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