Rustic charm is more than a descriptive phrase at the Tahoe Valley Lodge. Rooms with names like Bears’ Den, Twin Eagle and Wildlife are individually decorated with boughs of pine, metallic animal cutouts and Native American pieces. They proclaim the Lake Tahoe spirit of water, sky and natural beauty. Whatever season you visit, the Tahoe Valley Lodge delivers fun. One- to five-night ski packages at nearby Sierra at Tahoe come with discounted rental equipment or a free hot wax treatment. Into water sports? Head to Tahoe Key’s Marina, less than 2 miles away. Rent a boat, board a charter or simply sit and contemplate life with a drink in your hand at a nearby dining/drinking venue. Desire more color than the sun can provide? Included in your stay is WiFi and phone calls, local and long-distance. Heat up some snacks in the microwave, curl up in front of a gas fireplace (available in every room) or borrow free movies to watch on the in-room DVD player. For the ultimate in romance and indulgence, book the Whirlpool King Suite. Two 40-inch flat-screen televisions keep everyone happy in their viewing choices. Included in your stay is free parking and a free tanning session at their tanning salon.
