Luxe Lake Life

This summer, The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe celebrated the opening of a new waterfront lake club featuring a multilevel dining and bar facility, designed by Clare Walton, that blurs the line between indoors and out. Located in Tahoe Vista, the club has an expansive lawn, direct beach access, a private dock, and grounds to roam for the little ones; an outdoor spa and fire pit have great appeal for the adults. For snacks and meals, a rotating menu from the grill includes marinated skirt steak, grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, sausages, and veggie burgers. Seasonal salads, desserts, and morning breakfast items like fruit and granola are also available. Don’t miss the signature Mai Tahoe Tai cocktail. Shuttles frequently run between the club and the mid-mountain resort.
