KCRA-3 awards first place to West Shore Lake Tahoe bed and breakfast

TAHOMA andamp;#8212; NBC Northern California affiliate, KCRA-3 named Tahoma Meadows Bed and Breakfast the Best Bed and Breakfast in the Greater Lake Tahoe Area for their 2009 My Getaway A-List contest. News viewers from across Northern California nominated and voted for 15 Bandamp;Bs in the Lake Tahoe area and concluded that Tahoma Meadows Bed and Breakfast was the best. A step back in time, Tahoma Meadows Bed andamp; Breakfast is how Tahoe was 50 years ago. The historic and charming little red cottages, many dating back to the 1920s, are decorated with mountain elegance and surrounded by huge pines. The 10 rooms have private entrances and baths, and include gourmet family style breakfast buffet. The six family cottages are fully equipped with kitchens and all the comforts of home. Some of the cabins are pet friendly, so even the family dog can join in on vacation. Guests to Tahoma Meadows Bandamp;B come from all over California, the country and the world. Tahoma Meadows Bandamp;B has been mentioned in Frommerandamp;#8217;s, Foderandamp;#8217;s, Best Places to Stay in Northern California, Lonely Planet, Sunset Magazine, the Sacramento Bee, New York Times, CABBI, Ski Magazine, Snow Magazine, AAA and other travel books in England and Germany. Owners since 1999, Dick and Ulli White worked hard to bring Tahoma Meadows Bandamp;B to its first place status. After meeting on a chairlift in 1991, Dick and Ulli spent time traveling the world together until they decided running a small inn would be a perfect fit for their lifestyle. Dick, originally from Davis, Calif. grew up working at his family summer resort. Ulli, originally from Germany, studied hotel management in Frankfurt and worked for Kempinski Hotels in the sales and marketing department. Dick and Ulli have two children. Mara was born in July 1999, the month before they became the new owners, and their son Sven, was born in September 2004.
