Excellent location near Tahoe City. We cycled everywhere and relaxed at the pool. Our room was spacious with a very private balcony and included a microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast is provided every morning with everything you can imagine - eggs, fruit, bacon, etc. The Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park is on the property and we had a blast climbing and zip... More

First I want to mention that we did not get a hotel room as we expected, we got a room that is part of an apartment that we had to share with some strangers. Common front door, common hallway, separate rooms. I couldn't believe that they would not disclose such a detail online. We could hear the other people whispering... More

Thank you for taking the time to share some of the shortcomings of your stay with us, Samantha. For conference stays, we do book rooms within townhouses as standard bedrooms if the conference coordinators request that we do so. We always keep participants of a conference in townhouses together, and we do our best to notify the participants of these... More

Our room was super clean with a nice modern bathroom. Enjoyed having a balcony. We used the heated outdoor pool every day, even the morning it got down to 39 degrees. Convenient to Tahoe City and Meek's Bay. We enjoyed hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail 5 minutes from our room. Decent hot breakfast, too. Next time we'll book the ropes... More

The place was clean and comfortable, lots of things to do. Great breakfast to start the day. We are going to plan a family reunion and stay here. We stayed here in March the pool was open ! And there was snow on the ground. It was fun swimming in the heated pool and seeing snow every where.

Set in a bowl in the mountains on the north side of Lake Tahoe just a mile or so outside of Tahoe Cuty, this report is a self contained winter/ summer resort.

Comfortable, clean and friendly. Food was plentiful and good. Living at sea level didn't prepare me for the altitude. Prepare to be winded as you walk up stairs, around the resort, etc. Peaceful and serene. Loved the pool.
