Families visiting the Lake Tahoe area have a wide range of choices for accommodations. From luxury resorts with full spas and kid's programs to private condominiums and small, local hotels. Each of them are close to the area's special amenities like skiing, hiking, biking, beach fun and exploring.
If you are looking for a luxury vacation, the Ritz-Carlton (located at the Northstar resort) has a wonderful heated pool that overlooks the ski runs at mid-mountain. The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe on the North Shore has their world-renowned Camp Hyatt for the children of guests. At the Tahoe Camp Hyatt, children learn about the local area as well as the natural world. Other resorts include Northstar's Village accommodations and the condos and townhouses at Kirkwood.
If the kids can't get enough of swimming, take them to the warm, year-round pool at David Walley's 1864 Resort where the rental condos are about 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe and just steps away from the local hot springs. For some camping fun without the dirt, head to Basecamp Hotel where you can sleep under a canvas tent without leaving your room.
The Zephyr Cove Resort on the East Shore has some of the best beaches in the area as well as access to BBQs, volleyball, kayaking and the M.S. Dixie II paddlewheel boat.
