“No place better for families!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We found Mourelatos by accident about 7 years ago and have gone back every single year and have introduced this wonderful place to about 7 family and friend families. No one has ever been disappointed nor thought we exaggerated in the least. Having a private beach just outside your doorstep is unbeatable! Let's be honest, packing up all the gear, kids, traffic, etc to go the beach for a few hours is a tremendous pain in the rear and frankly for me, not worth it. Mourelatos provides just about every amenity needed for the beach for free or a nominal rental fee. The convenience is fantastic! Every year, we come back to another upgrade or improvement, such as cushions for the chaise lounges, carpet replaced with wood floors, etc that makes the place better than the year before! Alex and his staff truly care about their guests and property. By the way, we have rented luxury vacation homes and stayed at other facilities in the area before we found Mourelatos, would never go anywhere else again in the area. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: They have lots of different types of rooms but the four lake front rooms with their private deck are...

An absolutely awesome family vacation - with something for everyone to do. The location is perfect - a private beach - steps from the room - with a breathtaking view of the mountains and water. We were able to rent a Jet ski (right on the property), stand on a paddle board in the middle of the lake, and swim out to a trampoline located on the lake. Since there is a refrigerator in the room, a 24 hr. grocery store nearby, and a barbeque pit available to borrow, everything a family needs is at this resort. They even let us borrow plates, silverware, and tools to roast marshmallows on the fire pit. They have lots of movies to borrow and watch in the room, and board games to play. I even allowed my son to beat me in some ping-pong games on the beach. Our room was beautiful with a high ceiling and back door which opens and overlooks beautiful trees. The staff was extremely nice - the owners, cleaning ladies, and especially the young maintenance man who does an excellent job maintaining the property. We felt so welcomed. Every morning I spent time alone with my Bible on the beach - these are moments I will never forget! We have already booked our vacation for next year - we wouldn't be staying anywhere else!

We stayed in unit 134 and had a great time. So did our and our friends' kids, ages 5, 6, and 7. Literally steps from the water, all rooms front on a lakefront beach with kids' toys and plenty of lounge chairs & umbrellas. All of our kids found friends to play with and were constantly having fun in & out of the water our entire 4-day stay.
There's a small fleet of BBQs available to use at your convenience. Ping pong table on the beach, two gas firepits, a hammock, some disc golf equipment to play with, quiet icemakers... blenders and toasters and simple, functional kitchen gear in kitchen equipped rooms. Two generations of owners are onsite at all times and the staff is friendly & quick to help.
Room decorations are very slightly dated and generally the fittings and equipment is midlevel, but this is a firmly family and outdoor-fun oriented place. And for North Tahoe the prices are good. Returning guests get a great discount. Everything is well maintained - for a family trip, the value is great.

Pros - great beach, friendly staff, and comfortable. I traveled with my husband and our 1 year old son. Our little guy loved the sand and it was so great to have it so convenient. It was nice to be able to rent stand up paddle boards and kayaks right from the resort - we didn't feel any need to take a trip to any other beach during our stay. The resort had grills, fire pits, a ping pong table, and plenty of beach chairs available. Great hiking was only a short drive away - I recommend the Five Lakes hike or doing part of the Tahoe Rim Trail.

Cons - the rooms were a bit outdated and worn, and the walls were thin. However, mostly young families were staying here, so there wasn't a lot of late night noise.

We booked five rooms for a family vacation. We had a ball! The staff was excellent, especially Nick who never stopped running! The owner/family should be proud of his customer service skills. Some of the rooms have kitchens. All the rooms are comfortable. We already booked even more rooms for next year. The Lake front view, the fire pits, and the relaxing feeling really makes it. You don't even have to leave the resort. You can order a "Box Lunch" at the front desk from one of the local restaurants that is real food and fantastic. The staff will deliver your lunch to the beach or where ever you are hanging out. Excellent!

We spent 3 fantastic days at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort. Of course lake Tahoe with a hot summer weather is unique, but the confortable rooms, the Nice and efficient welcome of thé Mourelatos family and staff, the beautiful beach, and all the available equipments Like iPhone dock, BBQ were à part of this perfect stay. I hope that we 'll côme back one day (from France) !!!

I have been going to Tahoe, most of my life as I had a relative that had a summer house. That opportunity is no longer exists so we had to look on the e web the last few years. This is an outstanding location and resort. This has to be one of the best resorts for family in Tahoe. The beach, the toys, buckets, tubes, ping pong table, badminton and the water rental items such as kayaks, boards etc. This was great for the teenager and the younger one as well.
Our youngest had a birthday and the owner, Alex Mourelatos, gave her an ice cream at his ice cream shop across the street. The owner and his family worked very hard to ensure everyone had a good time. Always asking if everything is OK is there anything he can do for us. One night he encouraged the guest to come mingle at the Managers welcome with beverage, light finger foods and music, even some demonstrations of how to do a dance. It was fun for all! The kids loved the fire pits as we had smore’s every night.
This is actually one of the first locations where the pictures on the internet are factual. We have already book for next summer and can’t wait to go back. Thank you Mourelatos!!!
