My daughter and I just spent a week in beautiful Heavenly, Lake Tahoe, and I am SO glad we stayed at Heavenly Valley Lodge! What an experience! My daughter, 11, and I couldn't have had a better holiday! We were treated as family, in fact, after a week staying at Linda's and Johan's lovely B&B, we felt like we had known them forever, and that we had visited old friends in Lake Tahoe.
You will never find a place like this. It is the warmest, friendliest, most welcoming accommodation I have ever stayed at, and that says a lot coming from an airline employee, who has travelled the world, and stayed at numerous hotels worldwide.
Linda and Johan will treat you as they have known you for years, you will feel so welcomed, it is actually hard to leave the lodge during the day, because it is so nice & relaxing, and you really feel so comfortable and at home!
The breakfast is really great, and it is lovely to start the day up in the main lodge, relaxing in front of the fire with a good cup of coffee,tea or cocoa.
In the late afternoon, you may meet other guests, as well as the innkeepers, Linda & Johan, for a glass of wine, soda, tea, coffee or hot chocolate, up in the main lodge. We really looked forward for this moment of the day, as it was so nice and interesting to meet other travellers from all over the world, hear stories, play some board games, or just relax in front of the big fire.
There are 12 rooms at HVL, all the rooms are very personal and different, they are so cosy and lovely, with a mountain lodge feeling to them. Every room has a fireplace, and we loved returning to our room in the evenings, reading our books in front of the fire.
Each room also have a nice kitchenette, with everything you may need;
a microwave, a good size fridge, coffee maker, a toaster, cutlery, plates, glasses and cups.
There are tea bags and coffee supplied every day.
Our room was always immaculate. When we returned after a day of skiing, it was lovely to see delightful cookies on a plate for us.
The guests at HVL were both couples, single travellers, and families alike. We've made some great friends during this week, wonderful people that we most definite will meet again.
My daughter also made several friends her own age.
The location of HVL, on Ski Run Blvd., is really convenient. It is walking distance to several good restaurants, a supermarket, a numerous of ski rental places & shops, and only about 10 mins walk to beautiful Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Queen, a paddle steamer from the 1900s which offers a traditional way to cruise the lake as tourists have done for more than 100 years, is waiting for you, only a 10 minute walk from Heavenly Valley Lodge. Not to be missed! A most wonderful 2 hours spent on the lake.
During the winter season, there is a free ski shuttle which stops right outside the B&B. Super easy, and you don't have to worry about parking your car up at the ski resort, the bus literally brings you from door to door! The bus also do shuttles in to Heavenly Village, about a 5 mins drive.
I can't wait to return to beautiful Lake Tahoe. Next time I would really like to experience this magical place during summer, apparently it is even more beautiful then!
And I look so much forward to see my friends, at the Heavenly Valley Lodge.
It is a diamond this place, thanks to the most wonderful couple, Linda & Johan :)
