Went in May. Not cold anymore and definitely not warm yet. Stayed in a cabin for two nights. I've camped there before and I didn't want to feel squished together with other campers. Camp sites werent open yet anyway.
I had a two bedroom, which would have been interesting with 4+ people. The main room had a full size bed. It had been a while since i've slept in a full. Its overflowing, not full. Pretty comfy though. THese cabins are very basic and that works for me. The view of the lake from the windows remind me why I didnt stay in a hotel. If you go during the off season youll save some $$.
That said, there wasn't a whole lot to do. Water was very cold and the weathe isnt warm enough to hang out on the beach. No snow. I should probably learn some trails.
I love Tahoe in summer. CR is a great spot for it.
When we got bored, we went to the typical places, casino's shops etc. Groceries were not far away.
Front desk folks are nice. Not much interaction otherwise.
I'm rambling. Had a good time. Peace!
