Over the weekend, Jen and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Everline Resort & Spa in North Lake Tahoe. This beautiful property is situated in secluded Olympic Valley with spectacular views of the sprawling mountains near Palisades. This property is bookable with the World of Hyatt Program as the hotel is part of Hyatt’s Destination portfolio.
This spectacular property is located in Olympic Valley in North Lake Tahoe. Still in California, the property sits a quick 45 min drive to Reno, and about an hour plus to South Lake Tahoe. The property is located a short drive from the lake itself, leaving you in a private and secluded valley with majestic views from your room.
Being in California, the property is clean and doesn’t have the hustle and bustle of properties that have a casino. In contrast to the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort and Spa, the Everline Resort provides a clear luxurious and relaxing vibe. The location is simple A1 for a fall getaway.
This property is bookable with World of Hyatt Points. Room rates for our stay were upwards of $300 per night even for off peak season. Contrarily, room rates from this property hover between 21,000-29,000 points per night as Everline Resort is a category 6 Hyatt Property.
The Property & Room
At first glance, the property was majestic and would be perfect for a winter getaway. The lobby was built with coziness and a winter fireplace in mind and was visually stunning. The property has several swimming pools and hot tubs available as well as a patio area where kid games were set up. The lobby itself is not connected to the guest rooms so you will have to take a short stroll outside to get to the other building. This could be a hassle during snow season, but for the fall it was a quick minute walk.
On the walk to the guest room buildings, there is a small shopping area known as retail row. Here there is also a café that serves coffee and lattes along with basic essentials and simple cooking supplies. The cooking supplies could come in handy for those who have a kitchenette in their room.
Jen and I had a cozy Valley View Suite which provide splendid views of the valley along with a fully stocked kitchenette. The Everline Resort has a total of 405 guest rooms and suites. Our suite has a nice living room and separate bedroom along with a large bathroom with both a shower and a separate bath tub. The floors were made of a nice marble that made the bathroom feel a bit more modern than the rest of the room which felt slightly dated. Overall our accommodations were both spacious and cozy!
As a Hyatt Globalist Jen and I received complimentary breakfast which was served at Cascades each morning. Cascades is the property’s break buffet spot serving a large collections of charcuterie, pastries, fruits, and several hot items. Breakfast starts at $24 for continental and $36 for the full buffet. Our complimentary breakfast was good for the full buffet. Over the course of our 4 night stay, we saved almost $300 on breakfast thanks to our World of Hyatt status.
Breakfast is typically served from 7am-11am each morning on the lower floor of the lobby building. Here, you still get a spectacular view of Olympic Valley and the property’s pools. During our visits, the food was very solid and the wide variety of options was definitely a surprise. Cascades only had pour over coffee available as their espresso machine was broken for the week, but everything else went as planned.
For those craving a smaller bite, you can also check out the property’s Cafe which doubles as a general store. Here you can find small pastries and sandwiches along with gelato and coffee. In the later part of the day, the resort also operates a high end fine dining spot (definitely outside our budget) and a casual bar with the typical pub offerings. While there are several options, I definitely recommend driving off the property for dinner.
The Everline Resort had a solid gym with a nice selection of both cardio and strength machines. The gym also had dumbbells up to 50lbs providing sufficient equipment for a vacation workout. If you’re adventuring in Lake Tahoe from Spring – Fall, I would also recommend picking out a few hikes. If you’re in the mood for a swim, the property also operates several swimming pools and hot tubs.
In addition to a fully stocked gym, the property also offers “Retail Therapy” with a small strip of stores knows at Retail Row. You can also rent a bike from the property and pedal along the paved trails on the property’s massive estate. Overall whether you’re here to relax, adventure, or a mix of both, there’s an endless amount of things to do.
The Everline Resort and Spa was a splendid property tucked away in serene Olympic Valley in the North Lake Tahoe area. Being on the California side, the lack of casinos really added to the experience. The property was in off-peak season as many were awaiting snow season so we had lots of privacy. The staff was warm and friendly. This property was definitely enjoyable and I can see myself coming back in the future.
