The rooms was very spacious. The master bedroom had a huge bath tube spa. Also separate bathroom with shower, toilet and sink with vanity at the end. Water could have been a little warmer! The second bedroom was a room by itself with partial kitchen and bathroom. It had it's own locked door to the outside alcove that also had the washer and dryer for both units. Nice fireplace in front room. Kitchen was well appointed. There is a pool table, spa and exercise room where we stayed on level. 2. Beautiful view of skiers on lift and coming down the slope at Heavenly.
It's really hilly and would have been hard to navigate up and down the hill to the place we stayed if it was snowing and raining the whole time. It is quite a ways off South Lake Tahoe Blvd. Parking in garage below the resort has adequate room.
We ate dinner at The Happy Bear Bistro at the club center. It was very good. The bar was open. They have a regular dinner place, but open only on the weekend. The club house area is very nice.
The rooms could use a little sprucing up, but all in all it was a very comfortable stay.
Enjoyed some of the best powder skiing at Heavenly during our stay since it snowed 3 feet on our arrival day. Unfortunately, Ridge Point resort left a lot to be desired.
PROS: slopeside views, spacious condo, yup that's it.
CONS: Deep breath...resort was grossly understaffed, and wholly unprepared to handle snow storm. Found mouse droppings in our sofa bed (eeew gross), hot water dispensed from water line in fridge , furnace couldn't keep up with overnight single degree temps, sliding door to patio froze shut (no insulation in windows), we had to dig out our patio ourselves and our slope side view was blocked by 9 feet of snow, hottub was inaccessible entire week because it was buried in snow (told it would be cleared by day 2 of our 7 day stay, did not get cleared until day 6), underground garage access and stairway to shuttle were not properly cleared of snow, TV remotes did not function properly and TV would randomly turn on in middle of night, wifi horribly slow, TWO false fire alarms set off in early AM hours that took 15 minutes to silence ear piercing alarms in condo, no common area lighting, several shuttle buses would pass us before we could go to Stagecoach lift because we were last stop on route and they were always full, overall access to resort was dangerous and not well cleared.
I definitely would NOT Recommend staying at Ridge Point resort.
