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.

Great hotel and location excellent

We just wanted a short overnite get away from Sacramento. It had been years since my husband had been to Lake Tahoe and we are only 2 hours or less away, depending on road construction and traffic. I found this great hotel, where every room has a lakeview and balcony. Room was immaculate. Interesting rustic furniture that fit in with the mountain vibe. Hotel has a pool and whirlpool. There is a beautiful beach for walking. Very friendly and helpful staff that provided restaurant re.commendations. Plus NO HATEFUL RESORT FEE!

Lakeshore Lodge

We enjoyed our stay very much. I highly recommend a lakefront view on floor 2 or 3. There is an elevator so don’t worry about stairs if that’s an issue for you. The beach is clean and of course the lake is crystal clear. If you like to kayak there is a rental place within walking distance. The room was a standard king bed size. Not luxurious but not small. Be aware that the rooms do not have air conditioning. Most times they don’t need it, especially if you open the balcony door for airflow. That’s works until the really annoying gaggle of Canada geese start partying at 3am. Then you have to close the balcony door. South Lake Tahoe is where the most action is around the Lake. There are casinos, restaurants, bars etc. The good news is that when you’re at Lakeshore on the beach none of that scene is noticeable. But if that’s your thing you’re a short drive away. This is not the most modern fancy place in Tahoe by far. But it is well located, insulated, has a really nice beach and is moderately priced for Tahoe. I would also recommend for families. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Great views , service not so much

After long international flight the first words that greeted us were you came too early check in is at 16:00.
I thought it was so rude!!
We came to relax for our babymoon, after finally getting our room it was very nice and roomy and the view was great. The lodge itself a bit outdated.. the pool is horrible not like in the picture .. be aware of the dark spots inside the pool.
