Our monthly hot list of the West’s best upcoming events, latest openings, must-have items, and more
The word is out: South Lake Tahoe is in the midst of a bona-fide tourism boom, with a spate of new hotels, restaurants, and attractions. On our list: the Coachman Hotel, a revamp of a 1960s motor lodge that puts a just-hip-enough spin on the alpine aesthetic. Located near the base of Heavenly Mountain, the 42-room retreat checks all the right boxes—Frette linens, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Malin + Goetz bath products—while adding several smart extras. Low-slung seating by J. Pickens creates an intimate conversation area overlooking the outdoor firepits. A three-bedroom suite that sleeps 11 features a built-in sectional that doubles as desk or eating space. The chic corn-hole boards are crafted out of reclaimed wood from the renovation. And did we mention the custom-poured hot tub is open year-round?
