"Winter Fun in Squaw Valley "

My family spent a beautiful snowy weekend at Resort at Squaw Creek in 2012. Though we do not ski, the resort offers plenty of fun activities to keep families like mine busy and happy. Family friendly activities include an outdoor ice skating pavilion, sledding, dog sled tours, horse drawn sleigh rides, and the nearby Village at Squaw.

Tahoe experienced a massive snowstorm on the weekend I visited, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to take advantage of many of those activities. I did however, enjoy many great meals at the resort’s two signature restaurants; took the kids sledding (kinda of); and capitalized on every opportunity to warm my cold bones by the grand fireplace in the large, comfy lobby.


The hotel lobby wasn't physically connected to the tower that housed our guest room. Every time we left our room, even if it was just to grab a bite to eat from the onsite restaurant, we’d have to don our snow gear for the walk to the main building. Since we were forced to be outside in full snow attire, the kids and I enjoyed several spontaneous play sessions in the snow. Looking back at it now, it was many of those moments that made our trip.  


Resort at Squaw Creek is stress free and self-contained. While onsite, I bought new snow boots from Squaw Creek Sports (since the cheap pair I brought from home weren’t cutting it), small toys from Little Dumplings; a boutique toy store located just outside our hotel tower, and a bottle of wine from the deli.


We stayed in a standard room with two beds. It was clean and the TV offered every comfort of home. The view from my room was stunning. I snapped a picture of it from my cel phone and posted it to Facebook, if that tells you anything.


During a brief break in the weather, my family checked out some sleds.The groomed sledding hill is adjacent to Squaw Creek's ski lift, but due to the heavy snow, we weren't able to use it. Instead, I popped the kids on a sled and schlepped them around the property as best I could. I guess you could say I was a one man dog sled team.


Please see my review for Six Peaks Grille.

Please see my review for Sandy’s Pub.

Cascades, located downstairs from Six Peaks Grille, is not a restaurant advertised on the resort's website. It features a breakfast buffet and evening seafood buffet. At the breakfast buffet, expect a wide variety of healthy and hearty food in a family friendly, casual atmosphere. My son ate a ton of bacon and cereal. I opted for an egg white omelet from the omelet bar. Cascades offers surreal views of the valley.

Disclosure: I received complimentary lodging and sledding. My review reflects my honest opinions and was not influenced by the Resort or its affiliates.

"Well Priced Tahoe Luxury"

The Resort at Squaw Creek welcomes families to Lake Tahoe for year round fun.  Summer is my favorite season in Tahoe, and Squaw Creek is well priced and family friendly base from which to explore all that summer offers.  
Our 1 bedroom  Fireplace Suite afforded plenty of room for a family of three or 4, with a cozy king size bedroom, granite kitchenette with dining table (seats 4) and separate small living room with gas fireplace and queen sized sleeper sofa.   We were impressed that the kitchenettes are so well equipped!  Dishes and silverware, dish soap and sponges and even an apartment sized Fisher and Paykal  dishwasher complete the tidy kitchen. Granite bathrooms are large and luxurious, with deep soaking tubs, separate showers, and fine bath products.  

For larger families, some of the Fireplace Suites can be combined with a second king or queen-queen bedroom.  
Deluxe Fireplace Suites can accommodate a rollaway cot as well, and can sleep up to 5 people.  Summer rack rates for Deluxe Queen rooms start at about $205.  

My daughter’s favorite part of our stay at the Resort was undoubtedly the pool and waterslide!  Although the water was too cool for me to enjoy when we visited in June, my daughter did not seem to mind.  There were plenty of deck chairs in the pool area and it did not feel overly crowded even on a busy summer weekend.  

The Resort is also home to Matt Heron Fly-fishing, and we were lucky enough to take part in his excellent 3 hour Creek Creatures class, in which we learned to tie flies and cast!  Matt is also an avid biologist, and taught us about the different “creatures” that are such yummy treats for fish.  I highly recommend taking a class from Matt, even if you don’t think fly fishing is your thing.  You will be surprised!   My daughter and I had a blast.  She caught a fish on her very first cast!  
The resort has an excellent and inexpensive on-site bike rental kiosk that offers both mountain and touring bikes for kids and adults (my daughter is about 48 inches tall, and could fit the smallest bike).  The well-maintained bike path meanders along the glorious Truckee river-perfect for kids who are just learning to ride.  

For kids who prefer to ride 4 legged mounts, the nearby Alpine Stables has both trail rides for kids ages 5 and up and parent-led pony rides for younger kids.  We though the pony ride was worth the $10, because kids can ride around the forest trail several times.  

In addition to Squaw Creek’s own restaurants, which we didn’t have a chance to visit, families have plenty of options on the mountain at Squaw (5 minutes from the hotel).  

We enjoyed a delicious sushi lunch at the uber hip Mamasake, a cal-asian fusion restaurant in Squaw Village.  While pricy (California rolls start at $8.  Miso soup is $4), I though the unique dishes and fun atmosphere were well worth the price.  

Pizza Co is another great choice for kids.  It is the sister restaurant to Northstar’s Rubicon Pizza, and offers both gourmet pizzas and decent salads.  It’s not exactly budget dining, but the tasty pizzas are sure to be crowd pleasers.

My favorite Squaw restaurant is undoubtedly Plumpjack Café however, which while spendy, is amazing.  As an avowed foodie who tries to instill my children with gourmet sensibilities, I was pleased to see that chicken nuggets and hot dogs were mercifully absent from PlumpJack’s kids menu.   Add to that an amazing wine list and excellent food for the adults, and you have a mountain restaurant fit for a chow-hound.  

Disclosure:  While I received complimentary lodging and tickets to Matt Heron’s Creek Creatures class, my review reflects my honest opinions and was not influenced by the Resort or its affiliates.
