“We asked for snow - we got snow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2008

In short: great place to stay. I went there with my girlfriend, and we thought it was a fantastic place to stay. Pluses include: great owners and staff (Heather, Jocelyn and more), fantastic location - minutes from Heavenly Mtn, across the street from three great restaurants, jacuzzi tubs in rooms (make sure you ask) and nice and quiet. Clean and secure as well. Only gripe we'd have has to do with the weather - the ice pack was melting off the roof and since it was an older building that was remodeled you could hear it drip - Robin moved us immediately when she heard this - and we thought this was above and beyond. We normally stay at nicer places (RC, Mandarin Orientals, etc.) and this was on par with those establishments (more b&b feel). We plan on coming back many times over the years.

We have just returned from spending our half term break at The Deerfield Lodge and would recommend this property highly. After spending a few days in Las Vegas, we wanted to move on to a hotel that would offer top quality accommodation and first class service but on a small scale - and we found just that!
The Deerfield Lodge is a real gem - privately owned and managed by Robin and Eric. They have put every ounce of their limitless energy into converting a run of the mill property into a true home from home. They have thought of every detail and fitted out each suite with top quality furniture, bedding and bathrooms. There are lots of nice touches like the Bulgari cosmetics too. The Jacuzzi bath tub in the room was a great way to relax after a days skiing. Our room had a master bedroom with en-suite and separate lounge (with large sofabed) and separate WC/shower-room. A perfect configuration for my wife and I and two teenage children. You can also park right outside your room which is handy when lugging ski gear (4 x 4 (SUV) advisable).
The Deerfield Lodge is not a full service hotel and does not have a bar or restaurant. The reception (with open fire) and breakfast room are the heart of the hotel. Continental breakfast with delicious home made apple and date porridge and warm croissants was just right. The skiers tea of mulled cider, cheeseboard and cakes also hit the spot nicely.
But what makes The Deerfield Lodge so special is the personal service it offers. I cannot ever remember leaving a hotel and hugging the staff like saying good-bye to old friends! Robin, Heather and Jocelyn share the front of house roles and cannot do enough for you. They helped make restaurant bookings even before we arrived. Their local knowledge was invaluable like ski hire delivered to your door. Best of all, we spent a lot of time just chatting and laughing together.
The Deerfield Lodge is like having your own luxury ski apartment without the cost. I am sure we will return some day - I hear that summer in Lake Tahoe is beautiful!!

My husband and I just spent MLK weekend at the Deerfield Lodge at Heavenly and loved it. The rooms are very comfortable and the location is great. The shuttle picks up right outside of the hotel and takes to you to the California lodge.

Also, they are so very accomidating. Due to the mass of people in Heavenly for the holiday weekend...we couldn't get a taxi into town so the owner of the hotel gave us a ride to dinner.

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Heavenly for skiing/snowboarding.

MY wife's sister chose the Deerfield Lodge at Heavenly to host her destination wedding party of 22 guests this January (2008). IIt is located right off of Ski Run Blvd, the main road up to the Heavenly ski resort, and it is convenient to lots of good eating and shopping. It is a beautiful lodge that has a homey feel to its exterior and has been lovingly updated with fine appointments to be considered "luxury" in my experience of travel. However, it is the service of the owners and staff that made our stay and Heather's wedding go so smoothly. A few examples. My wife, Holly, is still nursing our four month old son, Jackson, and needed dry ice to keep frozen milk on the plane ride back home (airlines allow dry ice only). The staff just overheard Holly talking about her need to find dry ice before we left and called around to find the closest and best place to get it, where to find it in the store, who to talk to, and how to get there. Also, I wanted to take breakfast in bed to Holly after Jackson kept her up all night and as I was gathering up breakfast for us both from the dining area (oh, the breakfast food was great!), the lady who was staffing the dining room noticed I couldn't carry all of the items and brought me a tray to use. Also, after Holly fell on the pavement during a snowball fight and got her only pair of Jeans that she brought covered in road grime, the staff took them, washed them for her, and brought them back the same day. In sum, the staff not only helped us with the official part of the stay but truly served us by being thoughtful, efficient, polite, and enjoyable company. Considering the price and the fact that the suite sleeps six, this is an amazing deal to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe while being pampered like long lost family. I highly recommend the Deerfield Lodge at Heavenly! You will not be disappointed.

We had a wonderful stay!! This is like being a guest in a friends home!! The property owners and all the employees treated all of us like they had known us forever.
We had a suite with two queen (feather top) beds and a living area with a pullout sofa. The furnishings are superb and look brand new. Each suite had 2 full bathrooms which was great for our family of 5.
Breakfast each morning was great and the shuttle to the slopes is right out the front door. There are snacks and drinks in the lobby in the afternoon which was perfect after a day of skiing.
I can't say enough about this hotel. Anyone who stays there will LOVE it!!!

As I planned our honeymoon, I wanted our last couple of days to be especially great. I selected Deerfield Lodge for the last 2 nights of our honeymoon trip. We were both so impressed with the rooms. Initially I booked a standard room (which comes with a fireplace) but I upgraded to a suite which was certainly worth it. We had sparkling cider, chocolates and fruit in our room when we arrived. The rooms are beautiful, the attention to every detail is obvious from the stone and granite, to the very comfortable bed, even the soaps, lotions and body wash were great. Eric & Robin (owners) have done an awesome job and were always available, from breakfast in the morning to happy hour in the evening. We definately are looking forward to staying there again.

We had a FABULOUS experience at the Deerfield Lodge. It truely is an amazing hotel. Our wedding cermony was held there. Robin, Heather and Jocely were amazing help to us in getting things organized. We chose the hotel for our wedding because we felt an instant warmth when visiting months ago and they also welcomed pets. We stayed for 4 days, 3 nights, as did several of our guests and we could not say enough about the hotel's rooms, amenities, as well as their generous hospitality. Expecially, on our wedding night when they came in an put rose petals all over the bedroom and bathroom, amazing chocolates, and a bottle of wine. How romantic and beautiful. Our dog, Phoebe also loved the hotel and was very much at home there. A special thanks and gratitude to Robin, Heather and Jocelyn who made our day and weekend so very special.
