Anniversary Trip to South Lake Tahoe

Whew, this was already a couple weeks ago, but I wanted to share about our little mini trip to South Lake Tahoe for our 4 year wedding anniversary.  We stayed at the Fireside Lodge, and it was absolutely adorable.  

The place is amazing - the service is personable, and they have the best little lodge.  It's on the honors system.  They let you borrow any movies from their library, you can get your own drinks from their bar, and they have free wine and cheese every night, and s'mores by their cute fire pit every night.  They have a good complimentary breakfast and free snacks through out the day.  They also have bikes and kayaks you can use for free.  It's within walking distance to The Beacon and a few other little restaurants and bars - also the actual lake!  We had the best time and met the sweetest family from Switzerland during our stay.  I strongly recommend staying there if you are ever in South Lake. :)

We had a great time.  We went to the Beacon, visited the Lake (it was a little smokey from the Yosemite Fire), had beers at a cute little Irish Pub near the Lodge, went to Heavenly Village, and just spent time at the Lodge relaxing with the new friends we met there.

They have a dog (Kona) who is really spoiled and just hangs with all the guests.  He is so cute!
 Hanging by the fire about to make s'mores!
Smokey (but still pretty) Lake Tahoe.

We are so lucky to live just a short drive away from this beautiful place!

What a gorgeous place! It is nice to know that there are resorts like this that treat their guests like family. If I ever make it across the country, I will surely keep it in mind!
