Tahoe's New Coachman Hotel Is a Stylish & Affordable Summer Retreat

By

South Lake Tahoe's newest boutique hotel has everything a West Coast hipster could want when spending a weekend in the mountains.


Coachman was originally built in 1960 to accomodate the influx of tourists headed to the Tahoe Olympic Games before being reimagined as a hipster paradise earlier this spring. While you won't get the spa-style amenities associated with the Ritz-Carlton in Truckee, or the massive space from an Airbnb vacation house, Coachman provides style and practicality at a surprisingly affordable rate.

Handcrafted beds and fine linens will make the 42 rooms feel quite cozy in the winter, when South Lake Tahoe becomes less about the lake and more about the slopes at Heavenly Mountain, just a two-minute walk away. But for now, in the summer, guests lounge at the pool when they're not kayaking or paddling at the lake (another two-minute walk away), or on the mountain doing a vigorous hike.

In the common areas, guests can relax with a glass of wine and a good book on fur-clad chairs and coaches or lounge around the outdoor fire pits with a Pendleton blanket and a s'mores kit. At Coachman, mingling is encouraged. There are many of the hipster tribe you've yet to meet, after all. // 4100 Pine Blvd. (South Lake Tahoe), coachmantahoe.com
