the Rustic Cottages is a very friendly special place to stay.
Add $10 per night, per person over maximum occupancy.
