North Lake Tahoe resorts never fail to deliver intriguing summer festivities and Summer 2014 is certainly no exception.
Here is just a peek at the plethora of good times to be had on North Shore this summer.
Catch a fish eat a fish
The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort put a liquid touch on the popular farm-to-table trend. Guests can book a fishing charter on the lake and immediately enjoy their day’s catch prepared at the award-winning Lone Eagle Grille.
After the catches are cleaned, they can be packaged and taken home or prepared by Chef Hammett by simply baking it whole in a Chinese style for a crisped skin or filet grilling. Participants can savor their meal lakeside with a glass of vino and a panoramic view worth a million bucks.
Luxury by the Lake
No Lake Tahoe summer is complete without a lakeside vacation that will really put one in touch with its beauty. The Hyatt recently wrapped a multi-million dollar overhaul of their lakeside cottages. Their modern design is fresh and unique, but doesn’t derail from the quintessential Lake Tahoe experience. The cottages range in price and book up quickly, so reservations now are a must.
For the history buffs in the family, east shore’s historic Thunderbird Lodge offers public tours of the estate, including its crown jewel, a magnificent four-tiered waterfall. Arrive by shuttle, boat or kayak for the tour, which costs $39/adult & $19/child. Reservations are required.
Lake Tahoe SummerFest
The first three weekends of August, classical music lovers will be treated to the Lake Tahoe SummerFest series at Sierra Nevada College.
SummerFest features Metropolitan Opera star Matthew Polenzani and best-selling pianist Simone Dinnerstein, a new chamber music series called "Meet the Music", and Sunday concerts aimed to brining artists closer to genre enthusiasts.
Patrons travel from all over specifically for these classical music events. Each note played with the Tahoe backdrop is as sweet a treat to any ears as the last. A full concert calendar can be found online.
Don’t forget west shore!
Rent and Ride
The West Shore Café has new watercraft rentals from SWA Watersports, bolstering its fleet that includes a wooden boat, a fishing boat and a ski boat. Don’t just look at the lake, ride it.
Yoga by the Lake
Homewood will offer the Lakefront Outdoor Yoga Series on the pier of the West Shore Cafe every Wednesday and Saturday morning. Learn more from Homewood.
Enjoy one of 3 Farm-to-Peak dinners hosted by Homewood. Guests will ride a chairlift to the top of the mountain, where they will be treated to a five-course seasonal farm-to-table dinner prepared by guest chefs complete with wine or beer pairings. The Farm-to-Peak dinners will take place July 5, Aug. 9 and Aug. 30.
