Basecamp South Lake Tahoe
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Summer camp-chic ambiance with fire pits for nightly s’mores
- Happy hour takes place daily in the Beer Garden with live music every night
- Five-minute walk to the beach and to the gondola lift for rides to the slopes
Hip, funky and affordable, the Basecamp Hotel is a boutique addition to the South Lake Tahoe scene. The hotel is just a five-minute stroll to the Heavenly Gondola lifts and to the lake where guests get free access to the private Lakeside Beach. There are big-name casinos just across the road, and Heavenly Mountain Resort is also a five-minute walk away, where you’ll find restaurants, a cinema and an outdoor ice rink (November-April). In warmer months, there’s hiking in the Desolation Wilderness or on the Lam Watah Trail, and golf at the nearby Bijou Park and Zephyr Cove Park courses.
Complimentary continental breakfast is served daily in the Beer Garden, and s’mores are also available on Fridays and Saturdays on the Lobby Deck from 7-9 p.m. During summer months, the hotel offers rooftop yoga at 9 a.m. every Sunday through Labour Day (mats provided). "Happy Camper Hour" is available every day from 4-6 p.m. It is a family-friendly take on happy hour, featuring camp-themed games and complimentary snacks in the summer and a gourmet hot chocolate bar in the winter. Regular happy hour still takes place daily in the Beer Garden with live music every night, which includes a selection of craft beer as well as brews from South of North Brewing Co., the on-site brewery open daily from 2-10 p.m.
Cabin-style rooms have an outdoorsy theme -- think tent stakes for gear racks, tarpaulins hung behind the bed as a headboard and camping motifs on the shower curtains. Fridges are provided and there’s a mini cooler box filled with ice to keep drinks chilled. Most rooms don’t have air conditioning, though they do provide fans (this is not uncommon in Lake Tahoe), and there are no elevators, so request a room on the ground floor if you have mobility issues.
