We stayed four nights at the Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, California in early June. We were in Truckee for a grandson’s graduation from high school, and an immediate advantage was the Cedar House’s close proximity to historic downtown Truckee, and the less than two mile distance to our daughter’s house. This is an exceptionally wonderful facility. We booked the luxury suite because we liked the extra room and because, at least during off-season, the price was within our budget and not that much more than an ordinary room. (Season consists of ski season plus July and August in this resort a little north of Lake Tahoe.)
The Cedar House is of exceptionally high quality. The whole buildings are scattered about the property in an attractive way, and their wood exteriors are really beautiful. The complementary breakfast is quite special. For example, I discovered that scrambled eggs can be made even better with a garnish of spinach leaves, onion slices, and sliced tomatoes in a salad oil. We chatted with a chef about blueberries in bread, and the next day we were treated to bread with added blueberries and raisins, which made wonderful toast. The kitchen is spotless – and open and completely visible to the diner. The restaurant promises to be a great place to eat dinner, but we did not have the opportunity given our family obligations. However one afternoon we did enjoy the free hors d’oeuvres and cookies.
My wife left a fine decorated fingernail file in a drawer, which was discovered by the cleaning staff and mailed back to us by the management. She had not realized she had lost the file, and the prompt return of this item is emblematic of the top quality of everyone connected with this hotel.
