I was excited to be extended an invite from the Hyatt Regency in Lake Tahoe to enjoy a weeekend of Wellness on the Water with a few other bloggers. One of the great things about living in the Bay Area is how close Tahoe is to San Francisco. In only a 3 1/2 hour car ride you can head to Tahoe for skiing during the winter or spend time on Lake Tahoe for the summer. I had not been up to Tahoe since my ski trip in early January of this year (more here). The best part about Tahoe is how much there is to do in Tahoe during the Sumer – between hiking, kayaking, sailing or just having some downtime on the beach, you really can’t go wrong up there.
We drove up late on Friday after work and got to Tahoe just as the sun was setting. We (Hej Doll, A Lady Goes West, Whimsy Soul, and This Is My Happiness) had dinner at the Sierra Cafe and afterward headed down to the fire pit to roast some marshmallows and enjoy the stars.
The next day we got up to head out on a 3-hour kayak tour to explore some hidden beaches around the lake. We had a great guide, Charlie from Move Mountains, he took us through this fun paddle way and his passion for Lake Tahoe was infectious. It was gorgeous weather on the Lake with the temperatures almost in the 80’s. Lake Tahoe is so clear you can see straight down to the bottom.
Afterwards, we had lunch on the beach and then headed out for an afternoon hike! We chose Flume Trail in hopes of seeing a few wildflowers and animal life. Keep in mind the altitude when hiking up in Tahoe, our hike was not strenuous but it does take a bit to get use too.
We had dinner Saturday night at the Lone Eagle Grill, which I highly recommend. The food was superb and you have to try their house drink, the Golden Eagle, and you can’t miss their Bake Tahoe desert which is a combination of marshmallows (are we detecting a theme?) brownies and chocolate sauce. It was divine!
After dinner, we all headed to the hot tub to soak after the long day of activities. The last day was spent indulging in a morning sail before we headed to the Stillwater Spa for a relaxing massage. It was the a great weekend getaway. We were able to pack in so much over just a weekend. It was the perfect balance of outdoor activity and healthy indulgence.
A big Thank You to the Hyatt Regency team for hosting all of us over the weekend and providing us the opportunity for such a fun trip!
