“Sierra Nevada High”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Just spent 3 nights at the Ridge Tahoe for a family wedding onsite. Ridge Tahoe is located at the top of Kingsbury Grade, right next to the Heavenly Valley chair lift (Nevada side) . There are 7 or 8 buildings built virtually into the hillside with gorgeous views of the Carson Valley to the East.

Initially had a little bit of trouble finding the main office since the property is so spread out, but once we found it, all was good. We arrived in the late afternoon, and the evening manager was most helpful with the check in process. We were booked into the Plaza building, room 2301. Parking was very convenient, as there was an indoor parking garage on the 3rd floor of the Plaza building, which lead directly to the inside of the 3rd floor, where our room was. They conveniently had luggage carts, which made the trip from the car to our room a lot easier than carrying our luggage to the room, which would have taken several trips.

The room was very nice, clean with no obnoxious smells or odors: No air conditioning (what's up with that?), but a variable speed ceiling fan, which was adequate. The bed was a sleep number bed, with variable settings. The 1st night I used sleep setting 60, but did not sleep well. the other 2 nights I set it to 35 and slept like a baby. There was a mini refrigerator in the room, stocked with local banana bread, which was very good. There was also a coffee maker and a toaster, plus silverware and plates and cups for 4. There was a small table and a couple chairs which seemed a little cramped. The bathroom was very clean, stocked with soaps (2 sinks), lotion, shampoo and conditioner. The room was cleaned daily, with fresh towels and other bath supplies. The shower/bath was also very clean, but there seemed to be a bit of a drainage issue. The room also had a flat screen tv with remote and a pretty good selection of channels.

Ridge Tahoe also has several swimming pools and spa/hot tubs on site. Other amenities I saw were an indoor racquetball court, health club with workout facilities, tennis courts, golf driving nets, a pool table upstairs next to the bar in the club building and many organized activities for both young and old..

I tried the Ridge Club Deli in the main building a couple mornings for breakfast. Service was good, the food was outstanding (try the breakfast sandwich) and prices were very reasonable. The Bear Trap Bar upstairs has happy hour from 4-8pm, and the ambiance was very nice and relaxed. I did not eat in the Hungry Bear Restaurant, but did have 2 dinners associated with the wedding: a very tasty soft taco buffet with beef. pork and chicken and the works, and an outstanding beef medallion dinner with all the trimmings. Delicious!

There are also resort shuttles which will take you anywhere onsite you want to go. Walking around the resort can be tricky, since much of the resort is on a slope. The altitude and the thin mountain air made it hard for an old fart like me to walk up some of the steep inclines (walking downhill was easy!) Thank God for the shuttles! There's also an hourly shuttle to the casinos. We had a car, which made it easy to get around. It's about a 10+ minute trip down the hill to Harrah's, Harvey's, Montbleu, or the Lakeside Casino, and all offer free parking.

A very nice resort and a very nice stray.

The Ridge Tahoe is 7600 ft. high up. The view is magnificent during all seasons.
One of the good parts of this place is that there is transportation sponsored by the resort. It will take you to restaurants, shopping or to the casinos. It`s a real convenience since driving eliminates having to find parking. The driver can probably help with directions.
However, if you decide to stay at the hotel for meals there are good choices available. Light lunches, breakfasts, and dinners are very well prepared. Brunch on Sunday is terrific. Individual omelets, burritos,croissants and so much more can be had in the cafe.
There are people there to help you find things to do for the whole family.
The rooms are comfortably furnished. Beds are great and the bathrooms roomy.Views are so beautiful!
If you feel like going out for a meal there are good restaurants available down by the casinos.
We were there during late Spring so the evenings were cool, jacket weather. Check temps for daytime clothing.
It`s a good place with snow and beaches. What else do you need.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view. There are many but do that to make sure!

My grandparents have a time share here so we've been staying there one week a year since 1997. We stay in the Plaza building on the Carson Valley view side and it's amazing. The hotel is about a 7-10 minute drive from the clubs but there is a free shuttle that leaves every half hour that will take you to and from downtown. The rooms have been remodeled in the past couple years. The only thing that I'm not crazy about are the Sleep Number beds. Also, it's usually cooler on the ridge so the rooms only have ceiling fans and a small portable air conditioner so when it is hot, that's not ideal but usually the heat isn't a problem. This is a great family resort with activities for everyone.

We stayed in my in-laws lockoff portion of their timeshare they purchased back in '98. Travelling with our 1.5 year old for the first time to The Ridge, I wasn't sure how it would be - it was great. The room (6th floor of the Cascade) was spacious, clean, & was stocked with dishes, soap, microwave, mini fridge, & coffee maker. You are literally at the top edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, so it is windy - every day. We were here before so we knew to prepare for that and brought ear covers for our tater tot and light hoodies for ourselves. There is a playground that was perfect for our Tot at the Terrace Building next door.

Best Memories:
There is a new moderate hiking/bike trail that takes 2.5-3.5 hours to hike down to town (with the little one, we needed to stop several times and just focus on her so it took us 3.5). It was beautiful with some fantastic views of the lake and the casinos from above. The Go Blue took us back up to The Ridge.
Food from the deli was excellent as was the service.

Disappointments:
-We had a medical package and paid to have it overnighted to arrive on Saturday. They didn't pick it up until Monday and just gave excuses.
-There is a children's activity "drop off" for 3+yr olds. The concierge told me that I could join with my little one, but when I tried they told me that I couldn't come in with her it was drop off only.

Notes:
-Try not to just let those heavy doors slam. Ugh our room was right next to housekeeping and someone was staying in the larger suite next door and the door slamming jarred me when trying to put our little one to sleep.
-Remember it's windy here.
-The restaurant is not open every day. The deli has split shift hours. Plan for that.
-There are games at the spa desk that you can check out.

Room Tip: Because my in-laws are owners, the Huz says that the room will always be on the 6th floor of the Cas...

My Family stayed in a "Remodeled" 2 Bed 2 Bath Condo unit at The Ridge in June . Beautiful location, awesome amenities. Our building had a Jacuzzi on the 8th Floor....Amazing views!!!
It gets very windy in the evening so pack your jackets

*Note...Make sure you don't book at "Ridge Pointe" This building is Off-Site from the resort and
you have to take a shuttle to get to the main building for all the amenities etc

We did a timeshare exchange to The Ridge and stayed in one of their hotel suite type rooms. It was one of the "lock off" rooms and unfortunately was in the bottom floor of the Terrace building with NO view. We looked out onto a huge concrete wall. Very disappointing. The resort itself is very nice, but we just we not that impressed. It is located at the top of Heavenly and was quite windy and much colder than down at lake level. There is a deli that is open at certain times of the day, and a restaurant that is only open on the weekends. Their market has some basic food items.

Room Tip: Be sure to inquire about the view when you make your reservation. Many of the Terrace building room...
