Mother Nature's Inn

Tahoe City

Located in Tahoe City, 2.4 km from Lake Forest Beach, Mother Nature's Inn provides accommodation with free WiFi and free private parking.

At the inn each room comes with a desk, a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom. Everything! The decor of the room was adorable, felt like we were in a log cabin in the middle of the woods. The bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. Little touches like microwave popcorn and hot choc were really appreciated. The location is great, right across from the lake and easy to drive to the ski hills nearby. Loved our stay and would happily come back!

The owner was so pleasant to deal with. He made sure we were comfortable and aware of everything In the area available to us. This spot is beautiful and definitely not what I expected. We’ve lived in pismo before and haven’t been back for a while. Knowing the area and what it has to offer Shell beach inn is the place to stay! The bedroom was clean and they thought of everything you would need. The bed sheets are extremely soft and the bed is very comfortable! They have a pool right outside with individual fireplace seating for two. The pool is very clean and the area maintenance is very well kept. It’s a must stay spot, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else when we come back to Pismo/Shell Dinosaur park is a 5min walk with a beautiful walk down beach area. The sunset here is gorgeous. Close to where we stayed were fantastic restaurants. We ate at Zoro’s and their breakfast is the bomb, a 2min walk.

Glen Ellen Inn Secret Cottages

Glen Ellen

Set in Glen Ellen, minutes from the Sonoma Square in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country, Glen Ellen Inn Secret Cottages features a garden and terrace. The accommodation features a spa bath. Bodega Bay is 46 km away. Really liked Glen Ellen Secret Cottages. The room and the garden were very nice. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the day we where there, but the owner recommended another close by that was also great. We also very much enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in Glen Ellen itself. We will be back :)
