There are so many dog-friendly lodgings at Lake Tahoe that we can’t begin to inventory them all, but we can certainly point out a few favorites, as well as places to go and things to do with dogs in winter. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing come to mind first, of course, but if you’re not a practitioner, no worries: in the past few years, miles of plowed walking/dog-walking/biking trails have made their debut around the lake. more »

Why walk when you can ride? OK, lots of reasons…But both you and your dog will enjoy the novelty of a lift-assisted hike at the Northstar California, Palisades Tahoe or Mammoth Mountain ski resorts, all of which welcome four-legged passengers in their enclosed aerial conveyances. There’s not much time left this season to hitch a ride, so better get those paws in gear! more »

You don’t have to be a skier or snowboarder to enjoy Lake Tahoe in winter: this year’s abundant snowfall has created a snowy wonderland for all, four-legged family members included. For five-paw treatment, book a room at the mid-mountain Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe at the Northstar California mountain resort. more »
As anyone coming up to Lake Tahoe from sea level knows, that first day of hiking above 6,500 feet is a pant-inducing endeavor. But did you know that you (and your dog) can “cheat?” more »

Lake Tahoe dogs
After checking out the North Lake Tahoe scene, we at DogTrekker.com figure there are as many dog-friendly places to stay in as there are establishments that turn away canine guests. Dog-friendly vacation rentals abound, and if you’re a B&B enthusiast, you’ll be touched by the dog-friendly welcome and activity suggestions that come with at stay at Tahoma Meadows B&B Cottages on Tahoe’s West Shore. For an elegant overnight experience, cozy up in a cabin at Cedar Glen Lodge or sample the lux life at the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, perched on a mountainside at the Northstar California mountain resort. more »
Tahoma Meadows
Tahoma Meadows
There’s nothing like an old-style cabin to impart a sense of place at Lake Tahoe. We have a few dog-friendly favorites, starting with Tahoma Meadows Bed & Breakfast Cottages on Tahoe's West Shore, a semi-secret place that has developed a loyal following among outdoorsy couples and families traveling with their four-legged friends.  more »

When only a traditional hotel will do, we can suggest several, in several price ranges. If you can afford to put on the Ritz, the five-star Ritz-Carlton Tahoe is poised to roll out the red carpet for you and your pet. On the North Shore, the Larkspur Hotel Truckee-Tahoe and Cedar House Sport Hotel, both in Truckee, offer luxury accommodations with lots of extras. more »
