Mr. Luxury Ski
Coachman Hotel, South Lake Tahoe
With its first summer under its belt, the new Coachman Hotel enters its first snow season as the hip new spot for a Lake Tahoe ski escape. Set in the combined shells of a 1960s motel and an old vacation rental, Coachman has 42 guest rooms, including the sleek three-bedroom fireplace suite carved out of the original motel lobby, and a honeymoon suite complete with heart-shaped hot tub. There’s a steamy outdoor hot tub with fire pits, and the garage of the old vacation rental has been transformed into a wood-paneled communal lounge that starts the day as a Sumptown coffee shop and morphs into a cozy après-ski bar in the evening. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the Heavenly Gondola and Stateline’s flashy casinos, putting all of South Lake’s charms within striking distance.
