Have you hit the slopes this season? With all the recent snowfall lately, there’s no better time to get your ski on. One of our favorite winter getaway spots is The Cedar House Sport Hotel, just a couple hours away in North Lake Tahoe.


Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway, the hotel is close, convenient and cozy. So even if the ski runs aren’t your thing, you can cuddle up with a White Russian on property.



Recommended Hotel:  The Cedar House Sport Hotel. Surrounded by pines and snow-capped mountains, the contemporary but naturally inspired architecture makes a striking impression. Built from recycled and reclaimed materials, the structure sets a green tone of sustainability and environmentalism.



This hotel not only wants to host you, it hopes to make a better planet for all. Modern and comfortable with an organic twist, the rooms are spacious and plush. They included a neutral palette, top quality linens, imported down comforters and plenty of top technology.


Check In:  10918 Brockway Road, Truckee. 866-582-5655, cedarhousesporthotel.com


Check Out:  Stella. Under the skilled leadership of Executive Chef Jacob Burton, the hotel’s signature restaurant is a destination unto itself. A creative and delicious menu awaits you.


Feast on dishes like house cured duck pate with a frisee and pickled onion salad, cara cara orange and crostinis; braised beef short rib with pommes puree, bacon wrapped babay carrots and braising jus reduction; and finish with homemade banana cake with vanilla-cream cheese frosting and walnut ice cream. One word: yum.

Book Friday and Saturday night at rack rate and the third night is on the hotel! Chose between arriving on Thursday evening or staying through Monday morning.
