Five charming two-story chalets set on the mountainside nestled amongst towering 70-plus-foot Sierra Pines and quaking Aspen. Children play in the heated outdoor 40-foot pool. A family of guests are grilling near our manicured lawn at one of two gas BBQ and picnic areas. And you, you're relaxing in the outdoor hot tub while your partner is poolside surfing the internet via our high speed Wi-Fi. That's just part of the quintessential Classic Tahoe experience that generations of families have been returning to at the Pine Cone Resort since 1955.
Now you can enjoy that Classic Tahoe experience, that includes free "Ultra High-speed Commercial Wi-Fi Internet Service," Cable TV with DVD players and a library of free movies, plus a full-range of many other modern amenities (e.g., WDSL in your fully-furnished suite, by the pool, out on the decks). PLUS, free to our guests: free access to the nearby 24/7 Anytime Fitness Center, a handful of mountain bikes (with helmets), two-person kayak and canoe (with life-preservers and paddles). In the winter with at least 4-inches of snow, we offer free to all our guests free use of our new 270-ft-long, 30-ft-drop snow slide (PineConeResortSnowSlide.com)
Most of our units are dog-friendly (seven with pass-thru doggy doors to adjacent 6-ft cyclone fence enclosed dog runs), so the four-legged members of your family are welcome too! Affordable dog sitting services are also available within easy driving distance.
The Pine Cone Resort is five two-story chalets, each with four fully-furnished apartments. Each apartment has a hand-crafted natural stone or brick fireplace, kitchenette (with four-burner stove/oven), living room, bedroom, and full-bathroom. Each apartment suite is a family unit that can sleep four to six people. The bedrooms generally have both a King or Queen and Twin bed, and most of the living rooms have a double/full fold-out sofa bed and twin bed. Click here to look at photos of the rooms and grounds, take a virtual tour or view our apartment floorplan.
The Pine Cone Resort is an oasis of quiet, cool summer breezes in Zephyr Cove on the scenic southeast shore of Lake Tahoe, less than a mile from two of the nicest beaches on Lake Tahoe, and just ~2 miles to the casinos and Heavenly Ski Gondola in South Lake Tahoe and Stateline.
