South Lake Tahoe ski and snowboarders have been patiently awaiting snow this season... and better late than never!

That weekend just so happens to be available at our beautiful June Meadows Chalet, conveniently located next to Heavenly Resort. Book your stay to enjoy the end of the season before its gone!

Festival Seasons at the Old Polo Estate


Festival season is upon us. In less than one month the Empire Polo Grounds will be hosting the Coachella Music Festival, with only a quick recovery before Stagecoach comes rolling in. Inside the gates thousands of people will gladly endure the warm weather and long hours to see their favorite bands and artists perform on stage.

Just a mile down the road, the Old Polo Estate will offer a quiet oasis. Take a dip in the pool, make a drink at the bar, rest (maybe) in the beautifully decorated home. With a putting green, volleyball court, outdoor bar and kitchen, pool and spa, the Old Polo Estate is fully equipped for entertaining or just escaping.

Hidden Gems of South Lake Tahoe


Lake Tahoe has so much to offer, but some of the best places aren't well known to many. Here we will reveal a few of South Lake Tahoe's hidden gems.

Lira's Market Deli: When you are coming down the grade on Highway 50 entering Tahoe, the first town you will come across is little Meyers. On the right hand side of the main road is Lira's Market. Inside you will find a simple looking deli, but let me tell you, there's nothing simple about their sandwiches. The Tri-Tip sandwich is packed with meat and flavor, and all their specialties are to die for. The best part? No wait! This little hidden spot is perfect for grabbing a bite on your way to or from the lake. 

Glen Alpine Creek and Falls: A beautiful view with no hike. The Glen Alpine Creek and Falls is just past Fallen Leaf Lake on the way to the Glen Alpine trailhead. Park your car and get up close and personal with the falls. If you're feeling adventurous, hike up the creek a bit for some even more secluded, and beautiful spots. 

Verdes: If you're looking for an amazing burrito, Verde's always hits the spot. Originally in little Meyers, it's new location is right near the Y in South Lake Tahoe.

Twin Peaks and the Sand Pit: Many people don't realize that there is actually a dirt bike track and four wheeling spot right at the outskirts of town. The Sand Pit offers a great track and jumps for dirt bike enthusiasts, and the trails lead to some amazing views. 

Desolation Wilderness: If you're really wanting to escape the crowds and get in touch with the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe, hike into Desolation Wilderness! I mean, if that name doesn't say it then I don't know what does. Make sure you do your research for this one. 


A Perfect Desert Weekend


Winter blues got you down? Escape to the desert for some vitamin D and vitamin me! The Old Polo Estate happens to be open this weekend- and Coachella Valley is calling for sunny and 80 degree weather. Lay out by the pool, play some volleyball or golf, grill some kabobs on the 'que or enjoy a margarita at the outdoor bar! Who says you can't enjoy summer in February?
