My friend and I booked the couples escape package as it was priced better than the wrap and massages separately. The services were great and the masseuses were fantastic. There were a few small things that could have improved the customer service of the spa. The snacks in the waiting room need spoons in them. I was careful not to touch any food...more
There is a 3 mile walking path along Lakeshore Blvd in Incline Village. It's a nice place to walk and to look at some of the quite interesting houses and properties along the lake. There are a couple of beaches along the path which you can use to access the lake. I think you have to have a pass to get in during the summer season but you can walk...more
Long ago, in the late 1800's, the Tahoe Basin was completely void of ~90% of its trees. The pine trees were used to build most of Nevada and California's booming population, but mainly the Comstock Load mining operations of Virginia City.Seen from a distance as a narrow vertical scar on the mountain side directly above the Ponderosa Ranch, the log...more
Since the early 1980's, the communities along the North Shore of Lake Tahoe have come together to celebrate an annual winter festival.The North Lake Tahoe Snow Festival happens annually for 10 days in the beginning of March. It is also a main source of fund raising for local organizations and community groups.There are over 50 evens scheduled. The...more
I hate to say it, but Ponderosa Ranch was closed to the public in 2004 (open 1967 until 2004) ... Unless you know someone who knows someone, you'll have to settle for looking at it from the street or parking lot.A private family bought the property. They are maintaining it, but are not interested in tourists walking the area.more
In the summer, a wonderful beach area (with boat launch facilities) is Sand Harbor. Located a few miles south of Incline Village on HW28, in the direction of South Lake Tahoe, Sand Harbor has fine grain sand (opposed to the coarse grains everywhere else on the lake).Entrance fees do apply per car.Late in the summer, there is even a festival showing...more

Should have heeded the first warning sign when sat down and the grooved surface of the table was not clean but did not; so many other reviews on other sites had spoken highly of this place. The table wasn't clean the restrooms weren't clean (as a former restaurant worker I know this is a very bad sign) and then.... Sipping on my cold beer (good...more
Located on the lake in a huge lodge-style building, the Lone Eagle Grill has something for every appetite!On the nice days you can enjoy an unblocked view of the lake and the mountains in the distance.On the bad days, you can tuck in with a Hot Toddy and enjoy your roast near the huge fire place. Steak, seafood, veggies... you name it, they make...more
We loved the ambiance at the Lone Eagle Grille, it is located at the Hyatt hotel in Incline Village. While we waited for our table, we enjoyed the views out in the back of the property and lingered by the fire pits. I had the ahi entree which was very good with a glass of Sparkling wine. After lunch I went down to the beach to relax on the lounge...more
Yes, even in the Incline Village, Starbucks has a foothold on the locals and tourist alike. But, low and behold, there is another place that serves better coffee and food (can you say Sri Lankan Cuisine), and you don't have to worry about lines out the door. We happen to run across the Black Bear Deli & Bakery when we were picking up my birthday...more
Their motto says it all; "For Every Occasion...Quality Makes the Difference". A family run business that makes goodies the way they are supposed to be made!!! Since it was my birthday, LJ contacted Ernie's to see what was available. They came up with a huge Carrot Cake topped with sour cream icing...so delicious, so moist!!! In addition to that,...more
After one of our softball games, we went looking for a place to eat. So we hopped in the car, drove down the main street in Incline Village and found The Wildflower Café. Great location, delicious food, seating outside, but can get crowded (depending on the day). We had the opportunity to visit twice, the first time, LJ selected the 3-Stack...more
The Cafe Biltmore is a favorite for both locals and visitors alike...they serve traditional coffee shop fare at affordable prices. As you relax in the garden setting, you can choose from the famous Biltmore Breakfast, prime rib (for $6.95), juicy burgers, sandwiches stacked with freshly carved meats or specials made daily. We both had the 10 oz....more
Having breakfast at the Wildflower Cafe is like having breakfast with a great group of friends. The food is outstanding, the owners are exceptionally nice, and the staff is one of the best. Plus the prices are right on the mark. HUGE breakfast burritos w/ tons of fillings (not just scambled egg) for around seven bucks. Awesome omelettes for 5 or 6...more
While those of you who want all-night discos and clubs might find Incline a bit boring, those are not too hard to find, but you have to go to Reno or South Lake Tahoe for those.If you want a drink at a sports bar and try your luck with the possibility of dance (opens depending on the crowd), try "Rookies".there are some pool tables, but mostly...more

Running 7 days a week, from about 6:30am to 6:00pm, TART buses connect the north, west and south shores of Tahoe; from Incline Village to Kings Beach, Tahoma, Tahoe City, Truckee and all points in between.Service also starts at the Greyhound and Amtrak terminals in Truckee.They have bike racks in summer and ski racks in the winter. Sorry, but no...more
While you wont save lots of money by shopping here, you will not spend extra either. Their prices compared to other local shops are the same, but they are a no pressure sales force and they have a huge selection.
You can even pick up trail maps, weather forecasts and get transportation info for other areas. Its a local's place for info.
What to buy: Ski, snowboard, cross country gear in the winter
biking, hiking, camping, climbing gear in the summer.
What to pay: Normal retail, no more, no less. Come in the off-season or end of season for good discounts.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When I was last there (over a Labor Day weekend), the weather was warm during the day and cool/cold at night. Recommend that you bring shorts and long sleeve shirt for the morning/afternoon and sweats, long pants for the evening.
Known by many locals as the Fire Lookout (and honestly many locals don't even know it is there), the lookout is not at the top of the grandest peak, but does give a wonderful perspective of the lake, Incline Village and Kings Beach.To get there, you'll need a car (or ~35 minute walk) and go up the hill behind the Tahoe Biltmore (the casino on the...more
If you are looking for something different, then Virginia City is the place to visit. Located approximately 40 Miles from Lake Tahoe, Virginia City is an old west town with a very interesting history.The mining boom turned Virginia City into the most important settlement between Denver and San Francisco...prospectors became instant millionaires who...more
While there are a few golf courses outside of Truckee, Kings Beach, Squaw Valley and Northstar (to name a few), the two courses in Incline Village are wonderful.The views are spectacular, the greens are typically in good condition, and the air is invigorating.Neither course is easy, and both are full of hills and dog-legs and bends. But the...more
Nested in the hills above Incline Village is a great ski area. Its not as glamorized as Squaw, Northstar, Heavenly, etc. But it offers the same verticals, great conditions, great views, and a some of the best ski instruction & patrols in the Tahoe Basin.Originally it was Ski Incline, a modest hill in a great location. Then the resort nearly doubled...more
While there are too many trails to name, one of the more famous ones is the Flume Trail. Long ago, when the area was logged, there was a series of flumes that transported the flumes to the lower Carson City valley. The path of the flume is now an excellent single track for riding or hiking. Excellent technical riding as well as mind blowing views....more
