Out’n ‘About In Lake Tahoe

Last weekend, R & I took a few days off for some R&R in South Lake Tahoe. Even though it’s only a little more than 3hrs by car, we definitely felt like we traveled thousands of miles, to a different country. Surrounded by majestic mountains and the most gorgeous pine trees for the last third of the drive, we knew we were in store for something really special…

!

As soon as we arrived to the beautiful Coachman Hotel, which felt like an upscale hipster camp ground, we were welcomed by the friendliest staff you’ll ever meet. The lovely Kathleen, GM of the hotel, made sure we know the best spots in town so we could make the best of our short stay. All the wood and the Scandinavian design vibes made me imagine just how amazing it would be to spend a couple of days here during winter, surrounded by snow… I guess I’ll have to comeback and see for myself!IMG_0809Even though it was hard to leave our comfortable bed, we freshened up quickly and hurried to explore the area.DSC05215

As recommended by the lovely staff of the Hotel, we drove to Inspiration Point Vista, where we felt small… Really, really small…DSC05322

Standing on the edge of the cliff, overlooking Emerald bay and the lake, we were absolutely breathless. The mountain peaks covered in snow as countless pines rushed down to the beach, looked like a picture taken right out of your imagination. The lake was the deepest shade of blue I’ve ever seen. It really felt like we’re the only two people in the world, with so much land to explore!

Although the view was epic from there, we rushed back to the lake to catch the sunset by the water. To our surprise the sun didn’t set until a little after 8, which gave us the excuse to dip our feet in the chilly water and snap some photos in the golden light!

You’ve never seen sunsets quite as beautiful as this. The deep golden light shimmering on the lake starts gradually changing it’s colors, until it becomes a red so intense that the sky feels like it’s alight in flames… It’s without a doubt completely breathtaking.

To our great luck, a cafe right on the beach was having it’s soft opening, so we popped in for some refreshing cocktails as we caught the last glimpses of light disappear over the horizon. After a few drinks and a some delicious pesto burgers, it started to get colder near the water which was our queue to head back to our hotel.

One of my favorite aspects about the Coachman Hotel is the camp fire style area, situated in front of the bar/reception area. Lit just after sunset, it makes a great place for a late night chit-chat around the flames.

All wrapped up in blankets, sipping on hot tea, we made our plans for the next day… But that’s another adventure that has to wait for now…

If you’re planing a trip to Tahoe, I highly recommend staying at the trendy Coachman Hotel, which you can book here.

XoXo,

Tamara

Thank you Coachman Hotel for sponsoring our stay!

I love the outfit you wore, too, the skirt is so cute and I love the way it looks paired with that hat! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the most amazing weekend ahead!

    Your trip to Tahoe sounds amazing, and your photos are beautiful! I need to make a trip out west sometime soon. I always imaged ski season would be the time to go, but this makes me want to visit in the summer too!

    This place looks amazing, Lake Tahoe must be great to visit – I would love to! The hotel looks good to, but you were right to just freshen up and leave to explore the area! I liked your Asos dress very much, it is just right for a sunny day, fresh and feminine! This seems to be a very romantic place, very good to spend with a special person! Hope you have a great weekend!

    What a cute little place! My husband and I visited southern Lake Tahoe area in February, and I really wish we could visit in the summer! We went skiing and stayed at a place near the slopes, but I totally would love to stay in a cute place like this next time. I love that fire pit and setting!
