Stretching from its capital, former Gold Rush town Auburn, to the shores of Lake Tahoe, Placer County combines history with natural wonder. Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, famed for both its crystal-clear, sky-blue waters and the mountain panorama that surrounds it, and is a major hub for winter sports with cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, and snowmobiling available. The nearby Granite Chief and Desolation Wilderness areas offer hiking and mountain scenery with Bald Eagles being a regular feature among the pines. Characterful Auburn offers Victorian buildings, microbreweries, and museums for the less active visitor. Our glamping accommodations range from woodland cabins to elegant Victorian cottages and rustic trailers with lakeside views. Enjoying nature doesn’t mean forgoing comfort or modern facilities, with Wi-Fi, heating, and fitted kitchens being the norm and many also including their own hot tubs for a relaxing soak after a day’s exploration.
