We came to Franciscan Lodge at the end of our trip to the USA (from the UK) and this was definately the best hotel that we stayed at. We stayed in No 9 and there was plenty of room for two adults and 2 children. After 2 weeks of hotels, it was pleasure to be able to 'eat at home'. The beds were comfortable, we found everything that we needed in the kitchen area and there is even a view of the beach from the deck and one of the windows. The beach is great and the kids enjoyed swimming in the lake so much that we didn't even try the pool. The staff could not have been more helpful. We stayed for 3 days but wished that it could have been longer. The lake and mountains are just spectacular and whenever I think of returning to California it's definately to Lake Tahoe.
