What You'll Get
A relaxing stay at an elegant bed and breakfast is much more enjoyable than visiting a trendy bed of breakfast, with its messy scrambled-egg mattresses and uncomfortable biscuit pillows. Enjoy a tranquil excursion with today's Groupon: for $145, you get a one-night bed and breakfast stay at The Shore House at Lake Tahoe (up to a $290 value depending on room choice and booking date, through June 15), located on North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe Vista.
Convivial hosts Barb and Marty invite sylvan wanderlusters to their soothing wilderness haven, a luxurious yet rustic, romantic bed-and-breakfast abode nestled at the base of the mountains on the North Shore. Experience pampered domestic bliss within the knotty pine walls of The Shore House’s nine rooms, each one graced with unique amenities such as a private outdoor entrance, an LCD TV, fresh-baked cookies, Scandia down comforters and featherbeds, custom-built log furniture, and a gas-log fireplace for indoor pinecone roasting. Every hibernation chamber possesses its own charms, with the Moon room's ($220–$290) ceiling painted to resemble a majestic Tahoe evening sky, and the Art Studio's ($220–$290) glass sliding doors overlooking blossoming gardens, which can be accurately replicated using an in-room sketchpad and easel. Famished competitive sleepers can fuel their rigorous slumber marathons with gourmet breakfast in the morning and complimentary wine and appetizers at night.
The Shore House at Lake Tahoe and the surrounding ponderosa paradise bustle with activity all year. Six world-class ski areas are within 20 minutes of the property, and warm-blooded outdoorspeople can get an all-natural workout by renting bikes on the Truckee River or hiking to five lakes above Alpine Meadows. Transform chubby fingers into delectable prunes in the lakefront hot tub, or kayak directly from the room during the warmer months of the year, venturing to Crystal Bay for a boulder-side picnic or waterside boulder-stacking contest. During the summer, special events such as free concerts send twinkling quarter notes wafting in the aquatic breeze.

- The lovingly tended, knotty-pine-paneled guest rooms beautifully and simply capture the woodsy spirit of Tahoe – Fodor's Travel
- This is the way a bed and breafast [sic] is supposed to be. Completely charming. Totally private rooms. Amazingly hospitable owners. The inn is right on the lake. – hgrad, TripAdvisor
