There's a reason salmon risk life and—er, fin—to return to Lake Tahoe every year: 260 days of sunshine, as much as 500 inches of annual snowfall, and a lake so clear you can see a silver dollar shining at 50 feet deep.

But you don't have to risk anything to embark on this Escape to Tahoma Meadows Bed & Breakfast Cottages, set on the decidedly low-key west shore of Lake Tahoe. Make your way to this throwback property—an heirloom of Tahoe circa 1920—for a two-night stay for two in a queen cottage ($189).

Your cozy cottage comes complete with queen bed, fireplace, private entrance, and claw-foot soaking tub and shower. You won't need your sled dog to get here, but he's welcome at no charge—this charming inn is a recent winner of the Golden Bone Award for exceptional service from The Dog Lover's Companion to California. If you don't plan on bringing along a canine companion, choose a gift basket full of wine and snacks instead.

Wake up to gourmet family-style breakfast in the common room, where views abound—it becomes clear why this sanctuary was voted Best Bed and Breakfast on KCRA's A-List in 2009. When you've had your fill, get outside and explore the towering Jeffrey pine forests.

If nature is your bag, branch out for a hike along the trails of nearby Cascade Creeks Falls. As you navigate the mile-long route, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the 200-foot falls as well as Cascade Lake. A few minutes away is Sugar Pine Point State Park, where you can stroll along Lake Tahoe's shores and even spot majestic bald eagles. Or, witness thousands of spawning salmon on Taylor Creek.

In the afternoon, you'll head back to the cottages for included wine and cheese. All of this appetizing is just a warm-up to the main event: delicious dining at one of the area's many restaurants. For lunch, Obexer's General Store in Homewood serves deli-style sandwiches just steps from the Tahoe Maritime Museum. Or treat yourself to a romantic dinner at the lakefront Sunnyside Restaurant, a local favorite.

Don't let this Escape be the one that got away. When it comes to vacations, there may be other fish in the sea, but this one's the catch of a lifetime.

  • "It's hard to beat this serene property for atmosphere and woodsy charm... Individually decorated little red cottages sit beneath towering pine trees. Inside, they're cheerful, with fun details like model ships on the shelf and a stuffed bear on the bed."
