Looks Like You're Going to Lake Tahoe

If the Ritz-Carlton's Stunning New Lake Club Has Anything to Say About It...

By Sam Eichner ·

Because there’s no way you were already interested in taking a few days off to stay at the Ritz-Carlton in Lake Tahoe, the hotel has decided to up the luxury ante and seduce you with the Lake Club. It’s pretty much what it sounds like, but also not, given most lake clubs don’t look anywhere as spectacular as this (slideshow here).

Unfortunately or not—let’s go with “not”—you’ll have to be a guest at the resort stay here. Just consider it an added perk on top of the championship golf course access, slope-side spa and in-room fireplaces. Okay? Okay.

How you’ll make use of this place is mostly up to you. We’d recommend starting on the upper deck, a Mai Tai in hand, gazing out across the lake, taking a deep breath and allowing yourself to feel completely free and relaxed for the first time in God knows how long. But hey, that’s just us.

Of course, you can also grab some steak or salmon from the grill and head down to the 2,000-square-foot lawn creeping out from the water’s edge, listen to the waves crash onto know, that kind of thing.

And if you’re feeling up to it, take advantage of the private pier and direct beach access to charter a yacht or go water skiing. If you’re feeling less up to it, though, you can always hang back and hit the outdoor jacuzzi.

Sometimes it pays to hang back.
