We came to Tahoe to visit my family living in Reno. My wife and three sons and Mom and Dad fit comfortably in the three bedroom condo at the lodge. My sister and her husband actually came and spent a couple of nights (9 total) and it worked perfect. Each family had space and their own bathroom. The condo was... More

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and looking for a special place to stay that didn't require a plane trip. Since we are members of the Welk Resorts, we decided to try their Tahoe place. We were concerned that we might not have enough to do since we are not skiers but we dismissed those concerns when we approached. The... More

This hotel was ideal for the ski in/out. It is located well and only a short walk to local shops and restaurant. A large group of us went so clean towels were always replaced and rooms were always tidy. If we needed anything the staff would always help :-)

We chose this as an up market place to stay having just been at Squaw Valley Lodge. In comparison this is one star higher and Welk Resorts do try and give it an upmarket feel with the rooms being well appointed and the kitchen fully-equipped. However we were shocked to find on our return from skiing that the rooms had... More

and right at Northstar Resort. For ski/snowboarding fans this is a ski-in, gondola out resort. Everything is well kept, the rooms well stocked, and the staff couldn't be better. The furnishings are top notch and complement the mountain environment. The Northstar Village is just out the door with a winter ice skating/summer roller skating area and plenty of shops and...

We had a 2 night reservation. We didn't realize it was the start of the "shoulder season" so the Village was dead. My only complaint with this place is there is absolutely no service. My husband had a bad asthma attack, had great difficulty breathing in the thin air, and we had to check out after only 1 night. I... More

We stayed here Aug 10-14. The address is Truckee, but the resort is closer to Lake Tahoe than Truckee. A fabulous place to stay; beautifully furnished and FULLY equipped, right down to wine glasses, martini glasses, and a martini shaker. Also had a set of 10 Henkel knives in a wooden block. Silverware seemed brand new. The hair dryer was... More

Beautifully appointed, well trained and courteous staff! Full attention to detail. Top end resort! Quiet in the summer! Nice underground parking a plus, especially in winter. Has a feeling of "brand new"

Luxury, luxury, luxury. Spent 4 nights here in a two bedroom, two bath room. This is a timeshare which we rented from someone we know. Fully equipped kitchen - ideal for our family of six since we can't afford to eat out all the time on vacation. Washer and dryer in the unit. No room cleaning service unless you pay... More

This Welk Resort fully exceeded our expectations!!! It starts off with an inside parking garage that is security and is underground and heated. We were surprised by the opening gates, as it reminded us of a ride at Disneyland, and it made our vacation start off with a laugh and a smile!! An inside elevator takes you and your luggage...
