Stay at Resort at Squaw Creek near Lake Tahoe, CA

Sumptuous AAA Four Diamond Resort on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore

Tucked into the Sierra Nevada mountains, the AAA Four Diamond award-winning Resort at Squaw Creek sits just 10 minutes from Lake Tahoe’s north shore. The resort’s location makes it a worthy starting point for outdoor pursuits in the rugged Squaw Valley. Hiking trails wind through the property, and an onsite fly-fishing center allows visitors to cast a line.

The resort incorporates its landscape into its full-service spa, which won fifth place in Condé Nast Traveler's 2013 Readers' Poll of best spas in North America and the Caribbean. Use your $50 credit towards a specialty massage or facial. Elsewhere, you can take a dip in a heated outdoor pool or relax in one of three hot tubs. An ice-skating rink and on-site cross-country skiing allow visitors to indulge in winter sports.

Cascades Restaurant, one of the resort's four dining venues, offers a breakfast buffet and stunning views of Squaw Valley, and Six Peaks Grille serves up regional cuisine alongside small plates and steak and seafood.

The deluxe rooms have picture windows that overlook Tahoe National Forest. Fireplace suites have separate living rooms with gas fireplaces and resort-style kitchens.

Squaw Valley: Hiking and Cycling Through Mountains on Lake Tahoe's North Shore

Located about a 15-minute drive from North Lake Tahoe, Squaw Creek is situated amid some of northern California's most revered scenery and varied terrain. The resort rents out bicycles by the hour, including Marin cruisers for adults, Trek mountain bikes for kids, and tagalong carts for infants. Use these to hop on Truckee River Trail, a gently rolling, paved path that follows a crystal-clear river 7 miles to Tahoe City. There, you’ll happen upon a paved trail with views of the Lake of the Sky and access to Tahoe Vista's beaches 10 miles to the north.

Lupine and buckwheat paint the mountainside, and the High Camp here is a nice jumping-off point to hiking trails. If you’re unaccustomed to the high altitude, you may find yourself easily winded on even short hikes; still, the 1.5-mile jaunt uphill to Emigrant Peak is worth the trip, as you get 360-degree views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada.
