We really enjoyed our stay. Beautifully preserved hotel in the heart of Virginia city. On the main drag so close to everything. But the hotel itself is the treasure. So much character and charm. It is not hard at all to see the past in this hotel. It looks as if time has stopped here. We both absolutely loved our...

Normally we visit Virginia City for the day. This time we decided to stay the night and luckily we selected Tahoe House. From the time we met Teresa we felt at home. After a beer we toured the hotel and can honestly say that there is not a bad room in the place. Teresa gave us great advice on what...

We absolutely loved our stay. Teresa was super and provided us with great service during our weekend. We actually were married on the balcony off our room, The Presidential Suite, during the Outhouse Races on main street! The hotel is clean, well maintained and gives off such a great "energy". Teresa gave us wonderful ideas on places to eat during...

Great location, super clean, secure, beautiful lobby/main room opening onto balcony over C Street, AND great service by Teresa - she knows the town, the people, the restaurants, and how to run a hotel. This will be our go-to when in Virginia City.

The Tahoe House is a beautiful old hotel on the main street of historic Virginia City. While modern amenities have been added, guests are transported back to the 1860's by the period decor. We stayed in Mark Twain's Study. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet and we had a great view of town from the balcony. Teresa is...

We are from the area and stay in Virginia City several times a year for different events. We didn't know that this hotel existed, found it online & stayed last weekend. The lady who runs the hotel is amazing - so hospitable. Stayed in Mark Twains Study, great view from the balcony and very nice room. The cost was a...
