I don’t like to camp. In fact, I really despise it. But if there was any reason to change my mind, Basecamp in South Lake Tahoe might be it.
Recommended Hotel: Basecamp. This new boutique hotel was built for exploring the incredible lakes, trails, and mountains in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, a short 5 minute walk to the lake and an even shorter 4 minute walk to the Heavenly Gondola., the 50 stylish rooms are designed for adventure and relaxation seekers alike, with modern amenities, plenty of style, and affordable prices.
Check In: 4143 Cedar Avenue in South Lake Tahoe. 530-208-0180, basecampholtels.com
Check Out: The Green features, including all new double-paned windows and doors, efficient heaters, dual flush toilets, opt-in laundry for towels, recycling bins in every room, and reclaimed barn wood trim pieces in the design.
Don’t Miss: Let’s take a look at a few of the awesome amenities: Rooftop hot-tub with views of the mountain; two fire pits to share stories and roast your s’mores; intimate bar serving gourmet hot chocolate and local brews; communal dinners to break bread with other explorers (Wed, Fri, Sat); indoor areas to lock your bike and all the tools you need to fix your bike before hitting the roads and trails; Places to lock and store your board outside your room so that you have more space to enjoy your room. They also have a bench for you to wax and adjust your equipment before hitting the slopes; some pet friendly rooms so you can bring your best friend with you.
