Don't expect TV's, air-conditioning, telephones or WIFI. There are however a wide array of recreational activities and lodging options including: cabins, an historic hotel, marina/beach duplex, beach side inn, RV park and campgrounds. Also, lakeside dining, a general store as well as an ice-cream parlor. The Mountain Sports Center offers rental as well as hiking maps. My traveling companion and I had the Buick cabin with two bedrooms, each with a double & single bed. There was a pull-out couch in the living room and a full kitchen. The one bathroom had a rather small shower. Outside each cabin there is a grill which all our neighboring cabins seemed to utilize.
On the plus side we were steps from Lake Tahoe and only 50 feet from the back entrance to the historic Valhalla site. The narrow road from the hotel to all the cabins is only wide enough for one car. Luckily, we never had a problem getting to and from our cabin. If you are there with a family or need to relax, this is the place for you.
