My wife and I stayed here while attending a family wedding at Incline Village (approximately 25 minutes away). This hotel is incredible. I relied heavily on the hotel concierge prior to our arrival. Bernie arranged our rides to and from the hotel, dinner reservations and dry cleaning. Valet service was friendly and fast ($35/day for parking). Room was beautiful. Nice size room with a fireplace. Bathroom had plush towels and well stocked toiletries. Great shower and huge soaking tub. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Pool bar was a great spot to relax. Staff (Adam, Brian and Sara) was very friendly and fun to sit and talk to. Amazing firepits dot the grounds, with lots of folks making smores each night. Pool is a very nice size with plenty of chairs for sitting and sunbathing.
Be aware there is a $25/day resort fee.
Again, this place is incredible. Great place for a romantic getaway or just a getaway from the rat race.
I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
One more tip - if you need a car service for the weekend, I recommend Trevor (I believe the company name was Independence Taxi. He has a nice size Toyota SUV) I left my cell in the car and Trevor went out of his was to get it back to me ASAP. His number is 530-210-6041. We used him all weekend and he was great.
