This place was a find! Our hosts were and are a delight and went out of their way to make sure our stay was great! We would definitely return and have recommended this place to our friends.

So glad we stumbled upon this cozy B&B when planning a last minute visit to Lake Tahoe. We were warmly welcomed by Linda and Johan, who were lovely hosts. Every aspect of our stay had such a personal touch, something that you don't get with standard hotels. Good location and great accommodations. Be sure to take advantage of the evening happy hour around the fire pit. Will be back again!

Johan and Linda are wonderful and the service is fantastic. The accommodations are very small but the location is fantastic and you can't beat having such kind people greet you on arrival and help you throughout the stay.

Linda, Johan and their Heavenly Valley Lodge are the perfect combination of feeling part of the family with their hospitality, the home cooked breakfasts and the chats around the fire-pit in the evenings. We stayed at the lodge last week and it was our third trip in three years so obviously Linda and Johan are doing everything right!

We just returned from our stay with Linda and Johan at Heavenly Valley Lodge in South Lake Tahoe. What a wonderful experience we had. Linda prepared the most delicious breakfast each morning and was so thoughtful and accommodating to their guests. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and clean. Kitchenettes are stocked with microwaves, coffee maker, refrig and cabinets stocked with plates, wine glasses, etc. Each day when we returned to our room, a plate of freshly baked cookies was there for us. I can't say enough about this place. It felt so good being there, but that is mostly due to the positive energy that you feel from Linda and Johan. What a great team they make! Our daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception there and the grounds were lovely. They have a nice sized patio that worked perfectly for dancing. I love Lake Tahoe, and when I return, it will be to Heavenly Valley Lodge. Thanks Linda and Johan!!!!!

Outstanding hospitality. The owners work hard at making the place a wonderful destination. They are gracious and kind and the room was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. Five star for sure.

We loved it! From the moment we arrived we felt a very warm and inviting welcome from Linda and Johan, the owners. Warm, wonderful and very attentive hosts! Sitting around the fire pit during their daily 'happy hour' with beverages/snacks we just laughed and shared stories! Johan has put together this amazing huge book with hundreds of dvd's that you can choose from if you want to borrow movies to watch while you are staying there! We borrowed 2! The grounds were so beautiful with several patios to choose from amongst all the beautiful trees. Our room (room 104) was so sweet and cozy, very comfortable bed, and a fireplace! There was even a 'Welcome' sign on the door with our names on it! From the plate of cookies left for us on our bed at arrival...the happy hour....the amazing home cooked breakfast (with everything else offered you could think of!)...it was just a fantastic stay...and would definitely stay there again any time we are at Lake Tahoe! When we left we felt we were leaving our new friends! Thank you so much Linda and Johan!

Heavenly Valley Lodge is like Tahoe used to be. Retro old style Tahoe but perfectly maintained. The rooms are adorable and comfortable and clean. They all have a nice kitchenettes and fireplaces too! Linda and Johan are the nicest and most accommodating hosts you could possibly ask for. Linda makes a fabulous breakfast. My husband and I are vegetarian and she made us a wonderful veggie breakfast every morning. I even heard she makes gluten free food too! Happy hour around the fire pit at night was a blast!!!! We were able to meet the other guests and our dogs were also invited. I forgot to mention how beautiful the grounds are and how much time we spent outside with our dogs. They have a huge lawn area were our dog Dusty could play ball and run. Last but not least Johan has a sailboat and for a VERY reasonable fee will take you out on the lake. It was my first sailing experience and it was beautiful! I would highly recommend this lovely place and these wonderful hosts!

Very cozy B&B in great location. Very friendly and warm staff that helped to make the stay comfortable & enjoyable.

Johan and Linda are two of the nicest hosts. Rooms are clean an cozy. B&B is close to casinos, shops, and dining (within walking distance). In short great place to stay!
5 on April 27, 2014
We had a wonderful two night stay at Heavenly Valley Lodge. Each room is decorated with a different theme, has a fireplace and is very clean. Johan and Linda are wonderful innkeepers- very hospitable, welcoming, and friendly. They are very helpful in giving advice on where to eat or what activities to do. The breakfasts served were delicious and always a wide range of food available. We had a great time and we hope we can go back there again in the near future. Thank you Johan and Linda for a great stay at Heavenly Valley Lodge.
5 on January 13, 2014
We stayed here over the New Years holiday. All I can say is WOW! Lots of attention to detail to the room we stayed in. It was so clean, cozy, and comfortable. All the amenities were in the room. Fresh cookies everyday. The awesome fireplace kept us warm all night. Breakfast was off the hook. I am not a breakfast person, but I did looked forward to it. There was something new each day and everything tasted fantastic. I cannot thank Linda and Johan enough. They were so kind and took care of us. We enjoyed their company both at breakfast and happy hour. We will definitely stay there again and will let everyone know. Thank you gain Linda and Johan !!!!
4.2 on January 06, 2014
Linda and Jonah really spoiled us and make sure we have everything we need. The breakfast was always delicious! The room is very comfortable and clean. The location is perfect, very close to Heavenly. Also, it was one of the few hotels in Tahoe that is dog friendly, so we we're very happy to be able to bring our dog with us. Linda recommended a dog sitter while we we're spending the day skiing. We recommend it and definitely coming back!
4.8 on December 02, 2013
If you're looking for a quiet place to stay with easy access to skiing and the nicest hosts...look no further! Very clean and cute rooms. Bed and Breakfast with amazing home cooked breakfast! The owners are on site and make sure you have everything that you need. You can tell when someone loves their job or business, and these two are perfect for running and B&B!!!

We have stayed at many B&Bs and this one is certainly quite nice and above average in many ways. We loved that they were right next to a cozy high end eatery and pub. the room we had was a little small, but well appointed and very clean. I would have rated it 5 stars for everything if it was a little less pricey. I would certainly stay there again.
5 on August 02, 2013
A wonderfully warm and hospitable stay..loved every moment of it! I feel like family..cant wait to come back...
4.8 on July 28, 2013
Delightful, comfortable, inviting, relaxing. We had a marvelous stay at the Heavenly Valley Lodge with owners Linda and Johan. I cannot wait to visit again. I highly recommend.
5 on July 25, 2013
The Heavenly Valley Lodge is like non other. The hosts, Linda and Johan, are more like family. They make it a point to make you as comfortable as possible. The room was very clean and cozy. We will not stay at any other place when we visit South Lake Tahoe.
5 on July 24, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Johan and Linda are gracious and dedicated hosts, and the room was clean and charming. Breakfast was substantial, and had a nice selection from cereal, fruit, sweets, hearty homemade dishes, and pleasant company. Happy hour was very relaxing, not a rowdy booze fest like the resorts we witnessed, but like a nice visit with friends under the pines with hors d'oeuvre and drinks for all ages. Close enough to walk to town, but far enough away to feel removed from the hustle and bustle going on a few blocks away. As nice as the room and food were, the company was better, best happy hour I've ever been to. We would recommend this to friends and family. We plan on returning.
5 on July 18, 2013
This is a great location and I would recommend to anyone who stays in Lake Tahoo. The owners were just top notch and very friendly. They gave us great advice and again this is all 5 stars.

My wife and I stayed at Heavenly Valley Lodge in June and she surprised me with the trip for my 50th birthday. We had a great stay with Linda and Johan, and they made us feel so welcome, and at home. When we arrived they greeted us at the fire pit with wine and cheese and other snacks, and we talked for a long time just getting to know them. (it's amazing how much we had in common) When we arrive to our room there was a personalized door plaque greeting us, and fresh cookies on the bed. They also had a basket of goodies for us to snack on. The room was great with a coffee pot, microwave and refrigerator for our convenience. Every morning we would go to breakfast with Linda preparing a wonderful spread of fruits, pastries, and a hot breakfast of pancakes when we arrived. One morning it was eggs and sausage as well. Fresh orange juice and great coffee was waiting for us as well. We enjoyed our stay and we can't wait to get back to see our new friends, Linda and Johan
5 on June 30, 2013
We booked 1 night here but was able to cancel another hotel and stay two additional nights. Best decision we made. The hosts are very gracious. Breakfast is excellent as is customer service and their "Happy Hour" is like none other that we've ever experienced at a B & B. We stayed here in mid June. Weather was great and we wouldn't stay anywhere else.
5 on June 11, 2013
My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the end of May. On our door was a personal greeting of welcome and the hosts Johan and Linda were more like family than owners of a business. We felt at home immediately. Room was cosy and clean and the happy hour (hours) was a great way to meet other travellers and relax after a day of sightseeing. Food was first class and after two weeks travelling, staying at hotels and bed and breakfasts, this was by far the best. I include in that a 5 star hotel in Santa Monica. Thank you Johan and Linda for a great experience. Best regards Steve and Vivienne.
4.8 on April 08, 2013
Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, good food & new friends. Was great for our beagles..............Thank You.
5 on February 20, 2013
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. You will not find more attentive and caring hosts, I guarantee. My family lives in Tahoe and this is the warmest and best quality stay you will find if you are into that "Home Away From Home" feeling. The food! Incredible. We could not pull ourselves away from the mini lodge. You have our endorsement. Thank you sooo much for the best stay in Tahoe. Oh yeah, the rooms have themes! Make your reservation early and ask for your favorite room. We hope to come back many times! Thank you. Evon Schaar Kurtz & Bill Cameron

Wonderful couple who owns the place. Breakfast was like being home. Rooms were clean n cozy. Fireplace was a definite plus.
5 on January 17, 2013
Gracious hosts, fabulous bed and cozy bedding, scrumptious breakfasts, lively banter at cocktail hour. The best that any B&B has to offer from location, hospitality, cleanliness and convenience. We had a wonderful stay and were so thankful to come back to the warmth of Heavenly Valley Lodge after skiing each day. Owners Johan and Linda really know how to make their guests feel special!
4.8 on October 05, 2012
Enjoyed a college reunion at HVL. Johan & Linda are wonderful hosts...gracious, accomodating and just nice folks. The rooms were cozy and clean, the breakfasts hearty and delicious, and the hosted happy hour fun and relaxing. All in all, a terrific stay. We'll be back someday.
5 on September 29, 2012
Wife and I had a great time at Heavenly Valley Lodge. Linda and Johan are wonderful host. Breakfast were great and happy hour by fire pit was alot op fun. stay was 9/9 to9/13. Great weather and great golf and Restaraunts in walking distant. We will return.
5 on September 28, 2012
I think the people are phenomenal and so loving and giving. Even let my dog stay on a blanket on the bunk bed. The room is small but great wood and details. The expense was about 40 dollars over priced but the breakfast and love makes up for it. Great accomadating people who serve others with love.
4.8 on September 18, 2012
Ditto to the other reviews. Linda and Johan make a great team and really enhance the experience of staying in Lake Tahoe. The room was snug but very clean, the entire place is well maintained. Breakfast was more than we expected and Happy Hour was the icing on the cake!

Had a wonderful time, room was great, service was excellent. Enjoyed our hosts Linda & Johan.
5 on August 26, 2012
The best place I have stayed in Tahoe. Linda and Johan were the nicest lodge keepers I have ever met. They make an excellent breakfast each morning and offer a chance to unwind ever night at social hour. When we visit Tahoe again, we will be sure to stay there.
4.6 on August 18, 2012
We stayed two nights and had a really great time. It was a very clean, comfortable, and cozy room. Linda and Johan were very hospitable and run an excellent B&B. Breakfast was really good and convenient. The pier is in walking distance and there are many activities to do. Tahoe Queen, Fishing Trips, Boat and Seadoo rentals, paddle boat rentals. Or just go hiking and biking. A very fun getaway.

37 yrs ago we were in the Lake Tahoe area for our honeymoon. We came to Heaveny Valley Lodge to begin our vacation. From the first conversation on the phone to book our reservation to departure day, we felt the genuine warmth and friendliness from Linda and Johan. They think of all of the comforts of home that you need. Plus, they offer a relaxing sit by the nice gas firepit and chat. We walked to the one of the restaurants and had dinner while watching a beautiful sunset. Linda made a very nice. hot breakfast that had something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the fresh fruit from the local farmer's market. Thank you and miss you. Looking forward to a return visit.
4.8 on August 02, 2012
We stayed July 27-29, 2012, it was our first time to South Lake Tahoe. We were warmly greeted by Linda, and later her husband Johan. They make you feel like family right away. The rooms are nicely decorated and quite comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding, with a great variety, so if you want a hearty breakfast, or are watching your calories, good food is readily available. Also, great recommendations from Linda & Johan was much appreciated. The lodge is close enough to all the activities, we walked to many of them, but also far enough away to be away from all the hustle and noise. Each evening there is a happy hour around a fire pit which is great, a time to meet other guests and the owners. I highly recommend this place, and we will certainly be back there anytime we are in South Lake Tahoe.
5 on July 25, 2012
We stayed at Heavenly Valley for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. At one point during the week there were 20 of us staying there. I do not know where to begin to express how great this place is and the way Linda and Johan go above an beyond to make you comfortable there is amazing. The property itself it breathtaking, we spent hours at the numerous outdoor gathering areas playing cards, sitting and talking, and playing horse shoes. Night time was my favorite time when we all gathered around the fire pit. Linda and Johan joined us by the fire and by the time we all left they felt like part of our family. The rooms are amazingly clean, comfortable, and everything you will need is already in there. The breakfast every morning was amazing. Fresh fruit, pastrys, and Linda always has a great dish ready to serve, weather its her amazing breakfast bake, pancankes, or my son's favorite her amazing french toast. By the end of the week we can honestly say we were truly sad to leave and there were tears shed when we did. We can not wait until we get the chance to return to the lodge! Thank you again for making this important occasion the most memorable exerience our family has had.
5 on July 24, 2012
We had a 50th. wedding anniversary family gathering at the Heavenly Valley Lodge where 20 family members came together to enjoy the beautiful Lake Tahoe area. The HVL was the perfect place for all of us to stay. The hospitality was off the charts ! The breakfast served every morning by Linda was delish ! The rooms even though small, were very well maintained. The FREE movie rentals, and "happy hour" every evening were an added bonus. Johan/Linda were the nicest people, waiting on our EVERY need. I would highly recommend staying here, either as a large group as ours, or even a family. They made you feel like family, which made our gathering a wonderful experience. Thank you Johan/Linda once again for a wonderful time, and we will definitely be returning in the near future.
5 on July 18, 2012
A wonderful couple of nights with Linda and Johan. Did not want to leave, this place is on our list of going back. made a little video http://youtu.be/9IX0cdwBgTE
4.8 on July 02, 2012
We already miss Linda and Johan's exceptional service. We really enjoyed our hot, homemade breakfast each morning and our fireside nights with s'mores and wine. Our cute and cozy log room greeted us each night after our full day of traveling the lake. Prime location, peaceful, and great company. If we needed anything at all, Linda and Johan were happy to accommodate. We truly felt like family during our stay. We will definitely be back!
5 on June 18, 2012
Thank you to Linda and Yohanne?) my stay was made extra special due to attention to detail. A social fire pit added to the stay, as a lone traveller it was great to interact with other guests from all of the America and the world. My room was very comfy and the bed was shhhhhhhh sleep time.
5 on June 07, 2012
Heavenly Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. Very cozy, clean, and Linda made the breakfast so yummy. She asked us what we liked, and it was outstanding. Hope to go back soon. Thankyou Johan and Linda!:)

Located just down the street from Heavenly Resort on the California side, if it's a busy day on the slopes, you can ditch your car and take the shuttle from literally across the street from the Lodge that takes you in front of the ski entrance. It was a very pleasant experience meeting Linda & Johan (and Linda's son who was visiting and seen during breakfast hours) who had purchased the property only last year. They revamped the place by making it more homey and pleasant. There's even a stuffed teddy bear on the bed when you walk in. And two cookies on a white plate, covered with plastic wrap (flavor changes daily). Linda is a great cook who loves to take care of her guests by making sure everything is ok. Johan is very helpful getting the information we need and has a 400+ DVD collection, numbered, alphabetized, and with personal rating, which you can take out for free. Our room was one of the smallest rooms they have because we picked the cheapest one (#103). It comes with a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, flat screen TV, dvd player, alarm clock with iPhone docking station, gas fire place, standing shower, and hair dryer. Fits 2 adults fine, but probably no more, even a small kid. Apparently some of the bigger rooms have kitchen facilities inside the room, so you can cook. It was a really pleasant stay. It felt like we were visiting relatives who always wanted to feed us and made sure we were comfortable. Thanks Linda & Johan!
4.6 on February 13, 2012
We were more than happy with our recent stay at Heavenly Valley Lodge. Linda was so sweet and was more than happy to do whatever we needed. She and her husband have done a wonderful job renovating all the guest rooms, which have a very cozy feel. The rooms can get a little chilly, but the gas fireplace heats them up quickly. Breakfast was a big hit in my book. Linda asked the night before what we would like and it was always a big hit in the morning. I would highly recommend staying at the little B&B.
4.0 on January 26, 2012
I was lookig for a place to stay near to the hotel where friends were staying near Heavenly Ski Resort and tripped upon the Heavenly Valley Lodge, not even realizing it was a B&B. I was absolutely delighted with everything! My room was so nicely decorated and had it's own gas fireplace. It is pictured on this site. Has the rust colored bedspread. The beds and pillows were comfortable!!!! Just about any amenity that you could have wanted was there: microwave, little fridge, coffee maker, tissues, clock with iPod charger, bottled water. There were cookies or slices of a baked goods when you returned from the mountain. Speaking of which the bus to the gondola or CA lodge was literally right across the street, so very convenient. Johan and Linda had terrific recommendations for where to eat and discount tickets! You could walk to the restaurants and cafes. Breakfasts were delicious with fresh fruit, baked goods, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. I spent one rainy morning watching one of the movies from their library and crocheting while waiting for my friends to get their skis and errands done. Great conversations with Johan and Linda. Overall, I felt really lucky to have found them, am telling all my friends, am planning to return and bring some friends with me!

We stayed at the Inn over a decade ago and it was good. Now it's even better with the new owners. They are going to make this place special and we got to experience it. Thanks for letting us hang out with you and your family, it was awesome. Definitely worth going back!
3.8 on January 16, 2012
Each room has it's own personality. Linda and Johan are great inn-keepers. Very hospitable and make an effort to get to know each guest.
5 on December 25, 2011
Spent 4 days at the Inn. I had never been to Lake Tahoe and staying at Heavenly Valley Inn was a big plus. Linda and Johan were knowledgable about the area, are charming and have a beautiful Inn. Each room has a fireplace and are individually decorated, by Linda, who has added personal charm to each one. Check out the website to view them. Breakfast was overwhelming delicious and beautifully displayed. I highly reccomend staying at Heavenly.
4.4 on December 09, 2011
Between the comfortable rooms and pleasant homey feel the Heavenly Valley Lodge is a great little place to stay when visiting Tahoe. The owners are fantastic and the atmosphere is akin to it's namesake, Heavenly.
5 on December 04, 2011
We had an amazing time at the Heavenly Valley Lodge. It is a beautiful place in an amazing location. And the hospitality raised the bar of excellence for every other inn! Terrific! The rooms were clean, the location amazing (just a short walk to the pier), the food was varied and delicious (home baked items) the the lodge management exceeded my expectations. They worked very hard to make this a wonderful experience for my family.

Staying at Heavenly Valley Lodge is like being home away from home, cozy, warm and very relaxing. It was our first time visiting Tahoe and it made our stay memorable.
5 on November 09, 2011
My husband and I were searching for a quiet, relaxing and quick getaway for my husband's birthday. We booked our trip online at Heavenly Valley Lodge B&B and headed up to Tahoe. We were so pleased with our stay! The rooms are clean, cozy and each lovingly decorated not to mention furnished with their own fireplaces and kitchenettes. The owners Johan and Linda are beyond welcoming and inviting, supplying us with great conversation, wine and home made fudge. The morning welcomed us with an amazing breakfast spread...you won't go hungry! The grounds are a very convenient walk to the lake, shops and restaurants...not to mention a couple blocks from the casinos. The location is also ideal for winter months being that it is so close to the slopes. We were more than impressed and are very much looking forward to going back! Alex and Jennifer Perez

I just spent a few days at Heavenly Valley Lodge! The location is great. It is a short walk to shops, food, and the water. The rooms are very cozy and each have a fireplace which is terrific. There is an out door fire pit that is fun to sit around at days end and have some wine and chat with the owners Linda and Johan and make new friends. I can't wait to go back!
5 on October 14, 2011
My husband and I wanted to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary in Tahoe we decided to stay at the Heavenly Valley Lodge and a great decision it was. The innkeepers Johan and Linda were gracious host and knowledgable about the Tahoe happenings. When we entered our room there was a bottle of champagne and home made fudge. The stone fire place and wood trim gave the room a cabin feel. It was very cozy and comfortable. Everything in the room was new and clean. The location is very close to shops and dining yet feels secluded. It was nice returning back to the lodge after a day of sight seeing, quiet and serene. The fire pit was a great place to relax and unwind with a glass of wine. In the morning breakfast is served in the lodge, great spread and it's free. We loved our visit and highly reccommend the Heavenly Valley Lodge. We are already planning our next visit there.
