We were here the 1st week of May and the weather was warm at the lake levels and snow still at the upper levels. The Resort at South Shore was a great place for us with it's location being a short drive from the airport, close to the lake (walking distance) and grocery store (walking distance). The condo was spacious, clean and well maintained. We didn't use the resorts other ammenities but saw that they were there and ready to use. We are low-maintance-type people and didn't need a thing after check-in. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped (we cook/make almost all our meals). Nice porch to enjoy overlooking a nice view of the wooded hills. Broadband Internet service available in the unit. Flat-screen TV in Livingroom and Bedroom. Great place to Stay!

Stayed here for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful resort! The ammenities were great and the property was beautiful. It's just a short walk down to the lake, and a very close drive to the fun town of South Lake Tahoe!

My husband, sister and I stayed here as part of timeshare points. We had a 3 bedroom, each room had a flat screen and a DVD player including the family/living room. The room had it's own washer/dryer, ironing board, iron and vacuum if you like to vacuum on vacation. There's even an electric grill on the balcony, great for grilling salmon. It's conveniently located near Nevada Beach ( an easy 1 mile walk on a paved path to the beach). I suggest walking every morning instead of using the workout room, much better scenery. Nevada Beach is a great place to get sunset photos over Lake Tahoe (other than Sand Harbor). There is a small shopping center, within easy walking distance (but up a hill) from the resort, and it's open 24/7. We were 5 minutes from the CA/NV line near the casinos, restaurants and shopping. The room was clean, comfortable and I had absolutely no complaints with the staff or service I received, everyone was very accommodating. The pool was closed but the spa was open. It was too cold to get in the pool or Lake anyway. This time of year it was quiet, not many tourist (October 9-16) so it was easy to get parking but I can see how it would be a problem during peak season, only 1 space per room. They have guest parking but may not be as convenient to your room. The free high speed internet in the room is not wireless so my husband and fought over the internet connection and it really wasn't so high speed. The business center has 2 computers but no fax. We missed the peak of the salmon spawning by a few days but we still got some great photos. Recommend it highly. If you are Catholic there is a quaint Catholic church only 225 feet from the resort (we could see it from our window) very pretty (log cabin style type building) which was very convenient. The parish members and Father Oliver welcomed us with open arms, what a wonderful service. The weather was in 70's during the day and 40's at night, only needed a light jacket during the day and for the evening I was comfortable with a sweater.

Our son's school has an auction every year, so on a whim we bid on this place for 1 week over Christmas. We were very pleased. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath/3 tv :) "condo" with a full kitchen and W/D. It was our first stay at a timeshare.

It was clean and well stocked, and couldn't have been more convenient (1/2 block to a Safeway-large grocery store) and 1/2 mile to the lake. It was snowy and cold (and fun), and we were able to X-country ski to the lake and "hike" to the store on icy roads.

There was a gas fireplace for smores, a main room to play games that you can check out, and friendly and helpful service. We are hoping that they offer it up at the auction again this year.

The only downside is that they do not allow pets (easy way out of the timeshare talk).

Well,

Lets start with our arrival:

A) When I checked in I noticed they had us checked out a day earlier than we actually were, thats ok, it was fixed.

B) Two days after our check in, my sister n law was sitting in our room when two strange ladies entered! Thank god she was not running around nude! They had been assigned the same room? How does this happen? Our keys were also disabled. Not once,but twice!

C) Went to the clubhouse to enjoy family night! Not so enjoyable. We arrived and there was noone there. So our kids proceeded to play table tennis and pool. Another family arrived, so our kids finished up the table tennis game so the other kids could play. So, after about 20 mintues of pool, our kids were told by oscar at the front desk to finish up as the other family requested to play. Ok, so why could they not ask us? So, they stopped. Only to have the other family take over, a) the table tennis and b) the pool table! So our kids were left with nothing! I was furious and asked Oscar why he allowed this.. just an apology! So rude!

I stayed at Marriot Timber Lodge in the summer and received far superior service and will stay there again!

We stayed at The Resort at South Shore 2 nights (8/30/07-8/31/07), using our Wyndham points. This was part of our 2007 Western US Road Trip. See our Las Vegas review. We had camped the night before we arrived in Zephyr Cove.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE! Zephyr Cove, NV is located on the Eastern shore of Lake Tahoe. The resort is nestled in the trees along the mountainside about a 10 minute walk from the lake. Absolutely breathtaking!

We arrived early, and were checked in very quickly. Everyone was friendly and upbeat. The concierge was enthusiastic, with information about the Tahoe area and suggestions for dining, entertainment, etc. We booked a sunset dinner cruise to Emerald Bay on the MS Dixie paddle wheel for the next evening. "Members' Services" wanted us to attend an 'Update', so we scheduled that for early the next morning (to get it out of the way). We enjoyed talking with everyone, and were in our suite within 45 minutes.

The units here are somewhat smaller than some of the other Wyndham resorts, but they have plenty of space, are nicely decorated and very well maintained. Everything looked new.

Our 2 BR Presidential Suite (sleep 6) was nicely furnished with upgrades to everything, including hardwood & tile floors everywhere except the 2 bedrooms which were carpeted, pretty area rugs in LR & DR, leather couch, REAL WOOD furniture, fireplace in LR, flat screen TV w/DVD & sound system in LR & MBR, great mattress topper, stainless appliances, high grade cookware, granite counter tops in kitchen & bathroom, attractive decorations & accessories, etc. The Washer/dryer were in a closet off of the LR, and a Murphy bed folded down from another closet. There was also a small balcony off of the dining area with an electric grille and lovely view of the surrounding woods and buildings.

One thing that seems odd to us, since we are from the humid Southeast US, there is no AC. However, this is the High Sierras and AC is unnecessary. -- Simply open the windows, enjoy the breeze and smell the pines. Ahhhh ...... Heavenly.

The resort has an activities center w/computer area (no WiFi), games, concierge, info, etc. There is a nice swimming pool, hot tub, ample parking, attractive mountain theme buildings & lovely landscaping.......all blended into the mountainside, on one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the world. The resort provided a free pass for the beach (10 minute walk). There is a nice shopping center with groceries, various restaurants, bank, shops, etc. across the highway from the resort. Very convenient.

We attended the Member Services Update which was, actually, quite informative (unusual) with no heavy pressure to buy more points (after we said that we were satisfied with our current points) - meeting took about an hour. This left the day open to explore Zephyr Cove - lovely town with lots of history and a very laid back atmosphere.

That night we went on our dinner cruise. The MS Dixie Shuttle picked us up in front of the resort at 4:30; the cruise departed at 5:00. We enjoyed the breathtaking sunset on Lake Tahoe, as we cruised toward Emerald Bay. We arrived at the Bay just after dusk, so couldn't really see Vikensholm Castle or the bay - the captain did shine lights on the shore so we could make out a little of the Castle. Ah, but that marvelous sunset made up for this loss! Dinner (surprisingly good!) was served after we left Emerald Bay and headed back toward Zephyr Cove. Music & dancing was fun after dinner. We enjoyed the full moon over Lake Tahoe and the lights twinkling along the shore as we approached Zephyr Cove at 11:30 p.m. All in all, a lovely evening and well worth the price.

We enjoyed The Resort at South Shore very much. It is quiet, friendly, welcoming, and moved at a slow relaxing pace. We suggest this resort to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation


We left on Saturday morning headed for the Northern California Coast and back down through the volcanoes & lava beds - with plans to return to Lake Tahoe in one week. See our next review.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Lake Tahoe and had a wonderful time! We stayed at Resort at South Shore from May 11-17, 2008. We lucked out and the week was unseasonably warm and we swam a few days through the week. The pool and hot tub were very clean.

The resort sent us a bottle of champagne and a 'just married' balloon when they found out it was our honeymoon. It isn't the most romantic place but it was quiet (we were there the week before the high season started) and the room was plenty big and the fire-place was very nice to have. We had a two bedroom unit (we used his parents time-share) and it was clean and decorated very modern. Great location & extremely easy to find. Only a few minutes from great gambling, great food, the MS Dixie dock, and Zephyr Cove stables. There isn't a view of the lake but the hotel is just a short walk from the beach.
