Lake-View Rooms near Tahoe Activities
Lake Tahoe draws visitors not only for its breathtaking scenery—the Sierra Nevadas form a ring around the water—but also for the hiking, biking, and skiing that take place in the surrounding mountains. Set on a private beach, Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge & Spa provides premier access to Tahoe’s restaurants, activities, boating, and casinos.
Every room at the lodge has a private balcony or patio where you can enjoy views of the lake. Newly renovated lodge rooms feature knotty-pine furnishings and gas fireplaces. Table lamps with black-bear figurines and Western-inspired wall tapestries enhance the rustic atmosphere. If you’re in need of a recharge, head to the lodge’s Elements Spa for a massage, body wrap, or facial.
South Lake Tahoe, California: Year-Round Haven for Outdoor Adventures and Late-Night Revelry
Lake Tahoe has no real off-season; people find ways to make use of its pristine water, beaches, and mountains all year long. In the summer, the lake’s clear, freshwater surface—which straddles the California-Nevada border—is dotted with swimmers, boaters, and jet skiers. A moderately easy hike to the base of Lower Eagle Falls reveals breathtaking views of the waterfalls crashing down from above.
A diverse crowd of spectators gathers at night for South Lake Tahoe’s various events, which range from wine and food festivals to rock concerts and fireworks displays. A few miles northwest of South Lake Tahoe sits Stateline, Nevada, where a handful of casinos host high-stakes games of blackjack and solitaire.
