We stayed here Aug 10-14. The address is Truckee, but the resort is closer to Lake Tahoe than Truckee.
A fabulous place to stay; beautifully furnished and FULLY equipped, right down to wine glasses, martini glasses, and a martini shaker. Also had a set of 10 Henkel knives in a wooden block. Silverware seemed brand new. The hair dryer was brand new and had a "remove before use" tag. There is a ski gondola next to the resort, and that seems to be the main focus. No restaurant on site, and the adjacent village is pretty much dead in the off season.
Pool, hot tub, and exercise room are 60 yards away. That might be a problem in winter. Another hot tub under construction on site. No barbeque grills--staff told me they were located in the construction zone and would be reinstalled after completion of construction. Rooms in front have nice views--ours in back faced the gondola and the resort parking lot. Staff were helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, etc. Obviously well trained.
Very, very quiet in the off season. I thought we pretty much the only ones there until I went to the pool and found it filled with two dozen kids. The hot tub was nice, but the pool was in the low 70's--too cold for us.
I highly recommend this place. We definitely plan to return.
