The Cedar House Sport Hotel

Where conscious and connected hospitality meets awe-inspiring adventure.

With a mission to inspire authentic and positive connections to the natural world and to one another, the 40-room Cedar House Sport Hotel honors its beautiful surroundings. In the heart of Truckee in Lake Tahoe, Cedar House Sport Hotel is rooted in fresh mountain air, pure water and irresistible mountain trails. This hotel’s founding philosophy is about the reinvigoration that comes from unplugging your devices and focusing on that most electric of all connections — the ones between you and the people you love. It’s a sensibility that informs everything at the property, from its design, to the community dinners, to the heartfelt greetings and engagement from the warm staff.

What it's like

As you approach the Cedar House Sport Hotel, the scenic Sierra Mountains help set the stage for an idyllic stay. Truckee is Tahoe’s winter wonderland — a hotspot for activities ranging from the adrenaline-charged to the restful & reflective. A small town with an authentic vibe that pulls you in and makes it hard to leave. It’s a feeling that intensifies when you step foot in the magnificent and soaring lobby of the hotel.  Each piece of decor and each architectural feature here is warm and welcoming. Stroll around the property, and you’ll notice that the gorgeous wood and sumptuous leather creates a beautiful contrast with the stark white snow (or the green grass) and the clean lines of your guestroom. This property features the convenience you need, but the emphasis is on the irreplaceable human touch. The owners, Patty and Jeff, live onsite and they work hand-in-hand with the tight-knit and tenured staff. When you’re at Cedar House Sport Hotel, you’re not just a guest, you’re a part of a community.

European elegance with a personal touch and a seriously-eco ethos.
