Inn at Nakoma

Mountain meets modern in an alpine wonderland

Staying at the Inn at Nakoma is an escape from the traffic and crowds you’ll find in Lake Tahoe. Here, you’ll discover a beautiful, modern resort surrounded by mountains and forests. While the resort’s signature amenity is the unspoiled natural setting, you’ll also find thoughtfully designed details that amplify your experience of Mother Nature. With picture-postcard views from every tee, Nakoma’s 18-hole championship course, the Dragon, never disappoints. Golfing, hiking, biking, skiing —whatever beckons you —you’ll find that Nakoma is the ultimate retreat.

Find serenity in the Lost Sierra

What it's like

Roll down the windows and soak in the sights as you approach the property. Nakoma sits in the Sierra Nevada range, surrounded by 8,500-foot peaks and turquoise glacially-carved lakes. The building is a masterpiece: The Clubhouse was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and the rest of this serene retreat is inspired by his legacy. As you step inside the lobby, you’ll be struck by soaring floor-to-ceiling windows, the crackling of the fireplace, the rich leather furniture, and the warm welcome from the hotel staff. In each of the 42 spacious guest rooms, you’ll enjoy the view of either the fairway or the forest. And while your room has everything you need for a idyllic stay, this destination is designed to draw you outside and into nature.  

Independent spirit

Timeless hospitality, modern amenities & mountain air.

Small touches

At the center of the resort, Altitude Recreation Center is home to a fitness room, children’s center, climbing wall, a screening room, lap pool, hot tubs and conference room, all under high ceilings and bathed in light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The 12,000-square- foot, state-of- the-art facility is your destination for health, fitness, wellness and sports performance while you are at Nakoma. If you’re looking for a break from the action, visit The Spa at Nakoma. You’ll find pampering: facials, massages, manicures, hot tub, sauna and steam room. The ambiance melts stress from your shoulders the moment you step inside.

Eat and drink

The Frank Lloyd Wright designed Clubhouse is home to the Wigwam Room – the perfect place to enjoy high-altitude California cuisine while taking in the splendor of the Sierra Nevada surroundings. Enjoy local favorites and inspired seasonal specials for breakfast lunch and dinner. Or for quicker fare – like smoothies, salads and pizza, the Altitude Bistro + Bar is a fresh take on even fresher cuisine and crafted cocktails. No matter which dining option you pick, you’ll find options to suit your dietary needs and healthy lifestyle. 

And more

The property offers a variety of venues for meaningful gatherings with friends, family or for business. The Inn at Nakoma can accommodate your family reunion, host your perfect wedding day, plan your company retreat and organize your golf tournament fundraiser.
