  • Walk 10 minutes to Heavenly ski resort's gondola, and zoom up the mountain for a breathtaking birds-eye view of the Tahoe Basin
  • A five-minute drive brings you to the casinos of Stateline, Nevada, just over the California border

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


For travelers seeking an extended stay in the South Lake Tahoe area, The Lodge at Lake Tahoe is well-placed near the area’s main attractions. Rustic-style lodgings come with either full kitchens or kitchenettes, and guests here have access to the barbecue grills year-round -- a boon for those who prefer to prepare their own meals, or just want to relax and dine at their leisure.

The South Lake Tahoe area is chock-a-block with commercial strip malls filled with restaurants, tourist shops and the like. The Lodge at Lake Tahoe is set back from the fray but just a 10-minute walk to the action, making it easy for those who want to dine out or buy sundry items.

You can also hop on a local bus, which has a stop on the main road right outside the lodge’s entrance, and check out the hills and trails of Heavenly mountain resort. A skier and snowboarder’s paradise half the year and a favorite spot for outdoor enthusiasts the other half, Heavenly is the Tahoe area’s largest mountain resort and draws much of the traffic to the area.

Even couch potatoes can get in on the mountain action with a heart-stopping 12-minute ride up the Heavenly gondola where unbeatable views of the Tahoe Basin await.

Travelers can also avoid communing with nature altogether, and take a five-minute drive to the casinos of Stateline, Nevada, just over the California border.

Although the location of the Lodge is a crowd-pleaser, the plain country décor may not appeal to all. Additionally, the lack of air-conditioning, stairs to the second level and repeat visits from bears to the garbage area could be a major turn-off.
