Part of the Northstar ski resort, this upscale ski-in/ski-out hotel in an alpine-style wood and stone building is 7 miles from Interstate 80, and 8 miles from Kings Beach State Recreation Area on the shores of Lake Tahoe.
Rustic-chic studios come with sitting areas, fireplaces and kitchenettes, plus flat-screen TVs; some offer balconies. The 2- and 3-bedroom apartments add separate living rooms, outdoor fireplaces, washer/dryers and sofabeds.
The resort features multiple shopping and dining options, plus a gondola and a movie theater. There's also a heated outdoor pool, a kids' pool, a hot tub and a spa.
