A year-round destination, Resort at Squaw Creek brings an elegant vibe to Tahoe. It’s an ideal base when the epic Sierra Nevada winters set in and skiers and snowboarders flock to Squaw Valley’s world-famous slopes. And it transitions seamlessly into sunny summers for mountain adventures and golf getaways at the championship course. Its funky wooden entryway, which has signs for the 1960 Olympic Village still intact, as well as historical plaques and photos throughout, all nod to this mountain town’s roots.
Bed & Bath
The resort’s 405 guestrooms and suites have a relaxed vibe, done up in natural woods and earth tones. All rooms have either views of the Sierra Nevada range or verdant meadows; Fireplace Forest View Suites are fitted with a gas fireplace, kitchen (with dishwasher), ceramic-tiled bathroom and flat-screen TVs. But with all the activities on hand, a stay here is not about the indoors. It’s about proximity. And here, you get ski-in/ski-out access in the winter and great golf and hiking come summer.
Open late spring through mid-October, the Resort at Squaw Creek’s 18-hole championship golf course offers gorgeous views, and family tees are available 150 yards from the green for kids who want to play with their parents. The resort also has a year-round kids program, Mountain Buddies, for children four to 12. Activities include nature hikes, tennis, snowshoeing and sledding. The panoramic mountain views at Six Peaks Grille (our favorite of the five on-site restaurants) rival the fresh food, and its outdoor seating area is warmed with heaters and a firepit in the winter. The heated pool makes it easy to swim in any weather, and the hot tub is within safe sprinting distance. The spa can nurse your skin back into shape after a few days in the great outdoors; book the Yonka Hydrating Facial and return home with an all-natural glow.
In the Area
Squaw Valley’s superb slopes are stretched over five peaks, with sprawling views of North Lake Tahoe. Take off on one of the countless trails that wind down to the main base and quaint town center, or in the summer, drive 15 minutes to pristine Lake Tahoe for all things aquatic: swimming, sailing, waterskiing, kayaking and more. Those looking to relax can get a fresh, made-to-order smoothie at Mountain Nectar in the pedestrian village. Or, take the aerial tram up to High Camp on the weekends for a delicious dinner and 360-degree views of the pine-dotted range from the mountaintop pool. PlumpJack Cafe & Bar is an oenophile’s oasis thanks to an impressive cellar stocked with many hard-to-find California vintages.
How to Get There
Chef Walkins of six peaks blew me away.. celebrating my anniversary was such a romantic and over the top culinary experience.. delicate fusion of local and exotic bites, with each taste more delicious than the next I highly recommend this squaw mountain gem.. ask for amber she is knowledgeable and non intrusive giving you the best dining experience any foodie can ask for... thank you 🙏
We LOVE Squaw Creek. I think the reason has everything to do with the staff. We adore the people we see every time we go to Six Peaks for dinner and they remember us! Everyone from the time we check in until the time we check out are nice, helpful and professional. The spa is relaxing and comfortable and I find myself wanting to go more and more. The only reason for sleep quality just had to do with a very hard pillow and our room was right next to the elevator. BUT we didn't ask to be moved. My guess is if we had then the staff would have been accommodating. We love this place when we are by ourselves for a weekend get away no kids as well as when we have the whole crew. Fun for all!!
Stayed for the weekend to celebrate my 40th and the staff made my family and I feel like VIP. Service food and their willingness to accommodate our group was amazing! there was a bottle of champagne waiting in our room when we arrived. The night of my birthday they easily happily accommodated our party of twenty! Best birthday ever!
My husband & I got married at The Resort at Squaw Creek on July 28, 2018 and absolutely could not have been happier with our experience! The hotel was a fantastic place to stay for us, family and friends the week of the wedding. Our guests raved about not only our wedding, but the entire experience the had during the days leading up to our wedding. We looked at several other venues in Lake Tahoe and while all are stunning, what stood out to us about The Resort at Squaw Creek is how "all inclusive" it is. Guests could stay there, they have wonderful pool/spa(s), have several restaurants, and a bar for us to enjoy after the wedding. They by far offered the most in one location vs. anywhere else we looked at & it was PERFECT for our guests who had traveled from near and far to be there for our wedding. Rooms were very nice, particularly the fires place suite. Our guests who stayed at The Resort for our wedding there had the best time!!! I would recommend The Resort at Squaw Creek to anyone planning on getting married in Tahoe, especially those who want a resort on site for guests to stay at!!
Typically, I’d only say that a place like Disneyland was magical, but thanks to John and Mel, our kids’ dreams came true. We were a group of three families with seven kids and most people who saw us coming might turn the other direction. We had showed up looking for a Halloween Harvest Festival that we thought would be a huge celebration with rides and food trucks and a field of pumpkins. When it turned out that it was a smaller event and the kids looked disappointed, John made it his mission to put smiles on all of our faces. From hosting an apple bobbing competition to organizing a Build A Bear event with Mel, it was truly an unbelievable experience. As I write this, all of our kids are laughing and having the best time of their life. As parents, we are all incredibly thankful that people like John exist in this world. We do appreciate the time we’ve had and we can’t wait to come back.
