Editor’s Review of Resort at Squaw Creek

The Resort at Squaw Creek, with 405 luxury hotel rooms, sits five miles from Lake Tahoe, at the very base of world-famous Squaw Valley Mountain. This casual but chic resort verges on becoming my all-time favorite north shore stay. If I had to rate Squaw Creek on a scale from one to 10, I'd give it a perfect 11.

To begin, the resort's lobby is extremely impressive, boasting soaring floor-to-ceiling windows for a breathtaking view of Squaw Mountain. My kids played on the lobby chess boards for hours while I kicked back in front of the roaring fire inside the giant stone fireplace. Normally, I'm not one to hang out in a hotel lobby, but this one was obviously created for guest relaxation, rather than to serve as a thoroughfare for
... more guests checking in and out.

I was pleasantly surprised that Squaw Creek offers many of the same amenities you'd expect to find in a fine resort, without having an exhausting "sprawl" feeling. Whoever designed Squaw Creek did a superlative job in creating a multi-layered resort with a large grouping of pools, hot tubs, a spa, a salon, restaurants, boutiques and shops, all snuggled together. There's no cramped feeling at all. less

Speaking of guest rooms, these have their own kitchens. I wouldn't go so far as to call them "fully equipped" kitchens, but they're darn functional and are a far cry from being kitchenettes. We had a small stove, a pull-out drawer dishwasher, a microwave, a toaster, a refrigerator, a coffee maker and all of the pots, pans and essentials. We loved it.

The newly remodeled rooms are stunning, have a lodge feel and are immaculately clean. The bathrooms are roomy, and the mountain views are heartbreakingly beautiful.
