Want to really kick it like a local when in Tahoe? Base yourself in a private residence, like those of Great Bear Lodge. Rather than a room or suite, each accommodation at this Village at Northstar stay is a chalet, designed to make you feel like you’re living in Truckee – less than a half-hour drive from the California side of the lake – and not just visiting it. You’ll get a kitchen, a washer and dryer, even an outdoor space that looks onto the village and mountains.
Although it may be tempting to spend hours admiring these vistas or curling up around your fireplace, another luxe amenity, don’t forget that there’s lots to do. Much of it you can enjoy with help from the property: In winter, there are a ski room and lockers (the slopes are walking distance away), plus an ice rink nearby, while the warmer months bring barbecues around the grill and dips in the pool and hot tub. Year round, a fitness room, game room and steam room are also open. You’ll begin to feel not only like a resident of Tahoe, but part of a whole community within this world-famous region.
Chalets vary, but all feature Wi-Fi, air conditioning and a sleeper sofa. You’ll also have a balcony, deck or terrace/patio, for admiring those mountain and village views, plus a fireplace, kitchen, washer and dryer.
With the perfect mix of winter and summer activities, Tahoe is the best of both when it comes to a California getaway. From majestic hikes, adventurous bike rides and tons of water sports to skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling excursions on the Sierras, the area is full of outdoor excitement, and the Lodge puts it all in easy reach – the lake is a short, 20-minute drive. Also nearby are boutiques; galleries; and casinos offering shows, concerts and restaurants that you won’t want to miss.
