Resort at Squaw Creek

If you are accustomed to plain living…plain states living that is, with no mountains, and the only elevation that you experience is being in a high-rise building, passing a landfill or riding the EL, an elevated commuter train, then heading west to Resort at Squaw Creek, the full-service, four-diamond, luxury resort in North Lake Tahoe, California is a life-changing vacation experience.

Resort at Squaw Creek can be accessed by car or shuttle from the Reno Airport--which is just over 40 miles away. The resort, which is in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, is a hot spot in a cool place as mentioned by Conde Nast Traveler-in their ranking of the resort as “One of the top 150 best resorts in North America” and “One of the top 50 ski hotels“. It is also situated at the base of Squaw Valley where the 1960 Winter Olympics took place.

Please note that the resort isn’t limited to winter activities and only in operation during the ski season. They have year-round appeal and transition perfectly into Spring, Summer and Fall with other activities, including golf and fishing.
Accommodations

Lodge life has never been better! The design of the resort is a new take on the old school lodge. It is comfortable, plush and toasty, with the presence of fine wood accents like cabins of old, yet modern and sleek offering residential luxury that makes guests feel at home away from home.

Resort at Squaw Creek has 405 luxurious resort rooms and suites with amenities including pillow-top beds, guest robes, refrigerators, dual-head showers, custom furnishings, slate and ceramic floors, granite counters, and flat-screen TVs.

The resort has Deluxe rooms (http://www.squawcreek.com/lake-tahoe-deluxe-rooms.php), Fireplace suites (http://www.squawcreek.com/lake-tahoe-fireplace-suites.php), and Bi-level penthouses (http://www.squawcreek.com/penthouses-lake-tahoe.php). Suites and penthouses also feature gas fireplaces and resort-style kitchens stocked with china, glassware and silverware. ( http://www.squawcreek.com/lake-tahoe-resorts.php )

Views of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains from the guestrooms are an additional amenity. The glorious vistas alone are worth the trip.

I used to frequent Squaw Creek, but my destination of choice in Lake Tahoe is now Northstar, especially with the recent Ritz Carlton addition.
