The Landing Resort and Spa
South Lake Tahoe, California
A quick stroll from North America’s largest alpine lake (at an elevation of over 1,800 metres), this resort has 77 rustic rooms, each with a fireplace and heated bathroom floors.
What we loved Getting pampered at the Landing Spa with the Hydrating Emerald Bay Facial, complete with a citrus scrub and a face mask made of gemstone crystals.
If you only have one night For lake and mountain views, curl up in a blanket by the outdoor firepit at Jimmy’s Restaurant with a glass of 2010 Marcassin Pinot Noir from Sonoma County, a sommelier favourite.
Bonus Hop on the hotel’s free shuttle service to Heavenly Mountain Gondola for a day on the slopes.855-700-5263, thelandingtahoe.com
