PlumpJack is a funny name and a nice place to stay. No less than six pillows backed the king size bed. A beer-stocked fridge but no microwave hides in a bureau that is topped by a flat panel and a couple bottles of "honor" wine. A June visit will have you leaving a window cracked or wide open. Either way,... More

Good day John B - Thank you for the recent visit and for sharing insight into your stay. Our hotel was built just prior to the 1960 Winter Olympics and it definitely has its quirks and historic charm. We look forward to welcoming you back this summer or perhaps when the snow flies in the coming winter season. Take care,... More

I went with my sister and her (adult) children for a few days hiking in the Sierra and all of us enjoyed the Inn as much as I had before. The beds are really comfortable and the breakfast buffet is great. As before, we loved the wonderful patio! This time we ate breakfast there in the sun and fresh air... More

Hi there Sandy - thanks for the recent return visit. Late spring is a beautiful time to visit Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe with lighter crowds, abundant sunshine and the occasional shower to keep things fresh. The staff sure appreciates the positive feedback and we're happy you enjoyed breakfast and our back patio which is a perfect spot to relax... More

We have stayed here before because we love Squaw Valley and PlumpJack's dog friendless. If you are a skier, snowboarder, trail runner or hiker than this is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Tahoe lake area. We have many friends that we stay with BUT sometimes it's nice to have a little get away with out yellow lab... More

The conference facilities perfect and the location is ideal if you want the attendees to feel special. Food is great, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the location! Even if you don't like hiking, just breathing the air here is wonderful.

Came up for a 3 night stay to celebrate a wedding. Everything was fantastic. From the moment we pulled up, the manager came out to help us unpack our car. The service was sublime. The room was spacious, well-appointed, clean, and very charming. The Plumpjack bar downstairs was classy, great drinks, great conversation from all the bartenders that work over... More

This place feels like Home for me and I am welcome each time like it is Home. Staff is friendly, courteous and professional. The granola in the morning is a must and the after ski burger with a nice glass of wine in the bar area is the finish of a long day outside.
