Overview

Family favorite walking distance to Tahoe’s Heavenly gondola, with huge rooms, two pools and free breakfast

The Lowdown

At the edge of Heavenly Village, a short walk to the gondola, Forest Suites Resort is a family favorite with huge rooms and resort-style amenities. The vast lobby is done up in traditional mountain style, with chalet-like eaves, a centerpiece stone fireplace and an eye-catching metal chandelier. Guestrooms start at a huge 650 square feet and sleep four or more guests in king beds and pull-out sleeper sofas. Most have full kitchens and open-plan living and dining areas, plus en-suite bathrooms with single vanities and over-tub showers. For larger groups or longer stays, two-bedroom suites offer an extra bathroom and more living space. While there’s no restaurant, guests can fuel up on a hearty (and free) hot breakfast spread of sausage, bacon, eggs, fruit, oatmeal, baked goods and more. Hot coffee is available in the lobby round the clock, and there are fun seasonal food treats including a wine and cheese reception and s’mores sessions by the outdoor fire pit. The hotel has an outdoor pool (open in spring and summer only), an XBOX game room, occasional movie nights and special events like weekend pony rides, a hot chocolate bar and ice cream socials.

In the Area

Catch the Heavenly Gondola up for pristine pistes and stunning Tahoe vistas. Whether you’re snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling, there’s plenty of winter sporting fun to be had off-property in the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. When ski season ends, Adventure Peak (9,100 feet) picks up the action with a rock-climbing wall, restaurant and hiking trails galore. South Lake Tahoe is right by the Nevada border, where all the casinos are located. Harrah’s, 10 minutes down the road, is the largest, and it frequently hosts big name entertainers in its South Shore Room.

The Forest Suites is located adjacent to Heavenly Village which puts everything within a short walk surrounding the Heavenly Gondola base area. This property is a great central location for year round adventures near beautiful Lake Tahoe. Casinos are one block away offering more entertainment options.

Rooms/ suites are comfortable, clean, spacious and family friendly.
Breakfast is great and so is the wine and cheese. Plenty to do on property; pool & hot tub,workout room, pool table and video games but it's so conveniently located you can walk to the mall/ grocery store,shops/movies or casinos. They're across the street or an easy 1-2 blocks walk. The walk to the lake takes a slow 10 mins or less. For the skier you can't get much closer to getting up the mountain.
