Do nothing days in Tahoe Vista

Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort

Wake up to the Sunrise over the snowy mountains & the heavenly Green Ocean right from your bed…

Private beach, Sun Loungers w/o Umbrella, Fire-pit w/o loungers, Hammock, Kayaks, Paddleboard, Barbecue, Kitchen, Private Picnic Tables (per Room), Picnic Benches (per Room), Bath Tub, Faux Furs.. 
They had it all & for no extra cost…

My Fav Time for this trip: Mid April! When you can still see the snow on the mountains, but it’s sunny & warm..

Always drive clockwise around the lake!! It’s easy to pull over at vistas..

View from my bed & deck… Oh Ya.. My room had a deck with a picnic table..
Tons of space in the beach..

How to Get There.. Donner Pass..

While coming from Folsom or Sacramento… Drive through Donner Pass instead of Highway 80.. by Taking exit 168 toward Rainbow Rd & turn left to Donner Pass and stay on it to drive through the sky resorts, Donner Summit Bridge & finally the Donner Lake..

Sit on the Deck..!

How to Get There.. HWY 431..

While driving from Reno to North or South Lake Tahoe, you can take Scenic Highway 431.. 
It only takes 15 minutes more than the other 2 routes..
Views of Mt Rose, Mt Houghton & Lake Tahoe are amazing from Highway 431..
