My sister and I spent one night here on our way to the North Shore for the Tahoe Rim Trail Race. It was the perfect place for us to rest and get some solid sleep a couple nights before the race and definitely lived up to its claim as a great place for adventure seekers—we only wish we had more time there.
We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival (even though it was nearly midnight, the owner was still up and greeting guests along with his staff) and crashed in our room which was clean, thoughtfully designed and decorated, and super comfortable. The hotel hired artist Wendy MacNaughton to create prints and original works throughout the rooms and common spaces — even the "Do No Disturb" sign featured one of her drawings (full disclosure: I was already a fan of Wendy and her work so these details were an easy win for me).
We enjoyed cool, fresh air on our little deck with bright green Adirondack chairs when we woke, and got to see more of the space when we ventured down for breakfast. The homemade granola, yogurt, fruit and good coffee (and free wifi!) we found waiting for us were exactly what we needed to fuel up before heading out. The deck and common spaces for eating are clean, casual and inviting, and like the rest of the place, very comfortable.
I can't say enough good things about Basecamp—as a gateway to an incredible adventure and a place I totally fell in love with, it felt like a home away from home.
