“The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe was envisioned and designed in the tradition of the great national park lodges of the West that are known for blending and combining the wonder of their surroundings to create an experience that guests never forget.” said Corinna Osborne, Edgewood Tahoe general manager. “To be selected in our first year by discerning travelers for this distinctive honor validates that we are delivering on that vision for a truly remarkable guest experience. This accolade is also a testament to the dedication of our entire team of hospitality professionals. We strive for the highest level of genuine service and engagement to ensure that our guests feel at home the moment they enter the resort and can decompress lakeside from their everyday life.”
The LEED-Silver certified Lodge opened in June 2017 with 154 luxury guest rooms and suites, a luxurious spa and salon that blends the majesty of the alpine slopes and calmness of Lake Tahoe, a 200-seat bistro restaurant, a number of unparalleled indoor and outdoor meeting and special event venues and premium shopping. The Lake Tahoe resort hotel is the realization of long held plans for the 235-acre lakefront property and was a seminal project for a renaissance of the destination on the South Lake Tahoe, California and Stateline, Nevada border.
The Lodge’s first year has been filled with memorable moments. From the star-studded American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, now in its 29th year at Edgewood’s iconic golf course, to hosting the entire cast of ABC’s Modern Family as they filmed their 2017 season premiere episode at Lake Tahoe, the Lodge’s reputation for beauty accompanied by a luxuriant level of service continues to grow. Edgewood was also named the “Most Beautiful Hotel in Nevada,” by Architectural Digest and “Best Luxury Hotel in Lake Tahoe,” by USA Today 10 Best. The Lodge is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts LVX Collection, which represents renowned properties that feature the finest accommodations coupled with attentive, engaging, and exclusive personal service.
