The Lake's South Shore tries for some Vegas glam
Ski Run Boulevard, running from Heavenly Ski Resort virtually to the lake... lined with boutique lodges and Italian restaurants. The old Dream Inn... reopened last summer as the Deerfield Lodge, a 12-suite hotel with fireplaces in every room and a car port illuminated by a chandelier.  -The Wall Street Journal, October 13, 2007

"It's less than two miles from The Deerfield Lodge at Heavenly to the nearest casino, but this boutique hotel is so quiet that it feels more like 20. The private setting makes the one-year-old lodge ideal for couples, who can choose from 12 suites and rooms. Ask for room 6, an upstairs King Suite that looks out onto Heavenly's Gunbarrel ski run. The suite's simple, modern decor shows attention to detail, with leather sofas, cherry cabinets, down filled bedding, slate flooring in the bathrooms and granite countertops on the en suite coffee bar. And with two fireplaces and two full baths, the suite's 720 square feet are more than enough for two.  -Featured in Peaks Magazine, Winter 2007/2008

"What makes The Deerfield Lodge so special is the personal service it offers. I cannot ever remember leaving a hotel and hugging the staff like saying good-bye to old friends."

"The rooms are beautiful, the attention to every detail is obvious from the stone and granite, to the very comfortable bed, even the soaps, lotions, and body wash were great."

"The suite was luxurious with a warm and comfortable cabin style atmosphere. It was nice to find a luxurious hotel that welcomed us as well as our dogs. The attention to detail in the room made us feel right at home. Coat hooks and a place to store your boots in the entryway, a soft throw on the sofa, extra blankets and pillows for the bed, fireplace and TV in the living area as well as the bedroom, wonderful toiletries supplied in the bathrooms, coffee, mugs, wine glasses...nothing is forgotten."

"The owners and staff are so friendly and welcoming...they give you their personal attention. You're not just another customer to them."

"What a treat is was for my family and friends to spend the Thanksgiving holiday at this lovely and very special lodge. The beautifully adorned rooms were so comfortable and looked like something you would see in a decorating magazine. Breakfasts were always special with delicious fresh fruit, pastries, and various flavored oatmeal. Afternoon treats of cheeses and cookies were oh so welcome. We sipped our mulled cider and wine in front of the fireplace. The owners, Robin and Eric, pampered us and made us feel as if we were cherished family members. I really felt that I got the best of two types of lodging-a luxury hotel and a quaint country inn."

"I highly recommend the rest of the world discover The is rustic elegance among the pines."

"We had such a wonderful time. The location is perfect and central to anything and everything you would want to do. Shopping, restaurants, views, etc...We will definitely go back and have already recommended it to our close friends and family."

"It all started with talking to the girls that assisted us, they were wonderful, from start to finish. The lodge is our home away from home. From the owners to the staff we felt welcomed. The rooms are fabulous, comfortable, and very relaxing. Continental breakfast to happy hour was as enjoyable and very artfully done. The grounds of the lodge are picturesque, settled under the pines with roaming gardens-a wonderful relaxing time. Location was great for walking to the Lake and great restaurants. Hope you all enjoy the lodge as much as we did."

"All I can say is WOW! I absolutely loved this hotel. The people who work there, the breakfast, and everything else!"

"If your idea of 'Heavenly' is beautifully appointed, large luxurious suites (approx. 720 sq. ft.) in a naturally serene environment, nestled between the foot of the mountains, and within walking distance of Lake Tahoe, but without the hustle and bustle of downtown, then The Deerfield Lodge At Heavenly is for you. This is a top-of-the-line, privately owned and operated 'Premier Boutique Hotel' in Tahoe. Having traveled extensively domestically and internationally for both business and leisure for over 30 years, The Deerfield Lodge At Heavenly has provided one of our most enjoyable and memorable stays in our travel history."

From Our Guest Book:

"After our first stay at Deerfield we were sold! We've been back many times and consider it the only place we'll stay in Tahoe, especially given that it is pet friendly and we take our Golden Retriever everywhere we go. The rooms and grounds are beautiful and the bed is the most comfortable you'll find away from home. Robin and Eric are the owners who know the true value of customer service and everyone on staff is there for whatever you need. We love the breakfast and evening wine and could sit for hours and visit with Robin, Eric, Heather and Jocelyn. Deerfield is top-notch and you'll find that one visit isn't enough." C&K&Lady
