I stayed here with my husband and our 6-yr old for a weekend. The hotel and restaurant staff were so friendly and knowledgable (where to we find the best fish tacos to what's the best bike routes with kids in tow). Patty the owner is an amazing woman who seems to be there 24/7 and makes sure every guest is taken care of.
Their restaurant Stella is fantastic! Don't Miss It!!! Not only is the large complementary breakfast wonderful, but appetizers, dinner and desserts are amazing too. Congrats to the chef and his team.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable, upscale European contemporary. I loved the soap/shampoo/conditioner/lotion despensers, free water, coffee and tea maker. The main lodge has free newspapers, comfy sitting area, goodies (cookies or Clif bars, etc.) and a really cool bar that serves both the inside of the lodge and the outside courtyard (where we sat amongst the beautiful landscaping).
Truckee is just a mile down the road and the Truckee Regional Park is across the street with a great running trail, playground, frisbee golf course and amphitheater. This is my new go-to place to stay in Lake Tahoe.
