Deerfield Lodge has seen a lot in its five decades at South Lake Tahoe, and that includes a fire that resulted in the closing of the lodge for a year and a half. The silver lining of that event, at least for visitors to Lake Tahoe, is that the boutique hotel has reopened with brand-new suites and fresh decor. The accommodations begin at the king rooms and move up from there through a range of suites that tops off with the Heavenly Suite; all rooms include a fireplace and kitchenette, and some enjoy a Jacuzzi tub and washer/dryer setups. The Deerfield is dog-friendly, surprisingly enough for a lodging of this quality. It is near the intersection of Ski Run Boulevard and Pioneer Trail, making it conveniently located to most of the South Shore's main attractions. To help with ease, they offer a self-service check-in process for guests who prefer to no person-to-person contact.
