    Beautiful views

    The room was very rustic and had a beautiful view of the river. The outdoor patio restaurant served wonderful food and drink. It was located close to Tahoe City. I would definitstay there again. I was surprised that there was no air conditioning, refrigerator or microwave included in the room.

    Enjoyable riverfront location and a historic lodge. The atmosphere at the River Ranch Lodge is bustling during the day when rafters are coming off the river and the back patio is full of guests enjoying the bar and lunch/ dinner menu items but by night time the crowds are gone and guests are treated to hearing just the babbling of the Truckee River outside their rooms. Guest room decor is charming in a rustic mountain lodge way.
