A postcard-perfect winter getaway in beautiful Lake Tahoe, with nightly coffee, tea and hot chocolate

The Lowdown

From the shoreline to the snowcaps, Lake Tahoe knows how to show you a good time. And if you’re looking to stay right on the sands, with views of the peaks in the distance, you’re hard-pressed to find a better hotel-and-condo retreat than Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge & Spa. In fact, you’re hard-pressed to find any other all-lakefront hotel-and-condo retreat, period, because this South Lake Tahoe escape is the only one. It’s also a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, owing in part to this fabulous location, and in part to its list of fun things to do, indoors and out.
In the winter, the area is famed for its wealth of winter sporting options, from skiing and snowmobiling to ice skating and snow-tubing. If you’d rather take it slow, the year-round M.S. Dixie II cruiser offers scenic lake tours, or you can hang back at the resort and unwind with a hot-stone massage or reflexology treatment at Elements Day Spa. And when you’ve had your fill of the panoramic vistas of lake and peaks, get a change of scenery. Head off to the various restaurants and bars that are within convenient walking distance.


 Every Lodge room at the property is comfortably appointed with lodge-pine furnishings and a gas-burning fireplace. Views from your balcony or patio look directly onto the lake. Take your pick from a room with one or two queen beds, and you can also opt to stay in a room with a fully equipped kitchen.


When you need some assistance in the R&R department, let Elements Day Spa take over, performing a facial, body treatment, skincare treatment or massage. Offerings for the last range from reflexology to hot-stone options, all designed to help you release tension and give tired muscles a boost. 


Tahoe is truly a vacation destination for all seasons. During peak months, you’ll find prime skiing and snowboarding conditions on the local trails, which you can get to on the property’s shuttle. The postcard-perfect winter scenery is also prime for ice skating, snowmobiling and snow-tubing. The gondolas open with ski season – typically around November 20 – and keep operating even after the snow melts, meaning that you can enjoy yet more panoramic views of the scenery in the warmer months. If you visit during autumn, we recommend horseback riding, hot-air ballooning and minigolf.

Lake Tahoe is beautiful. This hotel was nice. We had a suite. The room we stayed in had a view of Lake Tahoe. This hotel didn’t offer breakfast. There is a lot of restaurants close by. It would be nice if they did offer breakfast because of the $$$. The weather was cold and icy. We could have cooked our meal in our room but room service doesn’t clean the kitchen and I didn’t want to clean up after ourselves. I am on vacation

View of the fabulous blue !

We decided to take a short trip to Lake Tahoe for our anniversary. Browsing for places to stay, we couldn't find a better deal for a better place with a better view of Lake Tahoe !

We had our hopes slightly low because of how hotels usually post brilliant pictures of views supposedly from their room windows but then you realize that the view is probably only an enhanced edited picture very far away from what you see !

But the minute we entered the room, we didnt blink for a while ! It was like the view surprising us by saying "happy anniversary" ! An amazing panoramic view of the entire breadth of the lake. That in itself was a great way to start our weekend.

The hotel is located very close to the main street in south lake tahoe. Very close to restaurants, groceries and coffee shops. I would highly recommend this place not just for the view it offers but also for pricing.

All in all, it was worth the trip and the stay only made it better and better each time we watched the lake from the patio !

Excellent location on the south side of the lake with room views looking towards the lake and a nice balcony.
The staff was very friendly and there was complementary coffee and tea in the morning. The outside of the building has a worn and tired appearance. Much of the exterior is weathered and cracked. With that being said our room was absolutely gorgeous and well decorated. Wonderful rustic log type furniture with a gas fireplace in each room. We were able to walk to several eateries and it is only a five minute drive to get to the casino and heavenly Mountain area. Stepping out on the beach in the evening and looking north over the lake you’ll see more stars than you’ve ever seen in your life!!!!

The view was great

You can see the nice view from the room especially when sunsets. There is private beach and swimming pool to hangout. We found supermarket nearby so you can cook either at the kitchen in the room or bbq outside. Nice place for chill out. 部屋からの景色が最高で、特に夕日の時はベランダからとても綺麗な景色を見ることができます。ビーチでジェットスキーなどもやっていて、楽しいアクティビティがたくさんあります。

Final Summer Trip

We took a last minute trip to South Lake Tahoe before school started. They gave us a 3rd story room. The room a 2 queen beds. No A/C though. As we were on the 3rd floor, we were able to keep the sliding glass door open. The room view was beautiful of the sunset off the lake. It was very quiet. Restaurants were within walking distance. The building was old but we had our own private beach and there was also pool. We have a very relaxing trip before school started. Because there was no a/c, I am giving it a 4 star as our room was warn the first night.
