Skiing in Lake Tahoe

Overview

Quote:
Skiing in Heavenly, the gondola, Squaw Valley, the spa at the Marriott (Bare Essentials). I recommend the 2 hour pampering package. The drive around the lake was beautiful. The Chart House for dinner was excellent. Quick Tips: I recommend renting a car, renting ski equipment at the Powder House across from the Village (can use discount coupon), I recommend TAPS Italian restaurant with huge salad bar and coupon for free appetizer. All coupons and dining recommendations are in the lobby or at the front desk. Best Way To Get Around: Car, shuttles, taxi, some walking in village.

Chart House

Restaurant

Quote:
We were familiar with the Chart House restaurants from dining in Newport Beach, Rancho Mirage, Hawaii, and Mammoth Lakes. We made the reservation that day on the chair lift at Heavenly. We arrived 15 minutes ahead of reservation, and they seated us immediately at a nice 6 top near the wood burning fireplace that was decorated with holiday decor. We started with a champagne toast of "White Star" and the "Lobster Spring Rolls", followed with a recommended bottle of the Fransciscan Pinot Noir. Specials were described and main courses were recommended down the smallest details.

On the North Shore in Lake Tahoe, sits the Log Cabin Restaurant, a small family owned log cabin that is very warm and cozy. They offer breakfast and lunch with a variety of selections. My husband and I enjoyed the "Cajun Shrimp Eggs Benedict" which was in the world famous Bon Appetit Magazine-now we know why. Delicious!

Timber House Restaurant

Restaurant | "Timber House at Lakeside Casino"

Quote:
The Lakeside Inn Hotel and Casino offers friendly small time service. The Timber House restaurant offers a daily prime rib with mash potatoes, vegetables, and your choice of soup or salad for $8.99. It was excellent. The warm bread came before the meal that was very fresh as well. The second night we tried the cheeseburger and the chicken fried steak. Good food for good value.

New York Pizza

Restaurant

We ordered in pizza from NY Pizza and I do not recommend it. The "Meat Lovers" pizza was horrible and the "Alfredo Pizza" was even worse.

The Heavenly Village offers the Wolfgang Puck Express restaurant. A small cafe where we ate the barbeque chicken sandwich, and the warm chipotle chicken sandwich. Both sandwiches were dry and overpriced. No sides and no coffee. We arrived at 10:55 and lunch starts at 11:00. They did not have lunch ready until 11:20.
