Luxe mod lodge with slopeside pools, firepits, ski concierges and rib-sticking Cali fare
The Ritz-Carlton Club Lake Tahoe melts into its pine-laden landscape with sloping roofs, rough-hewn timber and slabs of local granite. Rambling but intimate, this cabin on steroids — part of the the Ritz-Carlton’s exclusive Destination Club — harks back to the great national park lodges of the early 20th century. Immense panoramic windows frame the chimneylike tips of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the swaths of forest around the hotel. Interiors have a clean-lined modernism tempered by warm tones, rustic materials and plush textures.
Bed & Bath
Club Residences feel like your family’s private mountain getaway, with a playful color scheme that’s a welcome break from the typical lodge rusticity — think a pumpkin-orange wall with peach and cinnamon armchairs and mint-green ottomans. Living rooms (with fireplaces, of course) open onto fully equipped kitchens with Viking appliances. Master suites with kingsize beds have walk-in closets and bathrooms with heated stone floors.
During prime winter and summer months, Destination Club visitors have access to the adjacent hotel’s facilities, including the excellent Manzanita restaurant, which offers such dishes as locally made Liberty Farms duck meatballs served with mission figs and lucques olives, or messy Prather Ranch grass-fed hamburgers. The spa has 16 rooms, with treatments themed around water and the woods. Then there are the slopes. You’ve got ski-in/ski-out access to local favorite Northstar’s runs. Mountain concierges will do whatever you ask: pull your boots off, greet you with warm chocolate chip cookies, collect your equipment for overnight storage, deliver you by skimobile to your snowboard lesson, or bring you a towel as you splash about in one of two slopeside pools (or one of the multiple hot tubs). In the summer, they can map out hiking trails, hook you up with mountain biking gear and plan other outdoor adventures.
