A delicious lunch outdoors on the pier in Homewood at Lake Tahoe
Reviewed 2 months ago

We found this place by chance when driving around Lake Tahoe. What a great place. Delicious food, great service and a view to die for sitting on the pier. They offer water taxi for boaters. Great to watch from the pier. Can’t wait to go back.

Best friend's wedding and a magical stay
Reviewed 5 months ago

Stayed in the Sugar Pine Pointe Suite for two nights for my best friend's wedding. This room was AMAZING. It had a separate bedroom with slight water views and private bathroom with a lounge with beach/pier views and another private bathroom. Not only was the venue perfect for a wedding, the service amenities and accommodations were spot on as well. I gave my room to the groomsmen to get ready the day of because it was so spacious and they loved it. It was the perfect size for them to get together in and get ready.

dinner on the deck was fantastic! crab cakes, scallops, pork chop, steak all wonderful

This is a great restaurant for outdoor dining on lake Tahoe. the pier is lighted and the ambience lovely. New chef and great menu. Indoor cozy in the winter. Service was attentive but no rushing and good information on the food choices.

Beautiful Lunch and dinner on the pier
Reviewed 9 months ago

It is a great restaurant on the lake. . I have been there several times and waiters are attentive and the food is delicious. You can dine on the pier inside or outside. in the summer outside or on the pier. I have stayed at Homewood rResort since I was 5 years old. The west shore has taken it over.The resort is gone.

A mixed bag stay . . .
Reviewed 10 months ago

It was a mixed bag for our Saturday night summer stay here...

The Good:
*Right on the lake in Homewood with a beautiful pier and stunning view of the lake (when you can access it)
*Friendly front desk gal and really friendly parking lot/groundskeeper staff
*Roomy, remodeled bathroom with beautiful stonework & full bathtub while also preserving some of the pretty old wood finishes
*Fireplace & mini fridge in room
*Big, flat-screen television

The Bad:
*Be sure to find out if there is a wedding during your overnight stay (pretty much every weekend during the summer), as you will not be able to access the grounds while it's happening. Plus, the guests attending an evening wedding will be running the halls fairly late. My advice if you are not a wedding guest is to stay elsewhere.
*The extent of a coffee/tea pot is out in the hall as a shared amenity, and by the time we got there at 8am, there was no coffee or hot water left.
*The stunning view is accessed by going to the restaurant (or attending a wedding), so if you don't have reservations or a lake view room, you probably won't get to enjoy it much. Since the evening wedding kept us away, we were going to have lunch upon our checkout around 11:15, and were basically shooed off the empty deck/restaurant area because we didn't have a reservation for when they opened at 11:30. The guy said maybe we could eat at the bar, but by then, we felt pretty unwelcomed as hotel guests. So much for our getting to enjoy the view or a meal there...
*A porch light blared through our window at night, and even with the blinds pulled it shined around the edges. A blackout curtain would have been nice.
*The carpet was stained and old
*One wood finish I'd have remodeled was the wooden toilet seat (sanitary?).

I hate giving poor reviews, and I had very high hopes for our stay here, but we were ultimately disappointed. The 3 stars are given for the friendliness of the few staff mentioned & for the stunning view we enjoyed for those few minutes.
