I'd arrived in the evening, driving from Reno in minor snow squalls. The Inn looked so warm and inviting as I pulled into the parking lot that I could not wait to get to my room. The staff was very welcoming, letting me know that breakfast was served in the Gathering Room in the morning and about the policies for the spa room.
I had chosen the "Bears Den" room, and I was happy I had - it had a king-size bed and fireplace, with a bear theme throughout - there are even stone bear paw marks in the fireplace design. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the room cozy and romantic. In the morning, it was very relaxing to join other guests in the Gathering Room for breakfast. And best of all was, after a long day of skiing, to come back to have a reserved hour in the spa room (no extra charge) to use the whirlpool, sauna, and steam bath, and to enjoy the wine happy hour in the Gathering Room.
I definitely look forward to staying at the Inn at Heavenly again, when my travels are fortuitous enough to bring me back to Tahoe!
