While most of the motels erected during the boom of the 1960 Olympics have shut down (and are now falling victim to the wrecking ball), Ferrari’s Crown Resort has managed to keep its foothold on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Over the decades it has acquired surrounding properties and merged them into a compound of buildings with a total of 71 rooms in different configurations. Forty rooms have lake views, many with balconies. Rooms with kitchenettes are available, as are suites with full kitchens. Amenities include free high-speed internet, community barbecue grills by the lakefront and complimentary continental breakfast served daily. Jet Ski, standup paddleboard and kayak rentals are a short walk up the beach. The rooms surround two heated swimming pools with one indoor hot tub and one outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake. Family-owned and -operated since 1957, Ferrari’s Crown Resort is a smoke-free property with no pets allowed.
