My husband was playing in the band at the Placer County Sheriff Convention where there were 350 sheriffs and their wives. The party with a banquet and the band was outside on a lovely large patio with phenomenal views. The food was astounding in it's delicious variety of options.
Plus very generous drink offerings.
The musician's and their spouses received complimentary rooms. We were offered a beautifully furnished, very small room with 2 queen beds. Wow, it was elegant but tiny and crowded for 2 plus luggage.
However, I was wearing a sling after recent shoulder replacement surgery and could not yet sleep in a bed. We asked for and received the 1 bedroom king bed fireplace suite which had a comfy couch and thick pillows on which I could rest. What a place and what a view. The windows even opened fully, but as there were no screens we, regretfully had to close them at twilight due to the bugs. The living-dining rooms were tasteful and comfy. The galley kitchen was fantastic with built-in and a two-burner stove, small refrigerator, microwave, sink all the cutlery, dishes, pots-pans, measuring cup, etc. you could need for several days. Even dish towels, pot holders, sponges, and paper towels. Behind one cabinet drawer was, astoundingly, a small dishwasher.
The bedroom contained the most phenomenally comfortable king bed, closet, desk, etc. and there was a large bathroom also containing a door into the living room area. Everything was so comfortable, intimate, and subtly luxurious as to make us want to stay for ann extended time in our miniature "cabin".
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. While the space has a European mountain chalet-like appearance, there is an airiness and lightness as to feel very Californian.
The Resort lobby is gorgeous with a huge stone fireplace (fire roaring in the chilly evening and early morning hours. Beautiful decor and a tremendous amount of recreational opportunities. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. While the space has a European mountain chalet-like appearance, there is an airiness and lightness as to feel very Californian. Fantastic for couples, families and golfers, tennis players, hikers, etc..
I would give the Resort 5 stars except for the fact that the standard rooms are almost too small for comfort.
If you can afford it, book the 1 or 2 bedroom suites.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Resort at Squaw Creek. We are glad you and your group had a good time during your stay, although we are sorry to hear that your arm was in a sling. That takes some of the recreational opportunities off the table. Anyhow, we are very happy to hear that you were comfortable and enjoyed our chefs' cuisine. We always look forward to having this group stay with us at Resort at Squaw Creek. The location is hard to beat for a conference, isn't it?

By the way, our Deluxe Guestrooms are 379 square feet, which is on par with other upscale resorts in the area. Granted, the suites are more spacious. In fact, at Resort at Squaw Creek, Fireplace Suites comprise the majority of the rooms.
We wish you a full recovery with your injury, and hope to see you back without the sling, so you can enjoy the amenities and recreation a bit more.
