Cedar House: Your new Tahoe base camp

  • 12 December 2013

It’s cold and you’ve got a choice:

Huddle inside your hibernaculum (pompous word for man cave; Google it) or, hell, go to Tahoe.

We say go to Tahoe.

And for that, we prefer Truckee's Cedar House Sport Hotel.

A) Because it's the perfect mix of modern luxury and mountain simplicity, with its haute-cabin aesthetic and Egyptian cotton everything.

B) Because it's spitting distance from the slopes of Squaw Valley and Northstar without being locked-in to either — or even locked-in to skiing.

Cedar House’s concierge can set you up with any sort of adventure you've got in mind, from snowshoeing to backcountry reconnoiters.

And when the day's adventures are done, refueling comes courtesy of the hotel's lauded restaurant, Stella — four-course tasting menu and juniper-glazed venison hash by Food & Wine award nominee Josh Burton.

Plus they've got a handful of EV chargers — including Tesla's rapid variety.

So get packing. Leave the winter nesting to the bears.
