To Do: Tahoe for the Holidays

Rob and I are planning a bit of a snowy retreat for the week after Christmas. We have the time off and are itching to cross country ski. In between all the deluxe ski resorts and weird casinos, Lake Tahoe has a few adorable old log cottages for rent.

A hot tub, a tiny fireplace and some warm blankets are what I have in mind. So far, my best lead is a former lumber camp converted to cottages in the 1920's.

Any recommendations?

this may not be your style but we stayed at this place last spring and it was cheap and AWESOME.

Cheap, clean, fantastic late 80's chic (mauve carpets and lots of brass & glass), and our room had a murphy bed! Total old-style family resort, great staff, and perfect location - right across from the Heavenly lift.

Have fun!
