Tahoe Honeymoon

Overview

Quote:
The off season began the day we arrived in Lake Tahoe. We loved it! My most memorable thing to do was the Gondola Ride at Heavenly. It takes you up to an observation deck where you can see the entire lake. The hiking and nature is absolutly amazing. The weather was the best. Not hot, not cold, just great for taking a walk. The dinner and dance cruise at Zypher cove was awesome.Quick Tips: The concierge has numerous discounts for restaurants, shops, activities, and for the more adventurous discounts at the only adult store in Lake Tahoe. You can get free show tickets and even tickets to the dinner and dancing cruise by taking the timeshare sales tour at the Embassy Resorts....Read More

Tahoe Seasons Resort

Hotel | "Tahoe Seasons"

The Tahoe Seasons is a great resort. The vast majority of units are 1 bedroom. They have a living room with TV/VCR. Between the living room and the bedroom is a huge in room hot tub.

The Christiania Inn has to be the most romantic restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Amazing menu, fireside dining, and great service.

Bananas Flambé and Cherries Jubile, which were prepared tableside, are great.

Check out their website here.

The Gondola's were awesome. You can see the entire lake from the observation deck. When we went it was only open Friday - Sunday. Take lunch with you; there are pinic tables and chairs as well as trash cans. It is beautiful and romantic.

That's right, the Ponderosa Ranch where they filmed Bonaza. It is located about 25 minutes from Lake Tahoe in Incline Village, NV. There is a petting zoo for kids, a lot of Old West antiques, and old cars. The tavern was really cool with the swinging doors and a big bar. They do an Old West show and tour of the house and sets as well.
