Stanford Alpine Chalet
Reviewed September 8, 2012

For $110.00 a night (FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!), this is the best kept secret in Tahoe. 2 miles at the end of a mountain road, SAC sits on a bluff overlooking Alpine meadow Ski Resorts runs. You cannot see any building due to a stand of trees which gives you a feeling of being on the top of the world. Built by Stanford University in the 60's, refurbished in the 90's, all rooms are for 4 people (Queen and 2 Bunk Beds) This is the cleanest room I have ever rented!!!! Balconys give you a panoramic view of Alpine Bowl, Perfect. Each person will enjoy the heated pool and jacuzzi (105 Degrees!!) all year long....Geoff, the manager was quick to help with any question or to assist in out daily excursions....Everyone gets a "Made to Order" breakfast which was over the top foe a hotel standard....If you go, tell Geoff "Chicago Joe" sent you....

Room Tip: Talk to Geoff, He knows the answer to anything you need to know....Great guy....

Reviewed February 21, 2012

We've come to the Stanford Alpine Chalet every winter for years. The place is small (16 rooms?). The rooms are designed to fit 3-5 people each, so there are frequently a bunk bed and a double, and each room has its own bath. The rooms are far from fancy (dresser drawers often fall out, bathroom fixtures sometimes broken) but recent renovations (paint, windows) make it pleasant enough. Besides, who wants to be in the hotel room when there is so much to do with family in the Tahoe area?. Upstairs is a large community area with a fireplace, games, toys, magazines, books. People sit around and chat in the evenings, although sad to say, now with free wireless, most people just stare at their own screens. There is coffee and tea available round-the-clock and hors d'oeuvres at 5. Also, a wonderful breakfast comes with the room and a full dinner can be purchased on site for $22. A jitney takes you to and from Alpine Meadows ski slope although you can walk easiily enough. The kids love the sledding hills adjacent and across the street (sleds provided) . Overall, it is a great place to stay. The only downside--over holidays it is VERY expensive.
