Summer is in full swing here in the Tahoe basin, and we are loving life at Cedar Glen Lodge! We are getting a little spoiled with these perfectly warm beach days and clear, crisp evenings that are perfect for making new friends over s’mores by the fire pit. The month of July brought us so many wonderful guests, it’s been such a pleasure to share the beauty of the area with so many people, and we are looking forward to more of the same in August. Won’t you come join us?
We have everything ready and waiting for you to make the most of your summer vacation by the lake. We’ve got beach chairs and towels, as well as coolers to load up and take across the street to enjoy a day at one of the best beaches on the lake! Or, if you prefer, spend a day relaxing by our outdoor heated pool and hot tub! All the gear is set and waiting at our ping pong table, volleyball/badminton court and putting green. Don’t forget we have a beautiful picnic area with grills available for you to enjoy a friends and family barbecue by the lake. Of course, there is never any need to venture far to have fun with all of our outdoor amenities, but if you are in the mood for exploration, our knowledgeable staff is always happy to offer suggestions and point you in the right direction to make the most of your time in this spectacular summer playground that is Lake Tahoe!
We’ve got breakfast covered for you with a complimentary spread of pastries, breads, fresh fruits, and cereals to get you going in the morning! Then in the evening be sure to dine with us at our award-winning restaurant The Rustic Lounge, or join us for a glass of wine in our beautiful wine bar overlooking the lake! Just remember, that we strongly encourage you to call in advance to make reservations as we have a very small dining room, and we do want to make sure you get a chance to experience the culinary talents of our chefs for yourselves.
For those of you who drive electric cars, don’t forget we have a Tesla and Universal charger stations on our property for your convenience!
