Everyone is always talking about their winter vacations to South Lake Tahoe, but why not explore outside the basin this year and discover everything Carson Valley Inn has to offer. Carson Valley Inn boasts incredible panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with easy access to the slopes in South Lake Tahoe. With extensive renovations in 2010, the newly revamped Carson Valley Inn is not only in the perfect location (at the foothills of majestic mountains), but has the charm and sophistication that we love.

The Inn

Surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Carson Valley Inn offers guests unbelievable views from the hotel room. Located 20 minutes east of Lake Tahoe, this is the perfect option for visitors looking for a gem outside of the basin.

Accommodations include three options: the hotel, the Motor Lodge, and the Carson Valley RV Resort.

  • Hotel: The hotel at Carson Valley Inn includes newly remodeled rooms and incredible views. Handicapped accessible rooms are available.
  • Motor Lodge: Just a quick hop across the street the Motor Lodge features queen and king-size beds and two mini suites. Amenities include a flat screen TV, free internet, and all toiletry necessities.
  • RV Resort: Make it a mobile vacation and bring the RV to Carson Valley Inn. Fifty-nine full-hookup sites include electric, water, sewer and cable TV.

The Carson Valley Casino

Extensive renovations at the casino at Carson Valley Inn have polished the play area. The casino now boasts cleaner casino air, beautiful interior design (including new carpeting), and the latest technology in slots. HDTVs surround the pit table games, so no need to worry about whether the SF Giants or 49ers are winning or not. Enjoy the Carson Valley Casino this winter vacation.
