My wife and I booked a stay with Shooting Star B&B, not totally knowing what to expect, but desperately needing a break from our hectic life. Bill and the Shooting Star delivered in spades. It was an absolutely wonderful stay, and a great place to go slow down, have good conversation, reconnect with loved ones, or just enjoy a tailored gourmet quality breakfast. The Bay room was perfect; warm, inviting, clean, and comfortable. The views from the common area upstairs are breathtaking. You can literally sit there all day, chatting and getting refreshed. Do yourself, your life and your love a favor and check it out. One word of caution... Book two nights as you won't want to leave after just one.

We stayed at the Shooting Star B&B over Christmas and had a great stay. Terrific breakfast, friendly service and the accommodations were really nice. We will definitely be back if we do this kind of trip to Tahoe again.

A few days before our 2yr anniversary, I decide to surprise my wife with a special get away. She always wanted to stay at a B&B, so I decided to try one out. Bill at Shooting Star was so awesome, with great rooms, great food, & great company. I know we will be back. And it has made me think to look at B&B's again.

We stayed for a night and it was wonderful. Bill made arrangements to accommodate four of us in the Aspen room and we had a comfortable stay. The breakfast was nice as well.

Very quiet area and gorgeous views of lake Tahoe from the common area on the upper floor. Bed linens are the softest I've ever experienced, and the place is very clean and private. Everything in this B&B seems designed for relaxation, from the mini waterfall in the foyer, to the nature sounds therapy system in the room, to the aromatherapy eucalyptus toiletries, the in-room fireplace, and many more wonderful details around the room and house. Breakfast was amazingly delicious, and I appreciated all the tips on good local dining and best outlook points around the lake. All in all, excellent B&B and charming hosts.

Shooting Star was wonderful place to stay, close to the lake, beautiful room, fantastic breakfast and Bill the owner is great. We enjoyed two nights for our 25th wedding anniversary and Bill worked with us for a late check in. Would gladly go back if I come to the area again.

Bill provides a space that allows for much more than you might have planned. The bed I enjoyed was exceptional and the sheets were SO soft. Definitely take a walk through the charming, mountain-town neighborhood on your way down to the water. Carnelian Bay is a wonderful little nook with everything you could want, and Bill does a tremendous job of hosting, providing, and offering exactly what's needed for a memorable getaway! Thank you, Bill! I'll be back, for sure!

Shoorting Star was a great place to stay in a nice location, near everything but away from the traffic. Bill, the host, was helpful to us and was there when we needed him. His place was very clean, comfortable and had every amenity we could want for in a room and a meal. We will most definitely stay here the next time we make it up to Lake Tahoe.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Shooting Star. Although the rooms didn't have a view and the location wasn't mind-blowing (ie not walking distance to King's Beach), the service, amenities, Bill's cooking, the cleanliness, and the serene atmosphere more than made up for it! There's definitely heart in the way this place is run, and we'll certainly be back.

The only thing we wanted to do for our 10th wedding anniversary was to spend a romantic quiet weekend together. We found this little B&B on-line and took a chance after getting a great vibe when I called and spoke with the owner Bill. What a great guy! We felt comfortable and welcomed the moment we stepped inside. The Bay room was warm, cozy and oh that jetted spa tub! There were little chocolates waiting for us on the bedside tables. Little touches that meant so much. Breakfast was amazing as jazz music filled the air. We could not have asked for more. Our weekend was romantic, private and simply perfect. We will definitely return!

Shooting Star Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place to stay! It is impeccably clean, spacious, and comfortable.

We hadn't been to Tahoe in quite some time, and this was the perfect way to get us hooked into coming back. Bill is a wonderful host, and Amy cooked us a great breakfast of luscious french toast, sausage, fruit and OJ. Sitting enjoying breakfast with the two of them was like being among friends. They were wonderful to talk to and they take great pains to make sure the place is spotless! We stayed in the Aspen Room. The king-sized bed and sitting areas were wonderful, and the walk-in shower made for a geat place to unwind. We would not hesitate to recommend the Shooting Star to others.

My wife and enjoyed a delightful, comfortable 2 night stay at the Shooting Star. The Carnelian room was very comfortable and well furnished, and was on the ground floor. Wine time in the yard and then in the upstairs reading room was great. Aimee was a gracious hostess and a good cook. Breakfasts were awesome. We also enjoyed being able to walk to Garwoods for dinner. Thank you Aimee for making our stay so enjoyable.

Thank you so much for the great review, it was great to have you stay and we are so glad you enjoyed the nice weather in the yard!
4,4 su agosto 27, 2012
From the made-to-order breakfast by Amy to the Comphy sheets, Shooting Star B&B is a winner. The Carnelian room suited perfectly as it was on the ground floor, had lots of light and breeze access. No bath but a large, door-less, tiled shower was spacious. The great room on the second story has a kitchen with guest fridge, living room with lake view and dining table. We were so comfortable, enjoying being the only guests for 4 of our 5 days! There is a TV room on the ground floor but we never used it. Bill, the owner, is a friendly, gracious guy and when he isn't around, Amy is there to hostess. Only three rooms and neither Bill nor Amy stay there so the guests have the run of the house. And it does feel as if it is "your" home. Location couldn't be better; walk across the road to a beach or cafe or restaurant. Easy access to further North shore or West shore. Amy, having been raised in Tahoe is a fount of personalized information about where to go and where to eat. In all, a terrific stay.

Thanks for the great review! Glad you enjoyed your stay, we are always pleased when our guests can feel at home. Hope to see you again!

Took the girlfriend on a "surprise vacation" to North Lake Tahoe. After 4 years in Florida she wanted to see mountains again. Everything about this visit was fantastic, from the welcome from Bill when I came in to the great breakfasts made each morning. The room was great, reccomendations for dining and places to see in the area were great. We missed Aimee ( hope I got that right) as soon as we left. One of those places I know we will return to.

Thanks, it was really great to be part of the surprise, I hope the rest of your California trip was awesome. Hope to see you again! I know you want to get out of the swamp at least once during the year, haha. The mountains miss you too!

Shooting Star had spacious quiet rooms and served a delicious gourmet breakfast each morning. We enjoyed our stay there. When making reservations, we thought that it was right on the lake when in fact, it is a block away - but an easy walk. You do have to cross a busy street to walk to the lake. Reservations were easy and the customer service was excellent.

Thanks for the review! I hope you enjoyed our quiet neighborhood (1 block back!) :)

Breakfast was fantastic each morning of our stay. Amy was very knowledgeable of the local culture and activities. The Shooting Star is located about a block off the lake and a park that allows public access. We had a great time and will definitely return again.

The hosts are really good and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I was supposed to checkout at 4.30 a.m. and could not be there for the breakfast. So the hostess baked muffins to eat later.Couldnt ask for anything better. The rooms are very nice. Watermans landing for canoe and paddle board rental is two min walk. Its off the main road which makes this a quiet place to live and well suited for family.

Shooting Star B&B is like staying with family or friends, without the family drama. Bill, the owner, is very friendly and warm, and respectful of each guest's desire to connect or be alone. The house is very comfortable; we stayed in the Aspen Room upstairs which was very quiet and worth the extra money for the king size bed and large space. The breakfasts were delicious and wholesome. If you are looking for an experience where you stay in a place like you were visiting old friends, this is it! If you check the yelp rating and reviews for Shooting Star B&B you will see many happy guests have rated it very highly (including me!).

Shooting Star Bed & Breakfast in Carnelian Bay, Lake Tahoe excels at providing the perfect atmosphere for total relaxation. The exterior is clad in tahoe pine wood, nondescript, yet perfectly suited for its corner lot location; the house blends into the residential neighborhood belying the sumptuous interior that awaits inside. Each bedroom is furnished with carefully chosen furniture pieces to enhance that particular room's location in the house. The Bay Room on the ground floor is aptly named for its sage-grey color palette as well as the wonderful set of bay windows that let in the early-morning light. The bedding provides a cozy and supportive place to quietly drift off into sleep while watching the gas-fireplace at the foot of the bed. A private bath with jacuzzi tub is the perfect way to start the day after waking. Bill Matte, the owner and on-site host, cooks up made-to-order delicious breakfasts each morning. He delights in having meaningful conversations with his houseguests, leaving the impression that a friend will always be waiting at Shooting Star for your return.

A beautiful place to spend your time, a lot of thought and time went into the designing of the B & B. The sheets were so soft, lots of comfortable seating all around the B & B to spend a relaxing day reading, or just looking through the many windows at the beautiful view of the lake, watching dvds, listening to music or playing games. Breakfast was wonderful, made when you wanted it. The B & B was walking distance to a great restaurant on the lake. When we were there we got snow and it was beautiful to see, but I think our next trip will be in the summer.

We stayed at Shooting star in December for 5 nights. It was such a nice experience! the room is spacious, bathroom is also big and there were plenty of nice amenities and towels. We love the fire place in the bedroom and the soft pillows! and love love the fact that there is no tv in the bedroom!. Breakfasts by Aimee was always something to look forward to, Aimee was so kind and helpful we feel so at home! We love the fact that there are only 3 bedrooms in the bed & breakfast, so you have your own privacy and dont always have to bump into strangers when you dont feel like socialising :-) All in all I would recommend Shooting Star if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing retreat. Will definitely go back when we visit Lake Tahoe!

Wow! What a wonderful end to a not-so-great ski day in Tahoe. When we got there Bill and Aimee were hanging up a decoration outside, but he came to our car to greet us and to make us feel welcome. It's so luxurious to have a gas fireplace and heated tiles in the room, and the whirlpool tub is, quite literally, like having a hot tub in the bathroom. The next morning Aimee made us crepes for breakfast (delicious!) and we had a wonderful breakfast chat with the other two guests and Aimee. It was definitely cozy to have such an intimate, home-cooked breakfast. The shared living spaces are well furnished. The sofa overlooking the lake was especially delightful. It's warmed by the sun in the morning and was an indulgent place to crochet from. Aimee was a super gracious host, recommending dining options and helping us with some technical difficulties as we were leaving. I wish we could have stayed longer!

We recently had a wonderful Tahoe weekend and stayed at the Shooting Star. What a great place. The room we had (Bay Room) was very nice and the whirlpool tub was great! The common rooms are nicely laid out with a view of the lake. Coffee, tea, cider available all day long and we had two wonderful breakfasts. Bill (the owner) was a good resource for information about the area and good places for dinner. All in all it was a relaxing and wonderful weekend. The Shooting Star was a comfort to come back to after a long bike ride or a hike. We would recommend the Shooting Star to those looking for a restful retreat from which to access all the great activities available around Lake Tahoe.

During only a two night stay, the owner made us feel entirely at home in a very comfortable room in a very spacious and well designed homelike structure. The major part of the top floor was devoted to an open kitchen where you could watch breakfast being prepared, and the dining and living room area with a direct view of the lake. Breakfast was terrific.

Lake Tahoe was one of several stops we had planned on our visit to California and we took a great deal of time in researching places to stay, particularly looking at B&B’s for their individuality, warmth and hospitality. In Lake Tahoe we didn’t want to stay in the sprawling mass that is South Lake Tahoe and wanted something more intimate. We were initially very impressed by the website design and layout, its detailed information and pictures and the Internet reviews. When we arrived, we were more than happy, as everything was as described and the Bay room was a very good size and the quality of the furniture and fixtures and fitting were very good, more than I would expect for a B&B that caters for skiers during the winter. A nice touch was the night-light in the bathroom that avoided us having to wake each other by putting a light on. Both my wife and I felt the layout of the communal rooms gave themselves to being used rather than just being for show. My only complaint on that score, was that there weren’t any instructions for operating the TV and when there was no sound, I wasn't to know that the only way to retrieve it was to reboot the TV, so that was a little frustrating. However, both Bill and Amy were perfect hosts and the breakfasts very healthy and satisfying, so we would have no hesitation in recommending Shooting Star as a great B&B in a lovely location in the slightly quieter, less manic area of Lake Tahoe.

Bill Matte has made the Shooting Star Bed and Breakfast the place to stay in Lake Tahoe. Bill is a wonderful host dishing up fabulous breakfasts and enjoyable conversations. We were very comfortable in the Aspen room as well as the rest of the home. We enjoyed hikes (recommended by Bill and some of his travel books) and the views of Lake Tahoe are breathtaking.
