We enjoyed your stay. The downstairs room has a individual heater, just turn it on to a low setting when you arrive and it will make the room very comfortable. Thanks again for the booking, looking forward to having you back!

About the neighbourhood
The town of Strawberry is a great little retreat. The town is small but packs lots of character. With the river at your back door, the sound of rushing water is fantastic. The two main facilities in town are the Market and the Strawberry Lodge. The market has all the basics plus great coffee, atmosphere and local vibe. The Lodge has a great bar and restaurant and is a great little hideaway. Within minutes of the property are great hiking and nature trails including echo summit and echo lake, fallen leaf and much more. The Lake Tahoe Basin with the lake, Casinos, shopping and restaurants is down the Mountain about 25 minutes away.
