The Destination
Lake Tahoe—the largest alpine lake in North America and the second-deepest lake in the country—is simply the centerpiece of the region, a sparkling lapis lazuli on California's pinkie ring. Surrounding it is the highest concentration of ski areas on the continent, a gamer's paradise just over the border in Nevada, and a number of historical sites steeped in Gold Rush lore. And those are just a few of the gems. Add to that a handful of excellent restaurants, a few family-owned wineries, and the kind of country hospitality you won't find in the city, and it's no wonder Tahoe is the state's premier hub for recreation.

The Digs
One of the newest additions to Lake Tahoe's South Shore—and the greenest hotel in the area—968 Park Hotel sits right across the street from the gondola at Heavenly. On-site, you'll find a heated outdoor pool as well as a hot tub, while the inside is done up in eco-modern fashion, with Douglas fir and recycled metals creating a look that's more than just stylish—it helped the property to become LEED compliant and earn a four Eco-Leaf rating from iStayGreen. Each of the 58 rustic-meets-modern rooms come complete with biodegradable bath amenities, an EnergyStar LCD TV, free Wi-Fi, and organic linens. While designed to reduce your carbon footprint, all the usual hotel amenities are still intact.

The Diversions
Downstairs at the 968 Spa, massage therapists use natural, vegan, and organic lotions and oils to work out kinks and relax muscles. Once you're loose and limber, head for Himmel Haus, South Lake's premier spot for hearty German fare, excellent craft beer, and live entertainment. At some point during your stay, pop into Picchetti Winery. Established in 1896, it's one of the oldest wineries in California and offers flights for $10 apiece.

  • "Everything is eco-modern and fits in seamlessly with its Tahoe surroundings (lots of wood décor constructed from all-natural materials). Service is stellar, and you're presented with a complimentary beer or glass of wine upon arrival."

    -- Frommer's
