The Seasons Are Changing: Tahoe Time

Upper Truckee River Tahoe

The willows are just starting to turn and a few windows of warm weather are revolving in and out. Some days wading the Upper Truckee is still within reach while others bring a nip to the air.  Tip:  be prepared for both and bring your cold weather gear.

Hiking and biking couldn’t be better. The summer crowds are gone and bike path lanes are pretty clear all the way to Kiva Beach.  Hiking trails, superb. Willows turning gold.


Our cabin is super clean and ready for your stay. The decks were just painted and the deck chairs are all lined up for cocktails.  So much better than a motel and the same price…. just more room and it’s way more peaceful.  Here’s how to reserve your stay:

The Tahoe Scene June 30

TahoeSouthBobbing boats against a casino backdrop.  Not quite Monte Carlo but expand on it with your imagination.  The air is purer here and the action wild and free. Hiking boots and sandals the norm.
