Cozy, laid-back and nestled up against the forest, Forest Suites Resort offers outdoor lovers a year-round escape. “Location is a huge draw,” says Oyster -- pristine natural beauty surrounds guests in every season.

In any season, a ride up the Heavenly Gondola soars right overhead and lends sweeping views of the Squaw Valley. In the winter months, the snowcapped peaks of Heavenly Mountain sit in the hotel’s backyard, and shopping, dining and a movie theater are a few hundred feet away at Heavenly Village. After a day on the slopes, big-name casinos are half a block down the street. When the snow melts and the weather warms, sandy Lakeside Beach is a 15-minute walk away.

Dark wood furnishings and simple, homey decor give the hotel a relaxed mountain-lodge vibe. Standard rooms are basic, but the apartment-style suites are spacious with full kitchens, fireplaces and patios and sleep four to six guests. There is no restaurant on site, but fun seasonal activities include a hot chocolate bar and fire pits for marshmallow roasting in winter and spring. A daily wine and cheese reception is offered throughout the year.

In eco-conscious Tahoe fashion, guests can swap out daily housekeeping for a bottle of wine, and bath products are organic with biodegradable packaging. Wi-Fi, ample covered parking and a breakfast buffet are included with the daily resort fee.

From the press:
  • "The location of this resort is excellent -- 5½ acres bordering a forest, right behind the Heavenly Village, a half block from the casinos, and adjacent to a supermarket, cinema, and shops" --Fodor's
  • "Location is a huge draw at Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village, which is situated about 100 meters from the lifts at Heavenly Village. The hotel, while close to the action of South Lake Tahoe village, is also relatively peaceful and shielded from noise" -- Oyster

Suites, even though older were clean and comfortable. Hot breakfast was excellent!
Other Comments
Only bad thing is you have to walk outside of your building to get to the building that has the office and breakfast. Ok now, but winter will be cold. If you plan on cooking, bring everything with you. Don't even have salt & pepper! Few dishes, etc.
