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.

  • Romantic Benicia Iron Beds with comfortable Serta mattresses with nice linens
  • Microwave Oven
