Was traveling through to Arizona when I came across this brand new and amazing 50-room place tucked into the Cal-Nev border. As a world traveler I have not often stumbled upon such a pleasurable find and can not say enough about the bespoke-to-the-location experience I had. Wow-Wee-Woo-Woo!
Everything from the room design to the s'mores by the fire at night seemed tailor-made for the location in which this hotel sits. On top of these attributes were the little touches like....granola in serving sized brown bag, hair-dryers that simultaneously massaged and dried my head, a wonderful coffee bar that turns into a beer bar out night, a hot tub with very clean water, as well as the most comfortable mattress I have slept own since childhood.
Then there was the service....the lads who checked me in knew soo much about the area that my two day stay was never boring. For example, they were kind enough to direct me to a nearby park and hiking trail where I saw salmon mating, bears climbing, and moles moling. Also, one of the managers I met (Christian Stroopel?) was generous with his time and smile as he showed us how to use the property's very comfortable cruiser-style bikes to get around town and down to his restaurant on the beach of Lake Tahoe.
Not much more I can say expect that after I left I felt like I had lived as a local at this Base Camp Hotel. I hope to find more soon!
Ride Da Wave!
