During a week-long stay at Lake Tahoe we happened to explore the historic Camp Richardson resort after having dined at its lakeside restaurant. We looked at two cabins and inquired about whether one of them would be available after our week was up. We stayed in the Cadillac cabin for two days -- there was a Winter special: two days for the price of one. The view of the lake was wonderful. There were three beds, and each had its own level of firmness. As a person who needs a firm bed, I was very happy to have a regular bed to sleep in instead of camping out on the floor. The cabin was very clean and had a full kitchen and two small bathrooms. We found the whole place charming and hope to return.
