"Little Slice of Truckee Heaven"

I’d had my eye on Cedar House Sport Hotel for over a year, so it was with great pleasure that my 4-year-old son and I checked in for a weekend stay on a beautiful February evening. Here's what we discovered, Cedar House is dog-friendly, family-friendly, adventure-friendly, corporate-friendly, is conveniently located near North Tahoe’s ski resorts, and would be an amazing place to rent out for a wedding!

At The Cedar House, pooches are welcomed with opened arms—arms yielding treats, dog beds, and bowls! Guests with dogs are limited to the lower floor and there's a maximum of 1 dog per standard room or 2 dogs per suite. Additional fees apply.

Cedar House boasts one of Truckee’s finest restaurants, Stella. Overnight guests enjoy a complimentary gourmet breakfast buffet in Stella’s beautiful dining room. I wolfed down fresh blueberry muffins with homemade raspberry jam, sausage, and freshly sliced Honeydew Melon. My son piled his plate high with bacon and scrambled eggs with red bell peppers. Stella is open to the public for dinner Wednesday through Sunday, and while I did not experience dinner for myself, locals say it's legendary!

For families with older kids, outdoor adventures are provided by the hotel’s in-house guide company, Tahoe Trips & Trails. At your request, in-house guides can custom design an adventure and connect your family to the stunning natural wonders of Lake Tahoe. From dog sledding and snow shoeing to hiking and adventure ski school, Tahoe Trips offers a wide selection of fun for outdoor enthusiasts.

While staying at Cedar House, my son and I experienced a Dog Sledding Adventure through Wilderness Adventure Dog Sled Tours. It was an unforgettable experience and I absolutely recommend it! My son loved the “doggie car.” From the hotel, the drive to Squaw is just 17 minutes.

Families with little ones rejoice! There’s a fabulous park with a huge playground about a 1/4th mile down the road. Other nearby kid-friendly attractions include Truckee’s Ice Rink, Truckee’s Railroad Museum, KidsZone Museum, and T Pots pottery with its wide array of kids classes.

My room featured two designer leather platform queen size beds, a refrigerator, and a shower/tub combination. Since my preschooler is scared of showers, I was thrilled to have a room with a bathtub! Instead of a traditional closet, my room featured a Pogo closet—a cross between a coat rack and a book tree. In conjunction with the 4 coat hooks on the wall, the space saving Pogo worked great.  

Kids of all ages will enjoy the hotel’s outdoor hot tub, free parking and Wi-Fi, Keurig coffeemakers, radio with iPod dock, LCD televisions, and luxurious beds. One thing to note, the hotel does not provide a top sheet for its beds. Instead, guests recieve individual down comforters. The beds are VERY comfortable. Maximum occupancy for all rooms is 4 people total and is strictly enforced.

Cedar House Sport Hotel lived up to my expectations and then some. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and would be thrilled to stay here again. As a single mom with a young son, the hotel offered me a bit of the best of everything I could want or need—gorgeous room, free parking, delicious free breakfast, a fun hot tub set in the snow which we enjoyed all to ourselves for two nights in a row, close proximity to Downtown Truckee’s eateries and activities, a dreamy nearby playground, nearby gas stations and convenience stores, and an easy drive to Resort at Squaw Creek and the Village at Squaw.

Disclosure: My family received complimentary lodging to facilitate this review. I was not asked to express any particular opinion. My opinions are my own.
