Welcome to a cozy Kind lodge snug up against Olympic ski slopes near the northern shore of Lake Tahoe. 

The Setting

The Olympic Committee struck gold when choosing Squaw Valley as the site for the 1960 Winter Olympics. With the picturesque Sierra Nevada slopes surrounding and the northern shores of beautiful blue Lake Tahoe a stone’s throw away, the only thing that could make it more idyllic is PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. This cozy lodge offers you a true year-round Tahoe experience, ski in and out, raft down the Truckee River, hike and bike thousands of acres of nearby trails, all while being steps from The Village at Squaw Valley’s shopping and dining. What we love most about this Trip Advisor Greenleader is their PlumpJack Foundation, which unites PlumpJack’s many philanthropic and service pursuits under one umbrella. The foundation fosters hope and enacts positive change in their community while striving to answer “what can I do that will make your life better, today, right now?" 

Sleep and Sanctuary

Cozy on up in PlumpJack’s 55 well-appointed rooms and eight different varieties of suites. Wake up to picturesque views of the snowy Sierra Nevada Mountains (some rooms) and have your coffee in a plush robe on the luxurious bed. A perfect homebase for all that North Lake Tahoe offers, indeed. Your four-legged friends will want to join in all your Tahoe explorations, so PlumpJack encourages you to bring your pup. 

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Your tastebuds will thank you for this stay considering PlumpJack Cafe, widely regarded as Lake Tahoe’s premier dining destination, is on the premises. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Jack Connell, the menu here changes seasonally to take full advantage of the bounty of fresh produce available locally. The award-winning wine list provides a perfect complement to your meal, and renowned winemakers join the fray throughout the year for special wine inspired dinners. No better way to cap a day on the slopes than an exquisite fine dining experience. In-room dining is also available. 

The Art of De-stressing

Regardless of season, your dance card at PlumpJack is going to be full. Of course, feel free to unwind in repose amid the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe, read a book by the fire pit or take a dip in the pool (summer) or jacuzzi (winter). But, for those Kind Travelers who de-stress with movement and adventure, this is your place. With, ski-in and ski-out at Squaw Valley Ski Resort, PlumpJack’s location puts world-class skiing at your doorstep, quite literally. There are miles and miles of trails for you to explore, on foot or cross country ski. You can grab a complimentary cruiser bike and hit the Truckee River path to Tahoe City and relax under the sun at the many public Lake Tahoe beaches. After staring at that deep blue you’ll want to get in it or on it, so grab a kayak or paddleboard and just go with the flow.

By Uber

It's been a bureaucratic battle, but the ride-sharing service Uber is now a reality at Tahoe. Given the bi-state nature of both the North Shore and South Shore, it wasn't feasible to have the service on just one side of the lake, but with Nevada and California now both on the same page, visitors are able to click on their apps and catch a ride. There are still some restrictions, however, and due to the specific rules of the road, during off-hours it may be easier to get an Uber ride that picks up on the California side of the line than in Nevada.
